I love the design, look, and feel of the Revel, I think it's awsome, way better then any casino I have been to. Management seems to be a problem.

As far as restaurants being open and limited smoking areas go, its no different then any other casino in AC.

The fact they don't have gambling at the bars seems strange and silly to me. They must figure they can make more from expensive drinks then they can from people playing and receiveing comped drinks.

Seems to me they're trying to be all things to all people, so they end up pleasing nobody. They have gambling; why not put elegant and fun games in the bar as well? Opportunity lost.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I have been in just about every casino in Nevada and AC and many inbetween, this is the only one I have been impresses with, as far as design, I love the modern look and the low lighting. I normaly cant stand red carpet but they pulled it off. Even the entrance to the bathrom is impressive. Rooms are nice, I sure hope they get it together. I cant stand the buttons on the video poker they are big and awkward to push, it seems like it takes a lot more effort to push them.

The best place to play on east coast is Mohegan sun. They constantly improved their games and this is what AC should learn. This is what I will do with Revel. It's too hard to beat craps. It's either tables or dice, but something has to be changed, I would definitely make $5 tables, craps is about action, BJ pit looks busy some players had descent wins, but baccarat looks unimpressive. Sometimes you follow a"lucky" player, with no players around you don't feel comfortable jumping in. No Christmas decorations, closed restaurants. Secret of a success is to make place alive even with few patrons on a floor. The standards are set pretty high, Revel has to do better.




I was at Mohegan Sun for the first time in 15 years this weekend (there is a thread about it) - and the blackjack penetration (in the high limit area) was only about 50-55%. They were cutting off almost half the shoe. To me, that spells trouble.

The casino entrance to Revel is absurd...that is what has hurt them the most. Just a colossal design flaw, way too inconvenient to attract any foot traffic. I visit AC every other week, and dread walking on the Boardwalk to Revel. That wind tunnel between Showboat and Revel is brutal in the summer...forget about it the other 9 months of the year. Other than that...it's pretty nice. But I'm not sure they can correct the fatal flaw...the entrance should have been on the Showboat side...then it could have worked.

I still post on the board you talk about and agree a few control it and have posts removed they don't agree with. That board is more for tourists visiting AC and a few locals who have an agenda to promote the town. And yes, they have a shill for Revel as a leader of the board. Here the few of us who visit AC on a regular basis look for the best value for our dollar and for the most part understand the future of AC from an objective point of view. Unless there is consolidation down to 5-6 casinos, the future is not good.

But on the positive side, most of us see Revel for what it is and laugh about the future they have created for themselves because their actions toward players.

And yes, UKStages is still a tool and shill for Kevin, still believing Revel will make it as a non smoking casino. Look for him on at Caesars chasing down a security guard because someone lit a cigarette in a non smoking area.



So we are talking TA or is there another forum?

I have been to AC 4 times in the last year and I only went into Revel 1 time. Small time players like myself feel like that place is too upscale and we can't afford it. At least from a few folks I have talked to feel that way. That may not be what the place is actually like but perception is reality.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed. I AM NOT PART OF GWAE RADIO SHOW

Yes TA. I actually am shocked to see what Axel is saying considering how they treated players like him this summer. But I guess he is talking about design and nothing more.

The penetration is about 61%, but that should not matter if you are not a card counter. All Blackjack at Mohegan starting at $5 min is 6 deck with late surrender and S17. AC doesn't come close.

I agree with what you for the most part, however , when I read the Vegas board on that site it's "no holds barred" & makes me want to visit Vegas.

When I read the AC board, on the same site, it only motivates one to sing show tunes, take a nap & spend <$5 dining at Johnny Rockets.

Perhaps a disservice to the destination TA attempts to promote on that board?

....LOL
