I expect a full written apology from rs- mad that I even doubted myself when I fully already knew this

I am the biggest loser in history at vulturing Shockwave Bonuses. And I'm not exaggerating. I was planning to save this story for my book I write someday about my gambling exploits, but I'll share this one with you guys. You'll probably never believe this, but I'm going to tell it anyway.

I played full pay 12/8 shockwave for several years at a casino in the Quad Cities. They ran 2x pts every Monday night, which was worth 1% cb, so it was a decent play, especially factoring in drawings. I started out on $1 5-coin, but eventually built my bankroll up and played $1 20-coin in their high limit room. However, the machines also had $2 and $5 denominations. Even though I typically played $1, I always checked the other denominations before starting to play, not really expecting to find anything. One night, not only did I find machine left in Shockwave mode, but it was the $5 denomination. 20 coins bet. With 4 hands remaining. I almost fell off my chair! I was licking my chops at the thought of scooping up a $80k quad. Alas, no success. But then the story gets even stranger. I checked the next machine over, and that machine was also left in Shockwave mode on $5 with max coins bet. This one with 9 hands remaining! At this point, I was starting to suspect I was being set up on a TV prank show. I played it off anyway of course. Damn, a loser again. Net -987 on the 13 hands (after $13 in cashback).

Thus, I claim to be the biggest loser in history at Shockwave vulturing. I have found 3 others throughout the years, but also never a successful conversion.

Not looking for your sympathy though; I've been very successful at Shockwave over the years :) I managed a $2 20-coin Shockwave once, had a 3-Shockwave day once, and had a 2-royals & a Shockwave in one night. Although, anyone whose played any significant amount of Shockwave knows that with the good comes the bad; many sessions down a Shockwave-worth in 4 hrs.

I'm not sure in all the years I have checked - that this play is even worth 3 dollars an hour

Yeah. You'd first have to be in a location with a bunch of machines and regular players that are obviously not that bright. There's a lot of machines here and I don't even bother. I haven't even looked since I discovered that it's even possible to do this.
DUHHIIIIIIIII HEARD THAT!

Really wish someone would invent a 15 credit per line ux game where multipliers added up hand over hand

I'm not too convinced a machine's RNG is going 24/7/365. Seems like a hell of a waste of resources for the machine to be doing that. It'd be like a blackjack dealer standing at a dead table, just shuffling the cards over and over again until someone sat down. Makes no sense. It'd make 1000% more sense for the machine to get an RNG right when you hit deal/draw, but not when it's sitting there idle or in between hands.

How often is a machine even being played vs idle? I'd guess it sits completely idle at least 90% of the time.

Maybe it just goes when there are credits in the machine. Just a thought... don't really know the answer.
