    Default Positive Experience

    Thought I would put a happy gambling experience on this thread, since I put a negative one on. In July of 2008, I was at a economics conference at the Tuscany. Economics
    what a oxymoron! Anyway, I hit a royal at Terribles .25, and I got 3 rd place in there weekly slot tour. My big hit was on my birthday, which is July 22, I still have that ticket, as I got the 3 symbols and ended up with 11,000 pts for the day, in fact that put me in 2nd place. I ended up with $1,000 for the tournament. Ya, Ha.

    I played in one at the Cosmo in July. I came 2nd and won $10 in slot credits.

    It was free to enter, so $10 is $10...

    Many years ago I stayed at the Plaza in downtown Las Vegas and they had a daily free slot tournament for all hotel guests.

    I won first prize, which I think was $200.

    I must have been very lucky because I am sure that there were about 1,000 people entered into that tournament.

    I hit a royal in spades drawing one card an ace. It was the first royal in a year and a half and that was after 5 trips an average of 6 days each and a good deal of time. It was .25 cents which is the level of the majority of my play. It was on my 1st retirement trip, so I was a happy camper.

    my early october trip brought me an exciting run at the 4 queens. i took a 20 dollar free play up to 250 and got off the machine with 175. i did lose overall and gave it all back but it was a nice afternoon.

    Thanks, it was probably dumb luck, but I'll take it.
