Potentially the next DKNG. $BALY

Palantir and EV Stocks are a surefire ticket to Yolo, Tendietown but there are some other WSB ignored stocks making moves right now.
Recently Bally's Corp (Owner of establishes casinos such as twin River Casino Hotel, Hard Rock Biloxi, Tiverton Casino Hotel, Dover Downs, and Mile High USA) inked a deal 10 year deal with Sinclair Broadcasting and separately purchased online sports betting operatotech stack for $100million.
In this 10 year deal all of Sinclair's Regional Sports Networks will receive the Bally's Brand. Sinclair receives warrants to purchase up to 30% of Bally's stock. This deal will enable live sports betting in real time through a reputable operator while the game is being broadcast as well as during commercial breaks.
Imagine you're in your wife's boyfriend's basement, watching the college you didn't get accepted to playing the college you dropped out of. During a commercial break you see the lines plus potentially a prop bet and with the bally's app on your phone you're able to place the bet and have a reason to stay awake for the 2nd half of the game.
This could be a bigger opportunity than even draft kings as it won't be limited to daily fantasy sports but allow for direct sports betting.
Since the news the stock has rallied 60% but has pulled back recently potentially presenting a buying opportunity.
This news is only a few days old but analysts who have updated guidance are looking at $55-$65 price targets once the market digests what this deal can mean.
As state budget's try to survive the upcoming pandemic related hangovers, expect more and more sports betting legislation to pass and this Ballys+Sinclair partnership has a nearly unmatchable reach in terms of audience reach.
Shares + $45 12/18 Calls

What is your wildest night at a Casino playing poker?

Mine was at Hollywood Casino in Tunica, Mississippi. December 2004.
I checked into the Grand Casino RV Park and caught a shuttle to the Hollywood Casino. I heard the poker room was the best. It was that night. I won about ??K over the course of the night.
I sat down at a 4/8 LH table with $200. I had gotten that up to $600 and drew pocket 77. Everyone was folding but a lady at the end of the table did a Max raise. I called. The flop was 778. Same lady, max bet. I called. Turn junk. Same lady max bet. I max raised her and she called. River A. She max bet and I max raised her and she raised back. We were both all in. She turned over pocket 8's. I showed and the dealer pushed the stack over to me.
She started yelling and told the dealer to hold on until she could absorb it. Then she started calling me a cheater and the dealer a cheater and started yelling and pushing chairs around and standing up shaking her fists. The pit boss called security and they escorted her out of the poker room. I was shaking. The dealer was shaking. The boss halted play until they could look at the video. After 30 minutes the Boss pushed the stack to my spot and told me "Good Hand!" My $200 was now $1600.
I took a break to smoke and started playing a $5 Three Hand Jacks or Better slot machine right out side the card room. Second play I lined up 4 aces with a two on the bottom row. Hold all, hit deal and won 6K. 2K each line.
Went back in and sat in on a 10/20 NL with a $1000 buy-in. I hit everything I played for 11 hands. Then I coasted when it cooled off. There was one player with a bigger stack than me and I tangled with him a couple times until he shook his finger at me and said "I am staying away from you." He was a gruff looking player with a thick Brooklyn accent. Very aggressive. Several hands later a player complained openly about his play. He said OK and asked the boss to come to the table. He told the boss to move that player to another table because the player didn't like his play. The other player was moved.
We took a break and the Brooklyn player stepped out for a smoke. A SWAT team of some kind took the guy down and put him in handcuffs and took him away. A guy in a suit came up to the table and put the guy's belongings in a bag and took them away. I never found out why. My winnings were now over 10K Cash and a 6K coupon.
The table broke up and I stepped out to smoke at my favorite slot machine. I was loaded the bets up and I hit a 9 high straight club flush on the bottom row. Press Hold all, press deal, 8K per row. 24K over all. I put the coupon in my pocket.
I went back to the card room and sat down at a 100/200 NLH and did real well but noticed I was faltering. I was drinking and I think I reached my limit. :) I noticed it was 2 AM so I cashed out my coupons at the Cashier and pocketed close to 50K. This had never happened before. I had some good nights at casinos in general but this was my best night ever.
I went to the front of the casino and found out my shuttle back to the RV park was gone and did not run the rest of the night. I asked a Concierge about getting a ride back to the Park and he said he couldn't help me there.
So, there I was with all that cash in my pocket. I was standing in the atrium and the room started spinning. I started noticing people hiding behind the columns out front. I saw people crouching behind the bushes and I remembered that woman from the earlier table and I freaked out.
I ran to the hotel desk and asked if they had a room and told them what was going on....I gave them my players card and they comped me a suite and had security escort me up to it.
I put my winnings in the room safe and passed out on the bed. I woke up to the front desk calling my room to ask if I wanted to stay another night because it was check out time and an RV shuttle was down stairs.
I grabbed my money from the safe and checked out. I took a shower when I got back to the RV and started it up and headed to Biloxi, Mississippi. I heard there was a great tournament there that weekend. :)
I spread some of my winnings out to close friends for Christmas then I coasted on the rest until I caught a Software gig in the PNW about May 2005.
I haven't topped that yet and I'm now 67.

Friend's Nmom

Today I've been thinking a lot about not only my parental trauma, but the abuse I suffered at the hands of my childhood "best friend" and her mother. I kinda just feel like getting this off my chest...
So this girl and I met when we were about three years old. Our moms worked in the same place, and as soon as we were old enough, about five, we started to hang out on a regular basis. I didn't realize her mother was insane until I was nuch older, but the extent of neglect both myself and her daughter experienced haunts me to this day. Her mother was/is a hoarder, of both objects and cats. I remember visiting her house and it was packed in all corners with things. Usually it was house decor that her mother swore she'd put up some day, only to return it to the store a week later and claim she lost the reciept in order to get store credit/a refund. This was on top of uncleaned cat waste and fur. They also had an old chihuahua who scratched herself raw with fleas and anxiety. This woman literally only fed that dog mcdonald's burgers and fries, and to them it was completely normal. Whenever I stayed the night, I couldn't leave my friend's bedroom, and going four feet to the bathroom was always a struggle. If we opened the door to go across the hall she'd yell at us from the living room. What's more, her hoarding meant that random stuff was always in the way, so closing the bathroom door was often impossible. Oh, and god forbid I attempted to go into the kitchen for some food. She'd hear us no matter how quiet we were, and order us to go back to the room. She always said she'd make us something, but of course she never did. Usually it was me asking for food, and I never understood why my friend "wasn't hungry." I know now that it was because she was used to eating maybe once or twice a day. This woman would almost exclusively eat out, and when she didn't have the money to (which was most times), she'd do two things: (a) Buy a gift card and then use it at the restaurant, or (b) Pretend that she'd "lost" a coupon/gift card her husband gave her, and get a free meal. She'd do this for things like getting into water parks, movie theaters, hotel pools, and so on. When I'd stay at her house, she'd chain smoke for hours in the garage, or drink on the couch and watch trashy tv. We weren't allowed to go into the garage or living room for this reason. This woman schemed with her daughter to humiliate me, too. I remember vividly one time when I was seven. We were in the lazy river at a hotel, and they thought it would be funny to untie my bathing suit top and then hide. My top had been partially off for probably some time before I realized that I couldn't find them. I remember turning around and seeing them come out from behind a palm tree, laughing hysterically. I was confused until I noticed the state of things. So there I was, seven years old, struggling in the water because I couldn't have been over four feet, and being publicly laughed at my my best friend and her psycho mother.
You might think that's the end of it, but oh no. On my 13th birthday weekend they took me to the Biloxi Beau Rivage. I thought we were gonna have a good time. Yeah, no. Her dad drove us, and for reference, he'd always been the more level headed of the two. This comes in handy later. So we get there pretty late at night, and I don't remember getting to the room and falling asleep. The next day her mother leaves us with no room key to wander the hotel. She then goes down to the casino for what I thought was going to be a reasonable amount of time. Well, her mother ended up disappearing to gamble and get drunk from probably 10-11 am to 4 pm that day. My friend and I were having fun the first few hours. We met some random boys our age and walked the halls with them for a while, and then went to do our own thing. Now, there's literally nothing for two unsupervised 13 year olds to do, right? We walked the lobby, rode the elevator a nauseating amount of times, talked to strangers, and even got trapped at the top floor stairwell. In February. With shorts on. Why we weren't dressed for the weather was beyond me. Going down 32 flights of stairs freezing my ass off in flip flops is something I never want to do again. Mind you, this girl's parents hadn't fed us more than McDonald's since 6 pm the previous night. By the time noon rolled around we'd done all that and still hadn't eaten. I was so desperate that I was about to start asking strangers for money. Her dad, who'd apparently been trying to drag her mother out of the casino for hours, finally appeared. He was generous enough to buy me a muffin and a soda for me and my friend to share. That night her mother was so drunk that I heard her sobbing in the bath, followed by me waking up again to her and her husband arguing at 2 am. I got hissed at to go back to sleep despite my best efforts to look like I wasn't awake. The next day her mother did the same thing, and we ended up leaving to drive back home after this woman had jumped out of the car, sat on a bench, drunk-argued with her husband, and was finally coerced back into the vehicle.
Another thing that happened, happened pretty early on. My friend and I had to have been four or five. We were left unsupervised in her mother's bedroom, and we decided to get into the makeup. Arguably we did get lipstick on the entire bathroom and ourselves, but it's not like we had the brain capacity to do differently. We were kids, for crying out loud. Well, her mother finds us and FLIPS out. I was ordered to go into the living room and wait to be punished. It was terrifying to the core for little me to hear my friend being beaten just down the hall. I knew I was in for it when her mother came for me, next. I'm sure you can guess where this is going. I don't actually remember being beaten, but I do remember shaking on the couch afterwards; my head buried into one of the cushions as I tried to keep my sobs quiet. I didn't even tell my parents until 14 years later, just this past year. My mother was understandably furious, but at the time, I thought it was normal.
Another scenario was super odd, and I still don't remember exactly what we were doing. I was four or five, and her mom had taken us to a random man's apartment. Apparently he was super rich, and her mother and another adult woman were putting his things into trash bags. I remember thinking, what am I doing here? My friend and I found a briefcase of what I now assume to be drugs, and were looking through it when her mother noticed and had the briefcase taken away. The next thing I remember was walking through a parking lot at night, tired and carrying a heavy trash bag.
She and her mom would often show up at my house unannounced and make me go hang out. This had been going on for my whole life, so I didn't actually realize I could say no. If they came to the door and told me "we're going to xyz" I would just go, no matter what other plans I had. Later on, they'd sneak through the back gate into my backyard, and then scare me by peeking through the windows or knocking on the back door while I was sitting at the computer. Another time, I let them come in when my parents weren't home, and this woman went to my parents bedroom to rifle through their things. She then emerged wearing a personal item that belonged to my parents, and paraded around the house with it as if it were a joke. I also remember her being super weird in general. Like, she'd drive me and her daughter around all night and stop at either a wal mart or target to search theough the parking lot for either abandoned jewelry, or reciepts that the intended to return for store credit. Seriouslty. At 11 pm, as my parents are furiously calling ME (she didn't have a cell phone) and demanding I come back home.
One of the more gross times was when I asked to stay the night. They both said that they had a flea problem because of the cats, and I thought "how bad could it be? a few fleas aren't a problem." I end up getting there and I kid you not, my friend had a gag DEAD FLEA BOWL in her room. Like, a half way full bowl of fleas that she'd individually killed and put in there. And there were STILL like thousands more. The bed wasn't safe, the floor was disgusting, and I immediately asked to go home. Needless to say I got a verbal beating, but thankfully my mother came through and picked me up that night. This lady also had a terrible cat hoarding habit, to the point where cats were actively breeding with their siblings, and occasionally eating each other in the house. They'd like, wake up and find dead cats in the house. It was awful, but I'm grateful I never had to witness it. I also remember her mother making me stay awake during a night I slept over by blasting gross youtube videos and keeping the lights on, while I pretty much cowered and begged for them to let me go to sleep.
This woman also probably kidnapped me once. So my friend texts me around 5 pm one night. She says that her parents are taking us somewhere special. My parents were not aware that this would be anything more than like, a trip to the movies, or the local outlets. So her dad picks me up and drives me to his house, where my friend and her mom are loading the car. I was confused as to what was happening, but I go along with it. By the time we're on the road it's dark, and we're on out way to drop her dad off somewhere. I didn't know it at the time but we dropped him off at a greyhound racing center to play poker (??). My friend's mom then continues driving. At this point I'm tired and anxious, but both of them literally will not tell me where we're going. Hours pass and we get to a city 65 miles away from home. It's 2 am. She told me we'd be doing all this fun stuff, but all we ended up doing was getting burger king and driving the 2 hours back home. Towards the end my dad calls and is berating me for being out so late. He was furious, not only at me, but at this crazy woman who basically kidnapped me and drove me around a random city all night.
I also remember her mother telling me a detailed account of the time her own father tried to end his life, and how she saved him by pouring scalding coffee down his throat. I had no idea whyy she was telling me this, as I was only 13 and it was wildly uncalled for.
By the time her daughter and I got into high school, it was apparent that not only was she crazy, but my best friend/her daughter was too. She turned former friends against me, completely ignored me when I tried to talk to her, made fun of me and other people in the friend group relentlessly, and got other people to be her friend in order to make me feel bad for having friends other than her. She publicly embarassed me about things I could not change. My teeth, the way my body looked (called me fat on my 16th birthday)-- even the way I drank water. She deprived me of learning how real friendships should have been. She and her mother formed a team against me, and it was like they lived to make me feel inferior. I wish I hadn't been manipulated into keeping these horrible experiences from my parents. I wish they'd never gained access to me; a vulnerable three year old. It makes me sick to think that this woman targeted me before I was old enough for f-ing preschool, and decided to make the next 13 years of my life a nightmare any chance she could get...
If you've made it this far, thank you for reading. Some memories I haven't even told my parents. Others are buried in my subconscious. Some days I pray for my friend. I watched her grow into a toxic young woman right in front of me, and it pains me deeper than the abuse ever could. If she could read this I'd tell her that I'm so sorry for what happened. She endured so much more than I know, and quite frankly, never had a chance given that her family was beoken from the beginning. I pray that even though we haven't spoken in years, I hope we both heal from the terrible neglect and verbal abuse suffered at the hands of her mother.
That is all...

