I've decided to do a running TR for 2016 for my local casinos. I most only hit one casino locally, so every post may be about Harrah's Rincon Southern California. We have about six local casinos and a few card houses in the area. I prefer Harrahs because it's affiliated with CET. I normally get $100+ in FreePlay every day, plus $100+ in weekly FP. Sundays it's only slot play and I usually am just a table player. So I run through the FP enough to cash out. On some Saturdays there's a giveaway, sometimes in lieu of the FP. I usually only go for a few hours then head home. Tonight I went to Harrah's for about two hours. The plan was to limit myself to $1,000. I say things like that, but then usually use as much as I feel like until I'm "done" gambling. I went a couple weeks ago and was going to limit myself to $1K, then bought in twice more for a total of $3K and finally cashed out a win; but back to tonight. I went up there after work for a bit over an hour. Got there around 5:30. I've started to delve a bit into baccarat. It's oddly addictive. I'm not sure of the math behind it, but our local doesn't take a 5% vig on Banker. Instead it has a Dragon 7 and a 1 Up. The Dragon pays 40:1 and the banker needs to win with a seven and three cards. It seems to hit 2-4 times per eight deck shoe. I walked into the HL room to one of the two baccarat tables. I looked at the charts for each and saw one table had just hit Player three times. So I tossed $600 out there and put $150 on Banker. Banker hit. I thought it might hit again, but changed my bet to $100. Won again. Looking at this chart, I only played 13 hands. But I bought in with $600 and walked away with this. I decided to go get my FP then play some craps. I looked at the two open tables. One seemed boring and the other was on their fourth point. I didn't want to interrupt though so I looked for a quick game of BJ. I played a dozen or so hands, sometimes two at a time and jumping back to one. Left the table with this. Now time for craps. I don't like to come in during a shooter, but sometimes I will if I'm really anxious. This time the player crapped out one roll into me walking up. I usually play across, hardways, and max odds. My starting bet is about $500 and goes up from there. First two shooters were quick to hit point seven out. Then another local that I've played with was up. He did pretty well and got some money back for us. He hit two points, but a bunch of numbers and some hard ways. I usually have at least $25/5 out there on the hardways. I'll go up if the point is an even number. Then I shot, stayed about even. Then the shooter next to me hit a hardways and crapped out. I was going to leave and it was suggested that I stay for one more shooter, so I did. I left craps up about $1,800, so at $2,400 or so. I still had a pink chip in my pocket not shown in that last photo. I was ready to leave, but swung by baccarat one more time. The count was 19-21, and no Dragon 7s had hit. Knowing that one was likely coming soon, I sat down. I went up and down a little while playing a $25 dragon bet. I had a $200 Banker and a Dragon bet. I asked house to open Player first. A 10-3. Then I flip mine, one on top of the other. I see King and 3. Player pulls one, and it's a Queen. This is looking good. I look around, only one other guy has a Dragon bet, and for only $5. I sarcastically say, "Need a four?" Everyone nods. I glance at the card by lifting the corner. I can't see anything. I turn the card and look again. I see it, look at the table, and flip my beautiful four for a 40:1 win. Up another grand and time to cash out. Cashed out for $3,441, up about $2,800 after tipping about $400. I played for about 1 hour and 20 minutes. And for those wondering what craps is like with cards, here are the cards. A player throws one green die and one red. They dice correspond to cards that get flipped. It essentially eliminates dice setting, but the odds are mathematically the same. Successful start to 2016 at my local. I'll be in Vegas on the 17th for a week. Hopefully I can keep the wins rolling.
