Hello, you gambling fools: Just last week, I blogged about the famous gambling movie “Casino” and the, ahem, degree of violence. Think that’s unrealistic for a Las Vegas casino? How about going to Vegas and winning millions of dollars with your buddies by counting cards while running around with stacks of bills taped to your legs, scoring with big-time hotties, and getting comped left and right? Oh yeah, that happens to me ALL the time.
Well, if you want to get a look at what that would be like, you don’t have to wait long. On March 28th, “21” will be released in theaters, a Kevin Spacey movie based on a group of MIT students in the book “Bringing Down the House.” Oh yeah…did I mention that THIS REALLY HAPPENED??? ARE YOU KIDDING ME??? When I was college-age, I was eating pizza for breakfast and watching the same “SportsCenter” highlights for the third time. I think I need to re-evaluate my life.
Anyhoo, I’m not going to beat myself up at the lost millions (or my lack of tape burns) because now I have a shot at redemption. To prepare for what many think will be an all-out blackjack blitz, online casino game provider Entertasia has released the new game Crazy21 which puts a spin on the classic blackjack game. I’m all over this one.
What makes Crazy21 special are the side bets. There’s the Safe Bet, the Highest Hand Bet, and the 777 Jackpot Bet, which allows you to place money on the odds of you being dealt three straight 7s. I like to call this the “Pull a Crisp Bill Out of Your Pocket and Light It on Fire” bet. Call me crazy.
But the other bets make the game intriguing.
