What do you do when your dad gives you money to gamble?
You lose miserably. Not because you suck or you picked the wrong machine, but because I’m starting to think that place is rigged. My parents and I decided to head to Maryland Live! Casino on Saturday in hopes of winning big bucks. Unfortunately we left with fewer dollars than what we walked in with.
Conveniently located by the Arundel Mills Mall, halfway between Baltimore and Washington, this area has everything you need. From many restaurants options to Costco and shopping. It gives you every reason to waste your hard earn money, yay!!
Our first stop was food! One thing I love about Olive Garden is that you can get so full off of the garlic bread and salad that once your food comes, you’re already satisfied.
Chicken & Shrimp Carbonara $18.29
Sautéed seasoned chicken, shrimp and spaghetti tossed in a creamy sauce with bacon and roasted red peppers
Strawberry Daiquiri $7.29
The pasta wasn’t as epic as I thought it would be but it was definitely flavorful and delicious. The strawberry daiquiri was refreshing. At first I questioned if the waiter gave me a virgin drink because the alcohol didn’t hit me until we got to the casino.
Maryland Live! Casino
I’m not really big on casinos. Maybe because I don’t like wasting my money and would rather spending it on adventurous activities or food. Either way, I still sucked. Luckily I went with my dad and his wallet. Yes, his WALLET! My eyes widened as he pulled not one, not two, not three, but FIVE twenty dollar bills. And you know how much he gave me?…. $10. What am I supped to do with $10? I made it worth the wait while he blew the rest.
My favorite machine was Dragon’s Temple because no matter how low your money got, you somehow end up winning enough the next round to keep you alive or even win big. Before leaving the casino, my mom decided to waste my dad’s 30 cent voucher for the hell of it. We turned 30 cents into $21.03. Of course that’s not winning the jackpot but hey, she walked in spending nothing and left with something!
