I get a lot of questions from fans, and while we answer a question every day in You Asked!, sometimes I get questions that don’t make sense for a dedicated post. For those, we’ll have these occasional round-ups where I can answer some of your questions about me!
How do you generally pick a machine to play?
It’s whatever catches my eye. It could the artwork, the colors, the jackpot amounts – or what I saw a fellow Rudies member win on!
Do you get stressed out after losing a lot of money?
I’m become pretty numb over the years to the value of money, which is a good thing and a bad thing.When I used to be crushed after losing $5,000 over a weekend, it’s more like $25,000 now. That said, my entertainment budget has increased, so I’m always careful with my money and don’t spend outside of that. Bills come first, entertainment second!
If you won a million dollars on one of the high limit slots, would you still work?
Absolutely I would. I love my job, and it would be out of character for me to stop based on a big win. Would I gamble more? Perhaps.
How in the world do you do your taxes?
I did them the first year. And have relied on my accountant ever since. It’s not too complicated realLy for a gambler, but with a staff of 10 people and hundreds of jackpots, invoices etc, it would be a headache for sure.
How often do you actually gamble?
3-6 days a week. Usually 2 days I film solid in a casino, and 1 day I play online slot. If i’m on a property for events, then my play expands further.
How long do you think you will play slots? Will you do more acting?
I do miss acting. It was always my passion – but it was entertaining a large audience that I desired. So for now, I’m more than content. I have no plans of slowing down my slot channel, however there will be many variations and changes as I like to keep it fresh and not get stale. Maybe in retirement I’ll get back into it.
How do you decide when it’s time to change machines?
I try to put in as much as I wish to lose. $100 bill, or $1,000 in tickets. Since every spin is unique from one to the next, and since I recognize that there is no such thing as a hot or cold machine (it’s all about the microsecond you press SPIN that determines the RNG outcome), I’m not swayed by a losing streak. But to keep my spirits up, it’s good to move when I start to feel the pressure of a loss.
What size shoe do you wear?
LOL, I wear size 13 – which is not as uncommon as it was when I was a child. Most brands would only make up to size 12, but it has become more frequent to get 13’s now. I’ve now got a shoe obsession and am loving collecting them…which is why I assume you’re asking haha.
