    Slight change of plans. I was going to find somewhere to watch the Pens game at Margaritaville. But, they were already down 3-0. So instead I headed to Harrah’s to check it out and watch a couple of races. My first gambling ever was my parents letting me pick which horses to bet on at an off track betting place. It’s such a nice day to be outside with a beer.

    Wow... Farmville is paying you real well! Good going!

    Just noticed you were betting $15 per spin at Sam's Town ($0.05 * 300) :eek: that's got to be earning you some pretty good comp recognition.

    It might have if I kept it up. But I only played through $125 before I hit it big and ran. Won 8 free games on like my second $15 spin.

    I meant to go to Ralph and Kacoos, but somehow ended up back here.

    Watched some hockey (really, Pens, really?), took a nap, lost $100 playing VP. Now taking a brewery break at Red River Brewing.

    Dinner at Crawdaddy’s. Fried shrimp and “swamp water”. Yes, I realize I’ve eaten a lot of fried shrimp this weekend. No, I don’t care.

    In the room. Gambling is done for the night - variance has been super kind to me this trip despite generally terrible paytables. Finished tonight up $200 on VP at Margaritaville on ~ $5,000 coin in. Several Royal Flushes on STP 100 hand penny VP, including one on 3x.

    Nice report and nice bit of luck you are having. Looks like I might have to plan another trip to Bossier City.

    As someone who has visited Bossier City twice a year since 2014 the only thing it has in common with Las Vegas is the slot machines and tables. Ar Eliza mentioned all the casinos are much smaller than Vegas since all are on boats with the exception of Margaritaville which is on a barge and looks most like a Vegas casino. The one thing I notice is how nice everyone working in the casinos are from security to the slot attendants. If you like seafood the food choices in town are great. The only reason we don’t visit more often is it is a 7 hour drive from where I live.
