I've enjoyed all of your trip reports so much (Vegas and non Vegas) and all of my trip reports have been very low rolling but....I think I'm headed down a bad road haha. Lately I've been going to the casino a lot more than I probably want to admit, and have started betting a lot more than I used to but it's been a lot of fun and I haven't been uncomfortable doing so. I figure with no Vegas trips for awhile I can play with more money for now. I've even had some decent free play offers lately, one for $50 which I turned into $150 and one for $45 which I ended up losing that and $100. I thought I'd share a story about a visit I had on a recent weekend visit. A lot of my previous trips I would just play 2 to 1 roulette and often leave even or close to it. I've been playing more slots hoping for a hand pay and mixing in some blackjack and roulette. I went for a good 4 hours recently and it was a big roller coaster ride for me. I took $300 in and started out by playing the money vault slot $2 per spin progressive.* I lost $60 really fast then played up and down and cashed out at +$60. Went to the roulette wheel and placed an $80 bet on black, lost that and was down $20. Went back to the money vault slot and got up to +$80 for the night. On a bonus spin it landed right beside the progressive which would have payed 1.4 million.....oh how sweet that would have been but I know the machine does that on purpose to make you think you were close! Decided to take my money and play some blackjack and was down $200 a lot quicker than I could imagine. I was betting $50 per hand and lost a few $100 bets.* I had $100 left. Took that to a 50 cent 2x 3x 4x slot which I've had some success on in the past and bet max ($1.50) per spin and won and lost and played it for far too long and was down to $20 of my $300. Going to the atm was not an option (when my $300 is gone I'm leaving) so I figured well I'll see what I can do with $20. Headed to blackjack and slowly crept my way up with $5 bets to $80. Took the $80 to the roulette wheel bet it on odd and won. Took the $160 back to blackjack (not real tables at my casino just the digital with the dealer on the screen) and bet $100 and won. Back up to $260 but down $40 still. Decided I felt lucky so I decided to bet $200 on a hand and won that now got my $300 back and up +$160. That $200 hand was my biggest bet to date and wow what a rush that was!* Now I'm playing with house money so I'm feeling pretty good...that changed quickly. Took the $160 back to the slots and lost $100 on the Flinstones slot. I don't know why I bother with that slot, I never win but I thought I'd give it a try with house money. So now I'm up $60 and decide to go back to roulette. I made one $60 bet on black and won then decided to try and double it again betting $120...bad idea lost that bet so now I'm down all of my house money. Do I leave at even and call it a fun night...nope. Back into my $300 and back to the blackjack table. 2 straight bets of $100 2 straight losses now down $200 on the night. I just about bet my last $100 but decided to only bet $10 as I had a bad feeling. Lost my $10 now down to $90. Bet $90 won. Bet $180 won. Bet $200 I had a 6 and a J Dealer showed ace I thought well this hand is toast. I hit and got a 4 stayed at 20. Dealer flipped an 8 for 19 I win and can't believe it....got so lucky on that one. Now I'm up $260 on the night and sitting there trying to convince myself it's time to go home because your luck has to come to an end. I bet one more $50 bet and won for a total profit of $310 on the night. I had a bad feeling about another big bet so I bet $10 lost and headed out up $300 for the night! Now I know what it feels like to be down to your last $20 and make a comeback like that then lose most of it again and make an even bigger comeback. Not a nice feeling at times but the end result was pretty satisfying and in the end I had a blast! I know some people on this board bet a lot bigger but this was a pretty big deal for me! I enjoyed re living that night while I typed this out.
