    When ever I win.. I take my winnings and put them to the side.
    But if I hit big.. don't say nothing but the glow on my face tells it all.
    Like some we have a limit.. don't won't to donate to the machine.

    I'm the same Walt. I get so excited. I would not say like hollering but someone watching would definitely think I won more than I probably did. I'm usually frantically looking around for Jon so I can show him. He has a big smile that is a distinct "casino win face" so if I see him walking towards me, he's quiet my the look in his face tells me something good just happened.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    My biggest win was two years ago this week -- a $12,000 Royal Flush jackpot. I was pretty subdued (although ecstatic on the inside). I did leave the casino right away, though, as I wouldn't have been comfortable staying in the casino with that amount of cash on me that anyone in the casino could have seen being given to me. I wanted to get back to my resort and put it in my room safe right away.

    That doesn't happen nearly often enough to suit me. It does happen when I'm practicing on the computer so I know what you mean.

    I rarely gamble. If we happen to be passing through a casino we'll pull the slots a couple of times. That being said if we ever hit for anything even mildly interesting I'm sure I'll keep it cool but she'll likely be doing cart wheels through the casino.

    my husband and I usually split up in the casinos...he plays cards and I slots and roulette. When i do hit big i keep quiet as a church mouse.....that way i can hide the money and surprise him with another paid vacay or something. When we were there with the boys It was extremely hard....they kept giving me up! They would pass by and see what i "had" on the machine and go nuts....lol.....I told them if they kept it quiet drinks were on me!! lolololol
