i'm new to the forum but wanted to post about my amazing win last weekend because i'm overjoyed and thought you would enjoy the story too
so, a little background. my slot "strategy" is that i usually bet low. always the maximum lines, but usually just x1 or x2. if i have a good hit, i'll randomly up my bet to a x5 or a max bet here and there, but i don't consistently do it because my bankroll is pretty low.
so, i put $20 into the china mystery machine, and within the first few spins at x1, i got a decent hit of $10, which brought me to just under $30. so that's when i decided i'd do ONE max bet. i pressed the button and bam! triggered a bonus for 15 free spins. (i had a 5 bonus symbols). i couldn't believe it... triggering the bonus on max. that NEVER happens to me...
first ten or so spins are a complete disappointment. i didnt hit anything at all. and that's when it happened... a FULL SCREEN of those yellow/red flag symbols. i was so excited! that spin was worth $6000! i ended my bonus with my first ever handpay of $6025! and it's been just over a week and i'm still smiling ear to ear thinking about it.
unfortunately, i didn't get a photo of the full screen of symbols since i had a crowd of people surrounding me... but i managed to get one of the end result and i will ask my hubby to post it at some point this weekend
also, cute end to my story... when it happened, i called hubby and told him to come find me and that i'd just lost my bankroll and wanted to borrow a $20. you should have seen his face when he came walking over and saw that i'd won a jackpot.
anyway, thanks for reading and wishing you all good luck, too
