    Getting out of ny wasn't bad this morning it took me exactly 7 hours to get into Youngstown and my wife said enough she made me a reservation
    She loves me what can I say she doesn't want me in a car 10 hours
    There's nothing to do here
    I called a friend who lives in Austin town and he's not around
    I went out for a salad bar at ruby Tuesdays
    Uh vey salads were great fucking food
    I'm alone don't matter tonight
    So I went over to Hollywood Racine over here not even a fucking video poker
    I rarely put a nicke tinto slots but I allowed myself 40 bucks
    And I hit like a mutha ducker
    Go figure the only a lot machine showing dice and I won over 80 bucks on it till I have some back
    Then I left took my free coffee and snuck it out the door
    This is one boring gaming night
    The good news is the room was only 80 bucks and tomorrow and Sunday I'm booked in fire keepers in battle creek
    I love that casino and their bubble I hope the bubble is still there
    Friendliest staff on earth
    And that's it nothing to offer tonight eagle eye
    Oh wait I can offer something valuable
    Anyone coming to ny or burbs totally avoid the George Washington bridge it's a fucking mess of traffic 18-20 hours a day both ways

    FireKeepers is one of my favorite casinos. Friendly dealers, loose slots, and good food. They had a bubble craps when I was there in May.

    Was the bubble the "good" kind, or was it Aruze? :)

    Thanks for the trip report. I enjoy hearing about places I haven't been to. You never know what the future may hold.

    Were you charting the dice on the slot machine for bias?

    Yep no longer have the inter block stadium of craps and roulette it's now aruze
    I went down to check it out no one was there
    I went up to unpack some clothes and when I got back one seat
    I think the machine has some weird shot going on
    I was able to bet 5!times odds on come 4's then it only let me bet 3 timed odds
    3-4-5 odds it seems but sometimes it restricted me
    I started with 200 and got on after a guy rolled over 2!screenfulls of numbers
    So that's close to a 40 roll hand
    I won 163 bucks the only one with a short roll was me
    3 flat progressed to 5 flat


    There are a few tables working now and one is a 5 dollar table

    4 hours again in car with top down I'm exhausted
    Grabbed a quick bite before and will go down later it's steak night at the buffet


    There is a sign posted on bubble stating no points for playing this gam so don't look to insert the players card

    Rested half hour went back to bubble
    A few seats open
    Hit right away then only left with 30 bucks more then I started with
    Headed to the buffet
    In this casino,you need a players card since everything is 10 percent more and anything you purchase with players card gets the 10 off again
    They are tracking you every step here
    Buffet was fucking horrible
    Last time we enjoyed it
    It was mostly empty the entire time I was there and only a few people on line
    Now I know why
    I'd give it a c minus
    Very disappointed for 31 dollars on steak night

    I walked over near the bissby or whatever it's called coffee stand and the 5 dollar near it was almost empty so I got in for 600
    And I was surprised,5 dollar table with 10 times odds
    Again seems the pattern so far today I shot up on some guys long roll of repeaters
    Then my fucking body shut down I broke into a heavy sweat and fucking myasthenia won this time
    I had trouble focusing I pushed a bit too hard driving in this heat and it caught up to me
    I gave back a couple hundred and knew I had to get up here and hydrate and cool,off
    Good news is I'm up money today,not a whole lot,but I'm winning and that's always a good sign
    I'll rest up and try the table a bit later if there's still 5 dollar min or I'll head back to the bubble
    The bubble is fucked up
    It lets you take 5 times odds on pass line but not on come bets
    It might be the terminal I played,the same one

    I just dropped a lot of meds to see if it clears up my head

    Come bet rules,once again, simple Simon betting and I'm the only one at table making money

    Went back down
    No seats on bubble
    Casino isn't packed but it's getting crowded
    Hit the same 5 dollar table and again I did well then the bottom fell out and I left down 280
    So I'm hovering around even for today
    I got a nice dose of cellcept in me and felt good enough to go down
    Hey is anyone is around here tomorrow come over
    And we can shoot a little
    A short Asian fellow kept giving me slaps on the back and hugs
    Normally I would have pushed him off but the 22 y/0 knockout. With her bf on my other. Side balanced it out
    It was all in good fun,he wasn't annoyiny ju st close in my space
    I didnt mind
    End of night I lost 280 and I'm done going to bed soon
    Casino was busy but not packed

    3rd time I'm here
    I really like this place,it's run correctly all staff is friendly and talented

    I went down to get coffee at biggby coffee and it didn't open till 8 so I walked over to empty bubble and took out 80 dollars in 5 and 10 dollar bills I've gotten as change
    Bet it on one roll with a 9 dollar hard six and 12 dollar hard 8 and the one other woman at bubble hit me the hard six
    Took my 43 dollar win and got coffee

    I was thinking about ordering a truckload of these for my friends and family after using my voodoo di skills and cleaning out the casino
    For those that can't see it's a truck load of maseratis

    If the light turns green when you put in your card you still want to use it. It'll help with room and food offers etc if you're looking for those.
