Late 2000. Riverbelle
and man, did I learn about things (And at times pissed off some of the casinos)..
The big one..I was playing VP (Of course!) and down to about $14.00 and then the RF came up. Suddely I was at $1,03.75!! I whooped and continued. I got up the next moring and then proceed to blow it all!!
But then (After I sent in the paperwork) I then hit 3 times in the following 3 months about $3,000 every month.
I wasn't smart, except the time I gave Mom $3,000 and she was so embareseed, I had to sneak it into her checking and she said nothing, but she knew who did it.
Fell on hard times a couple years later (or 4) and banned myself from them all.
Now what with the laws in effect, it doesn't matter anymore. I only play what I can afford and not often..(I'm feeling kind of smug tonight, paid rent and land and will have a nice bit to tide me over till UI kicks in again)
Plus, a trick I learned I'll post later..Yes, I am sneaky with games and playing.
