Greetings!

Out of the goodness of my otherwise black heart, (j/k) I'd like to share an advantage slot play I just discovered today.

Manufacturer: Bally

Machines: Persian Nights & Money Vault (Possibly Others, Only Ones at WI, though)***

***Money Vault might not actually be called that, didn't have my pen on me...

How the Game Works:

1.) Non-Progressive
2.) Free Games, but I never hit any.
3.) Semi-Locking Wilds. Wilds come in groups of three, when you see Wilds, the next spin will see the Wilds drop one space on the reel.*

Remember, slots are free to watch, I'm always looking for something.

I was standing a few paces behind a lady playing one of these games when I noticed the way that the Wilds dropped. For some reason, she didn't get how that worked (apparently) and ticketed out leaving the machine. So, you might think I am suggesting just to look for the Wilds...

No. It gets better.

I noticed that she had only been betting $0.60/spin, so I switched that to a Max Bet of $3.00/spin, and the reel assignments changed completely! However, when I went back to $0.60/spin, the Wilds re-appeared where they were before I changed denominations!

After playing that $0.60 spin, I switched denominations on the machine looking for other Wilds left behind, I then repeated that process with the other two similar machines. Out of fifteen possible plays, seven of them saw some Wilds left behind on the appropriate denomination, and $20 turned into $50 in a real hurry!

Could you make a career out of it? No. Are you likely to get a huge hit? No. But, as a +ER play, this thing is rock solid.

TIPS:

1.) You can change denominations without paying for a spin, there will be a notice that the reel assignments are switching based on the credits bet. Therefore, anytime you see one of these machines, pop in a $20 and check all of the assignments for free. If there's nothing there, simply ticket your $20 back out.

2.) Remember that every Wild drops a level on the next play, so if you see a Wild only in the bottom position of the reel, that's no good, because it's going to disappear when you make the spin.

3.) If you see a Wild in the top position of a reel (which I did, twice) that is going to drop and turn into two Wilds (Top/Middle) on the next spin, then three Wilds (All) the spin after that, then two Wilds (Middle, Bottom) and finally just a Wild on the bottom.

4.) If you find a machine with Wilds left on multiple reels, (I did, once, unfortunately, the fourth reel Wilds were already on the middle/bottom setting, so I only got a Free Wild on the bottom) that's obviously huge.

5.) Happy hunting! I wish there were more of these, but there were only three total machines of this nature, I scoured the building looking!

I'm looking for these with my Free Play when I go to Vegas, though, I'll tell you that right now.

EDIT: I can't say for sure that fifth reel Wilds would really be worth that much, absent other Wilds, because you'd still have to string four in a row symbols together. I'm probably still going to play last reel Wilds only, though, (as well as all others) for the time being.

Good stuff! I will look for these games my next casino visit, which will probably be on Friday or Saturday, and report back.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I will be there this Friday through Monday. I will look and let you know what I find. I also can tell you I never find any of the quick hits there anywhere close to a + EV

I was finally able to get on a Quick Strike machine today with a minor jackpot at $49.12. Bought in for $5 and used free play on it and hit a couple of bonus rounds with free spins. Nailed it at $49.56 and cashed out $104.96.

You meat Quick Hits? I hit two today for $96 each and still lost $80.

The information will have a greater cumulative effect in helping people on this board than will hurt me by picking off the machines at WI at the times I just happen to also be there!
