    Hello! I was invited to the Millionaire Maker slot tourney early September. Winners qualify for the finale in Lake Tahoe in April. I really want to go, but my bankroll has not yet recovered from my last two trips.

    Does anybody know if CET will be holding another qualifying tourney at a later date? Vegas is no fun without enough money to throw away on gambling!

    I would think there would be more than one in Las Vegas just because of the size of the CET gaming area and crowds there.

    I’m doing the qualifier round in Atlantic City this weekend. First slot tournament I’ve ever done. The qualifiers are national and seem to be set a up at random locations.

    Anyone who has done one of these before have any tips or advice? Is it pretty much dumb luck or is there any type of strategy to this?

    @Chickenlips I’ve had various offers including a couple for Vegas, Laughlin and Ak Chin.

    @Wallew3 My experience, hit the button and hope for the best.

    Well, I decided to go ahead and book it. I will pinch all my pennies, scrape together some dough, and off to Vegas I go in 25 days! This will be another solo trip. Who knows, maybe I will qualify for the Millionaire finals! Like I need an excuse for Vegas :p

    Hi @Chickenlips -- as far as I know, the $150k CET Millionaire Maker at Vegas properties have been going on 1x per the end of every month. I haven't received anything past August though, so either I've gone too many times (I think I've been to every one this year so far, and I've qualified for two finale spots -- but only one counts) and they stopped inviting me, or August is the last one. That you received an invite for early September means the former and I'm persona non grata!

    As @Wallew3 mentioned, your local property would also be holding the same Millionaire Maker qualifier but with a smaller prize pool.

    And yep, no strategy except to just hit the button and try to get as many spins in as possible.

    So an exciting update! I was whining about not having enough money for a Vegas trip so I did what all "smart" people do when they want money....went to the local casino! Usually that does not go as planned, but this time it did. I won $1290! Handpay!!

    Did I go home? NO! Won another $400! I dropped $200 more and called it a night with $1500 and change in my purse. Vegas bankroll! I'll be adding to that of course but Hochunk Wisconsin is funding my Vegas trip. Ha!

    JeJas - It's a Class 2 machine, you're actually playing Bingo on a slot machine. That's how casinos get around any anti gaming laws. They work the same as a regular slot, so it really is a joke.

    Then you must be really lucky to get a hand pay at Class II casino.
    Ride your lucky train to Vegas and win big!
