A linked must-hit for an entire bank is very old. The machines themselves have no indication of a must-hit, you just have to look up at the topper to see that they are.

I've never seen a must-hit-by machine in a bank with a linked progressive. Has anyone else?

Might be my mistake, but it seemed like this is what he was talking about. Additionally, I don't have any desire to interact with you, you have been disciplined twice almost back to back, have you not learned anything in 3 weeks. It's you, not me, so stop blaming me for your actions.

Thanks to the Wizard and this thread I decided to give going for the major must hit jackpot at a River Dragon which I discovered was at a high meter

Wizard states meter=$4901 as the "bend" to begin and this one was just a bit shy at meter=$4897 (I am not doing the exact cents for these amounts. Instead I am rounding up or down a bit)

I hunkered down for the big fight. My strategy was to move like lightning. Max bet $8.80 button mashing. It could go bad doing this easily losing a grand in just a few minutes if things went south. But the meter would move quickly

I noted at max bet meter movement was 2 cents, 2 cents, 3 cents, repeat. The minor had a different movement. I think 7 cents per spin but I was button mashing and not paying strict attention to that one. Note: minor was at meter=$452 so nowhere near the "bend" but not too distant either

I came out swinging. On the 11th spin I won a bonus of 144 spins and a $4,090 jackpot. (Didnt take a pic. My mind was just on too much adrenaline)

Slot attendant reset machine so I returned to playing while she went for the money

Bam second knockdown punch scored. Second jackpot hit before she even returned with the cash. Got the pic this time



After that big start I had a big decision to make. I now had won MORE than I was aiming at in the major. Go on and risk giving back my winnings or close up shop a big winner having risked very little up to that point?

I am a very brave (read:stupid) soul so continued head on into battle

For quite some time it was back and forth. Lose a grand then win a few $200-500 spins and very slow degrading of my bankroll although still way up

Wiz listed meter=$4945 as optimal for winning the major. Well no go for me. Passed it with no knockdown

Then bam I made my move around the meter=$4950 mark with another 80 spin bonus round



Then bam, before the attendant returned history repeated. Too stunned to take photo. It was for $2,251.

I was smoking hot now. Had the dragons on the ropes. Went in for the kill and bam hit a bonus round jackpot again



nearly $16,000 in jackpots!!!

No way I was going down now. In it to win it. Little old lady keeps waltzing around asking me if Im gonna be playing long at that machine. Little old lady dont you see Im not going anywhere. Watch out for little old lady vultures

Things quieted down till about the meter=$4960 mark. Got one more jackpot for $1,804. Sorry no picture. Dont remember why I didnt take it. Was wearing down. This was a marathon fight going on near four hours.

Somewhere around here the minor went down at $490. Not too far off from the Wizards prediction.

And things began to go south now. The River Dragons were suddenly pounding me with lefts and rights. Dozens of spins with not a penny won

By meter=$4990 nearly $4000 handed back to the damn dragons. But it was pointless to stop now! That little old lady was still waltzing behind me every few minutes salivating. NO WAY WAS THAT HOW I WAS GOING DOWN!

Finally with hope just around the corner came the final knockout punch. Dragons down. MAJOR IS MINE!



Final score(rounded off):
$23,000 in jackpots
$8,000 handed back to the Dragons (approximately)
$15,000 profit for going the distance (approximately)

Oh and a comped dinner at the steak house for me and my party of four from the host afterwards

Great write up! It's interesting that the must hit jackpot was not that much more than the other prizes awarded along the way.

Hehe... Does the Wizard get a referral bonus?
When I die, I want everyone who ever worked with me on a group project to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

The only little old lady I like is my mother. All others can keep on waltzing.

Thanks, you tell a good story!
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
