Vegas did me DIRTY

I'm in my hotel room right now in Harrah's trying to use the internet to get my moneys worth in resort fees because I lost in everything I did. Craps robbed me blind, but can anyone say that they EVER went 0-10 on NFL bets? Shouldn't I get something for that? Tell me if you had a worse sports bet experience.

We've all had truly bad streaks, and of course bad days. And while I have had what I consider legendary losing streaks, I probably haven't gone 0-10 in one day. In theory it is just as hard to go 0-10 as it is 10-0.

On the bright side; tomorrow can't be any worse.

Ouch, I feel for you man. I can't say I've gone 0-10 in a single day either but had a similar trip a few weeks ago where I got smacked around for 3 straight days, Sports, Craps, BJ, didn't matter what I did. That's just how things roll sometimes...

Tomorrow is another day, hope things turn around, we're rooting for you!

You're not very good at this gambling lark are you?

Hahaha, seriously though, I feel your pain.

Makes me kind of believe (after reading the OP's post) that the person already bet & lost their whole, budgeted, bankroll for the entire trip's stay. Sitting in the room, trying to make the most of it on the internet? I most certainly hope that is not the case; if it is, then OUCH!

If I experience a losing streak, I will either head out to another casino or just call it a day & hope a new gaming day will fare better with luck.

You should be KENO - on the 20 hit bet you win if you match 0 numbers.

From wikipeidia - "it is not uncommon to see casinos paying $500 or even $1,000 for a “catch” of 0 out of 20 on a 20 spot ticket with a $5.00 wager."

Or- place a 2nd bet on the opposite 10 teams-

But yeah, 0-10

kinda like being a Raiders fan (which I've been for 35+ years)

It's rough right now.

I went 0-6 my last trip.... Combination of totals and putting faith in a few dogs getting big points. It was a $1,000 bankroll, and I was thinking worst case I'd win half and break even. I feel your pain. Let me guess....Eagles one of your locks?

Punk: At least if you were at the Raider's game yesterday it was a comfortable 65 degrees. Although there wasn't much suspense. That was a pretty easy game for fans to pass by, it was a pretty bad line.

And it could be a lot worse----you could be a Cal fan.

Feel your pain. About 15 years ago I went on an 0-25 streak at the blackjack table. It was at that point that I decided to improve my poker game and haven't been back to a blackjack table. Did place 7 sports bets a few years ago and went 1-6. Fortunately that 1 win was for the Packers to win the Superbowl on a future at 10-1
