This week, the wife and I took a mini-vacation to the Jersey shore.  As expected it rained for one of the days, we cannot seem to avoid that pesky weather.  Anyway, we ended up going to the new Revel casino one of the nights.  It was pretty nice, considering most of the other casinos are rather old.

I'm not much of a gambler.  The wife enjoys the table games.  Me, I just like to wander around and look at all of the slot machines.  I'm all about finding an interesting looking slot machine and getting as much time out of it as I can for $20.  During my exploration I came across something unexpected, a Princess Bride themed slot machine!

Surely, this had to be a sign.  I had been in search of a Back to the Future slot machine which I heard existed but it was not to be.  Instead I parked myself in front of the Princess Bride machine.  It was a penny slot, but not really.  The minimum bet was 30 cents.

Luck was with me that night, at one point I was up to $624 from my initial $20!  I won a couple $300 mini-jackpots and had started to bet $2 per spin.  Eventually I hit a losing streak and was down to $525 when I decided to call it a night.  So after dinner we left AC ahead, which is always a nice way to end an evening.

Maybe the winnings will go towards an XBox One :)
