I know this issues aswell because I had something similar before, and this BUG is Playmaker itself. Not problem with the action. Well, the problem is pretty easy to fix, because it`s a delay in Playmaker to update Var.

Here is the fix:

1.

Toggle on Action Sequence


Action Sequence allow the actions done step by step.

2.

Download NextFrameEvent Fix, and overwrite in

Assets/PlayMaker/Actions/StateMachine

3.

Add Next Frame Event action Before the Set Variable

You did nothing wrong. Just unzip it to your project and you will find the new playmaker actions.

and to get playmaker variable with bolt need bit more steps:
