Borgata! LOL. Well more specifically baccarat at the Borg! Most paranoid casino one would ever step into. That is why I have never been back for a year or two. Reminds me of those rinky dink Gala joints in the UK.



Paranoid or job security? Borg is not the same anymore like the good old days. A dealer told me the reason. He said that "krɪs tə fər Phʊrd" (ex-VP of table games) was "laid off" because some Aps won $millions. Ever since there after, many winners have been put on the "the NO-GOOD list", & their comp dollars and other perks are taken away. It's not paranoid. It's job security. Now the in-charge manager makes sure that he will not be scapegoated like "krɪs tə fər Phʊrd". The manager rather chases away AP-wannabies than "getting laid off".
I'm OK with Corps which pick and choose clienteles. Both insurance companies and casinos have the right to pick and choose customers. They may keep profitable ones and kicked out the rest. But, I'm not OK with a casino supervisor who says counting cards... is like stealing food from a buffet (a foodlifting offense), or video-taping a movie in a cinema (a piracy offense).

You can definitely see it in the dealers and the supervisors on the gaming floor. I always wonder what was up with all that nervousness and acting very defensive and fearful. Even the slightest form of outlier wagering behavior will get them buck wild crazy to the point where the upstairs will send some suit accompanied by two security guards to stop your game. LOL.

I mean if the Borg can't handle the action might as well close shop and open a Wal-Mart!

Well that goes for most of AC nowadays. Coupled with the crappy customer service one should not be surprised with all those casinos closings this year. Just sucks that Showboat went to the crapper as that was the only AC casino resembled or even at times surpassed with what I experienced here in Vegas.
