July Gambling Podcast – Robosaurus Promotion at Seminole Casino in Hollywood, Florida – A video podcast hosted on Youtube! The American Casino Guide has a monthly podcast hosted by the book’s author, Steve Bourie, who talks about topics of interest to travelers who like to visit casinos and during the course of each show he interviews a special guest from the world of casino travel or gambling.
For the July edition, Steve does something completely different. The video shows Robosaurus, a 45-foot-tall robotic dinosaur, destroying a car at the Seminole Casino in Hollywood, Florida as part of a special casino promotion. This isn’t really going to teach you anything about gambling, but you’ll have an awful lot of fun watching it!
Footage includes video shot from inside the Robosaurus cockpit which is located just above his (her?) fire-breathing nostrils. Special thanks go out to Steve’s son Matt who was brave (crazy?) enough to climb into the cockpit and sit behind the pilot to shoot the special footage. If you have a fast Internet connection, be sure to watch it in HD. To see the podcast, go to: http://www.americancasinoguide.com/gambling-podcasts
