Episode #20 -Casino Comps Explained…Kind of

2015-01-22 :: A. Bauer

I received an email from a listener asking a question about comps. Now I know they also emailed/asked this of our friends over at You Can Bet on That, which I think is a really cool idea. Having multiple shows give their perspectives on a particular topic is great for getting different opinions, so I hope they answer this as well. Especially considering I’m not an expert.

Be sure to let me know what’s on your Vegas bucket list for next week’s show.

Episode #19 - Vegas Sportsbooks

2015-01-16 :: A. Bauer

In this episode, I am not talking about the best sportsbooks in general. The Mirage, with its Interactive Pro Tables, and the Venitian, with its plentiful and massive screens, topped Vegas Chatters 2014 best of list.

On this show though, I care about value. Of course, I don’t mean when it comes to odds, as those will be consistent throughout. What I and Brooke and I’m sure most of you are concerned with, are free drinks.

Tom Lorenzo, publisher of The Vegas Parlay pointed me to two of his posts:
