    My Trip Report

    Sorry about the delay, but I have been figuring how to write this. My friend and I stayed at the Palms from 3/28-3/31. The trip was up and down (up $600 then down $600). I mostly plan $.25 VP with some slot's mixed in. I will upload the pictures from that trip later. Ended up coming home $300 ahead! (Hey, that's a winner to me)

    For the past year, my husband keeps saying he has a feeling I'm going to hit something big. Since they made their paytable's so bad, I rarely go the casino's by me in Illinois anymore. A couple of weeks ago, I woke up with the urge to go. So I told my husband I was going just for a little while (brought $100 with me) before I went shopping. Well the stars were in my favor, I was able to get the machine I really like. This machine has been really good and really bad to me, but for some reason I like it. As soon as I sat down the 4 of a kinds started coming. Then it cooled off to where I was down $50. Then I hit A's with the kick and I was happy. I wasn't sure if I should go home $400 ahead or keep playing. Since I had $520 in the machine, I figured I would leave at $500. Now here is the good part. The progressive was up to around $1080 and I was dealt X (cannot remember this card), Kh, Qh, Jh, and 10h. So of course without thinking I went for the royal. When the Ah popped up I was thinking ok, I'm going home $1500 ahead. Then my machine locked up and asked for the attendant. I told my friend I hit the royal but was confused, it shouldn't of locked up. Then I looked up and realized these machines were sequential machines! I almost fainted when I finally realized I won $12,500!! :)

    Massive hit! And you didn't realize that it was a sequential VP machine until after the fact? I wonder how often that happens...

    Congrats!
