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: Money Maze, Ducks in a Row, Jester, Pinball Deluxe, Triple Red, White & Blue

1 October 2001

We continue to advise readers about the latest multi-line slot models via BVS Update Posts.This is the second in a series of updates to assist slot players' decision-making before tackling the 'bonus slots' front at their favorite casinos.

1) Money Maze: standard reel play activates a creepy video creature known as a gargoyle through the maze as dictated by number of reel gargoyle symbol(s) on payline and number of coins wagered. Maximum bet is three coins and when the gargoyle appears, player must press spin button to determine which way figure moves. Stopping on a square with circled letter pays same as nearby number, but when highlighted bonus amount increases, Gargoyle then returns to initial position. This is a detailed game, so you may require the assistance of the Help Menu to take you 'thru the maze' .
2) Ducks in a Row: poker symbols are thrown together with five different types of ducks for a graphically rich playground vying for slot players' attention--nine-line, five reel with a possible maximum bet of 225 coins. I'm happy to report that the top jackpot lines up five of the 'female' ducks, while 'Lucky Dog', 'Duke Duck' and 'Joker Turtle' are wild also--more frequent and lesser pays, however. Three 'Wild Coins' counts as a scatter symbol for an extra reward. The name of this game is to get 'all your ducks in a row' for the top jackpot.

3) Jester: remember the court jester of the king's castle? He's here--the Jester symbol on the third reel of this slot triggers a top-box spin of 1-4 or 4-12 extra wins depending on coins played. You won't 'play the fool' with this game.

4) Pinball Deluxe: the wild symbol triples the jackpot in winning line-ups and pays 9x the jackpot if two wild symbols appear on the payline. Top jackpot is 3 wild symbols. While checking the top box of the machine, notice eight bonus buckets with a range of bonus coins plus a bonus chamber with slots marked--10, 50, 250 and 1000 coins. A nice feature for those players on a limited budget is that less than max coins can be played, however each coin will determine how many turns at the pinball game you get; e.g. 1 coin= 1 turn, 2=2 turns, 3=3 turns, etc. Watch the bouncing pinball as it moves upward towards the bonus chamber, dropping at your bonus payout, thus providing all the fun you remember from watching The Pinball Wizard.

5) Triple Red, White & Blue: this version wears you out with 17 possible winners that include combos of 7's -- mixed, red, white and blue. A nice jackpot is red, white and blue 7's in a row. The Triple Wild symbol is the multiplier with one=3x, two=9x and three as top dog prize in this generous game. For those players who like the roller-coaster ride of a game with payouts that can bring on the profits many times over, step right up.

We will return soon with more newer multi-line versions for you to explore.
