I'm relatively unlucky at lotteries or at casinos. My biggest win in any lottery was about $250, and my largest net at a casino was $100 after putting five bucks in the nickel slots machine.

How about everyone else?

I am about $300 ahead from the one time I played baccarat and over the last few years I think I'm $400 ahead in blackjack. I rarely leave the table down, and usually it's because there are complete donkeys at the table so I just color up and switch tables.

I won $84 playing bingo with my grandparents when I was 8 or so.
I won $27 with my third roll of a slot machine last summer on a cruise ship.
In 2008 I went to the arcade at Foxwoods and won somethng like 3000 tickets at one of those coin pusher machine (you aim and roll the coin down a ramp and there are walls moving forward and back to push the coins). I got a dartboard, some Slinkies, and a hell of a lot of bubble gum.

On my birthday a few years ago (Feb. 7), I put $5 on 27 for one spin and one spin alone and hit it. That was awesome.

I've also had surprising luck with slots, particularly those goofy ones where you're no longer spinning but now you're guiding penguins across the street (that spin made me about $200).

I've never been to a casino yet. But when I do go, I'll probably just be a sissy and play the slots the whole time there.

Most I've ever won from the lottery was $60 off of a scratch-off ticket.

I'm home from Las Vegas ahead $150 from my penny slots gambling funds, which is the first time that's ever happened. At our local casino, if I break even, I'm happy. Sadly, that probably won't happen much anymore since table games start there next month.

Once I had a hot streak where I ran $20 up to over $2000 at a roulette table. I will never be that lucky again.

Best one hit was leprachaun poker at an indian casino outside miami where I ended up winning $750 for a $1.25. Now, if we ever went into heartbreaking casino losses, it'd be a much longer list.

I usually end the day being down when playing poker at the casinos, but one night I left being about 100 bucks up. I play limit though, so that is why I never win or lose too much money.

My first time playing craps was great because I had a friend helping me and we found some hot players. I ended the night up 200 dollars.

I won $250 playing video poker on a nickel machine (5 bets so a quarter each hand, I hit 4 aces with a 2 as my 5th card which apparently is worth more for some reason). Even though I know the odds suck I love playing the penny slots with the mini games. I've also won $100 playing roulette (I usually put $5 on red or black and then another $5 on odd or even, you usually end up hitting at least one of those bets so you can play for awhile without losing much). I also won $20 playing pai gow but was up $200 there and got suckered into trying to "beat the dealer who kept beating me".

I've gone to Mohegan Sun casino in Connecticut about 5 or 6 times a year for the past 3 years. 90% of the time has been spent playing Texas hold'em. The most I've won there at one time was a $1200 profit after a 10 hour session. I also won $800 another time and then $750 for finishing second in a small tournament ($50 buy-in, I think 70-80 people total). It can be rather streaky, though. The last 2-3 times I was there, I lost my maximum amount (I won't allow myself to lose more than $300 each time). So overall, I've made off more times up than down, but with not much total profit to show for it. Better than nothing or less than nothing, though.

I recently shipped a $5 poker tourney with over 4000 entrants for $3400+. My net poker profit for the year is about $5K, but that's the extent of "gambling" that I do, I don't play table games.

Welcome home, men of the 2nd Bn, 127th Infantry, 32d "Red Arrow" Brigade, WI Army National Guard! Job well done in Iraq!

In early January 2001, I finally hit Vegas. Stopped at the New York, New York casino one night, and tried my hand at blackjack...with my Green Bay DJ pal who happened to be in town at the same time.

(That's me on the right, doing some horrible type of Popeye impersonation.)

$10 a hand, went up to $100 of house money; they changed dealers, I kept playing...ended up losing $10.

Great night!

I was waiting to get off the train the other night when I noticed a penny on the floor of the train right in front of me. The train was crowded and it was facing tails side up so I decided not to make the effort to bend down and pick it up.
