October 24, 2017 Michael Mason Trager
Today on the show we have a special guest, Eric Rosenthal. Eric is a casino loyalty expert as well as someone who just loves casino loyalty systems, and he is going to be one of the speakers at the first ever ZorkFest event. He is a contributor to several gambling and travel related websites and podcasts and discusses all things Atlantic City and his passion for “Comp Harvesting.” Using his knowledge of casinos and the travel industry, Eric teaches people how to travel for free and maximize value for your gambling dollar. We have been spending a little bit of time in London this weekend, and we got an opportunity to visit two of the London casinos last night after a very nice pub dinner in Hampstead. In Part 1 of this series, we are going to talk about our observations about the casinos in the UK, because they’re not as bad as everybody thinks! They are certainly different, but they actually have some very nice elements to them. So stay tuned as we go over our experiences at the Hippodrome and Empire Casino and the major differences we observed.

Key Points From This Episode:

• Why we chose to visit the Hippodrome Casino.

• An overview of the Hippodrome layout, the “vibes”, and different rules.
