Senior and Finance major Thomas Asma, was one of the luckier persons who continually won games during the evenings festivities, giving himself and others the notion he may not fair all that badly in larger gambling venues. He said, "I was having a lot of fun gambling and meeting people. I loved it, I hadn't gambled in quite a while but this was both a good and cheerful atmosphere." Peer Manny Avelar, senior Finance major, said, "I benefited from the event because I learned several rules and tactics on how to win for the next go 'round. "It's actually pretty easy to learn, and the Finance organization was working with you because the event was centralized on having a good time. "No one bother to take it too literally; it was more specifically for members to get the chance to know one another." The participants of the evening were not betting actual currency; the only stipulation was that they paid $10 cover charge at the door, which kept the dice rolling all night. The Finance Association offered prizes such as free Astros tickets, restaurant gift certificates and a DVD player. There were a total of six dealers were there. Four tables were card games and roulette was being played. The sponsor of the event had taught inexpert dealers how to deal before the event started. David Harvey a junior Finance major, said, "The event was something that most usually cannot be pulled off and the art of dealing is in and of itseli difficult for many to learn." Even Harvey, who knows the games of blackjack and poker, discovered new things that night. "This as casino night; people got a taste of gambling and learned that it's not easy to win, this isn't what you do to get rich; this was a creative way for the organization to raise money and have fun at the same time," said Harvey -Yasuko Yada 138 Organizations Organizations 139
