Yesterday my neighbor couple, Gary and Gail, invited me to come with them to Chinook Winds Casino on the Oregon coast. They are "frequent flyers" so my room rate was $35! The room had two queen beds and was right on the ocean.
We took a scenic trip over stopping to have lunch about 20 minutes south of where we were staying. And we decided to have a drink at lunch. Oh my gosh! When we later checked in, we all took a nap! They got up and headed over to the casino (shuttle bus service at your beck and call) about 4:30 ... I met them about 5:30.
We all played penny slot machines and my $40 was gone in an hour. Gary and Gail are luckier than lucky! Two friends of theirs also joined us and they, too, were lucky. Gary won over $1,000 and Ben over $700. I should have just opened my wallet and handed them my twenty dollar bills! It was incredible. Every time he sat down at a new machine, by the third pull (well, button push) he would win $100! The most I ever won was $5. I was thinking I would have beginner's luck.
I guess bad luck is better than no luck at all! And I don't have to worry about becoming a gambling addict ....
