Just back from the NCL Jewel....great week of video poker! I hit Aces Kicker on $1 for $2k, a 3 X $.25 Royal Flush for $3K, a 10 X $.25 Aces for another $2K. I also hit 3 other $.25 royal flushes for $1k each! They have 8 All Star machines, and we had about 20-25 people wanting to play, so had to get there early and camp out or lose it.

One week ago tonight on the Sunshine I hit on Gold Stacks penny slot machine for $9,187.06. It was a big thrill. I was spending 68 cents per spin. I guess it just shows that when they are ready to pop, the person sitting there reaps the benefits.

In 2009 on the Golden Princess I found 2 dealers blackjack dealers that when sitting at 3rd base would expose the corner of their hole card. Blackjack is an easy game when you know what the dealer has. You still need to have some luck as you can't hit when you know you are going to lose and can't make it obvious or they would have caught on. Throughout the 2 week cruise I won almost $8k and the only reason it wasn't more was the table limit was $300. I had everyone always looking at me when it was time for insurance. I would have to play stupid sometimes and not take insurance even when I knew I would lose so they didn't catch on.

I only play craps. Most won on a single cruise was a little over $11k on one sailing. Not a high roller but just play my system and walk when its cold and bet high when its hot.

Won over $40,000 on Azamara years ago....sometimes close to that on NCL......Video Poker - various games........but have also come home losing close to that amount! It all averages out with the deals that we get with CAS......as we would gamble anyway! Just one of my "vices!"

Just got off Carnival Dream yesterday. Early on hit $1890 playing a wonder 4 machine. Then last night of the cruise, hit a Grand jackpot for $10,000! Was on a Chinese themed machine, Dancing Drums.

There were a lot of big pays. I know of a $20,000 & a$17,000. Plus other smaller wins announced.

Fun trip!

Won $1000. and alot of smaller wins. I too spend alot of time in the casinos. I don't drink so I spend my well earn income I saved up to go on the cruise. I only spend what I can afford to lose. It is entertainment for us. Plus we have met several other couples we later kept in contact with.
I also won the slot tournament for a free cruise in Dec.on the Harmony. There I could win $50,000.00 in prizes. Problem with free is not really free. Taxes, insurance, tips, hotel, flights are not included. And it is only a 5 day cruise. I wasn't going to go but changed my mind. Oh, it is only an inside room as well. If we want a balcony add on another $1000.

And yes I too have had nights I didn't win a red cent.
