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: Spell Binder, Money Bars, 2nd Chance 7's, Three Wishes, On the Money

1 October 2001

Let's begin another expedition for newer bonus slots with this latest post #8.

1) Spell Binder: Combine Triple Diamond wild symbols and basic Triple Red, White & Blue for a 'double landing' and get 9X return. The magician's hat on the third reel takes you up the bonus ladder with two scales. Choose whether the number placed on the left scale will be higher or lower than the hidden number on the right side scale. Keep those correct answers coming, gather bonus amounts and when you put together a string of 15 correct, you've hit the top jackpot. With ample pay schedule and bonus rounds, this slot will keep you 'under its spell'.

2) Money Bars: Scattered about, across reels, in rows, and more than three translates into more $$. The third coin sets up the Money Bar table with high payouts of 1000 coins for eight of them. Snag all nine money bars to fill all three reels and your reward is 4000 coins. Factor in three 7 combos; mixed, all blue, and all red for additional cash. Hold on--another bonus pay occurs when any 7 hits the first two reels with three Money Bars on reel three. Money, Money, Money=$$$ fun.

3) 2nd Chance 7's: VP players take note--this slot pays out $1000 at 10X the rate of a Royal Flush. Come on over to this dual bonus game where any two 7's plus another reel icon or blank is worth a second chance round. A 'mystery bonus' amount is paid if you do not line up the third 7 in four attempts, however, if you do, you are paid per pay table. Another bonus round utilizes a wild symbol/multiplier of up to 5X. Other versions of this game utilize wild 'Superbars' or 'Fruit' symbols. Definitely worth the search to locate any of these versions.

4) Three Wishes: A genie, elephant and magic carpet welcome the player into an Arabian Nights scene. As the first 20 payline slot offered in Nevada, the combos are many, plus the Genie symbol is wild. The 'Magic Lamp Bonus' is set off by three scatter-pay Genies where you are presented with 10 coins from which 3 wishes are granted. After the first one, you are up against a Take or Risk with next wish. Do you take the first bonus or risk it all? Tip: If bonus $$ is high, tell Genie--thanks, but no thanks, and off you ride with a wish come true.

5) On the Money: Three reels plus a larger spinner is imbedded in the middle of this machine. For those, like me, who like 'nudge' games, this feature presents itself when two jackpot symbols land on the payline and the winner is up or below. With just a little nudge, you are a winner every time at this slot. Three 'On the Money' icons can produce up to three free spins on the fourth reel, 'nudge' included and a special Money Bag symbol gathers $1000 bonus. This top choice machine offers a high hit frequency and a generous pay table--right on the money!

A Reminder: 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 hunt' expeditions. Happy Hunting!
