On my way to Moon Maidens slotsI went to the casino at 4pm and the craps tables were either $10-$1000 or $15-$2000, and I meant to play at the $5 table. They had moved the tables around since a few months ago. There were 4 tables in this pit area instead of 2, but still only 2 open. They told me they changed the $5 table to a $10 table at 2pm. So I'm gonna have to get up a lot earlier to catch that. Even the BJ tables were $10 or $15, and no $5's. I saw one empty BJ table sign that was rotating through the limits. It said something like $100-$3000; $200-$3000, $500-$10,000; $10,000 Max; Private Table; then back to the lower known values not in the high limit room.
I had 2019 points on my slot card, to start 2019 with, and paid $5.37 for a slice of pepperoni & sausage pizza with 537 slot points while I brought my casino floor beverage into the food court. Of course they had to reheat the slice!
I spent some time watching others play slot machines because it's been something I've avoided in my previous dozen trips to the casino. I saw a Double Diamonds machine, in a souped-up old school way. I could bet 5 quarters per spin on it and win 4,000 quarters ($1000). There was a Super 7's (?) machine next to it where I could bet 2 coins and win less than $1200. Either machine you could bet way more and increase your chances for a W-2G form.
I saw a couple people playing a Different Drum machine (?) that had them playing multiples of 88 credits on the penny slots. Top Jackpot was over $17,000. They both lost $100 in a cold streak.
I saw 3 to 5 people playing a bank of machines at $2.50 a spin on the penny slots and turning less than $100 into over $300 on the free spins. The top jackpot was in the 5 figures (or 7 figures in pennies).
I wandered around looking at top jackpots for other slots and they ranged in the $5000 to $25,000 range, just for penny slots. One machine boasted winning a million credits for a certain reels result.
I found a very few $1 slots and $5 slots. People were playing $2 a hand video poker of various sorts, with a Royal Flush jackpot of $800. There was a new bank of dollar machines and the progressive jackpot read $10,000.00, so I wonder if nobody played them or someone forgot to turn the progressive on, or maybe it wasn't supposed to move anyway.
I found a slot machine I thought I'd chance called Moon Maidens. I put $10 in and got 1000 credits. I played 30 credits a spin, 60 credits a spin if I was over 1300 credits. I only got 3 spins at 60 credits. It just took me down & down until the free spins doubled my money from 650 credits to 1300 credits 3 times. The third time was the last and just lost and lost until I cashed out 1 penny.
I like the machine but it seemed excessively sensitive to my doubling my bet for a spin and going on long losing streaks.
I found 3 YT videos to remind me of the machine, that random others have recorded.

I came back to the casino the next morning after little sleep. I walked past the one craps table that was open and it said $5 at 10:45 am. So I wandered around to get my $10 match play coupon (they only gave me one instead of 2 this time), and to get a soda. I came back to the table at 11 am. I waited 5 minutes to buy-in because a shooter was in progress. Within about 2 minutes after I got my chips, some lady came up to the table and said they were raising the table limits to $10 at 11:30 am, but everybody who stayed at the table would be grandfathered in at $5 minimum bets. I stayed until 3pm (4 hours, but I had a plushy chair to sit in that I took from someone else who stopped using it during his hot roll). I won $100, which makes up for what I lost last year, but not the gas. I did a progression on the PB 8 and won $28 3 times. The guy next to me won $1250 on the Fire Bet, so he was free to leave & come back and bet $10 later. He was betting progressions on hardways and horn bets and the 4 & 10 PB, and he was rolling a lot of hard 10's and craps numbers while the point was established. I couldn't really bet with what he was doing since it was so personal to his roll and he was talking too fast for the dealers to keep up. I got called for a lot of weak rolls from the end of the table, but I think it was obvious the dice stuck where they landed. Later I moved to stick right and used soft rolls against the backwall.
The 2nd craps table, opened up around noon was a $15 table. I was told by the other players that they raise the limits when the $5 table gets full. Meanwhile 3 other tables are sitting empty. Just put it down to casino greed.
Won A Million Credits!On TheBigJackpot YouTube Channel this guy played Invaders Return From The Planet Moolah and he got 721 free spins at 700 credits a spin and won over a million credits during the over 1 hour free spin-a-rama. He strolls up to the machine just before 18 minutes into this livestream.

On another broadcast he had 24 handpays totalling $98.5K, but had a balance of -$3K, for a shortfall of $101.5K! The taxman is going to need receipts of this guy's losses or it is going to be a nightmare for him come tax time.

On a competing YouTube channel, Slots N-Stuff, the player was betting 45 credits (9 lines x 5 credits) at $20 a credit and hit 150 free spins (10 x 15 free spins) for 22,335 credits ($446,700 hand pay)!

