Horseshoe Casino -- March 15 - 16, 2011

We've been doing some ramblin' lately, so we thought it time for a bit of gamblin', so we headed to the Horseshoe Casino in Bossier City, Louisiana.

Donna and I enjoy video poker. We are not high-stakes gamblers, though, and it's difficult to find good pay tables for low rollers in the Shreveport/Bossier City area. If you're willing to play at the $1 level or multi-line $.25 level -- which can get pricey when playing at the 5 coin level -- you can find some 9/6 Jacks or Better or even some NSU Deuces Wild. However, at the single-line quarter level, there really isn't anything at the 99.0% level or above that I know of or that is listed at the VP Free site.

Our current game of choice is multi-line Bonus Poker Deluxe, which returns 99.64% with perfect play. The 'Shoe has 50-play and 100-play machines with multi-denomination levels of 1 cent, 2 cent, or nickle play. On this trip, we played mostly at the penny level with 50 hands. Betting 5 coins per line, this meant we were betting $2.50 per play.

Since our room was comped and we had comped meal vouchers for the buffet, we were out very little other than our gambling costs, and we broke about even on this trip.
