    I was playing at the Encore and a dealer and pit manager was talking about Terry Watanabe
    How he use to bring light up toys to all the dealers and employees at the Wynn and was very nice.
    Mr Wynn asked him to leave since he said he has a gambling problem and was no longer wanted him to gamble at his casino.

    The toys stopped.

    Harrahs took advantage of him

    That guy played poker for nearly five days, he must have slept during the five minutes an hour breaks?! Otherwise, he was probably hallucinating winning hands.

    These stories are probably why we play, why we keep going back to Vegas. The dream or chance to get that one moment in time. History. I don't think it's because we want to be even richer! If we all amassed the amount of cash we blew on tables and slots, we'd be doing rather well already ! No..we want to have that win. For me, 154 rolls..I can imagine playing that from a lowly $54 across with pass line and odds and turning it into a million.

    Some of those stories are inspiring and others quite sad. Thanks for posting as it gave me a good quick read! Got any new ones? Lol

    The Borgata craps roll...man, everytime I read about that I daydream about what it would've been like and what I would've won.

    Early in my craps career I would've left a lot of money out there. Now? I'm aggressive and would've cleaned up.

    Please let me catch a roll like that.

    I wouldn't even care if I was betting much but I'd love to be the one who rolled just to see how happy I'd make everyone else at the table. Lol It would be epic. Especially rolling that for your friends!

    Good find... Lot's of well known stories like Watanabe, but some details I hadn't heard before. WTF do you do with a $500,000 credit to the gift shop? Buy the whole damn store???? Also the irony of giving him money to buy cheap junk and trinkets....

    I'm assuming the article isn't correct about the Borgata roll either, in that I doubt she didn't roll a 7 at any point, but rather only on the come outs.
