With more than seven years of recording slot machine content for his various social media profiles, Brian Christopher has filmed thousands of hours of video. Of course, not all are winners, but some are exceptionally good, and then there’s the ones that set new highs.
While there may be bigger wins than some of those seen here, each of these videos have at various points been his biggest casino win of all time. With that in mind, let’s go through Brian’s biggest wins over the lifetime of his channel.
The Original: Cleopatra II
One of Brian’s first videos to capture attention was his $9 bet on Cleopatra II. With just $100 in, he got the bonus, a big deal, given the level of difficulty it is to get that bonus. While he was only betting 9 lines on a 20-line game, since the game triggers the bonus on scatter and not on a line, it opened the door to potential success.
With Cleopatra II, the game increases the multiplier on each spin of the free spins. The more free spins you have, the higher the multiplier can go. A pick screen establishes how many spins you get, and how many you’ll get on each retrigger. In the case of this video, Brian picks 12, the best option available.
Spin 10, he manages a retrigger, adding 12 more spins. His very next spin he gets a 5 of a kind, which alone puts him at jackpot handpay territory. After a couple of more hits, spin 18 yields a rarity – a second retrigger. Now the spin count is going to go to 36 spins, and therefore a 36x multiplier.
While the remainder of the bonus didn’t yield anything quite as exciting as the five of a kind earlier on, the sheer size of the multiplier made small hits much bigger, and drove the total bonus up to more than 800x his wager, a phenomenal outcome at any bet, but particularly sweet on a $9 bet.
The Emotional Comeback: Wheel of Fortune
In 2018, Brian’s channel was shut down unexpectedly by YouTube, just ahead of a multi-week tour of a number of East Coast casinos. Hours before his first stop, his channel was restored, leading to this live stream and one of the most epic moments of the channel.
Brian was already up for the night playing at Seneca Niagara when he decided to slide over to the $25 Wheel of Fortune machines after some Top Dollar at the same denomination. At 2 credits per spin to be eligible for the wheel, that was a massive $50 bet per spin.
With $1000 in the machine, Brian lands a $1,000 line hit, keeping things going. He was determined to get a wheel spin or cash out at break even, so that was the goal.
Shortly thereafter, he got the wheel spin. He reminded us all – it’s all about timing. The wheel outcome is determined when you press the spin button. He talked through the options, held on for a moment, and then hit spin… and landed on $10,000. He was so sure that it wasn’t going to land on $10,000, he kept talking like it was going to spin past the wedge, until it didn’t.
To go from no channel to the biggest win on the channel was a huge deal at the time, and the raw emotion was caught live! The next 20 minutes, riding down from that massive win, is so unique and well worth a view.
100,000 Subs: Triple Double Red Hot Strike
Later the same summer he released his new high water mark, which out of all of these videos was his largest win as a multiple of his bet, more than 1,000x his wager! (This isn’t the highest multiple of his bet – that would be an insane 80 cent bet yielding a Grand jackpot during a Rudies livestream.)
This game is about as simple as it gets – $5 denomination, two credits, single line. So Brian was doing $10 spins for this particular one.
Some symbols have double or triple on them, which will do exactly that when a line pay is accomplished. Getting the red sevens are a ticket to an instant jackpot handpay on the game, but doubles or triples will bump up the pay even further.
In Brian’s case, a triple red 7, a red 7 and a triple red 7 yielded a total win of $11,250, 1,125x his bet and for more than two years his biggest win of all time.
Trained to Win: Cannonball Express
Cannonball Express is a game found today primarily in Washington; it’s an Ainsworth game that used to be in more casinos but over time have disappeared, but Washington casinos still have it as part of their unique set of games.
This was a $20 bet that delivered massively, thanks in no small part to two massive retriggers. The game starts with 10 spins, and right away he managed a three-symbol retrigger for five more spins. But what can really amp up the retriggers: Getting more symbols, and getting multipliers.
On his second to last spin, he got a five of a kind retrigger with a 3x multiplier. 5 symbols pays $2000 on his bet, and the x3 made it $6,000. On top of that, he got 5 more spins!
Then, with two spins remaining, he managed the five symbol trigger gain, this time with a 2x multiplier, for another $4,000.
Along with other line hits and pays, the bonus was worth $11,296 – over 550x his bet.
First High Limit Major: Huff N’ Puff
Brian’s next high water mark was set on a fan favorite, Huff N’ Puff. Playing in the high limit room at Park MGM in Las Vegas, he got a bonus on 50 cent denomination and a $25 spin.
In the bonus, earned by landing 6 construction hats, hats landing on the same space will upgrade from a straw house to a stick house, and finally to a mansion (brick house).
During the bonus Brian got a hat to land on the same space six times – after the third time you’re awarded 10x your bet, which in this case yielded a healthy $750 on its own.
For the final reveal, he only had two mansions, but one of them managed to flip a major jackpot, worth more than $13,000! The final bonus total of $15,141.62 would stand as his highest win for almost a year, and more than 600x his bet!
Breaking $20,000: The Dollar Storm Bonus
It was on a 5 line, $50 bet on $2 denomination of Egyptian Jewels in the Brian Christopher Slots at Plaza area that finally moved Brian forward again after a significant wait.
On this game, wilds appear on the second through fifth reels, but during the free spins those wilds also take on a 2x multiplier. Getting four wilds on a line therefore deliver a 16x multiplier, which on just about any symbol makes the pays quite sizable.
With two lines out of five being five of a kinds, and one yielding the four multipliers, this yielded $20,000 on a single spin.
The final total of $20,180 would be his biggest win for some time.
Surprise Win: The Dragon Link Random Major
As long as Lightning Link and Dragon Link have been out there, there’s still a lot of players who don’t realize that the Major and Grand jackpots can be awarded at random. Because of the unusual nature of how it plays out, it’s always an amazing surprise when it happens.
This too, was caught during one of Brian’s livestreams while at Yaamava’. He was inserting $100 bills, one at a time, and pressing spin at the $125 bet. This leads to a Lucky Chance Spin appearing on screen. It basically gives an 80 percent chance of getting a $125 spin ($100/$125 is 80 percent).
On one of the lucky chance spins, four balls landed (you need six for the bonus) but the bell still went off, confusing Brian. And then it appeared: Random Major Awarded for $29,089 on that $100 investment.
Back to Back: Dragon Link Strikes Again
Those lucky chance bets are no joke. This time around it wasn’t a Major, but a Minor, that managed to put him over the top.
Brian wasn’t filming videos for his channel, but was playing on the casino floor when he landed this beauty of a bonus. Like his random major, he was doing $100 Lucky Chance spins at the $125 bet level. It started out slow, but when that Minor landed, it put it into record territory. Brian was only in for about $700 when he got the bonus!
At $29,250, this was, until recently Brian’s biggest casino jackpot of all time. But it’s still only a bit over 290x his bet, meaning the odds are something bigger will be possible in the future.
The Latest: Lightning Dollar Link Delivers
The link machines have certainly been pulling their weight on this list, and his biggest of all time is on the latest iteration, Lightning Dollar Link. During a video where he’s playing $1,000 on every machine in the Brian Christopher Slots at Plaza area, he takes a swing at $125 spins on Lightning Dollar Link Corrida de Toros.
It didn’t take long for both a $25,000 spot and a high limit Major to land – and that’s all he needed to break through $30,000 for the first time! The total, $31,802.33, is as of now his biggest casino win of all time. But with three new high points secured for 2023, how long will it take for the current high water mark to be toppled over?
