Isle of Capri Lake CharlesWe ended the “Isle” part of our Isle Road Trip that the beautiful “Isle of Capri Lake Charles”.  This is one of the nicer Isle hotels and casinos and reminded me a lot of the former Isle Casino in Biloxi.

The riverboat, essentially permanently  docked to the shore, is three levels with slot machines on all of them.  The top level also has a nice buffet. (more…)

Remember the days when you signed up for your first player’s card?  If you don’t, it is probably because you don’t have one!

IMG_1437If you caught my last post on our upcoming #IsleRoadTrip, you may be wondering who Isle of Capri is. They are not as big as MGM Resorts, Penn National Gaming, Caesars Entertainment, or Boyd Gaming.  You don’t find them in Vegas, Atlantic City, or Monty Carlo.

The Isle is really more of a mid-west and southern casino company.  And they are not small.  They have 15 gaming and entertainment facilities in Colorado, Florida, Iowa, Missouri, Louisiana, and Mississippi.  Did I mention Mississippi?  They have three casinos there and we’ll be hitting all of them.

OK, the team is just my wife and me but don’t tell anyone.

I thought I’d give you all a heads up on some upcoming travels.  Send me if note (or comment) if you think of anything that would make a good blog post while we are doing our “field research” 🙂

To start with, we are heading to Tunica later this week to celebrate 20 years of casinos in Tunica.  I understand the first casino opened its doors on 19 October 1992 so we should be there on the exact date. There has got to be a story here. (more…)
