Hi all, I'm a newcomer to gambling, and am interested in increasing my long-term gains. I live in Pascagoula, MS and have been practicing VP via training software. Any coasties in here?! I have been going to Island View and Golden Nugget as they both have decent pay tables and comps. The Golden Nugget has PPV fights as well, and 9/5 machines at Michael Patrick's Cafe & Grill. The Island View offers free giveaways, and decent comps on top of 9/6 pay tables at the bar in the back. Let me know if interested in receiving info on the VP software mentioned above. As a newcomer, I have taken advantage of the free buffets, play, and point offers at the gulf coast casinos. I just received my first comp pack from Southern Gaming to help keep me in the green. Any help in increasing my long-term gains would be greatly appreciated. I will try to regularly post updates on my experiences and new offers. FYI: I did get a free buffet from the Hard Rock and the IP as a new member. The comp pack includes comps to Casinos in LA, north MS, Vegas, Indiana, Memphis, and FL. I will get a new pack every 2 months, and will not be using most of these. I am willing to trade for comps to casinos along the MS Gulf Coast i.e. Hard Rock, Palace, Island View, etc.
