I am always promoting Pittsburgh and our great Metropolitan area. It was great to find Joanne Quinn-Smith who created this Positive Pittsburgh site.
With the extra day in February, here is what I have observed in the Pittsburgh area Casinos.
I was at the Meadows http://meadowsgaming.com with one of my friends. He also hosts our live Sports Talk show (Pittsburgh Sportsline). Mike invited me out for a free lunch. He also wanted to show me their great Poker Room.
Our show is live on Tuesdays from 7-8PM on Public access TV in Bethel Park (BPTV). You can see all of our shows on You Tube if are not able to see us live. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MYeRKa2avr0
Back in the Poker Room, Mike was on a winning streak. Since I have never played in a Poker Room, it was a great way to watch everyone play. Mike was playing at a table where the “Bad Beat Jackpot” was over $100,000.
He introduced me to another Pittsburgh Poker player by the name of Rocky. We will have more info about him in March.
After 4 hours of play, Mike was ready to eat. The people in the Poker Room were very nice to us. It reflects on their first class training of the Poker Room Manager.
Marty, the assistant manager helped me to a table away from the Poker players. Thanks for the great info about Poker too.
The state of the art Poker Room is a very large room. With 26 tables and 9,800 square feet of space it is a great place to play.
Nikki, our waitress gave us a menu with a variety of items to choose from.
Everyone knows how I like a free meal and this one did not disappoint. I had a very good 1/2 pound cheeseburger and french fries. The service was excellent too.
Mike had earned a lot of comps with his many hours of play. Our meals were paid for by his comps. The Poker Room has many different comps to help defray your gambling expenses. Always use your Players Card!
While waiting for Mike I met a few gamblers in the Casino.
Are you familiar with the slot machine “TEXAS TEA”? I was playing on this penny machine with my 9 cent bet. An older gambler needed some help putting in his pin. So I helped him to type in his pin.
Then he began to monetize his free play. He turned his $25 of freeplay into almost $60. This is what I am constantly telling people to do. Way to go Gabe!
As we were talking I found out that he is the next door neighbor of my Uncle in White Oak. That is another reason Pittsburgh is a big city with a small town feel to it.
In the next hour I met a couple playing Video Keno. The husband has had a lot of success at Video Keno. He gave me a few tips about how they plays Keno. He plays 4, 6 or 8 numbers for a dollar each time he makes a bet.
I was betting only a quarter and 7 numbers. He was doing well and had a couple of nice hits. He was also playing the Cleopatra feature like I had learned at the Rivers Casino www.theriverscasino.com
Go to my Blog calendar and click on December 26 and January 5 to learn about Video Keno.
Before this nice couple left, he asked me about Craps. He also told me about his success at the Craps Tables. I asked how often had he won? He didn’t win all the time. When he didwin, he made a lot of money.
I ran into another slot player who told me that he had won $250 in freeplay last Thursday. The Meadows has a special contest called “Meadows Mania” every Thursday night. They give away $25 in freeplay every minute and $250 to ten players each hour. At 7, 8, 9, 10 and 11PM.
Another friend of mine told me a great story too. This happened a couple of weeks ago. Have you ever won the $250 on a Thursday and not heard your name called out? It does happen. You only have 7 days to use that freeplay.
I will call this friend “Lucky 2″. Here is his story.
He was playing some Video Poker, without many winners. He almost lost all of his bankroll that night. “Lucky2″ decided to see if he had any freeplay. Good luck was now on his side. He saw that he had $270 in freeplay. WOW!
Instead of going home “Lucky2″ now had $270 to monetize. “Lucky2″ monetized almost all of his freeplay. He turned a losing day into a profitable evening. He didn’t give up or get mad.
Congratulations “Lucky2″ and thanks for letting me tell this Great story.