List of Las Vegas Casinos that Never Opened

List of Las Vegas casinos that never opened
Over the years there have been several casinos and resorts planned for the Las Vegas Valley that never opened. The stages of planning may have been just an announcement or groundbreaking.[1][2][3]
Asia Resort and Casino
Where the Palazzo Casino and Resort currently stands (adjacent to the Venetian Hotel and Casino and the Sands Expo and Convention Center), an Asian themed casino was proposed but was rejected for the present Palazzo project.[4]
Alon Las Vegas
A proposed luxury hotel and casino located on the Las Vegas Strip on the former site of the New Frontier Hotel and Casino, announced in 2015.[5] The project was put in doubt after Crown Resorts announced in late 2016 it was suspending its involvement in the development.[6] Crown announced in December 2016 that it was halting the project and seeking to sell its investment. The remaining partner Andrew Pascal announced he was seeking other partners to proceed with the project. However in May 2017, the land went up for sale.[7] The land was later purchased by Steve Wynn.
Beau Rivage
Steve Wynn, who had purchased and demolished the Dunes hotel-casino, had originally planned to build a modern hotel in the middle of a man-made lake. He later built the Bellagio with a man-made lake in the front of the hotel.[citation needed] The name was later used by Wynn for a resort built in Biloxi, Mississippi.
Caribbean Casino
In 1988, a sign for a proposed casino was erected on a fenced vacant lot on Flamingo Road. Standing near the sign was a scale model galleon. For several years, that was all that stood on the property. The empty lot was the source of many jokes by the locals until the ship, which was later damaged by a fire started by a homeless person, was torn down in the 1990s and the lot became the site of the Tuscany Suites and Casino co-owned by Charles Heers, who has owned the property since the 1960s.[8]
In 1990, the Radisson group proposed a 3,376-room hotel next to the Dunes, with a casino shaped like a Hershey's Kiss.[9]
A proposed resort that was to have been built on the site of El Rancho Vegas. The parcel is now partially taken by the Hilton Grand Vacations Club and Las Vegas Festival Grounds.[4]
City by the Bay Resort and Casino
A San Francisco-themed resort was proposed for the site of the New Frontier Hotel and Casino. The project was rejected in favor of the Swiss-themed Montreux, which was also eventually cancelled.[4]
Countryland USA
A country music-themed resort was planned for construction of the site of the former El Rancho Hotel and Casino. For some years, the El Rancho sign stood with the words "Coming Soon - Future Home of Countryland USA."[10][11]
Craig Ranch Station
Main article: Craig Ranch Station A Mediterranean-themed hotel-casino for North Las Vegas, proposed by Station Casinos in March 2000.[12] The project faced opposition from nearby residents,[13][14][15] which led to the proposed location being changed to a vacant property on the nearby Craig Ranch Golf Course.[16] Residential opposition to the new location led to the project being rejected by the Nevada Gaming Policy Committee in March 2001. Station Casinos still had the option to develop the project on the initial site,[17][18] but the project was cancelled entirely in July 2001, following a weak financial quarter for the company.[19]
Crown Las Vegas
Main article: Crown Las Vegas Formerly known as Las Vegas Tower, the Crown Las Vegas was to have been a supertall skyscraper built on the former site of a Wet 'n Wild water park. In March 2008, the project was canceled and the property was put up for sale.[20]
Desert Kingdom
In 1993, ITT Sheraton purchased the Desert Inn casino, and had announced plans to develop the large parking lot into a Balinese themed resort to complement the Desert Inn. The project was never developed and the site is now the location of Wynn Las Vegas.[4]
DeVille Casino
After building the Landmark Hotel and Casino on Convention Center Drive and selling it to Howard Hughes, developer Frank Carroll built the DeVille Casino across the street from the Landmark at 900 Convention Center Drive in 1969. Chips were made for the casino (and are sought-after collectibles), but the casino never opened.[21] The building was renovated in 1992 as a race book parlor named Sport of Kings which closed after nine months.[22] It became the location of The Beach nightclub, which was demolished in 2007 to make room for a planned 600-unit tower[23] that was never built.[24] The land sits currently empty.
Echelon Place
Main article: Echelon Place An announced project by Boyd Gaming planned to have a hotel built on the property of the former Stardust Resort & Casino. Construction was suspended on August 1, 2008 due to the Great Recession. In March 2013, Boyd Gaming sold the proposed site for $350 million to the Genting Group, which is redeveloping the project as the Asian-themed Resorts World Las Vegas.
Fontainebleau Las Vegas
Main article: The Drew Las Vegas Located on the Las Vegas Strip and originally known as Fontainebleau Las Vegas. Construction began in 2007, and the resort was to include a casino, 2,871 hotel rooms, and 1,018 condominium units.[25] Construction on the $2.9 billion project ceased in 2009, the year of its planned opening. Investment firms Witkoff Group and New Valley LLC purchased the unfinished resort in 2017.[26] In 2018, Witkoff and Marriott International announced a partnership to open the renamed project as The Drew Las Vegas in 2020. The resort will include a casino and three hotels totaling nearly 4,000 rooms, with the condominium aspect removed from the project.[27]
Harley-Davidson Hotel and Casino
A resort themed after the motorcycle manufacturer Harley-Davidson was proposed, complete with hotel towers shaped like gigantic exhaust pipes, but was never built.[4]
Jockey Club Casino
The Jockey Club is a condominium and timeshare resort at 3700 Las Vegas Boulevard South. It was planned to have a casino, and chips were made for its use, but the casino was never opened.[28]
Kactus Kate's
By April 1994, Gold Coast Hotel and Casino owner Michael Gaughan was interested in building a hotel-casino in North Las Vegas,[29] at the northeast corner of North Rancho Drive and Carey Avenue. In January 1995, the city planning commission approved the rezoning of the land for use as a hotel-casino. The resort, to be named Kactus Kate's, would be built by Gold Coast Hotel/Casino Limited. The hotel would include 450 rooms, and the casino would be 105,000 sq ft (9,800 m2),[30] later decreased to 102,000 sq ft (9,500 m2).[31] The resort would be located directly north of the nearby Fiesta and Texas Station resorts.[31]
In December 1998, Coast Resorts, Inc. received approval from the planning commission for a use-permit relating to the undeveloped property. In November 2000, the planning commission unanimously approved a two-year extension on the permit, giving the company more time to decide whether it would build Kactus Kate's. Because of a 1999 Senate bill that placed restrictions on casinos in neighborhoods, Coast Resorts had a deadline of 2002 to build the casino. The hotel would measure over 100 feet (30 m) high, and Coast Resorts was required to notify the Federal Aviation Administration of its final plans, due to the site being located less than 1,000 feet (300 m) from a runway at the North Las Vegas Airport.[32] In January 2001, Station Casinos purchased the 29-acre (12 ha) site for $9 million. Coast Resorts president Harlan Braaten said, "As we saw the competitive nature of that area intensify, in terms of the size of competing facilities, we just felt we would have to build something much bigger than we had intended to compete with Texas Station and Santa Fe Station. It was just going to be a very expensive project, and we didn't feel the returns would be that good." Station Casinos planned to sell the property as a non-gaming site.[31]
Las Vegas Plaza
Main article: Las Vegas Plaza Not to be confused with the Plaza Hotel & Casino.
This was to have been modeled after the Plaza Hotel in New York City. The project was announced shortly before the demolition of the New Frontier Hotel and Casino, where the new hotel would be built. Las Vegas Plaza was cancelled in 2011 due to the Great Recession.
London Resort and Casino
This announced project was to have been themed around the city of London, and featuring replicas of the city's landmarks. The project was to be built on land across from the Luxor Hotel and Casino. A second London-themed resort was to be built on the former land of the El Rancho Hotel and Casino. Neither project ever began construction.[4]
London, Las Vegas
This was a proposed three-phase project using London as its design inspiration. When completed, the 38.5-acre (15.5 ha) property would have featured 1,300 hotel rooms, a casino, a 500-foot-tall (152.4 m) observation wheel named Skyvue (partially constructed), and 550,000 square feet (51,097 square meters) of restaurants and shops — all of which would be architectural replicas of various British landmarks and neighborhoods.[33] The project was to be constructed on land across from the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip, where — as of November 2019 — the partially-constructed Skyvue still stands. The wheel was to be "Phase I of London, Las Vegas".
Montreux Resort
This Swiss-themed resort was to have been built on the property of the former New Frontier Hotel and Casino, but was ultimately cancelled.[34]
Moon Resort and Casino
Proposed by Canadian developer Michael Henderson, this is a planned 10,000-room, 250-acre (1.0 km2) lunar-themed casino resort.[35] Gaming experts doubt it will ever be built in Las Vegas, simply because the space planned for it is too large for the Las Vegas Strip.[4]
NevStar 2000
Further information: Craig Ranch Station § NevStar 2000 Proposed by NevStar Gaming in 1998, the NevStar 2000 entertainment complex in North Las Vegas would have included a hotel and casino,[36] but the project faced opposition from nearby residents who did not want a casino in the area.[37][38] The project was cancelled when NevStar Gaming filed for bankruptcy in December 1999.[12]
North Coast/Boyd Gaming project
In May 2003, Coast Casinos had plans for the North Coast hotel-casino, to be built at the southwest corner of Centennial Parkway and Lamb Boulevard in North Las Vegas. The project would be built on approximately 40 acres (16 ha) of vacant land, surrounded by other land that was also undeveloped. At the time, the North Las Vegas Planning Commission was scheduled to review requests for zoning changes and approvals for the project. The project was not scheduled to be built for at least another four years, after completion of a highway interchange at Lamb Boulevard and the nearby Interstate 15, as well as the completion of an overpass over nearby railroad tracks. Bill Curran, an attorney for the land owner, said, "We're going through the zoning changes now so everybody knows what's going to be out there." The North Coast would include a casino, a 10-story hotel with 398 rooms, a bowling alley, movie theaters, and a parking garage.[39] In June 2003, the Planning Commission voted 6 to 1 to approve preliminary applications necessary to begin work on the North Coast.[40][41]
Boyd Gaming, the owner of Coast Casinos, announced in February 2006 that it would purchase the 40-acre site for $35 million.[42] Jackie Gaughan and Kenny Epstein were the owners at the time.[43] Boyd Gaming had not decided on whether the new project would be a Coast property or if it would be similar to the company's Sam's Town hotel-casino. At the time, no timetable was set for building the project.[42] In March 2007, the project was put on hold. At the time, Boyd Gaming had been securing construction permits for the project but decided to first review growth in the area. Construction had been scheduled to begin in mid-2007.[44] In August 2013, Boyd Gaming sold the undeveloped property for $5.15 million.[43]
Palace of the Sea Resort and Casino
This was to have been built on the former Wet 'n Wild waterpark site. Conceptual drawings included yacht-shaped towers that housed suites, a casino resembling the Sydney Opera House and a 600-foot (180 m) tall Ferris wheel-type attraction dubbed a "Sky Wheel". It never left the planning stages.[4]
Paramount Las Vegas
A casino and hotel and condo resort with more than 1,800 units that was planned by Royal Palms Las Vegas, a subsidiary of Royal Palms Communities.[45][46] The project was to replace the Klondike Hotel and Casino at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip,[47][45] beside the Las Vegas welcome sign.[48] The resort was approved in October 2006,[45] but an investor pulled out of the project in August 2007, and the land was put up for sale in May 2008.[46]
Pharoah's Kingdom
Pharoah's Kingdom was planned as a $1.2 billion gaming, hotel and theme park complex to be built on 710 acres (290 ha) at Pebble Road and Las Vegas Boulevard, five miles south of the Las Vegas Strip.[49][1] Construction was approved in October 1988,[49] with Silano Development Group as the developer.[50]
