My first trip to Vegas (of many) was 9 years ago. My best friend and I (early 20's) were down to our last $3.50. Not even enough for 2 beers. We threw it in a slot at IP and won $9.50. Bought two beers, threw the couple of bucks left into another slot, won $11.50.... bought two more beers. All in all we turned that $3.50 into 5 beers each through 5 slot machines. That my friend... was my biggest Vegas win.

My biggest win was on the Megabucks machine at Flamingo. I think I won the third level jackpot around $680. That was huge for me. Hope I can replicate it in two weeks.

Ktinca, that was a 'huge' win for you. Congrats.

Love the beer win story.

In early 1991 (before Spring Training) I put $5 on the Minnesota Twins to win the 1991 World Series at 100-1 odds. I only bet $5 bucks on them since they came in last place in 1990.

In October I was at Game 7 of the World Series and went nuts watching them win and was also thrilled to win $500 (kicking myself for being cheap and only betting $5). To top it off I got my picture in Sports Illustrated when then published a picture of the scoreboard and I was sitting in front of it.

Last year we arrived in vegas, checked into our hotel and started walking the strip. Walked into Harrahs, sat down at a cherry $0.25 machine put in a $5 and pulled. Didn't hit; next pull I won $680!!! Was totally awesome! Won $680 from $1.50 :-]

Recently on a trip to new Orleans I played black jack from 11am on a Thursday to 7 am on Friday and turned $480 into $160,000. The reason it was $480 was because I had already lost the $1,000 I took to gamble on so I had to hit up the ATM! I was playing at Harrahs new Orleans.

Won $7500.00 at Four Queens playing $.50 Triple Strike slot last year - and brought it all home! The year before, won $2000.00 at Hooters playing $.25 Double Gold slot within the first 15 minutes of my first gambling session of the trip. Unfortunately, not all of that win survived the next four days!

rockyjoe - that is awesome!! I remember being so nervous during the late innings of game 7 in 91 that I chugged a few shots of whiskey to calm the nerves. No big deal now but I didn't drink much back then.


My biggest win was a JOB royal at NY NY in Feb and two full houses in the same night playing LIR at the Paris about 4 years ago.
