Riverboats here in the Southern Indiana area are reporting 100 million in profit a month. I know my wife and I use to go to Vegas 4 - 5 times a year. Now the convention is all I require. She hasn't been for over 2 years. We get our "FIX" from the boats. My wife is fairly lucky on the slots and you see a lot more hand pays than in Vegas. I agree that the Boat play is much more constant, but sometimes you see 3 or 4 waiting to be paid off.
Also, why is it that when playing Blackjack or Poker in Vegas the person sitting next to you is from New Jersey?
