I am with you Dennis. I like to chase the silver. Most of the conversations I have with new folks involves the exposition regarding the silver content (reds vs blues vs clears, all leading to a $300). Some new folks catch on quick and catch the silver bug, but others, honestly, could give a damn and just want a token.
I will definitely play the machines when I get down there and chase the varieties and the gold plate, but, when the silver hits the machine, lookout!!
