Wynn Slots Did Wynn nerf the gold scratchers?

    Has anyone else experienced getting an overwhelming number of 3M gold scratchers in the last 24 hours?

    In my experience, about 20% of gold scratchers are 3M (20% are 8M, just over 50% are 5M, and 5-10% are 12M). I actually recorded every scratcher I was getting for a few weeks (just over 200 scratchers) and these are the %’s I got.

    But today, I’ve had two events where -all six- of my scratchers were 3M. The chance of this happening in any one event are more than 15,000 to 1 based on my previous record. And it happened twice in one day.

    Is this a stealth way that Wynn is nerfing the game?

    Several 3's with an occasional 5 thrown in for me. Which sucks as I've had a bad run and am having trouble clawing my way out of a low chip hole. Can't even complete the scratcher events.

    Yep, agree that today was a majority of 3M's but I did get a couple of 12M's as well so don't think it's a "nerf," but my coins are definitely down lately. Ebb and flow. It's better when I'm patient and don't start spinning 4M on Fire Eagle just to win a 3M scratcher or going in for 60M or 100M on HBHB, again, just to get a measly 3M scratcher.

    More 3M for me. Meh. They likely changed the distribution. Probably tightened the machines a bit too.

    I too feel that they tighted the machines.

    Dragon is totally unplayable now!! Used to be my go-to game, now I have stopped playing it... cant win anything!

    Also I would like to say I never heard the term "nerfed" before playing this app. Is the term seriously that new? Lol

    Everything I play has become more chintzy. Easily noticing dragon orbs not sticking, especially on the first spin. Getting really screwed on the scratchers. Harder to get free spins also.

    It tends to happen just when the special events are on,

    There are extra scratchers to collect but they seem to mess with the odds of getting a higher result.

    It think it would take a lot more than a couple days of play to conclude that Wynn has changed anything about the payout percentages on the slots. Has anyone actually been keeping records of past payouts such that the could draw a statistical conclusion? I personally haven't felt like this part of the game was any different.

    In contrast, the scratchers always seemed to me to have a fairly consistent distributions, which as I mentioned above I did keep track of for a while. I stopped keeping track because the distribution did seem so steady that I was pretty confident that I had figured it out.

    But the scratchers over the past two days have been so wildly out of wack with that distribution that it can't just be normal variance. When you observe over 200 draws of which 20% are 3M over the course of a couple weeks, and then 40 draws where 80% are 3M over a different two days, there's no way those two sets of draws are from the same distribution.

    Again, they do it when they have the holiday scratchers on. It will go back to normal for the normal scratchers. Ive been noticing this all the way back to 4th of July if not earlier.

    I had 4/5 3m the other night, and had 3/5 12m another card.

    We always remember the shit, and forget the good :)

    So what’s the point of the extra scratchers if Wynn is just going to lower payouts?

    I feel like I’ve been getting way more 12mil scratchers ever since they updated the app and the scratchers became all janky and hard to scratch.

    ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

    I would say since the holiday scratchers, I've been hitting about 75% 3M scratchers. And that's on both my account and my girlfriend's account.

    It does seem like they may have also slightly increased the number of 12M scratchers. My scratchers for the last gold event were 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 12. What is the point of changing the distribution so radically?

    I don't think we are forgetting the good. We just happen to be discussing the "shit" right now.
