I typically catch 6 or more sawhite sturgeon during the fall king salmon run. Usual size is four to seven footers. These bad boys can really put the hurt on my salmon gear.
You should make a trip to Washington or Oregon and book a guide. You could also go out with my son as he is as good S most guides and our new Duckworth is nice
Very nice luck you're having on Quest for Riches, wtg Salmoncatcher, congratulations!
I love Fan Dancer but rarely get to play it because the casino that has the game is over 2 hrs. away. What a dream hit. Did you happen to count what number of bonus spin it was? Just imagine if you had picked 10 free spins and got 4X 8X. Well I don't know exactly what the multipliers are for 10 games, but I do remember selecting the one where you get 50X, but had no luck. What a fantastic hit. Hope I get to experience it once in my lifetime. Thanks for the picture!
Foamy maybe someday you can come out. We are very lucky to have such good fishing so close by.
Stress...I always pick 15 free spins. You will get a nice win soon have faith...the salmoncatcher
Stress...I checked my pics and I did not have any indication about the spin number where the big win occurred...salmoncatcher
Maybe its an Oregon state law.
I don't think so. The handpay amount varies from casino to casino. As recently as 4 years ago, Chinook Winds was doing handpays (no paperwork, though) on amounts lower than the federal requirement of $1200 ($720 for certain!), while at Spirit Mountain, I hit $960 on a 12x machine & was able to cash the ticket out & run it through the cashout kiosk with no problems. Less than a year ago, I hit $1145 at Spirit Mountain & again just cashed the TITO out.
Zumzum and other...
Let me clarify the handpay issue. Please note that the greater than $500 limit that triggers a handpay from a slot attendant only applies to a bonus outcome or the result of a single spin winning amount. For example lets say you are getting very nice line hit wins or bonus wins just under the $500 limit, you can continue to play without triggering a handpay despite a slot balance of over $500 on your machine. Case in point I was winning almost every spin on Fan Dancer one session and I was able to get my slot balance over $1000. If you cash this out and recieve a ticket for lets say $1100 you can either give this to a cashier or feed the ticket into the automated payout machines. No tip or handpay is required provided no single line hit or single bonus exceeded the $500 limit.
That said I have continued to win on some machines and reached the $1200 limit. This is another key total. Lets say you have a slot balance at $900 and you win a bonus or line hit of $400, the slot machine will print the $400 win ticket and will leave your machine at $900. They set the slot machines up that way to ensure the player does not reach the $1200 federally reported win that will trigger reporting of the win for tax purposes.
I thought this further explaination might be helpful to forum members...
Best of Luck to all...the salmoncatcher
Okay, I get that, but it is still casino-specific, not the entire state. Chinook Winds used to do that, but doesn't now. Spirit Mountain has not done it in the time I've gone there.
