    Today I visited my local and sat down at a machine. The moment I sat down this lady came rushing over to me cussing me out for playing on "her machine". I told her that she cannot claim a machine and started playing. She stood behind me stewing for 20 minutes and would not leave. To piss her off I hit the service light and asked the slot attendant to cap the machine while I go grab brunch. The lady started cussing up some more and I walked away. I came back an hour later and she was still there waiting. I started playing again and won a little money. The funny part was that the same machine was next to the one I was playing.

    What have you done to annoy people that are bothering you?

    At our local there was a lady that was really impatient to wait for me to finish on the twenty-five cent Haywire slot I was playing. She would walk around a bit then she'd come back and stand right next to me. I was putting in only $5 at a time and she would let out a huge dramatic sigh each time I would reach into my pocket. Then she'd wander off only to return a few minutes later.

    I was staying pretty even on the machine. I was having fun just sitting there and staying afloat.

    Finally she put her face close to mine and said, "Honey, if you ain't off this machine :nono: in five minutes, I'm going to sit on your lap and take over!"

    I scooted the chair back and tapped my lap. I never said a word to her, and never saw her again.

    I wasn't trying to annoy her. I was just trying to play some slots! :D

    Years ago I walked into Gold Spike, and sat at a machine that I always played. There was a watered down drink, so I just moved it over and started playing. After about 5 minutes, a lady comes over and started screaming at me. "You bitch, get off my machine. I've been playing all morning, and left my drink here" She was really mad.Security escorted her out. The funny thing was, her t-shirt said-Don't mess with this grandma.

    What is the logic of someone insisting on playing "that machine". When my wife and I go to Vegas with her sister and her (sigh) husband, he'll latch on to a particular machine and won't let go.

    On this trip there was a particular machine that he would not let anyone play. He would ask to have it locked down and the casino attendants tried their best to accommodate him. It came to a point where they explained that they could no longer hold it for him for the period of time he requested. They claimed March Madness and that the casino was busy and the amount he played on the machine vs. how long he wanted it locked down does not justify it.

    I always tell him, once you put your money into the machine and play, that money is no longer yours.

    He doesn't understand. He thinks that it is his money in there and he wants it back. Amazing thinking on his part as he's due to turn 60 years old this year. You'd think by the way he's acting he was 10.

    My sister will light up a cigarette if someone is hovering around her.

    In 2015 I was wanting to play the older Ghostbuster slots at MGM Grand but there was a couple playing both of them. Back to back with those slots was the newer Ghostbuster slots, so as soon as one opened up I sat down and put in $20 and decided to wait until that couple was gone by playing the newer game instead of hovering. I played for nearly 2 hours, I wasn't doing great and probably put in $200. I'm not a big gambler, so this was yuuuugge for me. Finally I lost it all so I gave up and started to walk away, and there was that couple, also walking away, and the gal says "Oh, sure, NOW he's leaving!". I didn't say nothing. I just shook my head and laughed on the inside as I walked back to my hotel.

    ... the next night I got to play on the older Ghostbuster slots and I cashed out about $180 so in the end I recovered a bit of my losses from the night before.

    A long time ago, while playing video poker, I ordered a merlot, (back when they had coin hoppers.) While grabbing my drink, I sneezed, and the entire glass and wine went into the coin hopper. Well the VP machine started acting weird and I got nervous. But the slot attendant came by and was really nice. I moved to the machine on the left while I watched the maintenance guy clean all the broken glass and red wine out of the hopper.
    Can't remember if I won or not that night, but I guess I did since I didn't have to pay for repairs:)

    Great idea! Must have been real steam coming out of her ears!

    Years ago, at the Tropicana, there were a couple of good machines spread out in a few rows, and there was a cane hanging from one of the good machines, a flat top where no one was seated. There was only one other person around, 5 seats down, a woman in her mid 80's. I asked her if the cane was hers, and she snapped back with her jack-o-lantern teeth "I'm playing that one!". So of course I said, "well pick which one of these you are playing, and I will play the other one". She was mumbling and cursing, but stayed seated at the other machine. I moved the cane to the next machine and sat down and played. Wish I would have hit a jackpot and have her hit me with her cane, but I wasn't that lucky!

    I like the idea of having cigarettes to blow smoke in their face (even if you don't smoke) but usually these old ladies are the ones with yellow skin, the deep scratchy voice and the tube out of their throat and will probably enjoy it.

    People are weird. When I was in Vegas last year, was playing Fu Du Le at the Venetian - this lady insisted that the machine was hers after i just sat down... I rolled my eyes and let her have the machine. I moved to the machine 2 seats over and then Bam! Babies come and I get the bonus and woohoo $800ish bucks! The lady just starred at me so I said to her, "Oh is this your machine too???" lol

    I don't understand some peoples claim to their game. I know that we all have our "favorite" or even self-proclaimed "lucky" machines, but goddamn!

    There's been numerous times at our local casinos (Barona, Rincon, Valley View) where people will straight up hog a machine (old ladies sitting staring at the screen with "0 credits" and not making a move to insert more money or move on), or bombard someone after a guest sits on an open slot claiming it as theres.

    Sex & The City, now a stand-alone slot at my local, used to be a bank of 2 side-by-side and is pretty popular. The bank has a reflective/mirror surface that the user can use to see if anyone is behind them. If I see someone staking it out, I will tell them that I'm still playing (if I cashed out from a decent bonus or whatever), but sometimes people will linger. As a deterrent, I hit the "service" light, cash out my big ticket, and insert more money to continue playing.

    Sort of off-topic but irksome nonetheless....guests who pound and punch the machine screens thinking it will "help" them win. The slots are nothing but giant computers, if you break it, you're liable for the damages. The idiocy of some just astounds me.

    My Machine - even if I am not playing.

    I will sit and play to make a point. If you play, it is your machine. No play - get the f... out of here.

    A few years ago, I hit a hand pay at one of local riverboats. I was sitting at the machine waiting for the attendant to arrive. A woman came up to me and told me to leave so she could play it. I just pointed at the "CALL ATTENDANT" message on the screen an said I was waiting for my money. She looked a bit miffed and walked off. I guess she assumed I was one of those "this is my machine" types.
