    Truth be told, this happened last year. I walked in with $250 and by the grace of everything that is right in the world I walk out after roughly 6 hours with $5,000. It was exciting. I got up to roughly $9,400 at my highest but then started to lose and called it quits at a cool $5,000.

    I bought my boyfriend a $1,500 computer he had wanted, put $1,000 into savings for another day, and paid a bunch of debt with the remaining $2,500. It was the greatest thing ever.

    Now if only that could happen ever time!

    Thats a great feeling.. The only form of entertainment where you at least have the chance of coming home with more money then you actually left with... My buddies mom goes to Vegas and I swear she wins a few thousand on her first $20 nearly everytime.. Meanwhile I feed slots hundreds and, nothing lol..

    Congratulations, I can just imagine what you must have felt when you walked out of the casino. What games did you play was it on the tables or on the slots?

    That is super amazing. Of course those things always happen to other people and not me! Congratulations to you though, that is awesome. This is just something you will always remember. It is just one of the things that you can be glad happened to you!

    Congrats. I have never heard anyone winning as much as 5K in a day.

    I have never been so lucky on gambling table. The highest amount I have made in a casino is $200. It is good that you were able to pay debts. That's everyone's dream.

    Haha thanks. Ya, it was great! Also, super helpful seeing as I needed the money and probably should not have been in the casino in the first place. Luckily, I know when to stop. I also have a policy that once I double my cash, I cash out my original amount pocketing it and then play with the remaining half.

    Usually I make more daring moves once i've gotten to that point. 9/10 times I lose it all. However, 1/10 times I can win pretty big with that method. It's kinda neat.

    Lucky you! How does one know when and where to stop? Did you regret that you didn't call it a day at $9400?
    I think if I ever gambled in a casino, which I never have, I'd set myself a price before I start gambling. And once I get close to that number, I would stop, no matter how big the temptation would be to continue. I know myself that well. And I also know that rush when one is on a winning streak. It's exhilarating!

    Congrats! That's an awesome day out. What were you playing? I know you mentioned that Blackjack is your favorite, but just wondering if it was strictly Blackjack that day?

    Wow, one can only be envious of a day like that!
    As others have asked, I am super curious to know what games you played that particular day.
    Also, good on you for spending the money wisely, paying off debt and saving money is an investment in your future.

    That is an excellent win @iGamble ! I'm glad you and your boyfriend got to experience that off of just $250 as your starting amount. No wonder you have the screen name of the highest priced Apple betting nomenclature possible :D With the way you bet and win against the odds, you could afford even to play in Apple's casinos if they ever started any. ;) I would, however, avoid their slot machines...just to be safe. ;)

    Your time is coming for a big win soon, Kgord! :)

    Usually the squeaky wheel gets the grease, and now that you've put it out there, it'll be interesting to see how it goes from here for you. :cool:

    I feel truly happy for you. However, I wish you had stopped at $9k. Congratulations from the bottom of my heart!

    I had an immense win of like £300 from £25 and I then proceeded to lose all of it. I'm really greedy when it comes to being able to pull out and be happy with what I've got. But amazingly it also felt like a weight off of my shoulders when I lost..

    It was both a win and a learning experience. :) Next time (and there will be a next time), you'll be able to decide whether or not to keep playing or to see the pattern and know when it's a good time to withdraw and be happy with what you won. This time, you were teaching yourself through the win and the loss, next time it will be more of a lasting win and less of a practice lesson. ;)

    I suppose so: I really do want to get back in to betting again and being more sensible betting wise. The problem is is that I tend to brick it in stressful situations and then do stupid things.

    I know right!?! If only there was an option to cash out at the highest you reached! Unfortunately, that is not a thing. For good reason too, casinos would not exist if it was a losing bet for them!

    Damn! Does this mean you had to lose some money almost on purpose to cash out?
