    3B5A199F-1FF1-4D6D-BFDB-8ECD9776F95B.jpeg Like any great marketing (and fisherman) company would do, keep throwing the baited line out and fish will come.
    Today’s offer:
    1.either a spoertwatch, $40 free play or 4000 rewards credit.
    2. one table bet game @$65 ....more commentary on that later.
    3. 5000 bonus reward credits

    So I went today at 1:30, got the $40 free play and donked that pretty quickly on Ultimate X.

    Moved to a $50 DD BJ table and checked in for $1500. Lost that in about 15 shoes playing my normal 2 spots - just couldn’t get anything going...plus a few players in and out (no mid shoe entry) Dealer change and I checked in for another $1500.
    Again, I could not get anything going. When playing 2 hands, losing one hand and pushing the other is a loss . On top of that dealer was drawing to 20 and 21 with regularity with 4-6 cards.
    Lost this $1500 in about 25 shoes. Last shoe there was a dealer change.
    So like the degenerate that I have been over the last 2 weeks, I pull my remaining stash of $4300.
    Up down all around. The a horrible shoe came out and I was down to $600. Next shoe was pretty decent and made about $2500. I just felt that I was “due” a great shoe.
    And then it happened...pressing, splits, doubles and dealer busts. I did not lose a hand and found myself with $9100 at the end of the shoe . $100 to Sherrie ...plus I had been betting for her the last 3 shoes so in total I am guessing she probably dropped $400 total.
    Time to color up and go home. In all a LOT of risk for a $1700 profit.
    After I cashed out at the cage, I forgot that I still had the $65 free bet. So on the way out I stopped at the table, got the slip signed by the pit. One player was playing and I did not want to screw him up so I asked if I could place the wager on his hand...he obliged. I told the new dealer of it wins it is hers. He got a A9, dealer showing J and flipped 8..another $65 drop for the dealers.

    Rant...I continue to get chicken shit small table bet offers from Harrah’s NOLA yet today’s total play = was 1 hour 48 minutes @ $425 per hand ($850 total). They don’t value local table game players. They will not even give me a host at the property (not that I need one - but it would be nice to speak to someone local instead of a marketing representative in Vegas that can’t do shit outside of mailer offers)

    Rant # 2...only garnered about 1650 Tier credits (before bonuses). For the CET ADT gurus - DOES THIS SOUND RIGHT?

    Rant # 3 - Harrah’s NOLA is requiring either a player’s card or ID to play DD BJ.
    I played stupid and asked the pot critter the reason. Her response, “they are trying to identify any card counters”
    I wanted to ask if they were not concerned pre-covid shutdown ....cause I have never seen that before!!

    Congrats on the nice comeback!
    Is the casino as quiet as before? I’m thinking the relatively high number of positive C19 cases in NOLA would be keeping quite a few of the older people away from visiting.
