    My Trip Report

    Ever have those gambling days where you can't lose? Well today was one of those days for me.


    Now that wife and I have relocated back to The Ville. I decided to make a trip today to HSI while I am on vacation. It started rough down $300 early on VP.

    I did the walk of shame to Atm pulling another 200 to get even combined with free play of $60.

    Five minutes later I managed to pop not one but two progressive Jackpots on nickel slots. The second I hit while waiting for my hand pay.

    Then I got a quick hit on some $2 Boner Deluxe. With one near miss.

    For another $800. Finally I went up to HL room for some Blackjack at $25 level and scored another $350. All told a nice 5500.00 swing in 60 mins. Walked out with $5800

    A couple of trinkets for the wife in form of jewelry and $3800 locked away for Sept Vegas trip.

    Good job. However, I am slightly curious on why the machine pays weird cents since it is a nickel machine. Did you hit some jackpots that made it that way?

    I think he hit the progressives.

    I'm going to Belterra on Thursday. Maybe I should rethink that and to HSI instead! Congrats!

    Yeah, looks like the progressive increments by pennies.

    And seeing 8/5 Boner Deluxe hurts considering the past. :(

    The back to back slot hits is amazing!!!

    It's a bank of nickel progressives all linked where top prize starts at $2500 and it grows. You basically keep picking from random presents on screen to find star symbols to move up each progressive level. Find all 4 and you win top progressive jackpot.

    For every 4 dollars in coin in it grows a penny.

    Unbelievable picking. I popped the same machine for 3300 in February.
