My Favorite Land Casino Game - What's Yours?

3 replies • Last post

Hello Everyone,

I recently visited a land casino, and I discovered a new (old) game that I enjoyed playing. It is called Pompeii, and there was a row of them doing fairly well so I tried my hand at it and did okay. It's fun, because when you go to the bonus and have a big win it shakes. I hit five dolphins in a row (no volcano with it unfortunately) and hit 100 dollars, which was fun. I don't know how I missed this machine all these years. One woman had her machine over 300 dollars on a 1.25, but you can also bet 50 and 25 cents.

Here's those dolphins with a volcano, but he wasn't betting as much, but so what, it's great fun!

My best friend got me hooked on The Wicked Winnings, and she has won many a jackpot on this machine. Trouble is, that was a few years back and since then they have tightened them up everywhere. The game can be frustrating, because it likes to tease (as many do) so those ladies can be truly wicked. lol But the potential to hit big is there on a lower bet even, which is what keeps her playing, and me trying now and again. When you play the power play for 50 cents and over you can win the bonus round by getting flames on the first and last reel. Also, on power play the ladies will respin for another chance. You want to get something good with those ladies, especially ravens.

One morning, years ago, I sat at one and played just 25 cents cuz I would only get a few dollars on the bonus and respins anyway, and I worked it up over to 300 dollars (quite a while back now) but it is more fun to play 50 cents in case you get those ladies and birds! See the potential. I am hooked! lol

Ah now I see it is the same Pompeii as we have in the free games section here. It is made by Aristocrat, and Australian company, and I see it all the time in pubs and clubs here. It is very popular.

I love table games at the live casino, and my favourite is blackjack. I find that more of a real live casino experience, sitting with my friends and the other players, having a chat with each other and the dealer and having a good time together. I don't really get the same experience playing a slot which can be a fairly solitary experience unless you're sitting next to a friend I guess.

Slots are really relaxing to me for some reason. I have played Texas Hold Em when I have stayed two nights at casinos cuz I wanted to pass some time for one set fee instead of donating to slots, lol. I didn't play blackjack this time, either, but I have in the past.

I sat by a man who said they were playing on a bank roll his wife had won on those Wickeds. She hit ladies and birds for 6,000 dollars! I almost would rather NOT have a hand pay, though, because they take so much out of that, but for 6,000 it would be worth it.

I wish the Wicked Winnings were available online, but maybe I am really LUCKY they are NOT! Tongue

Yes getting taxed on gambling winnings is harsh. It is all tax free here for most people unless you're a professional gambler, but even so those guys can always claim their losses against their winnings.
