I was having a good session with VP - i hit 2 royals from a couple of hundred quid deposit and i was up to around 4K.

I hit the roulette table and decided to lump 100 on 23. On about the 3rd or 4th spin (i cant remember, i was hammered) it came in!! About 3.5K or something like that. :D :D

I was hooked for quite a while after that....

I don't make too many crazy bets....but I guess I'd say last summer at VIP Casinos the night I won 7K, I got up to over $3,000 and got brave (and drunk) and was betting $9 a spin, which was their max bet. Got lucky and hit the feature and won almost 5 grand on it. And I did cashout...and it was a $25 deposit which is even sweeter.

about 200 on a BJ hand.


I did work for this rich fellow once who would blow an average persons salary in one night at the casino. He would then tell staff about it the next day or tell them he was too broke to give a pay hike. Now through bad investments, excessive gambling, greed etc he has lost a lot of it and those staff members don't feel at all sorry for him.

Hi all,

as you may be aware bacarat offers decent odds and often when it hits on one side it will hit on that side for a while and then change.

I was using a strategy where I increased my bets going one way for as long as I thought it would last and then I'd change the other way and that's when the craziness started.

I've since made larger bets but at the time i was in new territory because what I did was bet like $50 on bank and if it hit player (again, since it had started out on that side) then on the next hand I'd bet $50 (to recover loss) and another $100 (because in my mind at the time, I thought i'd never get a better chance than now for it to come up bank) - so make enough of a bet to make it profitable: and it didn't hit ... sigh. so I went $150 to recover loss and another $300 ... didn't hit.

finally went up to where I had more than $900 invested and it finally hit and I played like that all night long (at a riverboat here in Kansas City) until they closed down the place at 5 am and this Asian man had been betting along with me (for every $5 chip I was betting, he was betting $25) and anyway they ended up prying us both away from the table and making us leave ...

next morning (2 hours later and still on the rush...) it opened up and guess who was at the door waiting for it to open as I approached?

Yep, you guessed it. He and I stayed and played another half a day and to this day though I've won more at times ... I've never experienced such a roller coaster ride as that and even though we both finished way up ... I've never tried it again because its just too damn hard on my nerves betting those kinds of stakes.

I forgot about this one . Business was bad a few years back but there was one NFL week that seemed like a shoe in, I went balls to the walls and bet 5k each on 9 games, didn't know how I was going to cover it if I crashed but hit 8 out of 9 games, cleaned my book out, he had to pay me in 3 installments, isn't that funny, he pays me over time and I get no interest, if i can't cover it I loose my knees??:lolup:

cool, it's always been a dream of mine to hit a number with £100 on it, then a double or triple would be nice :) (greedy!)

Once in a B&M casino in London I hit 26 with £50 on it, now whenever I hit big I always double my bet, on this occasion I was so excited and also they changed dealers that I didn't. Yeap you guessed it, 26 came in again, still £3500 from 2 spins made my night thank you very much.

Good times.......

My craziest bet was on accident. I was playing a $5.00 per coin video poker machine at the Mohegan Sun in Connecticut. By accident I hit the max bet button which was very close to the "bet 1" button. At first I thought "What the hell, it's only 5 coins.. $25.00. But the max bet was 30 coins... or $150.00 on that hand. Didn't even get a pair to break even. Man! was I pissed!

From Golden Palace, who would've known?

Not sure if this is considered a real bet. I was playing bj at Golden Palace and was up about $500 including bonus. But in order to cash out, the Terms said i cant just wager the bonus (which is what i had been doing) and that i'd have to wager my own money. so i put about $500 down which was just enough to meet their terms and wager about $5 bucks of my own money. I put the money down and was hesitant on pressing the button. But when I did, I hit a BJ and my brother and I went crazy ahhaha.

From then on, i've bet $200-$300 hands :), not just in GP but other online casinos.

Not actually a big bet, but it's definitely the oddest one I've ever made.

I had 10-7 on BJ, dealer had 6. Instead of standing, I hit the "DOUBLE" button.

YIKES :eek2: :eek2: :eek2:

Thank god I hit a 3, and dealer busted :D

LMAO...sounds exactly like a seinfeld episode! :D

[edit]He wouldn't happen to run an online casino would he??? If not, he should...he has the tactics down pat :lolup:

[edit2]Tantalos....I feel you there...I've lost probably $50 from 'misclicks'. I don't see why (wait, I see why) MG/RTG/etc don't have a box pop up saying "you have hard 17-20, are you SURE you want to hit|double|surrender?"

I remember some years ago I was in a B&M casino bullshi**ing with the dealer...I had a hard 20 in front of me and was joking around, took a few seconds trying to decide whether or not to double....(yea right)...Anyways....can you guess the next card out of the shoe??? Of course it was an ace.....we all cracked up ;)

Ouch - vul with that bet gfkostas :eek2: :eek2:

Errmm..as far as i remember, i think i cashed out about 4k - I wasnt much of a slots player at that time (around 2 years ago) and I think I went back to VP and was spinning the max bet - 25, and lost quite a bit. :oops: :oops:

I have also lost a double totalling 200$.I had 10 against 9 and the next card was a small one so dealer cleaned up and left my agitated in a abyss that took me a while to recover
