E-326: Bluff Financing

Random Vegas
The paddle, as its known, protects the slot where the money goes given in exchange for chips at a table game.  A cooler move, as in they are trying to bring bad luck to the table, is when the dealer takes out the paddle, rotate it 180 degrees before replacing it.  Also known as “Spin the paddle” (@GetARoll with an assist from @VitalVegas)
Twitpic of the week

I can’t be the only one looking at this picture of the Frontier marquee being dismantled and thinking, “Isn’t this what that sign always looked like”?  This marquee could easily be the marquee for any abandon drive-in movie theater.  That isn’t to say it wasn’t cool, it just fit the identity of this property; the Kmart of the strip to Circus Circus’ dollar store.  
Also, am I the only one thinking Palazzo is standing behind the Frontier in this picture, mocking it like a posh little cunt?  Maybe its just me and I have some unresolved issues to address...I still say Vegas Vic looks like he would be that grandfather that throws around the N word like it harkens back to the good ole days.  I’m gonna go ahead and stop typing and schedule an appointment with a therapist.  This @_GrandPaD may have uncovered a repressed memory.
