Can be gambling, lottery, shooting dice, poker, roulette, whatever . . . .

Just posting because I won $500 on a scratch off $3 "Lady Jumbo Bucks" ticket. The Mapco I went to was out of the $2 Jumbo Bucks I usually play. It must have been some sort of karma/fate/divine intervention because the BP I stopped at first had no Guiness beer, and the idiots at the counter were stuck with some idiot trying to purchase $100 of gas on a bogus/nonworking credit card.

I won an iPod touch a couple years back in a drawing. Not a big fan of gambling.

$20 on a $1 scratch off. Whoopie doo. Probably paid for the others I bought previously and lost. I see how those things can get addictive.

January, 1961; sub duty (in that boat up there ^^); Operation Springboard. Moored in San Juan, PR. Young sailor in dress whites playing blackjack at the Caribe Hilton casino. Had $640 (!!!) in chips in front of me. Lost 4 hands in a row. The croupier looked at me intently, said "Good night, sailor" and placed the remaining chips in my whitehat. I walked out with over $550 - almost 3 month's pay. Never gambled again. I'm still ahead of the game..............

Those were the days. My last night in the states before this young Marine got shipped off to southeast Asia I called my parents in TX from CA. Back in those days you still talked to operators when you used pay phones. As she was connecting me I mentioned why I was calling and where I was headed. She promptly released all of my money to the return slot and said "stay safe".

1970 at the "Club" at Kuma Station on Hokkaido, Japan. Had been watching the dime slot machine, so when I got off eve shift I got a dollars worth of dimes to try my luck. Hit the jack pot and won $375. a nice addition to the month's pay. Over the subsequent two years I probably dropped more than that on the slots at the "Club!"

Lived in Vegas for a number of years. Only really gambled when I had out of town guests - did OK. Since they didn't have a Sunday only delivery for the paper, I would take 2 dollars in quarters to the 7/11 every Sunday play the first dollar trying to double my money (most times didn't) then use the other dollar to buy the paper. One day, the postman was playing my favorite machine so I waited and after it took his twenty dollars in quarters tried my luck - Hit for $250, took the money and ran. Got home and damn if I didn't forget to get the paper. :crying2:

Also in Vegas, was leaving on TDY with a little time on my hands ended up in the Flamingo Casino Craps table. Guy next to me gave his wife $10K to go away for an hour. When it came my turn with the dice, I told him to bet the craps check because I always throw bad when cold. I bet $1 each craps, didn't see his bet. My first roll, snake eyes. Pit boss pushes me $30. I bet it again. Next throw double 6. Pit boss pushes me another $30. Few more throws and I was done. As I turn to walk away, the guy next to me flips me a black chip and says thanks for the tip. Evidently he bet the horn twice at $1k each - he made $54K! The black chip he gave me was $1000. Again I took the money and ran.

Up $4400 is the most I left with 1/1/1990 dollar slots were popping in Reno, Nevada.

A mere fraction of what has been donated to the various indigenous groups in my name over the years.
