    My Trip Report

    I just got back a couple days ago from 4 days in Vegas. I'm not much of a trip report writer, but I wanted to share my D'oh moment. My gf and I were killing time at the Bellagio playing Deal or no deal .01 slot. Normally I play the brief case bonus almost all the way to the end, this time was different. I got the bonus with max coin in, got the bonus round and picked my case. Right off the bat all the big cases were gone but the 100,000 case. I was like shit, all the cases are gone and no way do I have the 100k case. The banker came back on offered 22,600. The highest amount out there other than the 100k was 20k. I thought for sure the next case opened would be the 100k case and my offer would plumet. I took the deal.....and now the kick in the ass. "Your case contains....100,000" I threw my hands in the air and almost feel out of my seat. The group that gathered behind me gave me that sheepish eek look. I can't believe I threw away the 100k case. That was my d'oh moment.

    Statistically, you made the right move. Don't beat yourself up for being smart AND lucky!

    Yea, it sucks. But you kept yourself from stressing out getting more and more deals, and the worry that the next one would be the big one and then wining a buck - 2.98
