Recommended Posts

What is the largest winnings for a group Slot Pull that you've participated in?  The ones I've done have pretty much broke even...

The organizer gets the points.  Last cruise we made our money back and won an additional whopping $18.00 per person.  Woo Hoo…..but was soooooo much fun!

I've always wondered who gets the points🤔

 

That has been a major topic of discussion on many a slot pull.  On one rollcall, someone joined very late and said they would help with the already planned and scheduled slot pull.  They then posted their rules including the fact that her sea pass or the sea pass of the woman who had scheduled it were going to be the only ones allowed to be in the machine.  Did not go over well at all.

Thanks, I can see it getting tense

Thanks. I participated in one once and knew nothing about points. Casino's really aren't my thing. The people that put this together had about 50 people to deal with so I'm sure they deserved any points for all their work.

It can be quite lucrative

If they get the points then they should also agree to get the 1099G if a big one hits. Let them claim and pay the taxes.

Cash me out 😁

The Casino Royale terms and conditions specify that an individual cannot earn points on anyone else’s play. All the slot pulls I’ve been involved with state that no cards can be inserted in the machine.

On Jewel (Panama Canal), I think there were only about 6 or 8 of us. One of the participants hit $1000 on the Wheel of Fortune machine and we cashed out with about $240 each. Best slot pull ever!!!! :classic_biggrin:

The organizers do all the work and yes they get the points for doing it. I have to keep a list of people, cabin numbers, print out tickets, collect the cash, call people up, break up the cash in even bundles & chase people down for the next 2-3 days at their cabin so I could pay them....so yes, I have earned whatever points I get. I have organized them many times and if I had someone complain about it on the roll call I would just tell them not to play....easy peasy. It’s not sponsored by the cruise line so I can have anyone play/or not play I want. 

Sounds like you had a really fun bunch of people on that roll call 🙄

In answer to OP’s question on amounts, we had a $2000 win on Wheel of fortune a few years back. We had a Canadian passport holder claim the winnings tax free.

As I said before, the woman jumped on the rollcall late and took control of an already planned slot pull.  She wanted the points, plain and simple.  Tickets are not needed for a slot pull, have never had cash collected for a slot pull either, all players put their money into the machine when they sit down.  If you aren't there at the end, you don't get paid.  Very simple.  Yes, we did have a fun group of people on that roll call.  The point grabbing lady was only seen at the slot pull and never anywhere else.  🙄

I've run many a Slot Pull, but the way you describe, you seem to make a meal out of it.  There's no way I would chase people down for 2-3 days.  I tell them up front, if they are not around for the distribution of funds at the end, it automatically goes into my wine fund.  🍷

When you have 70-80 people like I have it’s easier to do  numbered tickets otherwise you call the name Steven 4 people try to jam in the front of the machine so yeah it just just depends on how many people are playing . I have never had all the people put the money in the machine one by one you pay all the money goes in one shot and everybody gets their spins.

Here is how the slot pull from my cruise coming up is going to work (I am not the organizer)

 

SLOT PULL - $21 per person, exact change, please.  Day 2, October 18th, 11am, meet near the bar.  Look for *******.  The plan is to play on a $1 Wheel of Fortune machine, for $7 a spin, so we are eligible for the Gold Spin.  Bring your Luck along! 


- - SLOT PULL RULES –
- Each participant will pay a predetermined amount ($21.00 for this slot pull).
- a numbered chip will be picked to determine pull order - * See also below.
- we will pick a machine with an easily divisible option for determining number of pulls per person.
- all money is loaded into the machine.
- once the first pull is made, no others can join in; the game is considered closed.
- each person will have the same number of pulls at the slot machine. 
- all money is left in the machine until the last person has had their turn. 
- after each pull the amount is recorded. 
- after the last person has taken their turn, the slot pull is over. 
- the money left in the machine is distributed equally to the participants, down to the nearest Dollar. 
- any remaining change will be considered a “top winner pot” and will be given to the player who won the most money on their combined spins.
*Starting with the lowest numbered chip picked, the person will have the option to place their sea-pass into the selected slot machine and will earn the casino points. This option will continue in sequence until a participant opts to place their sea-pass in the machine. If there is a large win, the person with their sea-pass in the machine could be responsible for income tax implications

Yeah I have seen that disclaimer in the fine print. I would not risk it myself. 

 

Hey new avatar? Bella was better. 🙂

I wonder what would happen in Vegas if someone organized a slot pull and put their own card in a machine?
