#IsleRoadTrip Series

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.



We just got back from a weekend in Tunica.  I’ve got a lot to report so I thought I’d start with some new video slots.

WMS has come up with a series of games called “Colossal Reels”.  Usually, we hit different casinos to try different games but on this trip I spend ½ my slot money on the different variations of this game at each casino (I saw it at Gold Strike, Resorts, and Horseshoe)


I still remember where I was sitting the first time I played a slot machine.  We had just walked into the casino with lights and sounds everywhere. We walked up to a machine and were trying to figure out where to put the money.  Then we saw we had to get a ticket to feed in.

We found the machine to get a $10 ticket  and were confounded by the “lines”  These are buttons usually at the bottom of the machine or sometimes on the screen that let you pick which 5 items in a row you want to play. You look at the game and think, “OK, three rows, so three lines, right?”  Nope, there are 20 lines!
