I had to scratch that itch so I ducked over to Four Winds New Buffalo early Sunday morning. I had some freeplay and I started at DreamCard, promptly got crushed. After getting down 1.5k of the 2k that I brought, I decided that change was in order. I walked by a single line game and was tempted to play the rest of my funds like those guys posting videos on you tube but then I eyed the Double Super Times Pay machine nearby. You know that I hardly ever play that game but sometimes you've just gotta say "what the heck." I hit a couple small 4OAK's when all of a sudden I held a single ace and WHAMMO!

About 15 minutes after getting paid I was dealt trip aces and a 3. Held and then pressed, very surprised. Played for a bit longer, caught a couple nice small 4OAK's and decided to leave.

Spectacular and unusual hits. Nicely done!!

But my bets are not supposed to be bigger than your bets. Can someone check on the ozone hole please?

I don't go to Four Winds regularly anymore so I don't play enough to get higher tier status there. I go there because they have DreamCard and a good overall selection of video poker games, including some newer games. What I do like about Four Winds is that they have remained smoke free after they banned smoking because of Covid. It is like, walking into a breath of fresh air. When they allowed smoking, they did put an air freshener into the air but it isn't as good as breathing smoke free air. I wouldn't be surprised if casino management has received compliments about keeping the casino smoke free.

I didn't bring a larger bankroll with me because my intent was to only play a couple hours and I did that. The funny thing is that when I sat sown to play Double Super Times Pay I almost started at the .05 denomination and I'm glad that I didn't. No regrets though on not starting out at the .25 denomination either.

Good luck to you.

The Nevada solution is always to upgrade the air handling system. When Derek Stevens opened Circa iirc, he bragged about how you could have a smoker next to you and you wouldn't know it. Which is just ridiculous. Their body odor would give them away if nothing else.

Here at the Row, I'm pretty sure every slot in the entire facility allows smoking, the only exception being the bar machines inside Brew Brothers Eldorado, because it's a restaurant. So they had no choice there.

Congratulations. I guess a high enough BR is bound to beat the steepest of odds eventually.
