What is the maximum you have ever won in a cruise casino and also the maximum you ever lost?

 

 

Not info that I'm about to put on a public forum.    😉

I used to be a frequent fixture at craps tables across the border in Nevada, but lost interest years ago.   I've never really gambled much in cruise ship casinos.  I can't remember the $$ but it wouldn't be much either way.   I remember my SIL winning $600 playing cards once.

Amazing what some people are willing to reveal to total strangers.

I only played slots .My late brother in  law only played craps and I seem to recall him always winning when we went to casinos in the 80’s.

My Mom claimed she always won also, so when I took my parents to a casino, I watched how she played from a distance.  She would load up the machine with 20's, cash out a ticket for say $500, show it to my Dad, and then maybe do the same for $300 or $250 later on.

 

She would then buy her new washer/dryer machines, furniture or carpeting, and my Dad couldn't gripe about it since it was bought with lucky Mom's "winnings".

I liked the "wheel of fortune" slot machine.

Bingo.. Stood behind my MIL, watched her put a $100 bill in a poker machine, after ten minutes she cashed out for $70 something. About a hour later were sitting in the Buffett having lunch and she pulled out her $70 voucher and told us how much she won..  She is pushing 90 years old so her short term memory may be in play.

In 2017 on Grandeur of the  Seas I saw an interestesting machine.It was my intent to bet thirty cents on a penny machine but I accidentally hit the $3 button.

 

I have played the wheel of fortune $5 machine on cruise ships but never won.

At a casino in NY there is a penny wheel of fortune game that I have done well on.

Sounds like Pechanga in Temecula.  It may have changed in the last 18 years, It may have been in a tent like structure back then. Now it is on par with Las Vegas resorts.

I remember the tent at Temecula.  And where the Oceans card room was before it was built up.

You were there before they could afford asphalt for the parking lot.  Now they are the largest private employer with over 5000 workers. At least 5000 pre covid 19.
