Dotty's Review

This Time the Joke Was on Me

So ok I admit it, for a quick fix I love to go to the Casino Internet cafes! It is an in-out kinda experience and I don’t have to fight the crowds, parking and it is just a hop, skip and jump from where I live.

I have noticed a lot of people have caught on to the convenience and it is harder these days to find a seat open. Well, that is considering there is only 5 machines to begin with!

I went to Starbucks to grab a cup of coffee which sits on the outer skirts of a small strip mall and without any other intentions at all i am beckoned across the parking lot for fun and games! How I could I resist the charms of sweet Dotty?

It is only half past 8am and the place has only opened their doors 15 minutes ago. There was already one woman sitting and playing Slots who was quite friendly and said “hello, looks like you had the same idea as me this early in the morn”. I smiled and was going to say – no not really it just sort of snuck up on me, but instead said “yes we both did”.

Most customers here play Slots, in fact it is the vast majority and for all the times I have been here it is a rare moment I see anyone play Video Poker.

As I am playing IGT Super Double Bonus Poker I notice this friendly woman just two seats away from me is having a full-fledged conversation……….to herself. I mean a non-stop chatter. I couldn’t make out if she was talking to the machine or talking to an imaginary friend she might have brought with her. Nevertheless, she was sweet and mumbled low enough that it was not much of a distraction.

I switched my game to Joker Poker after already putting $40 bucks in and it was this game that began to bring me some luck. Hitting some decent 4 of a kinds and praying to the Poker Gods for the big one……5 of a kind…I waited in heart pounding anticipation.

Then it happened when I least expected it. Not when I was holding three or even 4 of a kind, but a pair! Holding the Joker and one King I hit the draw button and HALLELUJAH………..5 KINGS!

Sitting pretty with $750 dollars in my machine when just an hour ago was sitting at a drive-thru waiting for my coffee, to say the least I was one happy camper!

I cashed out a $700 and when on my merry way straight home!


“How I could I resist the charms of sweet Dotty?”

  • once playing joker poker, ten credits, $1 per credit at the local casino - twin river in ri - i was up and down up and down.... and then the blessed 5 of a kind hit... for 8 grand! i never seen anything quite like it
  • i play at a local kiosk and best i have gotten is 4 of a kind. would love to play those american slots and video pokers. the winning potential is far better than here in scandinavia.
  • Nice one Lips! I have been playing Joker poker more lately when I play single hand video poker. (none of the 3-hand games have joker poker on them at the casino I go to.) I have gotten 5 of a kind several times and it is very exciting. But if the joker is scarce it can be very expensive. Especially on the games where you need 2 pair to win. Of course I prefer the Kings or better, but sometimes the machine is 2 pair to win. Anyhow congrats to you! And smart that you left with your winnings and didn't give it all back. :)
  • Total tangent above, sorry about that... My Dad gambled & always swore by Video Poker. My biggest Jackpot was on Video Poker. My preferred game among friends is Poker. When I go to the casino, 80% of my gaming is BlackJack. There is no method to my madness! I don't know why I don't play more video poker? Anyhow... seeing your win above is encouraging me to start playing more & find out if Dad was right about this all along, too?! Gosh, don't you hate that, though? Having to admit you should have listened to your parents... oh it's the worst! :) Thanks for sharing, Lips. Your detailed experiences are always easy to relate to! :)
