So I was in flamingo yesterday and this guy was trying to get me to switch games after I got a multiplier, said it was a good way to "unlock" the machine......

Luckily for me, I hit a few nice hands and made $300, but you should look out for that kind of s$%^, he looked like the sort of person who should be on a list and not left alone with children......

Funny ... I have not seen it much but I watched a team of three guys hustle someone on the machine leaving huge ev on 25 cent and 10 cent then switched him to 5 cents until he went broke then they went to jump on I said something to them and pretended not to speak English

You don't see this everyday. Many times holding four cards you'll get the exact same card on the draw. This here is a tad tougher...

DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

If this ever happens to me I am going to switch to 5 credits, play off the multiplier and move over.

So some interesting vulturing... Had a machine malfunction and freeze up in the high limit room, and the machine is usually loaded (.50, 1, 2, 5 levels). Usually the EV from this machine alone is $100-$200, but on the very first play it froze when attempting to draw. The attendant had to reset the machine (wiping all of the mults off it). That was a hard one to swallow =/.

Axel does this machine malfunction count, or is it only when not holding the 5th card in a 4 of a kind? =P

Also, my buddy hit this:

I don't know but it did; none had any or any used mults after that, INCLUDING the game my buddy just played with two 2x's on a 3 play game. The mults he just used were gone too.

On that note, I forgot to add this to my first post... I can 100% CONFIRM (separate from this machine malfunction) that casinos have some setting to WIPE multipliers off machines after a certain period of time.

This has to be illegal. People PAY to have those multipliers, so taking them off the machines after 30 min or 1 hour or whatever is STEALING, right?

Should I be contacting gaming?

I don't think you have a case with Nevada Gaming. I have created multiple video slot machines that do this and they don't have a problem with it. The way the ones I have done worked was when a patron went to cash out it would prompt the patron that cashing out will clear any accumulated "bonus symbols". The patron then has the choice to cash out or continue playing. If the patron runs out of money (ie. credit meter zero), it prompts them that the "bonus symbols" will be cleared in "x" seconds if more credits are not added to the game. Using this method vultures will have to be literally standing behind the player to catch it in time.
