Not that I'm doing it (much) any more, but when forcusing a betcom do people actually play the board or just hi-lo on mega features or whatever until killed so once it's taken enough money to go in you make your profit (or not)?
Play the board unless it's not red
Depends on which betcom, some are capable of potting by other means

Except Oliver's twist which doesn't go red...
Speaking specifically about SWING MY AXE - It kind of depends what mood I'm in, if I want the illusion of some gameplay at least, I'll indulge it in a few boards that clearly aren't going anywhere. Most of the time though I'll just whack it on £1 play and play the appalling snakes and ladders entry board until it gives a MEGA START with the logo red.

Also, I'd rather take a normal top feature at say £60 in, than force it out on red which could cost £120+, and then still go flat anyway - so you could argue it's worth taking a couple of boards anyway.
Forced one in 25 seconds today
Live and let pie £1 in
That board offers £30 on top board and £25 shot
Decide I'm going for it, 2 spins later it hits £100 cash shot
Winner Bakes All is red, have I missed a flash? Had someone done their balls?
MS went flat but certainly can't complain with that
Didn't even bother for a board after so £99 up

Also had a JJ cost £23 for MS also flat
That was the next pub too

They are a total gamble though let's be honest
I had a twist open Rags to a riches first board and £39 meter
It cost £135 for a flat
They are exactly that, you can have some great results on them ive made 300+ on betcoms alone in hours before but they're becoming pretty much unplayable I mean look at jackpot jaws it doesnt matter what state you find it in you're never making on it! If I averaged out all my betcom forces I'd be down. There's about 5 machines near me that are actually "playable" and I'm just starting to wonder whether it's time for me to stop.
Every time I play a betcom I come away vowing to stop. Even if I've won a bit they're so boring.

Bring back games with strategy like hypalinx or Triple DOND

I play the emulator for interesting/fun/challenging fruit machines, the real things are just for beer money and a slight diversion on a night out really.
I'm doing that more and more. There's no money to be made and no game play.
I used to have loads that were great on a Sunday morning... until someone else realised this and went round Saturday night and I can't be arsed to catch them as it's a fucking betcom have it!

Been planning for months to go round late on a Saturday night when nobody else out just to see how well I'd do.
Well last night was a bust out:

First a Live and Let Pie that was a reliable earner - absolutely dead - cost £135 (and expected it to cost more) for a flat £100.

Took on an Olivers Twist - £110 for a flat £100.

Now another Live and Let Pie that was a reliable earner - well walk in the pub and at a distance see the 3 boards - funny a green surround never mind get a drink - f*ck it's now a toastbusters - never mind same machine in same place. Nope £150 in for a flat £100.

So that's two reliable machines I probably won't revisit and a big loss.
DONK
£95 ain't a big loss. Get over yourself. Is "reliable" the new word for tucked?

No mate reliable just means usually profited on the unit in that location although most are NOT chain pubs, etc.

3 flat 100s in a row p*ssed me off not the money
3 flats in a row pissed u off!!!!!

Is there a laughing smiley face I can use???
Maybe lol or lolol or :D
I just sometimes wonder what planet people play fruits on.
Played a twist earlier.85 for 150. In a spoons. Moved one step to the side, for a Toast right next to it
it.. 235 for 150. Av it.
