Last Roll of The Dice

April 2, 2023 at 2:17 am

I’m pretty sure that over the years I’ve disproportionately been in the casino ‘last chance saloon’ and clawed my way back more than most. There is something quite satisfying to the point of being almost movie scene-like to be at the point of near defeat and about to go home only for your luck to suddenly change and suddenly you’re back in the race.

My game of choice tends to be roulette and so this eventuality has happened for me during that more than any other casino game. I usually do am overly ambitious robin hood style last arrow with my final bet. Something that seems even less likely to result in a positive outcome than the prior bets. Typically I’ll place it on a single number, sometimes even zero.

Of course there’s no witchcraft and magic at play here and so the majority of the time this final bet is an much of a left down as the ones before it. However when it comes good there is no better feeling in gambling! Here’s hoping that you’ve saved up all of your good fortune for that final spin of the wheel, that last roll of the dice.
