This last casino trip of mine tested my patience. The slot gods did not smile on me when I felt a big winner.
The first night of three I was playing the Bier Haus where you can play 75 min vs 50 min and Heidi opens the wild beer taps ever so often. While not hitting the bonus and playing 75 credits (penny machine) I hit a full screen of wilds and thought this should be hand pay time. Nope, the payout was less than $200.

The next night I played the same machine at 75 cents and got so may Heidi's that I was awarded 35 free games. The take on that was $93.

The morning we left my wife and I played Buffalo Gold at 150 pennies a spin. It is almost impossible to get on that slot during the day (but it was open at 0500) and I hit the bonus (three wheels). The spin gave me 15 free games and I retriggered for 5 more. Final take was $11.16 and that included the scatter win. I saw one wild the whole 20 spins. We headed for the car then.

I was fortunate in 25 cent VP as I hit 4 deuces on DW twice (once dealt) for $500.

Ended up down for the trip about $450 while the wife won $365. The last Buffalo experience made me wonder why I ever play slots.

Anyone out there doing worse than me?
