    Default Anyone ever win anything cool

    I joined an online giveaway at an online watch store I’ve used. It’s one of those raffle type things, if you win you get a couple nice watches. I don’t usual do those things as I know it’s a way for companies to get your info but I had already bought some parts from them anyway. I’m not a gambling dude I buy lottery tickets once in a while very rarely go to a casino, might put down an occasional bet on boxing etc. I think the most I ever won was 1,000 bucks on a slot machine. I just don’t win these types of things. My wife won an iPad at work so I know people do win. Any of you guys win anything? Can’t you beat my 1,000 dollar casino win? Seriously I hope you did.

    I cannot beat that. I won tickets to young the giant from a radio station once, I didn't go. Won 130+ Canadian quids at the horse racing by betting a quid on three guys finishing in order, probably should have bet more but I know bugger all about horse racing. Most I won betting was the one time I actually knew something and had mourinhos Porto down for winning the uefa cup back whenever that was, still only around 200 British pounds though, I never gamble big so I never win big but wotever.

    Well if u never gamble yeah that’s good. When I won that thousand dollars I did the smart thing and walked out. Unfortunately the 1,000 kept crossing my mind. I was only on the slot machine for five pulls and bam that grand came easy. It stayed in my head for a couple weeks and I went back thinking I could do it again and gave most of it back. Most gamblers won’t mention that part of the story but that’s what I did

    I bet Rafa would win Wimbledon £50 and got £125 back but lost every subsequent bet thereafter so have given up going to the bookies. I won a raffle once which was a huge limited edition whisky bottle which my dad took as I do not drink. I do the lottery but not won anything big.
    Do not let success go to your head and do not let failure get to your heart.

    Beginners luck is just about how everyone gets hooked gambling, whether it be skillless slot machines, horses or sports. I'm not a pro gambler, far from it, my maths aren't sharp enough, but keep records of my bets and "know" exactly what i'm doing. I can spot someone who knows what they're doing and a clueless chancer miles away.

    However, first time betting horses on my own, I turned 5 bucks into about 500 without a single idea what race reading/handicapping/form was, few months later I was walking in the betting shop with my wages then exiting 5 minutes later penniless, lending money, then betting all that away too. Glory days.

    My grandfather was a lifelong horse race bettor. Not a very good one, but persistent as hell. He truly enjoyed it, bless his soul. I lived with my grandparents during my senior year of high school, and I'd try to give my grandfather advice on picking horses. I would study the horses and their records... find out who the jockeys were going to be... look at weather forecasts. Finally, I would make recommendations to my grandfather, who promptly then took some random numbers out of thin air (or his latest "foolproof system" of picking horses), and made the bet. Most of the time neither of us was right. Once in a while he'd win, which of course would fuel his habit for another 5-10 years, and so on and so forth.

    My favorite stories were when he'd be at the betting line at the track, ready to pick "X" or "Y" horse... and then someone would say Pssst... hey buddy... "Golden Shadow" in the 5th. And my grandfather would invariably change his pick and his original pick would win.... and we'd all hear about it for weeks. Or else he'd pick two horses on the "Dupleta" (two consecutive races), and their numbers would come out reversed. (For instance he'd pick a 5-8 dupleta, and the winning combo would be 8-5). He was always missing by "THIS" much..... LOL.

    Wonderful memories.

    My old man is a tin ass, he only bets big rarely and only does it on gut instinct and then pays for holidays overseas etc. He nailed 21 blacks in a row at a casino in China once to pay for the whole trip for mum and him. Same in England in the 80's he paid for the holiday for the three of us on a horse race. Me largest thing I won a local raffle with a trailer load of stuff that eventually broke or wore out and promises from local busnisess's but many didnt step up when asked , the cunts. :-)
