I'm not sure the best way to sail into your golden years is by kicking ass and taking names gambling at casinos, but it sure beats knitting by the fire while sitting in a rocking chair!
Just ask New Jersey grandmother Patricia DeMauro. At Atlantic City's Borgata hotel and casino, DeMauro recently ruled the craps table for four hours straight despite the mathematical odds that say a "7" is going to show up every six rolls of the dice.
Not impressed? Well, take Dom "The Dominator" LoRiggio's word for it. The craps king said that her performance (only her second time playing craps) was "unbelievable" and the equivalent of shooting 500 free throws without missing a shot.
DeMauro wouldn't disclose how much she made, but I bet her win — supplemented by $100 black chips given to her as tips by a few high rollers — may fund another trip, hopefully this time for a relaxing, nongambling vacation.
