Got called for the casino drawing again tonight. Won $750 cash. That's about the 7th time in the last two months. I really am wondering if they're throwing it for me.
They announce the players called over the casino PA system and I just walk over when I hear my name (Risky Biz) but a crowd of people always gather right where it's being called. It's often always the same people. They're starting to look at me funny.
I won a little over $200 more playing VP.
Seriously, something to consider. First of all, congrats on your win. That's exciting. But consider this. Maybe you should lay off that casino, that drawing, or both, for maybe six months or so. Just think about it.

Because people complain. It might come to the attention of management. They might decide you're too good for them. Out of sight, out of mind. The same with hitting a few really big royals close together. Stay under the radar, you may wear out your welcome. If you don't care if they kick you out, then by all means, blow 'em out, hammer them. But if it's one of your own little pumpkin patches and you want to keep it that way, stay away for awhile when you've been really hot.

That happened at Station but all they did was remove my 'invited guest' status which means no mailer, no twice-monthly dining coupons, no point multiplier days, no VIP parking. So I make a point of just taking their money now and never spending a penny there. I was barred at Red Rock but that wasn't related to my win balance or advantage play.

~ What the fuck happened? I don't remember you mentioning that. That's fucked up. Stations is a dozen places to play, if Fiesta and Texas comes back. Plus the Wild Fire group. Oh, that's fucked up. At least they didn't 86 you. Stations has been a big disappointment. They've really turned on the screws.

I told you about that. I was 86'ed but only from the Red Rock property. I was specifically told it was only that property and they even gave me the security director's card and said I could discuss it further with him. I never bothered. I was President's Club tier at that time so I think that made a difference.

What was the reason for the ejection? And what was the name of the security
director then? I had a big problem with the head of security at Boulder
station, and I know he moved on, but can’t remember if it was to Red Rock.
That guy was beyond dumb.

I don't care to discuss the reason and I don't recall the name of the guy. I still have the card somewhere. What was the name of the guy you're referring to?

I think it was Armando something or other - Hispanic name and accent, but
dumb as a rock. I parked a motorcycle - with a handicap plate - off to the
side of the handicap spot so a car could also park there. His morons actually
put a fucking chain on my rear wheel. If I hadn’t seen it, it would have
thrown me off the bike when I rode off. But what seemed to have really pissed
him off was that I threw a citation on the ground. I met with him and the GM,
and got nowhere. He liked things “looking neat and orderly”, and bikes
parked outside of marked parking spaces offended him.

I've never been in Boulder Station. I've heard it was a dump- from someone that used to work there. And you cruised over on a motorcycle? Are you a Hells Angel?

I worked with one... I also had to deal, as the board president, with an HA
who owned a place in my community, especially after the place turned into an
HA clubhouse. It took some... let’s say delicate, interactions. Luckily,
they are smart enough to not do really dumb stuff over minor squabbles.
