Didn't Smoke In Vegas and Won $600.00! Yeah!!!!!!!

I had a great time in Vegas! First, I did not smoke! I thought about it a couple of times and once when I was sitting next to someone on a slot machine who was smoking I thought about asking for one. Oddly enough, as quick as those thoughts came into my head, they went out just as quickly! I went with a friend who wanted to go to Circus Circus because she brought her daughter and I was like, "I'm gonna gamble in Circus Circus? Ok........" She took her daughter to where the kids play for prizes and I sat down at one machine and started playing nickles. I won over a hundred dollars and decided to cash it out since I had lost about that much the night before. I decided to play the same type of machine right next to it and was playing it for pennies. I could feel the machine was gonna hit and when it did, I had no idea that I won $550.00 worth of pennies! Too bad I wasn't playing nickels! That would have been a few grand! My friend was shocked that I won that much money playing pennies. I was definetly happy to be walking out of Vegas with money instead of scraping together money to drive home and get snacks! I was only gone for a day and a half but I had a great time. It was definetly a good way to celebrate my birthday even though today is my actual birthday. I Hope everyone is doing well and staying smoke free.

Glad to have you back among us and I'm thrilled you didn't give in and smoke, gives me even more hope I can do the same when I go to Vegas coming up.

Wow, that's great! You didn't weaken around the smoking and you won a lot of money!

I'm so proud of you - Happy Birthday!

Yay, you, Mz Diva! Sounds like the perfect birthday - staying smoke-free in one of the toughest situations (for me, anyway) and walking away with some of the casino's money. I hope you did a happy dance on the way out!
