There are certain slots I am just crazy about and they are from WMS games.  I have always liked the WMS graphics and sound and when they come up with a new one, I can spot them a mile away just from the look.  My two favorites are "Mystical Unicorn" and "King of Africa".  At the local casino, the bet ranges from 50 cents to 2.50.  They also have a "minor" progressive that hits before $50 and a major that hits before $500.  The graphics and music are so nice and a "full screen" comes up pretty regular.  For a 50 cent bet you get $250 dollars for a full screen and so on...not bad  at all. Hopefully I can insert a picture...  What are your favorites and why?

    My absolute favorite game is...ahem...Cleopatra. I know I know, I'm old school,lol. But between that and Video Keno that's a good full day of gaming for me.

    Last time visiting Thunder Valley I tried out a lot of new games. Can't even remember the names...if they paid me something maybe I would! That's one of the most stingiest casinos and supposedly the largest one here in Northern California. But so tight they squeak. 

    Another game I love is Cats. I think that's WMS. Love the colors on that. I used to love Frog Prince but hard to find anymore.  Mystical Unicorn looks familiar,don't think I've played it though.

      I like the classic "Diamond" series of slots by IGT (Double Diamond, Triple Diamond, Deluxe variants etc.)

      They are simple but have some of the best payout programs in the casino, at least according to an analysis I did several years ago. Last time I visited I hit $300 on my 2nd spin, and $150 on another machine of similar type.

      I haven't played video slots but hear they make the hold more bearable due to the elevated entertainment value

      If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
      If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

        Thanks for the replies.  WMS is cool but if I were to go old school, I really liked Pompeii and hit a few biggies on that one.  Cleopatra hit really big in the high limit room at Barona here locally...almost $300,000

            Recently, at a lodge meeting I was engaged in conversation with a trusted gent who works for a major Vegas based slot machine mfg, so on ostensibly good authority, he privately revealed this covert piece of VK info: "Each machine employs standard telephone dialing technology for memory & redialing and remembers the big hits & that's why very, very rarely after the big payout, will it repeat that number!" 

            This all I have on the subject, so via Ripley Believe It or Not Wink you consider & judge

                I have won on the same sets of numbers, so maybe it is not the rule at tribal casinos.  I know others who have kept the same numbers and it works for them.  Guess there is always what the tech folks say and what the players say.

                As to all the above replies, you have given me some new slots to check out.  The other night I played "Tarzan" for a $1.50 bet and hit what they call an "ape bonus" (a randomly occuring bonus that throws the reels around.  I hit tarzan figures (the wild symbol) in five reels and hit over 850 dollars on that single bonus.  Got to say, that gets a slot up on my favorite list!  Big SmileBanana

                      IGT and PlayTech are two companies i rely on, bit not the real money mode. I tried lotto and roulette too and got lucky with European roulette sometimes. Any kind of 5 reel slot machine is good enough for me. Aztec treasure is also a good slot though.

                          Depends on the manufacturer. WMS has it right on the body of the machine and in the opening screen when the machine "resets". (Take out your players card and cash out your ticket, it goes through a demo and it says WMS amongst other things).  On toucheasy keno it is at the bottom of the video screen ( it used to say US games in small text)...On Pompeii and Machines like that it may be on the lucite (plastic) back lit front panel...again in small type and those are Aristocrat games (it says Australia Pty Ltd) as well... Ooops I must hang out there quite a bit to notice!

                            I like Aztec Treasure too...Great bonus feature.  IGT...can't think of the games.  As for Keno, I LOVE toucheasy but I can't remember they changed the program from US Games to.....?????  old age setting in...If I think of it, will update
