This may seem like a shameless plug. Well, it is, but only a little.

Many of you may know some or most of these things:
I created a side bet called Poker For Roulette and a new table game called Pick A Card.

Years ago I created a series of Vegas maps which feature the logos of the resorts and points of interest. For a while, these were the official WoV maps.

An Introduction to Poker in a Casino Poker Room is a WoV article based upon a thread I started.

All are available on my own website, http://www.DaveMillerGaming.com

There's been some updates which most of you are unaware:

I've added or updated logos as necessary on the maps, and added the F1 race course.

Because of the empty space, I added a bunch of commentary to the Primm / I15 map, describing the area, Seven Magic Mountains, the Lottery Store, and how the ride is nice and relaxing - except when it's not.

There's also a page about my Poker Dealer experience where you'll find my resume, as well as a PDF of an updated version of that Intro article.

On the History page of both of the game websites are links to WoV discussions about the game. Please use those if you have comments about them.

If you have comments about other parts of the site, let me know here. Also, I'm not a Vegas local, so if you see that I'm using an old logo on my maps, let me know.

Thanks!

I made a minor update to my maps page. It was pointed out that it didn稚 say to click on the thumbnail. The person who pointed it out said the maps were kinda hard to read - he was looking at the thumbnail! 😵‍💫

He also said that he didn稚 see the F1 course I mentioned - even though he kinda knew where it was. That痴 when I realized he was looking at the thumbnail. I forgot to update that! LOL 🤪

Both have been fixed. 😁

Man, if someone can't figure out to click the thumbnail, are written instructions really gonna help them?

I've been a long-time admirer of your maps, as you know.

You would probably want me to tell you that "gauge" is not spelled that way on the map.

Click it? Yeah, I know. You can稚 fix stupid, but that was what happened.

Yeah, I like your maps too. That痴 why I gave you a link on that page.

Typo? Son of a mother! Sigh. I fixed it.

Thanks.

I made two minor updates to my strip map.

When I added the F1 course, it correctly ran along Harmon Ave, even though I didn't have Harmon on the map. I had originally thought that it wasn't a major enough road.

Today I realized that the logo for Virgin Hotel was on Tropicana. I moved it to the corner of Harmon and Paradise, where it belongs - which also made it make sense that I should add Harmon.

Anybody see any other errors? What about Logos? Since I'm not a local, I don't always know when logos change.

Social media keeps me up-to-date on name changes and openings/closings. I'll be adding Fountainebleu and Durango Casinos soon...

I have the same problem with not being local any more. The casinos don't send me press releases when something changes. Heck, even when I write to them and ask questions, they never write back. Fortunately I've clicked enough stories about Vegas in Google News that when there's an opening or closing, it shows up in my feed. I also just check the "Vegas" topic in Google News every once in a while. That, and following Vital Vegas on Twitter.

My list of openings and closings might be of use to you.

I'll leave mapping Formula 1 up to you, not at least until I have a lot more time.

The Pioneer Saloon in Goodsprings fits in nicely with a Primm/Magic mountains trip. Every time I drive through Goodsprings, I wonder what ones does to end up there.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

Soon is today. I updated the Strip and Valley maps to include these two new casinos. http://davemillergaming.com/maps.html

Reminder: Because they only show main roads, and the logos of casinos and other major points of interest, they can be more useful than other maps, particularly for tourists.


And in a couple days I'll be making an announcement about a minor change to my Pick A Card game. A minor change, but a big improvement. Stay tuned...

Thanks for the reminder! I just updated my map too.

I'm still amazed that you're able to get all the logos to fit. I'm using just the name of the casino and I have a hard time cramming them in. I just added the "new" O'Sheas (which relocated a solid decade ago), and that was a challenge.

If you don't know how to get your map to automatically size to the screen size (whether it's mobile or desktop), I can share the code, if that's something you'd want to do.

Ok. It痴 been a couple days. Here it is:

I've developed a simpler jackpot side bet for my Pick A Card game.

Both the original and new jackpots get triggered when the three cards selected is either a straight flush or three of a kind. But instead of locking up the bets awaiting a new three card hand, in the new version, a fourth card is selected. If the resulting 4 card hand hand is a 4 card straight flush or is four of a kind, Jackpot! If a 3 card straight flush becomes a straight or a flush, or if the fourth card added to the three of a kind is the last suit, then it pays a partial jackpot.

That's it. Easier to hit and easier to deal.

Get more details and the math for both versions on my website, http://www.DaveMillerGaming.com

More changes to my Vegas maps.

I put an X thru the Trop logo, and maybe a little early, the Mirage logo too.

But the big news is, every logo on all 4 maps now links to their website! (Except the X壇 logos.)

Nice update! And this reminded me to update my own map. New feature: choose your hotel, and it lists up on the map.
