Musings about the casino/brothel (One-eyed Jacks):
Where in the area under discussion is it legal to have a casino?  
I think in the U.S. you have to go south to Nevada to blow 
your wad.  In Canada only the government can run houses
of gambling (read: lotteries), and there are no casinos like
the one in TP.  

However, there are Indian reservations in some U.S. states 
where casinos are legal (e.g., Oklahoma, New York).  
The one in NY (recently in the news) straddles the US/Canada
border.  Could the casino in question be on an border-
spanning Indian reservation?  Plot implications? 

As has been pointed out, in the one-armed man's speech in 
the dream "chance house" may be code for casino, 
"convenience store" may be where one purchases "ladies of 
convenience" and it is "between two worlds" (on the
border). 

Isn't firewalking a tradition in some North American Indian
cultures?
