Winning in Vegas = New watch (Pic)...

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Been in Vegas since Wednesday the 10th, and was supposed to be home yesterday, but due to bad weather in Oklahoma, I am unable to return until tomorrow.
Long story short, I once a ton of money and bought the watch I have been wanting for a while:


I might be coming to Vegas more often now

What you bought something?
The rule of thumb is usually when you win, you have to be stupid enough to hang around some more in the casino and lose all the winning money and some more. What kind of gambler are you?

By the way, I just won 200 bucks from Blackjack at the casino last night too. The highlight of that play was when I asked for a hit when I got 17 and actualy got a 21 *phew*

I hope the guy in front of you didn't need that 4, one of my friends did something similar last year and almost got punched by the guy next to him

You are correct sir.

Now I didnt just buy a watch, lets just say that I went out a couple nights to some very nice gentleman friendly clubs

Since Wednesday, I have attended CES, the AVN (**** convention, wow!), two gentlemans clubs, Cirque Du Soleil, Bite (show with topless women, it was all I needed to know), The Amazing Johnathan (comedian), few clubs, awesome buffets, stayed at the MGM Grand and am Currently at the Wynn, gambled and won and had a plethora of drinks.

I guess I can say that I had quite the Vegas experience (and everything else that happened here stays here, sorry).

I was playing blackjack at the MGM. Started off playing with friends, had the best case of beginners luck, they lost all of their chips ($100 each) and I won a ton of hands. This was at a $5 minimum table also.
Took my winnings and headed over to a $25 minimum table. Again, great luck for a first timer.
The first table with friends, I turned $100 into a little over $400, once I got hot, I did $20-$30 bets. The second table, 3 of the first 5 deals I got Blackjack. That $400 was about $2200 when I left (2 hours worth of playing).
I don't know if it was luck or the 20 crown/cokes I had, but something was good that day.
I didn't have luck after that. I had allocated $500 for gambling. The first day I won, the rest of the days it seemed my money flew away.
I bought the watch at some store in the Venetian, got it for about $550 under the actual retail WITH the tax included, so I was happy about that.

In summary, I turned $100 to $2200 in under 5 hours the first day, and lost $400 Thursday/Friday.

I thought that winning was the best part, but in all honesty, the strip clubs were the best time we had.
Coming from OK, we have some really bunk strip clubs. Really nasty feeling, dirty. But it didn't feel that way here. I wouldn't want to use the word "classy" for a strip joint, but it was nice.
If you are ever in Vegas, hit up Seamless.
