    Hi @Cosmo_Slot_Vice_President
    I just had a great visit and really really enjoy staying at the Cosmo! I have just one comment. On the Ultimate X machines, I appreciate that there is a minimum bet of 30 coins (for triple play) to keep the bonus chasers away, but for those who play Ultimate X, you can't leave the machine until you have a 100% losing hand without giving up the benefit (and cost) of the extra coins. It's my only beef with the Cosmo. I don't know how to solve that except to allow a 15 coin minimum and allow some bonus chasers to check the machines every so often.

    I also appreciate the stickers warning customers of the "persistent bonus" features on various machines including Ultimate X (is that the right term?). I didn't have anybody tell me to switch machines while playing Ultimate X (I've seen it happen in many other casinos however). However, while I was playing the Simpsons machine, a totally random man came up to me, pinched me on the shoulder, and told me he would show me a winning machine, I believe "Ocean Magic". I know that's a machine that bonus chasers will try to find advantages on, but to have him pull me from another machine must mean Cosmo is making the bonus chasers desperate, or I look naive.

    I like this too. For some reason I find it very annoying when someone sits down next to me and starts flashing through dozens of screens. (On the other hand, if I’m walking by and see some leftover multipliers, there’s a good chance I’ll play it.)

    I think the best option would be to ‘pay off’ the multipliers when chasing out. The Build-A-Wheel VP games do that if you cash out with a partial wheel. (I think they pay out somewhere around 80% of the EV of the earned wheel slices.). But as far as I know that is not an option on these games.

    Are you saying that these machines at Cosmo do NOT have this button (below), to lower the amount played per line? Having this feature enables you to play off the multiplier(s) and not accrue new ones.

    Nope, almost all of the ones at Cosmo have that disabled. I hated it at first, but I got used to it and now I like the lack of vultres hovering the VP banks.

    Yes, kind of. The button is there, but the minimum bet is 30 coins, so the button is useless!

    First time I've heard of it, but I would imagine so.

    That's unfortunate. I like the community aspect of it. I miss those community type games. Like Press Your Luck, That Leprechaun Gold one, the Wizard of Oz Big Event. Those were always such a blast to play with a row full of people.

    Yeah this wasn't as good as those imo... when a bonus was hit...you had to buy into it extra

    Yeah, I've never used that phrase before. But I have heard the phrase "accumulator slots" before.

    I walked over to Cosmo twice a couple of weeks ago in search of Wonder 4 Spinning Fortunes - and could not find it. I could have sworn that many have posted that it is there.

    The first walk over was in the evening of a busy holiday weekend - yikes it was really really packed - so not finding it that time was understandable. But I went over at 6:30ish AM the next morning and couldn't find it then either.

    Cosmo is nice - lots of slots - they seem to have titles before any other casino on the strip.

    Nice job Kevin.
