The Muckleshoot does several things to reward their players. On the downside, they rake $5 for every pot. On the upside, there are several jackpots and bonuses. They splash the pots of the higher limit games with $100 every hour (I’ve won those twice). They have a $15,000 bad beat jackpot, and during the week they have a $500 high-hand bonus (on the weekends it drops to $300). I hit quad nines, quad jacks and a 7 high-straight flush. Only the straight flush was good enough for the high-hand, though.
I tipped the dealer 10% (after I took out an appropriate amount for taxes) and I also tipped Darla and Cherryl, my two favorite wait staff. It’s a good day.
