I hit the secondary jackpot in Las Vegas at Casino Royale on a promotional machine. I was furious that they wouldn't cash me out. Because it was a promotional machine, they only cashed out the primary jackpot.

Biggest thing I ever won was a little over $100.00 in a 50/50 raffle.

Whoopee!

There was one time I was taking a ten question True or False quiz. I didn't study for it, and I was thinking about just guessing on every one. Well I changed my mind and decided to just try my best to answer the questions right.

WRONG!

I missed 10 out of 10 questions. I would have had better luck if I would have just put true for every answer, then I would have got 5 out of ten...:( This is my life in a nutshell. I posted a lifelong story about my self in the PWII thread, but that will be hard to find.

If it has never happened before, I'm about to do it.
If you think something can't get F'd up, I'm about to do it.
If you think we have a championship team and I'm in it, we are about to lose.
If there is a way to mess up your life, I have tried them all.
The better my odds, the more I lose.
And if your were born into my family and saw my father, then you were born pi$$ed.

I have hit many mini jackpots on slots in Various Casino's throughout the country and one large one:

Mohegan Sun: $12,960.00 on Green 7 with 12x and 12x (144x green seven which was $90) That was a Dollar slot, $3 a pull.

Hit $2500.00 on a Quarter machine which is the main jackpot, it was 3 Stars on a Red, White and Blue 7's machine

Plus many $250 to $1000 little hits

Venetian in Vegas: over $2,000.00 Hit 7 with 2 Triple Diamonds on a wheel of Fortune machine. Same night I hit the $1000.00 on the top of the wheel on a different machine

A lot of times the little hits you play back and try to win more.

I am up about quite a bit Lifetime on all my Casino play, I go about 3-4 times a year.

I never hit a lotto outside of a few $100 scratch off hits


Got to be in it to win it.

I have won a portrait worth about $300 in a drawing.

I put $1 in a drawing at work and won $100 ticket to Texas De Brazil (a place to eat)

I win more than I lose at the horse track but I don't always win each time i go. I get a racing form and I have a formula I use that usually gets me in the money. I showed some guy at work how to do it and he quit and now handicaps races. He won $9K on one race. The most I have won in one day is around $1k. I missed some pretty big purses by not boxing them. I usually go after the trifecta or superfecta. I can pick lots of winners but when you get there if they lose by a nose you almost have to bet $100 to win on them and they are bet down so much they really don't pay.

I did pick Alphabet Soup to beat Cigar back in the 90's and Cigar was bet down to 1-5 amd Alphabet Soup went off something like 16-1. I started boxing the horse after that because I had the other two horses in the superfecta but was down so I only placed a $2 bet.

I did a quiz for the Dallas Morning News and had to answer some basketball questions and get them all right. They picked my number and flew me to the Staples Center when the Mavericks played the last game of the season. I got seats down on the floor and they flew me out free and put me up at the Crown Plaza Resort.........which was NICE!!!!

Also was the lucky call number to a few radio shows and won different albums, shirts and what not.

I feel a lot luckier than the guy on the Andy Griffin show who was so unlucky that they fixed the drawing so he would win and he reached in the hat to pick a number and pulled out the hat size and lost. That was a funny one.

The thing is you have to enter something to win something so take it from me and enter a few things in life..........you just never know when your number will be called.
