Assuming there's a season, are you seeing any bargains for the Superbowl odds this year?

Now that casinos are confirming that they can do things like triple zero roulette, and gamblers will still play, why do they offer blackjack games that can be beaten in the first place?

Question for Heather,

Whoa! throwing some hate Boo Boo Bear's way? Must be a story there ... he looks like a mean boss you had once maybe?

assuming you are eating more at home now, are you doing some of the cooking now?

If we’re talking about food, I’ll resubmit my question that didn’t get answered:

If you had to choose one restaurant in Las Vegas to bring out-of-town guests (and they’re not picky about the kind of food, dietary restrictions, classiness, etc) which one would it be?

Which now defunct Vegas attractions or venues do you wish you had checked out while you still had the chance?

You've probably made the drive between Vegas and LA more than 100 times. What is the fastest speed you've ever hit while racing across the big empty?

I am afraid something came up and I can't do the live stream tomorrow. The next one is scheduled for next Thursday at the usual time.

My apologies for the late notice.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

When playing table games, will I be rated the same playing by myself as I would playing with a full table?
