Well, I arrived for the 2nd round feeling pretty good. I figured if I didn't actually win, place or show, then I had a pretty good shot at best single round. I didn't do as well the second time around, scoring 2,940. I didn't feel too bad about it, then DSD told me he talked to the lady inputting the scores and the highest score for the first round was 5500. I didn't score THAT well.
I didn't hit any Sizzling Sevens the second round, but I didn't do too badly.
So, DSD and I played slots for a while and then retired to the room to change. (There was still a slight chance I could win, and I wanted to look nice for the pictures!) We went back down to the floor and played for a bit before arriving at the bar for the award ceremony.
The awards started at #20. When they reached #10 I figured I was probably out of it. Imagine my shock and surprise when they called my name at #4! Wow! #4! I never win anything.
I collected my winnings (DSD taking pictures the entire time, watch for them) and then had a bite to eat and a couple of free drinks and returned to the slot machines. I then won a quick $50 and another $120 after changing machines. DSD's luck wasn't as good today as yesterday's, but he still held his own.
So I am back in the hotel room, writing this post, enjoying the fact that we have spent 2 weekends in the last 2 months dumping money into these machines and we are about $1000 up. Not bad.
It is probably a good thing we live several hours away or this could become an unhealthy addiction.
It is also a good thing that college football starts soon, because I won't have time for gambling on the weekends while my Gators are playing.
I certainly hope your weekend was as great as mine (not counting the fire scare!)
