I heard they took a hit recently, around $300k.

If that has ANYTHING to do with why they changed their odds limits, they are bigger knuckleheads than I thought. $300k is not a very big hit at all for a casino of that size.

I think this is just another bean counter move that may start a trend of less friendly gambling conditions even though most people don't max their odds out, so the actual impact may not be all that much.

A 300k hit is nothing for Wynn. That can't be the reason why they changed this.

I agree that this is likely a bean counter move.

Wynn is a nice place to walk through and take a couple pictures, but I wouldn't waste my time gambling there.

Just another indication most gamblers of all size bankrolls just don't care about playing conditions along as they are made to feel good by the casino.

Is this a new trend or an old trend that is now hip, like PBR being a cool beer???? I vaguely remember that decades ago 2x was the normal.

Based on the chatter in the Wynn at the tables and the Casino Hosts it has caused quite a stir. The rate has changed 3 times in three days for pay allowed odds. not pure 2x. Like 30 pass allows 100 odds on a 6 or 8, 25 pass on a 5 or 9 and you can have 60 odds.

The dealers weren't happy and lots of players grumbling and walking away. The hosts weren't informed a head of time either. There is a single 3/4/5 table with 100 limit in the high room but the yelling for wins in there has Baccarat players irritated and I would imagine they are not a good group to alienate. The hosts are getting an earful. While I was talking with mine 2 other players came in to have the same discussion.

The word is the buzz is on the strip and many assume everyone will follow Steve Wynn. The play at the table was more weighted to the Place Bets that normal in my opinion.

Thanks for chiming in. I can't believe this is happening and hope that they're embarrassed into changing it back soon.

I don't want this to spread like 6:5.

Poker players in town and staying around this area. It could be temporary.

This seems like a drastic change for the purpose of squeezing some WSOP players.

You're right. Less likely things happen every single day though.
