I won about 2260 playing blackjack for my first time online. Bought in for 50 bucks on my credit card, walked away from western union today with 2310!



I got a little crazy with my bets after I started really winning... but Lady Variance was on my side!

For crying out loud, can't they at least clean the $1000 chips???

It's a better story if you say the chips were clean when you got them.

What?

No comment about the room key for Super 8 ?




I decided to splurge a little because I was too tired to look for a Motel 6.

It's funny that when I made this thread a couple of months ago, I considered cashing out $2056 on a $1000 buy-in to be a big win. Oh how I've grown since then, haha.

For what it's worth, for me that would be a huge win. I love gambling and have been in the industry for years and years but I'm still excited enough by $10 bets. I'll actually get really excited just playing $5 craps with a pass line bet and $27 across, at least after a few drinks.

One time I was staying on the Strip on a busy weekend. Before I went out for the night I decided to get a drink. Prices were outrageous so I figured I'd play some nice, slow Pai Gow for the drinks. I bet the minimum, $25 a hand, for four hands and lost every single one. I only stayed long enough to get two drinks. Then I went to the strip club, got drunk, and dropped around $1200. The next morning I woke up hungover. I looked at my empty wallet and my first thought was, "goddamnit! I lost $100 on Pai Gow!"

Here's a picture I took after a losing session at Mohegan Sun


lesson I learned from this picture is that you shall never drink the "5-hour Energy" in casino.
winning streaks come and go, losing streak never ends.

Anybody ever stayed at a Motel six when they were $6. No phone, no TV, extra if you wanted those luxuries. And cable TV, forgedda about it back then. LOL
