If that was an honest thread then my apologies just wasn't sure - most people do not make threads about 12 dollar wins

The other day, a couple were playing 88 Fortunes at 88 cents and the bowl was completely full and never closed to give them the Progressive, even after they spun like 100 times. That was beyond disgusting and I felt so bad for them.

I will say that 88 fortunes is probably the most high variance slot I've ever seen in my life. I was playing something right next to it one day and saw a woman betting $15 a spin hit for $30k, hit the bonus feature and instantly mashed the 88x multiplier button x 4 spins. The max bet on the machine at this particular property was $250/spin, so it's possible to hit for half a million or more I'm sure.

edit: sorry, was thinking of lucky 88

$250 a spin! Oh my God! That's roughly half of my paycheck! :O

Then you should go for two spins

I would never risk my paycheck in two spins. The most I have ever spent on a single spin was $5.

I have played 88 Fortunes at the Eureka Casino in Mesquite. I was fortunate enough to hit the GRAND (paid $16k+)...Bet ews $1.76 a spin. Have played it several times lately (At Eureka in Mesquite and the Plaza, Fremont and Binions in Las Vegas). Hit the major ($800+) each session at Binions. Not so well at Fremont.

I have been lucky! No doubt about that!

Funny as in ironic in how I was shocked that anyone would gamble $250 a spin and I recently gambled away roughly that amount. -.-
