Casino Update

Well, let me first start by saying that my hubby and I aren't as young as we once were. Going out to TWO casinos that are an hour apart on a WEEKNIGHT after he already worked late, may not have been the best idea. We hit the first one fairly quickly and left with our $20 gas card and up $46!

It was nearing 8pm by this time and my hubby was ready to head home. But I was persistent. It didn't help that we had to drive right by our exit off of the highway to go to the other casino. We pushed on though and made our way before the rain hit.

We got our free play money and after a bit of a roller coaster of ups and downs, we ended up leaving up $120 total! I was so excited. I already deposited the money in our account this morning. Even though we got home around midnight, it was a fun treat. Not one that we're likely to do again in the near future though!

Also, on a side not... I thought we were in a recession. Both casinos were PACKED! We couldn't believe how many people there were for a Wednesday night. Kind of crazy, but I guess people want to try their luck and maybe hit it big. I get it. If it weren't for the free play money or gas card though, you can bet we would have been at home and in bed by about 9pm :-)

So far this week has been going pretty good. Here's hoping it finishes off that way too!


  1. Awesome! I was hoping you would have a successful night.

  2. I had my fingers crossed for you and it looks as if it paid off, congrats.....

  3. Glad you ended up "UP"! We have SLOTS here in wee London, Ontario at the same location as our horse race track and the parking lot is always FULL!! Not only do these people gamble every day but they also don't seem to have jobs!!! I don't get it!
