|Taking advice from your dog is not normally the best way to maximise your winnings. But for one player at Slotland.com, it seems to have paid off. |
The player, known only as Magamill, was having a lucky streak, having taken $300 from her initial $25. When she looked to see if her dog fancied a stroll or a snack, the animal stared back, as if, she says, it was imploring her to carry on. With her next $15 bet, she won $350, more than doubling her winnings.
However, she continued at the dog’s insistence. “I figured I was really ahead now and should probably quit with my $650,” she says. “But I looked down at Shelby [her dog] and this beast looks at me with those big brown eyes as if to say, ‘Keep playing, stupid!’ So, I did, next bet $15 again. Yep, you got it, two wild hearts fall down with two Jacks, and I've got $120, for sure, but if I discard the last card, I have a better chance of hitting, and yes, you got it, I hit the fifth Jack on the top line! I couldn't believe my eyes, another 375 bucks.”
Having taken such a big win, Magamill decided to quit while she was ahead, taking home nearly $1,000.
