    Well now.... how did THAT happen??

    Hello everyone!!! How is your summer going? My husband went on his yearly trip to Alaska to bring home our winter supply of wild caught salmon. That leaves me with a lot of free time on my hands! Since my last huge win on The Price is Right slot, I have done very well at my local casino. I have been able to walk out of the casino each time with over $1,000.00 ahead. Now.... yesterday, I went to the casino in the AM. In the first hour, I turned $50.00 into $500.00. I put that tito into a machine I never play. The screen told me I needed to choose a bet amount... pennies, nickels, dimes, or dollars. When I touched the 1 cent option, nothing happened. It seemed the screen was not functioning. I touched it again, and again... nothing. I INADVERTENTLY touched the $2.50 BET button, and the screen changed into the game... AND it PLAYED.... I got a bonus on that inadvertent touch!! Now.... I was NOT trying to play the game, just trying to get the machine to change to penny betting. The name of the slot is Dragon's Return Money Galaxy. I looked at the screen.... OMG.... it was on nickels.... and I had just bet $12.50!!!!! First bonus spin.... it landed a 2000, a 5000, and a few "lesser" amounts, and the dragon. I did not fill up the screen, but that bonus totaled around $850. The next spin.... got another of those... brought the total up to $1,125.00. The NEXT spin.... brought my total to $1,262.00. HANDPAY!!!! I sat there dumbfounded... inadvertent huge wagers almost NEVER yield anything but disappointment.... but not this time!!!! I happy danced right there, got paid, ran a few hundred into other machines, and went home with $1,300.00 more than I went with. Gosh... how I wish every visit to the casino was like the last 4 have been for me!! I hope all of you are happy, healthy, and winners too!!!

    I'm absolutely thrilled for you Steph. I would have needed the Paddles if I saw I'd bet $ 12.50.

    Hope Hubby fills up the freezer ...

    Hi Bettin Man..... I DID have a moment of PANIC!!! When I realized that I had a bonus, AND it was on max bet nickels, I was ok with it. I usually bet around $1.00 at most.... sometimes $1.50 if I am playing on the casino's money. In the past when I have mistakenly bet more than I thought I was, it has never yielded anything more than a whimper of realization that I just wasted X amount of money. I gotta say... that after I got over the shock of seeing that $12.50 bet ( the bet amount box said 250.... and underneath in small print it said $12.50. ) I was excited to see what the bonus would bring. Hubs is expected home on Monday... said he is bringing 100 pounds of fish home!! I am a winner on two fronts!!! Hey... I hope you are healing well.....

    Hubby came home today..... with over 100 pounds of wild caught salmon. He went fishing early this AM before he caught his plane home.... so tomorrow we will have a nice FRESH "just caught" salmon dinner. I can't WAIT..... there is nothing better than fresh salmon. If you lived closer, I would not only invite you over for dinner, I would give you a few fillets to make at your home!!
