Anyone recently off NCL Escape who played alot of slots?

Recommended Posts

If so...do they have "Lock it Link" type games?  My wife hit a Grand jackpot on one of those games about 7-8 months ago at a local casino here in Long Island, and has since become addicted to these games.  She said she tried searching for a list of slot machines on the Escape online, but couldn't find anything.  So figured I would ask on here

Think she tried that and all the videos were 6 months plus ago.   If not, no biggie, there's tons of slots to play.  But after she hit a jackpot, those are like her games (lol like she would ever do that again!)

I would think because they are on the gem they would also be on the escape

Been a bit, but I seem to remember those Lock it Links on the big NCL ships from my last couple of cruises.  I wouldn't worry about it, think they will be there!

Thanks all...and if my wife hits another Grand jackpot, I might wind up giving up tables for them as well!

It must have been quite the jackpot lol 🙂

I'd be wondering the same thing. I won on Quick Hits and those machines became my "go to" machines, but they haven't paid out since 😞

Just under $17k at Jakes 58.  Picture of her win is on their facebook page some place in the "jackpots" section.  Needless to say, she gets the royal treatment from them whenever we go back lol

In my limited times playing these games...they are ALOT of fun if you're getting the bonuses.  But can have really long stretches of just nothing that can be costly.

I have played machines like that here on the land casinos--its like they almost cycle.--win free spins win free spins and then lose ,lose etc. But looking forward to playing them. Last year on Escape I played the Chinese baby games and hit for a jackpot over $3000. It was great. Looking forward t having some fun again.

My family lives about 15 minutes from Jakes 58 I’ve been there once. My nephew hit $40,000 a few months ago there

Fun!  Yes the Escape has Lock it links.  Great news about the jackpot win at Jakes.  We rarely go there but it does seem like I walk out with money whenever we do. 
Hope your wife wins another jackpot!

Breakaway has them too,

 Just off the ship earlier this week and there were lots of handpays on the Asian games.  The first night a guy hit over 32,000 on 88 Fortunes with a 88cent bet!

There was a bank of 4 of the Lock it Link games.  And the same 4, very loud, drunk and obnoxious women seemed to sit there all day and night, betting 50 cents a spin, taking turns spinning, and hollering anytime they would get 2 hearts.  I think my wife considered throwing them over board a dozen times or so.  She did get on a few times, and did ok, but nothing big.  

 

Overall though the casino treated us well.  I play more tables than slots and overall was up about $500-600 from the tables.  My wife played slots all week and was up a few hundred as well.  

 

And then the last night, around 1 am, after she was sound asleep, and the casino was nearly empty, I sat down at a cash money grab machine (or whatever the actual name is) and hit this.  Best part, by time they paid me, was so late I didn't give any of it back.  So I think overall, we walked off the Escape + $4500-5000

 

(sorry for the off center pic...was late and I was pretty intoxicated.  But this was on the $1 machines behind the black jack tables near the casino cage)
