    I see a few folks on here talking about hitting slots or VP machines for several wins during a single session that are not Hand Pays and racking up big winnings ($2000.00+) on the same machine... my question is if you happen to hit a Hand Pay and have a lot of $ on a machine will this Money go on your Hand Pay W2G or will it just be the Hand Pay $. I would like to be ready (if I ever get so lucky) so I can cash out during the games to keep the old Tax man away as much as Possible. Whats your Take ??

    The amount of the hand pay is just for that one spin (or series). It will not include any credits already on the machine.

    As said, handpay will only (normally) only be for the amount of the jackpot. And other money will still be on the machine. If for some very rare situation they need to clear the machine, the other money would be cash or tito. W2-g is ONLY for the jackpot. Most casinos lock up the machine until you get paid. Some places (like Cherokee) give you a slip and release the machine while they go get your money.

    Some people forget to cash out their machine following a hand pay. For example, if you have $60 in the machine and hit a jackpot for $1500, your machine will lock up and an attendant will be by to pay you the $1500. Then, another slot person will unlock your machine. Your $60 is still in the machine.

    Yes, that can happen. Many slot attendants will tell you that you have to "play it of off" meaning one more play to remove the winning spin. You don't. I usually do, for the minimum amount. Though, I have seen it hit again while they are standing right there. And yes, if you do not hit the cash out button, it will still be on the machine.

    I was at paris last year and this lady hit for $1500 on a penny slot and the guy came and he told her to spin it again and she hit for another $1300... I was sick to my stomach to see someone hit $2800 in matter of mins apart..To make it more crazy, she was only there for 3 mins before the first one hit.

    I have seen and experienced back-to-back hits so often, now I always do another spin after a handpay.
