A friend in of mine had to take a two hour long test one day that was just minutes away. So thinking like the true gambler i am, i told her i would go along with her for the ride and she could drop me off at the Casino and could meet there and have the awesome buffet for lunch when she was done. .
I went with a bankroll of $300 on a quest to win! I headed straight to the penny slots and did a search for the WMS slots, my personal favorites. Things were not going well at all. It seemed like everything i touched was cursed!
After about an hour and a half of playing i was down to my last $20 bucks. I decided to go outside on the deck that over looks a river and is the smokers lounge just to bide my time for awhile. I kept telling myself "don't you dare go to the ATM machine and stick to your guns girl".
I went back inside the casino and put i swear to God my very last $20 on King of Africa Slot. I have played this a zillion times at casinos and have never really won too much to brag about. The Bonus round can trigger up to 100 Free Spins if all 5 symbols appear on the reels. Out of all the WMS slots i have played i have never had 100 spins and equated the odds of getting it to a Royal Flush on Video Poker.
Minimum bet is .50 per spin for all lines so i decided to up the ante to $1.00 a spin cuz it was due or die time! I had about as much faith of winning at this point as a trying to win the National Lottery. The machine wasn't doing too bad and was keeping me alive with little wins but not enough to recover my losses that's for sure.
Then like a miracle from the Casino Gods i landed all 5 symbols for 100 free spins! I literally could not believe me eyes! In fact i thought noooooooo this slot must not give 100 spins for all symbols because there is no way i triggered that many. Across my screen flashes 100 Free Spins and i was omg thrilled to death!
Here is a ss of my balance after it was over:
Not only did i win back my money but had a few bucks ahead. I took a few more spins and cashed out at $340. Now at this point i was hoping my friend would show up soon so i wouldn't blow back what i won.
I dabbled on another machine betting the lowest denomination of .40 to just to pass the time and finally my friend showed up about 20 minutes later and i walked away with $320. I was happy to get my money back and had just enough where lunch was one me!Rated:
That's a pretty nice chunk of change ya got there lips. I have spent many a dollar at Hollywood and lost. Hollywood Casino has a really cool concept with all the props from movies in the lobby. Maybe one day I'll get there again and pull off a win.Rated:

Last April i went to Las Vegas and stayed at Caesars Palace. What i love the most about staying at this casino is the pool! They have the most gorgeous Roman themed pool in all of Las Vegas next to Mandalay Bay. I think half of the people sneak into this pool that are staying at other hotels!

This was the view from my hotel room and that is only half of the view of the enormous grounds:
This one is in front of the enormous golden lions:
I also saw Rod Stewart at the Colosseum at Caesars while i was there and he put on a fabulous show.
If the pool is part of your attraction when going to Vegas ya got to stay at Caesars at least once! The drinks at the pool were a bit pricey at $24 each for a large! But at least it kept us out of the casinos for awhile. I did most of my gambling at night and walked the Strip to a different Casino every night.
Where do you normally stay when you are in Vegas or if you haven't been yet do you have any top picks?
I actually have never been to Las Vegas. Um $24 for a large drink huh? Well, I will need several so I guess I'll have to have a casino fund and a drinks fund. I want to check out the Venetian and the Paris. I hear they are both absolutely beautiful. Those are my picks oh but I'd have to see that gorgeous pool at Caesars.

- I had some awesome pics at Venetian and the Paris but i when i got a new cell i lost all my pics .
The Venetian is absolutely breathtaking with imported Italian marble and a replica of the Michael Angelo's Sistine Chapel. Oh and the gondola rides..........sigh.
Paris has an at dusk lighting throughout the casino with a blue sky and fluffy white clouds ceiling. The cafes are lined up in a cobblestone outdoor theme. You would swear you are in Paris. The Eiffel Tower there is a must see and one of the restaurants overlook the strip with a view of Bellagio Casino and the fountain with the dancing water that sways to the music will give you goose bumps.

We only have one in Texas, and it's rogue, at that. The Kickapoo Lucky Eagle Casino in Eagle Pass. I enjoyed going there but have only been once. They still get to operate even though they and Texas are at odds as to their legality. We did have a riverboat gambling operation where they would go so far out into the Gulf of Mexico where they were in international waters or something, but it apparently was crap and didn't last long.

There is a move on in Texas though to vote in legalized gambling to bring back $85,000,000 to Texas that Texans are spending over in Oklahoma and Louisiana. All we have now is some horse racing and bingo parlors.
oh, almost forgot, and the lottery.
Amazing pics Lips - it looks incredibly HUGE
I've never been to Vegas but I would absolutely love to go. Not sure where I would stay - anywhere recommended I guess but I would have to see the bellagio fountains at night for sure.
My little bro was there a couple of years ago and they played Time to say goodbye to the dancing fountains which was one of my Mum's favourite songs. He couldn't talk for 45 minutes afterwards...it moved him so much.
Chilly - the big ole State of Texas needs to really jump in on the band wagon and start getting some big name casinos!
Blue - That is a beautiful song and i can see how your bro was overcome with emotion especially on such a sentimental level. What really struck me was how everyone on the Strip would come to a complete stop as soon as the dancing water would start. I swear with all the hustle and bustle of crowds you could hear a pin drop everyone was so mesmerized.
The first time i saw the dancing water the song below played and to be honest i got a bit choked up and felt embarrassed that i was reacting too silly. So its good to know i'm not alone and it does really touch a lot of peeps.

Hey Lips...just for you! My hubby & I went to our local land based casino Saturday night, hadn't been in a couple months so I was really itching to go. We always start out with $150 each...most of the time we stick to that. Within the first 15 minutes of hitting the floor...I hit this awesome spin on the WMS Sabertooth game. If you've never played it...when you get the sabertooth head with the big fangs on the 1st reel...and you get any wilds on the following reels (the other sabertooth), they expand to give you wilds on that entire column. Well...I got wilds ALL THE WAY ACROSS...woo-hoo! I was mad at myself tho because I usually bet $2 minimum on this game but had dropped down to $1 because I had just about played out the $10 I put in. Sadly....it was all downhill after this tho because I couldn't hit anything worthwhile to safe my life. Ended up playing this all back when I lost my initial $150 but that was ok...we had a great time! Going back at the end of the month to spend a couple nights because I have a free room to use up I get comped free rooms in the lodge quite often but we can't always get away to use them.
