    She'll teach you AP bingo but you have to sign on for at least 6 lessons, she'll even pick you up at the airport for free I noticed one of the dice coaches is now charging a nominal fee for airport pickup


    Meskwaki put in a one player Interblock dice game. The whole machine is 3 seats the other 2 are a Blackjack and a Roulette. There's the standard screen only a little smaller and a tube in front of you approx 8" wide and 18" tall with two dice and a vibrating table.

    The regular table was empty most of the night but I don't like that table and one dealer I don't like so the bubble is a good second choice for me.

    I started out in the hole but was able to grind it back. $300 was what the wife bought into Bingo for and since I hadn't received any texts from her I knew she hadn't hit anything.

    When I got to $300 ahead it was close to go home time so I cashed out and went in just in time to see her hit the progressive on the last bingo game of the night. It was a coverall game that you had to hit in 52 numbers or less to win the progressive. Nobody had hit it for 3 months since it resets at $7000 and 48 numbers called. They raise it $250 per week and 1 number called every thousand.

    It's the biggest win she's ever had, she's pretty happy right now. Soon as she got her money we headed for the door, much to their dismay

    Thank you.

    Honestly, there is all kinds of hostility and flaming that gets posted on this board, so I just take it as par for the course. I don't spend enough time on here for it to bother me...so I just try to roll with the flow

    Well it’s basically about 6 posters that live in their car, old age home, Wisconsin cheese factory, alias to insult a poster on another site, new age religion, and who knows why VonSchmuck is the way he is. None of them have any value. All are about themselves, their ego. All have been put on ignore personally. Some here waste their time engaging them. Me, life’s too short to deal with trolls.

    as long as people respect the opinion of others
    and are honest everything works out.

    You play just like I do, I go to the table and bet
    on whoever is shooting and normally really quick
    2-3 guys go on good rolls and I get ahead
    and leave.

    That is the way the game should be played.
    GOOD JOB

    It's posted in the 2nd last post on the previous page.

    Trust is a rather strange beast. Trustworthy people trust everyone, untrustworthy people trust no one...say a lot about ourselves

    The Borgata confirmed the roll....No one admitted to being there at Stanley Fujitakes epic roll in Vegas either.

    What's your point?

    That no other player was interviewed after these players had a long roll?

    The casino confirms the roll length...not other players.

    Why would anyone want to interview the other players regardless?

    The reality is the lady may not of gave a rats ass. That roll has much more value to the casino for the advertising than it does to the person who did it.

    His point is, that casinos might lie, if they thought they might benefit from it.
    I for one, never bought in to the MIT blackjack team story. Has a real phony ring to it. :cool:

    This is Barney

    The LID, the Captain, and the UnderCoverDicesThug personages were at the table when the old lady personage made the biggest roll on the Atlantic City table of craps.

    Maybe the LID can comment when he and the Eustace return from casinos roadtrip.

    Let me add that the Captain made some serious monies on her toss after qualifying her with his 5 counts. The LID and the UCDT only bet on certified DIs so they just watched with their thumbs up asses.

    2 people winning a progressive slot hit....I could understand the benefit of talking it up.

    Grandma rolling the dice 154 times on an odd Thursday is a benefit?

    To the point that you are going to make up the story?

    A stretch...to put it mildly.

    Like Sgt. Schultz, I know nnnnothing about the roll other than what I have read.

    The roll happened, people were playing. The box stated something to the effect that he was happy no one at the table knew what the fuck they were doing in terms of maximizing bet size, because they lost only a couple hundred K.

    Just think ee, if you & I were there, they would have either lost millions or shut the table down.

    Wrong! Best (smallest house edge) wagers are:

    (1 and 2) No vig buys on 4 and 10 = zero house edge

    (3) Field paying 3x wager on 2 and 12 = zero house edge

    (4,5,6 and 7) "Free" odds, behind any P, DP, C or DC = zero house edge BUT, MUST be coupled to wager on which the house does have an edge of either 1.36% or 1.41%.

    (8 and 9) Buy 4 and Buy 10 for $35, vig on win only = 0.952% house edge

    (10 and 11) Buy 5 and Buy 9 for $36, vig on win only = 1.11% house edge

    (12) Don't Pass and (13) Don't Come = 1.36% house edge

    (14) and (15) Pass and Come = 1.41% house edge


    I see at least 15 wagers better than the one you claim to best ee2. Comments?

    The Admiral probably played the Doey-Don't on her in order to hold onto more of his money. It's all in one of Frank's books. If I remember correctly, the Ensign created that play as well as the D/D.

    Send me a pack of smokes and a skunk hat and I'll send you the book.

    Depends . First we must bring up a thing or two.
    The fact is she did not go to the table with the decision
    having been made to bring about that result , therefore
    this is not something that she consciously decided to do
    It was something "THAT HAPPENED not SOMETHING SHE DID"
    What people , BELIEVE" does not form facts. It merely forms the basis for opinion.
    For many thousands of years many thing that people believed to be
    impossible have in time been proven to be possible .
    Many people fall in line with the "NAYSAYERS" negate rhetoric
    and after many years of following that and finally seeing the truth they
    look back on all the wasted years and realize how much they have lost by
    being so negative.

    their negative rhetoric
