Okay, this just happened yesterday Wednesday, December 19th. There happened to be a free slot tournament going on. This casino is actually a pretty small casino that compliments the biggest casino in MN -- Mystic Lake.
Anyway, there was this one guy who won one of the rounds of the slot tournament, sometimes these tournaments there is a finalist round but these were all self-contained. So there are 12 players each round, 1st place got $500, 2nd place got $200 and 3rd through 12th place got $50 slot play.
Continuing on....that one guy won 1st place for $500. Later on......I happened to see him playing a newer game I've never seen before called: China River, that game is actually made by Bally but interestingly enough it mostly resembles China Mystery or even China Shores which both made by fellow competitor Konami. Anyway, there are 30 paylines with upto 15 credits per payline and he was betting that max of 30 lines and 15 credits per payline for a total of 450 credits on this penny machine.
And furthermore, he got the bonus. Not many spins to start with, but he got a 160 spin re-trigger in the bonus which actually helped since he got an over $2,000 hit on one spin!! His final total was around $2,450. Not bad for a penny machine.
I don't usually go to Little Six but now I'll definitely go in the future. And if you are ever out by Mystic Lake, make sure to take a look at Little Six.
