I've heard secondhand about one person during the previous car promotion, who won the car 4 times across 3 different casinos and was told that this guy swore by the "current session coin-in" method. However, I'm inclined to believe that he was just extremely lucky, and helped his own chances out by playing $125 per deal (100-play for quarters). After all, if it was as easy as current session coin-in, I would imagine that there would be a lot more people willing to partake in a race every time one of the jackpot meters in town was approaching its upper limit.

I know APs who swear by this coin in theory but they are all quarter players so to me it's like they are trying to say only high rollers can win this promo or they have a better chance. I can't prove them wrong but I know a player who played 100 play dimes and won two cars a few months ago. I personally played a ton of 100 play quarters and 5, 10, and 25 dollar single line and came up with air balls for the year on the shoot down. IMHO that doesn't mean anything except that I might be behind the expected win rate. I know they all love me and I get some amazing offers. It is just a matter of time before something happens in my favor and that will be Pow... Right in the Kisser!! The best part is I only have to break even to be very far ahead.

I wanted to play on a special point day yesterday at a different casino, which I did. The problem was when I got to the Casino I checked on the website to see the progressives of this shoot down. Fiesta Henderson was 19,200. It was a tough choice but I decided to let it go and just play the point day I had planned on. I was lazy and didn't want to drive over there to play. I am not sure if playing 2 machines with the same card makes a difference but that is what I usually do if I don't have someone else with me. I ended up with a nice loss on the day and it isn't easy to get to 19k or over on that shoot down. I don't think I made a bad choice but I certainly know that playing for the shoot down would be much less variance since I would play something small and play slow. The Palms is over 15k now.

I was able to get the wheel spin and I got 50 dollar Slot Play on both cards.


The Red Rock jackpot was up above 19.7k this morning around 5 am. I needed to go out to Summerlin anyway, so I left early and reached the casino with the jackpot at 19.8k. A few minutes later at 6 am, the wheel appeared on my machine. There's probably a $50 wedge somewhere, but I only saw $5 - $10 - $15 - $20 - $25 - $100 - jackpot.

I landed on a $15 wedge, between jackpot and $100.

Near the finish, the progressive was advancing about $50 per hour. A typical rate for that time of day would probably be about $20 per hour, so the impending jackpot did attract additional play, but nothing extraordinary.

Now all ten meters are below 13k.

The Big Time Bonus has been extended through September at all ten properties. I like this promotion better than drawings, although they do have a "Spin City" drawing planned for October 1st, with entries earned throughout the entire month of September.
