Got an email with a free chip from Oliver Curran's American Grand Casino...
What was strange while trying out the new games was that the new real-series slots have 1000$ per spin as the highest limit...Damn, no wonder he makes moolah if some whales spend 1K per spin...anyone seen higher slot limits :D

I read in a newspaper golfer John Cook lost $60 mln in B&M casinos playing $5000 a spin on slots.

Hi HateMG:

Are you sure about the name of the golfer? I can see where John Daly may have lost a substantial sum of money but not John Cook. Additionally, I think someone may have slipped an extra zero or two in on that newspaper article.

Have a good one.

Playtech Casinos have also Slots with $1000 maximum bet per game (Desert Treasue, Dr Lovemore and a Night out)

in the Newsletter from Casino King was a Winner featured with a $500.000 win on Desert Treasure. perhaps he was drunken and made a game with $1000 and got the Bonus Feature ;)

Last year when Jon Daly was in the playoff hole with Tiger Woods and lost, he recieved a cheque for $754000.00, drove directly to Vegas and started playing the 5k slots, left 5 hours later down 1.6m. Lets see, he's addicticted to tobacco, alcohol, food, gambling, who knows whatelse, I think maybe he's a candidate for that TV show Intervention!!

Hehe, never heard of such high limits before...in my opinion, 1K per spin is too much for almost anyone but that 5K per spin is really sick :eek2:

:eek2: I have a hard enough time with more than $3 a spin, let alone $1000 or more. May seem harsh to say, but some people have more money than brains. If I could afford to throw $1000 away on one spin I had damn well better be donating a lot of money to worthy causes too, or I don't think I could sleep at night.

Sorry, my bad. It was John Daly, for some reason John Cook name stock in my head. It was in New York Post couple days ago.

Shocking

I thought the $200 limit on Cabin Fever was too high when the older games had limits of around $40 to $75 at most.

There may be players who bet high, but with very few spins and hope for a bonus round. Playing in a guest account I can see why this can be attractive, running Munchkins at $75 yielded bonus rounds of several K, one of $7000 , however, when it went into MG "suck" mode as these bonus slots do often it ate my 10K fun money bankroll in 10 minutes!

That golfer must be crazy. That money can be invested in better places. He could even played some other games at a casino to better his chances. He got a gambling problem and needs to seek help. If the story is true.

Still trying to catch up on interesting threads I missed during my time offline.....so sorry about the bump :D

But anyways, here's a story about it, it's definately true - it's in his book I believe.

So much talent, so little control :(

snippet:
"I made $750,000 for finishing second … but instead of going home and closing the 2005 PGA tour season on a high note, I went straight to Vegas," he writes. "My first stop was the new Wynn Las Vegas casino, where they have this $5000 slot machine. Within an hour and a half, I was down $600,000. There went all that hard work against Tiger.

"Next I went over to Bally's. Got a $600,000 line. Won about $175,000 and took it back over to that damned $5000 machine. It owed me big-time. But I didn't hit shit on it. Got another $600,000 line from Wynn. Lost it in two hours on that $5000 slot. Back to Bally's, where I won another $80,000, then tried dialling down to the $100 slots, looking for a little streak so I could pay down some of what I owed.

"No dice: in less than five hours, I lost $1.65 million. So much for finishing the 2005 PGA tour season on a high note.
