    those rat bastards
    They took out Shaq blackjack and replaced it with electronic roulette
    I didn't have free play or match play it all expired end of June again those rat bastards
    My wife had 15 dollars free slot and played over 90 minutes with it and left with a 51 dollar slot ticket
    Tables were empty this afternoon I did not have the urge so I went to vp with 20 bucks and hit a nice 4 of a kind and left shortly after with a 30 dollar profit
    Followed my wife around and left
    Going out for a burger and then back to hit the tables
    Really empty in there this afternoon and very little smoke
    Here's my video poker ticket woohooo
    Enough for dinner

    Great night for both of us
    I played 2 sessions at only 10 dollar table and won 390 and 270
    A lot of crazy bettors
    One guy betting Hilo and kept hitting for 5 or 10
    He played every roll so he was giving a lot back but walked away with 800
    You notice since the casino counts your money in front of the table and announced
    It

    One guy bet 10 on don't every roll and he got slaughtered so many 7 on come outs

    One di shooter with Ohio state tee on a kid of around 30
    Had a good roll of nothing but 6 and 8's
    But didn't convince me of anything since his dice were all over the table
    I did notice he meticulously put the 2 s on top with 4 faces out front every roll

    My wife had a surprisingly good night
    She won money she never took out money played on that same 15dollar free play and won 30 dollars at the end
    I'm beat and had to quit my eyes weren't working anymore
    It's so fucking hot and muggy today I never put the top down
    But a good day for us
    We are headed to Lancaster in the morning because my wife is going to a meet and greet luncheon with Jenny
    I might head over to Hollywood grantville tomorrow night if our friends want to go
    I won't leave them flat if they prefer no casino


    I only took a pic of my 390 win

    Oh shaq blakxjack is gone but s new hybrid blackjack game is installed but not running yet
    No bubble

    3,4,5 odds so I only bet pass and 30 6 and 8
    Pressed to 60 took 2 off then pressed to 90
    Only got to 90 twice never hit on ninety
    A lot of points made that kept me up

    The restrooms are tremendous in size here
    I know you're yanking my chain but they are tremendous and clean
    Not thrilled with a lot of the patrons in the casino though
    Plenty of lowlifes like ac

    These casino trips make me nervous
    We both seem to be so into this kinda gig,travel,gamble,rinse and repeat
    When my wife retires next month it can become very costly
    And the bad part is we both fucking love it
    Especially going to new places and new casinos

    Winning is always what we want but anyone that plays knows it's a craps shoot
    Literally
    Win some lose some
    The most important thing in our lives right now is our health and happiness
    First time in 25 years we will finally be off full time together and we can start our trips all over the country
    Together
    No responsibilities
    My kids are successful in their own homes and married and we are free
    Sept 1 can't come fast enough

    Being able to do anything that you want to is something that you and your wife will enjoy. The early you can retire the more you can enjoy it. You have to live everyday like it's going to be your last one!

    I will do anything for my wife she is the most important thing in my life. So, when she wants to do something we do it!

    I spend my craps playing time before she wakes up but I can be to any casino out here in a few minutes drive. I hunt for tables that have no one on them and that the have good dealers!

    Yesterday I had one of my worst dealer that has dealt to me for over 15 years and there she was correcting and teaching a dealer that I never saw there before. The guy needed all the help he could get.

    That brings up the point that all the good dealers are going away because they are retiring! One reason I think bubble craps may have so merits.

    After all there are no bad dealers that you have to put up with, I hate the bubble machines and can't see how anybody can put up with that voice.

    When they had the machine in Sunset Station you could hear the damn machine at the craps table because of the acoustics and the machine was nowhere near the tables!

    Boy am I happy that they took the machine out of there! One of my buddies just retired on the first of April, and he is in hospice with brain cancer that might be from him smoking like a chimney. I tried to get him to stop smoking ever since the first day that I met him, and it didn't work!

    Just make sure that you have other things to do that will get you out of the house and give you exercise. Both of us are out everyday doing something besides the casinos!

    When you are in the casinos any win in better than losing, just remember that if it's been going wrong get out of there!

    Enjoy traveling to new places or revisiting areas you haven't been to in a long time.

    Deadwood, South Dakota has at least 3 casinos with bubble craps machines and also 3 with live craps tables (hours vary). Located close to beautiful Custer State Park / Black Hills National Forest, Mount Rushmore and Sturgis.

    Good to hear it's being installed in smaller casinos. No question, a cheaper way to offer craps....and 24/7.

    When traveling I always stop in the smaller casinos to see what they have you never know what they are hiding behind those doors! The last time we were in New Mexico I played at Route 66 My wife loved the rooms there! By the way, the table wasn't bad at all and make money there!

    We stop by casinos along the way when we're traveling, too. Similarly, I had hoped to be able to visit all of the Tower Records locations in the US, but unfortunately that chain closed years ago.

    We stopped by Route 66 Casino Hotel in 2006 on our way back from my sister's wedding in CA. Didn't stay at the hotel. The $1 chip from that casino remains one of my all-time favorites.

    Many smaller casinos can't afford the staffing needed to run a successful live craps offering, so bubble craps might be a more affordable way to introduce the game to gamblers. I think the complexity (betting options/interface) of bubble craps still scares off many who might be interested in trying the game. That and the lack of a progressive-type jackpot to attract slot players.

    I agree. If they get bonus bets on there, they may attract more players. No question the costs to run it pale in comparison to a live table.
    Not that I collect chips....but what I have. Not even sure why I kept them...but do like the shiny feel on the 4 Queens chip. If I recall, was it OAP that sent you a couple chips or you sent him some? Can't remember. How big is your collection? Now you've peaked my interest in adding some more. I guess I'm in the right city to start.
