Gayle Mitchell, one of the first women to break through the “felt ceiling” of the previously male-dominated world of casino gambling gurus, is now regarded as one of North America’s leading experts on casino gambling.

Gayle’s commitment to educating the gambling public began almost 20 years ago, when she walked into a Las Vegas casino and experienced for the first time the thrill that comes with winning even a small bet. She made up her mind then and there to learn every game in the casino, and a short time later resolved to make a career out of sharing her insights with other gamblers. She had always considered herself to be a good teacher – she believes in keeping things simple – and decided that she would commit herself to showing newbies how to become knowledgeable, intelligent gamblers.

Gayle started her own publishing company, and her first book came out in 1997. Today she is the author of seven books, seven EBooks, and a set of five Tips booklets, and has presented many seminars on casino gambling. Currently she teaches Learn to Win Programs with other leading experts at GamblingTeachers.com. The site is a player-friendly Free Gambling Learning Center offering 300+ online lessons for popular casino games plus Gambling Teachers Blog. Gayle also operates www.gamerisms.com, which is a games glossary site for sport, casino, skill and video game players.

“It’s a fact that less than 2 percent of casino players know the profitable, correct strategies and/or rules for most casino games,” Gayle says. “Our group of career teachers and writers are working to improve that statistic.”

Bonus Slots Update: Big Buckaroos, The Big Win, Multi-Card Bingo, Neptune's Pearls, My Rich Uncle

18 October 2001

We explore more bonus slots in the latest update: Post #10. Here we go...

1) Big Buckaroos: This 15 line game will accept up to 135 coins and has 2 bonus rounds. One bonus is the 'Clown Toss' where a clown climbs into one of 4 barrels that the player chooses and begins to provoke a bull into tossing the barrel out of the ring. A bonus is awarded on the bull's performance by judges at which time the player can accept that amount or try again by sending the clown back to another barrel. In a second bonus round, the selected cowboy rides a bucking bull and each second he stays atop the Bull Ride adds a coin to the bonus. Hey Buckaroo--try your luckaroo here.

2) The Big Win: This 3 reel slot accepts up to 15 coins and has a player option of holding any or all reels and re-spinning the remaining reels to increase the payout. An 'Auto Hold' button provides help as to the best reels to hold. In the Money Tube Bonus Round, the player picks one of 4 tubes containing moving dollar bills with the option to try another Tube. At times, a game show host offers the player cash in lieu of the unknown amount of the final Tube selection. The Money Tube, once revealed can evoke frowns or smiles in the search for The Big Win.

3) Multi-Card Bingo: Below the 5 reels of this 9 line game are 5 corresponding bingo cards. When matching numbers appear on the bingo balls and the bingo cards, the cards light up allowing 5 bingo games at the same time. A completed bingo card awards the player with a mini-progressive payout that averages 280 coins when max. coins are played. The bingo cards are independent of each other, so the game continues until each card hits a bingo. The second screen bonus contains a standard 5 grid bingo card along with several bingo patterns with payouts ranging from 1-150 coins hidden under each of the 25 squares on the card. After selecting one of the 12 patterns, the 5 squares flip over revealing the bonus amount that you can accept or refuse by picking another pattern. This entertaining game leaves the player with many strategic choices and the opportunity to scream BINGO!

4) Neptune's Pearls: There are 7 reels on this undersea themed game and a top payout of 50,000 coins when 5 Neptune symbols light up the payline. A treasure chest symbol is wild and oysters are scatter pay symbols that also activate the bonus round. When 3 or more oysters land anywhere on the screen, the player is prompted to open each oyster in sequence. If a white pearl is revealed, the bonus is 2 coins times the total bet. Five white pearls in a shell pays 50 times the bet, while opened shells revealing black pearls could yield as much as 50X your bet or 25,000 coins. My pearls of wi$dom to players--'Try this slot treasure'.

5) My Rich Uncle: Five 'Uncle Mega Bux' symbols appearing on a lit payline will win 10,000 coins times the line bet for the top jackpot. Other symbols include his tropical island, an art collection, his mansion and a coat of arms--right down to his lawn mower. A scatter pay moose head pays 5, 20, or 150 coins times the total bet anywhere on the screen and 3 or more of the uncle's 'Safe' symbols trigger a random 'Hidden Safe' bonus. Three or more 'Wills' appearing starts a second bonus round where the screen transforms into Uncle's den for the reading of the will. A lawyer, some relatives, the mansion staff, a business partner, a dog and a cat all anticipate the reading of the will. Bonus amounts accumulate as the player inherits various items while the characters on-screen wisecrack at your good fortune--obviously the Rich Uncle's favorite.
