What's the most you've blown at a casino?
« on: December 28, 2006, 02:14:04 AM »

I just blew $110 at a casino.  I was at 205 at one point and then it all went down hill from there.  $110 is probably chump change but for a poor college student, that's like 20 beers at a bar or 20 six packs.   Cheers Cheers  At least I got a couple free shots of patron.

So let's here the stories.

Around $750, but it was $750 I had won the night before. $300 or so is the most I've dropped out of "my" money.

$350 - which at the time was a week's wages and rent due.  Not a happy day.

Don't bother with gambling now.  I'm probably one of 17 males in the country who can't stand Vegas.   Disgusted

In all seriousness, I've driven by casinos but never actually set foot in one.  No real reason, other than I've very, very cheap and can't see myself doing anything but parting with my cash.  That doesn't appeal to me.

look at it as $20-$50 for a people-watching experiment.

I'm not really much of a gambler. We'll go to Wendover and Vegas about once each per year. 21 is my game, but I like playing low minimum tables and they're getting much harder to find these days. Time was you could play $1/hand, get regular free drinks, and play the same $20 all night.

The most I've ever lost was probably in the $100 range and that bummed me out for weeks, mostly because I was a starving student and really couldn't afford it. Now I'd rather lose $100 on golf clubs.

That's about the extent of my gambling as well. Once a year, maybe, in a casino and usually blackjack for a coupla hours.

I've got too many other ways to use my disposable income these days Grin
