    Random Gambling Thoughts

    So the idea I had for this thread is for all your random thoughts that pop up in your head throughout the day that just isn't a big enough deal to warrant it's own thread or you just want to get something off your chest. I apologize if there is already another thread like this, but I haven't seen one and thought this would be a fun thread to express your thoughts on random subjects.

    So let me begin, I called Total Rewards to book a room at Harras Louisiana Downs for 4th of July. They told me they are no longer affiliated with the hotels that are on the property. This was a major let down as I was hoping to have some discounted rates. Nevertheless, I called the hotel directly and made a reservation. They still have the shuttles that will take you from the hotel to the casino on the other side of the property.

    I am a big fan of threads like this on other boards I participate in. Thanks for starting it...I hope people will use it.

    I was playing blackjack a few weeks ago and a guy celebrating his birthday was at my table. He had no idea what he was doing. One of the casinos' regulars sat down who I know to be one of those guys who gets mad at the way other people play. The very first hand the birthday boy does something against the book and the regular gives a dirty look and throws his chips. The next hand the birthday boy had two sixes with the dealer showing a two and asked the regular if he should split, to which the regular said "of course not" and then when the guy tried to hit the regular tried to stop him. So, Mr. Everybody Has To Play Right not only didn't give the guy the right advice...but tried to stop him when he tried the second best play. I see stuff like that a lot and it always makes me laugh.

    I hope it is used also! So many times I have wanted to leave a thought somewhere but nowhere on here seemed fitting.

    This thread IS big enough for the both of us .

    I have a question for all the Vegas regulars. Growing up the Casino in Vegas I always wanted to visit was Luxor. However, I never see any videos or anyone ever talking about it. What is the reason behind that? Thanks!

    We're booked there for two days next week. If we keep it, I'll let you know. Slot floor doesn't get high reviews. Haven't stayed there in 10 yrs

    Also, what about the oldies ???? Excalibur, Tropicana, etc. on that end of the strip - haven't heard any stories (win or lose) regarding those casinos. Is the play that bad, or just not interesting enough?

    although i only stay at CP now that we go for pleasure only. Our 1st 2 trips to vegas ere on business and stayed at luxor. too many years ago but we enjoyed looking up at it from outside, the trams were nice too. back then the casino itself seemed tricky because it was a big circle? saw a concert there and really hated how cramped the seats were. i also thought the buffet was better than many say it is. naturally we are talking maybe 10 years ago. stayed in both towers and inclinater was fun and pyramid tower rooms were sort of funny with me needing to watch my head. but host there isnsited on 2nd trip to stay in newer tower because they were the most recently renovated.

    Brandon,
    Luxor is always my home base. I have had 5 HP's at Luxor, 2 hp's at excalibur and walked away with $4,000 from Tropicana on a $5 Top Dollar. I have been trying to take more pics to share so maybe I will have more in June.

    My random thought is one i have asked in many diff ways , it has to do with RNG but opinions on is it affected by bet size/? for example.if all things were equal, and BR was unlimited. am i more likely to hit a combo say on a penny slot that pays out the highest amount it can for a max bet or less likely because of the payback% vs someone betting less than max but getting top symbols because the payout would be less due to a smaller wager? always get told bet size wont matter but since i only bet max, i would say ive only had 2 handpays , but countless $700-$800 hits . . sorrty my thoughts are confusing lol

    shorter way of asking is.do you think my chances could be less ,by betting max simply because of its potential payout should i hit say a full screen of wilds or some dream hit vs the mid size bet? naturally this would only matter if bankrol was unlimited and had same number of spins as half bet size over same amount of toime
