it's hard to leave here like i should when the promotions here are so good. and ive never seen so many casinos where its so easy to get pulled for drawings when theres hardly any customers in any of the casinos most slow days. if its this slow now, think of how slow it will be when its 60 below outside. Which is quite common windchills during the winter.
im back to $17,612 after a win of a few hundred on the VBJ tonight, and small poker win a mile down the road, and $80 in free play won which i turned into $47. got my name called twice while playing at the poker table, and congratulations to corey the dealer for making sure im logged in.
upcoming promotions (besides being drawn both fri and sat last week for a key to a 1-20 chance to win a new car (or $12,000) (both times i missed out being up the street playing poker) i hated missing that the value of being picked is worth $800 when u include the $200 in free play. i probably had more tickets than a lot of people did. and those drawings are every week.
up the street im in the barrel, (along with about 50 people total) for the nov 28 sun nite drawing where 5 people get $1000 each, and the only qualifiers are previous hot seat winners. so thats good odds if i stick in town longer.
then on NYE weekend, 1000 different players card members will get $500 each, and all the rest get $5-100 (about 25,000 plus others). every casino has lots of these drawing type promotions, and ive been called for various things about 6-10 times including being present and not being present this month so far. the actual games around town themselves arent so good, but the promotions certainly are.
---this was typed last night--still unfinished and not yet published because i didnt feel the post was long enough yet--before today. its now saturday morning, and was disappointed i wasnt called for a key this weekend. very few people in town this weekend due to snow and cold. is supposed to be 4 degrees tonight and warm up to 56 monday to melt the snow. at least the money is still slowly going back up, i am now over $17,700 with $333 more online Bovada.
i came to town with more however. still miss good old 24 hour NL. i need a place to live i can afford longterm and that will hasten getting me out of here. for the same prices flush draw pays but without anyone else living there.
i paid $50-70 a week hundreds of times the late 80s and early 90s to late 90s. 2003 i still paid $230 month plus utilities in Butte. would love to find that price near good poker action.
speaking of promotions, the mountain Grand sent me $10 free play today only, went by there to pick it up just now on foot, and it wasnt there and the employees knew nothing about it and said to print out the email and talk to them tomorrow. problem is i can no longer find it in trash folders.
