    Last month, I was in Las Vegas for the G2E show (casino industry show). One evening, I met up with some friends for a high limit spin on Wheel of Fortune! We hit the SPIN symbol ... and this happened ...

    I saved the video to celebrate my 1000th slot video on my YOU TUBE channel. I hope you enjoy it! :)

    Uhhh I've been one of the "frequent visitors" to your Youtube channel. Once in a while, when I'm in a real Vegas mood I look at some Youtube videos of slot machine wins. Youtube also gives me the opportunity to find out which new slotmachines I want to try during the next trip. So they're helpful in more than one ways.

    The title of your video is slightly misleading. :nono:

    Hi sfchris:

    It really relies on how you define a JACKPOT. The $1200 level has been adopted primarily due to the level American casinos apply taxes to winnings. Technically speaking, this would be considered $25 shy. Practically speaking, by winning $25 more, we would have taken home far less! I'll be happy with the $1175! :)

    WOF is not a game I have played for years -- but it sure worked out well in high limit for the group of us! A real long shot!

    So Shamus, I like your YouTube channel, but got kinda bored with the IMHO "little" hits and the increase in non "Big Wins" posted. Now there is a crop of slot machine video posters on the net. (DianaEvoni, Best Slot HIts, SDGuy, etc).
    It seems like the advertising on the channel has picked up as well. So my question is, how much YouTube revenue sharing do you see from your slot channel subscribers? and Do you think some people are increasing the number
    of videos (again non signifigant wins) to just increase viewership / revenue generation.

    If you think about it, it is kinda a cool way to supplement your gaming budget.

    I've often wondered that about SDGuy..it seems like he puts a LOT of time in, just taping slot play...so SOMEONE must be paying for it (Because I have a friend who is a HUGE slot player; but he doesn't tape it)
    So, if someone is paying for people to play slots and tape it..let me know where to sign up, LOL.

    Yeah, this probably isn't the thread for this topic. But I know the Shamus has been around a long time, and posted allot of other people's hits. Hey if someone puts in the time and casino security risk of getting caught taping,
    more power to them. I just think alot of the "Big Wins" are bullshit, and I have been de-subscribing a bunch of people. There's like this whole little incestuous group doing videos now, so I suspect there must be some
    money from ad revenue in it.
