30 y/o from Altoona, PA here. Stumbled on the board about a month ago. I go once or twice a week to the closest casino, Rocky Gap. About 7 times a year to AC, mostly during the summer. Once a month to Rivers, and maybe once a year to the other area places. I did my first Vegas trip in October, a quick two-day trip to scout the area for a longer trip in Feb or March. Came out ahead 350. I had lost my first 8 hands of blackjack and thought I'd be the real-life Clark Griswold. But I had a great next day thanks to some decent slot wins and blackjack runs. I'm off to an incredible start this year at Rocky Gap. $400 on the 8th, 1900 a week ago followed by a 200 setback, and 2500 win this week. I stayed Monday night, had a miserable finish to the night, won 1500 the next morning, got snowed in so I had to stay another night and won another 1,000. I'm mostly a 2 hand $10 to 15 ea hand blackjack player so it takes some good streaks to win that much. I want to get to Vegas soon but the rules are so friendly around here it's hard to leave.
