    How much did you win or lose in Vegas gaming over the past year? Or, just say if you were up, or down.

    Definitely up. Possibly my best year gambling in casinos in 16 years!

    Definitely my best year in probably ever as well. Ridiculous run of luck in ‘17. Of course, I’m pretty sure I’ve doomed myself to a reversion to the mean after posting this. :(

    From down under.
    Down $675 on Black Jack { my preferred game }
    Definitely up on the stupid Pokie Machines, due to just dumb luck as you all would know.
    Embarrassing l think.

    Was up $100 on my last evening over Christmas and decided one more roll of dice that night to conclude my gambling. -ve 250 in ten freaking minutes of pso rolling by everyone.

    Grabbed $75 back next morning on way to taxi stAnd hitting bj table for a -$75 for a week in Vegas - pretty good I say!

    Overall positive craps and bj with negatives on slots and vp

    Will most likely be down for niagara @ $1k is my guess. I have to ask for win/loss to be mailed

    I only made one trip to LV this year so my loss was much less than previous years of 4-5 trips. I lost around $11K.

    Needed a break-even trip in December to finish in the black, but instead got crushed at the blackjack tables and at VP. But had a great time on every trip!

    Up for the year at life! But Vegas specifically, I have no idea. I know I was up through the Spring, down through the summer, and came back in the fall. But I didn't keep track this year, so no idea

    I was doing just fine until my final (3rd) trip of 2017...that last trip turned me from up for the year to down.
    Coming back for vengeancein February!

    I'm afraid to find out the (exact) amount of losses incurred, could easily check online or with Host, but it wouldn't be cheery.
    May have to modify my Vegas Casino gambling for 2018...perhaps scale back at DDB VP, or change games....or something!
