    Button slappers!! Especially the ones who sound like a damn woodpecker. You're the reason those machines don't work.
    Screen rubbers who look like they are performing some kind of voodoo ritual. Makes me sad that the casinos won't let you video them-would make a great YouTube video!.
     
    YES! Had a great time, I'm going back!!!!

    On video poker. When people hit the max bet button every spin instead of repeat bet.

    Some of these have already been mentioned, but I guess it wouldn't hurt to repeat them again. LOL

    *Unconsiderate smokers who don't care which direction their smoke is going, especially cigar smokers.
    *Slobs who leave a mess at the machines (cigarette ashes, trash, dirty drink glasses, etc.).
    *Sticky buttons, especially bad when you're playing VP.
    *Players card and bill readers that don't work or takes several tries before it accepts your card/money.
    *Machines that don't make any noises and on the other end of the spectrum those machines where the volume is set to Max and can't be adjusted.
    *Friend(s) of players who sit at adjacent machines watching their friends play, but are not playing. On a related note are those who move chairs from another machine so they can sit and talk with their friend who is playing.
    *Button slappers who pound the buttons so hard that I'm surprise that they don't break.
    *Glare on the screen from the casino lighting that is so bad that I have to move to a different machine.

    But that's a real good way to get your favorite machine that somebody else is camping on. :) :)

    A machine that I really want to play because it 'called to me' (yes I know...) and the card reader then doesn't work.

    When the slot attendant asks you to spin off a jackpot, I know it can be a good "problem" to have but it bugs me for some reason.

    Card readers not working.
    Nothing bonuses.
    Someone playing what I want to play for .10 a spin.
    Someone who smokes me out.
    Lowering your bet and hitting something the very next spin.
    Dirty machines.
    Sound don't work.

    Yeah I'll add a variation on that:

    Someone's playing a machine you want, but you see they only have enough credits left to play a few minutes.

    So you go sit somewhere you can stake out the machine without bugging them.

    Then they run out of credits.

    Then they pull out a $20.

    VP machines that are too loud with no volume button.

    VP machines that have no sound and no volume button.

    VP machines that deal the cards lightning fast with no speed option.

    Okay, I'm not trying to be argumentative or be a snot here, but why in the world would it bother you that a player at a machine next to you hit one button or another, when both have exactly the same effect?

    I can see things such as slapping buttons or rubbing screens being distracting and annoying to nearby players, but pressing one particular button instead of another?

    I think if the machine has sounds on, there is an audible (and quite pronounced) *bing* for each credit registered that way; I would imagine hearing that *bing bing bing bing bing* every time somebody played a hand would get to be a bit much for some folk :goofy:

    LOL, bing-bing-bing is part of the casino experience, like hearing the synthesized Clank-Clank-Clank on a cash-out, or hearing "Another Legendary Jackpot Winner Has Been Born" (tm) interrupting your fave tune on the sound system. :)

    lol true, at least mostly so... I think I’d have to move if I heard that particular bing-bing-bing-bing-bing a few hundred times an hour :goofy:

    I can recall one night sitting next to someone hitting the max button every time and it was driving me out of my mind. Fortunately I have only one recollection of this occurring.

    Another one, on slots where you do 10+ spins and get absolutely nothing... literally 0 back not even 1 credit.
