    Hey Guys i thought it's fun to make a thread about my upcoming trip to the US. As often i go for vacation to the US for 3 weeks. Starting on the 10th of October (next Friday).

    I already planned about 4-5 landbased casino visits, and besides that lots of cool other things... Thought it might be fun to keep you guys updates about my trip here... Sharing my best screenshots in the casinos but also maybe other findings and funny pictures i will make there. I will not play online slots for those 3 weeks over there so i can focus on making posts and keeping you guys in the loop :)

    Maybe it's fun for some of you... :)

    Hope you like the idea!

    I just think after over 1000 posts it's a definitely more than just a random forum for me. Although i still prefer meeting people in person, this is just such an awesome community, and my friends are not as crazy about slots as i am, so it's good to find other "sick" people out there ;-)

    PS: When i now think about it, i think the only reason for this post is that you guys won't forget me, and my favorite casinos will still be sending me offers when i'm back :):)

    Cheers

    I'll follow your journey, but please some normal photos too. I'm not that interested in some machines I'll never see for real :)

    Have a good time :thumbsup:

    If you find yourself in Atlantic City, New Jersey be sure to check out all the happening joints in The Borgata; You must register/login in order to see the link.. A lot of nice little bars and eateries and the buffet is second to none. Of course they also have all the latest slots and all other games.

    I also highly recommend the Tun Tavern; You must register/login in order to see the link.for a nice micro-brew and their 1 pound burger.

    Enjoy.

    How much of that jackpot have you got left?......;);)

    Have a good time!

    As for Tirilej just put a sticker of the 32red logo on each slot you photograph and then she'll be interested....:D

    Well, maybe less than you think but i got out of my leasing, bought a new car, paid already all taxes for this year, paid off older open taxes and bills etc.

    It was life changing for me as i have now more breath and it's easier to put something aside

    No, I wasn't suggesting you'd squandered it. You've just done what any rational person would've done i.e. get 'ahead' on things then treat yourself and left a clear path for the future. I think most on here would agree it would have been a shame for someone less controlled than you to have won it and then given it all back. Enjoy the holiday! :thumbsup:

    A few days after the big win i was betting crazy. I just wanted to experience that, so i did bets over 10$, but only for a few days because i wanted to experience how that is.... (Did it only once in my life back in my days when i wasn't that strong). I probably risked loosing a couple of thousands (worst case), but i went out of this pretty much break even.

    I still bet higher though as i've used too but i'm again very strict about bet sizes. I used to be a low roller, now i'm more of a mid/high roller betting mostly between 3 and 5$ (but never more). But i'm not blasting more money overall, i just have quicker sessions sometimes :)

    Hey Guys,

    just arrived in Amarillo,Tx after a fun time at the Winstar Casino in Oklahoma. Awesome place. Different buildings each representing a different city in the world, with fitting restaurants etc. Fantastic.

    Insane amout of slots.

    Was up and down several times.... Including a 1000$ win where they took 38% taxes away, grrr.... In the end i finished my first casinomon this trip eith sround 200$ plus. A big achievment as i leave the landbased casinos (other hüthan online ones) mostly negative.

    I had a funny session at the Walking dead slot. a really fun slot with a huge amount of different bonus features and interesting random wild features on any spin. Really cool. I will keep you guys posted, now i'm relaxing... I made the same mistale again that i make every time and thought i can easily make it through a large Pizza Hut pizza.... It's not easy though....

    PS: Please someone note down all slot release between 10 Oct and 1 of November, so that i can test them all when i'm back ;-) So far i know about the MG devil one and the new South Park slot coming up end of Oct.

    Cheers

    We need more photos! And please make few videos of bonus rounds, I'm sure your camera is able to record videos.

    Net Ent introduced Cosmic Fortune, and we are still waiting for the Game of Thrones to be announced.

    Hey Guys,

    finally another update... Since my last update we went to Vegas, Laughlin and are now at wonderful Lake Havasu in the middle of the desert. After two grewt Xountry shows along the way (Zac Brown / Toby Keith) were heading out for Phenix today. Last casino on the lost is then Casino del Sol in Tucson.

    Unfortunately i always get magically soaked in by all these "big" slots, at least sometimes it pays out. I love the Walking Dead slot, especially because the bonus wheel get's retriggered automatically if you win coins and a jackpot until you hit a bonus round. willy wonka is also funny, especially ir the oompa loompa feature is in a good mood. Some more pictures will follow later as my wifi connection is horrible here...

    Can't wait to try out all the new online slots when i'm back... so far as i see are the red mg one, the new south park slot and a new playngo rich wilde slot.... exciting ;-)

    cheers from the hot but beautiful Lake Havasu.

    Oh no Chilis. You need to go explore some more restaurants. Chains like this have gone down significantly because its mostly shipped in prepared food that's warmed up.

    If you aren't an American, you still have to pay taxes??? OMG!
    Do the gambling addicts get 38% of their yearly losses back too? :rolleyes:

    You pay taxes upfront to the casino but you can claim them back when you get home. You have to send them a form and stuff.

    If they keep track of their losses and they are greater than their wins they can claim all their "winning" taxes back at the end of the year. Basically, if you're in the red at the end of a fiscal year you don't pay taxes.

    In Canada you don't have to pay taxes on casino wins except if you do it for a living (like a pro poker player) and your wins exceed your losses.
