I Won 87,000,000 Today on Slotomania ….

05 Aug

This my friends is just a stupid, fun, non-sensible post.  It speaks of a couple of hours I wasted in today, 2 hours I will never get back, 2 hours that other than make me smile had no purpose.  It’s also costing me another 2 hours to write about it, so I can share it with you.  If you’re not about wasting any time today, smiling you can past this post right on by.

As many of you know I have 5 nebulized treatments per day, sometimes that could be as high as 7 depending on how rough a day I am having breathing.  I really hate wasting my time nebulizing, so while time-consuming, nebulizing is important but just sitting with the mask on while the nebulizer does its’ thing can boring.  So while I medicate, I generally read and respond to emails, chat with friends if they are online, or play stupid Facebook games.  Over the years I have consumed a lot of time playing those stupid games.

Just to show you my level of involvement over the years I have been on Facebook I have been involved with Farmvile, FarmTown, ESPNVille, Hidden Items, Texas Hold Them, Candy Crush (Level 92), 3D Slots, Vegas Slots, that save the Pet game to name a few and concurrently I would be playing Hearts, Spades, or Double Deck Pinochle on Yahoo.  But the games I am currently loyal too are; Words with Friends and Slotomania.  If you are a person with little vocabulary skills you should consider challenging me, you will generally win.  But today’s post is about how I did today playing Slotomania.  Of course I will branch out and talk about other things but the jest of the post is that I won 87,000,000 points today playing Slotomania.  I played two different slot machines; King of Gold, minimum pull 10 points, don’t have a clue what the maximum pull is I have yet to do it.  Though when things go well I will bet, as much as, 100K per pull.  Let me be 100 percent clear on this, I do not have single penny invested in the game, I have never bought extra chips, or additional pulls, I play with what the game gives me. Today I when I started my point total was a little over 500K, I started with King of Gold at 25,000 per pull.  I got real lucky and ran my original 500K up to 4M.  By the time I had run my winning up to 4M I was betting 50K per pull.  It was one of those days.  Once I got a little over 4M I changed games to Nashville Nights (it’s one of the “High Roller” games available) minimum bet 100,000 per pull.  It was my intent to play 100K pulls until I lost back down to my starting point of which was 500K.  Being honest at 100K per pull if you’re not lucky you can lose 3.5 Million quickly, I know I have done it often.  But today wasn’t my normal day.  Today was a lucky day. 

I was hitting the button with great authority today, watching the wheels spin and spin, watching winner after winner fall into place, winning millions and millions on a single pull.  I was the Zen Master of the Slotomania Game today. At one point I was up to 23 million point only to lose all by 3 million, then again to immediately  push it back up to 17 million.  Only again to lose down to 1 million.  My goal was to at worse play until I reached the 500,000 that I started the day with.  But every time I got close to that magic number I went on yet another winning streak, pushing my winning back into the millions and millions.  Finally I just got bored with winning, so I stopped when I played back down to 15,500,000 my starting place plus 15 million, not bad for 2 hours work.  All told over 87 million points passed thru my fingers today. It indeed was a good day.

Now that I have talked about how stupidly I gambled today, let me take a moment and talk about being a responsible gambler.  The reason I could throw away so much is because it wasn’t real, it had no value, not a single bit of good came from it other than me smiling when I stopped.  Gambling is very serious, when I was a kid I was taught one rule about gambling, never lost more than you can afford, and I can say with complete honesty I have never lost more than I could afford. PERIOD. NEVER. NOT ONCE.  I have X amount in my wallet to  gamble and that was it, I have never visited an ATM at any casino.  Folk’s gambling is very serious.  You can lose everything, and then more, and then you can lose anything.  It can and does eat you up and spit you out.  It is as addictive as any drug.  The thrill of winning, of hearing all the noise, seeing the lights flash when you strike it big can get under your skin real quick.  But you MUST ALWAYS REMEMBER, that if the players (the collective us) wins on anything that remotely resembles a regular basis, there would not be an open casino in the world.  The Casino’s only exist because people lose their hard-earned money there.  It wonderful to win 87,000,000 points in a day, but remember I pissed all but 15,500,000 away, the house wins even at Facebook.

Folks, as always if you have any questions concerns or issues with my post please feel free to talk to me about it.  Take care, Bill

    I stay away from gambling, except for trying to sell a book, which seems like a pretty big gamble to me most days. Be well, Brenda

      Brenda, Smiling, I stay away as well except for penny machines at the worse. I will wish you much success in publishing and selling. You are gifted. That is clear. Please take care. Bill

    I gambled once. Did not like the feeling of throwing money away. It’s probably a good thing I didn’t win or I may have wanted to go back. I took what I was willing to spend on this one time event and also kept to my limit. Never went to an ATM and purposely didn’t even take my card, or “extra” money with me. 🙂

