TheSouthern California Gaming GuideReader’s Choice Best Slots™include casino player/readers’ favorite slots plus their favorite slot apps and PC slot games. Junger's book, which detailed the 1991 loss of the fishing vessel Andrea Gail and its crew during a storm, and the movie based upon the book helped turn Gloucester into a particularly macabre sort of tourist attraction. It understates the matter to say that, historically, fishing is Gloucester's signature industry.

Without much ado, Wilkins loaded his fishing boat on a trailer and drove 250 miles up the coast to Gloucester. "I'm into extreme everything, and I wanted to go up against the best," he explains. The $2 bettors hammer the meter up so high that when I come in behind them I'm getting 10%, 12%, even 15% edges. At 1500+ games per hour, even though the bet is just 50 cents, I have a huge hourly rate on these plays. Wonder 4, at least for now, has the same potential. It will all come out in the wash as my sample space grows.

Playtime Casino Kelowna has over 450 slot machines ranging from 1¢ to $1.00, interactive video screens with exciting bonus games, as well as your classic stepper reels. Plus, we have recently welcomed 70 new popular games to our slot floor.

Gloucester residents often start fishing as children, and it's assumed that when they come of age, they'll join the family trade. "I grew up doing this," local fisherman Paul Hebert explains.

Like I suspected, the house configuration on the game matters. All machines are coinless and use ticket-in or bill-in/ticket-out technology. Slot tickets can be redeemed at the cashier, or one of our many cash-dispensing machines located throughout the gaming floor. Machines only accept Canadian bills, so if you need to exchange your foreign currency, our cashiers will be happy to do that for you.

Race to Win Progressive

As recently as the mid-1990s, Italian was the only language spoken on about a tenth of vessels in the local fishing fleet. For the purpose of this promotion, a “high hand” means any full house, four-of-a-kind or any straight flush in which both of the player’s hole cards play. I'm familiar with keno progressives in Montana where the minimum bet to qualify for the meter is just 50 cents but you can bet up to $2. The payscale multiplies out but the meter doesn't.

Today, the fishing industry is worth about $200 million to Gloucester, including the ripple effect of businesses that benefit from fishing. Even so, the last 20 years have been tough on the city. Gloucester fishermen brought in 88 million pounds of fish in 2010, the most recent year for which numbers are available. The local fleet of 100 boats is about half the size it was in 2000, and there was a 20 percent drop-off between 2003 and 2008 alone. Many of the fresh fish-processing facilities that used to provide jobs have closed. With fewer opportunities to attract young workers, the average fishing permit holder in 2008 was 51 years old, and crew members are often that age or older.

A minimum of five players must be seated and dealt in at the beginning of the hand in order for it to qualify for any “Really Wicked Weekdays” promotion. What needs to be determined is does increased bets equal better odds on the jackpots. No clue but I am sure there is never an advantage on the overall 2-5k jackpot and even with an individual one at over $400 I’m not sure there is an advantage. Being so popular I would assume they are on the lower or lowest settings and without knowledge otherwise, you should play assuming that.

The promise of such hefty jackpots obscures the fact that fishing is a hard and not especially profitable way to make a living. The median household income in Gloucester is $60,506, slightly below the median Massachusetts income of $64,509. On the other hand, just 7.8 percent of residents live below the poverty line, fewer than the statewide average of 10.5 percent and significantly below the U.S. figure of 15.1 percent. In part, that's because Gloucester fishermen tend to be jacks of all trades, who fix cars or do electrical work to augment their income from the sea.

I've gotten the game specific progressives a few times but never the grand. The only grand win I ever saw personally the fellow was betting $8 and hitting the button like a crazy person. The game progressives I've won have all been in the $200 some to low $300 range. Any time I've played one where it's been higher - like mid-$300s - I've never hit it and it always seems like the machine isn't paying as well on regular wins. I don't think I've ever seen one as high as $400.

It looks like pkspins has a lot of experience playing this game. That's why I'm curious as to her bet size in relation to the max bet. I don't mind dropping a little money to determine if there is a possible edge to be gained. I'll put in another session this evening and add to the sample space.

It's whether or not those smaller jackpots create an edge. I've never seen the Wonder 4 type in mickey's pictures. I'm not an AP - I just go to play a while for entertainment - but these are pretty good for playing a while and leaving with a small profit or at worst not losing too much while running up a lot of coin in.

If any player, whether directly or indirectly involved in the hand, passes information or instructs another on how to act or reveals his/her hand to other players, the high hand will be disqualified. In wheel mode I caught the Free Games 24 times and the Super Free Games 3 times. If no qualifying hand has been made during the last period in a day, then the promotion will continue for an additional 30 minute period. If no qualifying hand is made in this additional period, the promotion will continue for as many 30 minute periods are required for the prize to be won.

Some Aristocrat slots can give nice huge wins but it's a lot of nothing in between, whereas at least the ones or some of the ones on Jackpots or Wonder Wheel spread the wins out. I don't think they're a play in the AP sense for the progressives. I'm not an AP but based on the stuff I read here. They aren't must hits and my experience is that they hit all over the place. I never chase them - I might pick what games I'm playing based on how high one or the other is, and if I get it great. I think the casino matters and the bet level.

Management will verify the eligibility of all qualifying hands before any prizes are awarded. There will be no recourse if any player’s cards are mucked before a designated staff member was able to verify the hands and the community cards. Playground Poker Club management or staff will not be permitted to reconstruct the hands in any way. Players must play their hands independently. Any discussion of the prize during the playing of the hand may void qualification for this promotion.

As for the regular bonus, unless you get the super bonus, your winnings wont even match your bet at times. And as someone posted above, any slot that pays $20K on a $4 bet bonus is holding a lot of players money to get to that point. Hundreds of exciting slot machines ranging from 1¢ to $1.00, including the latest titles as well as your favourite classic reels. Hundreds of exciting slot machines ranging from 1¢ to $1.00’s, including the latest titles as well as your classic reels. I do not know the base games on that one so I am not sure how they pay. I'm not sure I'd like to play that one because of the base games.

The version that has Wicked Winnings 2 and Buffalo Deluxe on it - the bet amounts are the same regardless of what games you pick. The Wicked Wheel Bonus is triggered by three Wicked Wheel symbols scattered on reels 3, 4, and 5. Players can win random multipliers and nudges from Panda for larger prizes if he's not satisfied.

Rather, say that were it not for fishing, there might not be a Gloucester at all. Gloucester was founded back in the early 1600s, when the English discovered that there were abundant supplies of Atlantic cod offshore. The Pilgrims showed up and began building racks to dry the fish. In the 1800s, Gloucester's fishermen prospered by salting their catch and then peddling it to the Dutch colony of Surinam, where it was used to feed African slaves, in trade for molasses that was used to make rum. Over the next several centuries, they were joined by waves of immigrants from Italy and Portugal, all eager to find a place to make their living off the sea.

It seems they almost always hit in the 300s, so if that is about the 12% mark, then a minor in the 600s would be 24 or 25% of the return... Add that to the 75% returned in the base game and I'm still just under 100%. The main one is Little Red, who has certainly grown up to be a fearsome warrior! Join her on an exciting adventure full of unexpected twists, and some fantastic features that are capable of generating solid payouts.
