    I'm mostly a low level slot player, usually betting anywhere between $2.50 to $20.00 a push. I estimate I usually spend only about 25 - 30% of my time slotting in the HL rooms. However, while reviewing my handpays from my last 5 trips, I see that I hit approximately 80% of my handpays while in the HL rooms.

    Just curious where do you hit most of your handpays, in or out of the HL rooms? Thanks!

    I've never had one :) I'm a Buffalo hunter and the handpay gods have not smiled on me yet - after 9 years of slotting - bet levels between 2.40 and 12.00 on Wonder 4

    I've only had one slot hand pay. $2080 on the Billion Dollar Buyer Machines at GN. My other two hand pays came at L'Auberge Las Vegas, clearing out the progressive Royals at the Globar at quarter denom video poker.

    Actually, I try to actively avoid hand pays now. I like to come in just below the reporting line on wins. But I'd take a big one if it came obviously.

    just outside the HL room at bellagio (side towards buffet). the $5 and $10 ($10-$30 max bet) machines is where i hit my majority. that damn buffalo gold has been meh last few trips. i venture into the actual hl room occasionally.. but unless i just did the walk of shame.. not enough ammo.

    i've never had much luck on the buffalo machines either...


    agreed... i've had a couple of $1,100+ hits which were nice!


    i'm hearing more and more about just outside the HL rooms. Maybe something to it? lol. I hit that $1,100+ just outside the HL at Cosmo. :)

    Five Handpays over the last few years, none in high limit room. Betting:
    2.50 = 1200 Wicked Winnings 3 @Wynn
    9 = 1509 Cleopatra @Flamingo
    3 = 9400 (Yum!) Buffalo Grand, here's the vid @TI
    25 = 2400 Woodland Whisper @Encore
    10 = 1427 Queen of the Wild 2 @Cosmopolitan

    So all over the place, fairly lucky, diff bet sizes, never in High Limit.

    I have only hit two in any HL room ever, although I don't know if it's a good sample since I probably don't play more than 5% of the time in a HL room anywhere. But one was a royal on dollars, and dollar VP is usually outside of the HL room, that time I was just playing one inside one. The other was the major on 5 cent Dancing Drums recently in Reno at the Atlantis HL room.
    In Vegas I hit two in the past 6 months at Cosmo, both outside the HL room- 5 cent Cleo 2 and Pan Am. My biggest win in the HL room there has been $700.

    95% of my play is $5/$10 $10/$20 $50/$100 pull single line pinball, Double top dollar, and WOF. Looking back on the year so far, I get most of my handpays on $10/$20 pull Double Top Dollar. And it's a fairly good sample size of W2-G4s.

    I've had a floor person tell me that the Wicked Winnings 3 up front at Aria has the most handpays in that area. Must all be you :) :)

    The gf’s biggest share of HP’s has come from keno nailing 6 and 7 spots. Usually quarters or 50¢ max bet which is usually 8 to 16 coins.

    None yet.

    But I play lots of games that preclude me from getting handpays though.

    First one was in June of this year at Cosmo, I'm an ultra low roller but won $1,400 playing Walking Dead. I was shocked because it wasn't even a bonus round, just got a lot of Michonne's with a "x3" on the last reel. I was pleasantly surprised.

    Won my 2nd handpay here at a local casino this week playing the same machine and picked the Major $250 jackpot with a x5! Was betting $3.75 per spin both times.
