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: Good Times, Life of Luxury, Bonus Spin 5 Times Pay, Something for Nothing, Bugsy

1 October 2001

After scouring this country and Canada searching for the best casino selections, we are back to some Wild Multiplier Bonus Slot versions awaiting a review. As you remember, these slots look like basic slots with three reels, but with plus, plus major bonuses. Wild symbols, (usually in the name of the slot version), are scattered about; multipliers, (2x, 5x, 10x pay+) as an added bonus option; and free spins that result in additional payouts. These versions also offer frequent hits/payouts; often every second spin, unlike basic slots. Generally the payout for wild symbols is activated by the third coin. Five and nine paylines and ample pay tables are available with multiple jackpots that you have come to expect from bonus video slots.

1) Good Times: IGT offers 3 varied winning 7’s combos in this version and a ‘Good Times Pays’ wild symbol. The jackpot multiplier works in tiers from 1X/2X to the top level of 12X/144X. The real fun begins after a multiplied jackpot is paid, then the next Times Pay payout is selected randomly and not necessarily the lowest pay. While the dollar players require a larger bankroll for this one, the payout multipliers make for a ‘roller coaster ride of X Good Times Pays profits’.

2) Life of Luxury: Dawwwlings -- shall we move over to the slot that offers red sports cars, yachts, my favorite beverage--champagne, lobsters, gold coins and that, must-have gift of diamonds. All these ‘necessities’ have more bonus features of multipliers, free spins and nine lines of ‘rich’ graphics. Jazz sounds, champagne and diamonds sparkling--I deserve this slot.

3) Bonus Spin 5 Times Pay: This 5X pay version finds you searching for that 5 times pay wild or two of them for 25 times pay. At third coin, there is a bonus spin trigger that takes you to a huge reel beside a six-row grid with five jackpot symbols per row. While the bonus $$ add up, there are more bonus payouts for each row of like symbols completed. When all 30 blocks are filled a ‘collect’ symbol will count your winnings. This bonus feature occurs approx. every 80 coins. Add this to game credits and this version turns out to be a winner.

4) Something for Nothing: really! Standard fruit, and bell symbols dot this nine payline slot. Toss in some 7 combos, Jackpot Coin and Wild Fruit symbols and approx. every 60 spins on a losing bet, the player gets a chance at the ‘something for nothing’ bonus. Amounts randomly selected from 3-40X based of your bet appear on the credit meter. The hits just keep on coming in between bonus rounds and a generous pay table. The search is on for ‘losing’ combos -- you know what they look like -- right? Cash in on those losers with this fun Williams version

5) Bugsy: Aristocrat introduces some cops and robbers characters with a tommy gun, gangster moll, thug and poker symbols strewn about. Scatter pay symbols of Bugsy, the green gangster and Lou the detective add to the chase and free spin credits mount. This unique version presents the player with an animated story featuring the antics of the two main characters. And the quest for bucks is on.

Until next time when the Wild Bonus Chase continues.
