    Dang, Gene! You need to get out of this funk soon!! Even a nice break even, play all night visit would help. I haven't won in a while, either. But I haven't played since early January. Hope you get over this "flu" soon!

    Hang in there Gene--hope this funk you're in turns around soon. Sometimes visiting another casino or changing something stupid like a wallet or key chain can help. Last December I changed bags--yes don't laugh-- although I haven't really come home a winner, I haven't been getting slaughtered or butchered like I was for eight months in a row. Sending good luck wishes and vibes your way. I feel a handpay coming soon!

    Yup GG, I've had some nasty days on reels too, but still better than those d&^n pennies. DW does pretty good on 'em, but she too has her 'up's/downs.
    Save all your GL for the M&G.

    GG: Sorry to hear your run of bad luck continued. I guess it just goes to show no matter what type of slot is played unless lady luck is smiling on you the machines will always win. I know what you mean about Las Vegas, just something about the place vs. any local joint.

    Thanks for all the replies everybody. Seeing all the nice wins each week from members like Jason, BigDaddy, Weezie, and others, is starting to convince me to forget every single fact about the RNG and realize that the fact is that some players are just plain luckier than others are.
    There is no reason why I lost over 40 Grand last year with an average bet of only $1 a spin, and still losing this year, other than the fact that I am not lucky.

    Hey, you've got a great family. You've got some money. You've got your health. You got us for a support group. Hang in there GG!

    GG....seems like the only time I win is when I don't give a shit and play super recklessly. When I try to budget or play smart, I just LOSE.

    My experience has been the opposite of Derek's so far. I've been winning nearly half the time by bringing a modest bankroll, betting low, and switching machines when it's not hitting. I'm down about $800 for the year so far, and a full half of that was from one reckless night where I blew $400 chasing my losses on the nickel machines. (Lesson learned. Hopefully. )

    GG, I don't think some people are just luckier than others. With all due respect and no offense intended to others, the math ensures that we all lose at some point, and I dare say we all lose in the long run--you are just more candid about your losses than most other people are. We see the big wins, we don't get a detailed accounting of the losing trips and losing spins.

    Plus, some folks are betting so big that even a modest 50x win yields a handpay. Everyone loves to see the pictures, and we all dream of winning thousands of dollars--but proportionally it's the same as me betting 50 cents and winning $25 (which usually happens to me a couple times a night). I don't read those threads and walk away thinking "they're luckier than I am".... I think "they're willing to risk more money than I am." We're all playing against the same odds, give or take a few PB % points.

    Hang in there. And make sure you follow all the conflicting advice you're getting from the rest of us.
