Some of you already know what I mean by this, but to others - "the zone" is a semi-mythical gambler's state-of-mind & reality, where during a given trip, he or she cannot seem to lose at any game, table or machine, that they play. It usually takes a little while to recognize that you're actually in the zone, but when you do, there is nothing quite like that feeling. In 40 years of Vegas trips, it's only happened to me one time, back in the late-80s... & it was downright eerie. At one point, one of the guys on this trip was razzing me about winning everything I played & that I ought to share some of the luck. I asked him if he was serious, and he said he was! So, about 1 minute later, as we were walking out of the Stardust, I stop him & tell him to play a very particular 3-reel $1 slot... "Just put in $20 & play 3-coins. You'll win." He scoffs at me & proceeds to remind me that I don't even play slots...like ever. I tell him that, if he doesn't play it, I will. He laughs & says "Go ahead!". I feed in $20... 2nd pull was a $100 hit. I cash out, shrug my shoulders & say to him, "I tried to tell you..." I won at every type of gambling I played on that trip...no, not every hand, roll of the dice or pull of a handle, - but on every single session of play! Curious to know if others have had a trip in "the zone".
