Counting on slots at a casino is rarely a wise decision.

Hint 1

Awaiting proper solve path

Hint 2

Awaiting proper solve path


Start by looking up Playing Card Nicknames.

Cowboy = King
Hen = Queen
Hook = Jack
Clover = Ace of Clubs
Snowman = 8
Boat = 4

Translating the symbols on the slot machine results in the following cards:

8 4 K A 4

Notice the "BAR"s on the slot machine and the "Counting" clue.

Letters can be assigned numbers 1 through 26 based on their position in the alphabet. When adding two numbers to get 26 letters, however, you only need the values 1 through 13. Without a zero, however, you need to be able to sum negative numbers as well, since 1 + 1 = 2 (B) misses the letter A. So, when converting letters to numbers, for A through M we count the letters from the beginning of the alphabet; for the letters N through Z we count from the end of the alphabet for negative numbers. So:

A = 1, J = 10, K = 11, (ZYXWVUTSR are 9 letters), Q = -10

    8   4  11   1   4
   11  10 -10  10   1
  --- --- --- --- --- ("---" = BAR)
   19  14   1  11   5
