    I'm sorry that I abandoned this thread. The day after my last post, I had some serious issues come up at work. Major fires had to be put out and it kind of started me on a downward spiral for the rest of my vacation. While I had some decent wins, I still ended up going over budget by about 50%.

    After tier bonuses with CET, I ended the trip with just over 15k TC so I'm already at diamond "light" which is a nice way to start the year. At Cosmo, I'm about 2k points to gold. I feel like I can hit that pretty easily on my next trip.

    Speaking of Cosmo...Right before my hand pay, I lost my phone! When the slot attendant came to verify the win, I asked her if anyone had found a phone. She instructed me to go to security, but unfortunately, no one had turned anything in. I wasn't too terribly worried as I have 2 phones, one for work and one for personal so I would still be able to survive. Luckily, when I came back to receive my hand pay, the slot attendant had found it! I was grateful and tipped her a few extra bucks on top of what I would normally tip on a hand pay. I'll do a quick photo dump shortly.

    Do you remember where you played the Monty Python slot?

    Glad you found your phone!

    I saw your hand pay. Congratulations. I'll try not to sound personally stupid nor condensending...but, I don't understand on this pic what you hit that constitutes a hand pay. The screen pics look the same to me as any other spin that would have produced a big '0'. On video poker, table games, etc, I know exactly what I'm looking for and what I'll win if I get it but on slots, especially video penny slots, the winning hands look the same to me as the losers. What am I missing?

    Lol, no worries! On that game I was playing multiple games on one spin. The bottom right game triggered a free spin set. I think it is 5 or more "Heidi's" triggers a minimum of 5 free spins. The more Heidi's you get sequential, the more free spins you get. If you look closely, you'll see purple Heidi's. Those represent sticky wilds in the free spin set. The way those are positioned, every spin is pretty much a gauranteed win. I forgot what I got exactly, but the last couple of free spins were pretty substantial. I remember thinking to myself, "crap, this is going to be a hand pay" which means taxable.
