Gayle Mitchell

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: King Putt, Money to Burn, Payout, Titanic, Texas Tea, Trucks and Bucks

1 October 2001

It's a steady, but enjoyable, task to keep up with the slot manufacturers and their continuing parade of bonus slots maneuvering for space on the casino floors. Therefore, in the next few weeks, I will be reviewing many of these 'newbies' in a flow of Updates to keep up with this current slots trend. Here goes #4.

1) King Putt: Nine paylines for this round of miniature golf. 'King-Putt', the top jackpot symbol activates the two bonus rounds. Three or more of these symbols produce an instant bonus round and bonus amount as per the player's choice. Second-screen bonus starts up with three 'castles' and a mini-golf course scene. Putt your way through multipliers, bonus amounts to a potential 'Castle Bonus' of 13,500. Fore!

2) Money to Burn: First bonus when fireman's helmet, jacket and boots aline will pay ten times the total bet. With a hit frequency of every 1-2 spins, you have a good opportunity to be around for the second bonus. Get a combo of three fire alarm bells to open up to a burning building and three fire trucks numbered to correspond to three floors of the building with six flaming windows each. Choose which windows have the fire extinguisher, if correct, move on to next floor collecting multiplying bonuses. Not only are you 'putting fires out', but you reap the 'hot bucks' too.

3) Payout: A feast of colors for the eyes in this bonus-rich fruit, bar and 7's version. The 'Payout Bonus' symbol activates the bonus game. 'Match and Win' spins that are completed freeze the action until a spin stop at which time bonus bucks are calculated as per schedule. 'Line 'Em Up' bonus event begins with the player's selection in a sequence of--column, then freeze, then another column, freeze--until three of the same appear up, down or across. Another round begins and the bonus win rises to a well-deserved Payout!

4) Titanic: No sinking feeling here, on the contrary, this is upscale elegance of a classic slot. Sights of diamond jewelry, deck chairs, White Star logo, mystical music and the dreaded iceberg. Line up three sections of the 'big ship' for the top jackpot of 10,000 coins. Seven combinations and specific symbol payouts offer better than average wins and hit frequency. A storied ship encased in a better-than-basic slot.

5) Texas Tea: Black Gold - Oil that is. Greet Texas Ted, Armadillo from Amarillo, yellow rose, Cadillac and a Texas bull. Five Texas state symbols pays the 'big strike'. Three derrick symbols sends the game into shakes, shivers, gushing oil and finally the outline of Texas. With the help of Texas Ted, you plant the oil derrick(s) and watch the gushing returns. After three Texas Ted appearances, he invites you into his office and sends an 'Oil Dividend' check your way. A second 'striking reason' to play this game.

6) Trucks and Bucks: Rev up those Monster Trucks--throw in automotive, desert symbols, scatter-pay checkered flag and wild 'winner's cup'. Races are started with three scattered truck symbols anywhere or three lined up left to right (better pay). Choose your racer, start your engines, check multipliers and collect at the finish line.

I passed along this information in Slots Report #11. On the top of slots are lights or candles that signify the denomination of the slot. Nickels=Red, Quarters=Yellow, 50c=Gold and $1=Blue. This should help immensely during slot expeditions.
