    I have done pretty good at Riverspirit and Ramona lately. Went to Ramona Sunday and played one of the Timber Wolf machines. Betting $1 and the machine gave me the major for $277 and a few spins later the minor for over $50 and the mini a couple times for over $20. Wound up taking home $330.
    Do you play the OK lottery? I won $1000 on the Cash 5 lottery Thursday night. Had 2 sets of the same numbers and won $500 on each one. Friday night won another $500 on Cash 5 also.
    Hope your luck gets better.
    I think we all need to go to Vegas.
    Good luck everyone.
    We played at Beau, IP, Harrahs, Palace and Hard Rock. HR was by far the worst as I said Beau we did pretty good at as well as IP Palace was hit and miss but still much better than HR. We definitely did not do as well as Vegas LOL. I'm central so don't make it up to Tulsa much but both times we played HR it was worse than Remington which generally has the worst rep of the central casinos, legit the first $100 I never hit a single win over twice my bet it was really pathetic and definitely not worth the drive.

    MUCH AGREED ON VEGAS next month we make our return hopefully. We've been doing fairly well at the Grand and Kickapoo Harrah lately no huge wins but hit $840 on a Timber Wolf on a $1.20 bet by the Poker Room and several in the 3-500 range all on Class 3 machines and never betting over $4, pretty decent by Oklahoma standards I reckon. We've at least left with money in our pockets compared to pre Covid when we actually completely quit Oklahoma casinos because it had gotten to be where we would have better served using hundys for toilet paper I dropped 18K in the last 6 months of 2018, compared to finishing 11K up in Vegas in the same time period, and don't get me started on the customer appreciation aspect.

    Bubba,
    I know what you mean about customer appreciation or lack there of. In 2019 and part of 2020 I used to get $100 a week free play at Riverspirit and was getting up to $70 a week at Hard Rock. Now I get $10 a week at Riverspirit and $5 a week from Hard Rock. Hard Rock used to give me really nice gifts plus free play but now I have to get 30 points on my card at Hard Rock for my gifts. It takes $10 for one point for Hard Rock. I guess they think I fell off the turnip truck if they think I am going to pay $300 for a $30 gift.
    I am glad you are doing well at Grand and Kickapoo. I have only been to Grand once but I really liked it there. Never been to Kickapoo but I may have to give it a try. I like Riverwind and really like Winstar.
    In 2019 I won 35 jackpots between Hard Rock, Riverspirit and Osage. In 2020 I won 4 before the virus really hit. It seems like last year and 2019 was a lot easier winning something than this year has been.
    I hope you do well in Vegas. Good luck wherever you go.

    Yeah I definitely hear you on the Free PLay, I got offers in the 100s a day for Vegas and $5 a week here LOL. But its bigger than that, they actually want to send me free nights, as long as it's Sun-Thurs LOL and for a much lesser room than the true Suites I get in Vegas. Then you have the other things, limo transport, 1000 in F&B, gifts to the room etc. In 2019 I did decent the first couple of months, but as soon as Stitt announced wanting to renegotiate the compact I immediately saw a difference in the play level here locally and others I know well did as well.

    Bubba,
    I noticed the lower payouts after the virus hit. I think the local casinos are trying to get the money back they lost when they had to close do to the virus. The problem is they want all the money back at once.
    When we used to go to Biloxi I would get $800 in free play from the Palace. In fact when I go back I will get $800 in free play again. Coushatta offered me $485 for the first 2 weeks of July and another $485 for the last 2 weeks. I sure wish the locals would offer the same great free play.
    Have you ever played at any of the 7 Clans Casinos? I get emails from them and I can get free play and free rooms but I have not made it yet.
    Good luck.

