I know this is VMB. But I have been taking a beating lately. Two weeks ago -- lost 1k at Taj Mahal (Beautiful Suite on 42nd floor with balcony and jacuzzi, but still lost 1k) Wednesday-- Lost $1200 At Parx Casino Today-- Went down to Harrahs chester to make my derby bets. (I like the 3 horse) Drive to Valet, "Hi Mr. S" (I come here too much) and he short-parks my car. Had $45 in FSP, dumped it and $200 in my favorite machine Double Easy Money Hot Hot jackpot in the .25 demoniation. Started playing 12 coins a spin and got very, very, little. Two bonuses but no pay. Down to zilch. Go get $500 from the ATM starting to figure out how this will affect my upcoming Vegas bankroll. Put $100 in a top dollar and cashed out at $196.. on my way back. Put $400 in the machine (back to the DOUBLE EASY MONEY) up it to 2 credits a line, 24 coins total. (Machine goes all the way to 5 credits per) Hit a bonus, but only win 75 credits...WTF? Play a little longer and get another bonus. On the 5th spin... 4 money symbols and a double easy money, which is 1000 credits times 8 times 2 16000 credits $4000 The bonus keeps on going and ends at 16836 credits, for those who dont want to do the math it;s $4209!!!! The attendant asked me if I wanted cash or check....a dilema I have never had. I was sensible and got $2500 in a check to replenish the savings I had raided And took $1709 cash. While I was waiting for the JPOT, I won another $100 Cashed out that machine another $500. Played some double top dollar. Won another $86:evillaugh Played some monopoly won another $30: Bought myself a drink (no free booze here.. even in Diamond lounge you pay, but much less...they just dropped DL prices to $2) Had a free buffet coupon, got a seat overlooking the river and savored my win. Called anyone who would answer the phone!:Ãž Now have a full bankroll for Vegas at the end of the month WOO HOO!!
