Dizzy has what, 5 machines? I can’t recall a single time I ever had to wait to use one of its machines, even in a full server… so the “machine hogging” argument shouldn’t even be valid here.
I frequently have large player models stand on my screen to prevent me from seeing it, and then attempt to immediately steal the machine (and its jackpot) after I fail it. This happens way too much. Its really a kick in the face when you’ve spent a lot of time and tokens building up one machine’s jackpot to have a bunch of toxic players try to steal it.
- Add a small cooldown of a couple seconds to re-claim your machine (only on Dizzy or the fish one) possibly only when other machines are available that way people can’t indefinitely hog.
- Treat it like the casino and make the jackpot universal to all players. This will make people rush to try and win the jackpot before the rest of them, making machine stealing pointless but allowing a somewhat competitive aspect to it in situations where people keep failing. Could be fun, could be annoying.
- Make the jackpots user-specific so its the same amount regardless of the machine you use. I like this one the most.
