    It is not that important for you to use a table or online gaming option that offers auto-daubing. However, it is a rule that if you purchase a large number of bingo cards or tickets, you must use an auto-daubing table if you are playing offline or the turn on the auto-daubing feature if you are playing on the internet. Any reputable casino should be able to offer you any of the two options depending on the platform it used. Another rule you need to know is the calling bingo rule. This rule differs from offline casinos to the kind of casino online you choose to play the game from. Juegos de bingo will require you to use the automatic calling feature. However, in the case of a gaming room, you will have to shout out bingo.

    Everyone who leaves a casino has a story to tell, and, for better or worse, little or no hesitation about sharing it. Casinos are, after all, our society’s great equalizer. All who enter this realm of gambling and entertainment, who search for that “one big score” or merely one fleeting moment of escape from the drudgery of daily life, are offered the same chance at success—or failure.

    In Nevada, casino stories are omnipresent. Literary anthologies, short stories, plays, countless works of fiction, graduate theses and dissertations all employ the casino as a main character. One can readily find children’s books, romance novels, erotica, and science fiction all set in and around casinos. In today’s modern publishing environment there is a ready and growing supply of electronic novels and online short stories set in mega-resort casinos on the Las Vegas Strip, or in tired and tattered gambling establishments whose crackling neon signs have seen better days.

    Casino stories are a common feature of our popular literature, a complement to the phenomenon of Las Vegas’ recent economic and population growth. While the city prides itself on the ability of its people and its buildings to reinvent themselves all too frequently, one can still find the tawdry remnants of a town that rose from the arid Southern Nevada desert in post-World War II America, alongside the modern gaming resort complexes that appear to devour all available real estate on the Strip. In these gaming establishments, everyone is free to reinvent themselves, forget themselves, find themselves and, sometimes, to lose themselves.

    Such casino stories present the great American fairy tale, the tragicomic opera, the thrilling “whodunit,” and the classic love story. The challenge, of course, is in separating fact from fiction. In casinos—where reality is hidden amidst a blinking, musical array of slot machines and the endless clatter of poker chips, where Elvis impersonators and hookers mingle with convention goers and locals—fact and fiction are irrelevant opening acts.

    money at the casinos never fail to amuse and amaze us. These stories serve not only as a strong testament to the power of luck (not to mention skill) but also as an inspiration for many gamblers to continue playing and gambling in casinos all over the world.

    Joseph Jaggers, a British engineer, found a bizarre way to win in roulette in 1873. After studying the roulette wheels at the Monte Carlo casino, Jaggers came up with numbers that frequently come up on one of the wheels. He went on to win $450,000 until the casino modified the wheel.

    In 1980, William Lee Bergstrom, also known as the Suitcase Man, won more than $1.5 million in craps. Bergstrom arrived at Binion’s Horseshoe and asked if he can bet $1 million at the craps table. However, he was able to come up with only $777,000 and proceeded to bet all his money on the Don’t Pass line.

    Bergstrom was so confident of winning that he brought another suitcase for his expected winnings. The shooter went on to “seven out” in three dice throws and Bergstrom left the casino an instant millionaire.

    Archie Karas, a Greek immigrant, earned a place in gambling history by winning more than $17 million during “the Run” at the Las Vegas casinos. Karas arrived in Las Vegas in 1992 and borrowed $10,000 to play at the poker tables. He immediately recovered his investment, repaid his debt, then won $1 million in poker.

    Karas then went to Binion’s and for a period of six months beat everyone at the poker tables. Then he headed to the craps table, winning game after game. By the time his amazing winning streak ended, Karas was $17 million richer.

    In 1995, media magnate Kerry Packer was said to have won $25 million at the blackjack tables at the MGM Grand casino. Packer was playing 6-8 hands simultaneously at more than $200,000 per hand until he made $30 million, then lost $5 million to settle at $25 million. Upon leaving the casino premises, Packer tipped 40 casino employees $2,500 each.

    Howard Stern in 2001 offered to bet $1 million on a single blackjack hand as a publicity stunt. The casinos didn’t bite and the bet was reduced to $100,000. Stern won the bet and the proceeds went to charity.

    Hustler Magazine publisher Larry Flynt reportedly lost $2 million to Amarillo Slim and $5 million to Stu Ungar in separate poker matches. On good days, however, Flynt was said to be an excellent poker player.

    These stories are real events of both famous and ordinary people winning extraordinary sums at the casinos. These stories should hopefully motivate you to win and succeed in your gambling endeavors. Good luck!
