    torrential rains, I figured roads would be empty, I was wrong. Only thing more crowded then the roads was the racino. Nice crowd this morning, no problem getting a seat at the bubble I chose.
    so I had those bad luck 50's left over, spent some, had 5 left.
    took those along with an old 100 dollar bill and started my session with 350 in bank.

    immediately, I got hit fast, was down to 140 dollars, then started hitting some numbers, doesn't take much to swing 3,4,5, hundred bucks with 15 flat and 50 odds.

    at one point I pushed some bets up to 75 odds.(not because I was winning,)

    tough to play 15 flat with a 350 dollar bankroll, its always over quick, either win 300 or lose 300, either way, its over within 20 rolls usually.

    today was no different, went down, went up 200, stayed, gave it all back. Left with 80 dollars after having my bets set and then the ugly number showed up.

    I normally would never bet 200 bucks on table with 300 dollars bankroll, but bubble play here at aqueduct has high min bets, so this is not how I normally play at any other casino.

    just some shots of screens. I remember to shoot a shot of the first point that was made, a five, I had 15 flat with 50 odds on it.

    ok, got them to load

    I havent been going as often as lets say last year, actually 1/4 of how many times I went last year, but its been near impossible to post a trip report here the past few months, so since board is running smoothly I put in todays.dropped 270 this morning, plus 5 dollars to park indoors.(too much construction outdoor lots and it was pouring< I hate paying for parking at a casino, seems real kinda fuck you attitude by all casinos now. They should not only let us park for free, they should throw in a free car wash.

    A handful of bad luck 50s on Election Day in a casino loaded with Asians.

    What could go wrong?

    A car wash? :confused: Yeah, that always goes good with an "ass waxing". Nice photos though, better than MOST, by far. :)

    I was also ticked when one old guy came up to my terminal and just waved his players card over my terminal to put his card in to get my credit. Good thing he didnt, I would have flung his card like a frisbee.

    One of the regular players at the bubble, the bald headed guy around my age, I see him almost every time I go, made me laugh. He said when he voted before he got there, people were bitching about the heavy rain and lack of parking to vote, blamed it on trump, said he wanted it to storm so less voters would get out.......made me laugh.

    Ive sent 2 emails regarding the bubble to whomever, whatever contact I had from resorts, suggesting both they lower the mins and offer at least 5 times odds instead of 3,4,5

    I went with they would double the amount of people, if not triple the players on those electronic machines, bringing in 2-3 times as much profit without sacrificing any space or personel.

    sunset station offers 5 times odds on the bubble with one dollar bets, red rock only offered 2 times odds. Im not 100 % sure now, I don't recall, but I think green valley offered 5 times odds also, and their live table only offered 3,4,5 odds on one table, 5 times odds on another table with different bonus bets.

    I wasn't used to that, thought all live tables in each casino had same bets until I played in green valley. different bonus bets with different odds when I was there.

    learn something in casinos every time I go.

    when they finally give Big A full casino license, it wont matter much to me, because I already know there wont be a table game under 25 dollars min for years and years. They don't need to do it. And Im willing to put money on it, on weekend nights when weather is good, it will be difficult to find a table with 25 min, most will be 50 or more.

    The demand is so high here, and there isn't one live table in NYC.

    oh, this is the only time I play the money, not the bets.

    I prefer 10 flat with 5 x odds.

    I don't like to start with 75 or 60 odds on the 15 flat bet, so I bet 50, and once Im up, I increase odds to full 3,4,5,

    not the best way to play, but the mins are just too high for me to be comfortable.

    I didn't pay attention to that. it's your money to bet as you see fit and I do that sometimes too.

    I was just wishing the odds were higher here. The only machine with 3/4/5 or better odds is 2 1/2 hours from home.

    Sometimes on the interblock machines I end up with real odd ball bets like a $27.33 six because I hit the repeat last bet button but didn't have enough money in the machine to make the full bet.

    They have some of the machines in Iowa set up stupidly. If you have over $1200 in the machine after a winning bet some of them take down the winning bet with the payout and it spits out a ticket for that amount.

    Makes it hard to play a big run sometimes.

    just sayin, didn't mean to sound rude.......I just cant take the big mins here.

    some bubbles have crappy terms when it comes to bets.


    I think it was red rock, the largest lay bet was 25 dollars, and they only offer 2 times odds. but the other 2 station casinos I played at offered 5 times odds

    Red Rock has the standard $400 max for place/buy.lay bets. I think Sunset is much lower but it's been a while since I played there so don't quote me on that one. Palms was only $14 max for place/lay bets the last time I was there which was this spring.

    Looks like Interblocks software is evolving. I found another machine this week that has lower table mins during the week and higher on weekends. With a little luck they'll update the software in your local machine the next time they're there.

    from the front entrance, I go up to the first casino floor, then straight in from the escalator, from the parking garage, straight in till you hit the bubble. (same bubble)

    I haven't been upstairs, but I used to only play on the one behind the cashier cage to the left. I used to wait for seats on only that one, but I haven't been up there in over a year, so Im not sure if its still there(Im betting it is as of today)


    Im hoping they lower the mins, maybe I should look around to see if any bubble there is 10 dollars now. Yonkers had a 10 dollar bubble mixed in with 15 dollar mins. last time I was there.

    maybe it was sunset, one of them I decided to switch to lay bets and I was surprised how low the max bet was.
    I play so many bubbles, it all blends in after a while. Next time I play on a different bubble Ill try to remember the betting max if its stated

    what was great about sunset station bubble, besides the low min bets and 5 times odds, each morning Id get up around 5:30-6 am, and I was able to go down and get coffee at 6 am and sit on bubble alone yet its not like being on a table alone. no one is pushing dice to me, if I wanted to take a break for 10 minutes, just stopped playing, play at my own pace in am, low mins, its relaxing,

    All are $15 min except the top floor - which is open after 3 Wed-Sun - has $5 min bubbles.

    On the floor where you play there are 3 bubble machines. The one furthest from the garage has serious issues where the bubble doesn’t read the dice sometimes and just says “center error” and re-rolls. It happened to me today with a $50 buy on the 4 and it re-rolled to a 7 out.

    I’ve had some good success with the bubbles there but what pisses me off is that they give you hardly any points for playjng craps. The only good thing about the players card is that you get into the parking garage free.
