    My Trip Report

    Calgary has it's fair share of casinos but the variety of VP is poor. There is only one STP VP machine in Calgary that I know of so I play that when ever I can. Last night, I got the chance again and after dumping 300 into the machine, it finally start hitting and I moved up to 1 dollar play, so 18 bucks a hit. I got up to 1500.00 but worked it back to 1000.00 and cashed out. Time to leave, right? nooooo, it's only getting warmed up and will puke out more. Start playing again, I said... It will be fun and I'll win more, I said...
    Well, after dumping that 1000.00 I cashed out back into the machine, I hit the only machine that will pay me, the ATM. Pull out another 500 and the first 300 disappears quickly. The next 100 sees a change. Lots of straights, lot's of 3OAK's and then a a couple 4OAK's and the multiplier is hitting more consistently, enough to keep me floating around 500-600 credits. I had been dealt 3 aces a number of times but nothing happened but then I was dealt 3 aces with a 8x multiplier. I stared at that machine and mumbled "c'mon you bitch, you owe me"... and hit the deal button and I see this.

    Took a while to get paid but I got the hell out of there and went for Chinese. Great night and no tax!

    Great hit! 9/5 isn't bad for a place with little VP competition. And no taxes is awesome too!

    Thanks all for the kind words. I wanna go back there but what can one really expect with that machine? I'll never have a hit like that again on that machine.
