Today’s trip to Casino Montelago at the Lake Las Vegas resort was +BV.
That’s plus bowl value.
The promotion that enticed us to take the trip out there was a $20 gas card giveaway for 500 slot points earned. Video Poker costs double, but that’s still only $1000 coin-in required. The same action at Terribles gets you $5 in gas, and we’ve been all over that deal so this really was a must-gamble. Montelago even has full pay machines too, including Deuces Wild at 100.76% payback!
When I went up to claim my freebie, I was in for a pleasant surprise. Not only had I qualified for the free fuel, I was also entitled to a piece of pottery too. Well, how could I refuse?
In fact, Claire could – and did – refuse. You see, she’d already seen the display and knew exactly what delights we were in for:
"It’s not too late, you could still have his and hers matching bowls", offered the friendly clerk. Defying everything Jean Scott ever taught her, she still managed to say no. So I am alone in being the proud owner of this fine piece of ceramic craftsmanship.
By craftsmanship, of course, I mean tat. But it is the first piece of Vegas tat I’ve ever turned upside down to see if it was made in Stoke…
Nope, it wasn’t.
