    I'm from Buffalo originally, and I was up there this past weekend for assorted reasons. Along the way, I hit up the good ol' Seneca Niagara casino. I swear to you, that place always crushes me in every way there is to be crushed. Table games? Ruined. VP? Never pans out. Rollin' the bones? Seven out.

    But this time, I decided to try the dumbest god damned slot you ever saw. It was some kind of Wild West cowboy thing where the bonus, which wouldn't be triggered by anything I could specifically identify, would result in spinning a wheel seven times (not sure how that fits into the Wild West theme-y thingy). Anyway, one time it lands on the Minor Jackpot, about $46, instead of the usual Mini jackpot (roughly $11). So I figure, great... an additional thirty-five dollars. But lo and behold, it started multiplying by all these 7's the slot had landed on (also not a Wild West symbol in particular, but whatevs). Long story short, I wind up with $500.

    By the sight of me, you'd have thought I cleaned the place out. I thought the Bureau of Indian Affairs were gonna come by and arrest me or something. So I beat it outta there before I could give it all back.

    What about you? Have a place that just plain kicks your ass every single time? Did ya get 'em back one time and feel like a world class champion?

    I got killed at the Beau every trip for years.

    I never actually booked a winner.

    Then I went on a tear over the course of several months and won everything back I had lost over the years and more.

    Now I have their money in my pocket and I'll never go back.

    For me it's my two favorite casinos sadly.

    The Linq and Tunica Roadhouse. I rarely win at either place, but certain things make me keep coming back.

    Linq: TAG Lounge obviously.

    Roadhouse: Whirlpool tub, 98%+ paytable on nickel Double STP, friendly employees. But we had an issue with some last trip at the front desk. But at least I won $500 at another casino while waiting for our room! Won almost $1200 for that trip, but still lost $60ish at Roadhouse.

    The Flamingo is that casino for me.

    First time playing blackjack there, it was the only 3:2 table in the casino at the time, and yet the only empty table. 15 minutes and $330 later I found out why the table was empty. Lost about another $100 between roulette and slots on the same visit, and vowed I would never return.

    The next year, I unwisely let some friends talk me into giving the casino another chance. Bought in for $200 at a $25 DD 3:2 table, and after about 2 hours, I was in for $500 and one hand away from breaking even. Not only did I lose that hand, but I went on the worst losing streak ever!!! I should have quit sooner, but I thought for sure it would turn around! Well, I ended up leaving that $500 there that night!

    A few years later, my wife and I were visiting the Flamingo, and for some reason we decided to play some LIR. It was a fun table, and despite the fact that we weren't doing well, we just kept on playing. After almost 3 hours of play, I had left another $500 at that dreaded casino!!!

    Don't know if I will ever get it back, because I honestly can't see myself ever gambling there again!!!

    Cromwell. I win on the Batman slots there and that's it. Every other slot I've played there I've seen less than 25% payback. I can count the points I've seen made at the craps table on one hand. And for how many people think the drink service there is good, I think it's the worst I've seen on the strip. It's like having a root canal trying to find a CW in that joint, and the place is small. You would think they'd be around more often.

    Sh!t that, you and me are dumping $500 apiece into Cleo II there and walking away with about $2700 in December.

    The Wynn.

    Of my two trips there I am 0/2 and -$1,500. Which isn't a ton for most of you but my budget is usually about that for one trip.

    The first trip was my fault, I was too drunk to walk away after being up about $700 playing $25 blackjack. So I vowed to come back sober and get my losses back..... nope, not meant to be. Lost another $800 very quickly.

    $2700/2 is not even 5%, common fella, we have to have higher aspirations than that! I'm serious, they are not getting another dime from me....will say one thing though....EXCELLENT SERVICE!

    You gotta crawl before you can walk. I'm just putting you on the path to freedom. Plus with Your Canadian math skills, I need to keep the numbers easy.

    Caesars Windsor has been most unkind to me recently.

    The only revenge I ever seem to get back is the odd no play stay where I take a comp night, maybe a free buffet, and some free/match play and then give them no real action. Lately I can't even do diddly in the poker room there.

    NYNY kicked our ass last year on slots. 2000 in a matter of a couple hours before zumanity. Got some freeplay and a suite for my losses though.
    Going back in a couple weeks to try to withdraw!
