I have no idea what to call this title, but the title brings up a few points. I went to the casino bascially to eat tonight and played a little. I heard a machine go off outside the high limit room toward the front (which is rare). I saw this woman (20's I would think), playing what I believe is some sort of a double gold machine. This machine has I would estimate about 7 reels on it. It is a $1 machine and I am not sure how many is max credits but she was playing 45 credits at a time. There were several people watching her from a distance. I watched her go from $3400 or so down to $1100 and the machine went off with another jackpot. I went over and looked and it looked like a $2000 hit. (on the machine if you get all 7's on the entire line you get $1000. She also had a double in that mess,. A long story short, I was told by multiple people that, that was her 8th jackpot on that machine. I saw 2 of them myself done. The guy that told me about the 8 jackpots looked pissed and told her he was watching her. (which is not something I would say for sure). Anyway he acted like he couldn't believe it. I told him that she was doing $45 a hand and it can't be that hard hitting something betting at that high of a limit. (which I don't know why that wasn't in the high limit room, it is at the front when you walk in).
I am not sure how much she lost or what it took to hit those other jackpots. I know for a fact it took over $2000 for her to hit that last one.
Now for questions this brings up:
#1 what is the most amount of "handpays" have you seen someone get from 1 machine at one time?
#2 Greed: how much money do you want to win before you leave the casino? (we are talking about a local, not vegas and a long trip). (she was up $3400 atleast on the machine and continued to keep playing). I walk when and if I am up $1000. (less if I have been there for over an hour).
#3 Can she do a win/ loss statement to offset some of those taxes on those wg-2? For all I know she won $10,000 and threw it all back into the machine I don't know. (i went and ate pancakes and she was still on it when I left. I had to take half the pancakes home).
#4 What is the most amount of money have you seen someone lose after winning? I went to the highlimit room and someone hit a double all mixed 7's on the $25 double gold machine 1 credit. Then he played that machine and lost 40+ credits, at the same time he had a machine occupied on the other side and was up to 38 credits on it and lost it all also. I don't get the point? If you hit a handpay why don't you walk? what are these people trying to do? It is like my friend. He was making $500 a week. He went to the casino and hit $1000 on WOF. Then he ended up losing it and an extra $1000. The $1000 is alot to him but what the hell? Maybe someone can provide some insite on this?
It isn't just handpays. I was pretty excited to hit 60 credits on the 25c machine last night after not doing very well. I was on double triple stars. I hit a double then blank then triple for 60. If that double would have fell that was a 1/2 line above I would have had 3000 credits. I recently played the VP thing. The best hand I got out of about 10 hands was a straight.
