Why does new fishing game always lose money?

Answer: Most fishing games will have a Promotion Period. Promotion period usually appears in the first 7-10 days. So when you try a new fishing game, you will find out that operator always lose and players always win in the first several days. This is to attract more and more players come to play this game. And after 7-10 days, the game will become stable and operator start to win.  (Sometimes not 7-10 days, because it is up to how many players play it. If the game room does not have many players play, the promotion period will be longer. And if many players play it in the first several days, usually when the total coins in reach 100000 coins, the promotion period will be stopped.) In my experience, the promotion period will not cause big losing.Even operator lose, he will not lose a big money.


Why the fishing even on the most difficult setting, often times the percentage payout was well over 100%. ?

Answer: Usually the fishing game will be stable when the fishing game’s payout is around 98.5%.

If the payout is over 100%,please follow the following steps:

First of all, please check other sections’ payout, and check if other section's payout is smaller than 98%.And check the total account, check if the total account is win or lose.

Second, have you changed the game difficult level these days before the payout is over 100%? According to my experience, do not set the game level to the last one. Usually the last level is not stable( it will cause win a lot or lose a lot). And do not change the game difficult levels too often. We usually set a game difficult level and let it run at least 1 month.( (Some fishing games have 8 levels, we usually set level 6 or 7. Other games have 5 levels, we usually set to level 4)

Third, did the machine win a lot in the last several days? If the machine won a lot in the past and it will lose some money later because most fishing games will keep the payout is around 98.5%.

Some fishing game’s setting has a function Game Undulate, please check this setting, and usually we suggest operator set it to Low.

Another reason is the player's attendance rate. If there are a 6P and a 8P machine, both usually has 2-4 players to play it. Then the 6P machine's performance will be better than the 8P machine.

What does the decoder do? And is it better not to have it?

Answer:The first decoder is for operators cooperation. Some operators put fishing games in other's game room and share the income. So the operator keep the decoder and game room side keep the machine. The decoder can set how many days for accounting, such as set 15 days for a decode, so the machine run 15 days and will stop , then the game room need send the accounting infos to operators ,and operator put the accounting infos to the decoder, and decoder will release a code, the game room put the code into the machine, then the machine will run again. In this way, both the operator and game room will know the income. The operator can use the decoder to ask the game room send his sharing . And now the decoder can be used to change the game setting like difficult level, how many credits per coin and so on. So without the decoder, others cannot change some key settings.


I was also told that there is a control system that can be installed into the IGS games, which gives the owner further control on the amount of wins and losses.  Have you heard of this?  

Answer: I have to tell you that Original IGS fishing games donot have this kind of control system.

I know this kind of system, some copy fishing games and some fishing games from other supplier may has a similar system which can for operator to control on the wins and losses. But I do not recommend customer use this system because the feedback from the China market of that kind of system is not good. It is easy to mess the game program. Usually we do not advise customer to install this kind of system.


How to distinguish the original IGS fishing games and Copy IGS fishing games?

Answer: The simply way to distinguish the original IGS or Copy IGS is to check if there is a CF card in the PC. Original has the CF card, Copy does not have. And Chinese market only has Chinese version of IGS original fishing games. If the one you bought from China is an English one, then must be copy.


There are some fishing games similar like IGS fishing games, are they copy versions?

Answer: Some are copy ,some are not. There are many many fishing games in China market, most are similar but still have a little different. Real copy fishing games are 95-100% same of the original and it is not easy to distinguish them.


If I have an old fishing game machines, can I upgrade it to other new fishing games?

Answer: Can upgrade. Some need change cables, some only need replace the PC and IO board. Detailed infos, please contact us.


Can I install bill acceptor and tickets printer in the fishing games?

Answer: Can install. Some operators use bill acceptor and tickets printer to instead coin selector and tickets dispenser. By install tickets printer, need connect a swift box to exchange signal. More details, please contact us.
