    1. It's on a slot machine. While I also enjoy tables, my wins are never so great because I do not buy in for much or bet much.

    2. I only put in $5-20 to start with.

    3. It's in Vegas.

    4. I was only playing as a quick time-filler between activities.

    You haven't already made several trips to the ATM.

    When you're not stuck for MORE than the win (hence NOT a win)

    When it's a "last ditch" win (ie: on you're way out of the casino, and pop a good win...no other feeling like it; leaving the casino on a positive note)

    You win right off the bat when you hit town and you continue winning for three more days. The best part is the shopping spree you can treat yourself to once you get home.

    Just experienced this and I love my new 55" flat screen TV. Thank you Fremont Street!!!:beer::beer::beer:

    Nobody's around to witness your win. No "instant fans." No "instant entourage."

    Winning at gambling doesn't make me excited. I find it to be humorous and an accomplishment. It makes me happy.

    Having your home team win a major sports championship, that is exciting. The hunt, the buildup over a long period of time. The final release of all of that tension. It makes you jump, spin in circles, laugh hysterically and cry all at the same time. That is excitement.

    I once had a 220 yard 5-wood go straight into the hole. That was exciting.

    I'm never going to win huge because I don't bet huge. I view progressive slots the same way I view the lottery. It will never happen to me and if it did I would be shocked, not excited.

    I think getting a ride in an Air Force F-16 would be exciting.

    When it is with my friends.

    There have been two times on blackjack where four of us killed it for three hours of the dealer busting. There were also two strangers at the table with us who we gave smiles, laughs, and high-fives to for the rest of the weekend when we passed them in the hotel or restaurants.

    Two weeks ago at the Peppermill in Reno there were eight of us at a craps table on a monster roll. Fun fun fun. As soon as we applauded the shooter after seven-out, I colored up quick. Everyone told me the next morning I got out at the right time, as they gave some back. But we sure had a good time while it lasted.

    I love winning with friends. They cheer blackjacks and hardways and make me smile.

    Based on my last trip the answer would be.. 1. Winning a hand pay with monies won from free play. 2. Winning a hand pay while lurking for my favorite machine and 3. Winning a hand pay while "getting stuck" another day due to plane issue.. On the Exact same machine I won the 1st hand pay on. And the final would be first, 2nd and 3rd hand pay in one trip!!!!
