A couple of good ones!

The lighter side... playing for entertainment, less concerned about "the math."

Been beaten up so badly, I decided to get a little discipline in order. So I hit this just now with my Ultra conservative version of Martingale Clone. Only a 97 percent if that machine, but it is the quarter one that pays correctly 800 for bet one for the Royal. After 8 straight losses ignoring pushes, I added one line of play. Hit this with my 20 bucks freeplay that was almost gone. As you can see, I had lost 8 straight at least 7 times to be betting 8 lines

I’m still at the casino. Overnight tonite with the Mrs. she is at the far end playing about a 5 minute walk away. That’s how big Mohegan Sun is. Foxwoods is even bigger. At least have a high end beautiful top floor room with a view. Trying to be ultra careful with covid related stuff.

Final rule and the hardest to follow...... Don’t give more than 20 percent of what you are ahead back. I will have my banker/the Mrs. make sure I follow that one tonight.

Worth reviving thread for reminder. I'm tired of the Give Back Session. I recently gave back 100%. You recently gave back over 500%. We must stash our winnings away. And preferably, leave the premises.

you’ll never know when the very next hand would have been a RF had you played it. About once every 40,000 sessions, that would be the case. But you’ll never know which one of the 40,000 because you stopped just before that RF happened.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Obviously, he means hands. This is the classic dilemma. Keep going if your risk appetite is high. My Bally's quarter RF came after -$140, which is a hell of a lot of quarters. My $750 RF came at the very end of the day. I wanted to switch machines after it gave me a nice quad, but a couple had a choke hold on the carousel's other two. Casino masochism is sometimes rewarded. But we're sweating negative games and should be satisfied after a nice positive day over multiple hours of play.