The project would have an Egyptian theme, including two 12-story pyramids made of crystal, with each containing 300 suites. The hotel would have a total of 5,000 rooms,[50] making it the largest in the world.[51] The 230,000 sq ft (21,000 m2) casino would include 100 table games and 3,000 slot machines, while an RV park, mini-golf, a bowling alley, and a video game arcade would be located beside the casino area.[52] Three of the project's various pyramid structures would house the 50-acre (20 ha) family theme park. Other features would include sphinxes, man-made beaches, waterways resembling the Nile river, an underwater restaurant, a 24-hour child-care facility, a 100-tenant shopping promenade, and a repertory-style theater that would be overseen by actor Jack Klugman.[52] Additionally, the resort would feature an 18-hole PGA Championship golf course,[52] and a monorail located within the theme park.[50] The project would have one mile of frontage along Las Vegas Boulevard.[52]
Frank Gambella, president of the project, stated that financing was in place, with groundbreaking planned for March or April 1989. Gambella said the project would be financed by several entities, with the money coming from a Nevada corporation, suggesting the entities would be grouped together as an umbrella corporation. Gambella stated that the project could be opened by Labor Day 1990. The resort was expected to employ 8,000 people. Following the completion of the resort, Gambella said a complex of 750 condominiums would be built on the land along with 900 retirement-care apartments.[52]
The project was cancelled shortly after it was announced, as authorities became suspicious of developer Anthony Silano's fundraising efforts for the project. It was discovered that Silano and his associates hacked into the Switzerland bank accounts of Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos following his death in 1989. Silano pleaded guilty to federal conspiracy charges. Another Egyptian-themed resort, Luxor Las Vegas, would open on the south Las Vegas Strip in 1993.[1]
Planet Hollywood Resort (original plans)
Not to be confused with the current Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino.
Originally planned to open in the late 1990s on the site of the Desert Inn, it was to be one of the largest hotels in Las Vegas. Because of the bankruptcy of Planet Hollywood Restaurants, the hotel was never built. However, in the 2000s, a group of investors bought the new Aladdin Hotel and Casino and remodeled it with a modern Hollywood theme.[4]
Playboy Hotel and Casino
A proposed casino resort themed after Playboy magazine was rejected in favor of a nightclub and suites built at the top two floors of the new Palms tower.[4] The planned location for the Playboy Hotel and Casino, on the Las Vegas Strip, was later used for the Cosmopolitan resort.[53]
Santa Fe Valley
Main article: Santa Fe Valley Santa Fe Gaming, which owned the Santa Fe hotel-casino in northwest Las Vegas, had plans for a second Santa Fe property in 1996.[54] The Santa Fe Valley would be built on a 40-acre (16 ha) lot[55] in Henderson, Nevada, adjacent to the Galleria at Sunset mall. The start of construction was delayed several times because of poor financial quarters for Santa Fe Gaming,[54] and because of the company not yet receiving financing for the project.[56] Site preparation started in July 1998, with an opening date scheduled for December 1999,[57] but construction never began. In 1999, the property was sold to Station Casinos,[58][59] which sold the land a year later for use as a shopping center.[60]
Shenandoah Hotel and Casino
A project by Wayne Newton. Although the hotel operated for a short time at 120 E. Flamingo Road, the management was unable to get a gaming license. After years of floundering it was sold to a Canadian company and became Bourbon Street Hotel and Casino.
Silver City proposals
By January 2000, Luke Brugnara was planning to build a San Francisco-themed resort on the site of the closed Silver City Casino.[61] Brugnara intended to give Silver City a multimillion-dollar renovation, with plans to have a fully operational hotel-casino by 2002.[62] In March 2001, Brugnara's request for a gaming license was rejected.[63] In May 2002, it was announced that Brugnara had sold the casino while retaining six acres located behind the building.[64] In 2003, Brugnara was planning to build a 24-story, 304-room hotel and casino resort on a portion of the Silver City property. The resort, to be named "Tycoon", was to be designed by Lee Linton, with an expected cost of approximately $100 million.[65]
Starship Orion
International Thoroughbred Breeders (ITB) announced plans to demolish the El Rancho and construct Starship Orion, a $1 billion hotel, casino, entertainment and retail complex with an outer space theme, covering 5.4 million square feet (501,676 square meters). The resort was to include seven separately owned casinos, each approximately 30,000 square feet (2,787 square meters).[66][67] Each potential casino owner was to contribute up to $100 million to own and operate a casino within the complex.[68] The complex would have included 300,000 square feet (27,871 square meters) of retail space, as well as 2,400 hotel rooms and a 65-story hotel tower. ITB hoped to begin construction later in 1996, with a planned opening date of April 1998.[67]
This was to have been located at 4575 Boulder Highway. Property developer Michael Mona Jr. built the hotel-casino and stated that he was going to break tradition by starting a "casino without a theme". He failed to get an unrestricted gaming license when suspicions arose concerning his associations with alleged organized crime figures. Chips were made for the casino, but were never used.[69] The building was opened as Arizona Charlie's Boulder.
In 1999, Bob Stupak was planning a 400-foot-high (122 m) resort themed after the RMS Titanic, to be built on a 10-acre (4 hectares) property he owned near downtown Las Vegas. The resort would have included 1,200 rooms, 800 of which were to be used for timeshares to help finance the project. That year, planning commissioners rejected Stupak's request to change the zoning to allow for a hotel.[70] The project was later planned for the former site of the El Rancho Vegas on the Las Vegas Strip, but was rejected by the Las Vegas City Council.[4]
W Las Vegas
Main article: W Las Vegas W Las Vegas was proposed in August 2005, as a $1.7 billion joint project between Starwood and Edge Resorts, with a scheduled opening in 2008. The project would include a 75,000 sq ft (7,000 m2) casino and approximately 3,000 hotel, condo hotel, and residential units.[71][72] The project was cancelled in May 2007, after Starwood pulled out of the deal.[73]
Wally's Wagon Wheel
Wally's Wagon Wheel was to be developed by Walter Weiss through his company, Magna Leisure Partnership.[74][75] The project was proposed for 2200 South Boulder Highway in Henderson,[76][77] between Wagon Wheel Drive and Roberts Road,[78] near Henderson's Old Vegas western theme park. Manga Leisure Partnership purchased the 15.5-acre property in late February 1988. Weiss, at that time, had tentative plans for a western-themed, 112-room property known then as the Wagon Wheel Hotel and Casino. The Wagon Wheel was expected to cost $15 million, and financing had yet to be obtained for the project, which Weiss expected to open in early 1990.[74] The project, which would include a 55,000 sq ft (5,100 m2) casino, was to be built in two phases.[79]
By October 1991, Wally's Wagon Wheel remained unbuilt due to difficulty obtaining financing.[80][76] That month, the Henderson Planning Commission voted to give Weiss more time to make progress on the project. At that time, the project was to include 204 hotel rooms and would be built on 13.30 acres (5.38 ha). Weiss noted that the nearby successful Sam's Town hotel-casino opened with 204 rooms, and he believed his project would be successful if he opened with the same amount of rooms for good luck.[76] By the end of 1992, Weiss had still not acquired financing for Wally's Wagon Wheel. At the time, the project was the largest of five casinos being planned for Henderson. The three-story project was to include 200 rooms, two restaurants, a theater lounge for country and western entertainment, and a large bingo room. Weiss stated that groundbreaking was scheduled for May 1993, with an expected opening in June 1994. The hotel-casino would employ approximately 600 people upon opening.[81]
Weiss met with nearby residents to discuss the project, and he had the original design changed to include a larger buffer zone between homes and the hotel-casino. In November 1994, the Henderson Planning Commission voted to recommend approval of Weiss' requested zone change as part of the redesign. The project, at that time, was to include a one-story casino and a four-story hotel with 400 rooms.[82][83] In December 1994, the Henderson City Council rejected Weiss' plans for a 200-foot (61 m) buffer.[84]
In July 1997, the unbuilt project received its sixth extension from the Henderson Planning Commission for a use permit and architectural review.[85] In August 1997, the Henderson City Council approved the sixth extension, but denied Weiss' appeal for a one-year extension, instead giving him six months to make progress on the project.[77] Up to that time, $1.7 million had been invested in the project by Magna Leisure Partnership.[86] As of 1998, the project was expected to cost $80 million and employ at least 1,200 people, and the proposed site had increased to 19 acres (7 ha). At that time, Weiss stated that he was close to obtaining financing for the project from a casino operator.[87] The project was never built.
Wild Wild West
Not to be confused with Wild Wild West Gambling Hall & Hotel. As of 1993, Station Casinos owned a 27-acre (11 ha) site on Boulder Highway with the potential to be developed as a casino. The site was located across the street from Sam's Town hotel-casino.[88] In January 1998, Crescent Real Estate Equities Co. announced plans to purchase Station Casinos, which had intended to sell the land prior to the announcement.[89] By March 1998, Station Casinos was planning to develop a hotel-casino complex on the land, which was occupied by a vacant strip mall. The complex would be known as Wild Wild West, with local residents as the target clientele.[90][89]
Crescent's purchase of Station Casinos failed in August 1998, and Station Casinos subsequently slowed its plans to build the project.[91] By the end of the year, the project had received approval from the Clark County Planning Commission for a 273,000 sq ft (25,400 m2) casino and a 504-room hotel.[92] No timetable for construction was announced,[92][93] and Station Casinos had already decided by that point not to start any new projects prior to 2000.[92] Station Casinos sold the undeveloped land for $11.2 million to Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. in April 2004.[94]
World Port
In 2000, Howard Bulloch, David Gaffin, and their partner Tom Gonzales transferred ownership of the Glass Pool Inn property to their group, known as New World, with plans for a megaresort.[95] New World purchased several other nearby motels to accumulate a 77-acre (31 ha) parcel located on the Las Vegas Strip and east of the Mandalay Bay.[96] In January 2001, plans were announced for World Port Resorts, a megaresort consisting of hotel-casinos, a convention center and a fine arts facility. The project was to be built on the 77-acre (31 ha property, a portion of which was occupied by the Glass Pool Inn.[96]
World Trade Center
To have been located at 925 East Desert Inn Road. Leonard Shoen, co-founder of U-Haul truck rental, purchased the property of what had been the Chaparral Hotel & Casino in 1996, renovating it into the World Trade Center Hotel. A gaming license was applied for, but when it was discovered that two of Shoen's closest partners were convicted felons, the application was denied in 1998. He withdrew his application, and died in a car crash in 1999 that was ruled a suicide. Cards and gaming chips were produced for the World Trade Center Casino, but were never used.[97] The property has since been demolished and is now a parking lot, part of the Las Vegas Convention Center Annex.
World Wrestling Federation
A casino resort themed after the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) was proposed for a property near the Interstate 15 freeway across from Mandalay Bay. The project never went past the proposal stage.[4] The land where it would have stood is now Allegiant Stadium.
WWF also proposed to open the project on the property once used by the Clarion Hotel and Casino, which was demolished in 2015 to become a parking lot.
In February 1976, the Clark County Commission approved the 23-story Xanadu resort, to be built on the Las Vegas Strip at the corner of South Las Vegas Boulevard and Tropicana Avenue. The resort would include approximately 1,700 hotel rooms and a casino, as well as convention facilities, a showroom, dining, and indoor tennis courts. The resort was to be developed by Tandy McGinnis – of Bowling Green, Kentucky – and his Xanadu Corporation, and would be built on 48.6 acres (19.7 ha) owned by Howard Downes, a resident of Coral Gables, Florida.[98][99][100] The Xanadu would feature a pyramid design, and was expected to cost $150 million.[100] It would have been the first themed mega-resort. Much information and many artifacts of the project are housed at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas library. The Excalibur Hotel and Casino ultimately opened on the property in 1990.[101]

