Why Laughlin?

I've never heard of anyone under the age of 70 or with teeth get excited about Laughlin.

It's an awful place. It's dead, depressing, and the limits are low, as is the smoke cloud in each casino. The entire place goes to bed at 9 PM and it wakes at 6 AM.
The highlight is the buffet where you get to watch people suck their teeth.

It's where old dealers go to retire and rust away.

It's purgatory for bad gamblers.



Why Laughlin? He said no casino in Nevada has the machines they do at the Aquarius. He doesn't give a crap about anyone else, their age or their teeth. We were there overnight and that's when he's always played there. I didn't have an Aquarius card, the slot club was closed, I didn't want to chase down a pit boss to try and get one so we used his. They probably hate him even more today. He's always gone there to win and based on the attention that he got, which was negative, when we walked into the area, I'd say he's been a tough pill to swallow. I got 3 handpays, one very large especially for that place, and the displeasure with him was enormous as we left no tips whatsoever.

Keyser not sure if you have ever spent any time in Laughlin but you are a bit off.
I'm 40 my wife is 34 we go to Laughlin at least once a year and get excited about it.
Is the crowd older than LV? Mostly yes but not sure how that is bad. I'm there with my wife so not looking to hook up.
Laughlin has a large RV "Snowbird" community. Two reasons Laughlin is the choice is due to the weather and value.
Table limits are on par with LV. Not quite sure I understand why low limits are bad. But I'm sure if you ask a pit boss nicely to open a $100 min BJ table they will for you.
As to smoke? Depending on the size of the crowd the smoke is no worse than to be expected in other casinos.
Not quite sure if it shuts down at 9pm but if you mean it gets easy to find a open table or open +VP machine yes. But once again that may be considered a good thing.
I am not sure of your age but you have an interesting idea of Senior Citizens. A lot of them can walk, chew and even use the restroom alone.
I would also agree that the dealers you encounter there will have had decades more experience dealing than the average dealer in LV. Still that may be a good thing.
As to a purgatory of bad gamblers? Not sure of your basis. But if you like VP you can still find +100% games. Maybe that is to help the bad gamblers.

If you enjoy the outdoors at all Laughlin is a great place. You have the river, Lake Mohave, Grapevine Canyon, big bend, Oatmen, etc it is a very beautiful area.
I have a bewitched egg that I use to play VP with and I have net over 900k with it.

My my my how you've changed your tune from the guy who wrote PM's to me saying how MKL was the gay guy over on that dealer's forum. I guess it's the boomer issue again.



Isn't it a violation of the rules to post what was said in a private message?

He always goes there to win? Where does he go to lose? And he got a lot of 'attention', just for being there? What did they do, try to trip him? Shoot spit balls at him? Knock the money out of his hand when he tried to put it into the machine? You say he got a lot of negative attention, please give some details. I've been going to casinos since 1976 and have never seen it, this should be very entertaining.

I just wanna know how to get someone to filter 12k through my players card for me.

Also W2G's are nice but wouldn't a win/loss be a more accurate portrait?

Yeah. In other words, he doesn't go there to lose like most people do. You've never seen that attention probably because you never win, and you haven't had your picture in the paper for years. You also likely tip out of intimidation like most AP's end up doing, and he gets remembered for being smart and NOT tipping, again unlike AP's who look for someone to hold their hand while gambling.

You've got a nasty jealous streak. Shoulda gone to bed earlier with the rest of the geezer crowd.

You know, I think the problem here is there's a lot of big talk on this forum, but surprisingly almost every one of you is a low roller. Just because I don't want to chit-chat about $3 BJ table limits and nickle vp machines and the El Cortez and LVA coupon books and how great PF Flyers were back in the fabulous 60's, doesn't mean there should be so much animosity just because I actually play higher limits.

I did post the net win, $3805. I put a LOT more than $12,000 throught that machine last night.

I don't have a card from there. Would it had been better to play without one when one of us has one?

I asked what kind of negative attention did he get, not for you to turn it back on me. C'mon, you made the statement, back it up with some examples. He got lots of negative attention, yet you don't remember the details? The hole you're digging just gets deeper and deeper.
