Anybody here go to Charles Town recently? I am curious what the conditions in general are like (table min, variety)

Specifically what are the craps mins like and the odds.

Thanks,
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Weekdays, 1 table 345 odds, $10 min. Haven't been there on 6 months or so. I don't see it changing. 2nd table on weekdays didn't open until noon or 1.

Weekend will generally have 1 $10 table and 3 $25 tables. Some tables have 345x and others have 2.5x (you can put $25 odds on $10 flat for 6/8)

Originally they only had 2.5x and added 345x after Maryland Live! opened. For some reason they have not switched all tables...

Haven't been there in a year, but I recall the VP being really, really, really bad. Very limited amount and best pay table was around 97% if I remember, most 94% to 96%.

check back after the MGM National Harbor casino opens in about 6 wks - they are now accepting hotel reservations for Dec 10th I believe.

The impact on Charles Town should be dramatic

That's what I had believed Maryland Live! and Horseshoe Baltimore would do, but doesn't seem to have changed anything there strangely.

Huge difference. Both require you to deal with the BW Parkway, the drive from the beltway can take an hour during bad times (of which there are many). This casino will be a 20m drive for some of the wealthiest parts of Nova; a quick hop on 495 for everyone up through Bethesda. I believe this casino will shatter records.

Huge difference.



I agree, Northern VA has to be the reason for CT's existence, practically, or I would be shocked.

Having said that, greed can take hold of a casino and the grasp can last a long time, we all know that. We shall see.

Just an update. I did go on Monday. Was there from 9 AM to around 3 PM. All BJ was 3:2 with good rules. The min was $15 at all BJ tables. Craps was indeed 3-4-5 with 10 min. No side bets. I didn't even see any VP machines.

I liked the style of the casino. However as a low roller 15 is bit outside my comfort zone.
