A Precise System on How to Win Progressive Jackpots in Las Vegas
Headed to Vegas soon? You're going to want to read this. Trust me. I am about to let you in on a little secret regarding one of my favorite slot machines in Las Vegas. I have won thousands of dollars on this particular slot machine, by hitting the progressive jackpot.
(A progressive jackpot is a jackpot that grows by the second, updating in real-time above the machine, as more money is put in.)
The slot machine is called Cherries Jubilee. It might sound like a common generic slot, but it's not. It's only available at MGM Grand.
The machines are very similar to the Majestic Lions (which are MGM's other 'signature' slot machines that pay out around $750,000 EACH DAY!!), but I find that the Cherries Jubilee machines are much looser with their progressive jackpots. I actually call the Majestic Lions "The Kitties". They are fun to play, but have seemed to become tighter over the years.
Really the Kitties and the Cherries have the exact same pay scales, but the Cherries pay more often. If you stand and watch the Cherries Jubilee for any amount of time, guaranteed you'll see someone hit the jackpot. Just so you know, after the jackpot has been hit on any of these machines it resets its jackpot value back to $1,000 even.
HERE COMES THE SECRET TIP YOU'LL WISH YOU WOULD HAVE KNOWN ALL ALONG:
Look for a Cherries Jubilee that has a jackpot in the range of $1,003-$1,009ish. Any higher than that it seems that machine is too tight. Any lower than that, I'll still play it, but it seems to want to wait until the jackpot gets in the range I've given you. Make sure you play max credits on them, which is $3 each 'pull'.
DO NOT PLAY ANYTHING LESS THAN THE MAX, IT WILL BITE YOU IN THE BUTT!
It's as simple as that, really. Yes, at $3 a pop, money goes fast. I've traveled to Vegas 4 times, and I've used this system I'm sharing with you on each visit. I've won this Cherries Jubilee progressive jackpot on EACH visit. I even won them multiple times in the same day, or same visit. Except my last visit there. where I only won 1 jackpot the last time I visited. :) Woe is me!
I'm typically a table game player-- but with slots, MGM has the best without a doubt. People hog these machines. The machines are located right by an elevator and as I described, every 2 minutes someone is hitting a jackpot. Sometimes 3 or 4 people next to each other will hit the jackpot around the same time and the man or woman slot attendant will walk up to each person and pay them.
Be careful, though. There was this one machine I won the jackpot on, it reset to 1,000 after I got paid like I said, but I decided to continue playing on another machine that hadn't hit yet. Some other guy sat down immediately and won again on the one I was playing, not even 1 full minute later. Doh! Stay with a machine if you feel it to be lucky. At least give it another minute or two.
But in general, the system works :) Observe first..
One more thing-- walk far away after you win, if you want to take a break. It will drive you crazy hanging around that area and seeing other people win every second thinking you could have been sitting down at that machine. I promise you, if you stay there 5-10mins you're guaranteed to see someone hitting it!
