    My Trip Report

    We live about 30 minutes away from Mohegan/Pocono, It was our anniversary yesterday so we decided to do Dinner and a casino visit. We did Outback first and then the 10 minute drive to the casino. My wife is a slot player with the luck/karma to be able to pick a machine that treats her well.:nworthy:
    We are both Low Rollers, but because of her abilities to leave Mohegan with more than we came with, 90% of the time, she usually has $40 or $50 free play available to her. So with her $40 FP I gave her $40 and I left her to try and get one of the few CRAPPY pay table VP machines. They are located in the lower casino (the original casino) against the far wall. After about a 30 minute wait, I was able to get one. I was playing .5 and .25, making a $20 last. Because of the PA liquor laws, comp drinks are soda/water for low level players.
    (Note: It seems that for my wife's Luck to kick in, I have to be in the building but not sitting close by or playing adjacent machines. :nono:)
    After a half hour or so, the guy playing next to me, asks if I'd watch his machine, saying he'd be right back. I agreed, assuming he was doing a bathroom break. He left his credits in the machine as well as his players card. After about 30 to 40 minutes the poker machine automatically (?) cashed him out. Since nobody was there to take the voucher, the machine kept beeping. :thumbsdown: After putting up with the beeping for another 20 minutes, I removed the voucher and placed it on the button console. (It was for $20.75). After waiting another 20 minutes or so, I flagged a slot machine attendant and explained the situation to her. She took his card and the voucher and disabled the machine (?); explaining that if he didn't claim the voucher it would be mailed to him. He never did come back while I was there.
    My good deed payed off a little, I cashed out up $60, and my wife parlayed her slot play into $150.00 voucher. Not a staggering win but IMO any time you leave a casino with more than you walked in with is a good time. :nworthy:
    Hopefully, my good deed karma will follow us to Las Vegas in April. :)
