    THR is kind of my local (4 hours) Closest one to us. Quit going, rooms are pricey, never win. Did take my last hundred and hit 600.00 on MegaBucks, was going to stay 2 nights, check out right away and only stayed one. Made Biloxi my local- only 8 hours away. Comped everything though last trip lost 3000.00. Went for broke and broke it was! Still had a blast though. I was overdue for a losing trip. Next week Vegas!! Hopefully got the losing out of my system.

    My brother-in-law won 1000.00 on lotto yesterday and him and his girl are going to Hollywood for two nights and splitting the 1000.00 to play with. I say they last two hours.

    Wow, this sucks, but this doesn't surprise me at all. I am sorry you lost so much at one time. I have lost big there too and have written about it a couple of threads in the tales from losers section also. The pattern is exactly as you said you put in $400 then hit for around $200 then put in another $400 and maybe hit for another $100. They will never let you actually go up. It is my local also so I would say if you like to gamble and must go then go once a week or so and take $100 and get your gambling fix and save the rest for Vegas.

    I have only been to that Tampa HR once and haven't been back.
    If we are visiting over in that area and my wife received a promotion for free money she stops in just to spend it and thats all.
    We tend to save for Vegas.
    Even though you may still take a beating the comps do help to elevate the pain a bit.

    I've had a couple similar experiences at Tampa Hard Rock. I will say though, that I think Tampa Hard Rock is just very volatile, because I've also hit a bunch of hand pays there... it seems to either be really hot or really tight for me.

    I had a big hit for 7500 on $1.50 quick hits. You can win ....but it takes a real effort to not give it all back. My New Years resolution...leave a winner...do not spend away your winnings.

    Sorry to hear your trip was not a fun one. I have had similar non fun trips to LV. Couldn't hit a bonus or a lone cherry, simply zilch, nada. Lay low for a while. That is what I did. DW and I went back this past Xmas and that was a much better experience.
