Thanks for the update, Wulfgar! If I end up going in the next month or so I'll see if I can add some info.

I wrote a Trip Report about this but I said I would update here:

May 2017:

Harrah's -- $15 minimum in the mornings during the week, then up to $25 around noonish and on the weekends. Never saw the table closed, even at off times when empty. Awesome dealers. Chart of delivery styles and "how to play" pamphlet are both on the table. Charges quarters on commission.

Venetian -- $25 minimum, not sure when/if it goes higher. Not always open -- saw it closed Saturday morning. Mildly unfriendly dealers. No quarters on commission.

Palazzo -- Closed when I went by, but they do have a table. No idea on minimums.

Lucky Dragon -- $15 minimum on a Friday afternoon. No idea when/if it goes higher. Dealer was okay. Can't remember if they charged quarters.

Aria -- My friend said he played here briefly on a Saturday, and the minimum was $50.

The LINQ -- Didn't see a table anywhere. This casino looks like they're trying to cater to a younger crowd, so I'm not surprised.

Haven't been to Vegas lately, but in addition to the above, the list then included the Rio (usually $25 min), Gold Coast (next to Rio, lower than 25 but not sure what), Mirage (someone might have reported this table removed recently?) And Bellagio ($25 min the one table we played, not sure if they have others).

Re: your list. Harrah's has told me a couple times the Asian pit never closes. They "always" staff 1 PGP, one minibacc, and PGT, more of the 1st two open and close during the day. That's been true at least the last dozen times I stayed there, but obviously I don't do their scheduling.

Edit: checked the websites of the 4 properties I added. Bellagio is the only one that lists PGT as available. Hard to believe the Rio removed it, but certainly possible. The other two, yeah, I believe they don't offer it.

Just got off the phone with the Rio pit. They have Tiles still, one table, almost always $25 min, usually staffed.
