    My Trip Report

    I am leaving in eight hours for a quick day-trip to Harrah's Cherokee. For those of us who live in the metro ATL area, we can drive to Cherokee (about 2.75 hours northish) or we can drive/fly to Tunica or Biloxi (about 4-6 hours eastish / southeastish driving) and I have chosen the former -- my fourth overall trip to HC. My travelling companion will be Sir Benjamin (SB) who has accompanied me on seven of my eleven trip to Las Vegas. I wanted to live TR my last trip to Vegas (June/July, 2014) but so far, I have not even written up the post TR. Surely I can do a live day-TR right? We'll see.

    After this introductory post, I plan to make follow-up posts using Tapatalk on my iPhone. Hopefully things will go well and I can do my best TBone / Packer attempt for my June trip to Vegas in nine weeks. Again, we'll see.

    For this trip, I have a bankroll of $500 for some machine play, roulette, and craps. SB is strictly a blackjack player although he will throw a $20 in a Wheel of Fortune machine just to "spin the wheel". I have a $25 FP voucher and a $5 food voucher as well.

    If any VMB'ers happen to be at Cherokee tomorrow, send me a message.

    Keep the hits coming!

    And know the pain of paying for drinks all too well. It's a big motivation for me to gamble in Tunica/Vegas vs. St. Louis.

    Played e-table poker at Cherokee once in 09 with a ridiculous $5 rake. Nice that you don't have to play those tables anymore.

    Nice hit!

    Really bad paytable though (94.18%). I'm guessing any other game you pick would be higher than that one. Double Double Bonus is probably 7/5 (95.71%) and at least 6/5 (94.66%).
