Combining a mini-trip report to the Beau Rivage over the 4thof July and a few trips to Harrah's in New Orleans.... received a 3 night comp to BR in Biloxi that included 2 free show tickets...purchased an additional 2 tickets and took the family. After the show, took the kids to the arcade for a while, then tucked them and wife in bed - time to go gamble a bit. The Beau was packed being a holiday weekend so I sat at an empty single deck BJ table. I have never been a fan of single deck, but it was one of the only available spots to play. Played 11 decks with an average win per deck of $100 then finally lost on the 12th deck...colored up with a $1000 profit. Next day was lazy by the pool. Did a little gambling that night...tried my luck at the same single deck...nice little profit of $450. Weather was starting to get bad so we decided to head home after the second night. Good, fast and profitable trip....back home to NOLA. Although I live about 5 miles from Harrah's in New Orleans, I had not been there in quite some time. I decided to go there two weeks ago on a Saturday morning....when I used to frequent Harrah's, I only had decent luck in the morning. Sat at a $25 double deck, played for 34 minutes and quickly colored up for a $700 profit. Went home to take the kids to birthday party....could not stand prosperity so I decided to go back to the same location on Sunday. I sat at the same double deck blackjack table, bought in for $1000, and in about 25 minutes colored up for $3000 for a nice $2000 profit. I decided to go back to Harrahs this morning and behold my favorite double deck blackjack table was not open yet. So I went and played single deck blackjack and lost $500 in about 15 minutes. I was hoping that the $25 DD blackjack table was open but it was not... So I decided to up the ante and went to a $100 double deck blackjack table with one other person playing. The player told me that the cards have been awful. I bought in for $1500 and within six decks I had doubled my money plus some and colored up for $4600. Thanks Harrah's maybe I will stay away for a while and come back and see you in a few months.
