HARVEST ADVENTURES FROM AN ADDICTED CHIP COLLECTOR

BY RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER
SOME PEOPLE HAVE COMPULSIONS TO GAMBLE, SOME TO AMASS FORTUNES AND OTHER’S, WELL THEY JUST LIKE TO WRITE STORIES. YEAH, THAT WOULD BE ME. I HAVE ALWAYS LIKED TO WRITE, NEVER WAS VERY GOOD AT IT; BUT I HAVE DONE IT OVER THE YEARS JUST THE SAME.
IF ANY OF YOU WANT ANY INSIDE INFORMATION ON ANY CASINO THAT I’VE BEEN TO, I WOULD BE HAPPY TO TELL YOU WHAT I KNOW.

PERSONAL HARVESTING STORIES

RED EARTH CASINO SALTON CITY, CALIFORNIA

By:RICHARD “REGGIE” GUMMER

SHORTLY AFTER THIS CASINO OPENED UP NANCY AND I PLANNED A TRIP TO THIS CASINO BY GOING THE BACK WAY FROM SAN DIEGO THOUGH JULIAN AND ANZA BOREGO. MANY YOU NOT FAMILIAR WITH SAN DIEGO COUNTY PROBABLY DO NOT HAVE A CLUE OF WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. IT IS VERY CLOSE TO THE SALTON SEA ON THE MAP.
WHEN WE GOT THERE ALL WE COULD SEE IS A GAS STATION. THEY DID NOT HAVE THEIR SIGNAGE UP YET.
WE WENT IN AND SIGNED UP FOR PLAYERS CARDS, FOUND OUT THEY WOULD NOT SELL CHIPS THOUGH THE CASHIERS CAGE. THAT MEANT GOING TO THE TABLES AND TALKING TO THE PIT BOSS. SO I DID, MEANTIME NANCY WAS LOADING UP ON GRAND OPENING FREEBIES; THE MOST MEMORABLE WAS A RED EARTH FLY SWATTER. (WE STILL USE IT ON OCCASION) AFTER A FEW MINUTES WITH THE PIT BOSS IT WAS CLEAR HE WOULD HELP US OUT WITH WHAT EVER WE WANTED. HE WAS QUITE RESOURCEFUL, HE EXPLAINED; WE DO NOT HAVE THE KIND OF CHIP INVENTORY LIKE FANTASY SPRINGS DOWN THE ROAD HAS. SO, I WILL TAKE A FEW FROM EACH OF THE EIGHT TABLES; THAT THEY HAD OPEN.
SINCE, THIS WAS A NEW CASINO IN CALIFORNIA I WAS PRETTY SURE I DID NOT GET ENOUGH CHIPS ON THIS INITIAL VISIT. I WAS CORRECT, I MADE ABOUT TWO VISITS OVER THE YEARS. I HAVE ENOUGH CHIPS NOW.…REGGIE
