I don't remember them catering to a Latin crowd. In any event it was a small local casino ,as I recall, not a resort.. Much smaller than the old Teribles.

Yea not mentioned here but most locals of the time remember it as a place that catered to Hispanics.

Or the AP's who remember it in fond memories.

I miss Key Largo... good gamble over there. I was sad when they shut the doors.

Only went in there several times, do didn't play much there. Would walk by when we stayed at TUSCANY and walked to the Strip. Good cheeseburger in their diner if I recall correctly.

Seems to be a hard draw until someone gives customers a reason to go up that way. If your too tight for the locals, you have no shot in that area with the tourists. Unless your going for the Strat crowd.


I was wondering how it was doing.
I guess not well.

with the closing of the Rivera that end of the Strip seems like it's on it's last legs.
Much like the Taj Mahal end of the Boardwalk in Atlantic City.

How does the Stratosphere stay in business?

In a couple of years, the Resorts World will open, which should pump up traffic on the north end of the Strip. It looks like Lucky Dragon is trying to hold on until then, so perhaps SLS should also rebrand for a Chinese/Asian target market? "Little Malaysia" anyone?

I'm surprised they didn't try that the first time. Clean and modern with mildly Asian influenced decor is a theme for at least some of their hotels.

SLS spent $415M renovating.
Wonder how much they lost since opening in 2014, including this sale?

According to the article, the name change is just a rumor at this point but wouldn't doubt it happening. As for the players club, they immediately run your name to see if you are databased as an AP.
