Casinos. big money big money big money big money
    #4485263 - 08/02/05 02:29 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I was down at Casino Niagara this weekend and won about $350 after all was said and done. Won $400 in one slot pull, the bells went off and people crowded around. The next night I was down like $110 and pulled a $200 and walked out. I've yet to actually play poker/BJ/craps at a Casino. I only went for my first time a few months ago, but luckily I've always come out on top. Fuck the house.
Anyone else have good luck at casinos?

Never been to one. But I wouldn't mind winning a couple hundred bucks. Then again I would probably lose everything and be super pissed.

Losing is the worst feeling ever, and makes you spend more and more money, luckily I ended up winning mine back and walking out. But that shit is addictive.

I've only ever spent $5 on slots, just to give it a try.

I lost my $5.

My workplace has a racetrack and slots. There are a lot of old people who come in every day to spend their money.

I remember seeing an interview with that famous gambler guy who sells the videos on how to win at the slots. He was saying that he didn't make his money playing the games at the casinos so much, what he'd do would be to find people who were on a winning streak, and approach them personally, betting with them that their streak would end. Of course they're so psyched that they're winning that they gladly bet that their streak continues...

about a week ago, i won a 100 buxx on a wheel of fortune slot machine. i put a 20 dollar bill in and within a couple rolls, i got to spin the wheel. i don't play very often, only a couple dollars with some friends or family every once in a while. usually, if i double my money, i'm gone. i've found that's a good rule to stick to.

I win money gambling, but usually not from casinos. I'm just a damn good poker player and it's not hard to find a game these days with the fad catching on.

Casino Niagra is the devil. I remember when they were putting it up there was alot of controversy around here.

Why's that? It seems like the majority of winnings go back into the local economy anyway, I know most of mine did. Of course all casinos are bad for turning people into homeless addicts, but really they have no one but themselves to blame.

I think i'm a pretty good poker player as well. I usually win when playing with friends but for some reason I'm reluctant to play at the casino... maybe one day.

I see the chainsmoking, two machines at a time, slot pulling hags. But again, they have no one to blame but themselves. Is alcohol really inherently evil?

The most I ever won was $500 in one pull on a dollar machine. I'll always regret not playing two dollars in it, because that would have won me $5000 instead of $500.

Last time I went to Vegas I won enough to pay for my trip:thumbup:, over $400.  I played craps and black jack though, fuck the slots.

haha no shit man, when I won the 400 and the 200 for that matter, I only put in 1 credit. You always kick yourself thinking "i could have had double, could have had double!".

You were very lucky, I must say. Particularly with slots. Next time, you may not be, though. In the end, the only people who wind up making "big money" are the casino owners....

Blackjack is going to be your best bet if you know how to play it. The odds are only 5% in the house's favor.

Your worst bet is going to be the machines

I realize. Eventually the house always wins. I pretty much just stuck to one type of slot, it had the best odds (least amount of variables) that I could see. There were three of the same that i switched it up on.
