Lynx Casino

All Bets Off For Good, Clean Fun
by David Sherwin

April 22, 2005
Psst! (heh, heh) Y'wanna good time? Wanna win some cash? Meet a coupla girls? C'mere with me. Lemme take you to this cool place.

Whazzat? It's called Lynx Casino, I think. Hey, don't look at me! I didn't pick the name. It pretty much gives what it says, anyway.

We're here. Whaddaya think? Yeah, I've seen better places too, and that carpet looks like it hasn't been washed since the Rat Pack was hot, but it looks like the booze is free. I'm gonna go off to have me a little chat with that babe by the roulette table.

Hey, I'm back! So, didja play any games? No?

Yeah, I guess that that "video poker" game kinda does suck. You say you lost five hundred bucks in the first five minutes? You liked it enough to play that long?

Last time I was here I spent a couple of hundred on the slots. I didn't seem to win any money, and the bets sure are small. I wonder why they put a five dollar limit on each game? I heard some guy won three hundred one time, but he lost it the same night.

You broke already? Listen, you can get some extra cash from that sweet cashier over there. She'll front you a couple of thousand, but I wouldn't push it.

Hey -- I got a better tip for you. Start out every trip here with the blackjack table, and you'll walk away a winner! I swear that dealer doesn't know what he's doing, and odds are pretty good that you'll score somethin' big. It's the best action here, bro!

Craps? Never play it, but they got a table over there. Looks okay, but kinda dirty, like everything else in this joint. Yeah, I like potted plants too, but somethin' else would be nice. And that Elvis impersonator? Sheesh!

Listen, let's blow this dump. Sure looks like it's got more run down since the last time I was here, and I don't wanna spend my free time talking to a bunch of drunks. Hey, lemme take you to this new place down the street...

Ah, the lights of Vegas.
I never get this question right.
Just pump money into that machine!
At least there is more strategy than slots.
