I've had some great runs this summer
but just to preface this post....Yes, I have since lost most of what I won back to the various casinos..with the exception of paying off the balance on my Visa card.
At the Mohegan Casino (ct.) in July, was playing a .25 cent pick'm poker machine at the rate of 5 quarters per hand for about 30 minutes and just holding my own....had a sudden urge to hit the 'bet max' button (100 quarters) and got a straight flush for $6,000.00.
It was the first and last time I had played a hand for that much. Of course uncle Sam got 1/4th of it...but still it was amazing.
Funny thing is, I really don't know why I hit the max button, it really was hardly even a conscious effort. Prior to the hit, a friend had suggested to me I might want to start using a certain phrase twice a day when alone. The phrase goes like this, "God, if you are real, please reveal yourself to me"...twice a day for 30 days.
I had been saying it for about 30 days when the hit came up. Honestly now..could it be true? hmmmm.
Also had some great runs in September. As long as I've been gambling that is the way my wins have come...in streaks. During an unlucky time for me I think I could bet a million dollars and lose every dollar..but during a streak it comes in like a flood..of course the streaks don't come often enough
I had visited the new MGM Foxwoods and the Mohegan in Ct about 9 times in 14 days during September. I won 7 of those times. Of particular note was a night at the Mohegan when playing a $50.00 craps table (bought in for $200.00) and walked out with over $5,000.00. in little less than an hour. During a time while I was shooting the dice, a girl at the table was making lots of money playing the 11 & 12...As a note of appreciation she threw a $50.00 bet on the 'hard 10' for me...wouldn't you know it, the very next roll was a 5 5 hard ten ...it paid $350.00
I love remembering those great nights.... but since then, as I said at the start, it's all gone...I'm back to earth. Now just waiting for the next run to start
