    My slot kryptonites are chasing the "full" bowl on 88 Fortunes. On another Gambling Message Forum, I read the advice to "Play only full bowls in 88 Fortunes, as they are usually due to close any second. I'm not saying they will automatically close, but a full bowl is usually ready to pay a Progressive." I took the advice and chased a full bowl and it never closed. I put in like $200 and the damn bowl never closed. When I got to my last $20, I was tempted to play it for the bowl to finally close, but my logical conscience screamed at me to cut my losses and go home with that last $20. I listened to my conscience and left.

    I also chased Progressives on Electric Boogaloo and Golden Peach slots. My local used to give Minor Progressive on just one line at a penny, and they paid out roughly $40. I haven't gotten roughly $40 on just one line in about 7 months. I got the roughly $40 playing 5 lines about a month ago however.

    For me I'd say timberwolf. I've won a ton and lost a ton. The potential for big pay outs keeps me playing it.

    Mustang money. I love playing it, but it's so hard to get a good hit with multipliers that are more than 1x,

    I was guilty of chasing full bowls last year, it cost me $450!! I've since seen the bowl close when almost empty....

    Yeah, I was pleasantly shocked to get a Progressive round on Da Ji Da La when tge "firecracker" stick had only one or two "firecrackers lit up. I thought, "No way is the Progressive Round going to show up when only one or two of them are lit up." Lo and behold, the Progressive Round popped up!:D I got the Mini however, boo. :(

    Top dollar is my bane, a close second is wheel of fortune. That cursed bonus round has made me a fortune as well as draining half a days bankroll in no time.

    Top Dollar - hubby won the 100 credit bonus on a $5 machine at Caesars in Feb, $5k, then less than an hour later he won $1700 on a $1 machine at Bellagio. The next day I won $3600 on a $5 machine at PHo. Our first trip of 2016 was profitable!
    My other fave is 4x cherry or triple double wild cherry.

    Any of the QuickHits games or those damn Buffalo machines. When I'm heavily intoxicated the music that plays when you get a lot of buffaloes is so much fun! Apparently I also wander into the HL slot area when I drink. . . which I need to make sure I DO NOT do in the future haha

    Kitty fuckin' Glitter.

    I've got a lucky bank at my local; try to take that luck to Vegas (and I just love cats. I even named 'em all!).

    - and anything Sex & The City.

    I find myself chasing the Wheel of Fortune and Sex and the City bonuses. My only true kryptonite is Jackpot Party, though. I have never won a dime on that one!

    Quick Hits ($1.50 Max) and WOF (2-coin $ version) are the two I always have to try!

    Glad to know I'm not the only one who's named the cats in Kitty Glitter!

    The state of the bowl in NO WAY reflects the chance of the bonus hitting.

    I've hit the bonus when the bowl was barely full, three spins after the previous bonus, and have also gone a couple of hundred with mo hit.
