Show Notes:  We once again explore the charm of the Southern Indiana Riverboats, Hollywood Lawrenceburg, Rising Star in Rising Sun, and the Belterra in Florence, Indiana. Yet we were shocked to learn that the state of Indiana has changed its casino laws and now permits land based casinos.  All three resorts that we visited have a combination, some of the casino remains on the boat, some of the casino is now on land.  In fact, all three have new sports books in these resorts are land-based.  Perhaps the day of the  Riverboats, put in the river waters way back in 1993 will be coming to an end.  

In “Craps Talk” Coach Fav highlights a new small craps table at the Belterra that is run by just two dealers. The table is for six players maximum. In this way the casino can keep a craps table open at those hours when it would not be sensible to put a crew on a larger table. This idea is a good one. Our “Meet-Up Listeners” made the “Make Them All” bet three times in two days of play in the small tub of a table.  Coach Fav did play on the larger tables later in the evening where he saw a player lose $5,000 in about 90 minutes. We learned via Messenger that one of our podcast listeners, Mike, won $5800 at the Belterra just a few days before we arrived. Mike was not with us the nights that we played. We missed him by a few days. Again, he messaged us regarding his good fortune.

In the third segment of the podcast, Janie and Coach Fav reveal how they feel as if they are in a John Cougar Mellencamp song when they are visiting the small rivers towns of Southern Indiana. “Here’s a little ditty about Jack and Diane, two American kids doing the best they can.” So much fun to be here. Give it a try for a total change of pace. Finally, in church Janie meets a friend who explains that she is giving up casinos for lent, with some safety nets.  She is staying until Midnight on Fat Tuesday and playing again on Easter Sunday. Count Janie and Coach Fav out on that giving up casinos thing.  How about you?

Thanks for listening.
