Gambling at the Indian Casino Across the Lake

LakeHavasu_Dec12-10_12_Casino_Boat3So every hour on the hour (from 6:45 am until Midnite) the Tecopa ferry boat departs from the London Bridge dock and takes its load of gamblers across Lake Havasu to the Havasu Landing Resort & Casino.

From our campsite we can see the ferry come and go, and exactly 20 seconds after it passes our campsite, the waves from the Tecopa’s wake roll onto the shore. Now that’s regular.

Jan & I plus our friends Jim and Marianne took the ferry to do some gambling. The boat ride was fun.

However, entering the casino was like walking into an ashtray which made it difficult to concentrate on losing (as I did — but just $20). I was able to take a photo inside the casino of Jan playing a slot machine, but a guard told me not to take anymore. He had a gun. I put the camera away.

The photo is shaky and blurry which pretty much summarizes our gambling spree.

Jim and Marianne made the trip fun, but I think we’ll stick with Megabucks and Powerball.
