I used to call these types "The Entourage" but now I sometimes call them Jabronis, even though they are probably not true jabronis in the traditional sense.
For those who give a rat, I found the original reference to "Tootie the Taxi Twerp" in the Usenet archives here:
"The AC - Degen" - this individual normally finds enough money to fly out of Philly to LV on a Spirit flight - normally with borrowed money. You can find this person at a $5 craps table, taking their low stakes craps WAYYYY too seriously and ruining the fun for everyone else.
Psychos - The ones that slap the slot button and then touches the screens all while mumbling some spell/prayers
Retards - The ones that pushes the cash out button after ever spin, just to re-insert the ticket again back in the machine
My wife does refer to me as ATM, but I think she means that in a loveable way......well, at least I hope she does.
???? That's an odd system -- do you have any idea what status is required for Trop?
I believe it’s Gold and above. I’m Green, but still get midweek room offers. Maybe I should be happy my $10 Bloody Mary and quick cashout didn’t turn into a $100 donation. The bar is also an odd design, in the shape of a “U” so the bartender has to constantly walk from corner to corner to see if patrons need a drink as his view is obstructed by a long wall.
hmmm interesting! Thanks for the info. . . I'll have to see how it goes.
By the way, there is a Tony Luke’s at the Tropicana, this place makes a great rendition of Philly classic: Roast Pork Italian, it’s better than a cheesesteak. Lean over and get plenty of napkins for the juice that runs down your arm. They also make a cheesesteak, so if you’re with someone, order one of each and compare/contrast.
Screeechers - those girls that all screech together when one of them wins $1.23 on a machine.
I generally call them "Stalkers".
However, there are different types of stalkers.
There are ones who stand, right behind you, almost in your personal space. Those are the "Too Close Stalkers". I turn around, give them the evil eye and keep staring til they leave me alone. I won't play again til they leave.
Then there are those that sit at machines near you, not right next to you, but aren't playing their machine, they are just watching you play. Those are "Looky loo Stalkers." I stop playing and stare at them...they usually get uncomfortable and get up and leave the area.
The worst kind of stalker is a high limit room stalker. These are the "Broke Ass Stalkers" who stalk the high limit rooms, watching people lose thousands of dollars. Some of them may want to hop onto a machine, but the vast majority are broke.
Being a high limit player, my approach with high limit stalkers is to ask if they have $ to be playing in the high limit room, and they usually respond by getting pissed, saying I can do whatever I want, then I call security and they are told to leave.
My sister and I were playing wof one night, a short, thick, stubby guy who's head sort of sit upon his shoulders, would move
machines next to us whenever we would move and give us a sly creepy smile.
We move, he'd move, it happened over and over.
Finally my sister and I left and as we were, she decided his name was NO NECK! To this day we laugh about STUBBY
stalking her. Stubby was my name for him.
Annoying Loud mouths - Those screaming and yelling over a $5 win
Bonus game stalker - You will find them around anyone with free games. (Where do they come from??)
Hack - Someone that comes in when you are on a good shoe and tries to jump in with no concerns. Will be betting small of course.
Credit troll - People that endlessly walk around looking for credit left in a machine.
back in the day when machines paid in coins, they were called silver miners
That was No Neck Nunzio!
"Button Slappers" as we call them are the absolute worst. Smacking the button as hard as you can isn't going to increase your odds of winning and it drives most people around you crazy. The ones who rub the screens also grind on my nerves. I hate it when I'm at a machine relaxing enjoying myself and someone doing the above mentioned sits next to me and starts up. Totally kills my vibe and I have to move. I once sat next to a lady who had a plush stuffed lobster, and every spin she took his little stuffed lobster claws and rubbed the screen with them. It was so odd.
I'm a female Red Forman
When i see people doing STOOPID things inside the casino .i.e slapping the machine screen as if that'll make it hit.....cursing at the machine as if it's going to acknowledge what they're screaming about or do what they want it to do....and those people who SCREAM and WOOOOHOOO as if they won a jackpot when they only won 5 bucks.
These type of people to me just screams DUMBASSNESS
I have encountered a special breed of the loudmouth type individuals that I call the "Attention Screamers". This person will be either alone or most often one half of a couple, and will scream/shout as loud as their body can go, before turning to everyone in the vicinity to catch their eye and ensure all eyes are on them, while repeating loud screaming. They will do this for every win no matter how small, until everyone has vacated that section due to deafness/ frustration. Bonus points if they are sober and its breakfast time, like the one I stumbled upon.
Oh and I call the people who hang about the slots while you play "slot hawks".
