    The old Vegas blog has been dormant for about the length of time I've been away from the boards. Part of the reason is that real life, and health issues, got in the way.

    Las Vegas Central


    But I'm firing it back up. Although I'm thinking about combining it with my 'other' blog that mainly focuses on sports gambling and just having a general "gaming" blog.

    The Public Money

    I also like the name "The Public Money" better.

    Just did a quick post on double-booking hotels when visiting town and why I do it.

    If you do go take a peek, thanks for checking in.

    Just skimmed the articles you linked, not sure what kind of connection (if any) they're trying to draw here, the last one was kind of funny though:

    "Stephen Paddock’s casino game of choice — video poker — was a perfect means to win money in a way that he could get complimentary rooms, like the Mandalay Bay suite where he died Sunday night, without raising suspicion."

    Wow, you mean instead of just booking a room and paying a few hundred bucks, I can spend years and years losing tens of thousands at video poker and get the same room for free?! What a brilliant (and highly relevant) discovery they've made here...

    "Experts who know the ins and outs of video poker and how players can score without calling attention to themselves say there are thousands of gamblers who could essentially hide in plain sight if they choose."

    Oh my god everyone! There are gamblers in Las Vegas! Thousands of them! Hiding in plain sight! What are we going to do?!

    I enjoyed the pay table write up. Quads are the name of the game and what determines if you’re going to win in the short term. I know your pain on those droughts you’ve had despite playing better paytable. I sometimes downshift into a lower variance game like Bonus Poker or something like nickel 5play super times pay to help smooth things out.

    The CNF thing bugs me as why can’t they just raise the price 50¢ to $1 and accomplish the same thing? Can they avoid some of the food and beverage tax this way? It’s not like it’s a race to the bottom with prices as the people buying $9 Blue Moons at Beer Park are as worried about their money as those seeking out the $2 Michalobs at Casino Royale. I expect my drinks to cost more at a place with a premium view or location.

    Nice post abt VP. I agree that we should patronize casinos that offer the best odds for any game. But you're right, most of the time it just isn't feasible. Doesnt make sense to pay for a cab ride off strip to play $.25 VP or $10-$15 BJ for a couple hrs. And those percentages include hitting a royal. If you never hit a royal, you are a lifetime loser and even then...
