I’d Be a Winner if it Weren’t for Losing

I’d Be a Winner if it Weren’t for Losing

Welcome to the loser’s corner, yes that is me! I have roamed the Midwest in search of lady luck leaving me with one serious question: “where the freak is she”? How can I possibly write a blog when I have nothing to report….then it hit me……losers have stories too. In fact, there are more loser stories than winning ones. Misery loves company right, besides know wants to think they are the only biggest loser in the world.

We have all heard of the expression “everything she touches turns to gold” well I have one for the underdog, deadbeat, defeated, failure, flunkee that I am: everything I touch turns crashes and burns!

Talk to some of my friends and they would say I was just acting like a spoiled brat because I am so use to winning more often than the average bear. Although this may be true it doesn’t mean I don’t have the right to pout does it?

It has been nearly a month and I have been to Rivers and Harrah’s Casino in Joliet, crossed the Illinois state line to Indiana and headed to Horseshoe Casino and Blue Chip. Nada folks, I mean I was lucky to hit a cherry on my machine.

Alright, I need to shake this losing streak and try a Casino I have not played at in a very long time. Hmm, then it hits me, Four Winds Casino in New Buffalo Indiana.

I grab my side kick gambling buddy Ms. froggy and we take an hour and half road trip there and trust me when I tell you, I didn’t have to twist her arm either! On the ride their we stop to grab a snack at the only gas station we know of that has Chicago style popcorn…..wow and let me tell you it is good filled with cheesy and caramel corn. It has become a must-have on our Indiana trips.

I really do love Four Winds, it is a massive resort filled with shops, restaurants and plenty of gaming. I went over to video poker played nickels, dimes and quarters and went through $200 in about 30 minutes’ time.

Time to change my game play and tryout brand new slots I have never played like Sons of Anarchy and The Walking Dead II and hit nothing. I have one last chance left with $50 in purse when I spot The Big Bang Theory slot.

Here it goes all or nothing…….and nothing it was. I walk away with my head hung low and my spirits even lower when find Froggy winning up a storm. Well at least I know who’s buying dinner tonight.

“Here it goes all or nothing…….and nothing it was.”

  • Thanks Zuga! Winning a couple jackpots would be great :)
  • I been following your blogs lips and seems like you been on a good winning streak for a while there. And as we all know this cant last and every streak has to end. Hope you get back on track and win few more JPs!
  • Make My Day - I hope your luck turns around i think i may have made a small free spins comeback! I also started playing more Video Poker again. Hey Geno - thanks for the suggestion i will definitely make a mental note. Because i always stay at Harrah's Laughlin and it is at the complete other from Riverside i often never make it down the river due to making to many pit stops along the way!
  • I can relate. I shudder to think of the amounts of spins I've taken lately, and gotten nothing out, or tried again only to find a zero, even though I won. It's true, though, if you can't afford to lose, don't play. It's just so compelling, though..."because its there"! If I never spin one more spin, the rest of my life, I will still likely feel an amount of impact. But I also still swear..."I needed at least that much, in therapy", and in that sense...I don't regret it. Most of the people - I mean, 99% of them, have been nice, and the play has cheered me up, so....maybe it's worth the money, anyways.
  • Dear, dear Lipstick, I know a place you should visit. It's a bar at Don Laughlin's Riverside Casino in Laughlin, NV. and it's called the Loser's Lounge. It's a great place to drink and dance away your troubles. The regular customers are the busboys, the cocktail waitresses and, yes, the gamblers who have either enjoyed the favors of Lady Luck or who have been kicked in the shins. I liked your column. Better luck in the future.
