    Oh man, don't place the 5/9. Terrible bets. Better to buy the 4/10 or just play some
    Come bets after you place the 6/8.

    Good to know; the only thing I hate about the Orleans is the crap table has all those crazy bets (repeater, place the hardways)
    For this reason I may just play at Palace Station, or MSS...but I don’t want the comps from those places haha

    Lost yesterday, but for 15 hours at the craps table, it wasn't too bad. Win a little on sports wagering. Had a nice comped dinner at Orleans Asian restaurant, and looked at the bowling alley. 70 lanes!

    Wife hit 4 ducks for her first win.

    Wish I had more to report!

    I disagree, if I have a hot shooter on a roll, I will jump on and place the 5 and 9 with no problem............

    Math is still math, and that's the reason there's casinos in the middle of the desert.

    Unless you have a crystal ball to see the future, there is no situation where making bad bets is a good play. There's no such thing as joining a hot table and it being any more or less likely to stay that way.

    I have no idea why you would even bother gambling. Yes, every bet is geared towards the house. Everyone knows this. There are dozens of threads at VMB where people can argue this. Please don't clutter up my trip report with it.

    Played a quick 4 hour session. Lost on a don't shooters paradise. True to form, the don't players went home broke, too.

    Money management gets everyone if they have no discipline. Me included! The one don't shooter hit four points, and left broke. The dice came to me and I tossed a seven in about four rolls. Still made a chunk off of the roll.

    VP NOW!

    Made a hundred at VP. We will call that the "big win" of the trip so far! LOL!

    This place is a zoo already. If I'd known about this curling shit, I'd have picked another week. Yikes!

    You keep playing Rush at the Orleans at this rate and they better comp you a steak dinner.......lol

    BTW....."The Pot" was crowded last night, $10 tables only.....left up nearly $100.00-not bad for 90 minutes worth of play. I threw 3 points and some nice numbers in between-otherwise it was back and forth the whole time........

    Well, the drawing had a snafu. NO $5000 prize!

    We all get to keep our prize money, and get to have another drawing next week!

    I won $1000!

    Will not be here for it. I don't know if they will have a proxy pick an envelope, or if they will call me "live". I just know I will get at least $250 more dollars!

    The bar in the bowling alley has four VP machines, have had decent luck on them a couple times.

    Went to Sam's Town yesterday, and still nothing to report. Down yesterday, and getting burtied again today.

    No shooter can hold the dice past 10 rolls. Whole trip like this. Unreal.
