Bad weather caused my arthritis to act up the last few days. Even though I have prescribed drugs/pain killers, they don't often work. Finally a clear day, my joints were functioning fairly well and I decided to take the only Drug that always cures my ailments...I hopped on my Wing and rode 72 miles to a Seminole Indian Reservaton Casino by Lake Okeechobee to have a five dollar lunch and maybe play some cards.

Getting off the Wing, my joints creaked a little but that's normal. Inside the Casion I was directed to a desk for 1st time visitors. I signed up for a "wild card" pass that allows the casion to track your gambling and award you points. I was given a "free" $10.00 play chit for signing up and a list of slot machines the chit could be used in. I don't play slots, but I never try to look a gifthorse in the snout. I sat at the first empty slot machine and inserted my new Wild Card then my chit. The machine showed I had a $10.00 credit. To get this ordeal over with I placed a max bet (about $2.50) and hit the play button. I did this four times!

The last spin caused the machine to go crazy. A waitress standing behind me told me that I had just hit the jackpot for a $1000.00 bucks. Sure enough when the machine quick flashing and spinning, it showed a credit of $1010.76. I cashed out, went to the cashier and picked up my money. I searched for the youn waitress who had told me I had won and gave her a $10.00 tip. I played black jack and won another sixty dollars. I left the casino and noticed that my knees were hurting, I climbed aboard the Wing and headed home. Yep, the Gold Wing is my drug of choice.

Just a short story about good things happening to one who rides a Honda:D

That is absolutely fantastic! And on their money too. We had a casino in the town I lived in before here and you will be hearing from them. They will offer you comps to come back and play some more. Eventually they will get their money back but if you are just doing it for the entertainment then you both win. And getting there on the bike is even better.

Never played bingo before and never since.
About 10 years ago may family of five took a cruise to some islands. We even took a niece with us .My wife ask me to go with them and play and bought me 3 tickets.
The unbelievable did happen. I won about $3700.00. The prize was double that much but there was one more winner. The trip for my niece turned up to be free.

Congrats......your one of the lucky ones.

I don't usually have that kind of luck regardless of what I drive/ride to the casino's.

Just remember they did not build those beautiful buildings from customers winning!!!!!!

Congrats on your run of luck.

We have a forum member that is down on her luck. She is our resident trike expert and is in need. Go to the thread "Helping Trike Lady." You will find other forum members contributing to help one of our own.

Here is the thread on helping her out:

You would get double karma points for any help you can provide as she is from Florida too.

Val would appreciate it and too humble to ask.
