Every couple of years we go to the Ho Chunk Casino in WI Dells. We went in January and came about about $265 ahead, that's the most ever I think. We usually go in with $50 each, and when it's gone, it's gone, or if we get ahead, WE'RE gone!
I forgot the casino thing...Went to Niagara Falls with the kids, my eldest had just turned 19. She wanted to see what a casino was like, so I agreed to take her and said we would only spend what I had on me, $15. I told her it would all be gone before we left because you just don't really win at these places. We walked out with $200 She has buged me ever since from time to time, wanting to go back for another lesson!

I never play. Chances to win are just too slim. Of course if you don't try, you'll never win. But I'm more of a calculated person.
