    Met up with my local slot machine wife--Triple Double Wild Cherry, or Sherry (cue Steve Perry) as I call her--and was about to call it a night when the payline suddenly read 7/2X/2X for $720. :woot:

    After a brief wait for the attendant to return with the cash he counted out the loot into my palm. I tipped the nice fellow 20 (which he had broken down into a ten and 2 fives already), cashed out the remaining $65 of my original hundo still on Sherry and made my leave for the eve. Not the biggest handpay mentioned on here, but a fortune up in my neck of the woods!

    Forgot to mention that I was wearing my VMB wristband! Nothing like winning in style!

    Nice hit!

    But shame on your casino for giving you a handpay there!!! In Vegas (and most other places) you would have saved a tip without one!

    That's true. I just skipped the celebratory $20 shopping spree at Dollar Tree on the way home.
