I swore I'd stop playing Lock-It Hearts, and Lightning/Dragon link type slots:
https://wizardofvegas.com/forum/gambling/slots/29898-why-do-casinos-cap-the-major-jackpot-at-1000/2/#post622910



I'd thought i've played enough to satisfy my slot itch.

but everytime I goto a casino since then, usually for live poker, I stop by these Lightning/Dragon link machines and pop in a $20.
usually during bathroom breaks.
I'd only play games with a capped $1000 Major, or if the Lock-It Hearts major was more than my W2-G win last year.

for that bathroom break, I'd stop at either losing all $20 or hitting a bonus round.

how do I stop myself from playing these games?

it doesn't help I've never lost all $20 since my post that I swore I'd stop playing.
I'm probably breakeven or up a couple of $ since that post.

note: I bring $1000 to play poker so $20 doesn't mean much.
it's just annoying that im drawn to these type of games like a moth to a flame

Use the money on professional help that you would have spent on slots? Or, pocket the money and just stop going to casinos. If you're in CA I'll collect your mailers for you 😇

I saw a dollar Buffalo slot($40 bet) and had to try it once. Just seeking variance, that's all.

The lock it links are addictive

Ive won the major 3 times in 3 months. 2 times in the $2k range and once at $8k

I dont remember the first two exactly. On one og those days i had won 8 different jackpots including the major. It was close to ten grand

On the day i won the $8k major i had lost $2500 before hitting it. I was just about to quit when bang it struck

I should point out i was playing max bet nickels which is $12.50 each spin so im certain my coin-in was pretty hefty

why play max by nickels?

Won't min bet penny give same odds of hitting the major?

Yes but i wasnt playing with winning the major in mind. Thats just luck when you hit it. I play max because i like to gamble high

Considering i won 3 times in as many months it wouldnt surprise me if the odds did improve but i cant say that for certain
