    Specifically, which type of slot machine? Not poker slots or digital or keno, etc., but regular 'put coins in, pull arm down'.
    Mine was the 'Wheel of Fortune' maximum 3 quarter machine with the bonus wheel on top. A lot of stuff happened that day that would be fun to tell, maybe I'll ramble about that in a different thread.
    Anyway, I was playing max coins and after about 12 pulls, I kept winning. Small wins, big wins, etc. for about twenty minutes. Walked away from that machine with 1300 bucks. I'm not a slot machine guy, so it was all 'free' winnings. Vegas, Stardust. The year was 2004. How about the rest of the shed? Howard did a few 'live' shows from Vegas.

    So I married young... but I was on my first work trip at 24 just before I got married.

    With my boss and sitting next to him at a slot at the Luxor. Put five bucks in and hit max bet... won $500 on first pull.

    Debated for 3 hours whether or not to tell my fiance, or to use it on my choice from the hooker books I collected off the strip.

    Sadly I told her and it paid for a crappy DJ at our wedding... and I beat off to the idea of banging one of the chicks in that book.

    I won $500 on a Wheel of fortune. Went to tell my buddy, who was sitting at a bar in the casino. I sat down and put a few bucks in the video blackjack machine, within 10 minutes I lost it all. Video blackjack truly is the devil.

    I'm SO not a gambler. I've worked WAY to hard for my money to just pump it into some machine. I may as well just literally flush it down the toilet.

    That being said, when I was 18, I went on a cruise, and won $200 in a quarter slot machine. :shucks:

    How about those VIP machines behind the velvet rope? Each token costs a hundred bucks? Like I said, I don't really do slots, but why the fuck do people play those? Has to just be rich guys buying those tokens for their 'date' of the night, just to keep her occupied. You know, I might play one if I were to win big sometime. Sucker bet though.

    My biggest win was $700 on a $3 Quick Hits bet. My husband won $2500 on a 75 cent bet on a Blazing 7's machine.

    Wheel of Fortune seems to be the popular machine here. I played it for a few hours at the Luxor last year and won just over $1000...

    I don't mind spending money on something I really want, but gambling seems like a total waste.

    ^^^ This. Bores the living shit out of me. I have to make a concerted effort to be "part of the team" when I go to Vegas on biz-niz. Add to that the fact that I don't drink and I am officially the most boring person to be in Vegas with.

    To answer OPs question: $12.00. And I was upset I won, because that meant I had to stay and hang out even longer . . .
