    Is anyone else playing this contest?

    A version of Ultimate X. Some pretty good prizes (first place includes airfare to Reno). If you don't hit it 'big', there are random, daily winners too. Since we're stopping in Reno to and from SoCal this spring, it would be nice to get some free rooms.

    Unfortunately, although I scored about 40k points in one round, it was far short of what was needed to be a 'daily winner'. As well, I didn't win a random winner ... );

    Oh well ....

    I loved Atlantis when we lived in the Bay Area. We'd go there in winter. I'd gamble all day while Dan would catch the shuttle up to the mountains for skiing.

    I play sometimes, but never made the leader boards. I should try to check out this one.

    Yes, Sonya - we keep hoping for a random, daily winner but no luck. Haven't been to Reno in about 20 years (but for one night, two years ago). Hopefully, will have some gambling luck.

    According to the above post, it's been almost a year since we talked about an "Atlantis Reno Online Contest". There's one on now and, since we will probably stop in Reno at the end of Feb en route to Palm Springs, I thought I'd give it another go.

    You get 40 spins at 300/spin (max bet). I usually end up with less than 10K (how do they get several hundred thousand?) ... but, this morning, I managed 139k! I'm the leader so far for the day, and 11th overall, so - fingers crossed - it will hold through tonight.

    Daily winners get two nights at the hotel, which would be perfect for our Feb trip. Wish me luck!

    Good luck! They've had a few contests. Every other month or so. I was playing the slot one in Sept to try to win a couple nights for my road trip home from Vegas. I didn't win. :(

    Well, as luck would have it somebody just scored 188K+. Leaves me currently in 12th place overall. They reward 20 with 2 nights, so I have five days to avoid being dropped that far. Oh well ....

    Another one of these contests started today. Jan 8-17, Haywire Video Poker Contest.

    I played one round this morning and got a whopping 8000 points. I'm sure I'll be sitting at the bottom of the leaderboard, AGAIN! I never do well in these, but I just keep on playing, hoping for some free rooms. ;)

    Played two rounds. Got four 2s plus kicker on a 4x on TDB. Unfortunately, the other 99 spins were shyte.

    I am going to Reno in June, hoping for some free nights as well.

    I hope you win them!

    I was wondering what's the best game to play for that situation. I finally broke 15,000 by playing the Deuces Wild Bonus, but top score was 166k already and I gave up. ;)

    I'll have to have a look. On the previous one, I was about 19th overall, but didn't win anything. We've booked Harrah's Reno at the end of Feb en route to Vegas (and then Palm Springs). Quite cheap at Harrah's, but a free night at Atlantis would even be better ....

    The scores aren't cumulative. It's whatever score you end up with at the end of 100 hands. I expect they are getting good hands with high multipliers to score that high.

    I'm not. ;)

    The multiplier is going to be a crazy part of this. plus 10 handed. A dealt quad or royal with a multiplier is almost a must to get a win.

    Yeah, I managed a Royal, but with no multiplier. Basically, you need a premium hand with a 12x multiplier.
