So I was reading thebigpaybak's blog and decided to watch some of his YouTube videos. Highly entertaining in my opinion. Anyway I like hearing or seeing those wins and stories. So let's hear everyone's best slot win story

My personal high slot win was $10,000. I was 18 years old and stopped into an Indian Casino with my buddy after work. This is in 2002. He had hit for $300, which we thought was a huge win. I found a $1 Tobasco reel slot machine and hit the jackpot after about 15 spins. I gave my parents $2k, paid for a limo at prom, & paid for my a group dinner with friends. I'm sure I also lost quite a bit of it back as well

Many moons ago at an Indian casino I saw three $1 credits on a machine. I pulled the lever and won $2700.

$4000.

My sister and brother in law were visiting, and I wasn't well, I was laying in bed. They called from their hotel and wanted us to join the at Mohegan, so I got dressed and we met them around 7PM. I figured to run $100 through a slot then watch for a while and go home.

I picked a $1 Wheel of Fortune, threaded the Franklin into it, and started pressing buttons, and it went on a death march. Nothing, not even a cherry. Then, with 13 credits left, I hit the button and the reels came up... 5X-5X-5X!

I have a photo somewhere, I'll be damned if I can find it now though.

I've had dozens of hits between $1000 and $2000, including several $1199s on the $5 WoF at Borgata.

My personal best slot win was 3300+ on an island bank of 12 WMS machines (all different 5 reel video slots; mine was called Jungle Wild) that had a common progressive Jackpot Party bonus add-on (the base games had their own bonuses as well) that showed randomly on reel 5. It was Grand Biloxi (Now Harrah's Gulf Coast) in about May 2005 - I was hosting my Mom on our annual "Thanks for doing my taxes" trip. I was just playing 40 cent spins (2x 20 lines) for less than 5 minutes and got the jackpot screen. You had to find the star in one present (about 60 presents per screen) on 4 consecutive screens before you got a Party Pooper (more of them on each screen; the remainder of the presents were dollar amounts, that were proportional to your bet). Finding the star advanced you to the next screen.

I'd never played machines with multiple progressive bonus before, and everyone around me was playing like they were in a tournament, smacking the buttons as fast as they could. I didn't know what was going on, and didn't know the significance of the stars when I entered the bonus round; I just kept finding them after 1 or 2 presents. I found what turned out to be the last star, my machine stopped working, and I thought it was broken. There was no indication on the screen of what I'd won, or even that I had; I was looking at all points of my display trying to find a dollar amount or some indication of why the machine locked up. Everybody around me swore, banged their machine, or stood up. A bunch of people who were standing nearby watching cheered or made disgusted noises.

A woman sitting behind me on a different bank slapped me on the shoulder and said, "NICE!" I said, "what"? She said, "You won!" I said, "I won what? My machine locked up." She said, "Look up, you idiot!" So, way above our heads, there was this giant display with screens and music coming out of it, showing that the Major (of 4) Jackpots had gone off. (Busy and noisy casino, I had tuned out the sounds that weren't coming out of my machine.) My machine itself still didn't indicate anything, but there was something on the big screen pointing down at my position (can't remember what the graphic looked like). I really didn't understand until then; I think they ganged regular machines in a bank and put the big bonus display on the top, and just did a simple code re-write to include the random 5th reel symbol to an add-on bonus, so the machine itself didn't have all the jackpot info programmed in; it was all on the top-level add-on.

Way too many people (like about 30) hung around waiting to see me paid, so I asked for a security escort from the slot pay folks and took the money up to the room and locked it up. Partly because I'd had a crazy good day at PGP for 4 hours just before that, with several SF's and several 4OAK, so I had about 9K on me at that point (more than I've ever walked around with; I realize that's chump change to some of you). The nice part was that I'd lost about 2K in the prior days, and we were leaving that afternoon, so I banked a nice amount when I got home.

I used to play a lot of video poker on a $10 game that paid 1000-1 for the royal. I hit that a few times.

Amateur ;)

I am an expert slot player with a return of over 500%. My system has worked every single time I've played it. No joke, and y'all know I wouldn't lie here at WoV.

