After sitting through a hot and humid 1st half of a boring 4th preseason game in Miami, I headed over to the local casino (Seminole Hard Rock) for some gaming action. The gaming sucked, but this post is more of an observation about the Top Dollar slot machine. I was playing a standard three reel Top Dollar slot and was fortunate enough to hit several Top Dollar bonuses. As most of you know, you are given up to 4 offers of bonus credits and have the option to either "Take Offer" or "Try Again". Also, I believe that it is well known by now that the machine will suggest the "best play" after each offer down in the section that shows your credits in the machine. Normally, I would follow the "best play" suggestion; however in this session, I decided to ignore the best play suggestion. I had four separate bonus rounds where the "best play" was to take the 3rd offer, usually somewhere around 40 credits, but I chose to try again and three of the four times ended up getting a better offer between 55 and 85 credits with one lower offer of 30 credits. What have others experience been with the "best play" suggestion and whether you follow the suggestion or just go by your gut?
