So last night I had a pretty detailed dream about getting barred from all CET properties that I think I can mostly still remember.

The dream started and a casino employee was showing me some kind of cash reward or voucher that I had won, but not cashed in. I was dubious because it was from a previous trip and I told him I made sure to claim all of my rewards on that trip (never mind the parts of this dream that aren't 100% realistic, it was a dream after all).

He kept pointing to where it said you needed to show ID, and I could tell he was trying to get me to give him my driver's license. I realized what was happening and basically just started walking away. It gets a little hazy here, but I was waiting for an elevator in a parking garage and it was taking FOREVER, and I could see some suits with earpieces walking toward me - I was feeling like a backroom was coming but finally the elevator came.

I get to my car in the parking garage (in the self-park section), and the valet has double-parked some tiny sedan behind my SUV, clearly to block my escape. The owners of the sedan happened to show up right about then and were like "we didn't double-park you" and I was like "yeah I know, it isn't your fault." At this point the original guy catches up with me and we drop the pretense and I tell him I'm not giving him my DL and he says that I have won over $60,000 counting cards at various CET properties that year. LOL, I wish! The funny thing is I have only counted cards ONCE at a CET property in real life, at the Bally's S17 pit a couple of years ago, and I lost $1400.

Anyway it becomes more genial at this point, and he tells me I've been barred from all CET properties, and for some reason I ask if I can get it in writing. He produces some sheet of paper that has all the casinos I've been barred from on it, and adds CET to the list and signs it and gives me a copy (nothing like this exists in real life, of course). Amusingly Main Street Station was on the list, where I got barred during the 2013 WoV Spring meetup.

I hope someone is mildly amused by my stupid dream. Weird that I had such a detailed one when I haven't gambled since February 2015.

I think it's sweet that, while you haven't commented in ages, you come here to post about it. Welcome back; nice to see you!

Yes, welcome back. I tend to have a few gambling dreams usually in my dreams, I win. Or at least make better decisions than when I was actually at the tables.

I think we all have "dreams"... in the sense of hopes and aspirations that involve winning. After all, who would step up to a negative expectation game and hope to lose simply because of a mathematical expectation. We all hope to win, that the CW will bring us loads or really good booze and that the dice we are about to use will wind up on a red velvet pillow in some display case.

Thanks, haven't done much gambling recently. The aforementioned Feb 2015 trip was my last to Vegas, and I hit up the Indiana Grand fall of 2016 and posted here about how disappointed I was (all machines, no tables).

Vegas is much further away and more expensive flights since we moved to the east coast and I have an 8-month old daughter who, obviously, takes up a lot of my time now :). Probably won't be around much but I knew if anyone would appreciate a recap of my dream, it would be y'all here at WoV.

Usually when I get home from a Vegas trip I dream about cards and dice for a couple of nights, but this was the first one in a while and a new theme.

Dreams about casinos are all unpleasant. Subconscious trying to tell you something, trying to get you ready for anticipated events.

Had a dream many moons ago I was playing blackjack with a bunch of super whales. I was betting $5 a hand and they were all betting several million per hand. They were getting crushed and ready to leave, pit boss then told the dealer to give all the players a bunch of $25k to $100k+ chips, to reimburse them a bit for their big losses. So dealer was literally throwing chips up in the air and we were all catching them. I remember thinking, wow, I just made at least 1-2 million dollars, this is awesome!

Then I woke up and it took a while to figure out it was just a dream and that I hadn't made a few million the night before.

But some day, some day it'll happen....

Recently I noticed casino nightmares I think due to a few issues I have with the casino. I'm procrastinating about them, hope it's not too late, but if it is, so be it. I'm not getting screwed by anyone and paying them unless they're a 7 at least.😎

Last night I dreamt that I was playing in the WSOP main event. At my first table were a couple of my coworkers. We were having some delay for some reason starting the round, I think because they were having some kind of issue distributing the chips.

I told my coworkers that I didn't have a lot of poker experience so please excuse my ignorance if I did stuff wrong (string bets, not betting in the right multiples, etc.). And in my head in the dream I was thinking "why did I throw away ten grand on this entry when I don't know WTF I'm doing?"

Why can't I dream about winning at blackjack or craps? I don't even really like poker.
