What would be thrilling, and REALLY the ultimate vulture, would be finding the game Shockwave abandoned in Shockwave Mode. That has never happened to me.



I have never found that either.

Way back when Shockwave first came out I found one in Shockwave mode. The game was rarely played compared to all the other games, on top of that, the odds of someone hitting a four of a kind and not playing the bonus seems fairly rare.

I actually found one once. Playing .25, the machine was flashing something odd, I went to .05, there it was. Did not strike gold. Made me wonder why someone would leave it. Near the buffet at the Orleans. Maybe time to eat...

I say it is best to not help such a person who is obviously not self-motivated in any way. We all see degenerates and all they do is want more than they can obtain through advantage by turning advantage money into disadvantage gambling. Eventually they will find themselves in quick sand anyway and not know it, eventually there will be nobody to ask a question they cannot possibly care to answer themselves. It's different trading answers, but when a person has nothing, nowhere is where they deserve to be and they will be better off, because they will find something they are suited for.

For the most part, I think it's just complete total ignorance where they have no clue they are even in a bonus round. They just assume all the flashing is because they just scored a four of a kind. They're overcome with happiness so they hit that cash out button and head for the cashier.

How far are you from the casino, how much time do you spend there, and what did you gamble on besides Ultimate X?

My gf while watching me play found an abandoned one at Tunica roadhouse once on quarters because she has better hearing than me. She wasn't interested in playing it, so I did. But I mostly bricked though. She's also found a 10/6 DDB bartop gaffe before. For as little VP as she plays, she's pretty observant.

Sounds like a good one.
