    Saw a video (blueheart) on YT for "Not in Kansas Anymore". Looks like fun, will definitely give it a try.

    Trying to make it in September as it looks like great fun just to walk around and see the new/trial stuff. Would be nice to attend a convention in LV that isn't security cameras and automatic gates. :confused:

    I would absolutely love to do a meet, plus a high limit pull. I'm only there through the morning of the 28th though.

    I'll do a G2E meet and slot pull regardless but even more exciting if I can get into the event as well!

    We could certainly organize a meet and HL pull if there's enough who would like to do it on September 27th. :)

    In addition to Cosmopolitan it's been reported at San Manuel casino in Highland, CA, and at Gold Coast casino in Vegas. I suspect it will be popping up in a lot of strip casinos soon but so happy that Cosmo got it!

    Will do our best to have a day and time that will fit the majority. We'll try and nail it down in August. :)

    LOL, I don't think of you as a newbie, but of course anyone from VF is welcome.

    :) I was actually jokingly referring to being a newbie to a high limit slot pull. I've never done one before, and very excited to try one. They sound awesome! A few questions though. How do they work. It sounds like everyone puts in a certain amount of money - looks like the one coming up is $500. Do you play one machine, does each person choose the machine they want to play with their $500. How does hitting a jackpot work.

    So, as long as I am already there during G2E, a few questions. Is it realistic to expect to be able to get a ticket. Is there a better day to go. I'd would love to go and would even consider changing my flight to stay a day longer if I knew for sure I could get a ticket.

    Thanks for everyone's help!

    So far most of the HL pulls arranged through the board have been at the $500 buy in level.

    The rules for machines will normally be posted in advance. We have done them where everyone was able to choose a machine for their $500 portion, but another option is to pool the money and split it between only a couple of machines until hopefully a HP is hit. The play has been playing the money through "once" i.e.- if playing a $100 machine with $2,000 then we would count out 20 spins and cash out the tito at the end which would be redistributed back to players.

    For hitting a Jackpot, again the rules will be posted in advance and dependant on who is playing. Often players who have some losses will offer to cover taxes up to a Jackpot about of $XXXX.

    Rules tend to be chosen for each specific pull dependant on what the players involved prefer. That can include a change of game other than slots, or re-investing the small wins. Just ensure everyone attending is agreeable to the same guidelines. Then of course, have fun and win big!!

    I've been going to g2E now for at least 5 years and have always been able to go to a link for free passes for it. Unless they suddenly change the way exhibitors give out links to free passes 4 to 6 weeks or so before the convention you should easily be able to get one. The first day of the exhibits opening which is Tuesday is the busiest, it's also the day that if there are going to be any celebrities on hand that they are there. The slowest day is the last one Thursday and on that day the exhibits close at 3pm.

    I was lucky last year since I was with sdguy who is one of the zombies in the new Walking Dead 2 game that Aristocrat let us stay at that area after the convention had closed at 5pm on Wednesday and we had a key for the Aristocrat games so we could bring up the menu that triggers the bonuses and have some times with their games without the crowds. We also had permission to record the Aristocrat games which is hard to get as all the companies are trying to protect their new games from their competition. Scientific games (WMS and Bally Technologies) also gave us permission but only for a hour and we had to be escorted by one of their staff and even then we would constantly be told to stop recording and the staff member had to keep waving off booth security or talking to them to let them know we had permission. Of course most people aren't going to want to record the games or take photos but if you do then these days they let everyone take them on the main walkways outside of the booths. Five years ago they were so strict one couldn't even do that and myself and some others even got told at some booths not to take written notes, LOL, so it's great that the former strict rules have been relaxed.

    Everyone is allowed to play the slots on displayed during the convention but since the staff is mainly trying to demonstrate them to the casino employees who will be ordering their games, you might be asked at times to politely stop playing so they can demonstrate it.

    That's the long answer, the short answer is I really think you will be able to get a pass. :)

    Do it Josie! It will be my first time going and I plan on going on Wednesday and Thursday ( maybe). I don't get in until 7:42 pm on Tuesday the 27th because it was the shortest flight that day. I usually like to fly in and be there by noon. I'll go with you if you decide to go. I'll be staying at Palazzo the 27-30th and then at Cosmo the 30th-Oct 3 when I fly out at noon. I'm really looking forward to meeting a bunch of people from this group and especially Diana as I've been following her for awhile and always miss being in Vegas with her by a day or two. SDGuy promised me a slot pull with a game of Toto bingo too so I'm super excited about that as I adore him and his antics. ;)

    Let me think about it Heather. As it stands with my existing schedule, I could still go to the show on Tuesday as I'm scheduled to fly home on the 28th, but would love to go with you. I'm just not sure I can survive 5 nights in Vegas :).

    Hey Diana,
    I just booked a trip during that week and I am hoping to be able to get passes for G2E since I have never been. I will wait for your link posts...Thank you! I would definitely love to be a part of a HL Pull with this amazing group of peeps but I don't arrive until the 28th so I am hoping maybe the 28th!?! ;)

    I get in on the 27th! I'm staying at Palazzo from Tuesday to Friday and then Friday to Monday at Cosmo. Hope to meet you Cathy! I wasn't supposed to get in until 8pm on the 27th but for the first time in aviation history I got an email about a schedule change that I'm actually happy about! Lol I now get in at 1:08pm on the 27th! I saw this email and cringed and started to get mad until I read it! Lol 7576d0264f6c7ba53c6213e4fda97c1f.jpg
