    Yesterday's trip:

    Got there about 8AM, I was the only one playing (fine by me). I played for about 30 minutes and was staying pretty close to even, and then a decent roll (maybe 25 rolls) happened by and I was ahead $257. I cashed out and took a little break (sat over some water, meditating).

    When I returned a few people had started playing. I bought in for $500. It was quite the struggle. I'd get down $2-300 and then grind back to down just $100. That happened several times, and the morning rolled on. I don't think I ever got below $100, but I was close several times. I was in that range (down around $400) when this guy to my left started on his heater. He rolled a 33 hand. I took everything down to 32 across after 23 rolls, because that put me ahead about a hundred. I think it was probably a mistake. I know I had 72 on the 8, and I think 40 on the 9, or something like that - probably around 200 total bets. I think I would've racked more than that in 9 more rolls, but who knows? I cashed out for $668, bringing my daily win to $415. It was a little before noon; I was home by 3.

    Thankfully saved me a trip. If there was a software glitch, it's fixed. A few more weeks and real craps arrive!

    You should check it out. I'm about 30 minutes away.

    59 rolls so I guess the RNG likes me. Plus $2194 for the session.

    I think I could have won 5 grand had I not reduced the amount of exposure I had - TWICE.

    Don’t be too sure about, “real craps”. Having “real dice” is no guarantee of anything, especially in an Indian casino. It’s not that you won’t ever win, but you won’t win a lot. I thought the game might have “integrity” problems in Biloxi also, particularly, at the Grand, and at the Isle. The game at Cherokee, I believe has “integrity” problems also, both with the “opaque” dice, and also at the standard tables. I have recorded anomaly’s, that I don’t think can be explained, any other way. Furthermore, the anomaly’s at Cherokee, are the exact same ones I witnessed in Biloxi. I do not know how it would be done, nor even, what all of the possibilities are, but I know, something isn’t right. :cool: Believe what you wish, but I have no reason to deceive anyone.

    Seems strange to me, that such a roll would not fill all of the seats at the table. In fact, I only see two player’s bets on your side of the table, and no bets on the other side. I find it very unusual, not the sort of thing I’ve witnessed at all. :cool: Not even any “flies” standing around watching? Hum? :)

    Well, when will craps start? Real. Dealers including RTW table? Have you asked at HR, say a pit boss? Can't find anything on Google

    They probably won’t go to “real” craps. The electronic table requires no dealers, no chip handling by anybody, no “pit scum”, a few dollars for electricity, and it’s “game-on. Take a good look at bad’s photos. There appears to be patrons on site, but nobody is playing, with the exception of two people? 59 roll, and nobody is even spectating? Does something not seem amiss to you? Roll #58 is a NINE, and on bad’s screen, if you add everything up, his bottom line changed by $14.50, that’s a $10 buy nine? Somehow, I feel like the whole story, has not been told. The whole thing, in my mind, does NOT add-up. What’s your take?

    My take is that you’re a nitpicking troll.

    I heard on hippy radio that one of the lawsuits was dismissed. I haven't asked any official at HR, but one of the locals said it was going to be Nov. 4, for the real tables. Seems like he said they're getting 14 tables - or something like that. The place is HUGE. They could stash them around the place.

    You raise a couple of valid points. I started photographing this at roll 34, and I’ve screenshot the whole sequence from that point. One thing it should show is that this roll started before 9AM on a Saturday. It’s not uncommon for the crowd to be scant at that time of day - just me and a couple other degenerate gamblers.

    I also think that this photo array explains when I “reduced my exposure,” just like I said.

    Does anybody give a rats ass, what FredP’s “take” is. I don’t think so. Nit-picking is what I do. If something is out of place, I look for the reason. If it makes me a “troll” to do so, so be it. :confused:
