I visited Casino Fandango about a year ago. It was a weekday, and the casino had a few patrons. They had $3 minimum tables. I played at a full 3CP table. I can't report on BJ conditions. Overall, based on my limited observations, it had a fun, friendly vibe. The craps table had a reduced crew -- can't remember if it was 1 or 2 dealers.

I didn't stay or eat there, so I can't comment about that.

I was also there in 2010 back when they had a mechanical parrot that "flew" around the casino, hanging from a track in the ceiling. Occasionally, the parrot would screech and drop cash. There was no such parrot the last time I was there, but there were rumors of his return in the future.

Would people chase the parrot around?

No. the one time I saw it, it moved pretty fast. It did one circuit above the casino floor, and then disappeared through a slot in the wall. I only saw it drop a few $1 bills. Nothing worth knocking over little old ladies to get. I found it to be an odd spectacle, though.

I just checked their website, and there is no mention of the parrot. Perhaps the rumors I heard were just that -- rumors.

Sorry I couldn't provide you with more than just the "parrot report." I noticed PokerAddict recently did some Northern Nevada casino reviews. Perhaps he also has some info on the Carson City casinos?

I haven't been there in years but I know they used to. An independent one too. However, they probably got bought out by William Hill. If anyone can confirm or deny, please do.

It is a William Hill 'McBook' or 'Taco Book' or 'Book in the Box' site.
