WE MADE IT BACK!
We made it back and in good shape with a little resting up. Everything went as planned...Almost...I lost on the quarter machine, about 60 bucks in all, then I played the dollar machine and won a fist full of dollars. I kept playing it for about two hours and it paid off several times. The biggest one was 750 dollars then I hit several 80's, 120's so I quit with a cash out ticket for 900 bucks. I couldn't reach a thousand dollars.
Every time I got closer the next few times I would lose, so I made up my mind I would not get below 900 showing on the screen so I quit at that point. A man two machines from me kept putting in 20 dollar bills and when I moved my scooter he said he was down 300 dollars! I don't know if he ever got some of the money back!
My wife plays the penny machines with all those bars and emblems on the screen in about 9 lines. That would drive me batty trying to figure out what I won! She got in plenty playing time for comps to be awarded for her next trip to pay for food and hotel rooms on the next stay there! :Clap-Hands:
I can't say when our next trip will be but probably back to New Orleans before the end of the year visiting her family members and we stay and play at Harrah's casino downtown! I'm pretty luck there most of the times and I play the quarter machines longer too! It's good to get away and out of town when you can. Makes coping with being a stroke survivor a bit better for me. I have to be doing something all the time or I get bored easily!
