August. The month that means the vacation is over. Back to work.
Ahhh, but It's SO good to actually be back here and situated at the Blogger desk of Aces Casino, the Orange County casino night party leader. When you've been dubbed the official "propaganda minister" of the company, you MUST be in the right place.
And believe me -- During the month of August, there's no place we'd rather be. Why, you ask? Simple. For you see, August is the one month out of the year where we publish one blog entry EVERY DAY. (Ed. Note: The best idea I've had in the company's history. Now get to work and make it happen, Blog-Boy.)
Translation: Someone opened their big mouth around these offices and said that we could do 31 straight days of blog articles, and BOOM - It's now the "Law of Aces Casino." Consider this year #2 of the chase for the most useless info in the month of August.
Hey, we're the top orange county casino party on the west coast. Ain't nothin' we can't do. ESPECIALLY when it comes to goofy, useless blog posts.
And, as the official liaison to the Aces Casino Entertainment "Department of Useless Information," we thought that it might be time to remind our throng of some 14 subscribers of some seemingly little-known facts when it comes to the art of casino gaming.
OK, actually, the boss suggested the topic for today's entry. Everybody's a Blog critic. But, it IS a pretty good idea, and yours truly has never shied away from stealing someone else's good idea, so, let's do it. Courtesy of the Orange County casino party leaders, here is Aces Casino's "Top 3 Things We've Known For a LONG time, That Others Never Seem to Figure Out."
#3 -- The "Odds" bet is the best bet on the Craps Table
I thought THIS one was a gimme, but, apparently not, if you go by the countless numbers of players that consistently skip the chance to place this bet behind their original "pass line" bet. In 2010, the Aces Casino Blog touched on how to begin playing the game of Craps in this link, and followed up with Part Two of the series with THIS link, but didn't mention the "Odds Bet." That's coming in Part 3 of the Craps saga, coming soon to a Blog near you.
We're ALWAYS teaching players to place the "Odds Bet," a bet that has no actual decal on the Craps layout to show it's there, but take our word for it - It's there. Placing your Odds Bet right behind your Pass Line bet on the layout is the right place to put it.
Yeah, I know, this doesn't have much to do with casino gaming, but as far as I'M concerned, this is THE number one thing that we've known for a while now, that the Japanese army seems to constantly ignore, time after time.
The Toho Film Company has made some 28 Godzilla films since 1954... We were watching one called "Godzilla, Tokyo S.O.S," which came out some 5 years ago. (Ed. Note: the film came out in 2003.) We watched this film after one of the Aces Casino events last week, a film that is something like #26 in the series. (And YOU thought "Rocky" made too many movies.)
Yep, it's the tried and true format; Godzilla comes poppin' out of the Sea Of Japan, and who's on shore waiting for him? That's right; It's none other than the Japanese army, armed with all kinds of guns, tanks, fighter jets, and even some magic-wand-looking laser-thingy's that shoot lightning bolts at out favorite 20-story buddy.
Heck, in ONE movie, I saw the Japanese built a Godzilla-like robot, to pull a WWE - type thing on Godzilla. Didn't work, he just ripped the robot's head off, and rolled it down the alley for a strike.
That's all. August issue #1 is done. Back tomorrow, with another scintillatingly irrelevant post. Hasta manana!
