    - Once again unexpectedly in the PS area for 36 hours. Got into town late. Driving around looking for something to eat put me within striking distance of Agua Caliente. Ordered a chicken and cheese quesadilla from the snack bar (which was actually delicious). Wandered around waiting for my order to come up. Noticed an empty group of Goonies machines, which I've yet to have a chance to play. So after I ate slipped in $45 and redeemed $15 in Free play and accidentally redeemed 1000 in points for another $10. Lots of mid level hits and random features to keep my interest and extend my play considering how little I bought in for. Hit the jackpot spin feature but missed any of the big payouts. Eventually ran out of credits and was about to leave when I noticed two Seinfeld machines. Pulled 200 out of the ATM and hit the bonus feature on my 2nd spin, where you get all four screens plus multipliers, extra wilds, etc... was up to $395 . Played ten more spins down to about $330.
    - Didn't hit anything else on that so jumped over to a Fu Dao Le machine with a Red Envelope up to $133 and progressives that were pretty high. Whittled my balance down to $300 and bailed on that . Went back to The Goonies machines and tried a different machine. Figured I'd give it 25 spins and see what happens. Not much did until the 24th spin where I hit the random feature to pick the keys and add wild reels. Got reels 1 through 4 for a nice $70 line hit and got my credit balance back up to $270. So I cashed out with my original $250 plus another $20 on top of that. Will probably have a couple of hours free in the afternoon tomorrow so will head over to Fantasy Springs to grab lunch and redeem my free play there and see what I can make of it.

    Yeah, those Goonies machines are fun. I haven't had a big, big hit on them but they cycle and the special features come up often enough to keep me entertained. Just wish I could get the bonus more often since that is where the better money can be made.

    Good luck on your next casino jaunt. (not sure if it's today or tomorrow)

    So I've had to drive back and forth from Los Angeles to Palm Springs 3x since the Agua Caliente impromptu visit that kicked off this thread. Popped in to the Spa Casino, Morongo, Fantasy Springs for quick $100-$200 quick strikes here and there. Nothing at all worth reporting on since then except for the Steak and Lobster Buffet at Morongo. Pretty decent, though you get a ticket for only 1 steak. My cardiologist would approve. Laid pretty low on the gambol since we've got our Sept trip just weeks away and now Rick's decided he wants to also go for his birthday in Nov. Yeah !
