Just returned from 2 night stay at Resorts. Hadn't been there in about a year, and somehow, I was still able to get 2 nights comped (Sunday/Monday).
Liked the new carpet in casino and all the changes they made. I stayed in room 522. Looks like 522 used to be 2 rooms, and they converted it to one large room, with 2 bathrooms. Was huge room. It was beautiful. I was shocked when I walked in, since you never know what you are getting until you open the door.
Casino was dead on Sunday afternoon/night. Played craps, and walked away up a few hundred, after being down almost $600.00. Was playing either by myself or with one other shooter most of the time. Got comp tix to see some singer that night at Resorts (can't even remember his name). He was singer/impersonator, and was pretty good. Did songs from mostly 50s/60s/70s, and sounded like most of the guys he did. Music geared to the 70+ age group, and from the crowd that was there, he hit the right age group. I tipped maitre d a whopping $5, and sat right up near stage.
Played some more craps at Resorts after show, and hit for almost a grand. Again, hardly anyone playing, so I was rolling fast and lucky.
Walked down to Showboat, and quickly lost a few hundred at craps. Walked through Taj, but didn't play there. I don't like the vibe at Taj, and hardly ever play there. Not sure why. Looks like it's getting old. I prefer Resorts to Taj alot. Bet that wouldn't make Mr. Trump too happy to hear.
Next morning, I played some craps before breakfast, and I always lose when I play before I eat. Well, this time was no different, and I dropped by mandatory $300 in less time then it takes to crack an egg. However, this time, my luck was a little different. I sat at slot machine (Rock Around the Clock machine), still waiting for my gf to come down, and got a bonus round. I hit the jackpot, which for that machine, was $1K. Never really play slots, so that was biggest slot hit for me ever. I was shocked when I hit. Never expected it.
Ate breakfast at Breadsticks. Was decent enough.
Drove to Ballys and played there for a bit. Lost at craps, hit a triple at horse book to make it back. Lost at slots.
Drove to Tropicana. Had quick bite at Hooters. Checked out the decorations at The Quarter. Very nice. Lost at craps. Not so nice. Won a few bucks playing Roulette slot machine in The Quarter while waiting for gf who was shopping. Drove back to Resorts, and had dinner buffet right before they closed at 8pm (why so early closing for buffet???). Buffet is not so good at Resorts. Only $20/person, but still not worth it. I say only $20, because that is what you pay for sit down breakfast, so with everything included, $20 isn't so bad. Did a little bit more gambling after dinnfer, and called it a night. Drove home Tuesday morning, and getting ready for New Year's Eve wedding. Time to get dressed.
Happy New Year everyone!!! Hope everyone has some good hits in 2014!
