GWAE would you like me to beat up Axel for you?

You're just looking for an excuse to be all up on me.

Yeah I thought the meetup was a lot of fun and a really good turnout this year. Absolutely want to continue thanking all of those that contributed to dinner and to Axel/Wiz for the suite and beverages/snacks!

...next year maybe Axel doesn't do the trivia, or lightens up a bit to let some people score more than 4-5 =D. I got 3, I'm pretty happy with that lol. There were others around giving up around question 8-9 =P.
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Probably best just to hand out the questions like a test. Public environments are too noisy to verbally ask questions. It just took to long for the questions to be asked 5 or so times each. I'm pretty sure that's why people said screw it and stopped answering.

I still think the MGM was built on the site of the Marina casino.

I was confused on the question of the first video slot machine. I assumed video reels as I would have got it if the question said video poker. Fortune 1 was a video poker machine that Si Redd came up with. The company eventually became IGT.

Got back to MN late last night. My wife and I had so much fun seeing everybody. Thanks to everyone who contributed to the event! Only 11 to 13 months until the next Spring Fling!

That's the *current* MGM Grand. Didn't the question ask about the *original* MGM grand, which is now Bally's?

In all seriousness, it was nice seeing everyone again, I always have a good time. Didn't expect anyone to pay for the dinner either so a big thank you to all who contributed, I believe it was darkoz, nathan, wiz, bbb, and thatdonguy? Also thank you to the wiz and I believe axel also who arranged the suite and provided the beverages and food? Everything went well and I think everyone enjoyed themselves so thank you again.
Any private business open to the PUBLIC (ie. droned out casinos) cannot have a criminal trespass enforced against an individual without GOOD CAUSE (Disruptive or Disorderly conduct). You will never go to prison for being thrown out of a casino for legal advantage play and then returning because it's simply unconstitutional 'as applied' to the individual. 'As applied' constitutional issues must FIRST be raised in DISTRICT COURT (trial court) to have it thrown out. You CANNOT raise it on APPEAL This is the best kept secret in the world of casinos not just in Vegas but everywhere in the country. Thank me later.

I think the NEW MGM was. The original MGM was on LV Blvd and Flamingo (south-east corner).

I'm trying to find an image of this game. Personally, I thought Jackpot Party was the first, but I guess was proven wrong.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.
