    Where are you playing Stevie? Just curious why on your pic of the 4OAK, it says win 255?

    Nice win though!

    Edit: Stevie is playing freeplay, and his original bet is also being returned to him. I was confused at first too.

    And damn, "Walking Dead" is still acting like your ATM!

    I think MGM/Cosmo does it this way. CET definitely doesn't. I dunno how many properties do it this way nationwide. The advantage of the "reimburse you after the spin" feature is...you usually can yank your card at any time and take the remaining free play with you. The other most common system (CET, etc.), you have to download the freeplay (or insert a voucher), and once you download it, you're stuck playing through it.

    My g/f was freaking out when she accidentally downloaded $55 instead of $5 of our $100 freeplay onto one slot machine at Fitzgerald's Tunica in October as the input buttons were apparently sticky. After calming her down a bit, we decide it isn't worth trying to correct via a 3rd party and pull out about $51 from it on your typical penny slot ("African Dusk" from Aristocrat I think), so crisis averted... If you google "African Dusk slot machine" a youtube from fellow VMBer dvandentop looks to be the top result. :evillaugh

    Obviously the Tunica scenario I described is another good reason to do it the way MGM does, even though the win result of 255 definitely looks odd.

    So it's been horror show since those early wins. 300 here 200 there. Just dropped 500 at craps. Texted Firstkill and he's having similar luck. Dinner at Gallagher's to try and break it up.

    Nice! I have had no more luck at slots since my Top Dollar hit, earlier today. Let's all get together and pool for a spin on a $500 slot!

    Food is good. Not for lack of trying brother. I need better mental attitude. I might try some black jack to shake things up. And no that's not a desperation move.

    Gallager's nearly as good as winning money. Bartender better than either.

    I cannot remember playing with such scared money. It's crazy, but just can't seem to win at anything. Down 2 grand.
