Mother’s Day Jackpot
I couldn’t think of a better way to honor my mom on Mother’s Day than to head to the Casino! After all it was her that introduced me to Video Poker. It has been 4 years since she passed and there is not a day that goes by where I don’t think about her or am reminded of her in some way.
I got a fantastic promo deal at Majestic Star Casino in Gary, Indiana. After signing up for a player’s card a couple months ago, they sent me one of the best promotional offers I ever got as a new member. Throughout the month of May I get $200 in FREE CASH every 4 days! That is right every four days my card is replenished with 200 bucks and I don’t have to play a penny of my own money for it to activate. I simply enter my pin number right at the machine, access promo offer and the cash is instantly credited.
I also received a $75 credit at their Steakhouse, 2 Free buffets and a Free 2 night stay at their hotel. I mean this was one bundle of fantastic offers that I just couldn’t ignore! About 30 minutes or so outside of Chicago, Majestic Casino sits right on Lake Michigan in a riverboat that is divided by two sides of which basically mirror each other.
The Video Poker is on the second floor and there is one particular machine that I LOVE! It is the Super Triple Play Draw Poker with multiple games. The Super Double Draw Poker it the largest payout amounts with kickers for four Aces, J – K four of a kind and four of a kind 2, 3, and 4.
I played 5 cent poker, 5 lines so that my Free money would last a longer time. The very first hand I played I got 4 Kings with a Queen kicker for 1,600 credits. It was a perfect way to start. By the time I made my 1x play-through I still had $200 left and could have walked out $200 ahead, but noooooo of course I didn’t do that!
It wasn’t going so well after that so I decide to drop $200 of my own money in the machine. I was down to my last $100 when I decided to up my bet to the ten cent coin value. Oh, Oh, Oh and I am so glad i did! I got dealt 4 aces on a 5 line game! I hoped with all my might I would get kickers on the draw and on the next four hands I did exactly that. J/Q/K kicker pays 3,200 credits and 2/3/4 kicker pays 4,000 credits.
My machine locked with those beautiful words splashed across my screen “CALL ATTENDENT”. I got a hand pay of $1,600 ending up with a profit of $1,430 at the end of the day. Thank mom I can’t help but think you had a hand in that hand!
