Well we're just over a couple weeks away from our annual March Break trip.

My wife and I usually try to take a long shot on something while we're in Las Vegas.

I always take the NY Jets for $20 to reach the Super Bowl and $20 to win the Super Bowl. I typically get around 35 to 1 for the AFC Championship and 70 to 1 for the Super Bowl. That's my gamble though.

The last couple times we've played different denominations of the Wheel of Fortune slot. On the $1 machine we put in enough for 7 spins each or we let $100 ride on the $0.25 machine to see where it takes us.

Lately I've been thinking perhaps we could risk $200 on a $5 9/6 JoB machine at Wynn/Encore where we're staying and see where that takes us. $20,000 for a Royal Flush would be a tidy sum.

Is there a different longshot I should be looking at?

Put $20 on your favorite number in Roulette. Also pays 35 to 1

^ Agree but only if a single zero table. Otherwise it might even be possible to double up on Baccarat until you reach your desired target.

Jets to win SB should pay more than 100-1! Jets to make playoffs should be 70-1! I forget, do they have a coach? QB? Wide receivers? RB? I do remember they have the big offensive linemen who are always injured….

How about $5 on the fire bet in craps? If you are lucky enough to win it, it will take a while and the suspense will build.

This sounds fun to ME, but really the answer is what would be the most fun for YOU.

Have a great trip, we also usually go to Vegas in March but this year we are going to Florida instead.

Had fun this week in Biloxi. 2nd session (up $50 first), waiting for riff riff to clear (lose all their money) from craps table. (9/6 JOB but 5 coin only pays 2500!) First hand hold AKQ hearts, J-10 hearts follow for first lifetime RF! First Hand!

I vote JOB!

Congratulations! My wife and I are still waiting for our first Royal on a single-line machine.

We hit a Royal on the draw of a 3-play $0.25 Super Times Pay JoB machine almost 10 years ago, but I'm still chasing one on a single-line machine.
