No Las Vegas content here, but I just had to share the most remarkable gambling experience I can ever imagine. My wife doesn't really like gambling nor gambling towns, so I have to get it when I can. She and my 2 year old were going to visit family in the Midwest, so I had a few days on my own. I decided to make a quick run to see the Railroad Museum in Sacramento, and spend a night in Reno. I also had a quick trip to Seattle to make, so I thought I would visit at least one casino near there. I would have never in a million years guessed what happened in Washington State. I drove from Portland to Sacramento, and on the way down stopped for the first time at the Seven Feathers Casino in Canyonville, OR. This is a a decent little place right off the I-5. I have read a bit about dice setting for craps, and have tried it without success a few times before. But since I feel like I look like I know what I am doing, I tried again. There was no one else on the table, so I could set up wherever I wanted. Being right handed, I set up next to the stick so I could shoot right handed. I lost my allocated $100 in about 20 minutes, and so I was back in the car. I played two more times in Reno at the Atlantis with no luck, again shooting right handed. A few days later, I found myself at the Muckleshoot Casino near Seattle. I was there late on a Sunday, and the place was crowded. I still couln't shoot worth a darn (right handed), but the place had a lot of serious looking Asians, a few of whom could shoot. I made $500 from my $100 starting fund, so I was feeling happy about recouping what I lost in Reno and Oregon and then some. The next day, I needed to return to Portland. I had some time though, so I stopped for one last try at the Emerald Queen in Tacoma. The table was crowded, so I squeezed into the only available spot. This spot required me to shoot left handed down the whole length of the table. I put my $100 down, and was down to about $30 when the dice came to me. I set the dice, and off I went. Folks, it was a thing of beauty. I rolled for about an hour, making about $1200 on my hand. I play an unusal self-designed system which always increases the amount of money I am betting, so a long roll can make a lot of money. Man did I make money. I hit about 5 points, and just tons of 8s and 6s. After making one point, I rolled 17 times without setting the new point. Anyone with money on the Horn was raking it in. My hand finally ended, and I was shaking. I immediately colored up and left because I was in no position to shoot again. As the boxman was taking care of the chips, half of the table came up to me to thank me for the great roll. Just Awesome. So I get in my car and drive. After a while I settle down and start thinking the inevitable thought. Could I do that again? Much to my delight I see a sign for the Lucky Eagle Casino in Rochester, so off I go. When I get there, the table is reasonably crowded, and I find myself in the same spot on the table as before. When I get the dice, I go on another long roll, and make another $500. Unbelievable. I seven out, and I am shaking again. I go play slots to cool down. I decided to give it one more go. By now the table was empty. I guess they were all locals who saw a good thing and left soon after my roll. Not thinking too straight at this point, I decide to shoot left-handed, but where I am much closer to the wall. In about 15 minutes I lost $100, and I wisely hit the door. Of course now I thinking, "Why didn't I stand where I was before when I couldn't miss", but I'll have to test that idea another time. The bigger question of course is did I just experience the top 2 best hands of my life, or can I possibly do it again? Thanks for letting me share. Please let me know if you have any questions about the casinos I visited, or if you want more information about how I bet craps.
