    Not at an online casino, but Casino City's Industry Analyst Brad Polan (bpolan) hit 13 numbers for a keno progressive down at Foxwoods. I think it came to about USD$50k after taxes.

    I have left the industry and earned a law degree at Indiana University Bloomington, Maurer School of Law. Here are ways to stay in touch with me:

    No such luck...I did win $2 on a scratch ticket. I parlayed that into buying five more which netted me -$12. Guess I showed the Mass. state lottery system.

    Believe it or not, I had a friend once with whom I went to Las Vegas with who was playing a progressive slot machine and hit the jackpot. But guess what, she didn't play the 3rd quarter for the progressive, so she only ended up with a minimal amount. I you are going to play a progressive machine YOU MUST PLAY ALL COINS!!! She wanted to blow her brains out and I almost let her (just kidding).

    I had to train my husband that whenever you play a progressive machine you have to play all of the coins or else you might regret it. He had a habit of only wanting to play 1 or 2 coins if it called for 3 coins. Surprisingly he listened and won the top prize of the Red-White-Blue 7's slots in Las Vegas. It wasn't a progressive, but the top prize was a nice chunk. That made him a believer in always playing the maximum coins.

    I always play the maximum coins. If my funds are getting low then I will switch to a machine that has a 2 coin maximum instead of 3.

    I prefer the tables in Vegas... But still get drawn into the slot machines. Never hit anything real big. I did manage to dig myself out of a $100 hole I dug last September with back-to-back hits on a penny slot machine winning me $150. I played the $50 back and went home even for the trip.

    No gambling in Montreal, right? What am I going to do with myself?!

    I copied Matted's post to https://www.gpwa.org/forum/any-gambl...al-172105.html and replied there with some information about gambling in Montreal. The move was to ensure that both topics could continue without diverting one another.

    Hi all,

    I got pretty good at counting cards for bj.

    when going to the convention in Vegas a few years ago .. I found a table that had single deck... I had 3rd base. Everything was in my favor. deck was heavy with tens. It was surreal how much it was in my favor.

    Got my ass handed to me. walked away and put in the max coins for a wild cherry slot machine and hit the jackpot. go figure?

    paid for our trip .... and then some. after that I gave up keeping up on counting cards. and trust me .. you have to practice all the time.

    crazy....
    Almost Here! How would you like to be able to get not just one sign up from your player, or even a couple, but every single casino they join from here on? I've a plan that can make that happen and it will likely also tell you every time the player is active within the casino.

    I've never won anything before. I mean NOTHING. The only ticket I've ever dealt with is a speeding ticket. I'm not so sure I could even handle a scratch off. I used to go to the roulette table with some friends. I'd go through my budget in the first 20 minutes.. I'd have to stand (no seats for non-players).. with no free drinks..

    Makes you think doesn't it. One deck = great dealer.

    Never hit a real biggie, but one month last year I received $40 affiliate revenue from Intercasino, so decided to play it out on Triple Olives. Hit the 3 olives for $16.8k

    I have never hit a big progressive... The most I have ever won at a slot machine was at the Fallsview Casino in Niagara Falls for just under $2000.

    But I still have hope...LOL

    I have never hit a big progressive jackpot too.

    And I am paying close attention to the Big Mega Moolah which is $2.8M now.
