Talking an epic win!

Ok, so I am not really a gambler. Well one morning on the ship I had about an hour to spare and put $5 in a penny slot machine (I know, big spender). In 45 minutes, I won $500! My mama raised no fool so I cashed it out and met my friend at our cooking demo. I was shaking from excitement! This was a big deal for me! Met up with some friends I had made that evening and bought drinks.....made an amazing cruise even better!

However...still don't see myself going to a casino anytime soon....lol

Best thing I ever did was put my name in for a cash drawing (using slips from Blackjack table) and won $750. I put my friends name in there too and she won $250. We played a little more but went home with 80% of our winnings after having the crab leg buffet..

Congratulations on the win!!!!!

It's always nice to come home with some extra money.

On my last cruise one night I was playing Blackjack. My brother, nephew, niece's fiancÚ and a friend were also at the table so we basically had our own table. I was the lucky one of the group and walked away with a sizable sum. However no one else, except my nephew made any money and the others lost their stake. No matter what: It was fun. Especially for me.

Take care,
