Clue/Question:  Casinos on the “Strip” make so much money because lots of people go to – –

(“LOST WAGES” is probably more appropriate.  But, the puzzle answer applies just as well.  Just go for the buffets, the sights, and the shows.  If you want to play the games of chance set a strict budget, and stick to it.  Don’t allow yourself to be seduced by the lights and bells and hubbub.  These people are master marketers, and they prey on our baser emotions.  It’s extremely rare to ‘beat the system’, because the odds are stacked against you.  Only one half of one percent of folks qualify as ‘professional gamblers’, and they play very methodically – not emotionally.  You have a slightly better chance at becoming a professional athlete, than a professional gambler.  Listen to yer uncle!

No new clue words this day, however all of the jumbles were coming up as new.  None came off as difficult, for me.  The answer letter layout was a fine nine letter jumble.  It disguised the final answer very well.

Great cartoon of the Vegas “Strip”!  You can tell that Mr. Knurek has spent a significant amount of time there.  I liked how he inserted himself into the cartoon.  Sort of like Alfred Hitchcock in his movies!  If you do go to Vegas, make sure you book a room at the renowned Jumble Hotel and Casino!  I hear they have some lovely fountains!  LOL!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    I went to Vegas with a group. I lost $500 (almost all my budgeted amount) at the blackjack table. Coincidentally, one of my group won $800 at the blackjack table (different one). I think I should have just given her my money. The only time I ever won was when I was time-limited and won a few hands. I had to leave and ended up $60 ahead. 😀

    PS. I finally got back to the digital version of the daily paper. Turns out they converted the process and had new links and some other changes. It’s a bit buggy, but it works OK, and I can still download an image of the daily Jumble to work offline. 😀

    Glad to hear you’re back where you want to be, Damid! The only time we ever really *won* at a casino was when we hit a machine that was a “run-away”. It paid a varying amount no matter what came on the screen, until it started ringing like we hit the jackpot. I scooped up all the coins we had amassed and ran to cash them out before a casino employee came over to tell my wife they could pay us the jackpot, as it was a “run-away”. We made out with something like $230 !!! Did we feel guilty??? Hell no! LOL!
