I would like to start out this Trip Report by thanking Slotspert for an amazing slotting adventure. It was my first time meeting anyone from the website formally and was a bit nervous seeing how things would translate from the internet world and real life but everything went quite well.
I made the mistake of reading the reviews for San Manuel Indian Casino the night before we hit the road and was shocked to see it was one of the worst rated casinos in the state.
Shortly after arriving and having BOTH our ID's checked we headed to get my players card, did a nice tour through the casino to the non-smoking section and began playing Zorro and MrWoo. It was a nice surprise seeing these were penny machines as the vast majority of machines in the casino were nickel. I played through my $20 instant credit and was able to turn it into a nice $20 voucher. We headed back into the main part of the casino and decided to each put in $20 and play the Newer Pinball sot machine. The bonus was fun and after each putting another $20 in a piece ($80 total we hit a nice bonus that brought us up to a little over what we started with.) We cashed out and decided to check out the upstairs and see what vulture progressive slots were available.
We notice and actually ended up hitting one within 5-8 spins, played here and there and then decided it was about time to eat. I ended up getting Pad Thai(Surprisingly had no flavor) and Orange Chicken. Which did fill me up but gave me a small stomach ache. While Slotspert had a healthier alternative.
I noticed two Black Knight slot machines when we first arrived and wanted to check them out. Slotspert had never played them so I was excited to introduce them to him. Quite quickly he hit the bonus and had all 3 knights locked in for the remaining 3 spins. (Picture coming soon...) I am always happy to see people do well when I first introduce them to a new slot machine.
We ended playing the Hangover which was a bust, and Jaws which we experienced seeing someone getting a $0 Bonus. Didn't much care to play it after that.
With an hour left before we were planning to head out we made it our mission to get a full screen as Slotspert had never had one and wanted to join the club. He actually ended up getting a few, one in a bonus and the other a line hit on a newer game that looked to be a clone of the Black Widow machine but with 4x5 Reels instead of 3x5. (Pictures of this hit coming soon as well.)
Our ride back felt like minutes and the company was awesome. We planned another trip out there in August and I am already looking forward to it. Thank you again for such a great experience, for buying me lunch with your food credit and for driving. Next time we will take the Hummer(As long as it fits in the parking garage.
It was my first time there and would rate the Casino higher than the 2 STARS I had seen the night before online. I liked the variety of slots along with the atmosphere. The food might have been better at the Buffet or another place in the food court. The denominations took a while to get use to but was not a big deal at all after having playing here and there. I look forward to going back in August.
***Slotspert*** Along with the pictures, feel free to add anything I might have left out.
I figured you might have been able to word a few things different. (Pretty sure you know what I am talking about with this one.)
