Save The Date: The Casino Royale Challenge #VIMFP

Casino Royale Challenge

Please join us on Friday, October 12, 2012 at 3:00 p.m. for the first (and probably last) Casino Royale Challenge! Let's plan on meeting by the Casino Royale promotions booth. You'll want to wear some kind of smock for this.

Further updating our original story, after twice being denied in my requests for Cinnabon pricing information by @CasinoRoyalLV, I took it upon myself to call their Cinnabon shop and get the prices. The woman who answered the phone was stunned, and I do believe I'm the only person ever to call. I imagine she turned to her co-worker before answering and said, "We have a phone?"

What I learned is that a regular Cinnabon is $4.49, while a Pecan Sticky Roll is $4.99. Use that information to start computing your spend should you win (lose) the Casino Royale Challenge! What combination will you chose if you win $20? Three Pecan Stickies and five Michelobs? Eleven Michelobs and two Cinnabons? The choice is yours, but rest assured you'll have the support of your friends who will cheer you on through your quest for CRC immortality!

Now, we have had varying reports that it may not be possible to win anything other than a jackpot on the machines that Casino Royale designates for the free $50 in slot play promotion. Well, worst case scenario, no one wins anything and we drink a few $1 Michelobs and take over a 100x odds craps table. Or, worst case, someone wins a $1000 jackpot and consumes a tanker truck's worth of beer and cream cheese icing. Or, maybe the worst that could happen is that it is possible to win $50, and I eat nine regular Cinnabons and drink 10 Michelobs, and the sugar and alcohol combine to form a speedball, and I strip down to my underwear and play Wizard of Oz slots while singing "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" at the top of my lungs.

Just come. I promise you, it will be one of the worst days of your life. But in a good way. See you there!

Comments & Discussion:

Dammit! My flight doesn't come in til 5! Please tell me they'll be a live webstream so I can watch from the airport's Cinnabon.

I do hope spectators are allowed at this event.

Specators are allowed, and filming for the purposes of uploading to YouTube is encouraged (unless Casino Royale security puts a kibosh on it).

This definitely has possible trainwreck potential either way you look at it. If none of us manage to win any $$$, that doesn't mean we're not going to be two fisting $1 beers......

Damn! My b'day ain't til the 21st but I may have to come to town earlier just to observe!

Dammit! That's about the time I'll be checking in for my flight... Stupid Cheap Flight deals. I was so "IN" for this. I guess, by the sounds of it, this may be a good thing.

I sincerely hope that there are lots of videos/photos taken to fill me in on Saturday.

For the record, if I won $20, I would choose three cinnabons and 5 Mic's... If I did hit it big, like 1K, I'd buy the same for me, and the rest in Michelob's or Margaritas for the entire joint...



I don't think I'm eligible for the freeplay, so I'll volunteer my consumption services to anyone that wins big and wants to see a real train wreck.
