    "ALT" trip - Ameristar & Majestic - 12/26/2012

    I had Another Losing Trip today to both Ameristar and Majestic. Well I gave Ameristar $100 though I played a few new games (one of them is an OLD one but it was new to me).

    On the main floor Ameristar has what I coin as "DOUBLE MONEY BURST" machines. Two sets of 2 X 2 reels and one giant, umm, colossal reel. You can trigger the bonus by either getting one (or both) of the two sets with all the same symbol, the three trigger symbols on the colossal reel, or I assume a combo of both. I played a machine called Neptune's Quest and this was the best I could do on it. The octopi are WILD.




    I then played this Lil Lucy game called Chance In Hell. I liked the title and I also like how the devil dog wild works. Basically if it appears anywhere on reels 2, 3, or 4...it makes that whole reel wild. Took a while for Lil Lucy to show up but I did get her to give me 5 free spins X 2. My best hit there. The Ace is what's hidden in the pic:



    But basically that was a losing session all around.

    Went to Majestic and blew my $7 FP on Life of Luxury. Then I blew $20 on Blooming Wild. I did get the bonus once which only netted me $9, which I promptly lost.

    So then I was going to leave since I was limiting myself to $20 at Majestic but decided to walk around and see if anything may catch my eye. And "Big Sky" wound up being that machine. It was new to Majestic as far as I know. I remembered Deb's huge bonus on it and decided to give it a shot.

    I saw that it was one of those CHOOSE your WINS game. I remembered that feature on Captain Cutthroat (or something) and that game paid terribly. But "Big Sky" seemed different. I did the middle of the road as I plopped $5 in it. Surprisingly my $5 went pretty far though I did get a nice BUCK tease.



    The bonus was a challenge to get but was so worth it. And sigh it made me wish I had played Extreme Payouts since thanks to the locking WILDS I got 5 rows of BUCKS.





    My bonus for BETTER payouts was $35 though had I done EXTREME it would've been $75. But it was cool. I played a little more but didn't want to push my luck even after 3 teasers in a row of getting the MOON in reels 1 and 2. I left Majestic $10 ahead...overall losing trip of $90.

    No December payout effect for me...*LOL*.

    How's Ameristar looking these days? DrV hinted about the main floor being ice cold with WMS machines. I haven't made it out there in awhile and with the weather, i don't think I will anytime soon.

    They still have Clue downstairs?

    Thanks for posting the trip report!

    Yep that's the exact location. I must've passed that machine a few times previous trips but it was the first time I paid attention to it.

    You're welcome Ponzzz. Clue is still there and empty as usual. I did play it for a little bit and left $2 ahead. I got the clock bonus twice but only picked 3 CLUEs each time. They redid the third floor with a bunch of table games. Things seemed tight in general and yeah the King Midas game on the MAIN Floor was cold as ice. But then again I'm not all that lucky these days so I couldn't tell the difference...*LOL*.

    Thanks Dan. Yeah I was there for a bit...I played a lot of old standards besides the ones I took pics of...just nothing really significant save for Big Sky.

    LOL yeah they've hidden the Awesome reels at various areas of the casino. A mini greet would be cool in the 2013.
