Peb's and I headed out for a day of fun and excitement yesterday, hoping to make a little money along the way at Casino Rama.
I bought in for $200 at my favourite Let-It-Ride table and low and behold, I'm dealt trip 3's down on the very first hand. + $195 !
Then, I never saw another winner. - $100 overall.
A Hot Hot Penny slot grabs my attention and BINGO! + $200 on the very first pull.
Then, I never saw another winner. + $60 overall.
I see a Roulette table with a board filled with nothing but black numbers. Naturally, I make my mind up that red just has to hit. I throw $50 on red and whammo! + $50 first crack.
Then, I never saw another winner. + $10 overall.
There's just something about Blazing 7's and like a moth to a flame, I can't resist the urge to play with fire. First pull = assorted 7's. + $300.
Then, I never saw another winner. + $80 overall.
A rather charming and attractive older lady takes the seat at the machine next to me.
"It's my last $5.00" she announces.
"It takes $3.00 a pull to make anything good happen" I tell her, "can I play an extra $10.00 on the machine with you?"
"Sure!" she says with a giggle.
First pull = YAHTZEE!
An attendant is required at the machine for payout. Then the attendant and the charming old girl both head off to the cashier's cage, to settle up the big winnings.
A bit later there's a tap on my shoulder and the faintest of voices says "Excuse me."
"Since I didn't actually need your $10.00" she said, "Here you go, you can have it back."
A day of firsts indeed!
My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
