I think it's normal to autocorrect for such mistakes.

Where is the error in this sentence:

You can bet 1X, 2X, 3X, 6X or 10X the 88 coins max and it will multiply your payouts by that much. If you have a 1,000 coin payout based on symbols, and 10X that, you should get a 10,000 coin payout. I could not find out if the progressives are on a multiplier too. If they are not, the lower progressive jackpots will be kind of irrelevant compared to your other payouts. I saw a guy lose $200 betting $8.80 a spin on a penny machine with hardly a win, so beware if you're on a small budget.

I saw another game that had 1 cent, 2 cent, 5 cent, and 10 cent denominations. When I clicked through them the Mini & Minor Jackpots were multiplied by the change in denomination but the Major & the Grand Jackpots were not.
1 cent:
Mini: $10.00
Minor: $50.00

2 cents:
Mini: $20.00
Minor: $100.00

5 cents:
Mini: $50.00
Minor: $250.00

10 cents:
Mini: $100.00
Minor: $500.00

Wiz,

The error is the double "the".

Correct. This probably works better when written out so that the first line extends the width of the page.

I think the preponderance of the evidence suggests the number of coins in the bowl is irrelevant.

On another topic, what is this symbol called:



Mrs. Wizard says that gold bars are shaped like this in China. The image above shows three of them stacked. The Chinese term for them roughly translates to "gold money treasure." If you dig around the Internet, they seem to get translated as an "ingot." That is such an ugly sounding word. If you then search on ingot, it comes back as a metallic bar.

Some sources call them boats, but Mrs. Wizard strongly refutes the idea they are supposed to be boats, although they do look like them a little.

There has got to be a term in English for these things.

Those are three ingots stacked. A couple of other slots have them but they are generally the single variety of them. 50 Dragons bonus symbol is a single ingot which is how I learned what an ingot is. There is another slot where the ingot is the bonus symbol and the emperor is the wild. I forgot the name of that slot however.

I just returned from the Suncoast to see if this is true of 88 Fortunes. I can categorically state that it's not true for that game. The jackpots are the same regardless of how much you bet.

You need to bet a certain amount of gold symbols in order to become eligible for certain jackpots. So is it a smart play to try and "snipe" jackpots that are much more inflated than they usually are?

For example, let's say the Major jackpot is over $1,000.00, and let's say that this is much bigger than it usually is (I don't actually know if that's true but let's just say that it is for the purposes of this hypothetical scenario). Let's also assume that the Grand jackpot was recently hit and therefore it's much smaller than it usually is. Would it be the smart play to only bet 4 gold symbols in order to keep costs down and try to trip that inflated Major? Or is it always unwise to concede the chance of winning the Grand?

Any progressive game is potentially positive. I have almost new clue when they are big enough with 88 Fortunes. With four different jackpots, I would hazard to say, almost never. However if one were especially high, I would bet only enough to be eligible for that jackpot in the Fu Bat bonus.

Yeah, I used to ignore 88 Fortunes and Dancing Drums at my casino because I am only interested in advantage machines. But lately I've started taking notes as to the jackpot amounts of these games, and I am trying to create a "highest I've ever seen the Grand/Major/etc. jackpot" record to get a feel for what is a much greater jackpot than usual to inform my decision to perhaps go after one.
