Slot Moments: NJ Slot Guy Lands Massive Payback on Mechanical Reels

During a recent Facebook live, NJ Slot Guy experienced some old school mechanical reel magic. NJ Slot Guy started the video with $200 in Triple Jackpot Gems Deluxe, committed to $9 spins, and with the help of some nudging wilds went on one heck of a (profitable) ride. 

Like some other mechanical reels, this machine features nudging symbols that have arrows that indicate which way the symbol is going to move once a spin concludes. These roaming symbols offer huge potential when it comes to landing one of the five progressives Triple Jackpot Gems Deluxe has to offer. 

Before landing some of the nudging symbols, NJ Slot Guy’s run kicked off with a sizable line hit of two triple sevens against a 3x wild. This hits around the 2:38 minute mark. The $9 spin resulted in a linehit win of $220, giving NJ more “ammo” as he likes to call it. 

Not even a minute later, NJ won his first progressive on the machine with the help of nudging symbols. He already had a red wild locked in on the first and third reels, with the middle reel poised to nudge into place resulting in an impressive win just over $2,000. The beautiful thing about this win was the placement of that second reel nudging wild. The symbol was positioned to nudge up one more time, earning NJ the same progressive, this time worth about $1,500 (it reset after the original win). Including some smaller line hits while the symbols were nudging around, the total win of the spin was $3,560. 

Over the course of five minutes, NJ Slot Guy’s credits in the machine went from $200 to an impressive $3,894. Keeping in mind that he was betting $9 a pull, that is a pretty impressive, and lucky, run. Throughout the remainder of the video, NJ’s luck continued not only on Triple Jackpot Gem Deluxe, but on Autumn Moon while he was waiting to get paid out. You can watch the full video here!
