He discusses his underrated credit cards and destinations, along with why he thinks Spirit may actually be kind of good. His words.

Other topics covered on the show:

HT of the week to everyone at the Chicago Area Casino Meetup. We were hanging out with the VLO and The Bettor Life gang along with several new and old friends:

  • Harrah’s Joliet was home base and there is no better vacation spot than Joliet in February
  • Everyone had their Diamond cards which was beautiful to see
  • If you’re going to AC for Gamblepalooza, take your Diamond card to Borgata to match to MLife Gold, which you can then match to Hyatt Explorist
  • Overall I was about even as it relates to gambling
  • I got plenty of “Fanboys” during my video poker sessions – A “Fanboy” is 4 to a royal flush with the remaining card completing a straight, but is the suit the same color of the card needed to complete the royal

I’m looking forward to getting my first vp royal flush at Gamblepalooza. Head to for details. Your favorite gambling podcasts will be headed to Atlantic City for loads of fun.

Also, we have a baseball team. There is a minor league team called The Asheville Tourists. Great name. Single-A affiliate of the Colorado Rockies. I love it. I had known about legendary minor leaguer Crash Davis, but for some reason, I never connected the ball club name, that is until recently. So, this podcast is officially a Tourist podcast. We can only hope they have an influencer night. If so, I’ll be in the front row.

I hope you enjoyed the show. Safe travels. Be good to each other.