The slots 'n'stuff $900 per spin play up to nearly half a million might be a bit more impressive if it wasn't in a 'play for fun' mode.
Here's a direct quote from the comments on one of his other vids. Same poster, Same machine.
I have set up this slot machine with Treasures of Valhalla by IGT to have $25 denomination and a max bet of $900 a spin. We are trying to hit the $1 MILLION DOLLAR JACKPOT! STILL... lol...
For the new visitors - This is a personally owned full size slot machine running at the maximum payout percentage of 97.08%. It is a 100% REAL slot machine and not a PC game. This is just for fun play and is not real money. Thanks for watching and be sure to subscribe and share the channel!.
Anyone can come up with a monster win like that if they own the machine and can record 24/7 without having to put a dollar in!
Chumpchange will pretend that what you just said is over his head and continue to post links, which you have indicated is against forum rules
Hi ODG and CC,
Posting such links is not against the rules, within reason. I've given CC some flak for his recent posting of many related links to one youtube channel. But I now accept his motives and if he want's to post more of the same, that's fine by me. I'd leave it up to Wizard to decide if the links become excessive.
posting the link is one thing, but posting along with it this kind of stuff, ie "💰Raja Literally BREAKS Top Dollar💰It's a Slot Machine Channel Takeover" along with it, is mind-blowingly moronic but also evidence that your first suspicion is correct, that he is in cahoots with whoever is making money on this
The extra added on stuff there is subjecting the members to advertising, how is that even debatable?
The machine literally broke on what would have been Raja's last spin since he was giving verbal calls that it would be his last spin so he could cash out at $50K (unless he hit another little win of course). What I noticed when I posted Raja Literally BREAKS Top Dollar in the thread about a slot malfunction was the change in the color of the reels when the lights went down/out. Really, what makes the reels glow?
I think everyone who should be worried about slot malfunctions should have a smartphone camera with them at the slot machines because discrepancies and malfunctions, and outright theft by the internet of state lotteries at racino casinos on the slot machines needs to be documented. Don't use your phone at table games though. I've seen YouTube videos of surreptitiously recorded table games, and people in the videos have been appropriately blurred out.
It's getting kind of difficult to win less than 24,000 credits ($1200) on a nickel machine with the way they make slot machines these days.
My even $ Bet SystemI'll start with a buy-in of 10 units and a 1 unit bet and add 1 unit to my betting every 5 hands I'm ahead; but after I get past 4 betting units, I'll add 2 units every 5 hands until I'm 5 hands past the 10 unit betting balance which is 60 units above 120 units. I'll be up 170 units after winning 35 hands.
I WON $120 ON THE PB 6, PLAYER CARD UPGRADEHad my biggest win at the tables just place betting the 6 on a $6, $6, $12, $12, $12, $24, $24, $24 progression, and betting the line only when I was shooting. By the time I was shooting a second time, they put up a shot clock telling everybody they were gonna double the table minimums in 20 minutes. I was told by another player I would be grandfathered in, but I won so much I decided to call it quits. Now I'm down $18 and a tank of gas for the season.
I also got to 2000 points on my player card (after about 20 hours of playing at the $6 level), so they upgraded me to a new card which qualifies me for free drinks at the tables, which I was already getting anyway. I'd have to gamble for 20 hours at the $120 bet level to get to 40,000 points which is the next card upgrade; and gamble for 20 hours more at the $360 bet level to get to the 160,000 point level to get to the top card upgrade. Would this take a week or two? Depends on my luck.
Edit: I need 6 wins in a row on the progression to get to $60. 11 wins gets me to $200 with my bet still out there.
"just place betting the 6"
when I have see someone try that system, the 8 rolls almost out-of-control.
Then they change over to just the place 8 and the 6 rolls like there is no tomorrow.
luck is everything
some never get lucky
no house edge needed
I told the dealer to put $6 on the 6, he put it on the 8 at the start of hand. I had to tell him to put it on the 6, like it was my lucky number or something. If I win enough, at certain levels I'll cover both the 6 & 8. I'm only 3 hot hands in a row from turning $60 into over $1000! Just need to hang out at the tables more!
Edit: My computer died immediately after this post. It could be the power supply, the motherboard, or something else. It just shuts off while booting up, even while in the BIOS, and the clock is OK. The computer is 10 years old, but I've made little progress fixing it. It took my Wizard Of Vegas password with it, so I had to reset it weeks later.
Starting with a $200 bankrollI'm starting out with $200 myself, and I'm making it 3 sessions of $60 for 10 x $6 bets per session. If I just bet the passline, or just a placebet, I have an object goal to double or nothing my session money somehow, sometimes multiple times. A session might last typically 30-90 minutes this way. I could stretch a session out to 5 hours if I had no real luck. But $60 is like just the damn minimum I can play for a session. If I was up $60, I might add single odds; if I was up $120 on top of that, I'd bet the 6 & 8 for $6; with 4 sets of $60 sitting in my rail. If I get to $480, I could double my bets to $12. I find table minimums to be an extreme concern on a low budget. Monday-Thursday before 6pm I can find a $5 table. Outside of those times it's likely higher table limits.
Whatever your strategy, whatever your risk capital, you MUST record your results accurately. A couple of things, I don't agree that "stretching a session out" is in any way indicative of making money. Mostly likely, most of the time, you are playing at a disadvantage. As such, playing longer sessions only hurts you. The advantage of playing shorter term is that you may, (read "might" or "could") possibly be playing just a handful of lucky sessions. Upon this you should try to capitalize. This disadvantage is that most of the time you may lose, depending on what part of the probability curve you happen to fall in during the time you play.
If $200.00 is your bankroll, hmmm, then focus on building it up with small systematic wins and probably couldn't lose more than 20.00 per session or 10.00. Your focus isn't on how much money you are making, but over the haul of 10 or 20 sessions making money, period. Even if its a few bucks. If you are lucky and experience wins first before a drawdown, you can be successful with this $200.00. But the odds might be or probably are that you will find a drawdown larger than your bankroll and bust out. If you are really committed to being profitable at this game, busting out on this is just tuition for your gambling education.
This all of course assumes that you will act in the casino as you have planned, exactly, with no deviation. Both things: a tested plan for the bankroll and bets you intend to place, and 2. the skill to carry out the plan in a casino are high level skills. Of the two, the latter is the most difficult, and may take years to perfect depending on your personality and risk tolerance vs. assets.
Whatever you do, you MUST record your results, so that in the event of winning and losing you have data to analyze. I believe the keys to record are Time, Date, Location, Game or Table number, profit or loss, and you might also include the Beginning amount, the high of the session, the low of the session and the amount you have at the close of your session. Having these numbers over many sessions can provide valuable information for adjustments to your plan, and you can also use it to forecast how it might look if you have more capital to apply to your game.
Hope this helps at all.
