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.
