Kelly & Michael: Vegas Gambler Loses $500,000
A Las Vegas gambler is having some regrets. Kelly said she is bad at Blackjack, because “I don’t understand how people count to 21 that fast.” Michael said no one will help him when he looks around the table for advice.
Free drinks are a perk for big spenders, but this particular player lost $500,000, and he blames the casino, because he said he was blackout drunk while he was playing for 17 hours. Should he have to pay, or does he have a case?
Kelly said that you should have some personal responsibility, and that is a large sum of money to lose. He received two $250,000 credits from the casino during his gambling marathon, which suggested that he must be reasonably well off.
Michael’s suggestion was that he should negotiate and come to an agreement with what he should pay back. Kelly said this is too good an excuse that people may begin to abuse.

Spring It On Travel Trivia: Scott Foley
Terry Simon from Renton, Washington, was up very early to play for a vacation to The Buccaneer in St. Croix.
What nationality did we say Scott Foley’s wife is?
The answer was Polish, so getting up early paid off for Terry. She also helped someone in the audience take home a $500 Cuisinart appliance package.
