Greetings!

Please follow the link below to read my review of Live! Casino Pittsburgh, if you would like:

https://wizardofvegas.com/hotels/live-casino-pittsburgh/

Two Notes:

1.) This is currently listed in the Vegas section, which will be fixed at a later time. It will not change the link.

2.) For some reason, there is a Resort Fee listed and I have no access to the backend for, "Hotels," so I can't fix that. It will be fixed in the near future. There is no hotel at this property, so nothing to have a Resort Fee on.

my review of Live! Casino Pittsburg



Is there a posted list of the casinos that you've reviewed and the scores assigned to each?

I see 2 other reviews listed on your Blog page...are there more of your reviews listed elsewhere?

if it's like Live Philly, you cant use free slot play on the 9/7 db machines. (i tried)
no idea if you can use freeplay on vp in general since i never tried to load freeplay onto the other vp machines.

ahh.. no 'Banking' machines allowed in PA.
that explains why Ocean Magic bubbles disappeared.. lol

the Ult X machines got picked through when i was there early weekday morning. i didnt see any of the usual AP playable machines that's at my local casino.
but i'm guessing there are some playable because it shouldnt be worth anyone's time to come in just to check 6 Ult X with .25 max denom.
Craps is paradise (Pair of dice). Lets hear it for the SpeedCount Mathletes :)

When your wife is shopping at the craft store for an absurd amount of time, you have to take a walk to somewhere.
May the cards fall in your favor.

I don’t know about there, but I was able to use Free Play on VP (in general) at Maryland Live! This casino was giving $25 Free Play upon signing up on my visit, but I’m going to hold out and hope for a juicier promotion…and then make sure they’re all treated individually when it comes to the card.

You’d be surprised on UX, also, the person could live five minutes away, for all we know. Six UX machines checked twice daily with no competition could very easily have $50+/day in value. Could be someone who drives past on the way to/from work and is barely going out of his way to check them.

There were some must-hits and open ended progressives, of course. Although, finding a really good MH is rare. With no competition, if that’s indeed the case, one could maybe hold out for really solid numbers.

Might also be something else going on, based on good VP and, “How they treat their players,” but I wouldn’t know.

no idea.
thats what Mis said in his article.

that would explain the lack of banking slots when i visited Live Philly.
and as i said, explains the ocean magic variant where bubbles on the screen disappear

If I need to play high limit Blackjack or Baccarat, I'd probably go to this place. The $5K or $10K maximums are higher than I've ever seen in my area.
I don't see the craps odds listed, be it 2X, or 3X, 4X, 5X, or 5X, or 10X, or 20X. I find the video meters that tell you the table limits tend to wash out after a few years and become unreadable. I'd prefer they go back to color-coded metal slates with table limits.
