your buddy must have been playing something other than poker to get comped rooms. unless the casino sucked.

Generally money runs fast both ways and I usually lose... a lot. Don't want to go back for a while unless it's more of a special event type of deal

I've only been in a casino and handful of times and never even put down any money on anything. I just can't fathom what would compel me to take money that I work day in and out to earn and willingly put it up for grabs.

have been twice, lost 40 first time and 40 2nd time. Pretty much only go for the fun of it, play for hours only to lose everything I put in both times. Got kinda unlucky but so goes Texas Hold em' (that's the only game i play). Probably go twice a year on average maybe I'll win money next time. Not too big on casinos, my buddy goes often and wins a lot though so if you're good should keep going.

I pretty much just stick to poker now. I used to play some slots and some Let it Ride, and I developed a hatred for Blackjack quickly so I stopped playing that shitty game fast. I've done fairly well playing poker drunk at casinos, though I stick to limit. Don't wanna play NL while drunk. The best casino I've been to is probably Atlantis down in the Bahamas.

I did the same damn thing. I was on the waiting list for poker for like 3 hours and then ended up just leaving.

I lost about $200 once at Mohegan Sun, it's in Connecticut. Mostly at the black jack and roulette tables. I wanted to play poker but it was too crowded.

My Chinese buddy won some money at the Chinese tables though. I just watched, didn't know what the heck he was playing.

The chance to win more money is usually what compels me.

I live about three hours from Atlantic City and I go every now and then. It's a good way to kill time and hopefully win some dough. I play a little bit of everything. Blackjack, slots, poker.

I guess, but at what odds? If I want more money, I'll keep what I earn and then go to work the next day and earn more.

Of course I understand the allure, but it doesn't appeal to me whatsoever.

I've won and lost thousands in casinos. Won a lot on poker tables and then proceeded to give it away in the pits. Unless you have an insane amount of discipline I would encourage anyone to avoid playing table games. Unless money doesn't mean a thang stay far, far away. I get sick just thinking about the amount of monday I've dumped into roulette, blackjack, and craps. I've had some nice sessions but every decent day I've had at least 4 terrible ones.

Most people in casinos are straight degens. The women are totally plastic and fake. It's a very sad thing watching someone empty out there bank ATM and go totally busto. Fortunately I've never come close to that but I don't envision myself ever spending much more time at a casino outside of a cardroom anymore.

I dont normally go to casinos, but last year I went to the casino in Melbourne. Won $400 playing roulette (Total accident, it was electronic roulette, I pressed the wrong button and bet $40 and ended up winning). Spent the next 4 hours playing blackjack and ended up losing $100. I thought I did pretty well to end up $300 up since I was only playing with $50 to start with.
