    Hello Everyone...

    The name's Jason and I live in the panhandle of Texas. I am 30 years old and have made 12 trips to Vegas total... 4 in the last year.

    I guess you could say that I am an addict... and my addiction is currently fueled by generous comps from Boyd properties... namely Sams Town... and airfare deals through Southwest Airlines that have made my last 3 trips very profitable, (and hard for my wife to say no to).

    I am primarily a craps player, with occasional ventures to the VP bar top and roulette wheel whenever i need to sit down for a bit. I spend much of my free time pouring over gambling strategy, listening to Five Hundy By Midnight, lurking on this message board, and trying to discover new ways to make the next trip more fun and profitable.

    Main Street Station has become one of my favorite places to play, and I owe this community much thanks for turning me on to one of the friendliest, most comfortable casino experiences that I have had thus far. In January, I will be staying at MSS for the first time, and I have changed my primary Boyd property from Sams Town to MSS because I love it so much. I am hoping that my offers stay close to the same as they have been... I am still a Ruby player and receive 5 nights comped and gold card at Sams.

    Over time I hope to contribute much to this board, my areas of experience are darkside craps grinding, hole in the wall restaurants off strip, low roller comps, and various other avenues. I am interested in learning more about Boyd table game theo, comps at Downtown Boyd properties vs. Sams, Gold Coast, and Orleans. I would like dining recommendations while staying Downtown, and am interested in meeting other like minded individuals who are all about free drinks, great dining experiences, grinding a profit while gambling, and seeking out a non-strip centered Vegas Experience.

    To give you a sense of some of the places i have tried and enjoyed, (and can review if you are interested) here is a small list:

    Frankie's Tiki Hut
    Sushi Twister
    Billy Bob's Steakhouse
    Joe's Stone Crab
    Noodle Exchange
    Pub at Monte Carlo
    Double Down Saloon

    Thanks for having me, and I am looking forward to more good times.

    Cheers!

    Welcome to the board Jason!! Glad you've joined us. Hope you have another really great trip.

    We are strip people and get bored downtown as a rule but MSS is our favorite casino there....agree - they are all so nice and helpful.

    Jason- hopefully we can meet up someday and play some dark side craps. Slamming beers and playing the dark side are a few of my favorite things.

    I love Sushi Twister. It's a must if I'm on that side of town.
