Gambling in Las Vegas is a tradition dating many years back, as is losing money from doing so (for most people). This time, however, the Tropicana in Las Vegas is offering a special deal that really works against the whole “I lost all my money at the slots” thing–if you stand in line to get a free Tropicana player’s card, there’s a +EV promotion where you can play $200 in slots or video poker, and if you lose, you get an immediate $100 back in freeplay, with $100 more in freeplay if you come back 30 days or later. It’s like breaking even, if you have the discipline and time to come back. You must walk to the player’s club and insert your card immediately into the kiosk after you lose. There’s no marker to keep track of your remaining $100, so be sure to keep track of your pulls or hands. We love deals at Vegas, and if you’re a AAA member, you can head to the Tropicana and get deals on rooms with the following link: AAA Discount, Get 15% Off as well as reading up on your plan for dominating the slots on the Tropicana page. Enjoy!
All-time participation and prize pool event records were shattered this year as 6,865 Main Event participants, the third-largest turnout in the 42-year history of the World Series of Poker. The players created a prize pool of $64.5 million for the Main Event, which is the No Limit Hold ‘Em World Championship. Attendance was expected to be down with new online gambling regulations perhaps cutting into the action. This was not the case, however, as huge groups turned out to the Rio to get their shot at millions. If you have WSOP dreams, try our How to Play Poker link to get started on the path to super stardom.
