Casino still very noisy



I suppose it is, in comparison to some casinos. I didn't notice much difference from my usual off strip casinos in Vegas.

My card kept returning a value of Invalid



Gah, this annoyed me greatly. Nothing wrong with the card, a good number of card readers just failed to register there no matter how many retrys.


In 3 trips there, I'm up $2500, but I hit 4Ace with a kicker on their $10 DDB VP.

Since I (waste) my money mostly on various slots these days and not much else, I was curious whether it would feel like I was really being drained by higher percentage machines (what with not knowing how regulated their business is) but I couldn't tell a whit of difference between the banditry of Vegas slots vs Indian casino. Same games, seemed about the same to me.

Playin 5 & 6 hours all 3 times I had the same streaks of wins and losses.

Simply saying Black Diamonds Casino Cruise out of Port of Palm Beach is the only place to play REAL CRAPS IN SOUTH FLORIDA where you actually get to throw the Dice not that Electronic Organic Craps you find at Seminole, Hard Rock, Isle Casino, etc.
Craps is the most "Jekyll and Hyde" casino game ever invented!

The Victory Casino Ship out of Cape Canaveral (Cocoa Beach) has live craps usually two tables available, sometimes three.

The TradeWinds cruise out of Madeira Beach has a very informative web page and Facebook page but I've not sailed with them. I have heard that their craps game is somewhat low limit and that the odds factor is TWO. This is disappointingly low but it sure beats nothing.

Note: As to slot machine settings on reservations or in the various Indian casinos, there is usually a lack of reporting and the regulatory authorities are often powerless rubber stamps. The one economic authority is that slot machines are designed for Nevada because that is "the market" and any chip or graphics modifications are for other jurisdictions and would cost money. If you look into the second hand slot machine market you'll see that most Indian casinos probably use the exact same RNG chips and stop settings simply because its cheaper and faster for them to do so.

Cocktail service was lousy. Best to order non alcoholic drinks.

Non alcoholic are free and brought fairly quickly. The drinks I had at the Center Bar were fairly stiff but not spectacular. My companion bought and, for some reason, I didn't watch the pour. Oh yeah, the reason was I was watching the two Tramp-Stamped beauties at the next table. Normally, I would watch the pour, but we all have our priorities in life.

For some reason she was more happy at the 15.00 table with its trainee dealer.

I've no idea why 15.00 was supposedly so much more pleasant than 25.00. I had to stack up three five dollar chips instead of one twenty-five dollar chip. Seems so much easier to just plink down one chip! Long walk to the non smoking casino, but a pleasant enough place despite the trainee MiniBacc dealer. MiniBacc was not the only table game there that was lower limits.

My card kept returning a value of Invalid with no suggestions as how I could go somewhere and get valid.

I am now informed that all I would have had to do was go to a casino perimeter kiosk, insert my invalid card, scan my drivers license and the kiosk would then declare my invalid card to be a valid card.

I wish I had done this since they had a 100 dollar rebate program at electronic craps for getting a card. At least they had signs about it. I ended up down several hundred and could have used a rebate.

I have been informed that the rebate program applies to both Electronic Craps as well as Electronic Roulette and that the rebate program is ongoing and expected to continue for the foreseeable future. As to the guy who was playing two positions simultaneously, I didn't check but he was probably using two different cards and playing Doey-Don't for high stakes to obtain some sort of comp advantage. I meant to go over and look at his screens but by this time I had only one more sheet to go before I was three sheets to the wind and I was having enough trouble focusing on my own screen.

Some (not sure if all) were carrying generic drinks, coffee, water, on the tray which is very fast since you get it as soon as you see or hear them.

Yeah, I heard two Tray Talkers saying Coffee, but when I turned around they had skedaddled each time.
By the way, I also heard the call "Chair Massage" but when I turned to see what her boobs, er uh, fingers looked like, she too was gone.

I guess the rule in The Seminole's Hard Rock is react quickly or its too late.

I seemed to sense also that very little time was allotted until dealers/floor persons were offering advice such as go to a six for five table and play for five dollars or play two spots at one time. Perhaps they just wanted to be rid of me.

I also sensed that I had better quit the booze during BlackJack because when it comes to Booze or Basic Strategy, it seems Booze tends to win and Basic Strategy becomes this great big uncertainty puzzle about what happened two hands ago.

Spotlight on Mr. Rude Guy:

Upthread somewhere I mentioned that this rude dude guy was hogging two of the electronic craps stations.

I see TWO possibilities.

The first, he is playing Do/Don't for roughly equal amounts on two different Players Club cards primarily to get generous comps on each of them.

The Second, he is playing Do/Don't for roughly equal amounts but is making an ODDS BET for a phenomenal amount in comparison to the money he actually has a risk.

Maybe I should have asked the creep or peered over his shoulder but it was at the time only a fleeting thought about his being such a hog.
