Good answer Melody
wee mags
Mike and I often go to the casinos here .we go at least once every two or three months ,and let me tell you the one arm bandits are no more ,every thing is now computerized,you no longer get quarters back you get a slip of paper with your winnings that you turn in when you finish,not as much fun as the quarters . wink.gif this is the one we go to
www.mohegansun.com Ringo Starr is appearing there this week
annie laurie
Mags,
The Casinos have been like that for the past two years now here in B>C> Canada

I don't care for it, to quiet, i like the sound of the coins jingle when you win
I also heard that some of the slot machines are like that also in some of the Casino's in L>V.> :ll: as well

Have not been in a long time not the same thrill anymore for me, love L>V> though , dry.gif
wee mags
I bet that betty is having a rere time in Las Vegas!! I hope she gets a good win wink.gif also i wonder if Hubert met up with her?
CAT
I'm sure yer right Mags, Betty will be havin a ball ah jist better make sure ave got her stairs done fur her comin back biggrin.gif
When we go out for a night out in the city centre we always end up at the casino either the riverboat or the new Alea. We have been doing this for years and I have never once gamble a penny. It's much better than the pubs we girls can sit and have a wee refreshment and a chat without the music deafining ye and the boy's get £30- £40 to go off and play with. We went tae the Alea recently where they have dinner dance once a month it's in quite small intimate area with onle about 15 tables. The singer was fantastic and the food tae die for I recommend it tae anyone. For the smokers both casino's have balconies lookin out onto the clyde although the Alea should copy the Riverboat and put out some patio heaters it can get a wee bit chilliy in the winter but it's great in summer.
wee mags
sounds good to me Cat ,I got a wee fast call from Betty she arrived safe and sound [well as sound as she could be ]she said the weather there is too hot
wee mags
well Iam sure bettys on her way home today I wish her a safe journey ,and I bet she had a rere time biggrin.gif I hope she got at least a wee jackpot
CAT
On her way back already OMG ah better run roon wi a duster and get they stairs done fur her ladyships home comming. laugh.gif

" Aye Ma, am running out of towels" biggrin.gif
Avril

Elma
Yes, Betty welcome back, we are all waiting to hear about your trip and, of course, the winnings laugh.gif
Isobel
OK Betty you have had a good few hours now, get your butt in here and give us all your news. Oh and what about your winnings, how much.
betty2
Nice to know I was missed [must be daen summit right oan here] biggrin.gif

I mentioned in an earlier post I met Hubert and Anne , and mags youre right about him resembling Billy Connolly] and according to his lovely wife in more ways that one. But a real gentleman in every aspect. LAS vEGAS is a shoppers paradise so ah wis in ma element on that score. I,m definately going to make another trip back Hopefully at a future date after I have my knee fixed . Trying to get as much in as I could I knackered myself, but did manage qiete a bit of sightseeing. Took a tour down where it all started and then went on to lake mead for a champagne dinner cruise. that was very interesting and a superb meal. After 2 hours on the lake we then continued on to the hoover dam, another great sight. It was a wonderful experience hearing all the details that happened during the construction of the dam, also the towns we passed through en route .

Noo the winnins never won a fortune but in total around$450 and I walked away each time I was ahead, no bad fur an amateur eh.
Am still jetlagged But when I get my pics developed and I get my son to post them for me you can all see what a really wonderful time I had

Oh and by the way Elvis is no deid met him on the strip got ma photo took wae him he then sang suspicion minds tae me , and then charged me $20 couldnae move fur laffin, rolleyes.gif

Gonny huv tae lie doon again ma body clock is no back tae norm as of yet Thanks for the welcome back and to you Hubert THANK YOU for a lovely afternoon it was a pleasurev meeting you and Anne
Avril
It all sounds fabulous Betty biggrin.gif I cannae wait tae see your photos! Noo it's back doon tae earth wi' a bump...auld claes and porridge...it's your turn next for the stairs laugh.gif
stratson
Sounds like you had a great time, you sure packed a lot into your week.$450, well done girl, that should start off savings for your next trip. Would love to do it myself. biggrin.gif
betty2
Certainly did stratson, but as avril says back tae auld claes an porridge sad.gif so wherrs the bucket the stairs could be daen wae a wash, plenty o feet been trekkin up an doon them this while back. But ah,ll dae them with a smile on ma face. Still feelin high as a kite rolleyes.gif . Off tae the bingo this afternoon its eyes down look in .
jaybee
A wee bit late Betty, but welcome back. That was a great win you had. One of my travel plans is to go to Vegas, but somebody would have to take my bank card away from me. Not a good gambler, I would have a hard time walking away. Anyhoo, start saving, many more trips to come for you. Jaybee
hubert
It was grrrrrrreat meeting Betty2 and her wee cousin Jessie, nice company, and we had some good laughs.
We had oor lunch at the Rio international buffet, and the service was great, even Betty wae the sore knee got Jessie to get her ice crean and apple pie, nae bother, Betty sits very prim and proper when she gets served! LoL
We went out onto a triple play game of game of poker machine, Betty not only looked the pasrt but it didny take long, we kept changing the type of game, and the Dueces Wild wan, she gets three dueces dealt keeps them and the fourth came in, piece o cake, she soon cashed in on that machine, then at New York New York I saw her take oot $80 something, nae bother to Betty.
My wife Ann and I really enjoyed you and your cousins company, dont forget to let us know when your coming back!
betty2
Both Jess and me enjoyed youre company Hubert and I would,nt have won without youre expertice pal
