The trip was ok . Alot of construction in Houston. Had to detour and stop and just wait. :devil2: I don't think they will ever finish.
Saturday night no matter what I played I lost. So I ate and went to the room. Decided I would go around 3 or 4 in the morning. Well, I woke up at 7,guess I was tired. I got up and got dressed decided I was going to win today. My mom had the worst luck of all. Poor thing felt sorry for her.
Anyway ,I sat down at a blazing 7 quarter machine. I put 60.00 in it and hit 388.78,alright I was happy. I started looking for my mom and I walked past this machine that had a quarter left in the tray. I decided I would put 10.00 in it. I hit 175.00. Whoo Hoo I was on a roll. Started looking for mom again. I went over to the 50 cent oil well games. There she was broke, oh well I told her I'll give you some money. Oh no she would have no part of it. Ok while I was standing there I put 5.00 in a machine. Nothing,so I put another 5.00 in and 2 pulls later I hit 534.00. I was on cloud 9. We went back to the blazing 7 and hit another machine for 448.00. Mom felt alittle better ,so she went back to the nickle machines. I walked past this 1.00 gold 7 machine. I never play 1.00 machines. But I put a twenty in this one machine. I hit 450.00. OMG ,I just about had a fit. I couldn't believe it. I am one of these people that might as walk in and just hand them my money. I never win anything.
I walked around which it was so crowded. I ended up putting a 100.00 back . I told myself NO, NO ,NO....just go to the room and play later.I layed on the couch and watched tv. Mom came in about 30 minutes later. When my sister got to the room,she said she is done playing. So we decided to drive home. Got back around midnight. I was tired ,but tickled to death. I brought money home and didn't blow it.
Now I can go buy me some more baby calves :D

Glad you won a few bucks.

If its any consolation I came to Houston over forty years ago and the Gulf Freeway (I45) back then was under construction between Houston and Galveston. Well, it's still under construction today!!!! At one point a couple of years ago they had ALL major corridors in Houston under construction. Don't know what goes through those folks mind when they plan highway renovation.

I hit $6.5K on a $1 double bowtie machine in Hot Springs not too long ago. Close to around the same week I saw this young man in his 20s hit three times in a row right next to me for over $20K.

Very fortunate to win something thats for sure.
As they say.. the thing to know about Vegas or any other gambling establishment is knowing when to get out. :nod:
Sounds like you knew when.

Good post. If we lose money gambling, at least we don't have to feed something.

I do not gamble either, Oh I go to the casino once in a while but it is only to donate money to the owners. I do not count that as gambling if I don't expect any return. :lol:

Joy -- Sounds like you had an enjoyable mini -vacation. Good for you.

:D Well,Alice take plenty of money. The machines are tight. I was just lucky for a change.
We went to Grand Coushatta in Kinder.
I've been going there for years. The most I have ever won was 6000.00. But mostly I lose and come home with just enough money for gas. The main thing is I do have alot of fun while I am there. This time I wore a John Deere cow bell. Everytime I hit something I rang my bell. People were laughing and asking what's with the bell. Even the casino workers got to watching me. Like what is up with this crazy woman. Heck fire it was something to do.

Joy, about 8 years ago I won $750 at the Frontier in Vegas. 6 years ago I hit for $1250 again at the Frontier. 4 years ago I hit for $2,000 on a dime machine at the Hard Rock Hotel in Tampa, I think it was. Since then I've won squat. I keep thinking it's time!!!!!!!!! And like you said, it's so much fun...win, lose, or draw...

Thanks for the info!

Hey Alice did you anything about Texas voting on gambling ? I heard on the news the other night that maybe so. That's one thing that I do not understand about Texas. Let there be casino's . For crying out loud most of the people in Lousianna that I talked to were from Texas.
It is fun........

I haven't heard anything about it, but I haven't been listening to the TX news lately. I would think that with all the gambling dollars going to Winstar in OK, and into LA they'd get off dead center and at least propose it! Sheeeesh!

They allow you to play the stock market in Texas so I don't know why casinos are forbidden. Their isn't much difference and both are regulated. :???:

Hey, y'all, come to Indiana. We've got gambling everywhere.
And, after the legislature passes this anti-smoking law they are considering you'll have no trouble with crowds.

It's been a couple years, but the last time I went to the casino they required just a little more than that. ;-)
No shoes, no shirt, no service, y'know.
