Tales of Lady Luck are stories during my twenty-five years in the gaming business.
The opportunity I had in 1975 was enormous. There were no casinos on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, and nothing in Louisiana other than horse racing. The Louisiana lottery didn’t get voted in until sixteen years later. We had people hungry for gambling, and they came in droves once the word got out.
Here are some topics my gaming clients found interesting when we would sit around a table in a cocktail lounge at the Riviera Hotel in Las Vegas or Harrah Lake Tahoe. They loved to hear the stories, and at times, they were part of the story. The problems, demands, and things that went wrong are just too crazy to dream up.
