On a rainy evening, after dinner at the pub, there's only so much reading and playing on the web that one can do.
So we go down to the pokie room.
Slide a small bill into a machine. (Queen of the Nile.) Talk to it. Hug it. Get the three pyramids, which give free games. Get three pyramids during the free games. Twice. In this particular game, Cleopatra is the substitute image, the one who fills in and gets three, four, five of a symbol, for a win. Only during the free games, the point is to actually touch the Cleopatra image - she spins - you get either an amount of money added to your total, or a symbol for the "minor" or "major" jackpot.
Well, with 30 free games, guess who FINALLY won the minor jackpot? In addition to the normal free game wins!!!!!
Wooooohooooooooooooooooo!!!!!! (This is why we like Aussie pokies!)
And my FAVORITE part is when the machine starts throwing money on the screen, fountains of virtual coins bouncing around!!!!!! Because those coins represent real money that goes into our pockets, and pays for fun splurges! YAY!!!!!
