Wheel of Fortune

When Jiggsblog went to Vegas about a month ago, Miss Kendra met us there and, among many other things, informed us the fact that you can't loose on the Wheel of Fortune slot machines.

Tasty then promptly tried to test the theory and ended up winning.

Slappy then tested the theory on another trip he made to a casino but lost.

This weekend, I was in Lake Tahoe and pretty much breaking even in both Craps and Blackjack, so I decided to break the streak with a slot machine. I started with one of the regular put-your-money-in-pull-the-handle-and watch-the-wheels-spin machine. After loosing 70% of what I put in, I decided to switch machines. Now, keep in mind I loathe the Wheel of Fortune machines because I hate the noise they make. But, it was there, and this little voice that sounded a lot like Miss K's popped into my head reminding me that they never loose. So I put my money in.

In 4 pulls I hit two jackpots and made up all the money I had lost in the State of Nevada since April.

So it looks like we now have 2 points for her theory and one against.

It's like I've been saying, she's a genius.

thats good information to know. hopefully they have that machine in atlantic city or dover delaware.

slappy said...

Yeah, they'll have it in AC. AC is ghetto, but marginally better than Reno, so they'll have it.

I think what we're really proving is that I should stay away from games of chance.

how about i give you 2 hundred dollars and you make it into 20K and i'll give you 6K of that. I need to pay off my car!

miss kendra said...

i told you.

i am infallible. it's really too bad that doesn't translate to employment, or even just unimaginable riches.

miss kendra said...

also, i'm pretty sure slappy just did it wrong.

and that it's quite possible to loose on the wheel of fortune machines, but to lose is unheard of.

Nick: Yep, she sho' is.

Carl: I didn't know you could gamble in Dover. Someone should tell Mike Myers.

Slappy: I still think you would do well at BlackJack.

Amera: I'll take your $200 but I make no guarentees.

Miss K: You could offer to take people's money and "invest" it for them, and then take a cut. I think Amera would be willing to be your first client.

Miss K: Slappy probably did it wrong. Maybe he didn't play the max coins. And damn you for pointing out my inability to distinguish lose and loose. Out of honor, I will not edit the post, and let me inability to misspell be forever shown here.

Booty, I'm too much of a poker player. I can't remember that far into the shoe.

miss kendra said...

someone's in a shoe?

jiggs said...

old mother hubbard was quite a poker player

jiggs said...

and additionally since she lived in the shoe, she was also a good blackjack player

Did you try Journey's "Wheel in the Sky" slot machine?

slappy said...

Except the jackpot for Wheel in the Sky is that you spend the rest of the day hanging out with Journey

Nick said...

The thing about that wheel in the sky is that it keeps on turning.
