Written by Mahal Ramapois

In casino gambling, sometimes evenrepparttar most knowledgable players turn to blind luck to make it through their day. Of course, luck can never be relied on; either things will gorepparttar 140151 right way for you or they won't. The great thing about casino gambling is that luck has to be with you for only a moment to make a difference in what could've easily been a bad day.

Roulette is, in my opinion,repparttar 140152 best game to play where you can turn blind luck into a great casino story to tell your friends.

Recently, my family dragged me down torepparttar 140153 casinos of Atlantic City. I'm not going to lie to you - I wasn't feeling very lucky and would've much preferred to stay home. Since I was 'forced' to go, my goal was to go into hiding, play slow and steady, kill time and grind it out until my folks were ready to come back home. I thought I had everything covered.

Well, I spent a little time atrepparttar 140154 $10 craps tables, but mostly I played $20 pai gow and then some $15 blackjack. I couldn't forrepparttar 140155 life of me get anything going and instead of treading water, I was bleeding moneyrepparttar 140156 whole afternoon. After about 4 hours I was down $435, which could've been worse but it was obviously far fromrepparttar 140157 result I wanted.

I was close to broke and ready to go home as I met back up with my family. Suddenly I had a crazy idea. "I have to do one more thing before we go. I've gotta go torepparttar 140158 roulette table." My family gave me an indifferent shrug and followed, as they're mostly slot players and all table games are Greek to them.

The plan was to throw down a few more bucks and try to get back allrepparttar 140159 money I lost in one shot. I went overrepparttar 140160 math in my head as I walked over torepparttar 140161 roulette table. I was down $435, so I knew a $40 bet at 11-1 could get me back to even. Hopefully.

I found a roulette table and gave $40 torepparttar 140162 dealer, to which she handed me 8 red nickels. I reached and put allrepparttar 140163 chips on '28 Street'. (It's a three number bet - either 28, 29 or 30 would win for me.) The dealer spun, I stood nearrepparttar 140164 roulette wheel, and prayed!

The ball slowed down and bounced aroundrepparttar 140165 wheel for several tense seconds as I rooted for one of my three numbers. It popped into number 2 and stayed there for a moment - and then dropped intorepparttar 140166 number two slots over.

Number 28, black, even.
