Tight Tropicana

Post by FAA »

With some trepidation, I return to the scene of many crimes against my BR tomorrow. It may be a very short stay, given my unfortunate history. Players really get the shaft here. The good news is knowing that Bally's is just a shuttle or jitney ride away. Any opinions, preferably from those actually entering city limits during the past twelve months? You know to whom I refer.

Now you tell me! I learned too late. Bad pay tables everywhere I looked! Even worse than last year. They are perpetually cold to begin with. I managed to get $20 from my $20 FP and promptly shuttled to Bally’s. The ancient machines and music aren’t exactly draws either. Hasta la vista, Troppy!

Well, okay. See you much later, like when pigs fly. I can’t believe that VP players still tolerate these clunky old horrid pay table machines. TSIF. Plentiful options just up the boardwalk. The sprawling resort complex is compared to Harrah’s. Both are still party HQ.

I braved the 98.4% bar JOB today to kill time. It almost killed me. I was -$155 in eighty minutes at one point. Fortunately, things picked up and I even hit a $75 quad. I still lost. $41 on this fool’s errand. ☹️ But someone was dealt four Aces and kicker.

And yet, less than a month later, back you went!

I don't ever play JOB but ow did you hit a $75.00 quad? Were you playing Game King single line? What denomination and how many coins were you betting?

You’re a sharpie; do the math. Schadenfreude Duo is on patrol.
