    Triple wheel VP hit

    I've hit an extended streak of bad luck. I usually stick to $1 JOB, at least in the past few months. However, without 4OAKs you are doomed over the length of a session and I have had a terrible time hitting any. A straight flush is even more elusive and a ROYAL? Still waiting since I switched up to $1 machines more than a year ago. Had so many 4 to the royal hands but they were all busts... For example, just the other day. I am sitting there on the remains of my $300 BR after yet another no quad session bust and this dude sits down next to me. 10 minutes later he gets dealt a straight flush (playing JOB). He hesitates whether to hold out for a royal, then takes it. A few hands later he lands a quad. Unbelievable!

    So down and out of luck I sit down at this Triple Wheel Poker machine, playing at $.10 denomination JOB. I get the bronze wheel a couple of times, each time scoring the lowest bonus possible - of course. Now I am down about $70 and cursing the machine out when I get dealt a full house. Gold Wheel! Fully expecting the lowest bonus as usual. And to my total surprise the wheel stops at 10,000! That's one GRAND! Finally, after so many outings I get to leave with cash in my wallet... sorry no picture, I was quite disoriented in the shock from this. Maybe my luck has turned?

    Nice! A $1000 hit is always great.
    Moved back to Ohio from AZ. Rude awakening. The Ohio casinos are horrible.

    I love triple wheel poker. And, like you, I have hit both the lowest and the highest.

    Well the very first time I tried this machine it bailed me out on a bad night. I think I got a 1000 credit bonus then. Then the next time I kept getting the lowest bonuses all night long. Swore I'd never put money in it again, because the wheels clearly seem to 'rigged', i.e. not weighted equally. Then this last time it was more of a desperation move since nothing else was paying out. Getting the max bonus was a huge surprise.

    The thing is it's impossible to tell what the payback is. You have the base game but you are also paying 6 credits for the bonus wheel feature. It's even less predictable than UltimateX as at least there you know the multipliers in advance.

    Ugh, another success story to report. Took about 3 hours and heavily tested my patience, but the JOB triple wheel paid out again. I was playing 3 hands in 10c denomination (a $2.10 bet). The thing is you have endure long periods of zero action (bad dealt hands) whittling down your BR. The bronze wheel gave me no love - 60 credit bonus 3 times in a row (!) - and I was close to giving up before a series of quads erased part of the loss and then I got the Gold Wheel twice in quick succession. The first time it was for 125 (aaargh!), but then it finally paid - 5000, half the max possible. Thank you very much, $360 net profit!

    I hit it again about a month ago for $1000 at the $.10 denom (JOB), so again the max jackpot. Invested $140, netted $860. Took 2 bronze wheels and one silver wheel. First Gold wheel hit after that. And again too shocked to get a picture...
