Default Hittin the casino tonight

Anyone got any games I should hit up? I'm thinkin some roulette, maybe a bit of blackjack, see what kind of poker they've got going. Any favorite bets of yours would be appreciated.

Roulette has the absolute worst odds of any game

My buddy says bet 2 of the 3 columns and make half a bet 67% of the time.

Nothing is better than drunken craps when u get on a roll....

But if you know how to play holdem or PLO, go for that, best odds when u don't play against a house

Play 1-2 or 2-5 NLHE. Trust me there will be tons and tons of fish and if you run +/even and play TAG you will make money. If you are properly rolled for 5-10 there are plenty o fish.

Craps is f*cking sweet too but I try and avoid pit games.

Only places you'll see me in the casino is the bar, blackjack tables, or playing some roulette. I don't even bother with slots. They're a waste of time and money. As someone said about roulette earlier in this thread, play small.

Just got back from Vegas man, holy shiiit is that city dead money....after the WSOP, everyone just fled the city, man....if you ever go though, make sure to hit up trash talking tuesdays at the Hard Rock...2-5 with a mississipi straddle on the button between 10-100...slow rolling is encouraged, trash talk all night...2-7 gets paid 10 from each player if it takes down a hand...its a really good action game

Went last night and made $90 off 5 bucks in slots.

Took home $120 off 5 about a month and a half ago after giving a game ball I got at a minor league game to a mentally handicapped person. Figured it was because of the kharma for a random act of kindness.

Yesterday morning helped an elderly lady who clearly was not all there 100% mentally load some boxes in her car at the grocery store.

Figured I would see if that kharma was still good, and oh yes, it still was. $200 profit because I've done random acts of kindness. Man, if I ever rescue someone from a burning car/building I am immediately buying a lottery ticket.

So got into a $200 sit'n'go NL Hold Em and walked out with about $1k after expenses. Probably woulda been much more but a friend's getting married and had to show him a good time and whatnot.

No offense, but I despise rating players like that, system dependent for the most part.

Just a random new casino (Indiana Live if anyone's interested)that opened in my neck of the woods. Aside from the poker room which was outstanding compared to what was previously available, pretty disappointed. Betting live horses was a lot of fun though, even if it was just a gimmick.
