Greetings! I started this thread for gamblers like myself to network. My parents and I usually visit different casinos in California and Nevada to gamble, then eat from the food comps we earn. Thankfully the food is usually average or, depending on the restaurant, amazing. Casinos are of course primarily for gambling, but you can visit different restaurants and there also other services like game rooms for children who are underage to gamble.

I was wondering if any ATS members visit casinos to gamble. Normally I do profit from my what I brought however I foolishly end up losing it back to the casino. A few weeks ago I stupidly played $283 dollars I won because I was bored, and that was on the same machine-Betti the Yetti-which I usually win a lot of money from.

Anyhow I would love to hear what you have to say about casinos. Has anyone hit the jackpot, or most likely lost to the house? Anyone eat any good food at the restaurants?

I'm a gamblin' man. Never won more than a few hundred at a time though.

Growing up in Reno, I was raised on buffet comps

Casinos in Reno have much better food then their California counterparts. Yesterday I had this beefy but burnt hamburger from Thunder Valley. It was pricey too! At $10 for just the burger; with both cheese and bacon costing $1 apiece, and the soda being about $3. All I can say is thank God for food comp. Because the Subway located within the casino is not only much better but cheaper as well.

I hit the progressive on Megabucks last time I threw in a few dollars. I cashed out the ticket and put it in my wallet.

It completely disappeared! To this day I have no clue how it disappeared. It was frustrating! But a good reminder that in casinos, even when you win, you don't win.

Good luck and hope you hit big someday!

That sounds like something from the Amityville Horror. In the book and film Kathy's younger brother, who's about to get married, money mysteriously vanishes! When you mentioned your winnings vanishing I remembered that scene.

Also, I agree with what you saying about losing, even if you win. What people have to understand is that you really do win! However, it's usually a fraction on how much you bet. Say if you bet $1 but win 50 cents or less. You won money back but only a small percentage.

Yeah it was the strangest thing..

I put it snug in the inside sleeve of my wallet, folded it, and back in my pocket. Nothing else was missing. Never ever has anything disappeared from my wallet and I am super OCD making sure I never lose my cards, ID, work tools, or anything I keep with me.

I just took it as a sign to stay away from casinos for a while.

Can you help me understand the point of going to a casino? I guess I just have a hard time putting my hard-earned money in a machine with only having a small chance of winning.

I do want to go to Vegas soon though...Mainly bc airfare is only $60 round trip and I've never been there.

The concept is...you're paying for the entertainment that comes from the feeling of "you might win!"

It's a horrible addiction.

Yeah, it's like you know you'll most likely lose but you might win the "big one"! Or at least make some profit. My parents and I usually spend less then one hundred dollars when we gamble. As I mentioned before you do win, but it's usually a fraction on how much you're betting. For me any profit, doesn't matter if it's a little over what I came with, is good for me. Unless some miracle happened for me, I doubt I'll win something so big where the staff hand pay you at the machine.

I live about 40 mins from atlanic city and although the city is dieing there are still a few casinos that always seem to be quite busy. I've had some pretty good luck on. My birthday I won 1200 on roulette and a month ago I went and threw 20 bucks on A slot and won 700$. Can't complain about that.

That's awesome. Hopefully I'll win some big money tonight. Thunder Valley has a deal of food tonight, and I'm in the mood to wander around, play slots, and meet random strangers. You won't believe how many bizarre yet nice people play slots.
