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.”

Wild X Bonus Slots: Bang for a Buck, Bell Ringer, Top Dog, Triple Diamond Baseball, Arabian Riches

1 October 2001

More Wild Multiplier Bonus Slot versions are up for review. The slot manufacturers steadily introduce new slot versions and I gladly present the latest choices for slot players. Since returning from the Gaming Expo in Las Vegas and viewing the new and future versions, there is much to keep us busy. Therefore I will continue to inform here, and via the Slots Report.

Wild X Bonus slots look like basic slots with three reels, but with plus, plus major bonuses usually activated by the third reel/coin.

1. Bang for a Buck: thus the wild symbol for the top box bonus game. These versions offer a wild color scheme with a bundle of dynamite sticks surrounding the bonus box. No chance of missing the location of this multiplier/wild slot. The lucky 7's will pay with certain alignments but even more with a wild symbol or two and a chance of 2X, 3X, 5X or 10X multiplier. A bit of skill is involved when the flashing stops at Lose ½ or Play Again where you choose to take the win or try again. Choose try again and your gamble can find you at 'busted' getting zilch or other choice-losing ½ the bonus jackpot. This version is for risk-taking players with a chance at the bonus round about every 26 spins. Will you take the gamble for a 20,000 coin top jackpot?

2. Bell Ringer: Ballys wants you to 'ring that bell' to the top jackpot. A horse symbol is wild among the 7's while three wilds up wins the top jackpot. The 'bell ringer' symbol on third reel activates the bonus game of a light shooting up to the top of tower for bonus bucks and maybe a double win when lit. A crink in your neck as you look up is payback for many bonus rounds. You can afford a massage after a winning session here.

3. Top Dog: with a payout every 2-3 spins, dog lovers have found their game. Fire hydrant is 'wild' and three dog houses triggers the bonus round taking you to a familiar sight-poker playing dogs. Pick one and it's poker hand to reveal bonus credits up to 2500. Also line up five dog catchers for extra bonus. Top scatter award is 1250 coins. Come on Fido, be good to me.

4. Triple Diamond Baseball: 'tis the season for this game. Ball players move around the diamond activated by single, double, triple and home run symbols on the third reel. Baseball players are numbered on a baseball over their head based on your line bet and these points are banked upon hitting home plate. The Home Run symbol on the payline starts a new game and your total credits are calculated. The rest of us can play this game and dream about next season while New York battles it out for the top prize.

5. Arabian Riches: another Odyssey 'high-platform' version choice. This 3-reeler bonus round sends you flying high on a magic carpet ride while granting 3 of 14 premium wishes for bonus coins, free spins and multiplied jackpots. I wonder if Steppenwolf envisioned this-'why don't you come with me little girl on a magic carpet ride...'.

Hmm...Gotta go spin some vinyl from yesteryear...bye.
