    Odds say if he loses one shoe it will be the left... but we all know how odds work

    Good luck! Following along

    I thought that game died years ago. I guess videopoker.com missed this machine. It's quite confusing too imo.

    Let me get this right. Single line quarter Bonus on the Superstar machines in particular are 7/5 too now? But they still have 9/6 DDB, and 25/15/9/4/4/3 Deuces?

    I would be a bit surprised if they just lowered Bonus only, but they might have.

    We debated going there but there is an Irish pub in Boston every few blocks, so we went to the sushi place around the Orleans, sushi 21. I see it's still there! A fond memory.
     
    Optimistic, might make Identity Gold?

    Bonus on the superstar is still 8/5, DDB is 9/6 and deuces is as above, all at quarters

    Wanted to mention yesterday was the first Young at Heart day, no cash drawings but they do the pick a color thing where you have a one in six chance to win a share of $2500 in free play, I picked yellow which is what they drew and that got me $48 in free play

    Ok at airport, got Pete to his gate, now chilling at mine. Lyft driver to airport said a few months ago he got a ride to pick up a Carlos at a 7-11 near the strip, it was Carlos Santana, he had gone to get some heartburn stuff

    OK home now, let me see what I can add.
    Flight from DFW to Vegas Sunday was full, flight home had maybe 15-20 empty seats.
    All Lyft wait times were about ten minutes and all drivers said they are as busy as they wanna be, not enough drivers currently.
    No daily housekeeping at The Orleans, fine by me as I do not need my bed made daily
    Buffet and movie theater not open yet, and keno is not 24 hours, they close something like 10 P.M.- 8 A.M.
    Never had a wait at the Copper Whisk which was nice.
    Last night was trivia night at McMullens, we were too late to play but it was fun trying to answer the questions for the later rounds
    Parking lots at Orleans not too crowded, think a lot of locals do not feel safe going to casinos yet.
    The guy who hit the $8,000 royal at South Point showed me a similar pick from two weeks earlier, he said he has been on a sun run like never before

    Nice! Too bad he wasn't playing Double Double Aces and Faces though!

    The only time I got back to back quads was at McCarran. :eek:

    Nice report once again! Glad you and Pete had a good time! And thanks for double checking the superstar bartops. I fixed it in my bartop sticky.
