Episode # 70 $375,000 Win at McCarran International Airport

Part I: How many of the “experts” tell us never to gamble at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas – “machines have low payout rates,” they say. “Save your money because you will never win,” they warn us.  That’s what I have read from a dozen or so sources of Vegas the so called Gambling Experts. Despite this wisdom a young man from Western Pennsylvania won that $375,000 have spending  but $3 on a Max bet on a  dollar machine.  His one max bet paid off SO BIG. Good for him and I recently met his mother who is one of the happiest nurses that I know. I love telling this story because the winner lives in Greensburg, Pennsylvania, just 24 miles from our front door. Yea, Man! This is another reason I always spend $20 on the Airport slots when flying back to Pittsburgh from a Las Vegas stay.  

Part II. Mini Casino coming to Westmoreland Mall in the building previously owned by a clothing store, now defunct. Wow. The proliferation of casinos in the United States is not over yet. For us, it means we have another nearby opportunity for a casino experience: The Rivers in Pittsburgh, The Meadows near Washington, Pa, Lady Luck in Farmington, Pa, and now the soon to be built casino in Westmoreland Mall in Hempfield Two, Pa.  

Part III.  Rocky Gap with Jerry and Elaine Day 1. Crab Cakes, Fire Pits, and Gambling.

Rocky Gap Day 2 with Geoff: Swimming at the beach, Swimming in the indoor pool with a sliding roof open to the sky on a 90 degree sunny day. Dinner at Signatures. Later it was craps and blackjack. 

Part IV. Coach Fav gives a very important tip in Craps Talk about coming to a craps table with a hot roll going on. Here’s how to get in without bothering the shooter.  IMPORTANT.
