I have yet to win an orange gun on the slots. Only got triple-Marcus once (purple rocket launcher), and a few triple-legs that gave some decent blue guns. I was farming Michael Mamaril for a while because he was giving up some pretty good blue guns but he's pretty much disappeared after a certain mission.
My friends and I gambled as a group. So every time we won Eridium it would be shared by everybody, got more for our money basically. I maxed out all the SDUs before I turned Level 22.
I had 8 golden keys so I ended up using one on the chest. Got a pretty good burst-fire purple sniper and a high damage/high ROF/low recoil purple SMG.
I just found out about a developer's chest in the Tundra map, gonna be farming that for more purple loot.
