Gold Strike TunicaGold Strike is one of nicest casinos in Tunica – many would say “The best”. I was a bit disappointed in them this weekend.

Several of us were playing Paradise Fishing Saturday night. I dropped out for a bit to hit the ATM but the other two people with me as well as another guy kept playing.  When I got back, There was a error message across all the screens and no one could cash out. (more…)


What is your favorite casino in Tunica and why?  Judging from the crowd on Friday night, the Gold Strike would be picked by many of you.  The place was packed.

So why is it so popular?  It is certainly one of the more upscale casinos in the area.  There is marble everyplace and there is no way you will miss the giant golden hotel sitting on the relatively flat Mississippi delta. (more…)

Last month I mentioned my falling stats due to not blogging as much.  As any social media expert will tell you, few posts = low traffic. At the time, the big news was that the Social Media Tourism conference had chosen Tunica for its next conference in November (even more important now).  I posted about this and resolved to be a better blogger.

Heres where the weirdness started… I made a trip to Vegas and my traffic started rising before I even put out a post. The flooding around the Mississippi especially around Memphis and Tunica was becoming news and I’m guessing some of my Tunica posts were becoming news too (see first 4 columns in the post above)  Of course, being a Tunica Casino regular, I was glued to the internet watching what happened. I wrote about Tunica looking like a “Reel’em in game” (a popular video fishing game at many of the casinos) and when I saw some good pictures and videos, I did a post on this too. These things compounded and I’m now getting well over a 1000 hits a day.

As You can see, my blog traffic is taking a major dip!  This is what happens when real live intrudes into your blogging activity. Until I work my way into being a highly paid Tunica gambling and blogging consultant (or win big in Tunica 😉 ) , I’ve still got to pay the bills with a real job. (more…)

In my quest for great deals in Tunica, I ended up at an unlikely place, Gold Strike Tunica. We found a room for $53.75 (see my last post)  which is a nice price for Gold Strike but a high price for someone “thrifty” like me (Mrs gambler uses another word 😦 ) (more…)

Spring break is almost here and you know what that means?  At least one of our kids will be home from school to watch our dogs 🙂

We are headed back to Tunica March 13. (more…)
