Expect a smile as the Caribbean Stud dealer leans over to scoop up your last $5 chip, leaving you with just enough in your pocket to try and recoup over at the money wheel. If you have anything left after you lose that, you can get a decent meal at the steak house, or an almost decent meal at the buffet.
