    Progressive resets to $1,250 and moves fast. Always a good play.

    There's always a group of 5-10 locals hanging around hammering away on Boner Deluxe. They have drawings three days a week (Sun, Mon, Thursday - I believe) and you get tickets with every $100 win - which is every 4OAK on Boner Deluxe. So reasonably lucrative as long as you have the bankroll to handle the variance. One of the guys mentioned he was down $2,000 for the day on his way out the door last week - that's a bit too much on quarters for me.

    Jokers Wild. Played the oldest VP machine I’ve ever seen. Then lost $65 playing $5 blackjack. Big sign outside advertising $2.79 double cheeseburger and fries. Going to have to come back to try that.

    Playing off left behind multipliers on an Ultimate X machine by betting 5 instead of 10 a line.

    Plus got $20 cash back. Ended up leaving ~$30 down.

    Skyline treated me well. Finished up $100. Royal still going, but it’s a work night, so I must to bed. Knocked off one more space on my bingo card - five to go.

    OMG, I didn't realize the SF drop to 40 (200 for 5 coins) affected the paytable that much...need to pay attention to that a bit more. that is what we are talking about here, right?

    I kept seeing the 10/6 thinking, damn that's great for nickels. Didn't notice the 40 for the sf. Yikes!

    Edited : OK I see now, she lost 10%. It's actually about a 99% payback?
