A few comments I forgot to include for LAWRENCEBURG:

1) HAPPY DRAGON Chinese Food Take-out, in the Kroger plaza, was excellent. Best General Tso's I have had in a long time.

2) HOLLYWOOD had a Ticket Machine that doesn't dispense 100 dollar bills, just up to 20's. It is right near the Video Poker area, so avoid that one if you have a decent pay-out. APPARENTLY there is a small sign on it, but I didn't see it so I ended up taking up a handful of 20's up to the cashier to convert.

Lol#2 I would take that problem any day. I used to go to Lawrenceburg when it was Argosy. A ship with 3 levels. They used to have a lot more BJ tables. I was told they had problems with dealers coming to work is why they put in stadium. I enjoy the celebrity impersonator pit when I used to go.michaek Jackson,rod Stewart,Betty boop,Katy Perry impersonator dealers. Anna Nichole Smith was my favorite but she is no longer there. Rod Stewart good dealer great personality. I think they have live poker downstairs if you like that

They have a few pet “friendly” rooms, but they would be friendlier if they didn’t charge $ 50 per night to bring a small dog. I asked if they would comp my pooch, they said they would have to check and when I get my receipt in my e-mail, I will know what they decided.

And just fyi, NO, no comp for my dog.

IF he could sign-up for a player's club card he could probably get offers to stay for free too ( I would probably have to help him with Vid Poker strategy, he is fun but not too bright ).

Room comps are not too hard to get at Belterra, but when they say ANY DAY OF THE WEEK, they don't really mean it. A Comp'd room on Friday and Saturdays are never available, even if you check multiple different weekends.

Went to Hoosier park in Anderson today...first time in ages.ended up playing 3 card poker and came out $50 ahead and that was after tipping dealers. Progressive there $647,xxx and change for royal flush. Costs $5 shot for the progressive bet. Noticed they have vending machines in corner where self service drinks used to be. Red bull vending machine 5.50 for 12 oz red bull. Chop,candy and pastries way overpriced in other machine. Cigarette machine average $13 pack. Didn't touch a slot machine. They took out some restaurants. They had a pizza restaurant upstairs 5.99 for slice of cheese pizza. Steakhouse opens at 5 they said. Deli shop pricey. 3.99 for hot dog. When you first go in they have an electronic big 6 wheel. I did get a card from Hollywood casino in Lawrenceburg for casino rate hotel room.down at bottom it says 11.99 amenity fee charged per day. They have no pool,spa or fitness center. Guess amenities are coffee and wifi. Probably not even a morning newspaper lol depending on casino rate, probably stay at red roof inn probably cheaper. On card poker,2 community cards are dealt first for progressive then players get their cards. At Anderson,you can play pair plus without 6 card bet. Was told at sister property in Shelbyville you have to play both. They are under Harrah's umbrella

Of course, thank you for the information, but I think that if I won a lot of money in a casino, I wouldn't care which bills to get in 20 or 100

Most people would not care. I have had a few jackpots of $50k and was satisfied with all 100's.

They forgot to refill the ATMs at Harrahs AC one weeekend about a year ago--the only one giving out money was the one in the High Limit area. Pulling a kilobuck in fives was vaguely enraging, but it was better than nothing, which is what all the other ATMs were giving.
