So how was everyone's weekends? I took Monday off work and had a long weekend. My wife flew into Sacramento from Utah (she was at a conference for her work) so I picked her up from the airport and we cruised around Sacramento. We went to a casino (Thunder Valley Casino, an Indian gaming casino about 20 minutes NE of Sacramento). We aren't really serious gamblers - every once in a while I'll buy lottery tickets at a gas station or something, and we never go in to a Casino with more than like $50.



This day, I went in with $20 and my wife $41. I put $5 in a machine and lost it all. I then put my last $15 into a $0.02 machine and it paid out over $400!!! My wife gave me $7 and I doubled it and gave her $14 back, then she played a $20 and cashed out at $36. We played a little more, won some and lost some. All in all, we had walked it with $61 between us and walked out with almost $550 - I've never won that much before! Sweet!!!



I gave my wife $200 of my winnings (just because I love her so much ;) ) and we went down to old towne Sacramento and took some of those old fashioned style western pictures. Then I took her out to a full dinner at The Elephant Bar - drinks, salads, dinner, and desert. Pretty cool!



With my last $100, I bought an aux-in kit for my factory radio, and then added a speaker phone kit for my cell phone. Check it out here:

Good for you, just do the same thing every time. Start with a small amount that can be lost, and who knows. Regards,

Sweet! I'm such a cheapskate I stick to the $2 tables and the $0.01-0.05 slots... ;)

I never do good at the casino. Most I've ever walked out with is like $37. I see to be a good luck charm for the people I go with but I don't win anything ever

All casinos that offer gambling for real money should be legal. How to check if the casino had permission for its operation? You should first check how it is regulated. Reputable gambling sites will be always happy to show you a license proving you do not deal with the fraudsters. Not very many resources are allowed in Europe, but I believe Rich Prize casino is among them.
