On my very first Craps Game, I decided that I didn't want to play Craps anymore, and I pressed "C and E," Thinking it meant "Cash Out/End Game," turns out that "C and E," is in fact a bet, and I lost. I remembered being confused and asking a Craps Player why the TITO didn't print out after I pressed the "Cash Out/End Game " button. He gently replied something like "C and E means Craps, and Eleven," and a 6 and a 5 came up, so you lost the bet.. Had you gotten 7/11, you would have won $100 on $12 bet." So, I learned the very hard way that "C and E " in Craps definitely does not mean "Cash Out/End Game,"

Edit. Title should have read,"Biggest Gambling Mistakes You Have Ever Made?"

My biggest is probably discarding a dealt full house in VP, since the screen said "full house" and I thought the cards were held automatically (like they are on, say, Pogo). Yes, I am aware I probably could have called someone in and asked that the hand be paid.

I once saw someone get dealt 4 cards to the royal. He wanted to be funny and rub the screen. Unfortunately he discarded one of the cards while rubbing the screen before hitting draw. I thought it was hilarious. 🤣 On the plus side, even if he held all 4 cards he wouldn’t have gotten a payback anyway, so it wasn’t a huge problem.

When unlimited free drinks was a new novelty for me I was wandering the casino under full sail in search of “fun.” I was aware of my limited capacity and chose baccarat as a game suited to my current ability. Can’t screw it up, right? A few hands in I got distracted in conversation with other players and accidentally bet the tie. I only realized the mistake when I was trying to make sense of the large payout being pushed my way. I colored out, thanking my lucky star for the dumb luck.

Not me, but Mrs Mosca. We got to Borgata, and while I was checking in she put $100 in a 25 cent WoF machine. After two plays, the machine malfunctioned, and no matter how many times she hit the button it wouldn’t function. So she called the attendant, and discovered that she was playing a 25 DOLLAR machine. $50/spin = 2 plays for $100.

I told her that she wouldn’t have been pissed off if she’d hit the SPIN.

Playing vp last year, dealt four of a kind for $200. Hit all the buttons to hold and hit deal to collect. I did it too quickly and only held 4 cards and only 3 of the 4 of a kind.

I left about $800 in a cash out machine. Took the coins and left the bills. Made someone's day , for sure. They really should have the change drop last.

Me too. The biggest gambling mistake I make is spending too much money.
