Haha a guy kept giving me chips playing 3CP because he liked my sister and wanted me to play 2CP and PP. I should take my sister to the casino more often.
My best getting tipped story is from eons ago when Spanish 21 was just making it big.
I was at the MGM Grand, playing third base with my loverly $35 bet and the guy playing first base was alternating between 700 and 1000.
I forget the cards, but I could have hit or stood... must have involved an ace. I looked at him and asked what he wanted me to do. He said play your cards, he didn't care. I said, you have $800 on the hand, what do you want. He told me to take a hit.
The hit won him the hand, but I lose. He still threw me $50 and did so several more times during the night. Was a fun time.
This has got to be 15-18 years ago on a Midwest ( Indiana) riverboat. Im shooting from the end of the table. Nothing remarkable seemed to be happening but I guess I was hitting alot of uptown numbers. As my usual I only had the 6/8 placed and was running my normal progression on them, so I was collecting on the 8s. After a bit my base dealer paid me 7$ on a hard ten. I'm say I don't have a hard 10. He says a player on the other end put it up for me. Actually had a 3way hard ten!
Now I have hit a few passes and starting to hit numbers all over the board. This is starting to be a bit of a long roll, as I got the dice just after a stick change and they are changing again. I have made good money and so have other players. Double odds was max odds and this was pre fire bet / sharpshooter bet. It seems each hard number i hit I am getting 7 or 9 bucks. I finally look at the hard way bets and there 200$ on each with 2$ piggyback.
I really have no idea how long I shot, I do know the boxman, who I knew, asked if I was still shooting. I replied, yea why? He commented that I got the dice long before he went on break and still had them when he came back.
That must have been the jinx, I 7out about 2 throws later. My total tip from the other player must have been around 100 bucks. He said thanks kid, he had made a great deal of money, as had most of the table if they were betting or pressing.
It was a good day, and a fun one.
I cannot remember being tipped again by somone