Trials of Adam ch1, 2

Trials of Adam ch1, 2

Welcome to my novel, inspired by Barry Pepper's role in Crawl (2019)

Chapter 1: Envy, Wrath
Nobody ever imagines themselves as a victim. I certainly didn't. I admit I was kind of a cocky little shit so maybe I deserved to be here: half-naked in a swamp with a bullet in my chest. I think there was also a bullet in my head, either that or I cracked my skull on something while in the process of crawling out of my makeshift grave. "I am Army Master Sergeant Adam Severgine," I said out loud to no one. I needed to remain conscious, I needed to survive.
This was no different from a deployment. Except instead of fighting for my country, for the chance to prove myself, I was fighting to dig myself out of a shithole of my own creation. "I am Adam Severgine, husband, father...addict." Tears filled my eyes. My wife and daughter were miles away in Biloxi, Mississippi.
I had no fear of death and dying but eventually, they would find out how badly I fucked up. I lost thousands of dollars in gambling, booze, heroin, meth. I should have just gotten out when I had the chance.
Instead, I turned tricks, ran drugs; I became a bitch to avoid becoming a bitch. The idea made me laugh. "Ow..." Fuck, I'm going to die.
"No, you're not." The male voice sounded calm, serene. "Do you even know where you are?"
‘I know I'm imagining you, whatever the fuck you are.’
"Because the mighty Master Sergeant Adam could never be communicating with an angel," the voice said with a laugh. The grass in front of me started to blow in the wind.
\swish* *crunch* *swish* *crunch**
The blades of grass seemed to grow taller, their shadows forming the shape of a man with long wavy hair.
"Is that what you are?" I asked with a chuckle. A sharp pain struck my side; I definitely had broken ribs.
As the angel came closer, he seemed to materialize into a mortal form; olive skin, green eyes, and hair that seemed to be streaked with red, blue, purple and gold. "What do you think I am?"
"You kind of look like the Lord, Jesus Christ," I said, my voice starting to slur into a southern accent as I felt my mind drifting away.
The angel laughed as he ran his fingers through his rainbow hair. "I'll take that as a compliment." He then reached over his shoulder and pulled on a golden cloak out of thin air. "Are you ready to go?"
"Go where?"
The angel shrugged. "Does it matter?"
"I guess not." Any place had to be better than dying alone in the swamp.
The angel reached out his hand. "You can call me Leo."
I took his hand, as I did, a series of letters flashed before my eyes; 'E-N-V-Y.' The letters were in thick black font as if someone was throwing them at my face. But why 'envy'?
I jolt awake, in full uniform, outside of a commander's office. I had been here before but where was I?
"Come in," said a female voice.
I knew who it was; Lt General Allyssa Blake. I was back at my station in Alaska. Still afraid of how the hell I managed to travel back in time I took a breath and entered the office giving the appropriate salute.
The much younger woman had blonde hair, light blue eyes, and lips that made me dream of what she looked like out of uniform. "At ease," she said with her soft breathy voice. She returned the salute and motioned for me to take a seat.
Allyssa never sounded like an officer. She gave off ASMR, that tingly feeling down your spine. She was pageant-queen beautiful, brilliant, but more than anything she was kind. Her wonderful heart was the only thing keeping me from bending her over the desk and fucking her brains out.
Sat down, focusing my eyes on the floor. I at least knew what this meeting was about. "Thank you for meeting with me Ma'am."
"Of course, Sergeant. Do you still want the transfer?"
Was this a memory or a test? "The transfer to Mississippi?"
"Yes, unless there was another position you were interested in pursuing."
"Sorry, I'm just a little one edge as of late. I apologize for the nature of my request I-" My daughter was sick, my wife was cheating on me because she was 'lonely.' I needed to be home, to reclaim my family.
"Hey," she stood up and took my hand. "I love you, Adam. You're a good guy. You're going to go home and you're going to fix this. I already have a replacement lined up."
"You do?" This part was new. I never stuck around to learn who she put in my position.
"Lawrence will take over."
"Lawrence Heath?" Lawrence Heath was an Air Force liaison officer. He had more training and education then I did so from a technical standpoint he was a good choice. But he was also Alyssa's ex who transferred to Japan after she miscarried their son.
"He wants to marry me," her voice was so angelic, calm.
Time stood still. I can feel a sharp pain in my chest. "Leo? Please tell me this is a dream."
Leo placed his hand upon my shoulder. "What do you remember about Lawrence?"
"H-He never actually hurt her."
"Alyssa miscarried in the middle of the office. You drove her to the hospital. You held her hand while she cried. Where was he?"
"He was at work. He came to her as soon as he could. I loved her like a sister, and I know it broke her when he left. But she loved him." I reached my hand to touch Alyssa's frozen cheek. "I hope they found happiness."
"Impressive," Leo said, starting a slow clap. I turned to see my guardian angel sitting on an office chair, his rainbow hair flowing about his face. "I wonder how someone so noble ended up in a place like this."
"What?" With a jolt, I was back in the swamp. My chest felt like it was being crushed and my head was throbbing. In my hands, I felt an unbearable burning sensation. But I knew perfectly well why that was. Shooting up heroin between your broken fingers tends to fuck shit up. I forced myself to scoot backward until I felt myself leaning against a massive tree. The rough bark cut into the skin of my back and neck, but I was still grateful for the opportunity to rest.
Lighting cracked the sky, forming a distinct series of patterns, 'W-R-A-T-H'- Wrath? I couldn't help but smirk. I mean, I had plenty to be angry about. So, I was actually curious as to where the angel was going to take me next. "I'm ready."
I closed my eyes and took a deep, calming, breath.
I could hear the sound of a plane landing. My skin was no longer in pain, but my heart as beating a mile a minute as I stood in the cool airconditioned TSA waiting room. I knew where this was. When I opened my eyes, I was meeting my daughter. My wife and I had tried for years to conceive but it was never meant to be. At the age of thirty, we started the process to adopt from China. After years of waiting, we stood hand in hand at the immigration office of Jackson, Mississippi. China had been our last hope. For whatever reason, we were unable to even get on a waiting list for a European or North American baby. That was another reason I was nervous. The little girl was already six months old. What if she took one look at me and decided, 'Nope, I'm not going to be able to love these military-redneck white folks?' I was scared. Fate had a reason for never blessing us with a biological child.
As the adoption rep put the baby in my arms, I felt only the light of God's love. "Hello, Cece."
My wife scoffed, "I thought we agreed on a name- Annabelle-Rylie?"
"Felicity June Severgine," that's her name, my daughter's name.
The next few moments flew by in a blur, but a painful number of them were of me abandoning my family. As the years passed, I saw myself in uniform leaving for deployment; moments when I truly believed that I might not come back alive. Other times I was just in sweatpants and a t-shirt as I kissed my family goodbye. Before my eyes, Cece transformed from a toddler to a teen. I suddenly felt a wave of nausea. The last time I saw Cece she was no longer the beautiful girl I remembered.
I closed my eyes and fell to my knees. "Oh, God..." I knew what I was going to see; my angel my reason for living, in a medically induced coma.
"She never told you what really happened," said Leo's disembodied voice.
I stood up to see the angel standing over Cece's bed. "My wife told me it was pneumonia." I'd never made it to my daughter's side to see for myself.
"Marni told you that, knowing it would take you at least a month to get home. The wounds healed by then. And what didn't heal could be explained away. Ironically, after a seizure, she did develop a sepsis infection in her lung that mimicked pneumonia." Leo made his way to Cece's side and held her hand. "But you didn't see what she looked like the day of the phone call." Leo kissed Cece's forehead. "I'm so sorry little one, this will only last a moment."
I had a feeling I was not supposed to hear that last part.
Cece had a breathing tube but as time regressed it vanished, replaced with the monstrous number of wounds. She cried, then screamed. Her face covered in bruises, cuts, and clearly broken bones. Her clothing transformed into a short blue dress; one I had never seen before.
Time stood still as my government issue phone rang. I hit my thigh only to feel no pockets. The phone was in the palm of my hand. "Hello?"
"Hi, Daddy."
I remember this conversation. She said she came home from a dance. Homecoming, Prom?
"I went to a party," Cece's said, her voice cracking with sadness. "It was great."
Leo poked my arm. "Hey, it's your line."
With trembling hands, I moved the phone to my mouth to speak. "That's great, baby."
"Should go," she said as her breathing became labored. It was clear she was trying not to cry. "I-I love you, Daddy."
Marni came in the room just as Cece hung up. "Hi, sweetie, do you feel up to talking to the police officers? They need to get your statement and do a rape kit."
"Yes, Mom," Cece glanced at the phone, giving it a squeeze. "I'll be ok. I just wish Dad was here."
I got to see the rest of the scene. According to her statement, she had been raped, beaten and left for dead. That was how she escaped. When her date (and his three friends) thought she was dead, they locked her in the trunk.
She remembered what her father had told her about how to escape a trunk and managed to not only kick out the tail light but also get the trunk open while the piece-of-shit car was going forty down a backroad. Battered and bloody she ran for her life until she found her way to the main street.
Leo placed his hand upon my shoulder. "What would you have done if you knew the truth?
"I would have fucking killed the bastards."
"Really?" Leo waved his hand, to focus back on the scene.
Marni took a seat, holding Cece's hand. "What did you tell your Dad?"
"Nothing. I didn't want him to be disappointed in me," she said, burying her face in her pillow.
"I could ever be disappointed with you," I said out loud. I knew she couldn't hear me, that hurt more than anything. But not more than the feeling of my leg getting blown off.
A sharp pain shot through my leg. Suddenly I was back in terrorist occupied Iraq, riding in a supply convoy. A larger truck ran us off the road, into an IED. At least that's what I was told.
The vehicle I was in exploded, and I was pinned under the rubble. Somehow my leg was extracted from the mess and sent along with the rest of my broken body to Landstuhl, Germany where I spent the next few weeks waking up.
At the time, my home station was in Colorado Springs, Colorado. That was where my wife was living with a then eleven-year-old Cece. I remember I’d asked that I be transferred back to my family; if I was going to die, I wanted to die at home. My superiors, the US military; they owed me that much.
My next memory was of Cece staying by my side. I'd suffered burns over twenty-five percent of my body, there were bone shards in my hips and my leg had been put back together with pins and rods. It was a unique sensation, to be a living mass of pain. The local medical team determined that I would never walk again. So, the goal was to make me comfortable.
