It is clear I have to make a few restrictions to this wager as I realize there are nefarious people who will attempt to take something unwritten and run the gamut.

So, number one if I find you to be someone questionable based on past history here at WOV in my sole opinion, then forget us meeting up. If for example you are someone who denies truthful statements or someone who is constantly putting me down, then I don't want to meet up, don't want you watching me play and don't want you (most likely) falsely reporting what you witness.

Number two, this is a dinner wager which to me isn't a big deal. But I never went into the specifics of the dinner aspect because for me a good dinner is a few hundred bucks.

So, loser picks out dinner location with the caveat it will be a sit-down restaurant and not fast food or buffet. I think that is fair enough. I already had one person demanding the restaurant locale and I am certain it was some super extravagant location being picked

Dinner is food and soft drinks for one meal for you and a guest(wife or husband for example). I am certain some unscrupulous person was planning on ordering five $90,000 bottles of wine to laughingly stick me with a ridiculous bill, but no that's not happening.

Finally If you are someone who espouses not wearing a mask, we aren't meeting up. I'm not risking my health by spending a few hours including maskless over dinner with someone who isn't taking our Pandemic seriously.

It's sad I have to be so specific but that's the world we live in.

What was the super-extravagant restaurant ?

I have already been comped four days over NYE, December 30 - January 2nd.

Anyone who wants to see I have a room that weekend in AC can stop by.

Furthermore if I see an Advantage Play (often I set stuff up a few days to week in advance) I invite regular posters on here to come watch me play.

If I don't win at least a thousand dollars for the session, I will pay for dinner.

If I win more than $1000 for the session the person accepting the challenge picks up dinner AND gives a trip report on here.

One condition of this challenge is you must show up with a "fifty thousand dollar smile"



What game? For example, BJ, craps, slots?

Slots.

And specifically if I see an AP opportunity

I'm not claiming I can beat any slot in general

Reminded me of the Seinfeld episode where an annoying comic gives Jerry a suit in exchange for “dinner”. Jerry takes him out, comic only orders soup, and then claims that wasn’t the “dinner” and insists Jerry treat him again.

FWIW, I’d also be concerned about angle shooting as a general matter so the caveats above make sense.

Just guarantee yourself there will be an opportunity.

I recall a scenario of having a confederate front-load a must-hit-by machine in order to win a similar challenge.

Is that what you mean by guaranteeing an opportunity?

The challenge was similar...not the prize.

But it demonstrated how slot play could be manipulated
to show a win for a short period, when the overall play could be a loss.

Kind of like the freeplay collecting thing.

You can run through freeplay today and claim to win,
but before you claim yourself a winner, you need to establish
that the losses incurred to generate the freeplay offer were less
than what was collected from the freeplay.

That can be established, but not by claiming that it happened.
