Several times over the past few years I have had the below problem on VP machine(s). I have had it to happen at several casinos and on several machines at the same casino. I am prone to think it is user error but I can not determine how/why it is my fault.
I will be playing and I will hold (or attempt to hold) first card from the left and or maybe first and second card from the left along with maybe the 4th or 5th card. As soon as i hit the frist and second button (to hold) the screen goes "return to game". Meaning I lost the cards I was attempting to hold and actually loose the complete game. The screen goes from showing 5 cards cards as stated above to "return to game" screen. When I go to return to game it shows my 5 original cards including the ones I was holding (still showing hold on the cards) but I am into a new game now. So the net result is I loose that one "play/deal".
I really think I am doing something (without realizing it) at the start of the hold with my left hand (fingers). The problem only happens when I hold starting from the left-never from the right, but I don't know what and even if I am doing something off beat why does the machine react as it does.
I have probably done a poor job explaining-----not that it matters but I play only DB VP.
The faster I play the more frequent it happens. I may play for 40 hours (total) without it happening then it will happen several times within a few hours.
Anyone want to take a shot as to what I may be doing to cause this. Surely I am not the
only person this ever happens to-----even if it is user error.
