Back in 2014 I took a trip to the Horseshoe in Tunica, MS. Loved it! I’ll write some other posts as to why. For now, just a quick rundown on this particular win.
After previously getting sucked into Aruze Gaming’s “The Gold” and “Crystal” slot machines, I decided to try their more straight forward “Cherry Chance Hot Seven Premium”. At 3 bucks per spin, I was going a little beyond my normal comfort zone. Since the slots are somewhat looser in Tunica than I have experienced elsewhere, the higher spin price didn’t necessarily translate into “more money lost quicker”. LOL. In fact, with the way I understand Aruze games, max betting actually increases win percentage. This on top of the fact it was a dollar machine which typically has better odds than penny, nickel, and quarter slots.
All that to say, I hadn’t sat at the game for more than 5 minutes when this beauty popped up on the screen. Five straight sevens and a $1000 payout!
Keep it up Aruze. I could play your games with all their funky special effects all day. Well, or as long as this thousand will last me. 🙂
Completely off topic, but I’ll just mention a feature of the Horseshoe slot machines that I really like. Rather than waiting on a server to come around to take a drink order and then waiting some more for them to return with your drink, you can order your drink right on the slot machine! There is a very simple user interface that lets you select between beer, wine, liquor, and non-alchoholic beverages. The selection isn’t quite as good as in the Diamond Lounge, but it certainly is a convenience I haven’t experienced elsewhere in my travels. If you know of other casinos that offer the same functionality, let me know in the comments!