I was allowed at-home hospice care. This meant that I was placed under the attention of a nurse for administering therapy, and medications, but during the majority of the week my wife was tasked with wound care. At least she was supposed to be. My wife never touched me. To do so would have meant to show some level of compassion.
I remember Cece asked the nurse to teach her how to change the dressing on my leg. I have to assume the nurse thought she was curious and adorably sweet. Because otherwise, it was not the safest practice.
I closed my eyes. When I awoke, I was back in that wonderful moment. "Cece?"
"Hi, Daddy," my little daughter said in a calm whisper as she donned oversized medical gloves.
“Hi, Sweetheart,” I replied in a horse whisper.
“If I hurt you, I’m really sorry.” She changed out the gauze, using a bottle of peroxide to wash the open wounds.
I flinched but tried my best to stay quiet.
"Mom said that I needed to say goodbye," Cece explained as she worked with a gentle touch. "She told me the only reason you came home is because you're too sick to go back. I don't believe her." She finished in silence before getting a clean blanket from the closet. "You're going to walk again." She cuddled by my side, resting her head on my shoulder. "Superheroes don't die."
My heart filled with a sense of faith that I didn't know was possible.
She spent her summer by my side; changing my bandages, helping with physical therapy. I was also working with a therapy nurse who was impressed by my level of strength.
For Cece's twelfth birthday she had a party at the on-base movie theatre. I paid the bills but Marni took on the responsibility of making the day special for our daughter. Cece invited her entire class, she looked so genuinely happy.
I arrived in my wheelchair. As the movie played, it was 'Step Up', some kind of dance movie from the golden age of hip-hop music. The movie was played on the projector as background noise, as the kids ate pizza and talked.
I waited in the back until she noticed me.
"Dad!" She broke off a conversation with several friends to run over to me. "Oh my god! Did you just get here? How was your therapy appointment?"
From my wheelchair, I reached to the cane at my side and I stood up.
Cece cupped her hands over her mouth as tears welled in her eyes.
I took my first (pain-stricken) steps since the accident that should have taken my life. I stood tall, strong, as Cece threw her arms around me.
"I love you, Daddy. You're my hero." she paused to wipe tears from her eyes. "But does this mean you're leaving again?"
I was. I could have taken medical retirement, stayed with my family. But I needed the money. I needed to pay off a mortgage, send my daughter to a good college: I wanted to make my family proud.
So, I took a position in Alaska as a squadron lead. That’s when the addictions started. painkillers lead to heroin. loneliness lead to gambling and prostitution. all because I left behind the one person who truly cared.
The world went dark. I was sitting alone in an empty theatre as Leo appeared on the screen. "Hi, Adam. Wow, this is certainly an interesting view."
"Yeah," I replied in a weak voice.
"Well, I have to ask, what would you have done if you knew the truth about your daughter's assault?"
All I could do was laugh. The situation was clear now: I was dead and this was Hell. "You really want to know?"
Leo shook his head. "Look, I'm not a sadist, I just have a job to do. I was human once, just like you. And no, you're not in hell."
“Forgive me if I don’t believe you.”
The man laughed as he turned towards the theatre and with one swift motion, seemed to jump from the screen. He walked towards me, with the fabric of the curtain attached to his back like wings. "So, what would you have done? Her attackers were never prosecuted. If you had a moment with those boys in a soundproof room with just your revolver, what would you do?"
I thought for a moment. I had no one to blame but myself. "I would eat my gun." Was Cece dead? I needed to know. If she was gone, I truly wanted to die.
Leo approached me, placing a hand upon my shoulder. "Much better, on to the next test."
I gripped his arm. "Why should I trust you?"
Leo rolled his eyes. "Maybe because I'm the one with the magic powers."
"You're my driver," I said in a tone that came off ruder than intended. "But what would happen if I said I'd rather walk to my final destination."
Leo chuckled and shrugged. "Hell, if I know. Maybe someone will find your body. Maybe you'll reunite with Cece in heaven. Or maybe she'll survive and grow up believing that her hero abandoned her. What do you want from me?"
"You said you were human once- I want to know something about you."
Leo cupped his hand to my face, tracing a finger along my jawline. He appeared to be studying my features, which gave me an opportunity to study his. "What do you see when you look at me?"
"You have green eyes," I said in a whisper. His eyes were hypnotic, his breath; warm, comforting, human.
"I know what it feels like to love someone until it hurts." Leo leaned in and kissed my lips, breathing a long constant stream of air that seemed to crackle with electricity.
Chapter 2: Lust, Greed
'All you need is love? Love? Love is all you need?' The voices hummed in my ear. They weren't singing, they were asking. I know where I am and I don't want to open my eyes.
"How does that feel?" asked a voice that was not Leo. It was Dr. Ethan Rogers, my physical therapist. He was a younger man; late twenties, early thirties, with blond hair and blue eyes- the most all-American soldier you could ever hope to meet. And he was massaging my naked thigh with a vibrator.
I know I'm hard, and I know what he's about to do next.
"I'm going to put this inside you," he said in a most professional tone of voice.
I could have attacked him, punched him in the face, or at the very least or at least said no. But it felt so good. I knew my scar tissue was prominent. It was a disgusting crater that ran along the entirety of my leg. I stayed in shape; my body was lean, muscular but that seemed all for show. I needed to look the part of a soldier, maybe if I was lucky, I would be able to pass my physical. My legs were for running, training. My cock was for pissing. My ass was for shitting. It had been months since I allowed myself to feel sexual pleasure.
"Just relax, let yourself go."
Damn it feels incredible. My eyes open on their own, staring straight into the blinding room light. The bulb is blinking forcing me to blink. Letters form in the shape of the light. 'L-U-S-T.' Yeah, I guess so. But it wasn't a lust for sex.
I feel him inject my leg; my broken, mangled leg. My leg that existed for the sole purpose of causing me unbearable pain, akin to the fires of hell. In a matter of moments, all of that was but a memory. He told me he was giving me morphine but I knew it had to be something stronger. That shit fucked with my head. Like a cool wave of tranquility; life death and every emotion in-between.
"I can get you a prescription for morphine, maybe even fentanyl.” His voice is calm, cool, like an ice tea on a hot day. “All you have to do is submit to me."
All I could do was laugh. "Sure, sounds great." My speech was slurred. This man was the devil and I willingly jumped headfirst down the rabbit hole into Hell.
I was physically fit. Dr. Ethan Rogers knew he could rent me out to anyone who had a fetish for dominating. Over the next year and a half, I lived as a sex-slave. I was bound, gagged. I sucked cock and even let men fuck me in my on-base housing. I was a human party favor, but I was always well compensated.
I took their pills, so many pills, all the colors of the rainbow. Most of the time, I never knew what any of it was, only that it was my prize. And when given vials of heroin, meth and God knows what else, I shot up in my arms, legs, but mainly my hands just because no one at my actual job seemed to notice my hands.
It was a perfect system. By day I was a soldier; a flawless, reliable worker who could be counted on for any job. I was a great husband and father who was working tirelessly to make sure his family would be taken care of. I worked myself to the bone, playing through the pain. But at night I was free.
Until the day my heart stopped.
I awoke in Alysa Blake's room, on her sofa. "Wow, you fucked up." The general looked like her actual youthful age. Her long blonde hair was pulled into a messy bun.
"Aly?" I tried to speak but immediately had to vomit.
General Blake had a bucket waiting by the side of my head. "You're going to stay here for a while." She placed a cold washcloth to my neck focusing on my artery. "This is going to help with the pain in your chest."
I shook my head. "But, what about my leg?"
"You're not the only one living with chronic pain." Alyssa took my hand a placed it on her hip, just below her abs. There was a massive scar. I knew the story; she had been shot in the hip; the bone and surrounding tissue had to be rebuilt. This was likely the reason for her later miscarriage. "I'm not giving you anything for your leg. You're probably going to have another seizure from all the drugs you already took."
I tried to move, to sit up- anything. But the pain seemed to course through my body. I wanted to cry or scream, but no sound was coming from my parched throat.
I gripped my head as a massive migraine pounded my vision. In the midst of my agony, I didn't even notice Alyssa leave and return with a blanket until the moment she cuddled by my side. "I'm going to stay with you."
I nodded, with a noticeable lump in my throat.
"Talk to me about Cece." Alyssa put her arms around me as she rested her head on my chest. “What is she like?”
I knew what this was. This moment, it was the opposite of lust. Nothing was worth more than my family, my daughter "She's a dancer."
"A dancer?"
"I think my wife has her in gymnastics and cheerleading but she..." I swallowed hard thinking about the last time we talked. Cece asked if she could send me a link to a video of her ballet recital. She loved ballet, she wanted to be a choreographer. She sent the link but my Alaska internet was too weak to see it without an extensive amount of buffering. And the camera had been placed so far back I could barely make out her face. I told her as much, but that I would love to see her dance someday.
"Have you seen any of her performances?"
I nodded. "C-Can I have some water?"
"Sure." Alyssa turned away, attempting to sit up.
Try as a might, my arms wouldn't let her go. "I feel sick. But, more than anything, don't want to cry in front of my commanding officer."
Alyssa glared at me with a look of seriousness. "I found you in your room bleeding from your ass. I performed CPR until you were lucid enough to walk with your arm around my shoulder." She only lived a few houses down and often visited.
I couldn't remember making the walk to her house but it wouldn't be the first time. I had the habit of dialing her number when I was too high to think straight. "My apologies Ma'am."
She reached for my hand, stroking between my fingers. "If I was here as your commanding officer you would be in a hospital awaiting a medical discharge." Her fingers paused on an open sore where I injected regularly. "I'm here as your friend, because what you need right now is a friend."
I knew she wasn't wrong. "Thank you."
"So, tell me about the time you saw your little girl dance."
My hands were trembling as my eyes filled with tears. "She sent me a USB."
"She sent you a file on a flash drive? Wow, that's really sweet."
"Cece had somehow used her phone to record a solo piece in her backyard. I didn't recognize the song, something Gaelic sounding about finding your wings to touch the sky." With the warm memory in my heart, my body relaxed.
