Benjamin Eckstein’s Spanish Score


Exploring the MASSIVE ways to enjoy your online betting experience, and stumbled across Spanish 21. It’s basically the same as blackjack, but with more options and possibly higher payouts.

But there is one YUGE difference. In Spanish, the table game, not the language, all the 10 cards are stripped from the deck, which moves the odds in favor of the dealer. So the deck has only 48 cards.

Some experts have said that Spanish 21 is the best bet at the casino. Why? If you get blackjack and the dealer gets blackjack, you WIN, baby! It’s just a PUSH in regular 21.

They also have a very cool “Match the Dealer” side bet. You win if any of your first two cards match the dealer’s up card. Just make sure that when you click into the online casino, and wanna play Spanish, check to see if they’re using six or eight decks. Only one thing left to say. OLE!!!


And we’re NOT talking about Denver. Lemme introduce you to Love Cloud, a business started by longtime pilot Andy Johnson.

You’ll fly around Vegas and pick one of three options. The romantic dinner flights, the wedding and vow renewal flights or the straight up mile high club experience flights. You can choose the silver package, which is a 45-minute flight, the gold package at 60 minutes, or the platinum package which keeps you in the air for a full 90 minutes.

There are other options but I would like to recommend the romantic dinner flight. You’ll have your own pilot, OBVIOUSLY, DUH, and flight attendant. You probably wanna take the three-course deal, which comes with your choice of an appetizer, two entrees and two desserts and 90 minutes above Vegas. And they also have a vegan option.

If you really wanna impress your wife, girlfriend or just some random office worker, get the romantic limo package as well. It includes transportation to and from the aircraft, a bottle of champagne, a dozen long-stemmed roses and a box of premium chocolates.

The dinner package will run you $1,795 and the limo deal is $300. So, for just over two dimes, you are the KING of the air for an hour and a half. And just a side note, there’s also a Love Cloud in Los Angeles.


Looking out west tomorrow night on the MLB board and gonna fly with the Angels over the Athletics. Michael Lorenzen’s 7-6 record and 4.78 ERA for L.A. is not making me warm and fuzzy, but his work against Oakland this season has been wicked good. In two starts against the A’s, Lorenzen has pitched 13 innings and allowed only one earned run. That’s a ZERO-POINT-SIX-NINE ERA and that’s MONEY!

On the other side of the equation, Adrian Martinez has been horrible for the A’s this month. Yo Adrian has been BASHED for 24 hits and 16 earned runs over the last 14 innings and my calculator tells me that is a 10.29 ERA. TEN-POINT-TWO-NINE! As long as Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani are in the starting lineup, gotta throw a super size pile of chips at the Halos.
