Should I be Happy or Sad

    Got a FREE €20 Casino chip so decided to play one of the slot machine progressive jackpots.
    These are the ones that loads of casinos play into and the jackpots can run into millions.
    Played a game called "Spamalot" based on Monty Python, pretty boring stuff until I clicked 3 Bonus reels which got me into the Jackpot Level.
    6 levels of choices starting at 7 choices all the way down to 2.
    The idea is to pick one and if it's a cash amount, go forward to the next until you get to the final 2 where it's potential mega money time.
    Picked one of the 7 choices for a cash amount, got past that, next level picked one of the 6 and got another cash amount.
    Continued all the way to the final 2 :D.
    So I now had a choice to pick one of the two remaining and if I picked the correct one, I would win €1.8 million Jackpot pool :eek:, but if I picked the wrong one, I would win the "minor" jackpot pool of €450.
    Of course I picked the wrong one and ended up with a cash amount of €450 instead of the €1.8 million jackpot. :(.

    Should I be happy with the €450 I won?

    So you're up 450. Obviously there is going to be massive dissapointment at not winning the jackpot, but that's probably a 0.01% of winning. So just be grateful for the free 450:)

    Be Happy , no matter what boxes you picked in what order would of ended up with 450 , this is something I learned playing slots , had a dispute over a slot disconnecting before with a casino in the middle of a bonus round. I contacted the casino and they told me its all pre determined what you won before you do the bonus round. So any choice you make playing i irrelevant in fact on some slots you can actually refresh your main balance during the bonus round and it will show what you have won before you have picked the box.

    So don't feel too bad and enjoy your 450 well done

    You basically made 450 quid for doing nothing, be happy, don't spend it chasing what could have been
