    Potawatomi allows 10x odds on craps.

    And if two dice just aren't enough, they have a Sic Bo table...

    Attention RR,

    Couple of updates for Potowatami,

    They added another roulette table over near the baccarat pit side, bringing total tables in casino to 6.

    Wednesday night couldn't get near a roulette table or a craps table. It appears that all roulette is now $10 minimum all the time, not sure if they start higher minimum midweek?

    Only 3 of 6 craps tables open Wednesday night, with lurkers everywhere trying to get a spot. Maybe they should try the deli take a number system? No clue why they wouldn't open another table? Maybe no staff to run it? Two tables were $10 minimum and a $15 table.

    Also new Interblock multi game station next to craps pit. Big Six wheel on one end. Blackjack on other end and roulette in between. Eight consoles for roulette. Minimum $2 total bet. .25 chips for inside bets. This station was full up, and suckers playing Big Six yelling when they hit a 3 to 1 payout. This station is in the same spot as two previous roulette stations that got yanked. This one looks like a cash cow, and will probably be around for awhile.

    High limit room has several $100 slots, that's $100 per line, if that's your bag. They also have a carousel of VP with 9/5 JB $1 machines. Also about 6 $25 BJ tables. This room doesn't get much action, that I've seen.

    Reminds me of the time I accidently wandered into the high roller room.....thought I put a $100 in a quarter VP machine. Hit the play full credits button, and it didn't deal the cards like usual, so I hit the deal button. The reason it didn't automatically deal the cards when I played full credits, is because it was a $25 machine....and my hundred just got 4 credits played......My son in law was with me, and I said WTF, he just laughed, and said that was quick!

    Actually I lucked out and ended up with a pair of face cards......took my hundred out and "sobered" up a bit! :)

    It's amazing to see the difference between Vegas and elsewhere. I can go to RR right now...two craps tables open (sometimes 3)---maybe you'll see 3-4-5 players in total playing.

    When these local casinos are the closest within hours...carte blanche to do as they please and they will still get a packed table.

    Amazing as it compares to Vegas.

    Well, Vegas is Vegas baby! The entertainment and fees and taxes capital of the world! But then, there's Macau. Makes Vegas look like a bargain.

    BTW, no resort fees at Potowatami. Coffee maker and fridge and large tv and very comfortable bed and free wifi.

    Yep. Good to go. The resort fees in Vegas are an absolute abomination.

    Pure, unadulterated rip-off.

    Actually, there are three different Vegas's.

    The high priced strip, pay for the glitter and upgrades.

    Downtown reasonable rooms, free parking, and some decent gambling.

    Off the grid local places, some good promotions, and lower minimums.

    You just have to decide which Vegas you want visit....and accept the pluses and minuses of each choice. Single and by myself makes the choosing easier. When I escorted a fair damsel up to Vegas, the choice was also easy....what ever pleased her! :)

    Say that three times fast with a mouth full of bubblegum.

    Whats the name of that lake in Maryland then means..."you fish on your side I fish on my side no one fishes in the middle" Or something to that effect.
    & no looking that up 12:mad:

    Yep, at my two joints, they pack the tables like Sardines! Usually only one or two tables open! Mondays, & Tuesday's are the best time for Old Top to TRY to "Catch a Gear"! Also, as I'm fleeing to the Cashier's cage, the lines are normally empty on Mondays, & Tuesdays! No waiting in line! Lol

    Can you say: "Take me down please, & "Color Coming In"! Lol

    PATRON at the Craps Table: "Heh, Top, you leaving already? Shit, you've only been here for fifteen minutes!

    Top: "Yep, & that's fifteen minutes too long! You guys would be surprised at how much better You'd fare (Time wise) if you'd just "Send it in hard, & heavy for a few rolls, & color up, & leave!

    I'd rather win or lose QUICKLY than to stand at a stinking table for 2-3 hours ,& come out a loser!

    See you at The Top!

    And within walking distance of the <a href="http://www.harley-davidson.com/content/h-d/en_US/home/museum.html">Harley Davidson Museum</a>

    Thanks for the update, Twelve4s.

    Sounds like the craps tables are somewhat busy for a Wednesday night -- 3 packed tables is pretty good in my book.

    Sounds like the new Interblock multi game terminals don't (yet) offer craps. Perhaps the casino is testing out the other games before deciding on whether to implement electronic (or bubble) craps.

    BTW, I'm all about Bingo when I visit Potawatomi. :D

    Just kidding.

    That's some funny shit, and the shorter version. It gets even funnier,

    Lake Chaubunagungamaug, also known as Webster Lake, is a lake in the town of Webster, Massachusetts, United States. It is located near the Connecticut border and has a surface area of 1,442 acres (5.84 km2). Since 1921, the lake has also been known by a much longer name having 45 letters comprising fourteen syllables: Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg.

    Yea it is a kinda unforgettable name aint it lol!!!
    I learned this during a trip to Mass going to Stratus School for work. Four days of school and never got my hands on the machine the next 5 years.
    It is so dependable that if a board starts acting up in function it will switch over to a spare like board and send a request to Stratus for a replacement board. As a Tech in place to watch the systems you do not know there is a problem till a board shows up in the mail. Ya notify Stratus you are going to open the the doors and swap out the old board during the maintenance window and pull the old board and reinstall the new board. You have 5 minutes to complete this till lights and buzzers start notifying Stratus you are taking too long. Cool air needs to circulate and needs the doors on. This is 1980's technology. Just imagine what Google has today. Everything was redundant. Hell I was a backup tech.
