The absence of online gaming is absolutely killing me. I have nothing to do with my time. The past two weeks I found myself at the horse track, which I used to do a lot but stopped going after being able to play poker and slots from the confort of my home. I was doing pretty good, and then the gambling fever hit me. I hit the atm multiple times, and lost WELL over my limit. Amazes me how this happened, I have no idea what came over me.

This never happened to me online, I was more controlled, maybe it was being in the confort of my own home. Maybe its horse racing is more addicting. Who knows?? I promised myself I wont go back until the Kentucky Derby! Lets see how that promise lasts.

Sorry for the rant, when I gamble online its never depressing. I always have a good time even when I lose. But its the first time in a long time, I was upset I lost. I gotta find a new hobby.. Video games maybe???

Land of the free..
My ass :mad:

Well, I'll still play online at the few remaining places that will both give me bonuses and take my wagers, and I'm still in Indian country regarding B&M casinos for the weekend...

... but in some sort of desperation, I actually started working on my golf swing last weekend. It was horrible! :)

I'm pretty much gambling online the same amount as before, just at fewer places. If I give in and quit, then I give the online gambling opponents another victory, and I refuse to do that.

I went to the track Saturday. I hit the early daily double, which gave me enough profit to cover the racing form, program, coffee, hot dog, and gasoline.

I left after the third race. It was too boring and I got sunburned.

I am reading a great deal. I listen to audio books so I go through about four a week.

My television viewing is way up along with my sleeping. I can't seem to get motivated to do much else.

I am still playing at a couple of places with absolutely no luck. Finally emailed Nucharge and closed that account. It was way too easy putting it on my charge card. That was just big trouble waiting to happen.

If I had been wise I would have taken a course this semester. Had decided before all hell broke loose to take this semester off. Bad move! The course I was going to take would have kept me so busy I wouldn't have had time to be depressed with all of this stuff going on!

I also feel guilty for feeling this way. After all there are people fighting a war that is a lie. American soldiers fighting and dying everyday for this worthless administration. My inability to freely gamble online is nothing in the face of this but damn I feel an inexplicable frustration.

That said I want to crawl back under my covers and forget about the rest of this day and the next and the one after that one.

That is me under the covers with one of my cats saying get up and feed me!

:lolup: :lolup: :lolup:

Tell me about Slingo. Where do I find it? What is it?

I am playing The Treasures of Montezuma. It is from Big Fish Games. I find it addicting. Beat it in normal mode. Now on to hard mode.

Just go to slingo.com. It's not the same as gambling but it can be a quick fix.

I am not entirely sure but have been staying away from Slingo as it has a bad rep because of scumware.

I stick with Pogo...

Here is a great site to download some games, Outdated URL (Invalid).

You can download their games and play in demo mode. That should keep you busy for a while.

We just spent three days and two nights at the Spirit Mountain Casino in Oregon. Four star rooms for $69. Buffet is great but long lines. The sitdown penny slots and new generation video slots near the tables were paying well. Roulette was good ($10 minimum inside and outside bets) Worked up to some $100 minimum blackjack hands. Won't mention poker but all I lost in the end was my budget... mickey dee's on the way back to the airport. $98 roundtrip tix to portland, $24 a day rental car. Less than a grand for the whole trip including losses. Never made it to the coast, got high centered in Grande Ronde.

Reno first week in April, and I'm staying out of the poker room:D EasyRhino mentioned the $100 first hour slotplay guarantee at Peppermill, we'll go there for a day. Package deals right now are under $300 for roundtrip, two nights, two people. The buffet at Eldorado is awesome!

Vegas in June or July. (My girl met the pres. and cfo of a major chain there and we're gonna try to get comped a suite for a few days, but we'll go regardless) The package deals are great. Rio seafood buffet is a must, might try to catch Prince's show.

After that we plan to just go B&M four times a year 3 to Reno and once to Vegas. Car's paid off so it's easy enough to save three or four hundred a month for my part. Looking forward to some downtown action, mainstreet station, jackie's place too.

Bonus whoring all the rtg's I can find so I can post a progressive screenshot that sucks:what:

Looking for some open source slot code so I can develop my own fun machine.

Working fulltime at a regular job :eek:

Sweet. Assuming you have a car, play some cards at the Alamo truckstop off the freeway on the eastern side of Sparks. It's friggin' sweet, in a low-rent kind of way. They also have two low-limit poker tables, but we won't talk about those.
