    Hello everyone-

    My name is Jason and I am from Houston, TX. I have been coming to vegas 3-4 times per year for the past 10 years, including for the Super Bowl the last few years - I will be there next week again. I the only table game I typically play is Blackjack, but lately I have been playing mostly BarTop video poker, and Ultimate X Video poker (with a penchant for Double Double Bonus). Though I have historically avoided slots, right now I am really into the Wizard of Oz Haunted Forest machine.

    My comped drink of choice is Goose and Cranberry, but I also am quite fond of the the Category 5 Hurricanes from Fat Tuesday.

    I am very glad to have found this message board and I look forward to sharing tips and stories with many of you.

    Welcome, neighbor - we live a suburb near NASA. Many of us here on the board from the Houston area.
    My new favorite slot is Wizard of Oz - The Road to Emerald City. :)

    Hi Kelly - thanks!

    MightyDude - you are very close to both my home and work. Looks like you are going next weekend too? We are staying at Ballys and going to the Hard Rock Big Game Party - what about you?
