    Back in May I played the $1 Top Dollar ($3/spin) at NYNY was very profitable.
    Tried the $5 ($15/spin) and it always drained my bankroll and never hit the bonus.

    Just got back from PH. Played the $1 Top Dollar machine and rarely hit the bonus.
    On the final morning, while my wife was paying off the marker I played the $5 Top Dollar machine. After about 8 spins I finally hit the bonus.

    The first offer was 15 Credits. I am thinking WTF. On a $15/spin the offer is only 15, but I forgot its $5 per credit so it is really $75.
    This is my first bonus on the $5 machine and there is no way I am taking this offer.
    The 2nd offer was again 15 credits.....No way. Third offer is 20 credits.
    Better but still was not interested.

    Fourth and final offer....the 5 lights up......the 20 lights up.....the 100 lights up!!!!!!!:beer::beer::beer::beer:

    Cashed out with a nice win.:thumbsup:

    So how much did you win? My husband and I always throw in $100.00 each and play a $5.00 machine-only in Vegas. The most we ever won was $850.00. We were very happy with that because we are mostly .25 or 1.00 vp players.

    125 total credits * $5 = $625 Win

    Awesome. We all love wins like that, but did you end up putting it all back in? We usually do.

    You say 'After about 8 spins you finally hit the bonus.

    I play some lower denomination slots and don't see bonuses after 20+ spins.
    Do the bonuses come more frequent with the higher denomination?

    Back in May I dumped a LOT of cash in the $5 machine and never hit the bonus. Then I tried it again on this past trip.

    The reference to "finally" was based on all the play done back in May.

    As long as you didn't put in over $500 this past May, your still ahead. Like most of us, your probably down over all for your visits there. I would guess I'm down $50,000+ in mine. And maybe that is all I am willing to remember.

    That was why it was a bit frustrating in May, because I probably did put in close to $500 without hitting the bonus.


    Yeah, I am down overall, but way up in the amount of fun I have. :thumbsup:

    That's awesome! I've never played the $5 but have played the $1....won $250 on it from the bonus. I didn't take either of the first few offers either. Maybe if I get ahead this trip I will take the plunge and try the $5 one!