I won't go into all my secrets, but basically I was leaving Vegas with only enough money for lunch and a cab. But hey, who needs to eat, right? So I tossed $17 into a Quick Hits machine and slow played that sucker for 60-75 minutes. Got a bangin' bonus round, x5's all over. By the time the reels stopped spinning, I had like $96.50.

Cashed out. Never played slots before, ain't played them since, and likely never will again.

And I know y'all are waiting with bated breath to know what I could have done with such a windfall. Well, I'll tell ya. I went to Red Lobster and bought a new fishing rod. Paid for my girl's meal and everything. Eat your heart out =)

My biggest slot win was for $2925 but it was only for 14.625 times my bet. I was playing $200 per spin on wolf run during rivieras $1000 slot loss rebate promotion. I hit nothing on my first 4 spins then hit a bonus round on my last spin. It was a little dissapointing it wasn't more than that. I thought the bonus round would be worth more.

$1400 or so on a penny game ($2 a pull). While I don't mind a taxable I was 100% I wouldn't get one and bam out of nowhere 30 free spins with 8x multiplier.

$1600, twice. Both times on July 19th. Why do I remember the date? Because it is my birthday. I wont go long winded, but in 2009 got to Vegas, walked into the LV Hilton high limit room, $5 slot and hit for $1600 on my 2nd spin. Fast forward to 2013, I told my wife at dinner I needed to got to the high limit room, walked around Ballys high limit room and found a machine that was talking to me, and sat down. A few spins later, I hit for $1600 the same amount on the same day, spirit was good.

One coin only in a $25 two coin machine at Caesars Palace. Long enough ago they still were coin droppers. Hit the 3 red 7's for $12,500 would have been $25K with 2 coins in. I wasn't that disappointed though :-) As a Canadian before they put the tax treaty back in place lost 30% off of the top though, with no chance of getting any of it back.

Per my channel, $33175 has been my top with $7425(also on the channel) a distant second, although still a great win. Both on Zeus. Other than that, the Blackjack Tournament win last year was $30000 and a few years ago had a Pai Gow Progressive win for about $16000 with 5 Aces.
Lack of prior planning on your part doesn't constitute an emergency on my part.

Video poker: $5 progressive for $36,000+.

But I think of my biggest win as being a 50-play video poker machine for 5-cents ($12.50 per play). Got a dealt royal for $10,000. At Mandalay Bay.

It cost me about $15,000 to hit the $36,000 royal. I was dealt the royal on the 50 play nickel machine with less than $200 played.

That's your choice however, If you're interested and willing to make a sizable side wager, we can have a side bet and Ill get you the information/details W2G's, Witnesses etc. Remember I have been playing since the early 90's.

I could've put up more information/details and circumstance, however I really hesitated posting this in the first place, I don't think it's smart posting pictures and details of former or current plays publicly. That would make it easy to associate some memorable JPs to me. I also have to consider some of my partners who are very very private.

I would tend to believe him. Remember, he has played professionally for the last 20 years. I would guess that he has some action six days a week. With that assumption he has gambled professionally 6240 days.

I want to say $4182, it was definitely over 4k. It was back in 2012, so I'm not 100% on the exact dollar amount.

That I can compete better with. 1112 for 1 playing a Class II "Texas Tea" game for $0.18/spin in an Alabama racino. Whatever difficult bingo combination I hit displayed 5 Texas Teas on line 1. That is actually my biggest slot win, my $400+ hits are both VP.

For me on the Arctic Avalanche slot game for .50 cents I won $1,264.40 on the bonus. I got the sticky wild and collect wild, so on the last bonus spin all the spaces were filled with wilds.

In August, 2007, I had gotten back into Wendover to find a drawing promotion going on at the Wendover Nugget. But I was late to the party. The drawing tickets were based on action and I only had a 20 hour window to run the action. But I figured I could still get a good piece of the drum by playing $5 NSUD, which was their best $5 game. I was also getting .5% comp. I hit two $20,000 royals just a couple of hours apart. Both were in diamonds and both were three-card catches. The first one I held the Queen-Ten and caught the other three. The second one I held the Jack-Ten and caught the other three. With my drawing wins I made $38,000 within a 24 hour period. That's the best I've ever done.

