DFAW #100: The Black Chip Episode

      Comments Off on DFAW #100: The Black Chip Episode

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 dueforawin@gmail.com if you’re in town.

DFAW #95: Should Hard Rock Have Bought Revel?

      Comments 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. It’s been a little over two years since Hard Rock International announced that it had purchased the Taj Mahal, and almost 9 months since the new Hard Rock Hotel & Casino opened after pumping $500 million into the property. Given what we know now, would Hard Rock have been better off buying Revel (now Ocean)?
