    That a 5 nickel game or ten? Paytable? Most of those games in my experience are rough. 7/5 DDB with a $410 ten nickel royal, crap like that.

    Single line, not sure of the paytable. RF's start at $400. For a nickel, it is just fun and cheap to play. But when it got up to $700 and $800, it got real serious. not an empty seat and it is a bank of at least 10 machines.

    @bluesdude When we stopped gambling on Monday night it was at $480. I pay attention to it first, because we have to use the escalator to get back to Cal, but second, when my brother was still alive he watched that bank like a hawk and pounced on it when it got up there. I know at $800, he would have been on it until it hit.

    I'm not a slot player, so it was a machine that faced BHB and right on the end of the aisle. One pull for $5. If I looked around the slot, I could see the bar and my wife on #2. Sorry, crappy location description I know. It's not really my thing.

    @Crambone and I did get the chance to say hello to you on Sunday night, Joe. We stopped by Boar's Head to watch the second half of the NFL game and we all chatted briefly. It was nice to meet you.

    $480 is pretty good. Our trip in June my wife hit that jackpot twice. Once for $460 first thing in the morning and then later that night on the same machine for $431!
    I am not a slot player either but if I do play, it would be the Buffalo machines, Grand, Stampede or Gold. Those are the only ones I really know. So sorry about your brother. I know that you wrote about him extensively here.

    Thanks for the assistance! Too bad it didn't add a handpay to go with your royals. Congrats on the big wins and on maintaining your Emerald status!
