Hi, I haven't posted in a long time but wanted to share this story with you. I took my Mom to Borgata for the day. She is 81 and not well. She is in a wheelchair and uses oxygen 24/7.. She enjoys AC and it is fun for her to get out and about once in a while. We like Borgata because it is so clean and airy and even though people smoke in some sections, it doesn't smell that smokey.
She gets all dressed up and I must say looks great. We arrived at Borgata around 10:30. We start playing our favorite penny machines. I love Panda and hit $145. with one spin. Mom is playing 50 cents on 100 Lions and is amazed at my win. I convince her to play the other Panda machine and she hesitates not wanting to spend 1.00 per spin, but gives in and starts winning like crazy. She cashes out over $300. So we had a nice start to the day.
We play some other penny machines. My Mom plays 30 cents a spin so she can hold on to her winnings. We play for a while and then decide to have lunch in the Amphora lounge. It is excellent as usual.
After lunch, I tell her it is time to play my favorite game, Mr. Cashman. I wheel her to the end machine and I play a machine two machines away from her. She is playing 50 cents a spin. She is playing Jewel of the Enchantress. Her machine keeps paying her and I tell her to play $1.25 since the machine seems to be paying and giving her Cashman quite often. She says she would give it a try and with the first $1.25 gets Cashman.
She gets the bonus where Cashman comes out and re-pins the reels. I say he better re-spin them all and sure enough he does. She ends up with three diamonds in the center which makes all three center reels wild. I know this is a good hit! Cashman throws a 5 times and I tell her that she won a nice amount of money. Then I look at the line payoffs and see one for $250, one for $125 and a few for $50. I tell her she won over $400! Well, the credit meter goes well past $400 and now I tell her that I can't add up the wins fast enough and don't really know what she won. It goes past $1,000, past $1,500, now my Mom is shaking with excitement! It finishes paying at $2,075.!
They came and paid her and she was really excited. I was so thrilled for her. We left Borgata around 4 pm and had a big smile on our faces.
