The other day I was at my parent's house and we were going through the paper and found these coupons for Ellis Island Casino. They were giving away $50 in free slot play to anyone who got a new player's card. Hell yeah!!
So, we got three coupons and me, mom and dad went over to the Ellis Island. It was tiny! It's behind Bally's, just off the strip and they were having karoake night. Ouch! My ears were burning. People that do karoake crack me up. Most of them really think they are good.
Anyway, there was NO catch. You really got $50 in free slot play for nothing. I played all over the place. I tried Monopoly and had no luck. I tried 4 card keno. No luck. I tried Wheel of Fortune. No luck for me but my dad had lots of luck. I finally settled on a poker machine and I hite 4 Aces! Woo hoo! Too bad I was playing dimes instead of quarters. I was almost broke so I had went down to dimes. At any rate, I won $50. So, I played the $50, I won $50 and I walked out the door with $50. Good times! I love free slot play.
I was watching the news today and they said that people were lining up at 5 a.m. today for the job fairs here in town. Are you kidding me????? Our unemployment rate is up over 12 percent and even though the doors didn't open til 9, people were lining up at 5 - ouch! Tomorrow is the day that I'm going to Planet Hollywood and Hard Rock. Jeeez. Fingers crossed I guess. I really don't want to wait in a line - especially not outside in the 115 degree heat.
Anyway, I'm leaving Sunday for L.A. I'm sure I'll have lots of great pictures and stories to tell. My heart is set on being on The Price Is Right. I'm counting on it. hehe How cool would that be???
Have a good weekend kids. smooches!
