Yep. I found this article about the "de-Greekifying", as they call it, of Greektown.

There used to be a cool, giant mural above the large escalators in the casino. That's been gone for years too.

The name change to "Jack" is supposed to be happening soon as well.

All day on Mondays and Fridays in June at Greektown, the Blazing 7's progressives are having the jackpot boosted by $500 on quarter machines and $1500 on dollar ones. That means they start at $750.00 and $2500.00 respectively.

Seeding the jackpot by that much sounds like a good play for the gambler.

Edit: Found out tonight that it's only one time per machine. Once it hits, the JP resets to the original amount ($250, $1000). Not as good as advertised. Need to play them early.

Yeah it got chilly. Feels good. Just got home and opened windows.

About a 15 minute walk away. Take Monroe to Woodward, swing around Campus Martius to Mich. Ave then go up to Third and make a left.
