So I figured this might be a fun thread, seeing how this is a casino forum. This was the nice land based casino win I had yesterday at Jumers Rock Island, IL. I for sure can't complain what so ever about this win :)

1000x hit on these types of machines are very good. These are the new machines that are taking over casino floors. I do like the fact thatg you can view stats on these machines. It will show you the history of the wins. It shows like the 5 top wins and the 5 top bonuses in the last 24hrs. Ive spent some time playing them and looking at all the stats, and have seen very few 1000x hits.

Tried the Colossal Reels slots? One of the best games I've come across. Here's one from Spartacus I had in Vegas in October:

Yes I have, just can't get the machine to do anything. I've tried on all 3 occasions, and can't hit a free spin bonus or even something about $5.00 on a $0.50 bet. So I've kind of given up and gone back to some of the 5x4 and 5x3 machines with the progressives. Oh well there all fun though in there own way.

I play the Spartucus game and it's one of those feast or famine games. But I play it because it's one of those mindless machines. You can just punch spin and all kinds of reels turn. LOL!

Wow thats a great one. Doesnt get much better than all those wilds filling up the top of the screen (well I guess full screen would be better) Ive played that one a few times. I believe max bet was 2.50 I think Ive won a little but its great to see you can win a bunch.

I love these slots, Lil Red, Spartacus, and there are a few others in the series.

Handpays are good in Canada since we don't pay taxes on winnings. In the US they "confiscate" a chunk of your money when you get a handpay (even if you're not a US citizen and don't pay your taxes there), which really sucks. You can get it back but you have to hire an attorney to do the paperworks (not free) and it's a major PITA.

This is probably the only thing that I hate about Vegas (well, that and the rogue cab drivers).

Not if you are a UK citizen. They still do paperwork while you wait for your cash but you get the lot.

I am 99% positive anything over $1200 they take 30%, we can try to get the money back but have to quantify bets, losses and wins so a players card is pretty much the only way to track.

Let me guess....
From the airport to the strip by passing through the tunnel? $40 fare instead of $15?

$30 but yes. The irony is, the following year I actually asked the cab driver to go that way cos it seemed quicker LOL.
