    Found uncashed check I totally forgot about. It's for $590. Instead of just adding it to my bankroll for August trip I'm looking to play it real aggressively. Should I go $10 slots, craps table or $50 BJ. Or maybe the smart play would be to add it to trip bankroll, since daily envelope system would be $1200 per day. Hopefully it would last me till lunch

    Sweet find! I would just add it to the August BR so I would have more gambling flexibility.

    My vote would be for $50 blackjack. This is strictly because out of the 3, blackjack has the lower house edge. Just look for good rules.

    I recommend Craps and some "smart" play there to keep the house edge down.

    Slots all the way. Use your other BR for 'smart' play.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking. I'm already a $25 table BJ player and $10 craps. My slot play is $1-$5 machines. So this "play $$$" will be for $10 machine.

    Go bigger or more volatile. $25 or $100 on a reel machine or 5 - 20 lines a spin on a volatile $1 machine like Davinci or Buffalo or Cleo II

    Or go double or nothing, put it all on Banker on a single hand of bacc.

    Hmmm, tough call. If you are looking to see if you can hit something big, I'd say slots or the higher HA bets in craps.

    I would say some high-volatility slots, big denomination. If not, I would just add it to your total bankroll. IMHO if you have some money that you don't mind burning to swing for the fences I would really swing for the fences rather than just doubling your average bet at Blackjack.

    Tough call.
    Lets try something different.
    Since you seem to partake in all 3, why not split it up to add some extra fun to each.
    Play your Craps and make a $100 hardway bet.
    Play your BJ and make a $100 single bet.
    With the rest, $390, put it in the $10 slot machine.

    $50 BJ. I upped my betting to $50-$100 the last few trips and have done very well. I've got a stop/loss and a winning amount that I cash out when I hit it.

    What ever you choose, it will be fun. I am sure I would enjoy that opportunity.

    I'd specifically advise against $50 BJ. You don't even have 12 units. That can be wiped out in a hurry.

    If you really want to have some fun and play aggressive, I'd try to reverse Martingale on free bet blackjack. Suppose you're playing quarters... six wins in a row would take you to $1,600 (25 to 50, 50 to 100, 100 to 200, 200 to 400, 400 to 800, 800 to 1600). Plus even more if you hit blackjack or a profitable double/split along the way. And even if you lose, you'll only be out your original $25 of your own money.

    $600/25=24
    I would go to the crap table... bet $25 on the hard-8 (or hard-6). Make sure it's always working. When it hits, parlay it. If the parlay hits, take all but $25 down. A nice win of $2500.
    You'll have 24 opportunities to hit the first one...and if they win about 10% of the time, math says you'll hit 2 or 3 of them.
    Out the 2 or 3 wins, you'll need some real luck to hit the parlay-win... but if you do, take it down!
    Keep playing out any of the original $600, but protect the $2500 win!

    Take the $2500 to a $100 blackjack table (find a two-deck, S17 3:2 DAS game). Turn your $2500 into either $4000 or $500 (if you lose).
    Take what you want from that & go play your high-dollar slots.
     
    Finally have the room booked! Look for me Feb 21-23
