Day 3 - Wednesday - part 3
Oh man, did that triple play machine take off! I was on a hot one, on a winning streak, on a run, and it felt goooooood.
I played and played and the quads kept coming. Now I was having fun, and now I was getting some decent coin in out of my money.
I did about $4,000 coin-in on $20 and cashed out $100. I was actually up on the day by about $120, which is pretty good considering I'd played my last $5.
Breakfast time! The
Breakfast was delish, notwithstanding the fact that I lost on Keno while eating. I pondered the word notwithstanding. It's an odd word.

The best part of breakfast was the carny side bets they have, particularly the Golden Keno Balls. They also have a spinner multiplier feature for an extra quarter a game. After the game, a big wheel spins on the board to select the multiplier, which multiplies your non-existent wins. Unfortunately, one of the most common values on the wheel is a multiplier of '1x'. So, on a win of nothing, what's the bonus spin multiplier worth? (Who remembers this from Super Times Pay?) Not nothing... BONUS nothing.
Just when I rolled up to check my ticket, what was the Golden Keno Ball number? Why 69 of course.
Damn, this was going to be a good, good day.
I went back to the hallway machines after breakfast and made some money.
|$250? Yes please.|

|Straight Flush from 3. Damn I'm good|
I got as high as 1400 quarters and cashed out 800 or $200. I was really hoping to hit some premium quads with kickers but it wouldn't happen for me. I played for a solid hour, doing another $4K coin-in or so. And all of that on $20.
I felt like whatever bad mojo I'd had in the first 24 hours of my trip had finally been shaken. I took a break when I had nineteen quads under my belt. It wasn't even lunch-time yet.
And I wasn't done.
