Las Vegas Trip

Published by Lucky Dog under Casinos, Slots.

A lot has changed since the last time I was in Vegas almost 30 years ago. The hotels are bigger, but the party atmosphere is still the same. We stayed at the Tuscany Resort & Casino, which is about a quarter mile from Bally’s on Flamingo Road. We visited 24 casinos and many of the […]

Indian Casino Action

Published by Lucky Dog under Casinos, Indian Casinos, Minnesota, Wisconsin.

Indian Casinos in Wisconsin and Minnesota seem to be doing well. Most are expanding and adding more attractions this year. Unfortunately, that means they are still collecting our hard earned money in exchange for less than expected payouts. Reaching the bonus round on a slot machine used to mean a nice $100+ payout. Now the […]

The 2013 horse racing season is only about six weeks away here in Minnesota. ┬áCanterbury Park has it’s first race scheduled for May 17, 2013. I can’t say that the start of the 2013 gaming season for me has been very good so far. I’ve been to the casino about four times and only recall […]

Mystic Slots

Published by Lucky Dog under Casinos, Indian Casinos, Minnesota.

Mystic Lake Casino is known for having some of the tightest slots in the state. But, if you go there as often as I do, you can start to find the machines that payout more often. But, don’t get your hopes up. You will still be lucky if you break even. They couldn’t afford to […]

Grand Casino Hinckley

Published by Lucky Dog under Casinos, Indian Casinos, Minnesota.

We went to check out the Grand Casino in Hinckely, MN this weekend. I had heard that it was easier to win at this casino than some of the others in Minnesota, but that wasn’t the case for us. It’s just like any other casino, if you play long enough, you are going to loose […]

Mystic Lake Derby

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing, Indian Casinos, Minnesota.

This Saturday I was at Canterbury Park for the first running of the Mystic Lake Derby. There was a seven horse field looking to take the $150,000 purse. It was a very close match and extremely hard to pick a winner. Unfortunately, there was a dispute between the 1st and 2nd place horses. The replay […]
