    Fly, I wanted to play that Silver Strike machine at Sam's Town but it had an out of order sign on it. They must of been reserving it for you. I could only find one.

    Hey Now!
    There's only 1 Ty. They took the other one out a couple of years ago. I saw the out of order sign too. I bitched at them about it. Came back and it was fixed!
    Enjoy your solo trip!

    "I notice the Gator Bucks 9/6 $1. DB Progressive is up to 13k, but there's not an open seat. So it's over to the Wally Gator Shorty I go and hang with Jesse..."

    Are these just different spots at The Alligator Bar you're referring to? Or like your personal nicknames for the different bars? I dig this report, just trying to follow along, lol :thumbsup:

    Gator Bucks- a group of progressive machines NEAR the Alligator Bar. Actual name!
    Wally Gator- Alligator Bar
    Crawdad- Crawfish Bar
    Sam's Club- Sam's Town Casino
    Wally World- Walmart
    I will be blogging all weekend, so check back often and remember ....
