None. I don't know that I'd feel too swell about getting rich that way anyway. That's why I don't play lotto (that and I'd like to keep my money).

Last Tuesday night after getting back from the bar, me and a couple friends went to the riverboats in the Quad Cities. We went to the Isle of Capri Casino first but their Roulette table was closed so we drove a little further down the mighty Mississippi River to the Rythym City Casino and found their roulette table still open. Because I lost my ass the last time I went gambling, all I brought was $40 cash and my ID. I started with 20 one-dollar chips and ended up with 39 after we were through. I gave my friend who's car we went in $2 in gas and I blew $2 in the slot machines right after cashing in the chips. So I got away with $15. Didn't get home that night until 5:50am though!

The last time I went before that I lost my ass at the Roulette table, this was at Isle of Capri. I walked out of the casino $89 down. Playing the slots briefly at the end made up for about $20 of the Roulette losses. I don't see that as a total loss though. We were there for three hours that night and there is definate entertainment value there. It is a lot of fun because there is a small chance that you will win money.

Lifetime at gambling I'm about $165 down roughly.

Spent my birthday last month at a local casino. I started with 12.50 EUR, determined to leave as soon as that money was gone. I then played roulette with 2.50 EUR chips on red/black/pair/impair/passe/manque - I was down to 5 EUR, but then I had gained 7.50 EUR. On the way out I passed a table where there had been red six times in a row - I decided to put all my gains on black - and won. Hence I had gained 15 EUR Big grin.

As a deprived Californian 19-year old, I've only gambled twice.

Once I went to Cache Creek (indian reservation near Sacramento) for my friend's 18th bday... lost about $40 that I expected to lose there, no big deal. Errr... I should say I won -$40 or ($40) given your question  Smile

Last summer I went with some friends to Montreal, a swank town for deprived American youngsters like ourselves. At the city casino, I won $40 Canadienne. Sacrebleu! But I didn't feel like a winner.

Lessons learned:

  • I'm moving to Canada (pysch!!)
  • Gambling sucks, whether you win or lose.
  • Responding to a gambling post on airliners.net while taking a short break from my DAMN DIRTY term paper really puts things into perspective

    A very deprived
  • SFO

    Now I remember what the non_av forum was like.

    Most I ever won at one time-and mind you, I rarely ever get to gamble, was last August in DSM at the Horse Race track there. I was playing nickle slots, and was betting like $1.25 every pull, and I got $108 on one pull! Not a fortune, but I did end up ahead that night, for the first time ever!!  Big thumbs up

    My best trip was in Puerto Rico. Won $225 at the craps table in a very short time. That made up for about $150 I lost on the cruise ship the day before. So overall, up $75 in craps that week. (Not a lot of money in that game)

    Everywhere else I'm usually within $50 either way.

    But worst loss was at Soaring Eagle in Michigan. I lost $500 at the craps table

    Won $3000 + playing Baccarat, but lost a lot of it too (Trump Casino in Indiana) and $1000 or so playing roulette (MGM Grand in Vegas).

    I won about $100 on a slot machine...a lot for me considering I'm really not a gambler.

    Alpha 1-

    You went to 'Meadows eh? I've never been there because they only have slots. Did you know that place is the only county-government-owned gambling facility in the US?

    What were you in DSM for?
