    This has happened to you.

    It has to have happened to you.

    $125 FP today. I put $1 in a LL machine that had a $1000 major jackpot. Bet 50 cents. Bet $2.50. Put it on the penny denom. The 2 cent. The 10 cent. Nada and nada. Not ONE bonus. Meanwhile, there was a Mayan Chief machine not far away and a guy hit almost a full screen of free games and he was betting $2.25 a spin!! It was 530 games, I think. The credit prize was between $159 and $5000. A dream hit. Meanwhile, my FP was up. I made about $12 off of it. I was watching the buy's Mayan Chief bonus and someone sits down at my machine and plays $5 a spin on penny denom and hits the major. Few spins later, hits the free games and walks away with $700 on that.

    I left after that. I just couldn't stand there.

    I'm sorry it didn't work out better for you but at least it was free play and not your bank roll...
    Wishing you better luck next time...

    my golden rule is to never stay in the area of a machine you just put a lot of time, money, and effort into once you're done

    Always said gambling is not for the faint of heart.. I've been sucker punched by slot machines since the early 80's and it always stings. Sorry this happened to you..

    Reminds me of a song that was popular back in the 80's by the Left Banke, and the lyrics sang, " Walk away, Renee, you won't see me follow you back home "....
    Same applies here, looking back and that sight will follow you home and haunt you... We've all been there and done it. Better to brush yourself off , hold your head up, and leave to fight another day.
    Back in the early days of Lightning Link , you had to get up early and go stand in line for an opening. On several occasions I watched people dump tons of money in those machines and walk away broke and disgusted. On one occasion I took over a seat from such an individual and on my 2nd spin I hit the Major for $ 1,000. The gentleman who had been playing this machine was standing nearby talking to a friend and walked over and gave me the finger !!!!!
    He probably still thinks about it and wishes he had walked away and not seen the outcome that had occured moments later...

    Yup, happens to all of us at one time or another. Years ago, I was playing $2 spin on Wicked Winnings and went through $200 like a hot knife thru butter; got pissed, got up to leave and before my feet got 2 feet away a guy sits down on my warmed up seat, does 2 spins and gets not one, not 2 but 3 columns of she devils with the skulls in the front column. I just walked away, I didn't want to know how much it was going to pay out. Walked straight out of the casino before I burst into tears. I was so disgusted, I kept myself away from a casino for almost 6 months after that - I know I should have been happy for him, but at the time I just couldn't. After years of playing, I hope I am a bit more "karma friendly".
