So I went to Atlantic City with a couple friends last weekend to gamble and hang out. I was going in expecting to lose at least a couple hundred dollars, but I ended up winning a hundred after about seven hours of gambling in the casino. I was up about $350 at one point and could have just called it a day at that. The problem was that I would've had to spend the next several hours just watching other people gamble and that's no fun. So I put a few chips in my pocket and ended up losing the rest. Overall it was a good trip though, we stayed at the Tropicana. My new favorite game is Spanish 21. It's similar to Blackjack, except there are no tens. You also have an option to place a side bet called, "match the dealer". It either of your cards are the same as the dealers face card you're paid three to one, and if it's suited you're paid twelve to one (They use eight decks at a time so the odds aren't too bad).
