So has anybody visited yet since its official opening? I dropped by around Thanksgiving and it was decidedly ho-hum and the parking garage reminded me of Fremont. Not even sure why they kept the second floor semi-private rooms open when they were doing the electricals there, making the lights flicker in and out.

I dropped In this week. Very small, looked nice, but like other recent openings (DTG, SLS) I don't see it doing well. Don't think it'll take the asian gaming play away (long term) from Gold Coast and palace station that it probably needs to, doesn't have the pizzazz of the strip casinos.

Much smaller than I expected. I like the colors and whatnot though. Seemed bright. I knew it catered to Asians, I didn't put 2 & 2 together to realize it would be mostly Asians in there. Big mistake, some would say. Not many games for us roundeyes.

I walked there from the Venetian tonight. Place is dead for 9PM on a Saturday night. Maybe a dozen machine plays available with only a few being worth your time. But IMO those machines will be played so little that this will mostly be a waste of time unless there are other things going on there.

Plenty of baccarat tables for stuffed monkeys to work their magic

It needs a forum :)
I went there yesterday. It's in it's soft opening right now. Grand opening December 3rd.
Quick review: it's amazingly beautiful. All Asian & lucky red/gold themed throughout. Small elegant space, fantastic restaurants.
Mostly baccarat. $10 gets you a face-up game played on a midi table. $50 gets you a Macau-style game in the high limit room where you can bend the cards. $100 gets you a Macau-style game in the cavernous VIP room on the second floor, which is more private.
Blackjack pays 3-2, no surrender, no RSA, yes DS. I think that makes it 0.66% house advantage. No craps. Casino Hold 'em, Asia poker, 3 card poker. I didn't see Pai Gow or Pai Gow Poker or Sic Bo, but I assume they were there somewhere since it's Asian themed. Slots are the giant screen type. Less of the floor is slots than is typical in Vegas. The VP is a great deal. Jacks or Better pays 9/5 for 25 cents throughout the casino, including at the bars! Staff is mostly Asian and all are very friendly.

We missed visiting the new Lucky Dragon Casino on our recent Apr 2017 trip. Shucks! Has anybody been there since the Dec 2016 opening? Some comments or pics to share?

With my Asian heritage, I thought I might blend in well with the crowd, and try to enjoy the 3:2 DD BJ described by the OP. I wanted to go on what they advertise as "Lucky Wednesday" for the best combination of joss!
