I go through ups and downs of whether I should dress up for Halloween or not each year. Yes, it’s a made up holiday designed to take our money and make us fat…BUT it’s also a time to be a kid again and have some fun!!
Here’s a look at my past creations...
Perhaps the most epic costume happened right before the last presidential election where Marco and I dressed up as Hilary and Donald!! Who wore it best? HA! (Don't tell him I posted this or he'll kill me!)
This current year, I'm not really feeling like dressing up. That said, I will be doing a live stream tonight (Wed Oct 31) from a casino so I need to wear something...I wonder what I'll be??? (I'm not teasing either, I have zero idea haha). If I wanted it to be Slots related, I could be a giant 7, Willy Wonka, Glinda the good witch, a dragon or just a big ole slot machine. Whatever it is, I have to make sure I can move around in it alright so I'm able to gamble!!
By the way, I will be going Live on my regular Youtube Channel, but then I'm doing a SECOND live stream from my BRAND NEW LIVE CHANNEL!!
Be sure to SUBSCRIBE because we are going into the HIGH LIMIT ROOM baby!!
See you soon!!
Believe it or not, after dozens of trips to Las Vegas I always seem to forget something. I hope this list provides you with a great start!
Because of Smokey Casinos:
Because of Cold Casinos:
Because of the SUN, duh
Because it’s expensive!
Because it’s VEGAS
Because you’re Traveling:
And the best thing you can do to prep for a trip to Vegas??? WATCH MY VIDEOS to learn where and what to play! And be sure to order your CasinoSwag in advance so you can dress to impress in the Casinos! I mean hey, if you're not going to win a Jackpot, you may as well look as if you did!
I generally keep my cool in my videos, so you may be interested to know there are some things that really get my slot blood boiling. Here are a few that involve an average trip to a casino.
Lap Dancers. We all have a little bit of road rage I’m sure. Mine revolves around people on their phones while driving! I’m sorry, but no matter how good a driver you are, looking down at your lap for even 2 seconds is all it takes to kill me. And I take that seriously, my fans rely on my live stream to start on time! I have been known on occasion to do a long honk beside someone on their phone and flip them the PHONE hand sign, lol. As in, hang up the phone!! I imagine myself to resemble an angry Cruella Deville driving by. Most are embarrassed and put it down.
Once at the casino, there are a flurry of other pet peeves…
Chair Huggers. People who put ash trays or dirty items on a chair in front of a slot machine drives me nuts. Or even worse, they will angle a chair against the machine or tie their bungee cord between the slot machine and their chair to proclaim “This machine is MINE!”. I think it bothers me most because I understand the RNG’s of slot machines and that most machines are not set to go off at a certain time. I assume most of these chair huggers believe otherwise.
Bangers N Smash. These are the people who just LOVE to smash the buttons on a game – especially when they get a ‘link’ bonus. Non-stop banging the button while at the same time rubbing the machine trying to alter the outcome of a predetermined computer screen and yelling at it. I’ve even seen fists punching the screen when it doesn’t do as they request. I wonder if I told them to settle down if they would listen?
Hover ‘Boreds’. Believe me, if anyone is used to getting stared at in a casino – it’s me! However, when people who are not watching me because of my channel and are just hovering over me and watching me play because they are bored or something – it really irks me. As much as I love the attention I receive from my channel, I still require space and like to keep people at a safe distance without feeling their breathe on my neck.
LETTUCE HAVE AN OPTION PLEASE. I love to eat food, and at the casino you can find some pretty fancy places. That said, the options for a vegan are often, well, option-less. I understand it’s my personal choice to be vegan – but is it asking too much to have at least one item on the menu that doesn’t come from the death or torture of animals? Wow, that got deep real fast haha. I don’t judge those who do eat whatever their taste buds desire, but believe it or not, even a simple salad rarely makes its way onto the menu without it being covered with bacon, cheeses or dairy filled dressings. My go to meal request at casinos sadly is more often than not “a side of french fries with a side salad – hold the cheese, meat and dressing”.
I think if everyone just watched my channel, this world would be a better place haha. That way they would understand how slots work and perhaps have a better stress-free time!
Have you seen this video where a woman decided to hit me instead of her machine? Perhaps another pet peeve of mine lol: CLICK HERE TO WATCH
It’s a great question we should all ask ourselves before getting in that car and heading to our local. I fear that most people go for the wrong reason – to get RICH!
No matter how many times I tell people that “There is no such thing as winning in the long run on slot machines”, and no matter how many facts I can throw at people about how slots are designed to take your money – the majority of people continue to play to make it rich.