    Thats what I'm talking about, Beau this last trip was $1000 FP and $600 F&B and the junket flight, they are offering me 800\500 right now on a junket but the schedules just aren't matching up for us right now with work commitments. That availability issue is why I think the Ok casinos don't offer squat, why offer people when they live right down the road, Winstar for example despite me playing equal to a friend from Denton in every way, maybe bigger even, he gets constant offers from them, I on the other hand have only had the Sun-Thurs offers. That really makes no sense since I actually live further than him LOL
    I've played 7 clans yes, Perry, Newkirk and the ones in Red Rock, did pretty decent at Red Rock and alright at Perry but nothing worth driving back for. Newkirk was the worst of them for us, only reason we hit it was I was running in a Field Trial up in Kansas near there, it's definitely a haul from home LOL.

    Bubba,
    I agree the free play offers make no sense and there is no rhyme or reason why some people get better offers than other people.
    I really like Winstar. I have an Elite card and I have been to Winstar 3 times.
    Coushatta sent me $485 in free play for the first 2 weeks of July and $485 for the last 2 weeks. I wish Coushatta was closer. It is about 11 hours for us.
    Have you been to Coushatta? I love it but like I said it is so far away. I may see if I can get a flight from Tulsa sometime.
    Have you been to the Miami, Okla Casinos? I really like Downstream, Indigo Sky and Buffalo Run. I have not been to any others in Miami except the ones I mentioned
    so I do not know how the others are.
    Another place I want to try is Kansas Star casino. Have you ever been there?
    Just saw on Fox News a couple at Riverspirit hit a $1 million dollar jackpot today. They hit it on a Monopoly slot machine. They just put those machines in a few weeks ago. Good for the couple. Happy to hear someone win big.
    You are in the OKC area right? Just wondering where you get flights for Biloxi? You said you were offered a junket flight right?
    Good luck wherever you go.

    I get my flights through my MGM status, I'm Platinum with them. About once a month I get emails and snail mails with my Beau offers, my Vegas offers several times a week.
    That jackpot doesnt surprise me at all, those machines are WAP and not controlled or even paid out by the casinos here. Funny part is when you compare the number of those 1M to Vegas vs here it's hilarious, I read a few every month that hit those there but it's front page news here despite the huge number of players in this state. I have been to Kansas star and really liked playing there when we but I liked Boot Hill and Crosswinds much better for play. Boot Hills a bit more of a drive but I was hunting up in the Panhandle and decided to give it a shot before I headed home.

    Never been to Coushatta but want to go sometime, I've played in La and found the play there much better than Oklahoma but for the distance and ease of travel I would go to Colorado to play, we have had some real good play there and the scenery is obviously outstanding. We preferred the casinos in Cripple Creek to Blackhawk though just in case you decide to go up there.

    Bubba,
    Years ago my husband and I went all over the country showing a 1971 Cuda at World of Wheels car shows. A few of the shows were in Colorado. We went to Denver, Pueblo and Greely. When we went to the one in Greely the promoter charted a bus for all the people that were showing there cars, The bus went to Central City, Blackhawk and Cripple Creek. The driver dropped us off and said to call when we wanted him to pick us back up. The view in the area was amazing. We did not stay very long at Blackhawk but we did most of our playing at Cripple Creek and Central City. We ate lunch at one of the Cripple Creek casinos and really enjoyed the food. We had a good time playing. Back then the machines took coins so it did not take much to play. That was back in 1998 and 1999 so we were not into the gambling scene as much back then as we are now. When we showed the Cuda we went to 15 shows. Most of the shows were pretty close to Casinos so we would try to stay at the Casinos because they had really good security and big parking lots that we could park our truck and trailer in. Once we set the car up at the show we would go to Antique stores and find other things to do like play at a Casino. Staying there was great because we had great food anytime we wanted. That was an enjoyable time for us. Our Cuda was never beat and we won 15 Best restored at all the shows. At the end of the season which was from Thanksgiving to Easter we would go to Las Vegas for a dinner and awards presentation. They gave us a beautiful crystal eagle award and beautiful jackets plus $2500. I have great memories of the shows. We met a lot of great people too.
    I know you will like Coushatta when you go. It is a great place to play I just wish it was closer to us.
    Is Crosswinds the new Casino in Kansas? I know they claim they have a 96% payback on their machines.
    Good luck.
