Slots suck!

Post by murrs001 »

Always say lose your money on slots,and get it back on video poker!
Recently went over to LaBerge casino in Lake Charles..about a 3 hour trip from Houston. Texas has a so called no gambling law?? But we have a 2 casinos and illegal game rooms all over the city and lottery and a Horse racing track(poor attendance) but our idiot governor would rather the money go to Louisiana then keep it here in the State! We have the 8th wonder of the world that's sits next to the Texans home stadium... That's just rotting away...it would be perfect for a casino,but that would be too logical and politics just don't work that way! So its better to raise property taxes and help out Louisiana (which has very low property tax)
Makes perfect sense?? Then when coming back home from Louisiana stopped by Delta Downs in Vinton,LA.
No video poker! And they are remodeling... Really don't understand that,it looked better before.I guess just save my money to play in Vegas! Which I see videos on,that say the resorts are gouging customer to make up for lost revenue from the pandemic! So I guess its just pick your poison?

I was trying to upper case their level of credibility.

Between sales tax, property tax, and income tax, Louisiana has one of the highest personal tax rates in the entire South. It is true that they have homestead exemption against property taxes, but the overall average of property, sales, and income taxes puts them at or close to the top in the South. After the small state sales tax, individual parishes (counties) can set their own sales tax rates, which can be very high. So in terms of total taxation across the board, Texas residents have by far the better deal.

The majority of people are slot zombies. It's truly a testament to humanity & all it's ignorance when you see the kinds of dismal games human beings gravitate to in the casino. The fact that all the games on the floor now are mindless big screen chinese themed forced-lines games is sad, and speaks volumes. I guess a game that's likely taking an 18 cent advantage out of every dollar you run through it is people's idea of a good time.

Anytime a casino has a remodel you know what's coming, the floor dominated by that trash, with downgraded VP hidden in the worst stuffy parts of the casino where half the people crammed onto the game kings and bartops are playing blackjack. Good luck getting a seat on a weekend!

Oh let the sun beat down upon my face, with stars to fill my dreams. I am a traveler of both time and space, to be where I have been. Sit with elders of the gentle race, this world has seldom seen. Talk of days for which they sit and wait, all will be revealed.

Tax free of course.
