The Best Tunica Casino Hotels & Resorts from $50 - Free ...

Mississippi/North Carolina Poker Rooms

I'm right in the middle of a few different rooms, all ~4hr 15 mins, +/- 15 minutes. I plan to do once a month, staying overnight on a Friday/Saturday and then playing the next day. I've moved away from a casino and the couple random home games I play in don't really scratch that itch. 1/2 NLHE.
Looking for any advice on whether or not it would be enjoyable, clean, cheap rooms/hotel nearby. Something to do if I'm not playing cards or good food/bars nearby.

I got to live another man’s life for a week when my brother took me on an epic golf trip. Call me Cinder-Fella! (Story and links to photo albums in comments)

My older brother and I went different ways. He became a successful attorney and I got married, had a few kids and went to work. After years of struggle I landed a union job as a maintenance electrician in an iron foundry. A couple of years after that my 14 year old son (now 29) was diagnosed with Leukemia. We enrolled him in a clinical trial that lasted almost 4 years and a year after that the plant closed and I was out of a job. I kicked around and finally landed as a 56 year old maintenance man with a grain processor making half of what I used to. My wife survived lymphoma but was out of work for a couple of years. She finally landed a 32 hour a week job that has benefits so we got that going for us.
The only vacation we’ve ever took was when Make-a-Wish sent us to the Pro Bowl. I’ve never been away from my family for more than a couple of days since I got married in ’84.
I’m not complaining. My life is great. My kids are alive and my family is together. We both get a steady paycheck. For us it doesn’t get much better than that nor does it need to.
There isn’t much money left for extras. Certainly little for golf. My now retired brother bought me some clubs and a 2 year membership so we could spend time together and I could be introduced to the golfing community.
Here’s my original WITB post
We've been playing together every week since May 2016 and it has been great. This year his sons took his wife to Europe over the 4th of July. Unable to think of any good reason to go to Europe, he took us on a golf trip.
I managed a couple of hundred spending money but he took care of the rest. He travels a lot and saved up reward points for all our rooms (separate of course) except one. We used Golf Now and only paid 16.00 to 22.00 per round with the exception of Tunica National.
Sunday was our first day and we played Piper Glen in Springfield IL. Dave gave me a hard time about pictures on a golf trip and I was focusing on playing the course so I didn't get many pictures that first day.
Piper Glen
After a night at his house we headed for Tunica, stopping at Indian Springs GC in Fillmore IL. This course was built and is ran by a retired contractor and his son and daughter-in-law and felt like a big playground in the woods built just for us.
Indian Springs
We arrived in Tunica on Monday night. and checked into the Hollywood Casino. The 4th of July rate at the casino was only $43.00 per night for a king room. I shot some dice, only betting the come line because I don’t know how to play, and played the machines. I went down with $80.00 and went back to the room 4 hours later with $160.00 and drank gin and tonics constantly.
We played Tunica National on Tuesday. We paid full rate for the golf but being afternoon on the 4th the price was right. They gave me a mark fixer and had a beverage cart driven by a pretty girl named Ginger. The carts had GPS. I felt like a celebrity.
Tunica National
On Wednesday we played River Bend Links in Tunica. It’s billed as a true Scottish Links course and was a lot of fun. The clubhouse attendant gave me a huggie.
River Bend Links
We headed for Memphis after playing River Bend and spent a fun night on Beale street blowing my winnings on bar-b-que, beer and blues. I bought a raffle ticket for a Boss Hoss motorcycle. We spent most of our night in a Juke Joint partying with a nice Australian attorney and his wife and another couple from somewhere.
Beale Street
Thursday was nursing a hangover and travel day. We went to Carbondale IL and took my daughter, a 2nd year graduate student, to dinner. After a relaxing night in the hotel we played Hickory Ridge. The Gator-ade was 4 bucks but the app price for the golf was cheap.
Hickory Ridge
He dropped me off at home in Central Illinois on Friday night. I had an epic time. If anyone finds a glass golf shoe in any of those places bring it to me… I’ll need it next year!
EDIT: Wow. Thank you all so much. I'm glad you enjoyed my story. My brother has been golfing for 35 years and he says he makes friends at every course he plays. I hope that maybe someone is inspired to help someone else, perhaps someone young and disadvantaged or whatever. Giving the gift of the love of golf is something that will never be used up or go out of style or end up in a closet gathering dust. It can be expensive but there's a lot of good deals at fun courses out there. There's clubs all over facebook and craigslist and ebay if you don't mind used. See you at the clubhouse!
EDIT EDIT: Thanks for the Gold!!!

Are these days gone forever?

I used to play poker back in 2003-5 a lot. I quit gambling and drinking back in 2005 and became a workaholic in my family businness. It was sold and I have free time now and wondered how much poker has changed and if I could get back into it on a budget.
Back in the day I would go to Tunica and get really nice rooms for $25 a night flat at good casino hotels because of the poker promos. I would play all day and most of it lower limit. I would eat like a king at great buffets for free (Binions). I would enjoy Aces cracked $100 almost every day.
Enjoy great food free, cheap rooms almost free with no resort fees (25 max), and all the promos and low rake I made a few hundred a day on low limit. All I had to play was low limit a few hours a day.
Are those days over? If so what happened?

Planning a sort of last minute trip..suggestions?

Hey guys, thanks for indulging this post. I know there are a ton of FAQs, but I've got a unique situation and wanted to get some input. I'm switching jobs next month and have a week between, and have some money saved up so I'm going to splurge on a trip to Vegas.
This will be the week of Nov 7 (election week, no less). I get off Friday the 4th, don't have to be at work until Nov 14.
Money is not unlimited, but I'm also not broke, so I can splurge. I have airline miles so the flight is free (Delta), and I have enough to cover whatever day/time I want to go.
I have been to Vegas once before, to Defcon, with a group from work. This will be my first time totally recreationally, and I will be by myself.
I have been waffling between getting a really cheap room (places like Circus Circus has like $50 or less per night even with resort fees) or splurging and getting a "cheap" room at a really nice place like the Bellagio. I want to stay in a hotel with a casino, for sure. A long time ago I used to go to Tunica in Mississippi to gamble, so any player's card credits I might have are going to be with Harrah's/Caesar's (probably all expired though)
So, I guess I'm looking for some input on that decision (where to stay: nice or cheap)
Also, what would be the best days? I'm kind of zeroing in on Sunday through Thursday. Number of days isn't set it stone, but I want to have enough time to do plenty of things. I'll probably play a ton of craps, but I also want to see some other stuff (nuke museum, some pawn shops, maybe get out to the hoover dam, etc). What are going to be the best days with the best rates? Will there be shows to see during the week?
This post got a little rambling towards the end, but just want to get some input from locals or regulars about getting the most out of a last minute trip, but without putting too much pressure or getting to uptight about it.
