OUCH!
I didn't realise you were such an unlucky and degenerate gambler.
Next you'll be confessing to .... Noooooo. Not that.

Nope. And don't feel bad about it. It's all luck.

Paris LV, March 2014. I max bet QHP machine that was ripe (not linked) @1.50 for 12 hours straight, with 9 QH progressive over 22,400. Got up @ 4am, moved over 1 machine. Little old Asian lady sat down quick, 3-4 pulls later, she hit it. She grabbed me, hugged me, thanked me for getting up, cried for a while. Not a dime came my way. And I didn't expect one. TBH, slight grudge for an hour, 99% envy, then I was over it. But I won't forget it happened, either. First time I saw those machines hit 9QH.



That is totally brutal. I would have gone on tilt after that.

But the way the RNG spins, BBB may have missed the timing of the winning combo if she didn't get up. If it then hit on the machine she didn't move to... well, let's not go down that rabbit hole...

Could not believe I saw the guy as soon as I came in, I gave him $50. Seems like a good will payment, I'll get another machine from him eventually.

It's just politics. I like winning, when it's too easy, sometimes you have to offer some dignity. Sometimes, not all the time. Had I spent 30 minutes with no loss, before hitting the progressive, my opinion would have been different. Had it been a different game, my opinion would have been different. It's a rare circumstance. Had he not told me he was going to leave it before he did, I would have assumed he would stay with it and someone else would have hit it.

I had just gotten to the casino this morning when I spotted an open ended progressive 60% bigger than any I'd ever seen. Didn't even have a chance to play it when I saw him coming by. After I paid him, hit that thing in two spins, instantly had the $50 returned to me 5 times over. 5,000 nickel insurance to your prophecy.

Good move, I did something very similar when a guy left me a good bar on the machine where horticulture battles the undead and he saw me hit the Free Games in just a couple spins. He pretty much lost everything he had on him trying to hit them.
