10 New Slot Machines – The Monday Link (Again)

Every Monday – The Monday Link

What’s new in the business of slot machines?  What is your favorite new slot?

Our friend John Grochowski writes for
He recently reviewed 10 new slots that are new now in casinos, or are on their way to a casino near you.

John says, “Every year, hundreds of new slot machines are released to compete for the affections of players. New themes, new graphics, bonuses, and ways to play keep us coming back for more. It will be no different in 2018. Already, new games are making their way to casino floors. Here are 10 of the best that are sure to command players’ attention.

“10 NEW (AND AWESOME) SLOT GAMES IN 2018”, is operated by the world’s largest online gaming venue.  The 888 blog, also free to all, is relatively new but boasts an impressive lineup, including Henry Tamburin’s “Ultimate Blackjack Guide” and the AP Heat blog by gambling mathematician Eliot Jacobson, which analyzes ways that advantage players can attack a variety of games. The content gets updated frequently.”



Ten Things I Never Knew About Las Vegas Until I Ran a High-Roller Suite – The Monday Link

Every Monday is “The Monday Link”


Have you always wondered what life in the high-roller suites was like?  I have…….I could only imagine what it would be like to betting thousands of dollars on one hand of anything, with a dealer, butler, and host by my side.  My only extra request might be to have all 31 flavors of Baskin & Robbins’ ice cream – or all of Ben & Jerry’s.  Not much to request, right?

I had different plans for today’s link, but when I saw this on Twitter, I had to share it.  Brandon Presser wrote this article for Bloomberg, and he describes his experience as “A stint managing premier client relations at the Cosmopolitan revealed secrets that probably should stay in Vegas.”  I couldn’t stop reading it!

This is for all my podcasting friends who are Las Vegas nerds like me. After reading this article, I’m convinced that some things should definitely stay in Vegas. 

Real requests like a chinchilla-fur hammock, Louis XIII cognac, priced at $4,300 a bottle, or sending butlers to such glamorous places as In-N-Out Burger and Target. It’s a fascinating read. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.
