On Friday night at Caesars I decided to try the Lord of the Rings slot with a $2 Million dollar plus progressive. I knew to get the top progressive I would have to play the $3.50 max bet and get 2X/2X/2X on the middle line. I played and played and the machine was just so dead, eating up my money real fast. Against my better judgement, I decided to switch to a $1.05 bet figuring at least I would be able to sit longer and make a night of it instead of running through my money fast. First spin on the $1.05 bet = 2X/2X/2X on the middle reel. I couldn't believe that I hit that progressive, which now only paid off $200+. I just stared and stared at this. The woman next to me tried to console me by telling me it probably wouldn't have hit with the $3,50 bet. Any thoughts on this. I'm still upset over this.
