    Hey Vegas fans,

    I'm sure all of you have gambled at the roulette or blackjack tables at least once! I was wondering if you have had some funny, cool or special stories, dealers told you about. Being a dealer I'm sure they have seen some weird stuff on the gaming floor or nostalgic stories back in the old days.

    I visited Las Vegas in 2012 and I was playing poker at The Bellagio, me and the table had a great tabletalk about the old poker legends and there was this pokerdealer who was dealing the cards at our table who told us that she had dealt Stu Ungar back in 1998. As I'm a big pokerfan I was quite flabbergasted because Stu Ungar was the best poker player ever at that time (many people say). I found this very special and was excited to tell this back at home.

    Do you have any funny, cool, special or nostalgic Las Vegas dealer stories? Please share your story in this topic! :beer:


    [Video Snack] - Oh by the way: My parents shot a Super 8 video in Las Vegas in 1984 which I've put online on YouTube, hope you like it!

    Thanks a lot...your 'parents'? Hell, I probably played at some the same tables with them back in 84... Stardust, Westward Ho, Riv, Flamingo, Dunes...used to play at all of 'em.
    Those were good days (from a gambler's perspective).
    The corporate/legitimate casino owners were all still "new", so they were all still doing things the "mob way" for the most part...and it was beautiful!
     
    Seems like forever from now, but the flights are booked, so it counts!

    If you've ever played craps at Sam's Town and met Larry the craps dealer, his hair IS the story. Looks like the Heat Miser from that old Christmas special. Awesome guy with a great dry sense of humor.

    Also, I'll have a good one if Mike is still dealing craps at Golden Gate when I go back in January. Last January he told me for an hour how Peyton Manning and the Broncos in the Super Bowl, minus 1.5 points, was the easiest money you could EVER make.

    No idea. He's probably in his late 50's or early 60's now. The first time we saw him he had it spiked up and last year it was like he was at for an hour with a hair dryer and a can of Aquanet - complete blow out. Totally hilarious and totally awesome.
