The first time I saw the online version of the Antonio's Family T1 slot machine I was a little taken back. The graphics were a little bit clunky and there were several options in the reels. However, after hitting the 'Play' button I was offered a choice of three different reels to play. Being a novices at online slots I knew that this was a good thing and that there were less variables for me to track. I was right! After selecting the 'Play' option on the machine I immediately noticed that the reels had symbols on them. I thought to myself that it might be an option to switch from regular slots to coins only reels. Upon further inspection I discovered that when you click on the symbol and push the reels they spin. Upon seeing this I quickly got excited because this was the first time I had seen this feature on an Antonio's Family T1 slot machine. The second time I saw the online version I was even more taken back by the flashy graphics and the impressive animation. Upon starting the machine up I was presented with a choice of either a red or black jackpot. Upon selecting the jackpot I was offered about a hundred thousand dollars in prize money. This is where my excitement had really started to kick in; I knew that with just a few minutes I was going to be the big winner! As I began to play the machine I was excited to see that there were actually icons for the jackpots. I clicked on the jackpot icon which displayed a number that I knew was going to pay out a lot of money. Upon hitting the play button I was immediately confronted with the first three icons. These three displayed the amount of money that I currently had on the reels plus the amount of money that I owed on the first reels. The icons changed every time I clicked them, until I finally got to the third icon, which was a symbol of the amount of money that I had on the reels. At this point I knew that I was now going to be able to win the big jackpot that I had been waiting for all day. The machine however, did not have a winning limit. I immediately placed a bet on a red number and I was not disappointed when the game finally started. I was very pleased to notice that there were only three icons on the reels at this point. I figured that there was no need for me to keep playing as I was already paying attention to the icons on the other reels. I began to count the seconds before the jackpot would appear on the screen. After eleven seconds I noticed that the payoff amount was actually a red number that appeared on the screen. With this I quickly turned my back on the machine, stepped away from it, and began to think about my options. It didn't take long for the reels to stop running and the payout amounts begin accumulating on the monitor in front of me. My initial thought was that I might have made a mistake, but as I was counting the seconds, I saw that I was incorrect. I was astonished to see that the machine was still paying out, so I took a moment to calm myself down and wait for the machine to pay out. This was when I noticed that I had actually gotten another payout on an earlier reels! After I was able to get over the fact that I had just lost two reels on an earlier machine, I began to analyze what I had just seen. The chances of winning on these reels were pretty low, but the fact that I was able to double my winnings on an 'easy' machine convinced me that I could win. I continued to play, choosing reels that were paying out reasonably well but not extremely so. Eventually, I was able to win on the fourth reel and got an extra dollar bill. I continued to play and to study the screen, learning as I went along.
