Trip Report for May 4
I have been visiting this casino since they opened in 2004. I have wonderful memories there with friends and family. I reviewed the hotel last year and now want to share an exceptional day on the slots with you.
A little background on me. I am known as an extreme low roller. I have been know to play 9 cents a spin on the Triple Star 9 line slots back by the gift shop. I do this because I am the driver for my marathon playing friends. THis day I kept moving up my slot choices as I was having a winning day.
Started playing at 5AM with $5 Free Play that ended at 559 AM so I tried one of my favorite quarter slots. Nothing to speak of. Dropped $5 of my own money and walked around for some potential slots. At 6AM I got my $5 Free play for this week and had a little luck but couldn't find what I was looking for. Finally saw a Five Star that was 5th on the row and I had $5. I live on RT 555 so of course I played it. It kept me alive for about an hour when 5Star, 5star, Flag 7 showed up ( DId I mention I was only risking 1 quarter a spin as the day was young?) WELL can you say Happy Dance. 25X80=320=$80. I have seed money. WHOO HOO.
In the meantime, I am getting sicker by the hour. I now know that it is my glasses that I have been wearing since my good glasses broke. I had to go up to the car (parking garage) and lay down several times. I was afraid I had had some rare tropical disease and wouldn't be able to go to Vegas. I couldn't go to buffet with the girls because I was also stuck playing near the bathroom.
I saw a Double Double Diamond that looked like it wanted $3 of my money and sure enough... I hit DDD,cherry, DDD (4X4X10=160=$40=more seed money)
Lucky for me, I spied an active Triple Double Cherry and was tickled when the lady left to eat. It was playing so well that I threw in a few max bets (yes, I know I was going wild but I do that occasionally while a machine is hot and this one was.) An hour into this slot, I hit Triple CHerry offline, Triple Cherry online, Triple CHerry online. OMG, OMG, OMG. I had to do the math as I never max bet.
Well, I can't even get off my chair let alone cash out. The nice guy next to me keeps telling me to cash out or I will put it all back in. Well he doesn't know me very well and I am only playing 1 quarter bets very slowly just to calm down. This takes about 10 minutes.
I go to the cashier and she gives me three $100's, six $20's, and $10. I put it all in my hiding spot but $30. I head to my favorite $1 slot near the cashier. Just then the girls show up and I'm smiling so I flash my wad. They left and I decided to use the $20 bill in my hand. The first machine gives me a cherry, but because it is my favorite and has always been ind to my family I spin until I drop $5. Next one hits $5 on the fifth spin so I pull out even. On to #3 with my $15 TITO, it gives me nothing. On to #4 with my $10 TITO. This is a Triple Diamond, and I had a feeling it was a Triple Win Day, so I played it for a while. I hit cherries and mixed bars, but couldn't get anywhere. I cashed out with $10 TITO. Now I am at the Triple Double Stars. because earlier I had big hit on the Five Stars and another on a Triple Double CHerry, I felt good about this machine. Well, this slot really liked me. It gave me a hit on the average of every five spins for a while. I hit white 7's times three, blue 7's times three, red 7's with two double stars. I was up over $400 on my $10 TITO, when the girls showed up to see if I was ready to go home. HE*L NO!!!, I was on a winning machine and not going anywhere. I took two $20's out of my purse and stuck them in the machines next to me, sat them down next to me, and we all played for twenty minutes. During that time my SIL ran her $20 up to $57 and I hit Triple Star, Red 7, Triple Star with two credits in....get ready for the math. 3x40x3x2=$720. It was great to have someone there to tell me I wasn't dreaming. I just stared at the credits on the machine, too much in shock to do a happy dance. After that the girls played Happy Days and I stayed until they were ready to leave.
I have had my share of losing days here, BUT I have had wonderful times every time that I have played. Yes, this was an exceptional day, but it does happen even to the low rollers.
