    My Trip Report

    I was down about 1300 when I woke up this morning, after day one of New Years 4 day trip. I decided to play 3-play $1 bonus poker deluxe. 100 in and not long hit my first quad. (No pictures of any quads. Sorry. Playing too fast ). Then 2nd quad not many hands later, so bumped to basically $2 level. $30 a deal.

    Got back down to about 300 and hit another quad. I started bouncing around 1600 to 900 and then things got interesting.

    I would hit a quad. Next hand another quad.

    I got over 3k and was wondering at what limit it would start spitting out tickets. Normally it happens around 3 or 4K for all machines I have played before.

    Passed 4K. No tickets yet.

    Passed 5k. No tickets.

    Still none passed the 6k mark.

    I got it passed 7k. And still no tickets.

    I kept playing. About 8500 was my high water mark.

    I cashed out for $8015. I have never had a machine let me get that high before. No w2g, as all hits were 800, beside las the first two at 400. I earned about 4100 cet tier points. That was all on a 100 buy in. Crazy. Even the cashiers seemed confused, when I cashed out the ticket.

    Nice run!

    And I'm guessing it would have never spit out a ticket if you kept running it up. It never has to legally; they are just machine settings at some casinos. But that probably is one of the biggest cash out tickets they have seen. Hard to run up that much without handpays.

    Hopefully you can keep on doing it this trip!

    Nice. Had myself a nice run at video poker myself over at Sams Town across the river just the other day. But what a pit sams town is. Horseshoe never sends me free play but sams, el dorado mad margaritaville hook me up. Wish me luck at L'auberge this weekend.

    Well I did get 2 hand pays today on the machine next to the one that paid well. I got them about 3 hands a part. I was only playing triple play dollars at the time. I hadn't bumped up to the $2 level.

    Unfortunately I dumped some of that back in the machine at the $2 level.

    Still up pretty good though.

    Congratulations!! That is so nice!

    I bet the cashiers were confused with a TITO that high!

    BTW - we are going over there this weekend for the FEAR NO ICE show. Where is that machine that you cashed out the ticket?

    That machine was first floor in the back middle vp area. 2nd over from the back wall in the row. I think it faces north.

    Although, it also eats money. I did not get to keep all of that money from this weekend, and that machine was not always hot.

    Holy Crap! That is an awesome story and even better win! 8K and no W2G! I always hate playing higher stakes VP, just because those 1200.00 handpays.
    Incredible run of luck for you! What was the final Quad count?

    My guess for that run on that machine was 16 quads. 2 at 400 and 14 at 800 with some losses mixed in to keep me under the 8500 mark.

    Then the day with my dealt guads 3 times, I could hardly hit any single quads. So, that got me 3 w2g and Louisiana taxes removed.

    oo

    Nice run HOUtoLAS
    That's how u play Slots in HL room, they give a Tito, for what your requested amount it. (example $3000)
    As long as no single Quad/jackpot, exceeds $1199 your gold!
    If you wanted you could have Tito after each hit, & popped in a Fresh Hundie,
    but that would have affected your timing & as shown, .25 sec slower of faster would have missed out.

    You were Nailing it w/the RNG! :nworthy:

    Grts on the Quad run!

    Ok this weekend I tried a different machine still bonus deluxe. I got it up over 10,000, so it was never going to spit out a ticket. I cashed out under 10,000 at 9,975. I needed that run after 4K down the first night.

    [​IMG]
    9,900 in hundreds.

    Again only cash out amount. No quad pics.

    I started at 15 a deal for 400 quads. After 2 of the 400 quads, I bumped to 30 a deal. Then after a few quads at the 3000 mark, I went to 39 a deal for 1040 quads.

    I love those runs. No w2g

    I love your efforts on it spitting out a ticket. Like I guessed, it probably will never happen. Get a 5 digit ticket to take home next time! Also seeing you win 13 credits is amusing.

    Nice run!

    The 13 credit is so I don't get dealt trips and hit quads for a w2g. That happened the first time I played this. My plan was to avoid the 15 level with a 1200 quad and w2g. So. At 14 level 1120 is under unless you add the 84 for the other two lines when dealt trips. 1204 and w2g. I did hit for a 11,200 Royal at 14 that time.

    I was going to avoid +10k ticket. It baffles the cage critters just under right now.

    We are going over there tomorrow - Sun for the Slot Tournament and Franki Valli concert on Friday night. I am trying to talk DH into playing the VP machines like you do. He normally plays quarters.

    You can drop money quickly playing that $1 multiplay like that. In no time on Friday and Sunday I was out 2k and 1100. And I was just waiting for it to hit, but it didn't. I am just glad Saturday happened, so I could leave up.
