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!
