Duh.. you do! You may be a Simpleton but you’re no dummy! As I’ve discussed in the past, I have decided to go with the Vegas contest, based on votes from many of you. You just need to guess, down to the PENNY how much of the money I am designating specifically FOR GAMBLING that I will bring back home with me. The Lady Friend is the most honest person on earth and she’ll help verify it.
So to give you a little background on my trip… I have been to Vegas about 10 times, so I know I’ll spend plenty of money on food, booze, touristy crap, booze, taxis and we’re going to see the Beatles LOVE show – very excited about that. Oh, and I may have a little booze when I am in Vegas too, undecided on that.
But all that stuff will be completely separate from my gambling money so you don’t need to factor any of those things into your guess. I’ll be starting with exactly $600 for gambling, with the intention of never spending (losing) more than $150 per day since I am there four days. I’ll do a variety of gambling between blackjack, roulette, craps, slots and even betting on a couple sporting events. So lots of ways to lose!
Also, since I am dividing the $600 into four increments, if on Thursday I lose all $150 in the first two hours I will NOT dip into the next $150 until Friday. And likewise if I have a good day Thursday and turn the $150 into $250 I’ll set all that aside and start over with the next $150 on Friday. Get it?
Hope that makes sense.. as you can imagine, I would have to have four extremely bad days to lose all $600. In fact, I can assure you that will NOT happen because if I am losing that bad Thursday, Friday and Saturday I will be very conservative on Sunday. So in other words, don’t bother guessing $0 because I will absolutely bring at least something back.
Basically how I gamble the money isn’t that important unless you want to over analyze it. All you need to do is make a guess in the form of a dollar amount, right down to the penny. The two closest guessers will EACH win a $50 Amazon gift certificate. This is not Price Is Right, you can guess over the amount and still win as long as you are the closest. But you can only make ONE guess, so make it count!
Remember it is possible for me to come back with more than $600 too.
If this is confusing, feel free to ask questions to clarify via comments and I’ll answer either in a comment back or in my next post. All guesses have to be in by midnight next Friday April 29th and they all have to be made in the form of a comment ON THIS POST – not on my subsequent posts. I am not going to search for your guesses because you couldn’t follow the rules.. make your guess here.
Oh, and speaking of rules – I make the rules for this contest, and they are subject to change at any time if I feel like doing so!
So… what are you waiting for? MAKE A GUESS!!
