Schiphol airport in Amsterdam is one of the few that has an actual casino inside the boarding area. I was flying back to London and decided to spend part of my remaining Euros at the tables since I had nothing better to do.

Well, that and I lost 1,100 pounds in London on video Roulette machines. -_-

I just had a buy in of Euro 40 and logic dictates that I put everything on a single number if I wanted to have a chance to win back the loss in London. Unfortunately, logic wasn’t working very well due to one last trip to the coffeeshop before heading to the airport.

I put Euro 5 on the number 29 (my age). I was the only one at the table and was just playing for fun, having partially forgotten the loss. On the very first spin, the ball dropped on…


You guessed it. 29. I won Euro 175.

Jesus Christ. If I had my wits with me, I would have dropped all Euro 40 on a single number since that’s how I usually bet.

It would have netted me a cool Euro 1,400 which would have covered all my losses in London. >.<

BTW, this is the first casino I’ve seen that allows photography. :)

  1. Hmm, is there no second part to this post? Because recently all your wins have been followed by ‘and so I decided to put everything on the red, but then…’ ;)

    If you walked off with the 175 Euros, well done!

  2. Eh, Euro 175 is better than nothing already!

    Have fun on your holiday! *jealous*

    • …but it’s nothing compared to a 1.1k pound loss. :S

      I wish I hadn’t done that.

      Thanks bro! No gambling on this trip! :)

  3. mate, seriously? walked away after winning just a mere 175?

  4. well it’s still a cool 175 euros nonetheless, fortune doesn’t always favor the bold. lol

    • Better than a loss, that’s for sure and unfortunately I exchanged it back to RM, not realizing I’m heading back to Europe in a couple of days. :S

  5. Bringing down the house around Europe I see. All the best in your quest.

  6. Next time bet your life bro!

  7. you’re lucky. i guess you do have your ups and downs. but this casino is cool to allow photography. too bad i didn’t explore this place when i was in schnipol.
