    Sounds like you're having a good time on your tour. Even did some shopping at Arundel Mills, lol.

    Continued good luck at the tables, Liman.

    Been here a bit down 200 took a break staying nearby here overnight
    Nice casino
    4 craps tables 5 times odds no fire or alltally
    Reminds me of downtown Vegas casino lots of old looking ceiling fixtures chandeliers and all wood paneling and molding
    Probably done on purpose
    Nice feel
    Didn't smell any smoke

    Chips seem brand new
    Tough to tupe on phone later

    The table I played on this afternoon had something called hot craps shooter betting
    It pays off according to the amount of combinations of numbers you hit before a seven out

    Wasn't crowded this afternoon, I had the longest roll on the table but didn't really make anything
    One horn number after another
    My wife was nearby and figured I was up a small fortune with all the yelling and high diving going on at my table
    Yep, I was the horns bettor savior today
    The game slowed down to a snails pace and I left after I sevened out,the stickman pissed me off with his moron comment

    He couldn't figure out payouts at all and there were 8 guys pressing and pressing the horn numbers
    It was mayhem,but players were loving it
    When I pressed a hard way
    The stockman was rude and told me I should wait until he faces my side of the table
    Not politely,rudely and I thoug finally he was done
    The pit boss leaned over and shook his head he has it covered
    I took my cell out of my pocket and asked the pit boss if the stick wants to borrow the calculator

    Trust me after that 2 things happened
    First the stick didn't like me for sure
    Second
    Now that asshole made it easy for me to decide how much to tip later
    Nada,he screwed the rest of his crew,not that my 10-20 dollar in tip money will mean much by itself
    But he sucked,really shouldn't be at stick if he has no clue how to pay off bets


    And so continues my losing ways
    I'm still sitting on a nice win from live,but I've given some back
    One more shot soon,then I go home a winner this trip regardless

    No buffet in this casino,but it's a nice place not a big selection to dine,



    Tremendous casino, my wife is really enjoying it and that counts for a lot for me

    Plus she held her own all day and she played alot

    Too bad there are no hotels attached to it,it's a racetrack no horses today
    We are 3 minutes away by car
    This is a hopping town,university of Delaware and some smaller colleges
    Must be 10 hotels within a 1/4 mile of ours

    If I was throwing the dice I would have been all over that
    I always am
    with a $5000 win how many times could you lose the $5 and still be money ahead
    do that math , that's the math that matters
    not the 1.41 % that cripples all these nickle dime craps guys on this forum

    With all the typos in your messages in this thread, I thought Dave G Ct might have hacked your log in and posted under your ID. :D

    The $5 into $5000 wager is 10:1 against x 10:1 against x 10:1 against. Paid fairly, it should get you $5500.

    Although it is not easy to do, it does NOT surprise me that it is sometimes hit. First, the player must have the onions to leave all the winnings sit on the table. This will eliminate 95% of the players thinking about it.

    I play the hard ways about as many times a year as there are seasons, and I stop playing as soon as they disappear without a winner. Coming as no surprise to me, this is the great majority of the time.

    In spite of this, I have had three successive winners 4 times. I would guess that I have placed maybe a couple of hundred $5 hard way bets in my "career". Results are therefore WAY better than expected, yet I continue to have little to no interest in the wager, but will always press it heavily when it does hit.

    Not sure if this makes me smart or stupid, and do not really care.

    I think that increasing bet size when winning is both the only way to win big at craps and the easiest way to return a large chunk of winnings back to the bank. It has gone both ways for me, and I am sure for most others as well.

    But James only does it in harrahs at New Mexico,maybe that explains it all


    I pressed a hard six earlier today

    I had 10 pressed to 20 hit again, but didnt press and 7 out came


    I hit more consecutive horn numbers all day today then I did in the past 10 years of playing

    There were some very happy crapsters,did nothing for me

    I lost again tonight,but am going home an overall trip winner
    Unless I am going with family or someone else,I don't think I'd go to ac anymore since this casino is same distance time wise,and I didn't know it existed until yesterday

    Much nicer place to be, college town and all, good crowd, and plenty of activity in area

    You do this more than the average bear, that is for sure. Were you placing or coming in addition to the PL/odds or were you mixing it up?

    fuck me, I did worse than I thought.
    Im home, thankgod there was zero traffic coming home, jewish holiday and all, schools were closed, people stayed home, whatever, 2 hours 20 minutes from hotel in Delaware to home.

