    My Trip Report

    I know I'm suppose to go to Lake Tahoe in 3 days but with being on the board and all this Craps and BJ and Baccarat talk I had to get some gambling out of my system.

    Besides I have a quick change of Plans to Lake Tahoe. My Boss is going to take the Jet to San Fran so instead of flying AA i'm going to take the Hawker. But that is another trip report


    Margaritiville is going to do a BMW drawing tonight for VIP's so why not. I already have two BMW's why not three. OK its just an excuse to go gamble.

    Plus Shreveport Bossier City is the only place I know now that has 100X odds on Craps.

    I usually take the SL63 but since it is a BMW give away I'll take the M6.

    So going to leave in a little. Hit the Horseshoe and then Margaritaville for the car drawing. Don't think I'll have time to visit Elderado or Sam's town there and I never been to Diamond Jacks and have not been to BoomTown in years.

    Wish me luck.

    Good luck! As far as I know though, I think all horseshoes owned by cet offer 100x odds on craps. Do you actually play at 100x odds? :confused2:

    I've only been to the Horseshoe in Bossier City and the one in Harmmond IN. I didn't play craps there as they offered 200-200,000 limits in Baccarat. I didn't bet 200k but it was nice to know i could.
    I was able to bet more there than I can in Vegas.



    Yes I do play 100X odds or at least 50X

    Thanks and will give update when I'm there.

    also doesn't like to play 345X odds on craps because he can play 100X odd in Shreveport. and he likes to take the "Hawker", private plane owned by his boss. I have seen these two facts come up about every post of his. He wants all of the VMBers to know these things so he makes sure to point them out !!!

    Good luck to you. I live in Bossier City and have not visited Margaritaville siince it opened. I like hearing about the BMW drawing though. Sounds like they have good taste. I have a new M6 in my garage so I would want the money instead of the car. Hope you win it. I am off to Las Vegas Monday. Looking forward to the higher speed limits in West Texas.

    Thanks RiddickBull

    I've always said it is not a win til you take it home. I'm happy to report that thanks to some change in my play from PACKER and reading some of the play of others on this board I was able to turn a 5k to 6k loss trip to a $8k Win.

    Some people have stated they don't like my post. If you like please do not look at my post. If that is not enough please tell the owners of this board or the Admin or MODS and have them decided if I should be kicked out.


    I'm on this board to have fun and share information with others. I have been given some great advise and have been help with answering several questions.

    So I would like to thank those that have answered my questions and post.

    The trip to Shreveport was a long drive. I got to try some new betting bets and like I said a 5k to 6k lost if I played my old way turned into a 8k win.

    I hope this keeps up when I go to Lake Tahoe and Vegas.


    I did not win the car but I did take home some Cash.

    :)

    Thanks RedRiver Rose. My M6 is a few years old I've had it a while but its still a nice car. If I did win I was going to give it to my little brother. I even called and told him that. Oh there was a Cash Options if you did not want the car.

    There was less than 150 people there for the drawing and only One ticket per person so I had a 1 in 150 chance of winning. Not too bad of odds, but I didn't win the car nor the 4 other $500 in free play.

    Good luck in VEGAS. Are you Driving to VEGAS?

    Nice report, enjoyed hearing about your experience trying the don't for first time, sounds like it was a successful way to follow the tables momentum for you to book a win during what would traditionally be a "cold" run at the table.

    I guess the nice thing about Texas is you can get good use out of nice cars. Every time I think about buying a decent car I remember I drive about 2,000 miles total per year so it would be a waste. I'd probably take the cash option and buy a Hyundai full of hookers & blow.

    I'll be swinging thru the Ratchet City, I mean shreveport, this week. Diamond Jacks isn't worth your time. It's probably easy to drum up decent comps as a mid roller but why worry about that? Horseshoe and Margaritaville are so much nicer than DJ. I might be switching my play over the SAMs Town from Horseshoe though. I don't play near as heavy as I do in Vegas as my primary reason to vist Shreveport is to see family. And I figure SAMs Town might comp me better for small play.
