    Trips to Las Vegas:
    So I'm not fortunate enough to be going to Vegas for the Fight/Derby weekend, but several of us go out to the track for the Derby annually. This year we decided instead of going to the local track, we will go a couple hours and hit Presque Isle. Any of you been? What i sthe action like? I am a craps player, what is the dice action like? Do they have any of the long shot bets, like All Small, All Tall, All or the Fire bet or anything similar? How are the crews? Is the horse betting right there with the table gaming or are they different buildings?

    Any info or experiences you can share would be appreciated. Thanks
    I need one more trip to up my frequent flier level

    Trips to Las Vegas:
    I've actually been there as I was driving though Pennsylvania on a Saturday afternoon. Its not awful, the casino is not huge but it has a decent number of tables. It even has a little "high limit room" which wasn't open at the time I was there. From what I could gather the minimums there were $25.

    I peeked at the craps table but didn't play, its 3,4,5 and I think they have a fire bet, but don't quote me on that info.

    Players all over the casino look like they come from Erie with their pension cheques and spend all day there. There was the odd person under 60.

    Blackjack was $5/$10 min 8 deck H17 DAS DOA late surrender. I bought in for $100 to kill a little time for kicks. They have this ridiculous side bet that pays if the dealer's up card is within a certain range of your two cards. It was confusing as all hell and slowed the game to a crawl as the dealers had to check their card, then the player's cards, then count on their fingers, then pay the bet.

    The dealers were on average the slowest dealers in the entire world. The first shoe took maybe a half hour. The second shoe I played took about an hour with all the side bet nonsense and just agonizingly slow dealing. If I didn't need a little break I would have just left. The players there were not very social, not the type of place where you can have a drink and yuk it up. If I was passing through again, I wouldn't stop.

    Oh and the video poker was bad, which is disappointing for a small house.
