    I guess an apology was expected, none given !!

    Grandaughter getting married on Friday which has altered my weekly schedule on all aspects. Normal work schedule is Monday,Wednesday, and Friday, with casino day always Thursday.
    This week working Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, so had to change casino visit to Wednesday late afternoon, around 4:00 PM.. I'm always a 5:00 am visitor on Thursdays, and this really felt out of place, and disorienting, as I'm not used to so many people playing at once and the noise and chaos that goes with it.
    Mission was to use my free play and get out as I was now at the mercy of what machines were left to play on, as opposed to my early morning visits were the entire casino was my playground to choose from.
    As luck had it, a Timber Wolf Deluxe opened up as I was approaching it and in short order I turned my free play in to real earned cash + a few extra bucks, and took a TITO.
    Had told my wife I'd be home around 7:30 and would bring dinner home with me, so I had a couple more hours to kill.
    No empty seats anywhere, and drifted around for a good 20 minutes or so trying to decide my next move. A new bank of Lightning Links caught my eye, all of which were being played, but decided to wait it out for an opening. Couldn't stop staring at a Heart Throb version in the center of 3 across, with a $ 1,000 MAJOR being displayed . Closer observation showed the lady playing it was down to $ 16.00 on .50 bets so I rode it out.
    Saw she was going through the motions of leaving and I stood behind her waiting. Turned out her friend on the machine to the right was leaving and she just slid over 1 seat to the right.
    Put in my TITO for $ 46.50, playing $ .50 x 2 , as usual, and on my 4 th spin, I got the 6 Hearts, and one of them was Fluorescent Green, and said MAJOR on it, for $ 1,000 !!!!
    I'm thrilled, as this was my 7th Major win, and the biggest.. Like a cold North Wind, the woman to my right who had just vacated this seat, starts unloading on me, and telling how rightfully this should have been her win and that she had primed the machine for me to hit it.
    The total was showing $ 1,164, too close to a hand pay, so I cashed out and stuck the TITO in my pocket, but kept playing, knowing I was going home a winner. She kept on moaning about " why don't you give someone else a chance to win ", and I ignored her.
    Maybe 10-12 minutes later I got another Heart Round with a MINOR and 3 MINIS, and 3 more tries for $ 192.00, and cashed out.
    Still wanted to play but couldn't take her whining any longer. She wasn't looking at me any more so I leaned over and said, " You can have your machine back now, GOOD LUCK " !!!

    Wishing all of you a " MAJOR " real soon.

    Well, great job...once again!! I swear, I'm coming up there one day to try my luck! Sorry, the lady was being a pain, but as a frustrated gambler myself I also kind of get it.

    Anyway, have fun at the wedding and please post some pics, we would love to see them!!

    My Turn,

    If you asked my fellow players they would tell you that hardly anyone wins here as well.. In another thread running right now I discourage anyone to come from Pittsburgh thinking the grass is greener over here.

    I have been very fortunate, and extremely lucky, as of late, but know all too well this is a cycle that won't last .

    I've recently had some last second " Hail Mary's " which have brought me back from significant losses and allowed me to fully recover and play intact another day, and truly understand that you can only go to the well so many times before it runs dry.

    Thanks to the MAJOR for adding some considerable extra volume to that wedding envelope tomorrow...

    Sometimes I think you don't want me to come up there and win all the jackpots!! Just kidding. But truth is nothing much is happening here in Maryland. Plus I think it might be fun to try a different casino.

    Anyway, again have fun tomorrow.... your granddaughter is a very luck girl to have a grandfather like you!

    You showed remarkable restraint to an idiot who doesn't know how slots work.
    I bet you I can stop gambling!

    Big Congrats Bettn Man!! .. Awesome!!
    Without a doubt you have more patience than me...
    I would've yelled "Do yourself a favor and mind your own business before I get you thrown out of Here"!!
    I just can't tolerate that level of ignorance!...

    Great wins! Our Lightning Links at Rivers near Chicago are not nearly as generous.
    Seldom see the progressives show up..
