£800 from the Grosvenor casino in Leeds whilst I was at university back in the 1990s. Me and a mate used to regularly go after we had been to the night clubs during the week as they shut at 2.00am and the casino used to shut at 4.00am. We were also able to get free soft drinks and sandwiches whilst playing there or a free breakfast in the restraunt.
Being students we never used to take more than £25 each each night, I remember the time quite clearly as I had a very lucky run on roulette spaning several a couple of weeks, which in total I took over £2500 out of the place. This was a bag of money to me at the time and was in fact more than a whole years grant (those things you used to get whilst studying).
Spent it on a lot of beer, fags, and a Harmon Kardon surround sound amp and speakers. Oh and one fiver was spent to light a fag up from the gas cooker in the halls of residence to wind up a fellow housemate who couldn't contain his annoyance when I kept walking in night after night with a big wad of money.
Ahh fond memories.
Was that a tip? why would you put £250 on a 30/1 shot
I would if it had a 29/1 or less chance of winning. If the odds you get is higher than the probability of it happening, bet on it. The knack is knowing the true probility of something happening, if you are better at pricing up a race than the bookies you will beat them, simple.
(I am not better than them, but some people are and do. Whether you put £250 on it or not depends on the size of your bankroll, but even a "Pro" may limit that kind of bet to £100, but each to their own, for somepeople £250 is chicken feed)
I think most serious bonuswhores will know what the player was doing while betting 125$ on a 400$ balance...
If you would like to start a new thread about it in the Casino Strategy section so we can analyse it too that would be very interesting to see. If you are just going to imply "I know more than you but im not telling" its not really of much use to anyone so why bother?
