    Would you like to have super power to win in a game? Which one? Personally, I'd like to have something like X-ray vision to see the opponents' cards.

    I would say in Vegas, that would be a gross misuse of X-Ray vision. :wink2:

    I would like to go back in time and give a copy of Grays Sports Almanac (1950-2000) to myself on my 21st birthday,
    directing my past self to proceed directly to the sports books of Las Vegas! :D

    No, I want my own wits to challenge other people's wits, or in the case of casino games, knowing the odds and how to interact with them.

    It would be way funner just to have invisibility.

    I'd like to be Tiger Woods c. 2000. Or maybe Michael Schumacher when he was at his best. Nolan Ryan. Mikaela Shiffrin. George Lucas. Etc.

    My thinking is, if one has some magical power to rig a gambling outcome, what fun is the contest? I think it would be cool to be amazingly good at something. That seems magical.

    I see what you mean, C0usineddie.
    Or, I guess I should say, I don't... :D

    Then you could build a casino that looks surprisingly like the Plaza, build an eponymous museum to yourself ("Smoking Required") and then we would gripe about you here about things like resort fees, parking fees, short pay VP, and tight comps and such! :)

    Then thank you in advance for your feedback, everyone! :D

    Can't blame me for 6:5, though! That's independent of my timeline!

    In my timeline...
    The Veer towers are the Straight towers.
    The dudes on the strip chase you down asking to receive CDs from you. And they tip!
    Timeshare hawks pay cash for you to not attend their presentations!

    You're welcome!

    Everything I think of concerning magic powers turns out to be perverted.

    I could telepathically rig slot machines.

    You guys can stay winning BJ and Poker hands but you can find me winning the progressive slots.
