Casino Resolutions for 2009

Tuesday, December 30th, 2008
Gifts are great...just not mittens and backpacks.

Gifts are great...just not mittens and backpacks.

Lists, lists and more lists!  Best of, worst of, most notable, most notorious.  So as not to be left off the year-end bandwagon, this week we are going to list some New Year’s resolutions we’d like to see the casinos make for 2009.   (Feel free to add your own suggestions in the comments section.)

To all casinos both large and small; please resolve to stop giving away dumb stuff.  I love “gifts” – quote marks used because we both know I have more than paid for them with my play — but puh-leeze make it something I would even remotely consider using.

For instance, I am the proud owner of Casino Arizona’s latest marketing giveaway — mittens and a scarf.  Uh, did someone miss the Arizona in that name?  If you’re trying to make an impact, wouldn’t you want to give a gift that has some sort of relationship to your business?  Yeah, black mittens and a fuzzy scarf immediately say “Let’s go to the casino…in sunny Arizona” to me.  The month before, a thin “stadium blanket” was the featured free gift.  (This fascination with cold weather is really starting to make me wonder if they know something we don’t and the newest Ice Age is upon us starting in the Arizona desert.)

Holiday Gifts for Casino Gaming Fans

Friday, November 28th, 2008

Do you need gifts for poker players?  Gifts for gamblers?  Gifts for slots players?  We’ve got you covered!  We’ve done all the work for you in gathering in one spot a great selection of gifts you can buy for the gambling fans on your list.  Lots of special gift items — in all different price ranges — are available through our specially-designed “Gift Guide.”  Here are just a few of the cool gifts you can choose from:

For her

Sparking crystals and silver make up this “well-suited” pendant from Eve’s Addiction.  Called the “Lucky Casino Pendant,” I would wear this on a black sweater or turtleneck to really show off the shine.  $38 

I really like these red and black drop earrings!  You have to look closely to see the four card suits represented in these hand-painted enamel on vermeil Poker earrings designed by artist Teresa Starkweather.  Also available as clip-on earrings.  SALE $26.99 ($30)

 
This cute Christmas ornament with it’s Lucky 7’s will delight the slot player on your list. A unique gift or stocking stuffer! $6.99

 

For Him

These handsome poker chip cufflinks are made from fiber optic glass which is made by fusing millions of fiber optic glass strands together creating glass that changes color when seen under different lighting conditions. Cufflinks arrive in hiqh-quality chrome presentation box. Covered by Cuff-Daddy’s Lifetime product guarantee.   SALE $28.99 (More than 1/2 OFF the usual price of $59.99!)

Poker players will love these unique designs.  Shop our “WEARABLES” category for T-shirts, hoodies, long-sleeved T’s, camp shirts, and more with interesting and distinctive graphics.  Here’s just one custom design that’s available in a variety of colors.  Prices range from $17 – $20 for the all-cotton, long-sleeved tee-shirt.  

 

Choose from a slew of entertaining DVD’s with a gambling/casino theme like this cult hit from Guy Ritchie “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.”   Cockney boys Tom, Soap, Eddie, and Bacon are in a bind; they owe seedy criminal and porn king “Hatchet” Harry a sizable amount of cash after Eddie loses half a million in a rigged game of poker.  Before the boys can blink, they are caught up in a labyrinth of double-crosses that lead to a multitude of dead bodies, copious amounts of drugs, and two antique rifles.  This movie is a great addition to any DVD collection.  “Unrated – Locked & Loaded Director’s Cut” — Smoking price!  $14.99

Always Wanted to Own a Casino? Here’s Your Chance!

Wednesday, November 26th, 2008
Here's the game for the budding Steve Wynn on your holiday list.
Here’s the perfect gift for that would-be Steve Wynn or Sheldon Adelson on your holiday shopping list.

Yes, Casino Mogul really is a game.  Yes, you can actually buy it.  And, once again, yes, I really, really want this for Christmas.  (And here you thought I was going to try and sell you a half-finished Echelon.  Maybe next year.)

How do you play you ask?  Well, directly from the advertising copy on the box comes this riveting description: 

   “Build, design and manage your own casino!  (Hmm, I would think you would want to design it and then build it.  But, then, what the heck do I know since I’m not (yet) a casino mogul?) 

   “Hire and Fire Staff!”  (Oh yeah, that sounds like fun but better make sure they’re not union before you do it!)

   “Manage Your Clients!  Fleece Them (but keep them happy!”)  I didn’t make that up — it really says that on the box.  They must be talking to the people who run the real casinos.  Except for the happy part.

And my personal favorite right off the box “Become the Bugsy Siegel your parents always wanted you to be — run your own casino and make bucks!” (Well, you would have made bucks, Bugsy, if you had gotten out sometime before October.)

 The game is from Monte Cristo software and you can buy it here — Casino Mogul — for your own budding little gambling boss!  Just one of the items featured in our new gift guide
