Went to Shreveport with two guys who love the slots. One of them got the other as he didn't understand why is 3 7's weren't paying off as it looked like a winner. Turns out he was trying to stretch his money and was only betting One dollar instead of the 3 dollar max for payout. Lost $25,000! He had a sense of humor about it as it beats crying so he's got a story to tell and he won't forget to max out the bets next time.
