00:01 Anthony Gargano: Hey, everybody! Welcome to the latest episode of TropCast. This is where we give you our fun podcast look at Tropicana. All things Tropicana, Atlantic City. I’m Anthony Gargano and here is Maureen Crowley Williams, our MCW, my fellow Tropicana traveler. Good morning, MCW.
00:22 Maureen Crowley Williams: Good morning.
00:23 AG: This is the best, you know why?
00:25 MW: ‘Cause it’s spooky!
00:26 AG: Yes, you know why? ‘Cause I love Halloween. Now, here at the Trop, we got an incredible Halloween weekend planned. Now, are you a fan of Halloween?
00:36 MW: Love Halloween.
00:37 AG: What is it about it? Like I always think about the same thing. Like I love… Like I’m already starting to watch scary movies. Like before we go out, I’m gonna hit up On Demand and I’m gonna look at some of the scary movies. I need to get in the mood. I love getting into the mood of things, and I know that I’m way too old to enjoy Halloween…
00:57 MW: No, you’re never too old, that’s why everybody likes Halloween.
01:00 AG: And I like the spooky stuff.
01:01 MW: You’re never too old.
01:02 AG: Like I like the scary. I’ve always… I wanna believe in all this stuff. Like I watch all those shows, like the ghost shows, the medium shows, all that stuff. Like our old friend, Jeremiah Trotter, if you’re a football person, you’ll know who Jeremiah Trotter is, and he was in this show… This is the greatest, MCW. He was in this show where he went to a haunted asylum.
01:28 MW: Right.
01:29 AG: It was a hospital. And I forget the name of the show, it was awesome. Like it was one of these shows where you go in and they see if it was scared or whatever it was, and you’re hearing things. I went on a… I once went on a…
01:42 MW: Well, it’s pitch black, right?
01:44 AG: Yeah, completely pitch black. And the old asylum, which is perfect. So there is… I once went on a ghost tour, you ever do a ghost tour?
01:53 MW: I have done a ghost tour. In the back in the woods.
01:56 AG: Where did you go? See, I went in New Orleans.
02:00 MW: I did one… I did… Oh, God. Somewhere in Jersey. In Sewell, New Jersey, they have tours you could go back at night. I think it was like a midnight tour.
02:07 AG: A midnight woods ghost tour?
02:10 MW: Yeah, and I did the Eastern State Penitentiary too.
02:11 AG: That’s cool! Did you really?
02:13 MW: It was really fun. Yeah.
02:14 AG: What was the… What was it like being in the woods? Like was it…
02:17 MW: Creepy! They pop out. It’s pitch black and there’s hay everywhere.
02:21 AG: So it was one of those deals where there’s people pop out and scare you.
02:26 MW: Yeah.
02:26 AG: So I went on a ghost tour where you went into these like old historic places, and they have them in Philadelphia, they have them all over in a lot of different cities, particularly a haunted city like New Orleans.
02:35 MW: Yeah, but New Orleans! Woo.
02:37 AG: Right, where it’s haunted, right? So we went in there and you went to this old hotel where there was murders, and there was like, “Close your eyes.” Now, I went with my buddy, Tooch. Now you can imagine, two idiots, we’re in this ballroom and they’re like, “Close your eyes and see if you feel like a presence.”
02:58 MW: Well, you always feel something.
03:00 AG: Right! Like you go, “I don’t know… “
03:00 MW: Even if you don’t. It’s like the Ouija board.
03:01 AG: Right. “Am I feeling it? Is there a ghost there?”
03:03 MW: “Am I supposed to feel it?”
03:04 AG: Right, there’s a ghost. And so of course, we… By the end of it, I’m, “Tooch, where have you gone, Tooch? I’m honking for you.” And so that’s the beauty of Halloween, and that’s why I love Tropicana because no matter what time of the year it is, there’s always a theme. Isn’t it a part of… If you wanna have fun and entertainment, just like give me a theme where I can just…
03:28 MW: Yeah, you build on it.
03:28 AG: Kinda be whisked away into a theme.
03:31 MW: And what’s better than putting on a costume?
03:33 AG: Yes, yes. And here at the Tropicana, we got plenty of places for you to put on a costume. What’s your favorite costume? Well, hold that thought.
03:43 AG: We’re gonna get to that in just a second, but I wanna do a complete Halloween extravaganza. We’re gonna start off in the room and I need to play a little TropicanaCasino.com.
03:57 MW: Okay.
03:58 AG: Alright? Because I’ve… It’s funny, if you’re in Jersey, you could actually play the games online. So if you have your tablet. So I have my tablet here and I go to TropicanaCasino.com, and so I’m gonna sign up with the promo code ‘Boo’. B-O-O, boo! And not a booing of the Eagles.
04:18 MW: No, a spooky boo.
04:19 AG: Right, spooky boo, correct.
04:20 MW: Ghost boo.
04:21 AG: And receive $10. [chuckle] “Ghost boo.” And you’ll receive $10 in bonus money that you can use to play Blackjack, the slots, and any of the games online at TropicanaCasino.com. And it’s so much fun. We’ve done it at Tangos where we’ll sit out, have a drink, hang out.
04:40 MW: Play.
04:41 AG: Play a little Blackjack online, let me see how I do. And again, you must be 21, you must be in New Jersey. When you register, promo is valid for new patrons only. So if you haven’t done it before, you can use the promo code Boo, B-O-O, and it’s a blast. All the promotion and bonus rules apply.

