I thought this might make an interesting topic since nobody has to worry about getting into their cars and driving home from the casino after a night at the online casinos. As for me, my beverage of choice is hands down.... COFFEE! It helps me to stay alert and therefore I can keep my mind in a positive state. I find that when I'm tired and/or drinking alcohol, I get careless with the bet size and also stay on a machine much longer than I would have if I were fresh. This almost always has a negative result for my bankroll except one time I can remember that I was way up one night and wanted to keep playing because my luck had been so good that day at 32red. I was playing Gopher Gold @ $5.00/spin and was extremely tired. My ex-wife called while I was playing and I turned the speakers off and I layed my head down on the desk as I semi-listened to her rants and raves while I watched the screen and hoped she'd get done bitching and end the call. I just kept pressing the spin button while pretending to be interested in her conversation and all of a sudden I see the 5-dynamites line up and start flashing together. I had no idea what the win amount was so I raised my head off the desk and looked to see that I had just hit $5,000.00. Do you think I told her? Not a chance in hell! Suddenly I became wide awake again and headed for the cash-in button asap. That was the icing on the cake for my best outing ever (so far) at the online casinos. Cashed out around 14K on the slots that day. I'd like to see another one of those days soon. Getting back to the subject at hand.............. do many of you get drunk while playing? If so, how does that affect your play?
