Hi. Has anyone ever been to the Hard Rock casino out in Fllorida? I was wondering Wat the joint was like:

-Is craps offered and what are their table limits?

-Do they offer good promo's for thier higher end players? I get a few ofers from the Vegas NV (cruises and such) and I don't know about the Florida Hard Rock.)

-Lastly, how is it like inside? I mean, is it dirty, maintained, or somewhere in the middle. Where would it fall, say, between the Vegas MGM and someplace dirty like the D?

That danged Fleastiff character first reviewed the Hard Rock casino after his drunken visit. I doubt much has changed in the interim.

Craps in Florida is technically unlawful in either a privately owned or a tribal casino. This restriction is under some sort of review in the legislature committee.

Craps as a slot machine is indeed available. One central craps station with six or eight terminals surrounding it.

(The gambling ship out of Port Canaveral has two real craps tables usually with fairly low limits).

The rooms and the parking are expensive. The shops are expensive. The walking distances are great. There is a difference between Valet Parking DropOff and Valet Parking Pickup. Signage about that is not great. Hotel parking is dark and dingy; Casino parking is much better. Again, signage ain't so hot on that issue.

Food courts and the like are Comp oriented because the non-comp prices are absurd.

Necklines tend to be low, hemlines tend to be high. Jewelry abounds. Noise levels are astronomical.

I just took a longer look at their website and the first thought I had was "what kind of idiotic casino doesn't have craps?" They might have a hard time getting me to come in.

What they have is Bubble Craps or something similar. Its the law.

I prefer the gambling ship or else Biloxi for craps but it is a state law that no wager can be determined solely by dice. Politicians wagging the tongues and dragging their feet on this issue.

They want craps badly. They're negotiating with the state to allow it and they're 90%+ there on getting it.

The HR Hollywood (Ft Lauderdale) is very comparable to Bellagio or other high -end strip places. I like it there a lot. Very clean, nice rioms, apa, golf course, resort.

I dislike HR Tampa just as much, but I haven't been there in I think, 7 years, so maybe it's improved, but I doubt it. It's an airplane hangar of a casino with rude dealers. Enormous, echoing, lousy parking. They need some competition over there to make them improve.

Both have most carnival games $10 lowest min, $15 prime time. PaigowPker is $20, with special blue chips. Bj is $15 when slow, up from there.

Food at both is expensive, better at Hollywood.

HR Coconut Creek is smaller, minimums are lower, a lot of people like them better than the bigger ones.

Comps are ok, not great. Free rooms are easy, free play not very generous but easy to claim.

Stingiest is valet parking at HRH. $40 for
/day, and they contract it out, so it doesn't get comped or waived for any but the most VIP. Including hotel guests. Self-park also costs. That was an unpleasant surprise to me the first time I stayed there.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I live nearby
only a few things that sets it apart from other casinos
Its big. Real big. 6th largest in the world. To me, that means long walks.
They cater to Asian gamblers so they have real good genuine Asian food and Asian games such as Pai Gow tiles
The poker room does a ton of business. Its huge and packed. 20 to 30 full tables.
Its a hard rock so the décor is interesting
