Dog's advice helps user to land substantial jackpot at Slotland.com
Wednesday 31st May 2006
Taking advice from your dog is not normally the best way to maximise your winnings. But for one player at Slotland.com, it seems to have paid off.
The player, known only as Magamill, was having a lucky streak, having taken $300 from her initial $25. When she looked to see if her dog fancied a stroll or a snack, the animal stared back, as if, she says, it was imploring her to carry on. With her next $15 bet, she won $350, more than doubling her winnings.
However, she continued at the dog’s insistence. “I figured I was really ahead now and should probably quit with my $650,” she says. “But I looked down at Shelby [her dog] and this beast looks at me with those big brown eyes as if to say, ‘Keep playing, stupid!’ So, I did, next bet $15 again. Yep, you got it, two wild hearts fall down with two Jacks, and I've got $120, for sure, but if I discard the last card, I have a better chance of hitting, and yes, you got it, I hit the fifth Jack on the top line! I couldn't believe my eyes, another 375 bucks.”
Having taken such a big win, Magamill decided to quit while she was ahead, taking home nearly $1,000.
