Come Monday..The Buffalo Run Gamble

“Come Monday…” is a weekly series that will involve a review of, or commentary about,  websites, movies, documentaries, television shows, sports, music, and whatever else may tickle my fancy at the time.  Be assured that these reviews will be generally positive, as in accordance to the Jimmy Buffett song “Come Monday.”  This is subject to change, however.  In fact, I would be most derelict in my duties to neglect going on a rant every once in a while.  For rants promote change, and change can be good—right?  Therefore, since good is generally considered as being a positive force in 99.3% of the parallel universes that I am aware of, even a rant could be considered as being something positive, and a genuine hissy-fit would be even better (so I’m told).

The financial strain of massive debt is spreading through Oklahoma casinos.  Some Oklahoma casinos are borrowing millions, plus interest, creating hundreds of millions of dollars of debt.  Continuing to add even more debt with more expansion and high hotels—debt and interest that must be paid.  So, who pays for their mountains of debt?  You do.  These casinos rely on getting more money from their main revenue source: slot machines.  All casinos control the percentages paid out by their slot machines.  As these casinos sink deeper in debt, they keep more and more money while customers lose more and more, but not all casinos are the same.  Buffalo Run Casino & Resort is different.  Buffalo Run is debt free.  Instead of paying large sums of debts, Buffalo Run wants to pay you.  Buffalo Run claims the loosest slots and highest payout percentages in the state of Oklahoma.  Why pay for some casino’s debt?  Play to win at Buffalo Run Casino & Resort, Miami, Oklahoma.

What you just read (or at least was supposed to have read) was the text from a television commercial that had to have been the brainchild of someone who has been faunching at the bit to use the political science in marketing associate’s degree they obtained from taking correspondence courses while mopping floors at [NEO A&M].  For not only did it start out sounding like a political commercial, it also had the look and feel of one, and what kind of commercial is just about everyone especially sick of around now?

Much to my dismay, I could not find an embeddable video of the commercial.  So, you will just have to take my word for it.

Now, if you find yourself within the broadcast range of [KSPR], you just might get to see it for yourself.  For it is currently airing on that Springfield, Missouri television station.

Well, at least it was.  For it has been around a week since the last time I saw it on KSPR, and since I haven’t seen it on any of our other local stations, the word may have got out that it is really not a political commercial, which would mean that they would not have to air it if they didn’t want to.  Yeah, it is not that we just live life at a slower pace around here—we are slow!
