I had always thought casino's didn't allow pictures of their machines. Or at least, I assumed that and never gave it much thought as I didn't feel a need to take a pic until being on this website.
Can you openly take a phone pic standing at a machine?



I've never had any issue taking pics or video for 10-20seconds of a jackpot win in any las vegas casino.

First time I've hit this hand. I still hate this game Mission146. :P. Just like my gf still hating deuces after vulturing nickel deuces. Haha

If you hate this, you'll love JW2. Pretty complex, but fun, imo.

By the way, congrats on your first Quint.

I used to play something called "Bonus Poker" that was really not, it was like JW2 but on a manufacturer that was Indian Casino specific. The "bonus" was a separate jackpot for quad Aces, with a 10% meter if I remember, individual to each machine, even if the bank was otherwise linked. Then there were three jackpots, #1 being quints and it reset at $1000 for a $2 bet. I would search for the Aces to make it a positive play, and I can't count the times I hit quints on the way toward the Aces, maybe an 1-1/2 hour play, and cracking four figures is always a good way to start the morning.

Too bad Suncoast torched their JW2. Great game, and who the hell can play it correctly anyway?

JW2/AC Joker is when I cheat on my phone. Those games were made by the devil himself. It's sorta unfortunate I vultured that quint at that casino. I would rather have saved it for the bartop. It has AC Joker Poker plus progressive royal that starts at $1000 which sometimes gets positive (not today). Quints would have been $1000 on that as well.

Also, first time I have hit 4 natural Jacks since Feb. 2016 at Planet Hollywood. Now the quad I haven't hit in the longest...Aces, of course (Sept. 21st).

Oh yeah, AC Joker, I forgot about that. I was thinking of the other kind of JW2, the 99.92 kind.

lol You write down stuff like your last natural quad Jacks? That would drive me nuts. I mean, more nuts. Sounds like you should not play 4-of-a-kind bingo on 'Gambler's Bonus'.

Anyway, congrats on your vulture.

Since I got a smartphone, I have kept track of all natural quads or better with pictures.. These Jacks are the longest drought of anything, iirc. 82 quads inbetween them. So filling it might have sucked. The one and only time I played at a bar that used Gambler's Bonus, I got a quad in less than 100 hands... ;)

LOL!

Nice hit! If it makes you feel better, I mainly play, 'Ugly Ducks,' now, it's almost half a percent better than the best Jokers game available to me where I play the most VP.

I gotta good Vulture Trip Report from tonight.

I played a little Spanish 21, the deck hit me upside the head, I felt lucky. So I cashed out and started to make my Ult-X vulture rounds, the bars closed after 2:00 a.m., it's Saturday, Drunk Night, and they've left. Which is good because it's a good time to go vulturing.

I pick up a few bucks, not much, and come upon a machine that has keno showing. I touch the screen and it doesn't budge. Then I notice there are 16 credits in it. Well, I know how that goes with IGT Keno, you ain't getting out of that screen until you make a full bet and play a hand. So I stick a hundred dollar voucher in it, it's 16 nickels, I figure I need to add 4 nickels, 20 cents. Usually I would never mess with a machine that has credits. But for some reason I was a bad boy tonight and silver-mined a machine where some poor drunk had played his last 16 nickels and didn't even get to play. Suddenly I realize it's one of those 4-play keno games, so I need to fork out 80 cents, not 20, I think. That sh*t confuses me. I pick seven numbers, the start button turns yellow, I press it. The machine locks up, call attendant, and I see the credits are 32000 and something. I don't even know how much 32000 nickels is, until the screen says call attendant - $1600. Well, how sweet it is Jackie Gleason!

So, I'm a little worried. I never put my card in, and had not intended to, I was vulturing. But what if the drunk who played his last 64 nickels had used his card? I get ready with my story. I walked up, put my voucher in, and pressed max bet. That's all I know, that's my story, and I'm sticking to it. For $1600 they can bar me. I ain't walking out of there without that $1600. They can take me to the back room and beat my ass, I'm taking that $1600. They can taze me, mace me, waterboard me, I'm not leaving without the $1600.

Anyway, the girl comes over, sweet as pie, no guards, takes my ID, pays me, I tip her, good night Irene.

The End.

(naturally I did not pull out my camera phone, or do any more Ult-X vulturing) Tomorrow's another day.
