I know to some it's simple - you have a gambling budget of X, if you come home with X+1: it is a winning trip. To me I look at my entire budget for the trip. If I budget 4K for 4 days (gambling, hotel, food, etc.) I consider it a winner if I come home with $1. I consider the 4k is already spent so any more that that is a bonus. I have had 3 trips in 29 where I came home with the original budget plus more, all other trips I have come home with at least a couple hundred up to somewhere close to the original budget. I can safely say every trip was a winning trip! How about you guys? you look strictly at the gambling or do you consider everything?
