Arrived about 90 minutes ago - checked into the room - relaxed for a few minutes, then ventured down to the casino floor to play
I had $50 in FSP so I sat down at a 3D WOF machine to play $5/pull

First pull made $6
Second pull made $3
Then nothing for 5 pulls
Eight pull hit for $75
Nada on the ninth
And, apropos, $10 on the tenth for a total of +94


I ventured over to the high limit blackjack pit and bought in for 3k
There is not much to say other than I was completely massacred
Lost 6 double downs, lost 5 splits and dealer had 9 natural blackjacks in 2 shoes
The 3k is gone

You usually lose early and win late. No time to quit on the first day.

Ouch. Do you have a loss limit per session that was ignored?

Were all hands about one off from the other? As in if you had a 17 the dealer either had 17 or 18? or you have 18 they have 19 and so on? Was there a shuffle machine? If not ignore this question

It was a hand shuffle and yes, plenty of 'one off' hands - especially when I had 20 and dealer made 21
