I have always liked the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas so was pretty excited about going to Golden Nugget Laughlin. The outside is everything I expected with breathtaking lights that stole the show in the night sky. The inside ummm not as glamorous as one might expect, a bit more fitting for a nature theme instead of all that glitters is gold look.
After walking up and down the boardwalk my friend and I were getting hungry and decided to have dinner here. Both of us loving seafood chose Bubba Gump restaurant themed after the Forest Gump movie. The servers come to your table and pick your brain on trivia questions from the movie which was fun.
The mojitos were excellent but the food was HORRIBLE! I ordered the shrimp trio which was served in three stainless steel cones. The tasteless shrimp was laid on top of French fries which means an overload of fries times 3!
Anxious to get out on the Casino floor we paid the bill, wished each other well and went on our separate ways. Something about Sexy and the City Slot caught my eye. It has been quite a while since I played this back home and tried to ignore the urge to sit down and play it. I passed it up, looked around the casino and ended up right back at it.
Since I was way up in winnings I decided to bet $6.00 a spin, something I rarely do. The Slot is divided into four screens offering four games per spin. Three Pink Hearts will trigger the Bonus feature. What is cool about this is it’s possible to trigger up to four Bonus games.
The Bonus game is determined by the spin the wheel that features several different options. I got the Shoe Bonus with an option to pick one of the shoe boxes each revealing a different prize value. During the Free Spins feature your shoes are sticky and the more matches you get, the greater the prize.
I won a sweet $286 and was about to cash-out at $250 when a few spins later I landed the Shoe Bonus again and won $301.87! I ended up cashing out $600 and was happier than Imelda Marcos!
As I strolled over to other Casinos the rest of the evening I played on Golden Nugget’s cash win. It’s the least they could do after that not so great dinner we had!
