Not a big jackpot, but a story from last Friday at Borgata. Playing 9/6 JOB multi strike on my favorite machine. Cold, cold cold. Down $ 750 quickly. Have a 3 PM date with an attractive lady that I don't want to miss, but the machine starts to turn around. Figure, screw it I'll be a little late and run it back up to even. Cash out, get there 15 minutes late and she is still there waiting for me. Guess I know where my priorities lie.

Don't you just hate when that happens. Over the years whenever I had to be somewhere. Like a dinner reservation or a show to go to. The machine kicks in and starts a winning streak. :-D

Staying on a machine long enough for -$750 is alarming, all the more so if it only took a half hour max, which this sounds like. I don’t know how people do it.

Am I missing something? Where did Car say that he lost $750.00 in 30 minutes? Max?

Ted you're right, it wasn't a half , more like one and a half.

Okay. I generously qualified the post with “which this sounds like,” which eluded you. Without the full story, we’re forced into the guesstimate game. Glad to know it was just a $500 hourly fiasco. Before the miracle of the marina recoup.

Um, no. I'm generously qualifying my answer though.....

Well, I can only hope to have such a day. Breaking even when the smoke clears is certainly good times.
