    When you hope the Bonus STOPS paying :)

    Went to the local to use $90 in FP, grab a buffet with the DW and head home on a Friday evening.

    Saw a nice Buffalo Grand and although they've been stingy lately, it can be a fun game. Blew threw the first $45 in FP playing $1.50/spin as the gentleman next to me hits 3 low-paying bonuses. He gets up frustrated (no, I don't know how you can be frustrated getting 3 bonuses in a short time). So, I get up, move to that machine, full well knowing the machine I just left will hit immediately.

    I get into bonus on about the 3rd spin. Machine hits the following "Bonus Wheel Minor". Spin the Bonus Wheel and this comes up:

    Me now happy as I figure I can play a little. Cash out at $300 after an uneventful 8 Free Spins. Head to buffet, wondering if I will find my way back to this machine. Shockingly after dinner, same machine is open (this is Friday evening).

    Play for a while, treading water, figuring I will play $100, leaving up $300 for the evening when a seemingly dull Bonus of 10 Free Spins comes up. On the 5th Spin in the Bonus, I get 2 Kings in the first column, 2 Kings in the second column, 1 King and a Multiplier Wild card in the third column, 1 King and a Multiplier Wild Card in the fourth column and FOUR Kings in the 5th Column. I initially believe this is a nice, but relatively tame win. BOTH Wild Card symbols turn into 3X, of which I have two of them meaning the five Kings are now multiplied by 9. The Kings are now worth 1440 due to the 9X, while the column multiplier goes 2X2X2X2X4 = 64. This relatively tame looking line hit means 1440 x 64 = $921.60. Photo included:

    A couple of $20 hits on spins 6 and 7 and I now I'm hoping the wins stop in the Bonus as I'm getting close to a Hand Pay and the taxes that go along with it. No retriggers and I stop at $1128.56.

    Cash out at $1100 and try to find DW to squirrel away $1000 of it. Now, I'm up $1300. Find a Dr. Jackpot and hit a $300 Sapphire and cash out another +$300. On the way out, just HAVE to stop at Buffalo Grand if it's open. A different one is, decide to play $100 for fun & giggles. Hit another couple of bonuses and get up a little over $150 when another Bonus hits. The video can show you what happened:


    Wow, my second ever Bonus Wheel Major - and a nice 4X on top of that, which the video shows was followed up by a "Mini" Bonus and a "Bonus Wheel Mini" at 5X. Played out the customary 8 Free Spins and wound up with this.

    Whew, so, walked out around 1:30AM a little over $2K, with no taxes after planning on just using Free Play. Well, technically the whole run was on Free Play . Now, to stay away the rest of the weekend since the weather forecast is dismal.
