Sometimes time can be your friend

TT, he surely stopped playing the poor performers. I hedge with $3 bets. I like to be in dollar mode, but easily scale back to save. After ninety minutes of play almost obliterating me, it’s a miracle that I am even still around. They are counting on us to have stumbled away in a stupor. It’s satisfying just to have qualified success. BTW, I don’t see any hits by either TT or AP.

I don’t think I have stayed away long enough yet. Family got back home safe and sound. Funny, I had 5 Aces on my mind off and on all day yesterday. Had some use or lose free play so you already know what we did. Free previously booked room was calling.
If I was going to hit them, I didn’t want to do so on JOB or even regular Deuces wild. Here is the result on 97 percent Double Down Stud Bonus Deuces Wild. Dealt ones. Smartly quit at plus 500.

He He He..... I know you can’t get them on JOB but if I saw a combination of aces and deuces on JOB, I would’ve been pretty burned up

Congratulations. My kind of bet. Three or four bucks, big windfall. Your $700 is about triple my BPD quad, but it's a lousier game. You beat the odds, even though you played a good while.

True, but then think of all those JJxxx- 2 pair hands in DW where you get absolutely nothing.

That has kept DW out of my rotation. Too many throw away dud deals frustrate me, despite the pay table.

The 2 pair scenario is a bummer. One reason I like Bonus deuces. Only keep the low pair. I hate going for a full house and not getting even one for an entire session

Congrats just the same olds but I can't help but keep looking at that 5 aces max coin payout.

I hear you. I was playing the usual Martingale clone and bet 7 is where it took me. Being A glutton for punishment, I am actually just backing out of my driveway now for another overnight. It was too nice of a day today to waste at the casino. Still is beautiful outside now. First day in quite a wile without stifling humidity. I actually have a good feeling about the same game even though it is only 97%. I will start out there and see how it goes. I don’t expect it by any means but I have dealt quad deuces on my mind this time. That would pay double what the five Aces did. I actually have a good feeling about the same game even though it is only 97%. I will start out there and see how it goes. I had dinner at home because unfortunately the casino lounge has gone back to open platters of cold cuts cheeses veggies fruit etc. exposed to all the people with no hygiene whatsoever everybody sharing utensils and the utensils are just sitting on top of the food. Disgraceful, especially in this climate. They had done such a good job before. I wrote them a scathing but professional email quite lengthy the other day which was the first day we noticed this Monday night. They also have a chest where you get your own silverware. it’s all in a big pile so naturally all the dirty hands go in there and touch everything before they pick out their knife, fork, and spoon.
