This Is What 97,500 Pennies Looks Like

VT reader Peter recently took home 97,500 pennies from the Luxor on one of their Time Machine slots and nabbed this photo:

Luxor Timemachine Jackpot

He added this sweet little story as well...

Here is my only big win so far. I was staying at the Luxor and woke up at 5am (used to getting up at 6am NY time) and went downstairs to kill some time while my wife slept in. Started jumping between penny slots just trying to kill time. Put $20 in the Time Machine slot machine and had no luck at all. I was playing minimum bets and wasn't hitting anything, so I decided with $4 left to go for a max bet of $3. The reels kept spinning and I thought the machine was malfunctioning, then a robot came out and turned 4 of the 5 reels wild. I still remember my wife's double take when I woke her up with the $975 ticket in hand. Not a huge win but a wonderful memory.

If I walked in the room with a $1000 slot win, there is a good chance I might get a beej.

That's the thing about penny machines. They can suck a $20 bill in mere moments, but if you hit a bonus round just right, you can win a nice chunk of change. This is why they are so popular with casinos since folks don't always realize that per spin they're betting more than they would on most nickel and quarter machines and $20 can be gone in several spins.

Being not a slot player, these video slots make no sense to me. If I see three 7's on a line, I can tell that is a winner. A cherry on the line, winner. Three bars on a line -- again, winner. How the hell do you make sense of a winner that goes w-w-d-bucket-w zig zagging up and down? It's great that it tells you its a winner but still, the Spock in me would appreciate a modicum of logic.

I use the penny slots to pass the time, to break up a bad streak at BJ or Craps. Usually my wife is on these, last trip I played a penny slot for 3 hours on 20.00 and walked away with 350.00. Played 100.00 on a $1 slot lost it in 10 min. meh wasn't my money
