Superfecta Wagering

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

My new favorite bet is the 10 cent superfecta box. Picking the top four horses out of a group of six or eight is a challenge that can payoff quite well. The cost for this wager is $2.40, not much more than a $2 win bet. Sometimes I will bump up the wager to 50 […]

Belmont Stakes 2013

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

It seems pointless to analyze the results of a horse race, because you can’t place a post-race bet. The outcome of every race if different, even if you ran the same horses in back to back races. But, it may help you figure out where your thinking was wrong and maybe help you place better […]

Bet Canterbury

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

For the 2013 horse racing I set up an online wagering account at Canterbury Park. I’m using a Samsung galaxy tablet with a 7 inch screen. It only works over wifi when you are at the track, but it sure makes placing bets easier. I found that it works better in some locations than others. […]

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

The 2013 horse racing season is only about six weeks away here in Minnesota.  Canterbury 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 […]

This past week my girlfriend and I visited the North Star Casino in Bowler, WI. This is a 1200 slot facility with table games, poker, and bingo. They also have a 97 room hotel and 4 restaurants. We stayed overnight at the hotel, which is only a few years old, so it is still very […]

High 5 Casino

Published by Lucky Dog under Slots.

Another Facebook slot game that I recently discovered is High 5 Casino. This one wasn’t around during my last post, but has quickly become one of my favorites. Every slot game is an authentic replica of the IGT machines that you find in real casinos.  Currently, they have 19 games that can be unlocked and […]

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 […]

Night Racing

Published by Lucky Dog under Horse Racing.

The 2012 horse racing season is almost at a close here in Minnesota. On Friday night, my girlfriend and I went to the track to test our horse picking skills. We don’t usually go to night sessions, which run from 7pm to 10:45 pm, but decided to see what it was like under the lights. […]
