Biggest Gambling Win

Thu Mar 09, 2006 3:07 pm

Excluding slot machines, what is the most you have won playing a table game/sporting event in a casino? For me, I was in Atlantic City and I won about $400 bucks playing craps. I left the craps table and with a couple of hundred dollar chips burning a hole in my pocket, went to the roulette table. Bear in mind I was drunk, so I thought I was big s***. I split the zero-double zero with a black chip and it hit. I walked away with $1700. Never been close to duplicating that feat again...

It's on my wall

12 July 2002, NZ Metro Harness, Race 1

#6 Camway $92.30/$20.55
#3 Clinical Chance $12.95
#13 Bukene $11.95

I took a $1 box trifecta (that's 1st, 2nd and 3rd places) on those 3 horses costing $12. Final win was a grand total of $ 21,524.25.

Haven't bet on a horse since !

Late 2004 at the Venetian in Vegas I made $33K in one evening of blackjack. Early 2005 at the same hotel I made $17K in two hours of play in blackjack. I've taken close to $95K from that hotel in the past 3 years - hence all the free rooms, blackjack, craps and roulette tournament invites I can handle  Smile

I know you said "except slots", but I must say I hit a $5,000 jackpot at the MGM in Vegas a couple years back. That was a blast!

My biggest non-slot win was a $500.00 pot when I got dragged to a bingo game. I didn't even want to be there . . . until I won that pot of course!  bigthumbsup

November 2004 at the Sahara in Vegas I hit a quarter WOF for $450.00 with a triple, triple, red seven. Afew drinks later I hit $200.00 back to back on a Black Bow tie I think it was. 7 drinks later I hit a quarter triple diamond for the jackpot of $1,000.00. With the wife playing behind me I put in 3 quarters and turned to her and hit the spin reels. She said I hit....... I said I did not hit anyone LOL...She said turn around! Yep 3 triple diamonds. We had a great run that night between us. We lost nothing and took the slots for over $3,000.00.

When I lived in Monaco I scored 10,000 euros one evening in the casino. I felt like James Bond!

Still, I certainly don't gamble as a habit.

So I guess winning $250 by coming in first place in a daily slot tournament @ The Riveria doesn't count.

I've never really what I called had a big win at the tables as I usually take a set amount of money and play until I either double it or lose it all.

Craps: Turned $40 into $160 (Hitting a $5 Yo bet helped and a couple of place bets).

Blackjack: Turned $60 into $160. This was in one of three sessions I had at the Stardust over the course of that day. Between the three sessions, I won around $300.

I was wondering how you go those comps. I figured it involved doing some certain favors to the right people ( Wink ), as you're the first person I've actually heard of taking the Venetian for any amount of scratch. I lost $90 there in less than 10 minutes at the craps table and hightailed it.

I won $4500 on a $5 "Fourth of July" slot machine a few years ago. Two years ago, I won $3550 on a $25 "Double Diamond" slot machine.

My mom won $75,000 on a $5 scratch-off ticket in 1999.

Holy shit!!! That's a hell of the trifecta. You must have taken pretty much all of the money in the pool!! How did you pick those horses?
