Howdy. Been away for a couple of weeks. My grandsons AAA baseball team (coached by my oldest boy) was invited to two MN State Championships. The first weekend was in Rochester, southern MN the second weekend was in Brainerd, northern MN (near Lake Mille Lac). The team was eliminated on Sunday in Rochester and Saturday night in Brainerd. Diamond Jo Worth casino is located about an hour and 15 minutes from Rochester, just across the MN/IA border on I35. They have 3 live Craps tables (2 $5 min and 1 $10). I watched the $5 dollar games for awhile before buying in for $100. There was a dice setter who was doing a good job hitting the 4/10 at least twice a session. I adopted a pass line strategy as follows: Bet $5 and if the point is 4 or 10 then I add a 2x Odds bet and ride it out. If the point is 6 or 8 then I add 2x Odds to the PL bet and Place $6 on the opposite number. I was doing alright, up about $25 when everything went to Hell. Three big spenders joined the game, throwing about $500 on the table and then betting the pass line, exotic bets, place bets , come bets whatever. Some of these bets included an automatic dealer tip, so the crew was bending over backwards to sort the bets out. It was taking 15-20 minutes to get the bets resolved, new bets made and the dice ready to roll. By the time the dice moved around the table, I was down $30. I took my $70 and went to the Roulette wheel. MN has several Indian casinos, one near Brainerd called Grand Casino Mille Lac, another south of Minneapolis called Mystic Lake. No live or Bubble Craps in MN; however Mystic does have Roulette, 6 or 67machines in fact. I now know why. They must've bought these machines at a Rummage sale. There were no statistics available. And to make it worse, the minimum bet was $1. No Roulette in Brainerd. I ended up playin 5c Spin Poker and Dueces Wild. Bottom line, I am back home and getting ready to head to the neighborhood casino where they have an IB Roulette machine which has 25c bets and a $1 minimum (4 25c bets). Sunday I will be at Twin Arrows playing IB Bubble Craps. There is no place like home.
