We weren't gonna turn that down!
We arrived, checked in, and went to eat dinner. After eating we went down to the casino.Neither Jared or I are big gamblers. We are content to spend 20 or 30 bucks knowing it is purely entertainment, so we are happy if we break even. We also aren't the most educated gamblers either. We know the basics - blackjack rules and how to pull the slot machine lever.
Since it was a Monday night, the place was essentially deserted. No one was at the craps table so we walked up and asked if they would teach us how to play. They did and we had fun. An hour later we walked away with an extra $60 and some new gaming knowledge.
We tried out some other machines and lost a combined twenty bucks. Then I tried out a penny slot.
And lo and behold, I actually won a little bit more!
Not a huge amount of money, but a hundred bucks is big winnings for me. It's been years since I've won more than $10, which shouldn't be a shock since we gamble maybe once a year.
We got to stay up late, sleep in without being woken by needy little people, and eat a delicious breakfast I didn't have to cook. Plus we won money!
A very successful night away.
