Why no more Comps?
So lets talk about the lack of comps at the casinos lately! They have drastically toned down the offerings at the casinos in my local area. I am wondering is it due to the poor economy across the United States. The first thing that is going to take a hit is the entertainment venues such as movies, restaurants, and most definitely casinos. It have noticed it in the past two years that to get free play is like jumping through ten hoops and then they still are not giving away prizes as much as they used too. Before they would give free play $5.00 $10.00 $20.00 dollars if you came to the casino during a certain time. Now you have to earn a certain number of points on your players card before you can be consider for the free play which is from 12:00pm to 1:00pm on a Wednesday when everyone has to work????? (I'm exaggerating) but basically saying that they are not going to give you free chances without paying for them which is basically saying your buying a gift card for yourself?? You better off just using your money and just playing!! At least you don't have to handicapped the amount of money before you can actually earn valued cash to withdraw and take. Anyways I am still waiting on the infamous jackpot that I will receive. Until next time!
The Cost of going to Vegas!
I went to Vegas two times in the past three years. Both times is cost lest than $3000 for me and my wife to go with full round trip tickets and a hotel each time for four nights. First time in 2014 we stayed in Flamingo which was a great experience. The second time we stayed in Planet Hollywood which was not as good as experience but a decent hotel. We chose funjetvacations.com as our means for booking the trip. I am now searching again online and the price to now go to Vegas has jumped tremendously. Why would I pay $1000 dollars to fly to Vegas for one night when I have casinos in my local community in which I could spend the money? Two to three years ago $1000 dollars could get me a round trip ticket and four to five nights in Vegas? Vegas cannot charge these prices when the primary goal for most people is to spend money either on shows or in the casinos. The economy is has changed and I understand that things are increasing price due to inflation but come on.
So the new explosion of Casinos causing addictions.
The state of New York was given a grant in counseling field to deal with the increasing number of cases in gambling addictions. There has been an explosion of casinos in the state of New York the count is now at 22 Casinos in NY (some Racinos) in which five have opened in the last two years. I have been to at least 10 of these casinos. I believe the travel to Las Vegas is becoming less and less with the openings of these casinos in everyone's hometown.
I used to be a club goer but as I have gotten older and I am married I have not wanted to go to clubs with loud music or bars to just drink. The casinos have been a What I know about the environment of casinos is that they are nice alternatives to play games, stay out late( most casinos in NY don't close until 4:00 am or are 24 hours, have a drink, get something to eat, get a room (wink wink) and just an all in one playground for the adults especially since no one under the age of 18 can enter the casinos.
Gambling can be fun if you do it on occasion and spend wisely. I am looking forward to going back to Vegas soon. There is still no place like Las Vegas strip but next time I go to Vegas I would like to see downtown Vegas or Old Vegas to get a different feel.
I' m back everyone.
Hello everyone. I'm back for the year 2017. I was playing all of 2016 but I was not able to post any blogs because it was rough year. I am learning that gambling can be difficult but is still enjoyable. I made a significant amount of money last year about 8000.00 in jackpots but put it all back in due to greed. I am learning that it does cost me money but I enjoy it just the same. I am still using intuition to assist me in picking the right slots and its works have the time, kind of like an unsure bet. I. We have a new casino that Opened in upstate NY called Delago. It is very nice. I visited a couple of weeks ago. I will probably be putting up a video this week on my Youtube Channel. I want to give a brief tour of the casino and maybe get some slot play in also. Keep tuning in to my blog for more adventures and jackpots for 2017. I'm back baby!!
Has anyone played Video Blackjack and do you prefer it to Blackjack at a Table?
I played video blackjack for the first time in Vegas and did really well. We finally have some video blackjack games on the east coast at Saratoga Casino next to NYC but its a drive for me. I like playing Video blackjack cause you can slow the game down and think without having other players and the dealer giving you the evil eye by slowing down the game lmao! I heard that its a 10 per bet but when I went to Vegas it was as low as a 1 dollar bet per hand?! So......... not only does NY have the highest taxes but also the highest minimums??? on electronic table games. I can't win in this state. I will be posting a video on my Youtube channel playing the new video blackjack though for the east coasters! I know you Vegas dwellers probably reading this post like Video blackjack is old news.
