Just a couple of quick questions on how y'all play?? On slots, do you still play max bet if you don't need to hit the max bet in order to get a bonus game?? I know a lot of slots, with the max bet will give you a bigger payout if you hit the jackpot, but max isn't required for the "extra spins game" or other bonu games... What do you do? Also, on Texas Hold'em Bonus and Ultimate Texas Hold'em... do y'all play th bonus bet and the trips bet?? I typically don't. My wife used to play those all the time.. I see people hit the bonus and get so excited and how that bonus bet "saved them"... On our last trip, I told my wife those bets exist to make more money for the casino, she agreed but thouht it was fun to play them. We did a little expirement... we wen to a Ulimate Texas Hold'em table and designated a separate $100 for just the bonus bets... any bonus bets came from that stack and any bonus winnings went right back into it. She was amazed at how fast it went. Now with that being said, if a dealer asks if you want to bet the "trips" bonus bet and you say no... why on earth do a lot of them continually hound you about?? Do they casinos require them to try and get people to bet those side bets?
