Welcome to our 5th season of our podcasts. Coach Fav explains how South West Airlines credits “Wannagetaway” flight tickets, and how simple it is to cancel rooms at Bally’s, Luxor, and the Golden Nugget without monetary loss.

Coach Fav then explains his 3-2-1 craps betting designed for a low roller pass line player.  This system is enjoyable to play and offers pass line players a strong opportunity for success. 

Janie reviews our most recent casino trip to The Rising Star Casino Resort in Rising Sun, Indiana where we enjoyed the 70’s rock group, America, in concert.  Also she provides the details of our very successful gambling experiences over a 3-day period. Did you know that The Rising Star Casino Resort has become so popular that management is opening a “river ferry” to carry cars from the Kentucky side of the Ohio River to the Indiana side – just to make the journey to the resort much shorter for patrons from Kentucky.  It opens in August, 2018- this month. 

Pennsylvania casino expansion is putting another casino within 20 miles of the home of Casinos USA.  Janie explains what gaming company is building at a local mall. 

In the final segment, “Casino Group Therapy,”  Coach Fav weighs in on the long-standing debate – Who knows more about playing Craps, low rollers or high rollers?

1.  Making online reservations via M-Life for room and cabana

2. Requesting mobile checkin- two nights for $160 including taxes and resort fees

3. Defining a cabana a bit unusal as in $50 for two chairs, Special Cabana price of $250 for a real cabana includes $250 in food and drink. Jill takes this special deal.

4. Uninvited guest in Jill’s cabana fridge happens to be a massive dead cockroach.

5. NY-NY credits everything beyond $100 for the dead cockroach problem, (very fair)

Episode # 42 People Skills

Published June 7, 2018

1. Our Digital Audience is getting a fan following as we strive to provide information and entertainment. Hey, that’s cool with us.

2. A lot of positive feedback on Janie’s report last episode on vacationing and gambling while staying in Daytona Beach, Florida.  

3. Full Disclosure: “My Talking Pet App” is available on the iTunes Store.  So are our podcasts available through iTunes; however, they are available at no cost.  Why would iTunes put so many podcasts on their store site if they are free?  Podcasters do not pay to put them there. Our guess is so it brings listeners to the site in that they might find an app that they like even though it cost a few bucks. MyTalking Pet App will enable your dog to talk; SO AT LEAST IT SEEMS. Next we hear “Oliver the Talking Dog” talk about his “People Skills,” which leads us into a more serious consideration of Casino Customer Service as it should be.  

4. Coach Fav reviews 4 of his 10 commandants of Gambling

5. We present very serious medical information and a tip in our 9-day Las Vegas July Vacation Plan. It is our need for refrigeration as we are traveling with medicine that should be kept cold.  Diabetic medicines often include medicines that are not to get overheated. In the Nevada desert in July, that’s a problem. Let’s begin with the airport and explain our solution to this problem and how the casinos are involved. (IMPORTANT)

6. In our Craps Talk Segment, we explore the joy and pain of becoming Miss, Mrs. or Mr. PARLEY at the Craps Table. “Parlay It,” may be something to try next time you play.

Episode # 40 Changing Tables

Published May 10, 2018:   Contact our Voicemail at  1-724-519-4556.

1. If Dice have “no memory” why do so many players Change Tables Playing Craps? What’s really at work here?  Some Casinos are making $5 tables crapless craps – Not a good thing because it elevates the “house edge” even more. Is this a Contradiction or not? Changing tables or even changing Casinos because the dice are “cold” must mean you do not truly believe that dice are always random, does it not? Traditional Craps culture is often illogical and I admit, despite knowing better, I am often illogical in my Craps thinking too. Yet I refuse to change and probably most of you are the same way.

2. “CrapsJourney,” is a craps podcast from Australia that we recommend, here’s why.

3.  Podcast Personal Taste-Our Big Beef about “Disappointing Delivery and Content” in Gambling Podcasts – My personal taste excludes F-Bomb Vulgarity and Celebrating Intoxication – either are not entertaining to hear, informative or helpful. Hear our choice for the “Most Informative Gambling Podcast” and why.

4. Coach Fav reviews 3 of Casino USA’s 10 Commandants of Gambling.

5. A big Tip for Booking and Saving Money on Air Travel (Flying to Las Vegas)

8. Step One: Before the come-out roll, put equal amounts of money on the pass line and don’t pass line (at a $5 table make both bets $5). MAKE A DON’T PASS LINE ODDS BET OF $30 (this bet will pay $20 if a 7 is rolled before the established point).
9. Step Two: Once there is an established point, place the 6 and 8 for $12 each.
10. Step Three: Once a 6 or 8 is made, take them down. (profit $14) and immediately, play 22 inside, $5 on the 5 and 9, $6 on the 6 and 8.
12. After a hit, take all place bets down. (total profit so far, $21)

Chapter 1
2. College basketball point-shaving gambling scandals began in 1950 and continue perhaps to the present day. What is point-shaving? Players think it might be OK to do this because they are not throwing a game, they are just secretly trying to stop their team from beating the spread.
Infamous scams at CCNY, Boston College, Arizona State, and Northwestern. Scary/Sad
Chapter 2

Chapter 3
4. Laying the 4 and 10 the Coach Fav way! Make $40 lay bets on the 4 and 10 on come-out rolls.

After the come-out roll, Coach Fav keeps the lay bets up but for one roll. He also has $15 on the pass line with $20 odds. Making the lay bets on come-out rolls may move you to playing the Don’t Pass- MAYBE

1. PLAYING CRAPS THE AL KAUFMAN WAY, What is Smart Craps? .. Why do people lose big so often playing craps the best way by math standards? . Consider other ways to Play.
