On episode 103 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle and Craig look back at Borgata’s opening, talk about Craig’s Vegas plans (or lack thereof), answer a listener question about finding decent hotel rates and low table limits during the summer, then discuss some news:
On episode 102 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz podcast, Kyle and Craig discuss all the news that has happened in the past month while we’ve been doing mostly news-less episodes. First, we check in on AC in 2002 and 1902, including this article written by Dr. David G. Schwartz. Then we get into more current news.

On Episode ONE HUNDRED of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz podcast, Kyle and Craig talk about what it’s like to have been doing this for ONE HUNDRED episodes, what Atlantic City was like ONE HUNDRED episodes ago, and what we think might be different ONE HUNDRED episodes from now. All of this is contemplated as a series of low-stakes wagers, because it’s a gambling podcast (kind of).
Also, we have a trip coming up! We’ll be taking a 100th-episode victory lap in Atlantic City on Friday, June 14th, if anyone wants to come congratulate us on the momentous achievement of showing up and recording 100 times over the course of three and a half years — 101 if you count the episode we had to re-record because Kyle’s computer ate the initial recording. We’ll try to tweet where we’re at regularly, but feel free to send us a message on Twitter @DueForAWin or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re in town.
CraigComments Off on DFAW #95: Should Hard Rock Have Bought Revel?
On episode 95 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle and Craig discuss the news, then get into hypotheticals.

Given what we know now, would Hard Rock have been better off buying Revel (now Ocean)?
