    I was texting with Plee the other night about a possible million dollar hit on a penny Wolf Run machine at Pechanga. We were both trying to find any reference to this hit, but every source came up blank. Plee sent me this link which shows the past two recorded million dollar score at Pechanga. Apparently, that Golden Pagoda $1 machine has paid out 3 one million dollar scores so far. Holy shit! I am surprised the Indians have not hooked up chains and ripped those machines out themselves!

    So did you confirm it got hit for a million a third time yesterday? Also the article says that the first two jackpots were hit on two different games. That "Golden Pagoda" and Stevie's favorite machine..."The Walking Dead"

    Watching this meter go up is pretty crazy right now. Looks like a W2G every 5 seconds.

    And if you go to their facebook, they show a guy that won $32k on Ultimate X. But not just any Ultimate X...a gigantic Ultimate X! :evillaugh

    They also have a pic of a $25 Royal...:faint:

    I ended up not going last night...something about it being Friday 13th made me stay home...lol. I will try to confirm next time I go...most likely tomorrow night.

    There was another article I read that said 5 slots have paid $1 mil since Thanksgiving last year...including the two from the article above. Of those 5, three were from the Golden Pagoda machines...all from the same bank of machines...crazy!

    The back of the latest Casino Player, or maybe Slot Player, magazine shows a local guy who hit 2 $100k royals at Pechanga within a month or so...both were from $25 VP machines. I didn't even know Pechanga had $25 VP, until I checked it out last week...sure enough, I found two machines that have multi-denom up to $100.


    Edit: I don't know what I was smoking, popping, or drinking, but looking into it more, there are not 5 $1 mil hits since Thanksgiving 2014...only 3...lol. That is still a lot though.

    There are two gigantic UltX machines there, that I know of...both are 5 cent or 25 cent denom (not positive, but pretty sure)...so $32k is definitely a huge hit on those big UltX machines.

    He hit a Royal with 8X on 3-line dollars. So at least one of them had that denomination at the time he hit it. It's possible they removed dollars later. Casinos panic after big Ultimate X hits sometimes. I didn't take any pics because I didn't hit shit, but I briefly played Double STP at Green Valley Ranch on one of those monstrosities last trip. Fun novelty, but I thought they were a pain to play, buttons too far apart.

    Hmm as a slot player maybe I should be going here. Not too far from San Diego/Dana Point/Carlsbad, which are all places I love to go for a few days.

    I avoid them on purpose because I don't want anyone from across the casino yelling and laughing at my bad VP skills...lol...it's bad enough they can laugh at me while standing right behind me.

    If you find yourself there on a Friday or Saturday night, the HL slot room is lit up like an EDM club...handpay lights flashing all around the room!

    Pechanga is also Cleo2 heaven for all the Cleo2 fans...there are at least 2 dozen Cleo2.

    I'm there just as much, but I usually only get to go there at night...around 9 or 10...and only stay for 2-3 hours.

    I asked a bunch of dealers and pit people, last night, and none of them knew anything about anyone hitting $1 mil last week. I guess the guy from Pala was smoking crack.
