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: Mayan Wheel of Gold, Crazy Fruits, Swampland, Triple Lucky 7s

29 October 2001

We are on board again, searching for newer Bonus Slots with Post #11.

1) Mayan Wheel of Gold: The sun, a torch and various artifacts are features of this Mayan Goldslot. When 5 alligators are lined up, the player wins 5,000 X the line bet for the top jackpot. The bonus pay wheel is activated when three or more Wheel symbols line up on the payline. The Wheel has 20 boxes with multipliers of 20X--500X. Three Wheel symbols=one spin, 4 gets you 3 spins and 5 wheels gives 5 bonus spins. Multiply each spin X the line bet and total all spins for your end bonus. The Mayan King symbol is wild plus Pyramid symbols anywhere on the first and fifth reels take you to the Chamber of Riches second bonus screen. Once inside the tomb, you select golden treasures until you uncover the Collect symbol.

2) Crazy Fruits: Come on over and meet the fruit characters--Cool Guy Orange, a Romantic Lemon, Money Melon, Sweet Cherry and Surfer Banana. The tomato (is that a fruit or a veggie?) is wild and substitutes for all other fruit except for the scatter-pay Banana and Crazy Fruitssymbols. Three or more Crazy Fruits in any position trigger the second screen bonus when a closed fruit crate appears on the screen. A voice from inside the crate is heard with 'Hey! Let me out!' at which time, the player's touch will reveal fruit bonuses for $$ or free games. Rack up your winnings until that nasty worm is revealed in a piece of the fruit. The second bonus feature is triggered when a Lucky Fruitssymbol appears. All symbols of that symbol type open and all pesky worms are removed for a guaranteed bonus amount. The Fruit Cocktailround opens a random amount of spaces, removes the worms and you receive your bonus. A wisecracking tomato provides a slice of humor in this game.

3) Swampland: Slot players in Mississippi and Louisiana love this bayou/swamp themed game. It features button only play (which most people prefer), incredibly graphics and bonus rounds that happen much more than on most multi-line video slots. Three or more frog symbols trigger a second screen bonus. Using the panel buttons, the player selects a lily pad that the frog jumps onto while trying to avoid the jaws of a hungry alligator. This leap-frogging continues as you select different lily pads, each revealing a bonus amount or until the lunging gater successfully snags his prey. Up to 10,000 coins times the line bet can be won on this 9 line slot--if you don't get i>boggeddown.

4) Triple Lucky 7s: This game combines the multiple 7's paytable of the Red, White & Blue style program with the wild symbol Triple Diamonds program for a potential big-money payout. There are six separate 7's win combos on a screen that throws 7's at you from every direction. The Triple Lucky 7's wild symbol appearing once in a winning combination triples the jackpot, two of them equal 9X winnings and three wins the top jackpot of 4000 for the two coin version--6000 for the three coin slot with a max. bet. Makes you glad you learned your multi-plication tables, yes?

See ya soon with #12.