But it’s so much fun just to hang out. So I’m gonna play a little Blackjack. And maybe… ‘Cause I’m a multitasker. You know these days, our minds are so… We need stimulus, constant stimulus or stimuli, as now… ‘Cause it’s plural, now you get to multitask everything. So since you need that, would you mind… Because I know you get mad if I’m on the phone and having a conversation at the same time.
05:33 MW: No, you play. Go, you go play.
05:35 AG: Can I play and we pick out a scary movie?
05:37 MW: Yeah.
05:38 AG: ‘Cause I wanna play a little online Blackjack at TropicanaCasino.com and we’ll pick out a scary movie. So if I said to you, your top five scary movies.
05:52 MW: Well, the one that always gets me that I don’t see enough is Poltergeist.
05:56 AG: Poltergeist is a great one.
05:57 MW: It scares me all the time. I gotta sit down and watch it.
06:00 AG: Into the light.
06:01 MW: Yeah. Carol Ann.
06:03 AG: “Carol Ann, come into the light.”
06:05 MW: Start to finish, that’s a scary one.
06:07 AG: It is, that’s a frightening one because you do wonder about the other side.
06:13 MW: Yeah.
06:13 AG: And if there is a portal where Carol Ann gets lost into the light. [chuckle] The creepy old lady.
06:22 MW: Yeah, the little lady?
06:22 AG: The medium.
06:23 MW: Yeah, I might have to watch that one.
06:24 AG: Yeah, the little lady comes in, “Carol Ann, come into the light.”
06:28 MW: Carol Ann.
06:29 AG: “Carol Ann, come into the light.” It’s always the light. “No, don’t go into the light, Carol Ann!”
06:37 MW: Yeah, it’s always the light.
06:38 AG: Don’t go into the light. It freaks you out, right?
06:41 MW: Yeah.
06:42 AG: It messes you up a little bit, you do that. By the way, while we’re looking at this, you got Poltergeist and I’m on TropicanaCasino.com and there’s a lot of great rewards going on, too.

10:40 MW: I touched it. I didn’t pick it up. I’m trying to mentally weigh it.
10:46 AG: So here’s the deal. Saturday, we’re gonna draw the winner of “Guess the Pumpkin.” And so the pumpkin is there, you can’t miss it in the Quarter and it’s all done up. You’ve got spider webs around it.

11:02 AG: Correct. And you have the skulls, you like the skull?
11:09 MW: Spooky skull.
11:11 AG: So the drawing is gonna take place Saturday night, October 29th, 8:45 PM, and you’re in. And Tropicana Advantage members, they’re are the ones that guess the weight, so sign up. I’m telling you, if you become a Trop Advantage member, you get all kinds of goodies, but even moreso, you get a chance here. The closest guess without going over is gonna be the winner and you gotta be present to win. So come on down to the Trop, winners have 15 minutes to claim prizes or a new winner will be selected. So you gotta be there on-site, 8:45, make sure, you got five minutes, you hang out, and it’s a blast. If you guess the pumpkin, it’s your chance to win $1,000 free slot play guaranteed. Now… We’ve won… What’s the most we won on slots?
12:06 MW: We’ve…
12:07 AG: We spun the wheel, right?
12:08 MW: Yeah, we won a pretty penny.
12:09 AG: Like $200, right?

12:20 AG: Right, right. You know what’s funny? Because you’re right. You become the center of attraction.
12:25 MW: Oh, yeah. They’re waiting, your machine’s hot. They want you off, they wanna get in.
12:29 AG: Yeah, they’re only… But when you say it… And then you’re always glued to it. And I always feel… I don’t know. I feel like guilty, like if somebody gets to spin, I’m staring at it. But you want him to win, right?
12:42 MW: I know, yeah.
12:42 AG: So you wanna on there breathing down their neck, but you’re kinda rooting for him, and it’s like, “When’s it gonna stop? Give me 1,000! Give me a 1,000!” So you get 1,000 free spin, so you gotta become a Trop Advantage member, man. You gotta go guess the pumpkin weight, and maybe you can win $1,000 free slot play. I don’t know, I think that’s a pretty good deal.
