When I was a booth cashier at Harveys, one of my friends told me to play this machine as I was going home after work. I put 6 dollar tokens in in and hit it for $1800. Sure that history would repeat itself I put my whole paycheck in the next week and got nothing but a sickness in my soul, pretty much cured me of slots.

In over 35 years of casino gambling, that's the only large slot win I ever had.

Once I had a REALLY good afternoon. After hitting about 6 or 7 royals on a 5 play quarter machine, I put $100 in a $10 machine and it dealt me a royal for a little over 12k. Left there with around $17,000. I was at the Peppermill on Virginia. What a day!

That is exactly where I lost my money, however they had a really nice restaurant which made up for it.

If truth be told, the player's big wins are most likely to never cover the losses they incurred over the years. Slots are one of the worst odds in the Casino - it's highly slanted towards the house. People never brag about their losses, only the most they ever won.
