A casino should welcome a slot player using a pencil and paper with the same open arms that they do a baccarat player. The ones who "have a system" are definitely the best customers.

They are not huge fans of the ones stealing proprietary information, though...they were just fine with me, "Thinking I had a system."

It's a bit of a stretch to say you were stealing proprietary info, you still have to deconstruct the slot machine correctly and correctly do the payout math. Easier said than done.

I should have put that in quotation marks, you're correct, those were very similar to the words used by Staff to describe what I was doing.

LOL

I didn't even know that! I can't believe they quoted me.

See, I sent them an E-Mail, but I never actually got a response to the E-Mail, so I just figured that nobody really cared about the rumor anymore.

Thanks, BigFoot66!

They used my first name and last initial towards the bottom of the article. BigFoot66 has spoken to me via PM before, which is why he knew what my first name and last initial are, as I sign almost all PM's with same.

ahhh...

also, the article says the machine has NEVER been hit since installed in the 1990s.
if the jackpot started at $1M and is now at $2.3M, then that's one SLOW progressive!

Has it been relegated to just hand pays since they converted to TITO? This also would cause people to lose interest in playing it. It might be slow, but there were originally only 4 units, and now there is only 1. Is there any non-network slot jackpot that is over $1M anywhere else in the world?
