Let it be said, i have no illusions about growing my $8700+ bankroll from this upcoming saturday night drawing. id estimate about 10,000 tickets (or there will be by saturday night, in the big drum which is a combination of all previous weeks). the smaller drum, which is about 1000-2000 tickets only, is the one i have 222 tickets in and im hoping for 1-2 small wins of $50-100 in free slot play.
Once the smaller drawings take place, all of the tickets are put into the big drum as it gets closer to 7pm for the final 3 drawings of $500, $1000, and $10,000 and u can only win one of those prizes.
As much as i dread seeing a dentist and fearing what bad news he might have to tell me for letting it go so long, (and the corresponding $500 or so drop to have it done correctly and sedated) in a way ill feel better a few days after its over, certainly not immediately. Because the inside of my mouth does feel kind of odd and i fear something might be in there. I'm sure i made a big mistake coming here instead of to my moms.
Here is what bugs me about this drawing. And im surprised Rob dont win the MGM drawing alot more than he does. Can anyone tell me WHY so many tickets are bent or creased before putting them in the drum? seems some people bend or crimple all of their tickets.
It makes me uncomfortable--because it makes it appear like an employee is planning to pick out the name of someone they preplanned it with ahead of time for a big tip. and they can feel around the drum for a ticket with the bend in the right place--and select that particular ticket. doesnt this happen all the time? if i am just being paranoid on this, i dont understand why some people are bending so many of their tickets. and its not just one person doing this, ive noticed about 3 or more. I'd really like to know if anyone can come up with an innocent reason.
the $141 i now have on Bovada is allowing me to play poker while im here. Reno is about 50 miles away, but at least i can still play. saturdays room is taken care of now, so i can relax til the sunday amtrak if i wanted to not play anymore. and this casino is still very empty during the night, makes it easy to play alone how i want. if i cant win here, i cant win anywhere--barring a 5x-10x points promotion etc.
