Fourth Place!

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!)

Great luck! and good for you. Yeah it is probably a good thing you aren't around the corner or you would be a pale shadow of yourself from hours in front of the one armed bandit.
Good news on the fire front as while.

Ha Ha! Do you know that they really don't let you use the arms anymore? All button pushing.

And even when we go, we spend the daylight hours at Keesler or wandering around Biloxi. I can't stay in the casino all day & drinking first thing in the morning is just not something I want to even think about.

Congrats! Don't spend all your money in one place!!! :)

Oh, I probably will. I need a new entertainment center to house the new TV that I don't have yet. :-)
