Not a frequent player, but when I go in that area, I go to Horseshoe, because it is part of Harrah's and that is where I play when in Las Vegas.

I have been to ameristar in east chicago. It's maybe 20 mins from Horseshoe, but its less crouded and the odds to me are better there. But I have had luck at Horseshoe too in both table and slots.

The casino in Des Plaines should be opening int he middle of July.

I hit the one with fat out of shape security guard so I can rob them blind and/or poke fun at them.

You'd be F'ed then. Cause I'm no longer fat, out of shape or a security guard!

Horseshoe. It's closest to my house. I won $500 yesterday, craps. Was up $800 at one point.

If you live in the city the Horseshoe has a free bus from various points around town. All you need is one of their players club cards (they accept your D.L. or other ID if you say it's your first trip). I've used it several times to attend shows at the Venue. The only thing I don't like is the Indiana casinos still allow smoking.
One thing I have found is in the last few years no matter where you go...even Vegas, the slot machines are alot tighter than they used to be.

"Dirt is for racing on...Asphalt is for getting there" OR "Flat trackers go in deeper and come out harder... OR (With apologies to General MaCarthur) "Old motorcycle racers never die, they just slip off the groove and fade into the dust!

If you want to anger a conservative, tell him a lie. To anger a liberal all one must do is tell the truth!

10 mins way from work I guess I know where to go for lunch break. I wish I can bet for Pacman's fight on this Casino so I dont have to go to vegas...

I've already been to this casino 4 times. First time won $200. Next morning, lost $800. A few days later, won $1300. Last night, lost $300 (although I was up $500 at one point and was down $1300 at one point too).

Craps seem to be my game.
