02.12.2018 Time enough for life to unfold*
Hey Now! And we're back. 6 a.m. There's a great view of the fog out the window. I can see nothing. But it has gotten quite chilly overnight. 54°. I actually put on more than just shorts and flip flop, which has been my playing attire to this point. A kiss before departing. Down below, it's quite on the barge. The fact that the casino is indeed a barge doesn't do much to help our Sweet Ti maneuver Truckie around. Too many weird floor angles, especially under carpets where they are hidden. Over by the cage I spot a bank of machines I hadn't noticed before. Double Sizzlin' 7s Progressives. 3 reel. 1 line. .25. Independent progressives. They range from 3k to 14k. Looks like they reset at 3k. I try the 14k one. It's not unusual for me to notice different machines for the first time. I still haven't just walked around the entire casino checking out all of the machines. One of these days.... needless to say- no progressive. Onward Jim!
Lock it Link is so damned volatile. Especially .05 or higher. 2.50 a spin is my usual bet. More than that seems to evaporate. Took a loss.
But then I saw a bank of 1. Blazin' Double 7's Progressives. Insert coin.
Good for a push.
I wander around for a bit and end up at a W4 Tall Fortunes. I choose Wild Leprechauns, Miss Kitty and 2 Buffalo Golds. I start out with a 6.90 bet. The buttons change amounts depending on game choice.
While I'm playing these chicks behind me are asking me to join them for some BJ.
"Do you want to play with me?"
Roll that bonus footage Jimmy-
One thing I find interesting is that you can tell by the music approximately how many credits you have won. I think I've got the songs Buffalo sings down pat. Well, within a hundy credits anyhow. I'm not sure how that session ended, It's not in the notes. I played Sweet Ti's Top Dollar until it malfunctioned and the reels just kept slowly turning. There looked to be 13 spots on each reel. I hit the service button and while I waited looked for a born on date on the machine. It's pretty old. It makes no sound except the clicking as the reels stop. There were several manufacturers labels but I couldn't find a date. Today's local, Cary showed up to mend things. I talked to him last trip. He opens 'er up and I ask about these old machines. "Most everything inside is retro-fitted in these". I ask about the sounds. "Hell, half these old machines don't squawk at all". He got it re-started and I thanked him. I played on and had a few unremarkable offers and line hits. I must have pushed. That's what I wrote down. I need to go wake up Sweet Ti for her Spa Day, so I get some Infusion products and emigrant to higher altitudes. She awakens, we feast. They make a killer ham and cheese croissant with the cheese on top.
Crunchy cheese topping
We also killed the rest of the cheese and fruit platter. The rooms here come with a nice sized fridge which comes in handy. Soon enough it's time go down for the spa treatments. I want to get a shot of Ti with one of these trees. The decorations are very interesting.
Senses Spa and Salon awaits. My betroth is whisked away and I check out the men's facilities. I am informed that Emerald, the shiny green card gets me an all access pass here daily. Well, at least a free pass. Just for me though. But with a spa service, Sweet Ti has free range today.
This place is the bomb. If I ever get off the shneid and back to some kind of fitness routine I will avail myself. Right now it's time for a session of Buffalo Gold. I tried recording a live play video but this is is one of those big asses machines. Need to be 10 ft. away.
I had to drop down to 1.50 from 3.60 when I hit that last one. Still ended up losing another hundy. The notes don't bode well. I played DouDiaDluxe, Double Blazin' 7's Prog., and Money Rain .50 and they were hungry. Tough. How about some Critter Live Play there Jim???
All in less than 2 minutes.
I ran out of hundys and had to take the Walk of Shame upstairs. The fog has finally lifted enough to get some shots outside the 28th.
It's 68° out here. Nice.
Flush with Benjys I attack the Higher Limit starting with TripDia Haywire. I hit this and it went Haywire. But only once.
Needed 3 Haywires there.
I'm using Sweet Ti's card to get her some points. She's only 3k away from maintaining Sapphire, the Uppity Blue card. I move on to some Pinball, but got smoked out. I believe it's time for some VP. I noticed these slants in the Higher Limit. 9/5 DDB .25
That was fun and profitable. For a change.
Sweet Ti calls that she is Sufficiently Breathless. I mean Rejuvenated. She's up for some DouDiaDluxe. Insert TITO. Oh Look!!!!
Way to go Baby Duck!
She cashed and we try some .25/,50/1. Top Dollar. Maybe we can do the Parley.
Or maybe not.
It's YAH Day. We avail ourselves of the kiosk and print out 1.5 free buffet coupons. Dinner commences at 3:30. As true Over The Hill Citizens, we have our evening meal then. The Vietnamese station is a nice touch. A fair amount of seafood was representing the area. Other than that, it was fairly standard buffet fare. Cost us 4.50 in comps. 2 sporks. Sweet Ti wants to chill so we head above the action. But the cable is out. Casino wide. So it's nappy time for wifey. I grab a Coors NA for the road. I rate Coors NA just a bit below Ab'Dulls green in taste. That's not as bad as Busch NA or as good as Ab'Dulls amber. Confused? Just order Kaliber if possible.
That was fun.
I played that for a good 2 hours. I got down to playing 1 hand and bounced back a couple of times. I finally used 'em credits all up.
1.50 Max Bet
I kinda like this version. Needs to be multi denom.
I pulled a hundy from that believe it or not. Seed money for tomorrow. Mardi Gras Day!
Totals: Sweet Ti- 3018 pts. RB- 20255 pts. BR- took yet another hit