The correct answer should be: “Because I get a thrill out of the excitement at the possibility of winning a jackpot – BUT – realize that the odds are against me.”
I suggest you repeat the following statement before you start your next gambling escapade:
“I ________(your name), am going to the casino today for the sole purpose of spending $______(whatever your budget is). For that money I expect to get back in return the following: Five hours of game play, a comp meal, parking, cocktails, good music and the excitement of having the opportunity to win a jackpot. I am fully going to the casino with the expectation of spending (not losing or investing, but spending) X amount of dollars for this entertainment.”
Setting up that expectation may help put things in perspective. I can’t tell you how many times in the past I’ve said statements like “I can’t believe I just lost $1,000 today. I could have bought a new computer, or TV with that!”. That was back when I thought I was investing and had some kind of control over my wins. Now that I’m grounded in reality, I get to decide if I want that TV or if I prefer some entertainment for the afternoon.
Yes, you can get lucky.
Yes, you can have a lucky streak.
But eventually that luck will run out, and the slots will take what they feel they are deserved.
There is no such thing as winning on slot machines in the long run.
There is no such thing as making a living playing slot machines.
There is only luck and timing, and you better hope they both Line it UP! But even if they don’t, you should be happy – because you got what you paid for…EXCITEMENT!
Hello Rudies! As most of you probably know, once in a while, I’ll film a collaboration or friendly competition video with some of my slot friends - always a good time with my pals! There have been many ‘challenge-style' videos going around lately towards me and others, and I don’t mean to disappoint, but these out-of-the-blue ‘challenges’, are something that I always decline, for a few reasons.
Even the word ‘challenge’ comes with baggage attached to it - many people associate it with conflict and negativity, and that’s not in my nature. I started doing this JUST to have fun and prefer to keep it on target with my core beliefs!
Also, if anyone can ‘challenge’ me at any time, and there were an obligation for me to accept them all, I wouldn’t be able to make these videos for you guys anymore. I’d be spending all of my time responding to challenges from every person who came along. If I decide to do a fun video with my close friends, as I have in the past, then that should be my choice (speaking of which, I’ll be filming a fun video with Diana just next week!). My friends and I get along great on YouTube and beyond, and we always have a blast together while cheering each other on even from abroad.
Anyway, with that being said, I’m sure my position on this will disappoint some people - it’s not possible to please everybody. But I’m hopeful and confident that the vast majority of you will understand where I’m coming from, and recognize that for me, it’s all about having fun, and playing responsibly and I wish everyone the most success. So with that being said, I’ll see you guys at the slots! I have a busy week ahead and best start packing for it...
It is VERY difficult for me to differentiate between which slot machines are my favorite, and which ones I play because they’re my FAN’S favorites. Despite numerous times of being asked this question before, I will attempt (and most likely fail) to pick my top ten slots at the casino right now. To help me choose, I am ranking them in order of which machines I just MUST play every time I visit the casino.
Cleopatra 2 – I mean come on, it was one of my biggest jackpots ever and it really kickstarted my channel. I’m always trying to relive that moment.
Wheel of Fortune – Speaking of moments – who can forget that $10k win during a LIVE Stream! I never used to play this game, but now you can’t get me off of it!
Buffalo Gold – This has been a crowd favorite for quite some time. It probably would have been closer to the top of the list 6 months ago, so we shall see if it even ranks in 6 months from now!
Quick Hit Wild Blue – I just can’t NOT play this game. I will keep trying to hit those 8 or 9 quick hits!
Tarzan – Aristcrat has done it again with this new concept game. As much as I hate the volatility, I freakin’ love it too! (It does help I got a hand pay on my first attempt!)
Double Top Dollar – This game is fun regardless of the denomination. It’s one of the few times you feel like you have SOME control over the outcome! And it must be the "DOUBLE" version too!
Wonder 4 Tower – This game is always a must. My favorite is playing all 4 Pompeii games at Max Bet which is only $5 a spin!
Lightning Link – This is one of those games that I used to LOVE, and then despised and now LOVE again! And talk about a game changer for the industry! As much as I realize that ‘it’s all about timing’, you always get that feeling that the MAJOR or GRAND is about to hit! I’m ready to #LandTheGrand
Dancing Drums – This is one another one of those game changing machines. I mean, who doesn’t want to fill that pot up and get one of those delicious bonuses?
Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory – One of the older versions with the 7 characters all around it. It’s my favorite movie and they did a wonderful job with this machine.