That's the best I've ever done.



There is a funny side story to this. When I hit the first royal I got surrounded by suits. Its not everday that someone hits a jackpot that big at the Wendover Nugget. For cover I hammed it up like a sucker gambler. Yippee!I won! And all that stupid stuff that ploppies do when they get lucky. They asked me if I wanted my picture taken. Oh, hell yes. Gotta show it to the family. They snapped my picture and paid me off. The second royal came and I did the same thing letting them take my picture and all. On my way to my room that night I dropped the pictures in the first garbage can I passed.

A couple of days later I walked into the Rainbow piker room. But there was no way in hell Iwas going to tell my friends there of my good fortune. You know the old saying "a friend in need is a friend indeed." Start bragging about a jackpot and you will find that you have more friends than you had before you hit the jackpot. And your old friends suddenly become closer to you. All of a sudden they are destitute and in bad need of a loan. I always like the ones who have a good get rich quick scheme if only they had the venture capital. And they are willing to give me a big cut of the action if I wil invest. So I have no intention of telling them anything.

I buy in for a couple hundred andgrab a seat I notice that I'm getting strange looks. When it was my turn to act the dealer looked at me and said:

"What are you going to do Mr. $40,000."
"What? What are you talking about?"
"You hit the Nugget for $40,000"
"No, I didn't." I looked around. Everyone was staring at me.
"Yes, you did! They put your fricking picture on the marquee, outside, asshole!"

"What? What are you talking about?"
"You hit the Nugget for $40,000"
"No, I didn't." I looked around. Everyone was staring at me.
"Yes, you did! They put your fricking picture on the marquee, outside, asshole!"



Hah.

Have you ever found any ap plays on the lower end of mega jackpot machines? Where you could actually play for a lower bonus while simultaneously qualifying for a very high though obviously unlikely payoff?
There's no secret. Just know what you're talking about before you open your mouth.

There is a funny side story to this. When I hit the first royal I got surrounded by suits. Its not everday that someone hits a jackpot that big at the Wendover Nugget. For cover I hammed it up like a sucker gambler. Yippee!I won! And all that stupid stuff that ploppies do when they get lucky. They asked me if I wanted my picture taken. Oh, hell yes. Gotta show it to the family. They snapped my picture and paid me off. The second royal came and I did the same thing letting them take my picture and all. On my way to my room that night I dropped the pictures in the first garbage can I passed.

A couple of days later I walked into the Rainbow piker room. But there was no way in hell Iwas going to tell my friends there of my good fortune. You know the old saying "a friend in need is a friend indeed." Start bragging about a jackpot and you will find that you have more friends than you had before you hit the jackpot. And your old friends suddenly become closer to you. All of a sudden they are destitute and in bad need of a loan. I always like the ones who have a good get rich quick scheme if only they had the venture capital. And they are willing to give me a big cut of the action if I wil invest. So I have no intention of telling them anything.

I buy in for a couple hundred andgrab a seat I notice that I'm getting strange looks. When it was my turn to act the dealer looked at me and said:

"What are you going to do Mr. $40,000."
"What? What are you talking about?"
"You hit the Nugget for $40,000"
"No, I didn't." I looked around. Everyone was staring at me.
"Yes, you did! They put your fricking picture on the marquee, outside, asshole!"



That was a good cue to get out of town.

That was August, 2007. I had just gotten back to Wendover from spending a couple of months in Montana. And you are right, that was my cue to get out of Wendover. I went back down to Las Vegas. I needed to get my laptop out of storage and do some work on some games I seen in Montana. After some analyzing I figured I could make a little money here. I came back here in November, 2007, intending to stay only a month or two. That was over seven years ago.

Whatid like to knowmoew is who had the highest non progressive win ratio relative to bet. Winning $2000 is sweeter at $1 a pull than $100 a pull.




my best X amount was $725 on 1 quater after about $4-$5 put in 1 quater at a time. I have no idea what machine it was or anything. I wasn't into slots then. It was at isle of capri in 2003. I saw someone at eldorado hit the biggest one 4000 coins with 3 quaters but that is only $1000 and less X then what I hit. It was the top hit on that machine though.
