Ok so I used to only play blackjack and roulette, and rarely touched slots. After reading this forum in between my last trip and the one I just got back from, I decided I wanted to play some Video Poker and Slots!!! My first night, I sat solo waiting for my friends to land and get to the hotel, and played Video Poker at the casino bar. I put in a $20 and got 3 drinks and sat there going up and down, it was a fun way to kill time and get drinks quick since you don't have to wait for a cocktail waitress to roll around, the bartender is right there. I decided to experiement with some slots this trip too, I hit a nice bonus at PH on some duck slot, where the lights went back and forth and you had to hit "STOP", it kept going up levels until I got to the top level and hit the 2nd highest prize, ended up being like $100. I was also randomly putting in a $20 and doing $5 a spin, and would hit on my first or second spin, and cash out almost $40-60 up. Ok, so on to the last day, we have 30 minutes to kill before grabbing a taxi to the airport to leave, and we decide to head down to the Flamingo casino (where we stayed) to play one last round of slots. We liked the Willy Wonka slot we played a day before, and were heading towards that. A bank of big bright and loud Wizard of Oz slots got us distracted and we sit down. Before I can even put my money in the slot, my girlfriends machine starts going crazy making noise flashing BIG WIN BIG WIN! hits for $1600 on her first spin!!!!! Hang around for a celebratory Coors Light, cash out, and head to McCarren!!!!
