Or how I learned to love penny machines.
Yesterday some of us took a ride to Atlantic City. It was a long ride because a tractor trailer had overturned on the Parkway. We heard about this because several people on the bus were able to check conditions on their cell phones, which was very helpful. There's nothing worse than being stuck in traffic and not knowing why. But I digress.
I have always said that I won't play the penny slots because I don't understand the winning combinations. Sometimes it seems that what wins one time, doesn't the second time. I went first to the quarter machines, using the bonus that the casino gave us. That money went very quickly.
Then, I thought I'd try the penny machines. After all, so many people seem to win on them. I sat down at the first one, played 20 lines and played three credits. This amounted to only 60 cents. After a while I started winning, then I got bonus free spins and the pennies began mounting up. All of a sudden I had 6950 pennies or $69.50. Time to cash out and put the coupon in my purse. Then I started all over.
Soon there were many more free spins and the pennies added up, this time to 13840 or $138.40. Time to cash out again. This went on for most of the day and I wound up winning $200.00. All on pennies.
I still don't understand the machines, or how I win, but I like it. Penny machines are my new best friends.