"That sounds like the theme from the movie Brave," Alyssa said as she sat up. "Wow, that brings back memories. Anyway, I'm going to get you some water now."
Brave? Of course, it was.
Alyssa returned with a bottled water and a straw. "Take small sips." Once it appeared like I was not going to vomit again she took her place back on my chest, holding me close. "You need to go home."
"I know." I stroked her hair as I looked up at her stucco ceiling.
"You need to research a position at a base closer to your family,” she said as she kissed my cheek. “And I will sign off on it."
"Thank you." Now I just wish she talked me out of driving down to the states. Maybe I wouldn't have fucked up as badly as I did.
A lonely drive, six hours on the road, maybe eight. Behind the wheel of a rented SUV carrying all my worldly possessions, I thought I could keep focus, I thought I-
And here comes the crash.
I opened my eyes, but all I see is darkness. "Leo, are you there?"
I could feel someone grab my hand, pulling me from the vehicle. It wasn't Leo, but rather a younger male, possibly a teen.
"Wow, Leo was right, you are fucked up." The kid pulled me out of the vehicle, seemingly indifferent to my level of pain. "You should grab your wallet and suitcase. We have a bit of a walk into town.”
I did as he asked. I could recall what happened at this moment in time. While it did not include a Native American surfer-boy, I knew where we were headed.
"How long did you manage to stay clean for?" the smug teen asked.
I turned to him with a look of contempt. He stood maybe 5'9", and although he had an attractive face and youthful demeanor, I would have no problem punching his lights out.
"Really, old man?" The boy laughed.
"Master Sergeant Adam Severgine," I said with a groan.
"I know," he said, happily, skipping down the road. "I'm Jamie. Welcome to Oklahoma."
"How old are you? And where's Leo?"
"Leo will meet us in town. And as for me-" Jamie did a backflip landing in front of my face, close enough to kiss my lips. "I'm legal."
"Are you a guardian angel too?"
"Are you asking if I have powers?"
"I am," I replied through gritted teeth. I could remember how long the original walk took me. By the time I got to town, my leg was killing me.
"That's not why you got high off your ass."
"Oh, fuck you!"
"You got clean just long enough to pass a physical, for the job transfer. And then you started using again like the fucked-up junkie that you are!" Jamie continued doing flips and cartwheels down the empty road.
I focused on my own path looking down at my boots as I walked. My leg was mostly healed, to the point where I could walk unassisted, I could even drive. But I still felt an ache, a chronic pain that would never go away no matter what drugs I took.
Jamie appeared in front of me, lifting my face to look into his eyes. "I'm bored and I miss my boyfriend so I'm going to do you a favor." He punched me in the face with all the force of a fighter jet.
I awoke on the floor of a casino. And I do mean floor: My eyes opened to reveal the sight of paramedics working frantically. They had apparently just finished restarting my heart.
When I looked straight ahead, sitting at a slot machine was Jamie. The little punk was doubled over in laughter.
Leo stepped out of the shadows. He raised a finger giving the 'give me a second' sign. He embraced Jamie, speaking to him in a quiet tone. I couldn’t hear what they were saying, but at least Leo was calming him down. When Jamie finally stopped laughing, the couple walked to the elevators.
A tall older man, in a suit, came over to check on the scene. He was the hotel manager and a former Marine. We talked for a while, with me telling him my situation. He kindly offered to give me a room for the night, free of charge. It was the least he could do for a fellow soldier.
Yes, it was only for one night. I could contact the rental agency and they could send a new car to my location. But until then he offered to buy me dinner and give me a tour of the hotel and casino.
Everything was going great. After hanging out with my new friend I took a seat at one of the many the table poker tables.
I was by no means an expert but I preferred tables, to computer-generated games of chance. That was when I met Lola. She looked like a typical cocktail waitress, just a few years away from retirement. She was possibly old enough to be my mother (either that or she had just spent too much time in the sun,) but she was undeniably beautiful. She made sure to flirt, playing with her long blonde hair as she brought me free drinks.
"Drink up," she said, before taking a shot. She cupped my face, forcing the shot of whiskey down my throat. "It's on me, love." Next thing I knew she was on my lap. I was winning hand after hand; she was truly my good luck charm. When I was too drunk to walk, she offered to escort me to my room.
I remember collapsing on to the bed. I could feel her hands, her long nails, then her mouth. When I was ready, she started to ride me. Talking dirty in a way that my wife never did, I gave her full control. she got on her knees and wanted me to fuck her from behind. I did, and what was when a man barged in with a master key. It was the manager.
My memory is blacking in and out but I remember him getting on the bed. He and Lola are laughing. They offer me cocaine.
The next morning, I awoke to the sight of Lola in my bed. Her naked chest was moving, so I had no immediate reason to panic.
Jamie stood in the corner wide-eyed. "Wow, I was raped to death by a demonic cult and even I found that disturbing."
Leo walked through the wall to stand at Jamie's side. "And this isn't even the worst of it."
I tried to sit up but my body hurt. "Why, the fuck, are you even here?" Just my luck, I had a pair of fuck-boy morons for guardian angels.
Leo sighed. He approached the bed, stroking Lola's hand. "You can't change the past." He made a turn to the closet, grabbing my phone from my pocket. "But you can choose your future."
I was lucid enough to move my arm and unlock my screen. I had wi-fi. I clicked on my email. it was open to a message from Cece, starting with a link that I had never seen before. ""
Leo shrugged. "You should probably take a look."
I clicked. There was Cece in her blue dress, sitting on her bed. "Hi, Dad. I'm a little nervous. I really like Jason, and well, I wish you could have met him. He's so much like you. He wants to join the Marines, travel the world. I mean, I guess I'd write to him. A lot of my friends are planning on getting married, so their boyfriends don't cheat. It's really stupid. Jason says he loves me, he wants to marry me. I'm pretty sure he just wants to fuck me." Cece looked down at her silver ring. It had belonged to my grandmother who passed away before Cece was born. I had given it to my daughter on her sixteenth birthday. It was only then, on that video, did I notice where she wore it. She wore it like a wedding ring: a purity ring.
Cece looked to the side, at her computer, to press a few keys. "I hope this will help my anxiety." The music starts to play, it was a slow, Celtic, song. I watched as she moved her arms, in a graceful ballet pose. She appeared to be free-styling a dance piece, in her room, dancing on her bare feet. It was truly breathtaking. But why was the file titled ''?
"I can't wake up without you, Dad." The voice was not coming from the phone.
I nearly screamed at the sight of Cece's broken, bloody form.
Jamie put his arm around Cece, patting her shoulder. "Don't worry, she's still in a coma."
The creepy, undead version of my daughter leaned her head on Jamie's shoulder. She turned just enough to look at me with her dark, innocent, eyes. "When you rocked me to sleep, you would tell me stories. I think you assumed I couldn't hear you or what I wasn't paying attention."
"You couldn't even talk." For the first two years, I was so nervous about being a father, that I would unload all of my horrific stories on to Cece like a verbal diary. she didn't speak a word until she started preschool at age three and even then, I never heard anything from her teachers about my stories.
"Knowing so much about your past is why I always had such respect for you." Cece took a step forward, reaching out her hand. "I know what you saw, what you experienced. It made you the person you are." When she came closer, her hand hit a glowing wall of energy. She nodded her head knowingly. We weren't in the same space. "Jamie said you're going to make your way back to me."
I knew our time was short so I had only one question to ask. "Why greed?"
"You told me I was your treasure; I was everything you ever wanted."
"I'm so sorry."
"That wasn't meant as an attack. Not at you, not ever." Cece moved closer. She was able to sit on the bed, her hand caressing the fabric. Her moves were careful and deliberate.
I would have given anything to be able to touch her hand. I knew in my heart this wasn't an illusion, this was my daughter.
Cece pursed her lips and continued, "There's an old saying, 'Shoot for the moon, even if you fail, you'll be among the stars.' Well, what happens when you reach the moon but it's not the finish line that you thought it would be. You always want more, I did anyway. that's why I let Jason go as far as he did. I thought I could have it all; I'd go to college and have a hot, long-distance boyfriend. maybe we'd meet up in Europe where I would audition for a ballet company. At least that's what I thought." Cece wiped tears from her eyes. "He was dating me as a practical joke. I was the nerdy-science geek who was also a dancer. The rumor was that I clearly wanted to be fucked, but my stern military daddy was keeping me inline." She paused for a moment, looking into my eyes. "I guess he was half right. I knew Jason's plan was to make me choose between you and him. And what's really messed up is, I would have chosen him. I was greedy." Cece took a few steps back, her form already starting to fade. "I miss you so much, Dad. Please come find me."
Leo cracked his knuckles. "Well, this was fun but we have miles to go before we sleep. So-" He turned to Jamie.
“Yeah, I know.” Jamie nodded, with a sigh, as Cece vanished.
Next, Leo turned to me, with hesitation. "This next part is going to hurt."
"More than seeing my dying daughter?"
Leo clicked his tongue as he moved to Jamie's side. "Adam, how much do you remember about your trip from Oklahoma to Louisiana?"
"Do I remember who shot me and left me for dead int he Louisiana swamplands?" I clearly did not.
"Do you want to know?" Leo asked, twirling a lock of his rainbow hair. "I mean I'm supposed to show you, orders from the big boss," he said, motioning towards heaven. "But I think it would be a little cruel."
Jamie's eyes lit up. "Can we just give him a summery? He'll feel just as shitty but we won't have to watch it!"
Leo pursed his lips, clearly trying to hide laughter. "Jamie..." Leo took a breath to calm down. "None the less you are correct. But to stay in line with the," he made the pointing gesture again, "I'll give him just enough to dwell on during our hike back to civilization."
Jamie leaned against a wall as Leo stepped towards me. He crawled into bed, positioning himself on top of me like a snake. His long hair trickled against my face. "You good, Adam?"
"As good as I can be."
"I'll make this quick." Leo closed his eyes.
I did the same. The images flashed before my eyes like the world’s worst vacation slideshow. Oh, God.
More sex, drugs, a few suicide attempts. Luckily it would only last three weeks. I apparently went on the mother of all drug binges. I didn't want to go home, and I knew why. My daughter was sick, but my wife… my beautiful, kind, wife, Marni-Lynn was a fucking whore who’d torn my heart out a long time ago.

