    ***My new lucky numbers; 12 and 3- Gamblepalooza trip report AC 4/13-16 2019***

    Hello everyone. Last week, I returned to Atlantic City for the first time since 2014. Gamblepalooza is a gathering of podcasters and their fans/friends, created by Cousin Vitoís podcast. Other podcasters who attended were You Can Bet On That, The Bettor Life, Seven Out Podcast, Vegas Confessions, and Travel Fanboy. I highly recommend all of these podcasts!

    I arrived late Saturday afternoon and stayed at Ocean casino Saturday night.





    My room was in the 26th floor.







    All rooms have an ocean view, but the fog made it hard to see.



    I didnít win much at Ocean but was able to hold my own on slots. Best wins were back to back hits on a dollar Double Gold.





    Played one craps session at a $15 table. Hung in for a while but lost 125. After watching the end of the Braves game, I went to bed early. Things would get much better on Sunday!!

    Sunday morning I checked out at Ocean and walked to Caesars. I was happy to find that my room was ready.









    After dropping off my bags, I walked to Resorts for the high limit group slot pull. It was $100 per share and we played a $100 Wheel of Fortune machine. It looked like we would lose all our money because we only got a couple small wins. Then Cousin Vito asked me to hit the button, and I got lucky and got the spin feature. This was the result.



    We cashed out with a $30 profit per share.

    After the slot pull, Resorts gave Gamblepalooza members a private craps and blackjack table. They made it $25 minimum which is higher than I normally play, but I bought in for 300 at the craps table. I really enjoyed playing with the group! The dice were nice to us this time and after playing for a little over an hour, I cashed out 500 ahead!

    My plan was to go back to Caesars, but I decided to stop and play a dollar 12x pay machine. Boy am I glad I did!!



    My biggest win ever! $7,200!! I played the 18 remaining credits and got a little more.



    Finally I walked back to Caesars and rested for a while before heading to Hard Rock. The group was meeting for Asian gaming, but I decided to just play a few slots and leave. I played at Caesars and got a small win on Colossal Wizards.



    After a very exciting day, I watched the Braves on ESPN and then called it a night.

    ***My new lucky numbers; 12 and 3- Gamblepalooza trip report AC 4/13-16 2019***

    Monday morning I played more slots at Caesars.





    Time for some craps. I played for a while at a $10 table and cashed out 125 ahead. Then I saw Julian from the Vegas Confessions podcast. He said Mark and Dr Mike from You Can Bet On That were coming to play craps, so I went back to the table. There was Julian, Mark and Dr Mike, and later Cousin Vito joined us. This time, the table turned ice cold and I lost 200 quickly. However, I decided to hang around a little longer. The table stayed cold and I was about to leave. Then Dr Mike had a good roll and the dice warmed up. A little later, I got the dice and they made up for all those bad rolls! I hadnít been playing it, but I put a dollar each on the small tall all bets. I needed 10 to make the tall and finally rolled it. Then I was down to 6 and 3 to make the small and all. I rolled a 6
    and then made the point which was 5. Then Dr Mike made a $10 bet for me on the 3. The next roll? You guessed it, 3!! I got $150 thanks to Dr Mike, and I also got $35 for the small and $176 for the all. That 3 came at just the right time!! After once being down over 300, I cashed out 200 ahead. That was fun!!

    Later that afternoon, I walked to Ballys and tried my luck there. Got a couple nice hits on red white and blue.





    That evening I played at Caesars but the slots decided I had won enough. I had one more craps session. Started hot but the dice cooled off. The box man then announced that the table minimum would go up from 10 to 25 after the next shooter. Fortunately that shooter had a good roll and I cashed out $15 ahead.

    Tuesday morning, I headed to Philadelphia on Greyhound and made it in plenty of time to catch my flight back home.

    I had a fantastic trip, not just because of the wins. The people who attended Gamblepalooza were great! I didnít get to meet all of the podcasters, but hopefully I will on a future trip. Thanks for reading! Happy Easter!!
