Lightning Strikes Twice  Do you ever have that feeling that you can’t catch a break in a casino? And conversely have you ever been on a roll to the point where you felt like you couldn’t put a foot wrong? Perhaps your number came up twice on the roulette wheel, or you got a three of a kind in three card poker. Those really are the casino moments we all try to capture!

Some people experience next level luck though, luck I could only dream of… luck on steroids! One such person recently experiencing this midus touch is a Florida man who won a cool $1.2 million on a $20 per spin slot machine at Hard Rock Casino, Biloxi, Florida. Few people weee in the high slots area at the time, so there was no big fanfare for the huge windfall.

Due to local gaming rules on big wins, the lucky man, known as Fred S, had to wait for the win to be verified by the gaming commission. Fred however waits for no man,  and decided to keep playing on a nearby slot machine, figuring that he should move away from the one he just cleaned out. In a ‘lightning strikes twice’ moment, Fred almost immediately won another $14,000. Talk about having a good day!

“When the stars shine on you they shine,” , said Nick Polcino, vice president of casino operations.

I’m still waiting for my Fred S moment!


Casino Games - Poker  Poker is arguably the most famous card game for gamblers. The game essentially counts on the players gambling and applying strategy to attain the highest value combination of cards and thus win. With its origins in 19th century United States, the game went on to become a worldwide favorite for wagering enthusiasts.


In a typical game of poker the dealer deals each player three cards. Players can either have a strong hand or a weak on depending on the kind of cards they have been dealt. Betting begins when one player makes a forced bet which is placed according to that player’s chances of winning. Every player has the chance to be the dealer even though the casino provides a dealer on the casino floors. As the rounds go on, players can keep changing cards, changing the type of hand they have been dealt.

All variants of poker require a blend of skill and bravado which a player can use to make other players fold thus missing the next turn and forfeiting their bet and possible winnings. There is a high chance that players can win depending on their know-how of the game and what cards they receive. Winning is a mixture of good luck and strategy as players will change cards and bluff to shake opponents and
get them to play into the player’s strategy.
