I'm a giver like that! Uh huh. This isn't a case of bragging. I'm SHARING my experiences, so you can kick back in your La-Z-Boy and live vicariously through Val. I understand that some of you might not feel comfortable leaving your home, touching surfaces that have been touched by a myriad of people in assorted stages of health, eating food touched by other humans' hands, and breathing questionably-filtered air that can't even have SMOKE removed from it. So I will gladly do it for you.
If you want a 100% safe visit to a casino, Val's your go-to gal.
Wednesday afternoon, after lunch, Hick went to the front of the casino, and The Pony and I turned right, to go along the back wall near the restroom area. The first bank of slots I came to, just past the bar, was Wonder 4 Spinning Fortunes. I've never played it, but of the four game choices, I picked my favorite, Buffalo Gold. I put it on all four screens. The minimum bet is $2.40, which is 60 cents per game. I played that a while, getting some bonuses that paid around $27, and $5, and $17. It kept me playing. I had put in a ticket worth $20, and when it ran out, I put in a $20 bill.
I got up to $117. That made me bold, and I upped my bet to the second level, to $4.80, which is $1.20 per game. I was up and down, varying my bet back and forth, when the trend switched to all DOWN. I had $7.88 left when I hit four gold coins for the bonus of 15 free spins. The wheel spin gave me Super Free Games.
That means four screens playing at once, instead of a single screen that’s the regular Free Games bonus. Right away, I started getting two gold coins, which gives an extra 5 games. I was also collecting buffalo heads. I took these pictures to show you my amassing fortune, and that I had SO
MANY free games! Little did I know that I would have something even
better to show you later...
That bonus gave me ALL 15 Buffalo Heads! (First time I ever got all 15.) That means four other symbols automatically turned into Buffalo Heads. Which pay a LOT if you get them all the way across the five columns. AND I was getting the 2X and 3X bonus sunset symbols with them. I also kept getting more free games! A total of 60!
This one screen paid me $18.00 x 24, which is $432.00! As you can imagine, my total winnings were growing rapidly! I snapped that picture, and was then astounded to see THIS ONE come up:
THIS ONE SCREEN ALONE paid me $36.00 x 48, which is $1,728. That's a hand pay! I was having a blast! Sorry for the extreme close-up, but I was distracted by the thought of my VERY FIRST hand-pay. That means it's too much money ($1,200 or more in Missouri), and taxes must be taken out, so you can't just cash out a ticket. The virtual gold coins were cascading across the screen, and those big letters are spelling out MASSIVE WIN.
A cocktail waitress had stopped behind me, commenting along. Not in an intrusive or tip-seeking way, just watching to see what I’d get. She said, “I bet it’s going to be around $8000.” She’s either psychic, or has stood around watching a lot of bonuses!
I finished with $8,629.60. I’m pretty sure that’s going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience! After tax withholding, it was $6,213.32.
More about the pay-off, on Sunday.
Did you hear my jaw hit the table as it dropped? Holey Doughnuts Batman!! That's a fabulous win. I'm grinning from ear to ear for you, now that I've scooped up my jaw.ReplyDelete
Sorry about your jaw! I can contribute to your medical bill! I am still processing this info myself. It's hard to believe that amount.Delete
Well that's one way of making you feel welcome. Congratulations to you. I'm still too chicken, but when I do go I am playing that machine.ReplyDelete
Don't worry, I'm happy to go to the casino for you! The Pony is already asking when we can go back, so he can try one of these slots. Not the exact winner, of course. He had his own success. Which might be a future story.Delete
WOW! I hope Mr. Steven was not watching.ReplyDelete
Oh, he WAS! I had a spate of misfortune the very next day. A series of unfortunate events, but STILL WORTH this big payoff!Delete