Sports Betting Revenues Falling Short of States’ Expectations

Legalized sports betting has failed to generate the revenue expected in Rhode Island. The state initially budgeted for $23.5 million in gambling related revenues for the fiscal year ending in June 2019 (began in Nov. ’18). The target was lowered to $11.5 million in January, but R.I. lottery officials are reporting that the state has posted just 1.3% of that total ($150,000) to date. Governor Gina Raimondo attributed the shortfall to “a little bit [of a] later start than we thought”; wagering volume ($250 million anticipated vs. $813 million projected) and gambler performance (better than expected) have also forced the need for a rebalancing of the budget. While it’s all but assured that Rhode Island will fall short of January’s revamped projection, it should experience significant revenue growth in 2020; Raimondo signed a bill last week that will permit online sports betting within the state.
Howie Long-Short: The Patriots Super Bowl win contributed to a tough February for Rhode Island’s sportsbooks – the pair lost a combined $890,000 on $20.7 million in wagers during the month. They’re off to a better start in March, having raked in +/- $1 million over the first weekend of the NCAA tournament. The state is entitled to 51% of sports betting revenues (after expenses).
Rhode Island is certainly not a proxy for the country – it has just 2 licensed casinos – but “most of the states” that have passed legislation since PASPA was struck down have fallen short of projections. It’s certainly no coincidence that like Rhode Island, all but New Jersey (which out-earned Nevada for the 1st time in Jan.) failed to establish mobile/online as an option.
Rhode Island’s 2020 budget assumes sports betting will bring in $30.3 million in revenue, including $3 million in mobile fees. Democratic Senate President Dominick Ruggerio has acknowledged that the financial forecasts will need to be rebalanced (see: lowered) in the wake of fiscal 2019 results, but the nominal revenue Raimondo attributed to mobile – relative to the total income projected – makes me think they’re still getting bad “information” (or that they simply don’t understand the marketplace). New Jersey sportsbooks generated 80% of their January revenue from mobile and online platforms.
Once Twin Rivers begins taking online/mobile bets, business will pick up. It will become easier for residents of the state to place wagers and with Massachusetts yet to legalize sports betting, the Rhode Island licensee should pick up some action from residents of the neighboring state (via the William Hill app). For reference purposes, FanDuel claims 9% of its New Jersey business comes from those living in New York and another 4% from those based in Pennsylvania. The 2020 budget assumes mobile sports betting will be available next winter, but there’s a current push within the Assembly to have it in place by the start of the NFL season.
Rhode Island’s 2 casinos (Lincoln and Tiverton) are owned by Twin River Worldwide Holdings. On Friday, the company (which also owns the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Biloxi, MS) “added to its geographic base” closing on the purchase of Dover Downs Gaming & Entertainment. Shares of Twin River common stock subsequently began trading (at $29) on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol TRWH.
Fan Marino: 75% of those who placed bets (against the spread) on the Super Bowl at Rhode Island’s 2 brick and mortar casinos took the hometown Patriots; as a result, the pair lost $2.3 million on the game. It’s not atypical for a sportsbook to take a loss on a big game – like the Super Bowl – when the hometown team covers. Fans bet with their hearts and the action tends to skew “towards the geographically favored team.” The books don’t move the lines to reflect the heavy action though, because doing so would leave them susceptible to sharp money (going the other way) taking advantage of mispriced odds.

Venues - A Difficult Decision! Help!

Please help me decide between the two venues for a possible fall wedding of 2020! We wanted to keep within 100 guests, budget is $15k. We wanted our guests to have fun and enjoy the night with us. Food and photography is our priority.
Facebook page:
The first venue is White Pillars restaurant. To reserve the day of, it would have to be a buyout for $15k for everything excluding open bar. The event coordinator there are willing to work with me on a set price for food & beverage including gratuity&tax and that can expand up to 350 guests. The menu would be curated to our tastes and from the reviews, the restaurant has a great chef and food. Here are some pros and cons:
Great food, with in-house chef
Alll-inclusive $15k for up to 350 people (if we plan on expanding. Fiancé side has a LOT of people and I'm worried his mom might want to increase the list.)
I really love the interior; it is Beautiful, minimal decor is needed
Awesome bar display. Just really love the elegant atmosphere, but at the same time, not too formal.
Good location, on the coast, close to casinos and hotels
Minimal work for us.

No outside ceremony area (it's something fiancé and I wanted, but not a big problem if we can do it inside)
minimal 50-75 guests inside ceremony, not sure how that works out. It would have to be flipped once ceremony is done during cocktail hour.
$15k is out of our budget and that's not including photography/videography, open bar, cake, etc.

The Biloxi Visitor Center is a historical venue sits right on the coast where the view of the lighthouse is right in front of it.
Affordable, rental fee is $1000.
Options are open for different caterers.
Outside lawn ceremony or inside in case it rains.
Has a ballroom, max to 120 people without dance stage, 96 limit with a dance stage.

Since it's just a venue, it'll be more work for us to find catering in for food & beverage, ceremonial chairs etc.
We can't increase the amount of people we want to invite since the space is limited if parents wanted to invite more people.

Any advice, suggestions, thoughts or anything is greatly appreciated!

Kids at a Casino????

21 CF written on mobile tl;dr at the bottom
Okay this happened a few weeks ago, but it still makes me upset. I recently went on a vacation with my mother and step-father. Leading up to this vacation i was extremely excited because it was the first vacation I was taking in over 2 years and school was crushing me.
Anyways for the majority of our trip we were saying in Biloxi, which is a town that has a Casino on just about every block and not much else. We were staying in a Casino resort and naturally I thought that we would not be dealing with that many children diue to the fact that they can not participate in the main activity of the town. The hotel also had a awsome pool that we were going to take advantage of, keyword were.
On the day we decide to go to the pool the weather was cool but good for a heated pool. My family and I get there and the place is overrun with small children screaming their heads off. We stayed for 20 minutes maybe and then left when the screaming became unbearable.
My question is why would parents take their small children to a CASINO RESORT CASINO! The holiday inn in the next town over had vacancy, leave adult activities to the adults and don't bring your mistakes with you.
TD;LR went on vacation to a casino resort and found it overrun with small children.

Who/How to Ask for Comps?

I've just discovered how FUN casinos are and am planning my first trip to Biloxi. While doing research, I've learned most casinos offer $5 free play to new guests who register for a player's card. If I were to travel by "junket bus" the comps increase dramatically! Trip #1 offers $15 slot play and 1/2 off lunch buffet to guests who travel with them. Bus Travel #2 offers $25 in free play. In Casino Trip #3, travelers receive $20 in free play and 1/2 off lunch. Two of the aforementioned offers exceed the initial cost of the trip! Is it poor form for a first time visitor to ask for the same perks when they are traveling in a private vehicle? It's a 6+ hour drive and I'll be spending 3 nights in Biloxi. I will not be staying at any of the casinos, I've found a less expensive "off premise" hotel and the difference has been socked away in my bankroll! Once I get to the casino, who should I approach to ask for the same/similar perks that day trip "junket travelers" get? Should I make my inquiry before I hit the road, or upon arrival in Biloxi? Thanks in advance.

TIFU by losing all my money, getting locked out of my hotel room in just my underwear and almost getting arrested

obligatory "this didn't happen today" sentence.
I was staying at the Casino/Hotel in Biloxi, Ms for a work conference. At these conferences most people do more drinking/gambling than actual working. This particular evening I was planning on doing both. I had an hour or so to kill before dinner so I went to the atm and pulled out my maximum daily amount. After losing just $100, I put the rest of the money in my money clip on my wallet and walked to meet a client at Mary Mahoney's for dinner. He brought along some co workers of his and after the dinner we all exchanged business cards. During this process, my money clip came undone, and all my money fell out of my wallet. Not knowing I headed back to the hotel to start my big night of gambling. After finding the perfect seat at the blackjack table for my impending heater, I realized my money clip is empty and I've lost all my money without the thrill of actually losing it. I retrace my steps from the hotel to the restaurant many times before giving up. "I hope someone who needed it found that money" I tell myself, trying to find the silver lining.
Since I've already pulled out my daily limit from the atm, I have no choice but to call it a night. I went up to my room, ordered pay per view and some room service. I like to sleep in my underwear and just my under wear, so I strip down, get in bed, eat my room service, and watch my movie. Then my night goes from bad to worse. Movie ends. I decided it would be best to clean up some before bed. So I take my room service tray out into the hall and set it down. As I'm setting down the tray, the door closes and locks behind me.
I frantically try to shake the handle, just praying the door will by some miracle open. No miracles. I then knock on a few of the doors of my neighbors, hoping I can use their phone to call the front desk. Again, I'm in just my whitey tighties, no one answered or came to the door weirdly. Fear sets in.
Realization Happens.
"I'm going to have to go to the front desk and get another key" I start walking/jogging to the elevator. I pass a man, who just looks at me and doesn't even acknowledge I'm jogging and in my underwear. "Bless you" I think. I get in the elevator. As the elevator starts going down, I realize that I'm going to have to walk through the entire Casino to get to the front desk. My luck continues. Elevator opens to a group of about 20-25 middle aged women on a bachelorette party. This is quite possibly the worst thing that could have happened to me. Not only are all these woman hooting and hollering at me in my underwear, everyone in the Casino is now curious as to what is causing the commotion. I make my way through them feeling the warm eyes of everyone in the Casino as I walk, looking very much like Walter White season 1, in my underwear through the Casino. One of the security guards has noticed all this and has decided that he thinks I'm just some punk young adult trying to create a scene. He comes up behind me and immediately puts me in hand cuffs. I didn't even get one word out of my mouth before hand.
Can this get worse?
Police show up.
Cops are now talking with security guard about what has happened. All the while, I'm now sitting, in my underwear, handcuffed, in the middle of the Casino floor. I still have not even gotten to tell anyone that I"m simply locked out of my room and extremely embarrassed. Finally, the cops start asking me, "what in the hell I'm thinking." I proceed to tell them everything that has just happened and that I'm actually staying at the hotel. Once they realized that this was simply a mistake and not me just being an asshole running around in my underwear, they uncuffed me. The security guard then called the front desk and confirmed my information and told me to go wait by my room and they would send someone up with the key.
I went back up to my room and was sitting, in my underwear, by the door when a girl from the hotel walked up and said, "Yep, your clearly who I'm here to help." "sigh, yes...yes I am". It was sorta like that dream where you wake up in class in nothing but your underwear, execpt it was a Casino and it was real.
TL;DR I lost all my money, went back to my room. While setting room service tray in hall the door closed and I was locked out in my underwear. Had to walk through casino to the front desk to get a key in just my underwear and was almost arrested for indecent exposure.

Biloxi Casino/Hotel Suggestions

Going out to Biloxi in a few weeks and figured I can kill some time with live poker. Looking for 1/2 NL Holdem.
Also, suggestions on Hotels? Any of the Casino/Hotels (Hard Rock, Golden Nugget, Palace Casino, Beau, etc.) worth staying with? Or should I find a nicecheaper hotel nearby and walk/drive to the casino.

Steve Paddock worked with the mafia.. let me show you how!! May even be tied to the Russian Mafia.