      Colleen, I played a lot of cards in the Navy, with specific rules, and I was good, and won much much more than I ever lost. I didn’t consider that gambling at all, that was kinda like a job. But going to a casino is just like throwing your money in a toilet, you have to be extremely lucky to win, and to win all the time. I have no real interest in casino’s at all, but the Hard Rock, here in Tampa as the best damn restaurant I have ever eaten, and would almost fight the smoked filled environment to get there. LOL LOL. But not anymore. Take care, Bill

    I’m skittish with gambling. We’ve been to Vegas a couple of times and I play the nickle slots up to the grand loss of maybe $5. That said, I smiled that you find fun ways to occupy your time while getting treatments. As long as you continue to smile while doing them, lol. Take care my friend. Hugs & love from your friend in Calif. ❤

      Paulette, Your like my wife in that regard, she will play up to about 30 bucks before she calls it a day. Me I play the penny machines only and that is only to 40 dollars. But I don’t even do that anymore. But killing time while I nebulize it’s okay. Again no money is lost. Take care, Bill

    Bill – Love the moral of the story. You have not only 1 but 2 great premises here. Anyone that’s ever lived with a compulsive gambler will appreciate your approach to ‘your understand that this is a game and no money was involved.’ Your 2nd premise of entertaining yourself and finding amusement while you undertake your treatments further amplifies the positive way you face life on a daily basis.

    Great story and hope I can stay away from interruptions while I continue to read. Sheri

      Sheri, Thank you for you sweet note, yes it was important to me that folks understand “no money” is involved, and hasn’t been for years. And that I use it to keep me busy while I nebulize, even as I type this I am nebulizing. Take care, Bill

    You won, Bill! You accomplished both the points you wanted to put across. Nebulizing is just about the most boring, time consuming (other than bringing pudding to boil on medium….) task – how wise of you to find something to wile away the enforced “sit and breath” time. On gambling, one of my earliest bosses was a gambler and took me to my first horse race… Fabulous lesson – lots of effort to determine my $2.00 bet and it was over in a minute. “Let’s go, kid. You lost.” I was stunned. As we walked back to the car, I calculated how long it had taken me to earn that $2.00 – best lesson ever!

      Hunt, Smiling, thank you so much, I loved your comment it made me smile a big ass grin. I also wile away my time nebulizing writing posts, but sometimes I just need to do mindless stuff, and facebook gambling is as mindless a thing as any human can do. I love the lesson you learned and how you learned it. What a great educational experience. Take care, Bill

    Haha huntmode, love the pudding comment. And I agree that nebulizing is soooooooooo boring. I turn on the news while I’m nebulizing. I only do that about once a week. I think I will go completely insane when I have to nebulize 3 or 4 times a day.

      August 8, 2014 at 12:44 pm

      Dee, Let me think about this, you nebulize once a week!! and if you had to do it 3 or 4 times a day you would be insane, ergo you much truly think I am insane LOL LOL LOL. And I have tried so hard to hide it. Smiling, someday you may join me in my insanity. LOL LOL Take care, Bill

    We’ve visited a casino or two, but I must say I’ve never quite understood the appeal–and, as you point out, that’s probably a good thing. Your post brought a smile to my face as I imagined you “hitting the button with great authority.” I also imagine there were a few virtual high-fives and other verbal and non-verbal comments throughout. I’m glad you had a good day in spite of having to nebulize.

     
    • FlaHam

      Wanda, Oh I understand the appeal of the casino, especially when I smoked, but they have long lost that appeal. The lights, the glitter, the noise all now cause a headache, and my lungs revolt just stepping in the door. But the number 1 reason I truly do not enjoy casino’s is the losing. I don’t care if I am playing a penny machine, or a quarter machine. They are set up to take your money, period. But doing mindless slots on facebook, that’s okay there is no money involved so losing isn’t an issue, and winning gives you the same high (almost) that you would get at a casino. And doing it in the privacy of my own office when I have the house to myself, what happens here stays here LOL LOL. I have always enjoyed poker and blackjack, at least some level of skill is required to win. And sometimes I have the right level. Wanda, anytime, anyway I bring a smile to your face makes me happy, you have been such a wonderful friend, and I love you, your comments and your grins. Please take care, Bill

    I have played some of those games too Bill! Now I am currently addicted to Klondike, the Lost Expedition. I used to play Words with Friends with some of my blogging buddies, but I moved on. Even though I don’t have to nebulize, there are periods when I need to stay quiet & using my laptop to blog, read posts & keep up with Facebook in between short periods of chores like folding laundry, loading the dishwasher, etc.

      Benze, Playing these mindless games does no permanent harm. You need a break, I need a break. These games are a perfect solution. Of course they can become a problem, if you begin to let your life focus on the game. But it appears to me that is not your situation at all, it’s just a break. Take care, Bill

    I can understand you have to do something while you’re nebulizing. The only one of those games I’ve played is Candy Crush – I’m impressed you got to level 92!

      August 13, 2014 at 10:18 am

      Clowie, I am impressed too LOL LOL. My wife and several of her friends are addicted to it. I am only involved now to give lives and extra turns to folks. I check it once a day to see who needs what. Sometimes I will play my lives out before leaving but gosh is it so difficult. You take care and be safe. Biped Bill
