I Really Tried
Table games don't interest me because I find them too intimidating, and I don't think I'd be very good at them.
Maybe a change of scenery would help. I stopped by Mount Airy Casino Resort, near Mount Pocono, Thursday morning. It was only my second time there. Let me back up a second. I was there several times in the "old" days. My first visit to the new building was a few weeks ago, to do a story on the arrival of table games. Thursday was my first trip as a consumer.
Same result. I put $10 in a machine, knocked it down to a few dollars, then got it back up to the break even point. I think I was gone in a half hour, not including a walk around the floor and a little "people watching."
This is nothing against the operation. The building in and of itself is spectacular, and it's in a very nice setting. The food looked good, and the staffers I encountered were friendly.
I guess I'm just not a gambler.
