Slots of Fun

Over the weekend, I visited my folks and I was FORCED to go with them to the local casino, which is about a 3 minute drive from their home (Californians measure distance in time, not in miles).

I had $60 on me that I was prepared to lose....I was hoping for the best, but expecting the worst...It's not that I'm a pessimist, it's just that Lady Luck turned her back on me, once she found out that I was a big ol 'Mo.....B*tch!

I swear, the first machine I sat down at made me a winner on the 3rd spin. The $10 that I put in the machine grew to $60 (jealous much?). I was playing some Tiger themed machine and hit the Super Bonus screen or whatever it was called...I cashed out and moseyed on over to my all time favorite slot machine: SUN AND MOON.

Again, within under 5 plays, I had hit the bonus round, which on this machine means you get free spins...since I triggered the bonus feature with all 5 sun & moon symbols, I scored 50 free spins...and when I was down to 25 spins, I scored ANOTHER 50 free spins....so I sat back and just watched the credits add up...sadly, I was playing a 2 cent machine and not the $1 machines, but when all of the free spins had finished, I was ahead $150...I cashed out and told my parents that I was Re' Ta Go !!

I spent the rest of our time there following my folks around, watching them lose all of their money.... I did play one other slot machine for at least 30 minutes...it was the Wheel of Fortune game...this time I was playing 50 cents at a time...I walked away from this machine $15 richer...just call me Daddy Warbucks...or Daddy works too.

So, I went home with $200+ more in my pockets than what I left home with....not too shabby.

Oh, on our way out of the casino, I showed my Dad which machine I won the $150 on. There was a guy sitting on the machine...he had just won 100 free spins....he told us that he literally sat down and put $5 in the machine, and on the 1st spin triggered the bonus round.

I've got a feeling that that machine is going to be either reprogrammed or replaced soon.

I'm a slot whore! My favorite machine is "TOP DOLLAR" where one gets to determine which 'offer' is the best. When one lands on three TOP DOLLAR flags a nice voice gives one 3 offers... but you don't know what the dollar amounts are until you hit "next offer" to see what you could have won. I'm making it sound complicated but it makes me wet my panties every time in suspense!

So? Are we all going out for pancakes or what?!

Christopher said...

Romach: Hey buddy, have you been sipping the sauce? ...and the answer to your question is: the "dirty" bit!

Smell YOU! I just don't gamble. I have a feeling I'd get addicted, and lose.

Not too shabby at all!

I won $430 in Vegas once, which was my biggest gambling win ever. I spent it all on a very nice and very expensive dinner for me and 2 friends...fun!

The slots are addictive, really. Too addictive.
