Hi. When I am not sure about whether to put my money into a new slot machine, I try the demo mode just to check it out. Several times, I've had the feeling that I was doing really well, but as soon as I switch to real money, my balance starts to go down.
Are online casinos trying to lure us in with a different software just to take our money once we start playing for real?

Agree. Feels like it's so much easier to find the bonus feature on demo as well.

I'm sure it's a trap. There's been cases of people turning 10 bucks into 100,000. Never heard that about real money.

Online casinos want you to play. They don't necessarily want you to succeed.

I work in IT and I don't think they do that. You would have to log in to a completely different game when you switch to real money play, and it doesn't feel like that.
Also, this would basically be cheating on your own customers, and no company in any business can do that over a long time.

then why do I win on demo, and I rarely do on live money?

Demo games must have a better RTP. The results are pretty obvious.

Also, never happens to me that I don't get a bonus round for like 200 spins.

I'd rather prefeer not to but I think this is a case of confirmation bias.

I don't know what that means. Also, why is there no demo live game if th eRTP is the same?

It means that humans tend to respond to only the elements of a picture they look at that they want to see, without recognizing the grander scheme of things.
So, if you play a demo game successfully, and then you switch and lose. you feel vindicated. If you try again and win, you will call it an exception.
In short, people only see what they want to see.

Interesting point. However, it doesn't prove anything. I still play better on demo.

@thomas.tiv You are essentially making my point.
