We drove to Vegas early Thursday morning and decided to check out the Red Rock casino. It is a classy place but the Video Poker payout schedules didnâ€™t look too enticing to me. The Race and Sports book is very nice. After about an hour of walking around the place, we thought we would go to Arizona Charlieâ€™s and sign up for their Players card offer of, if you lose $100 they will give it back to you. It worked well for my wife and our friend and they both got their hundred back, but, I was having a hard time losing mine. As a matter of fact, I was up about four hundred and went to the five play, quarter VP machine and after about five minutes, I got a flush dealt to me that was also four cards to a royal and decided to go for it and this is what I got: The grand total when I cashed out was $2,400. Had to do an IRS W-2G for $2,012.50. Thank you, Arizona Charlieâ€™s. Checked into the El Cortez for a one night stay and walked up to the Plaza to see my long time friend Tim at the Keno Bar. They have put new VP machines at the bar and the payout schedules are very good. The Plaza has started some new promotions and I was told that things would be getting better around there in the near future. Friday: The wife was entered into an Invitational Slot Tournament that came with three free nights at the Main Street Station. She had a good first session but a bad second session and ended up 30th. They paid her $50 for that. Everyone got money; even last place got $25. MSS notes: They now have FREE wireless. It is located near the Players Club desk. No race and sports book. Buffet was very good as usual. Some good VP scattered around the casino. Two single deck BJ games that pay 6/5. Cocktail service was very good. Craps is 20X odds with two tables at $5 minimum. Came home a happy camper.