    I thought I ended up around 1400 for the trip, not shabby, my first night wins and Hollywood small win withstood the losses I had then, but when I counted all my cash just before, seems I only won around 800 or so. I gave my wife a lot of cash this trip for expenses, and she spent at least 500 bucks in the mall at Maryland live, so my cash was going to her for food expenses, snacks, novelties, etc.

    I didn't get one fucking teeshirt, Maryland live shop didn't have a tee shirt big enough to fit my penis, let alone my body, and Hollywood shop was closed for the day.
    didn't look at Delaware park, just forgot. I like to collect tees from all the casinos I visit.
    while my wife didn't do that bad, she gave a little donation, but nothing terrible.
    I cant get a straight answer from her, I think maybe she dropped a bit more than she told me, but its ok, like I said, we spent a lot of dough on food, clothes, shopping, fabrics(yep, I had to take her to a fabric store in Delaware,just like she told me I have to take her to quiltique on Stephanie st in henderson).
    I saw her win some nice bonuses last night in Delaware park.
    I also played 5 dollar blackjack on the machine, won 40 bucks, then quit.
    The signs say 2 dollar blackjack tables, live blackjack during the week at Delaware park, I asked the guard where they were, one would have thought I was asking him to donate a kidney, he didn't give me a straight answer, but I got they were downstairs. I didn't see them, but then again, I didn't look that carefully. I don't care, but it may be important to card players to find a 2 dollar table on the east coast these days.

    overall, Maryland live is the biggest, Delaware park is almost as big, long and narrow, but long, 2 floors,
    Delaware park offers nothing worth dining in, Maryland live has many places to dine, including a buffet, which we didn't try.
    Delaware park is near university of Delaware and some small schools, so the area is packed with chain restaurants, stores, etc.....

    I probably would never go back to Hollywood casino in Perryville, only one craps table and there isn't much of a choice , only 3,4,5 odds.
    When they build the hotel at Maryland live, I will visit again, 100% sure, as long as I have more time and it isn't my final destination. nice place, upbeat, alive.
    Hollywood was like a morgue.
    Delaware park was active, but pretty empty also, (weekday and no horses yesterday)

    Ill ride this small win, and save my cash, because vegas is only 8 weeks away, and I don't have the kind of winnings hall does, and add in, no comped rooms this trip, no casino hotels, so I have the credit card bill for all the rooms plus all the food. We forfeited 20 dollars in free play from Hollywood and the comp dollars we accrued, maybe 30 dollars in all when we decided to move on to Delaware park(like I said, I had no idea there was a full casino there).
    forgetting that asshole of a dealer at Delaware, the rest of the crew was as good as any top vegas casino. instant calculations, no mistakes, they watch your bets, remind you, ask you, pit bosses impressed me by remembering my name when I went back to tables at night.....super friendly, so one bad apple wont spoil the whole bunch, I just got pissed off at one jackass, sorry.

    I rolled more hard 6s this trip then I rolled the past 10 years, not to mention horn numbers. incredible.
    If I pressed the horn bet, every single roll I made, I think I would have made 10 thousand dollars, no joking. the guy on my right told me if I roll another horn bet when he pressed up, hed kiss me, and I had the table laugh when I said, hey, Im not homophobic, but youre not my type, so don't be offended if I stop you!
    his wife got a kick out of me, he was snapping his fingers and dancing in circles, Id guess him to be around 75 y/o, ex military, he had a navy hat on with some numbers and insignias. plus he looked like he could have kicked the shit out of anyone half his age. but he had a great sense of humor, and while Im not really into the high fiving, lets all hug shit at a craps table, he was a pleasure to be playing next too, and the guy on my left was giving me nothing but love also, another heavy horn bettor, especially when hed yell out as I was picking up the dice, press my horn high aces another whatever, and I hit aces, twice in a row.
    and I didn't make a nickel, actually lost on so many because I was shooting from the pass line.
    sad, but that's the way it goes sometimes.
