Playing the way I do, pretty much impossible.

JOB will likely grind you down to zero if you’re a sitting duck on it. Obviously on 9/6, they do not lavish comps on me. That dud streak will be a -$40 on quarter. Once the storm clearly gathers, move. Stock market correction rumble gets deafening, sell. No complaints this year and I’ve just about retained CET card level. So I can spend more quality time at beloved Borgata.

FAA….I kissed 5k goodbye in market gains since the last week in August. I don’t like what I see in my crystal ball. Still on losing streak at Mohegan. Not worth posting about. Also, they decided not to maintain my Soar status even though I only fell ten percent short on tier points. Looks like Foxwoods here I come. At least I get points I can spend at Foxwoods. Not at Mohegan. Hope Fox still has 99.54 JOB dollars. And 98.91 Deuces on dollars. Been two years since I scoped it out. Could be some changes.

You should be fine. Dow knocking on 35,000 again! I got out at 34,600 and risk seller’s remorse by year’s end. Good luck back at FW. You’re going from the wolf to the fox! I feel like taking on pricey Borgata play.

40 dollars ? I was down over 700 dollars at job the other day at quarters playing for 2 days then hit the progressive for 1400 so from down 700 to up 700 helps the mood quite a bit !!

Congratulations. Catskills RW has gotten bad word of mouth, too. Probably by players who didn’t have your bankroll and got stuck with the bill. I’m just talking about when to leave a machine on quarters. You were essentially a masochist who got lucky. Borgata is a long commute for me too. But I never regret it once there.

Yes borgata is nice with many games over 99.5% . Also catskills lowered there point from 5 cents a point to a penny a point ! the progressive job is lower pay table than full pay, so the meter must get to over 1500 dollars for royal to be any good but the bubble craps is now giving points ! bet dont and lay 5x odds and u r around 99.7%. please dont tell my m sun associates i played without a real positive expected value or I will be scolded !! Sometimes u just need some action LOL !

That’s the way to do it. Play Don’t, hammer the odds. I’ve never tried bubble craps. So much to do in maybe a three hour gambling window. Was RW JOB 7/5?
