Well, this past Thur. was the wife and myselfs 32nd anniversary. We NEVER, and I mean never really do anything special, maybe eat out here at home.We decided to go big time and drive down to Tunica Fri. nite, and we went to horseshoe to eat the seafood buffet. It was 25.99 a piece, and if you had a gold card, it dropped the price to 23.99. You bet I signed up. Four dollars saved is four dollars. After eating, we decided to just walk around. Never been a gambler, dont care anything about it, dont know much about it. After watching, I had one loose dollar bill in my pocket. I found a slot machine that cost 25 cents a play. I told my wife I was gonna try one dollar. I put it in, pushed the button, nothing, second push, that bad boy hit for $29.00. I pushed the cash out button, and left out of there with $29.50. What a nite. Dont worry, No desire to start gambling, but one thing about it, there was one person who left out of tunica a winner .

Yep leave while your ahead..Wife and myself went to the Hollywood in Tunica a few years back. I found a slot that took two quarters...dropped in 2 won $20, dropped in two more hit $500. Told the wife we can go home now....LOL.

I been lucky on slots for some reason, Tunica, Boats, Vegas. Only one time out of several and that was in Reno I have walked away loseing and then only lost my set limit.

I follow a rule my old man told me years ago..Never gamble with money you can't afford to lose.

I came home with around $300 from Tunica a few yrs back. Went to Biloxi and put a $10 in the slots. Got up to around $130 and ended up losing it all because i got greedy lol.

I did the same think in vegas 3 years ago went with a friend to the shot show.I played a slot for about 15 min until I lost the 5 bucks I put in it. Well we had to catch the red eye back to knoxville that night and I decided to go grab a coke. On the way back to the gate walked by a bunch of slots and I had change left over from the coke. Put 3 dollars in and on the second pull I won 75.00 I got my money got the plane and came back home.

Ex sister in law is the luckiest I've ever seen. I was the first victim one night and was waiting at our predetermined meeting place. She walks up and says she has $3 in dollar coins left. We talk for a minute and she says she's not going home with the three bucks and puts one in the nearby dollar slot. Nothing. Same with the second. Then the third, she wins $800.

A few years back my wife got to playin the 50cent machines. I told her how the odds on those were awful and they would just suck up her money. She promply hit one for $12,000. Also had a lady that worked for me driving out west somewhere. She needed to use the rest room so they stopped at a casino and she won $4,000...

The biggest slot I ever won was $25,000. That was just a week before I met TnDoe. I always wondered if I got lucky or someone knew I would meet TnDoe later and was making up for it.

Well the truth is we talked TnDoe into picking up the tab for the dinner. There were several of us from TnDeer that met for the first time and after reporting on what happened the points on our TnDeer mancards went up a bunch.

I've never been a slot player..I like the crap table. My ex cousin from Horn Lake had been on vacation. On the way home she had to go by the casinos and had $20 left in her pocket so she stopped in and dropped it in a slot machine. She hit for $1,000,000.