So as I have stated before, The Mafia run the casinos in Las Vegas. They have however changed from the mafia face to a corporate face to keep people none the wiser.
The brother( or possibly even Steve himself ) during his latest interview he almost said his brother was an arms dealer based on context clues around when he flubbed up.
Everything hes stated in regards to taking care of his mother and him and how he takes care of everyone around him sounded very interesting.. Especially for a high rolling gambler.
High rollers usually know the hotel owners and people that run the joints fairly well I would imagine. Note, owners/people that run the hotels and casinos are mafia bosses.
Reason I am concluding this is the dude would go to china and eat sushi and try to get the hotel to pay for it... uhhh.. yeah that sounds like something that a casino "perk" card would give you. The hotels are run by mafia. Steve had the hookup with the mafia and would get everything comped from them. Most likely because he sold them guns and got them things that they needed. He was most likely a mule.
The brother states he is an "old fashioned" guy and the way that he says it irked me.
Steve/the brothers father was a notorious bank robber. Bank robbers back in the day were generally a part of the mafia as well, were they not? Especially if you are on the FBI's most wanted list.
Now, if you google the name Paddock+Mafia a few things come up.
A major mafia bar back in the day was called the paddock.
Biloxi, Mississippi has The Paddock Club
Horse racing ( i can guarantee mob is affiliated in that gambling as well ) has paddocks included as well.
Now If you search for Paddock on this website you get the following.
Organized crime presents a number of problems. Many organized crime families do operate within the family structure and this to an extent creates a less than desirable environment to raise children, organized criminals tend to gear their children into a negative lifestyle. Today's organized crime families are different than those that came about in the past. In the past, criminologists would examine La Cosa Nostra or the Italian Mafia, but criminal activity goes well beyond such crime families. Asian and Russian organizations enter the picture in the United States today. Asian gangs have become quite apparent in modern America. They seem to traffic in illegal goods and practices such as heroin, prostitution, and gambling (Bolz, 1995). They also engage in money laundering schemes (Bolz, 1995). This latter focus is at the heart of many crime organizations because they have to cover their tracks and make it appear as if everything they are doing is legal. Therefore, money laundering appears to be universal. Money laundering is also considered to be the key to the Russian Mafia's operations (Paddock, 1998).
Seems the Paddock family have ties to Russia.

Anyone heading to Bike Week in Daytona?

Looking to make a Group Ride to Daytona for Bike Week from March 12-16.
If anyone would have an interest let me know and we'll make a trip of it.
Lets get a planning thread going at the minimum to see how many are interested and what days you can go. I personally am planning on making it a 2 day trip. From Houston to Biloxi, stopping over at a casino/hotel for the night, then riding in on Tuesday, and staying from Wednesday through Friday and heading back to Houston Saturday-Sunday.
So 2 days there, 3 days in Daytona, and 2 days back.
Let me know if you're interested and can get the time off.

Boys Weekend in Biloxi May 14/15 2016

I have comb through a few post and the advice I have gotten so far been amazing. Because of this subreddit we are planning our first stop at Treasure Bay Casino and Hotel since we will be refunded up to 100 dollars of lost bets the next day. I still need help planning our weekend and look forward to hearing more ideas. We are age 35 to 45 Straight White Males enjoying a boys vacation. We prefer dive bars and one of the post in this subreddit point us to The Project Lounge known for it amazing steak sandwich. Even though it cost more money to drink at the casino to enjoy free booze we all are stubborn about just playing the lowest blackjack table with a blackjack rule card in front of us. Help me plan a boy's weekend. We are trying to go from ordinary to extraordinary on a budget. Some Questions. Which casino has the best free gameplaying craft beer selection, is it in a certain area of the casino? I know you guys have 2 breweries while we will not be visiting them I would love a place where I can order them for free. I called the Hard Rock and they do pool service for 10 dollars is this a worthwhile deal. Are other pools better or offer more unique services. Where we can we get coupon for free play, or half off buffets? Is there certain publication that has these feature or should we hit the Biloxi welcome center? We look into 24 hour bars outside of the casino. One of the one is a gay bar Just us Lounge and seems to be cater to straight/gay mix. Any words of warning? There used to be a place called the Horseshoe Lounge did this place rename and is it still open? Imagine your poor redneck cousins coming into town. How would you show them a rowdy good time when they only brought a few dollars to their names.

Florida road trip in March. Your thoughts, suggestions and recommendations?

My good friend from medical school and I are doing a little road trip around the South-East US in March. Since we both spend more time on Reddit than any other site, who better to talk to than fellow Redditors?
This is our schedule, any input would be appreciated. I'll include the hotel we are staying at to aid suggestions. This road trip begins right after we are done in New Orleans with Mardi Gras
March 9th. Biloxi, MS, at the Hard Rock Casino
March 10th. Jacksonville, at the Hyatt Regency in downtown
March 11th and 12th. Daytona Beach, hotel undecided
March 13th and 14th. Orlando, hotel undecided but would prefer closer to UCF
March 15th. Gainesville at the Hilton UF
After that we head up to Atlanta and Athens. I'm most familiar with Orlando, usually staying in and around the Lake Buena Vista area but since most of my friends are around UCF it's the wrong location for me. I'm less familiar with Daytona and have only ever been to Gainesville or Jacksonville once before
We don't have anything planned for any of our stops, we just want to go out, have a good time and meet new people. If any Redditors want to join us for a beer you're more than welcome. We're pretty big drinkers so it's not a '1 beer and out' situation with us. Ever
A little about us. Well, we became very good friends in med school and are both doctors now. He's late 20s from Atlanta and I am in my mid 20s from England. We listen to a pretty wide array of music but nothing in the heavy metal area. Our favourite TV shows are The Wire, Arrested Development, Battlestar Galactica, Archer, Peep Show and The Inbetweeners. We're both well informed about politics, economics and religion but only ever discuss theories and ideas, we don't get into anything confrontational between ourselves or other people. Wow, that really sounds like an OKCupid profile but it's a pretty good summary, I think
There you have it, either chime in with some advice, meet up for a beer or both! Look forward to hearing from you all

Reappearing Wallet

So my mom, grandma, and nanny all decided to go on a trip to Biloxi, MS for a few days. Last night, i decided to go to the arcade while they went to the casino. After a while, they took a break and went to the room, so i decided to take a break as well. i got back from the arcade and i took my black wallet out of my bag in the hotel room and counted all my change. i took the quarters and my arcade receipts and put it in my left converse, and put every other coin in my right shoe. i did this because i planned on wearing sandals the whole trip, but i arrived in converse, so i used them to separate my change. Then, i left my purse by my bag. My grandma, mom, and nanny left to the casino while i showered and i had the door latched to where no one could get in. after i showered, i took the latch off and my mom came in for a while. Then she leaves and i lay down and crash. They came back during the middle of the night while i slept, and my grandma stayed up all night because she couldn't sleep. well, i wake up this morning and i felt the need to look for my purse. For some reason i couldn't find it. We all looked EVERYWHERE, MULTIPLE times. i was even like, "yall, i won't be upset at all if you accidentally took it, i'm just upset because i left it right there next to the bag and it's gone, all i care about is if i find it fully intact." they were confused too because my nanny SAW me take my purse out of my bag before they left and i slept. It could not have left the room, and we're very organized, so there was no sign of my wallet. We suggested that maybe we remembered wrong or something, as we were open to literally any idea. So we went to the lobby, contacted lost and found in case it was still in the arcade by some crazy chance and nope, it wasn't there. we all knew 100% that it did NOT leave the room and neither did i, or anyone. no one could have broken in, but i most strongly believed housekeeping must have stolen it. The weirdest part is, i didn't want to bring my purse anywheres, i just felt some weird need to find it. So we go down several floors to my nanny's car and we're like "okay let's worry about this later, we gotta eat first" so i tried to take deep breaths and remind myself, "it's gonna be okay, we'll find it." i knew i left my polaroid camera under the seat in the car, so at least i had that. But what happened next was so strange. MY WALLET WAS NEXT TO THE CAMERA. My nanny had her keys on her this whole time, so nobody could have broken in or gone into her car, and i did not leave the room. My grandma stayed up all night, so nothing could have gotten past her. it was so weird how it got there because we never went to the car after 5pm, and i had my wallet in the room with me at 11/midnight to count my change. What happened next freaks me out so much. i found a picture, taken on my polaroid, in the mirror of our hotel room, with no one holding it, and no one else in the room. i keep my polaroids in my wallet, and i do NOT remember taking this. My grandma started crying and my nanny has a headache from this and we all caught the chills. However, more money showed up in my wallet. This is truly the most unexplainable moment i've ever had. The car was about 20 floors beneath us, and no one went back to the car. My nanny had her keys the whole time, and i remember putting my wallet down next to the bed before i went to sleep. My grandma is healthy and going strong so nothing would have made it past her. If anyone can give me ideas about what may have happened, i'd love to hear it. Trust me, i wish this was a fake story, maybe i could base a writing off of it, but the fact that it actually happened creeps me out so much. Doesn't help that i enjoy watching conspiracy theories late at night either.

Mystery cigar review #2

I am obligated to say from the outset that I have never written a review in my life. I don't use this as an excuse for the poor quality of my descriptions, tastes and opinions, but, it does explain the format I decided to use. Cigar Broskies' system (with some minor variations considering it is a mystery cigar) is what I am basing my review on because I believe it to be the best with it's breakdown and scoring and I have no sense of imagination, creativity and originality. That being said, let's get to it. Note: If you are not familiar with Cigar Broskies review format (Why the hell aren't you reading those reviews?) it is broken down into 5 categories worth 20 points each. Since I don't know how much this cigar costs, I am going to reassign the twenty “value” points. I believe that there is nothing more important than flavor, so I am going to make it's impact worth 30 points. The other ten points I am going to divide between Construction and Strength making each of their values worth 25.
Country: ?
Wrapper origin: ?
Wrapper type: ?
Filler / Binder: ?
Length: 6.5”
Ring: 50-52?
Cost: ?
Appearance: The most obvious thing about this cigar is it's “shaggy” foot. Thanks to the foot, no toasting was necessary when lighting. Besides the foot, the wrapper had a very “toothy” look. Correct me please, but, I think this means it is veiny and bumpy and rough looking. It is also a dark wrapper that I would guess is maduro. Overall it is an attractive cigar. (Points awarded: 16.5 out of 20)
Construction:The cigar was firm in my hand. This torpedo shaped cigar cut firmly and cleanly with my brand new Cuban Crafters “Perfect” cutter (thanks Chuck). The pre-light draw was....firm, but, not tight. It tasted like a cigar. This thing lit up like a forest fire with it's shaggy foot. (Points awarded 21 out of 25)
Strength: At first light this is not a real heavy cigar. I think that is because of the unwrapped “shaggy” foot. Things start out not light but not heavy either. Things change rather quickly when the wrapper gets fully involved. The only way I can describe it is “Full-Medium” flavor.. I personally gravitate to stronger cigars so this score may be a little high for people who prefer a milder cigar. (Points awarded 22 out of 25)
Flavor: This category, in my opinion, is the hardest because who can account for taste? And what the hell flavors did I just taste? That is exactly why it accounts for more points than any other category. I think I tasted wood and cocoa and wood. I know whether I liked a cigar or hated it. Or if it fell somewhere in between. I enjoyed every one of these that I smoked. (Points awarded 26 out of 30)
Addittional Notes: I smoked 3 cigars in the writing of this review, the last one of which is still smoking as I write this. I am a every day beer drinker. I drank Coors Light for the second two cigars but for the first one I had a very local, very tasty beer called Biloxi Blond. The only place to get it is at the Beau Rivage Hotel/Casino in Biloxi Ms. (Do you think I could get some endorsement dollars for that product placement?)
Overall: I am 46 yrs old and have been smoking cigars for less than two years. What the hell do I know? I know that this cigar lit up quickly and burned evenly all the way to the nub. I think they all took about one hour and 15-30 mins (who remembers when you lit it and when it went out?) and I know that the ash held on for about one inch increments. I know that I had fun smoking and trying to write a review on these cigars. And, finally, I am glad that Nivuahc, a true BOTL, included me in the 2nd Mystery Cigar review..I stand behind my final rating of 85.5. (Did I do the maths right? You know how we are with math.) Now, I think I have time to go smoke one of the Cuenca Y Blancos I have in my humidor.
BTW I have one more left. Would anyone like to try it and tell us what you think? I know Nivuahc would approve.
Smoke on Brothers and Sisters.
