I once won $2000 at the Blackjack tables at Treasure Island. The best I could say about getting ahead is "to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, and know when to run."

I won 50 bucks on the first quarter I dropped into a slot machince at the Showboat. I was laughing myself silly when all those quarters came out. Also, I always do the downtown casinos. I'd stay away from the strip casinos. Downtown is more liberal in payouts. Regards.

This is 100% true, but you may not believe it. I went to Vegas when I first turned 21 and found that after a few hours I was completely addicted to Blackjack and slot machines. I was to come back home two full days later and I spent all my $500 the first night and I walked around the casinos at around 3:00am with not even $1 on me feeling so depressed and confused, wondering how I was to have any fun or eat for that matter. I think I was in the MGM at this time and had a feeling to go to the Luxor, so I walked there and was wandering around the casino with my head down and there on the ground was four $100 bills under a guy at the Blackjack table. I walked over stealthy out of desperation and tried to grab it and walk away but as I came up the dealer spotted me and asked me what I was doing. I said I found this $400 and wanted to know who lost it. The guy that was gambling was asian and couldn't speak english so I asked him if it was his and he shook his head no, not knowing what I just said and he responded in Chinese or something and I started walking away and nobody said anything so I kept going with my heart about to explode with adrenaline and pure happiness. Anyway, I got the $400 and went back to the hotel room and slept for around 2 hours and began gambling again for two straight days and ended up broke when I left.

Actually once I won 30 bucks playing Keno...
It was breakfast, and most hotels there have Keno right at the table, with cards there and number boards throughout the resturant, so I picked 10 numbers, gave my dad a couple of bucks so he could pay the lady and make it legal, a few minutes later the results came in and I had 6 of 10 numbers and I won 30 bucks that way...I was only 10 at the time hehe.
