This Month's Kicker

About a week prior to Hurricane Katrina, I was taking advantage of some comps for a free hotel room at a casino on the Gulf Coast. Determined to stick to my budget, but at the end of my bankroll, I was more than a little frustrated at the number of standard deviations this bank of video poker machines was revealing to me. I’d been using the same three Jacks or Better quarter machines for at least 8 hours each of my three days I was there. I knew I couldn’t really expect a Royal – even at 1,000 hands an hour, I just wasn’t playing enough to expect one to cycle through. Well, as luck would have it – my cash was all out. Gone. So, I went back to my car and saw three crumpled dollars in my ashtray (where I had my credit card stashed to keep me from trying for an easy cash advance). So, I went back in with my 3 dollars and fed them into the machine. I was already down 1,200 dollars, 3 more weren’t going to kill me. With 12 credits, I played max coins for two bets and got nothing. With 2 credits left, I played them both, and got two pair. With 4 credits, I played 2 credits again – got two pair. With 6 credits, I played max coins and got the progressive for $1,200 and change. I didn’t leave a winner – but I broke even, by the hair of my chinny-chin-chin.
