Oh, I'm interested. And I won't criticize my kids for watching videos of people playing Minecraft.

I think it's funny that after all these years (20 or so?), IGT still uses the same song for a handpay jackpot.

I've yet to hear that song on real casino play—one day…

That tune is hardwired into my brain. I haven't heard it for a while, but when I do, my brain releases a flood of endorphins.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

don't want to sound jaded but IMHO posting jackpots is a horrible thing to do
it looks like casino advertising
it doesn't prove anything
nobody knows that you didn't lose 5 times as much before you hit the jackpot


when it comes to gamblers and their stories about big wins I follow the advice in the lyrics of the old soul song "I Heard it through the Grapevine."

"𝐩𝐞𝐨𝐩𝐥𝐞 𝐬𝐚𝐲 𝐛𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐞𝐯𝐞 𝐡𝐚𝐥𝐟 𝐨𝐟 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐬𝐞𝐞
𝐒𝐨𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐧𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫"

The demented aspect is that I enjoy the YouTube channels in which the player uploads a video from when they lose their entire buy in. It makes the videos when they actually do win feel more exciting.

And sometimes they even get told to stop recording, which is funny because the casino is discouraging free advertising.

𝐒𝐨𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐧𝐨𝐧𝐞 𝐨𝐟 𝐰𝐡𝐚𝐭 𝐲𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐞𝐚𝐫"



Full disclosure then. I was down about $36,987 for the year before I hit the $240,000. Yes that would have made this the worst year of my life gambling which was preceded by the best year, last year, of about positive 46k. Would I have gone down almost 37k without having won so much last year? No way. I would have run out of funds long ago. But since I have no dependants I saw no reason to not go all out again. And I was saved by a miracle hit. For whatever reason I keep chugging along. Right now I'm looking at a huge tax bill. So I figure, f-it I'll go all out rest of this year. If i lose 40 or 50k then that's 15-20k less in taxes i have to pay to the government. Not quite a loss rebate but at this point I'm not sure it matters.

If someone were to Chronicle the ups and downs I have had the last 2 years gambling no one would believe it. I have had so many redemptions these last 2 years I barely believe it.

I do like to see if big jackpots are posted from some casinos on youtube. if you can't find anyone posting any videos of big jackpots from a certain casino isn't that possibly useful information?

Yeah, it could be a super strict filming restriction, but usually someone can sneak some camera work if they don't make it obvious.
Quasimodo? Does that name ring a bell?
