Casinos. Cha ching! Cha ching! Cha ching!
« on: June 04, 2012, 09:13:32 am »
Do you ever go to casinos?

If so, how much do you typically bet? What kinds of games do you like to play?
Have you ever won a jackpot? How much?
Do you have any "lucky moves" you do? Like...do you rub the machine? Talk sweet to it to make it hit?

Also, do you.have you ever worked at a casino?
What are some of your funny/crazy stories?

I work at a casino and recently have started going to gamble as well, so I'm curious to hear about other people's visits.

I like slot machines and video poker.  I've never won huge jackpots but I've won enough to cover my and my husband's trip to Las Vegas before.  I always do better in Las Vegas then I do at the casinos in WA state.

I really like the machines that do the interactive stuff like Little Shop of Horrors but they can sure suck you in to spend more money then you intend to.

Where are you working?  Stay there long enough and you will have lots of stories.  If you are working in Las Vegas I would love to "talk" with you some.  I'm writing a novel that partly takes place there and would really like some insider info.

At any rate, good luck with your new job.

I've only been to a casino a couple of times, but didn't really find it as exciting as some people. I noticed lots and lots of boxes of tissue in the bathrooms for people who were crying cause they lost their money. I felt bad for them.

I like to play video poker and blackjack.  I once won $2,000 from video poker.

I don't go to casinos very often. I only bet on horses and play slot machines.

I lived in NJ for 10 years and only visited AC three times, when I did I only placed the slots. I won $250 once and did not go back. I guess my chances to win more was gone and I was keeping what I won. I am not really that much of a gambler!!

I've been to Vegas before, but I wasn't 21 for any of the trips.
I lived just outside of Vegas when I was 1-2, and have visited before, plus went to my uncle's wedding at one of the beautiful casino hotels there a few years back. I just turned 21, and my husband wants to make a trip to Vegas, so we might go some time.

I love games like GhostBusters, Dark Knight and The Hangover...but the Hangover doesn't pay me well. My husband got me in to Cool Catz, and those can pay nicely.

I work in Oklahoma at one of the Chickasaw Casinos. I'm at the Players' Club desk, and boy oh boy do I already have some interesting stories!

I used to go several times a year but haven't been in years.  The most I ever won was on a quarter slot machine for around $300.  They're so much fun and the food is delicious and priced for everyone!
