Gamble every day… OK, maybe not my best idea!

Last year was “Drink of the Day“… one drink (a different drink) every day for an entire year…not a problem.  So this year I though I’d gamble everyday for the entire year.  I had a plan, limit my daily best to the $1 to $20 range… stick to the limit and win or lose, walk away.  The goal was to track each bet and the win/loss outcome on a spreadsheet and at the end of the year see how things panned out.

For the first couple months or so my plan worked.  With small bets I wouldn’t win much but with small bets I couldn’t lose much either and after a month or so I was pretty much even… but betting small gets boring after a while.  You start to think “If I bet more I can win more and that’s more exciting!”  Well, long story short I found myself betting and losing more than I was comfortable with and after going down about $500 one night I thought maybe this in’t the best idea (I even stopped tracking my results on the spreadsheet ‘cuz I didn’t like the numbers I was seeing :) ) Going to Vegas for a vacation with a couple thousand bucks to play with is one thing but living in Las Vegas (like I do) and betting every day can get you in a hole real fast so I decided to fail this New Year’s resolution before it had a chance to get out of hand…

…next year, hmmmmmm…

Video Slots

Winning on the video slots

When I started this little gambling experiment at the beginning of the year I though video poker would be my best chance for winning and slots to be the worst.. well, so far it has been the exact opposite… Won $110 playing slots today (and a few more dollars on craps) for a total of $108.60 today :)  Check out the spreadsheet for exact figures

Movies and Video Poker

Four Kings in Video Poker

Won $50 on four kings

I love it when gambling pays for my night out; that’s one of the great things about living in Vegas!  Went to the movies tonight (Saw John Carter, thought it was pretty good.  I think the only reason it’s bombing at the box office is that the previews for it sucked.  I had absolutely no interest in seeing the movie until I read some reviews.) and on my way out of the theater I stuck $5 in a video poker machine and after just a few hands I won $50 on four of a kind (four kings)… Movie was $15, drink $5, but walk out of the theater $30 ahead… can’t beat that!
