    I remember it as it was yesterday, I was walking down the road to my home, I was a little drunk since I was partying with some of my college friends, I've had only 2$ left to spend the whole week (it was Thursday), I was thinking about how shall I eat exactly when I ran into a casino along the way. I went in without thinking, invested money in the first machine that came to my eyes, after about 15 minutes I walked out of there with 600$, enough to pay rent for the next month. One of my best experiences as a student so far.

    Fantastic, was it penny slots? The best ratio I've still ever had winning on a slot machine was $12 and change on a penny roll because I only had a few cents left on the machine and had been on a losing streak. That's like winning $12,000 on a $1 ticket, lol

    Nice story! I always feel so happy about the people like you. However, something needs to be clarified. Did you have only $2 when you walked into the casino and managed to win $600? That's crazy! So, what was the exact result of your first action? What games did you play? What was the first one? Thanks!

    Man why do those things always happen to someone else? I never have the luck that you can use. I have won like 30 dollars for putting 50 cents in a machine. It is one of the luckiest things that has happened to me.

    I love it when I can think of winnings in terms of that. I am not sure if most people do that, but I certainly do. I always catch myself thinking or saying "well, there is half of rent" or "there's my internet bill" whenever I win a certain amount or make that amount in some way. It is just the way I think, and I would like to think that it has some advantages.

    wow, that's fantastic, You made $600 from $2 when you wanted money desperately. Contrarily, I lost $50 when I wanted $100 to get going for the week. It was festive time and I came across a club, I walked in and tried my luck. I won some money in the first few bets. Then I began losin. When I walked out I did not have a penny.

    It wasn't a penny machine. However I do not advice anyone to go gambling when they're in need of money, in my situation those 2$ weren't much of a difference, I was a little drunk and also that seemed the best way left to spend those 2$, by gambling them.

    Someone was looking out for you that day I see. Cool! I remember being a similar situation one time. I never got that lucky again though! I agree with you, I wouldn't recommend anyone try that when they are down to their last dollar.

    I guess you're probably right, someone was really looking for me that day, you know some people say that we unlock our sixth sense while we drink, maybe I felt something that made me go gambling that day, who knows.
    Well if you need lots of money and are down on the last dollar I don't think it would make such a difference if you gamble it, but if you need 100$ and already have 50$, I would recommend anyone to risk those for the chance to gain 100$.

    While there seems to be a lot of stories about people who are down on their luck and use their last bit of money gambling and end up winning a small fortune, I'm sure there are many more that don't win.

    With that in mind I think you have to be very careful and think of the consequences if that should happen, because winning isn't always guaranteed as I'm sure we are all well aware.

    I think you are right, people like to focus on the stories that work out well and not the ones that don't. If the person looses they will forget the incident and just that they were down on their luck.

    What an amazing story. Wow! These type of story really gives me the hope. I believe in the fact that luck drives your success. I wish I also could win that much. I have invested much more than you but I still failed. Can you share some tips?

    In some forms of gambling I don't think there are necessarily tips that people can share, and it simply is down to good fortune.

    I think a lot of people will have a systematic approach to gambling, and even though they may cut the odds of losing down drastically, they still have to rely on that element we all want on our side, a little bit of luck and good fortune.

    Unfortunately I think that's probably the more common version of the story that you've mentioned there.

    While I've never done anything like that myself, I do know some people that literally have bet every penny they've got and lost. They've then had to either take out loans they can barely afford to pay back just to make ends meet then for the rest of the month or try and negotiate a payment plan with the landlord.

    That's incredible.

    What possessed you to walk into the casino in the first place if times were so tight? Let alone with only $2, what on earth did you think you could turn that into?

    This is a serious example of making your own luck. You've got to meet fate halfway sometimes, and have the balls to just put the money down!

    As I've said, I was a little drunk at that time and I also realized that 2$ will do me no difference if I've lost them as I couldn't live on with those even a day, on the side, if I've even won just 2$ more, I would've got enough money, 4$, to get it through another day, so I liked my chances back then, casino was kind of in the road to home, I just entered without thinking too much.

    Well it certainly paid off for you, and at the end of the day, we can call it fate, luck, whatever we want, the fact remains that it worked out in the end.

    Have you ever had anything like that happen again, or do you think that's all your good luck used up now? Haha!
