    What is the highest amount you have earned in gambling. (It can be on real casino, online casino or a home based gambling games).
    I have earned $200 at the casino and $300 by playing cards with friends in my home.

    The highest amount that I earned from an online casino was $180. I know that it is pretty less compared with the experienced casino experts. I remember that once I made $120 at my home with my friends just like you. Anybody here who won more than $1000? (I am just curious)

    The highest I've earned in one night was about 800$ on an online slots, also I've played lots of poker at home along with my friends, the biggest stack I've been able to win against them was around 150$.

    I technically won $1800? But after taxes and sharing it with my two friends, it came out to something like $400. We agreed we would split anything if we won big, anything under 20 was fair game. I pulled the reel but hey, does it really matter when it's all luck ;)?

    Well, it's a considerate amount of money, so I believe you were really generous do have shared it with your friends. I am guessing they would do the same for you right? :p

    At a casino down in Vegas, the most I have ever made in the casino was around 200$ I'd say. Really not bad especially considering that I only spent an hour to get that much on the slots. As you know it I quickly ran away with the cash before spending any more.

    $200 is not bad considering the time you were playing. Also, how much money have you entered with? As far as I see it any profit is good because the entertainment we have has a lot of value too.

    I have won two ´big´ things.

    The first was in like 1998 ( the first year John Elway won the SB). Basically a local car dealership had a contest that if you test drove a car, you got a throw... the throw was 50 yards, through a tire to win tickets to the SB. I swooshed the throw and won 2 tickets to San Diego SB... total value of the package was like $10k.

    Then last summer I entered a freebie daily football game on FantasyDraft.com it was for the second pre-season which is really tricky since ´stars´ do not really play much. I got lucky and nailed a WR from New Orleans who scored 2 TDs and had 200 yards receiving along with a few fairly good picks. I won $500 for coming in 12th place out of like 10,000 people who entered.

    I do not win big in casinos because I only really play blackjack, which is kinda a slow and steady game.. you just do not have big days like nailing a slot machine.

    I turned $100 to nearly $4000 betting sports. Of course I ended up giving it all back. It was such a bummer knowing how hard it was getting that high.

    Great, how much money did you have in your pocket when you entered the slot machine? And how much was destined for play? Also, how much money have you played until you got those 200$, if you spent like 500$ and won 700$, so a 200$ profit, it was not worth it if you asked me.

    The highest amount I won was probably on pokerstars. I played the Sunday million about a year ago and won about 150k in an 18 hour run.

    That is usually the deal, it is hard to walk away with a win, and certainly more people walk away because they have nothing left to bet. It only happened once, with a poker machine, but I won a decent amount very early in the night, so what I did is just tucked away half of it. It is fun playing when you know no matter what, you are going home ahead.

    The most I ever made was around $600 in one night. I was playing mostly blackjack and poker at a smaller casino. It was just one of those lucky nights that everything going for me. A typical good win for me though is $50. :D

    I really wish I had tucked at least some of it in my pocket. I just got too confident and then I lost a $500 dollar bet. Then I just said screw it and I put the rest of it on a single game and I lost. It sucked thinking about the streak I had to put together to get to that point and then giving it all away in one game.

    Yeah, confidence and excitement mix together and instead of walking away with our winnings we put them on the table again and more often than not we end up losing them... :)

    I say we need to be more optimistic, I mean, if you have won $150 it's not that bad right? Imagine you are able to win that once per week, it would make a difference. ;)

    Turned 10$ in 80$, then 80$ in 160$ playing several games (slot machine, poker, blackjack etc.). Not a big fan of betting much money since I do it more for the thrill and fun than trying to earn a living wage.

    My first time playing black jack at the casino I had really no idea what I was doing at all. I knew the very basics of when to hit and hold but didn't know anything about doubling down or any of that. About 20 minutes later my dad came up to me and said "now would be a good time to leave", so I packed up my chips and walked away having no idea I just won $275 dollars.
