Well, when you were in your 20s what were you two playing?

Also i dunno if you clarified it or not, or if i missed this. The money she gambled with, she earned that on her own right? If it was money you earned, i could see a higher level of frustration here.

We’d mainly do pai gow, but I would watch her play penny slots more. But then they were 15-20 cents a spin, not 50-75 like they are now.

The money is both of ours, but we really can’t afford to be losing hundreds of dollars very often.

My wife only plays with her money. I'd throw
the dollar out the car window before I put
it in a slot. I never played slots much and
in 1999 I won $2500 by putting $5 in a
slot while waiting for my wife. That's
the last time I played one, so I'm ahead
on slot play.

Meh. Yeah many slot machines are 50-75 cents a bet now. And she's probably played all the 15-20 cent games you can find at Horseshoe.

Unfortunately, by the way you're talking, it seems she's gained a typical slot player's mentality. She just wants to play and doesn't really care as much about the final result. But Pai Gow is like a total 180 of slots. Slow, no big wins or losses. I would think she finds it boring versus slots now. I wish i had good advice on how to get her to switch games, but i'm blanking.

Might have better luck converting her to VP since that's faster pace (but it sounds like you tried and failed :(), but with your bankroll amounts, single line quarters or multi line nickels is the most you two could play. And Hammond doesn't have many good games at that level. The best they have is 6/5 Bonus UX for nickels (~98%) near the poker room, afaik. I'm overdue for a visit there myself actually.

Ploppy slots = no good.

Advantage slot situations = the best ever.

p.s. I'm not talking about vulturing.

I always tell people to play the Blazing 7's, Sizzling 7's, and Double Diamond three reel slots. They seem to be less volatile with fair paybacks.



I thought so once too, but those are money eaters if you play $1 minimum machines. You're basically playing $3-$5 a spin on Max credits and you will be lucky to get a set of Mixed 7's for a $200 payout for every $150 you put into the machine.

If you luck out and hit the 7's early, you must be content with the win and have discipline to leave. But I always see people give back numerous Mixed 7's wins going for the "Jackpot." Not realizing if they hit mixed or 3 red 7's at least 5 times, it's the same or better than winning the jackpot!

I did get lucky last Thursday on a Blazing 7's machine last week and hit the Progressive after only $280 into the machine, but lord knows how much I would've lost if the jackpot hit didn't happen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rM27T3JTrj4&feature=youtu.be

My sister is a slot lover as well and almost exclusively plays slots . I introduced her the game "High Card Flush," which has similarities of slots. You're given 7 cards. You don't think and just play them. The side bets are similar to slot wins, when you win they are huge wins. My sister now gravitates towards High Card Flush over slots and it has a MUCH better house edge.
