Variance was a b*tch these past 3 days.

Never got a bonus round or bonus round paid squat ($500 Must Hits at $15,$25 or $50/spin).

or +EV situation never paid off (ie: Lucky Buddha @ $60/spin or Ult X Spin poker at $90/spin or Buffalo Diamond @ $6/spin).
Also played River Dragons at slightly lower than Wiz recommendations because competition and played at $5/spin. (Again, Bonus rounds paid squat)

I guess it averages out?
i hit some NICE bonuses at $200 Must Hits last month where it was almost a handpay on every Must Hit i touched but now down overall the past 2 months. :(

I once played 3 Card with a flashing dealer and lost $500 in about 20 minutes. It was a cruel lesson. I accept, but nonetheless. Cruel.

I have come to appreciate variance as our friend and partner. Without it, no casino would be able to offer any game that can be beaten (+EV). Just imagine if everyone won at or close to expectation. Casinos would be out of business. Casinos count on most players not being able to handle the negative variance, either financially, mentality or both.

The good news is that once you go through a few of these really negative variance runs, it STILL pisses you off just the same. LOL. But you do begin to get used to it....to some degree.
