    ... You aren't even at the casino and can hear the hand pay music from a specific machine playing in your head.

    ... You walk by a bank of Buffalo machines and say, "Buffalooooooo!!!" out loud. - I always thought it was odd that every other animal symbol on the machine makes a corresponding sound, but when you hit a buffalo, the machine goes, "Buffalo!!!"

    I was telling sindustry that I feel like I'm being incepted.

    If you are outside walking and hear a raptors screech and automatically start thinking:" times 4, times 4!" then you have issues.

    Wheel of Fortune shout out literally..Buddy of mine dealt tables in Tunica and had to hear that annoying thing every shift.
    I can't stand it myself over the course of once is enough as a player nearby,but as an employee must be tough.
    Sorry missed the "hand pay"..Seems that WOF goes off all the time as soon as some one puts a dollar in it.

    What sound does a buffalo make though?

    And definitely guilty of saying "Buffalooooooooooooo!"

    Yeah, I bet dealers at Tunica Roadhouse hear it a lot. They're less than 20 feet from the pit, iirc, and when it's quiet their noise travels far.

    If there are raptors screeching around you, then you have different issues. :)
    I'm still new to the Buffalo game, but is the 4x the biggest or is there a 5x?

    I think it's either 2x, 3x, or 4x for the wilds (reels 2, 3,4) on the bonus spins, I've never seen a 4x4x4x for a x64 but I'm sure it must happen. Last trip I played one of the 4 play machines and hit a bunch of buffalo on a bonus for handpay at MSS so now I'm kinda hooked on them.

    You know you play to many slots when....

    You hear people you don't recall seeing before before saying...she always wins on that machine...but she plays a lot.
    You not only know the slot attendants....you know the security and the slot maintenance guys.

    For us, we know we play too many slots when:

    Playing any of 100 or so mega line games, Cleo, Hangover, Buffalo, Unicorn, Spiderman, Goldfish etc. and within a second of any "hit" we can scream out the exact credit to be paid without even looking at the total at the bottom.

    There isn't a machine that I haven't played that I can't recognize by sound alone. Taking it a step further, I love when I walk by someone or somewhere and smell a casino. The distinct smell of Aria and it's shops, or of the Venetian.

    Thought I was the only one!

    You know you play too many slots when:

    The slot manager and attendants call you by name.
    The drink server brings a bottle of water and ginger ale when you didn't order one (the only thing I drink)
    You know which slot machines payout at a specific time - oops that's just a fantasy stuck in my head!

    Or you listen to the radio and a song comes on that reminds you of the music that plays during the bonus round music to a slot machine?

    I can't hear "Play that funky music" by Wild Cherry without thinking of the slot that would play that during the bonus round on the old video version of the wild cherry slot!

    When that little voice in the back of your head says; "Dude those things screwed you so bad last time, dont do it!" Although I do find that noise intoxicating.

    ...... when you go to one of those super arcades (like main event ) and while the kids are playing video games you are trying to find the best payout for game tickets ....

    ....and you know when you spend too much time on this site when you almost took a picture of that big ticket win ....
