I have never considered myself to be a skilled gambler because I often catch myself being really clueless in certain moments. It seems that I sometimes lose concentration. But that isn’t new to me; even before, for example, when I was learning to drive. Whenever there wasn’t much traffic and streets were long and wide, I would lose focus easily. In those situations, my foot would go off the pedal. I’m much better in what others consider stressful situation when full attention is required. The last time I played Blackjack at Ruby Slots Casino I wasn’t able to concentrate at all and usually I’m all pumped up for all casino table games, especially Blackjack.
This time I just couldn’t get into the groove. Everything seemed to be okay when I started playing with a $1 bet; I had far more winning hands than losing ones. But then I decided to raise my bet to $5 and it was like I cursed myself. All of a sudden, I couldn’t win any hand even having 19 or 20 over and over again. I thought my play was smart but I was missing something obviously though I still don’t know what that was. I lost almost $40 very easily so I stopped playing even though I really wanted to continue. I had to go out and chill out for a while.
When I got back home I chose to play slots and symbolically I started the “Year of Fortune” slot. And I liked it very much; not many empty spins and I managed to trigger Free Spins, which was cool because then it becomes an 88 pay-line slot. I didn’t win much with this feature – only $8.28, but the whole experience was a very good one; I finished playing with $10 more and the play time was very long. I don’t even know how long I played the slot; I think it was at least one hour. This time when I left the apartment, it was to celebrate this small victory.
