    Recently I have become addicted to watching peoples slot bonuses on YouTube. SDGuy, Diana Evoni, and The best slot hits are my favorite youtube channels.

    So does anyone else on the board actively video their bonuses of find themselves watching them on Youtube? Thinking about tracking or photographing some of my play for both the entertainment value and gambling history tracking purposes.

    I haven't up to now, but I have to admit that was very amusing. :thumbsup:

    Those bonus rounds are typically quality drinking time, but I could multitask and film it while I'm drinking as long as I don't spill my drink. :drunk:

    I'm looking forward to some very entertaining filmography from your upcoming trip. :beer:

    I'll watch some on YT if I'm really bored but after about 5 mins I get bored of that as well.

    I've never taken a video of any of my bonus rounds, only a picture here and there if it's a good win.

    I will watch a video if there is a certain game I am interested in or found a game that I am not too sure of with payout etc. The problem with many of the videos is that the person playing just drags out the video by recording every penny counted. The new fad with many of the videos recently is yelling or screaming at the machine during the bonus. I guess some feel it is necessary to play up a $25.00 win.

    One trip I recorded a few but then stopped as I thought it was a nuisance to worry about recording instead of playing.

    This previous trip I actually recorded the most I ever had and really enjoyed it.

    Sure it stinks waiting for the bonus round but the wait is worth it when you play back the video time and time again especially at work when sitting on the crapper. :wink2:

    Here is my trip report with lots of video.

    I will sometimes find a video or two of games I forgot about playing. Those are the ones usually late at night after a few. :beer::beer:

    I took a picture of the Staypuft progressive that I hit on Ghostbusters but that's about it. My gf took a pic of a big payout on Lucky Larry Lobstermania 2. Not quite handpays but it's nice to hit for a few hundred.

    I have a crapload of mine on youtube. I love watching others on there as well, Diana evoni's are awesome - check out Nixternet and also Shamus. I'm addicted to their channels. My husband thinks it's so funny when I know who's video it is just from hearing their voices - I don't even have to be watching it to know exactly who recorded it! I have way too much free time on my hands. my channel name is DockfamCentral if you want to see them. I have a lot of small ones on there too.

    I love watching those videos too. Does anyone working for the casinos in Vegas give you the stink eye or care in the least if you take pics or videos? I go to the casinos in Kansas City. If they see you trying to take a pic they are all over you. Heaven forbid if you take a video.

    I've never had an issue in Vegas at all...I also film in our "local" up in OK without a problem. I have heard of some people getting asked not to do it but thankfully it hasn't happened to me yet!

    I love watching them too! My favorites are The Shamus of Slots,VegasLowRoller and Casinomannj. :beer: Some of these videos are just entertaining and some also explain more about the game being played and the different bonuses.

    I do occasionally as well. I've only been asked to stop recording maybe twice over the last year.

    There's a pretty good community around slot bonus videos. Shamus, DProxima, Nyphinix13, CasinomanNJ and plenty of others. They grew as a group about 200% in viewership from February to October last year.

    I set up channels under the YouTube Partner Program as the only network that currently has a focus on slot channels. We have a hub channel that uploads some of the best videos (100X and above wins only) from our partners in an effort to drive traffic to their channels because sometimes these channels can be hard to find.

    I totally enjoy winning pictures posted in TRs but no way I would go watch a YT of somebody's slot win video.

    Just me I guess. If you enjoy it, more power to ya!:thumbsup:
