    See what kind of luck you guys have @MaryAnne

    Thx
    I have several apps, Thx. No money ever leaves my pocket.

    I honestly like Slingo the best as a game. You used to play against 10 people. Now they have changed it, but still my favorite on line game.

    Yeah, the game I linked is free, I just wonder how another player will do on it.

    Thx

    I tried to down load it, but came up with a bunch of others, but have played some similar.

    The best strategy to consistently win is to play poker against other customers.

    Of course, you aren't beating the house, you are taking other customers money.

    Get good at poker, stay sober and you can win.

    Play against the machines, or the table games, and the house will always come out ahead over time...

    You want to find a jacks or better machine with a 9-6 pay scale.

    Thx

    Bad news for some people, of course.

    Thanks for the advice...but, I don't gamble at all.

    My husband plays the slots a little.

    I have played slots and blackjack in the past.

    I just don't have the gambling bug.

    But, if I wanted to gamble seriously, I'd learn to play poker and play against other customers.

    I don't think I can beat the house, but might beat other customers...
    Thanks from Thx1138

    Nope. Employees were tired of finding cups of urine all over the casino. Casino employees have to deal with a lot of things, but they decided that this was over the line.

    I am down 0.03% for the year.

    Yesterday my IRA went down 2.79% according to Morningstar portfolio tracker.

    Last year I was up about 17%.

    My portfolio is fairly conservative.

    How bout you?

    It's all about prudent timing. Most of us (myself included) lack the knowledge to time specific stock investments. But rather than make my annual Roth contribution (to a mutual fund) in January, I invested it in a "cash account," which makes no money at all. Now, while stocks are low, I can quickly move the money into my Roth fund, leveraging the depressed market value.
