Bob has hunches about Progressive Slots. At a certain point, rows are about to pop. Some machine in the row will go. It might be because the progressive is at a certain level or whatever. But I can tell when a progressive is about to go. I can't always pick the machine that will win it but I'm usually there when the progressive is won.
Bulletman: How do you factor in luck? Frank: I wish I knew.
B-O-B: I do have hunches about progressives. At a certain point, rows are about to pop. Some machine in the row will go. It might be because the progressive is at a certain level or whatever. But I can tell when a progressive is about to go. I can't always pick the machine that will win it but I'm usually there when the progressive is won.
Frank: Well you've been there and you've won much more than anyone I've ever heard about in such a short period of time. I've heard of people winning two, sometimes three times but never what you've done.
B-O-B: I see the game through. I'll play at a carousel that I know will hit. I'll put in the time. And I always feel that I have a chance for the big one. I'm confident.
Bulletman: Part of her success is a positive attitude. She's upbeat and confident. Even though much of casino gambling is supposedly cut-and-dry, I think what makes her such a winner is this positive attitude.
B-O-B: It's a personality type. I'm not a sore gambler. Win or lose, I have a good time. I don't complain. I'm happy to be in the game. Win or lose. You can't be negative. There's always that luck factor and you waste your time cursing your luck if you are losing. Why play if playing makes you miserable? I'm not afraid of losing and I don't fear losing. I'm going to go bang it out. When I say goodbye to Bulletman, I say to him: "I'm going to go bang it out." And I mean it. I go into the game with a determination that I'm going to win. You actually have to have physical stamina to play the way I do. I'd give up all the comp if I could have someone behind me massaging me. That's so much better than the drinks lady who comes by.
I'm probably the only person who loses weight when I go to a casino. I don't eat much, I don't drink much. I'm like a fighter. I have to be in form. A good massage therapist rubbing my shoulders when I play would be heaven. So I don't go in there worrying about losing my money. I go in expecting to win. I'm going to bang it out.
Frank: What about the actual playing of the hands?
B-O-B: I'm a big player. I go for the big win.
Bulletman: She has a look. We call it the original look. It's the look she had when she won her first jackpot. I could be playing craps [Bulletman's game is craps] and I'll see her coming from across the casino and she'll have that look. She'll be holding in her hand a ticket that tells you how much you've won. I know that look. She'll start giggling. One day she won two progressive jackpots a couple of hours apart. She came up to me and she looked happy but different. Then she showed me how much she had just won. It was flabbergasting.
B-O-B: I tend to discard weaker hands, even payable ones. A lot of people play for the little wins. I go for the bigger ones. I'll discard four cards and just keep a joker because I'm going for five of a kind.
Frank: Why Video Poker and not the table games?
B-O-B: Because there's no rivalry at the machines. We're like one family. I'll sometimes give advice on how to play a certain hand. People give me advice. It's all very friendly. I don't find that at the tables. If I were going to play table games, I'd play craps. But at the machines I notice that people don't take the game as seriously as do the table-game players. There the players can be downright nasty when they're losing. When you win at the machines, even if some people might get jealous, they congratulate you. We exchange tales of what happened last trip, or yesterday. But getting back to strategy. Most people play conservatively. I tend not to go for straights. I'd rather discard that potential straight and go for a better hand. That might be one of the reasons I've won so many jackpots.
Throwing away an entire hand, I've been dealt straight flushes, four of a kind, five of a kind. So I'm not afraid to take that chance. I'll rarely throw away a pair. The only time I throw a pair away is usually for the straight flush.Share on:
