Caesars didn't pick the guy up as a player until Steve Wynn personally met with the guy and banned him.
Steve realized that he was out of control.

What does that tell you about Caesar's Palace?

I'm sure there's more on the horizon for Caesar's Palace. The rumors are flying over there. Between the dealer's talking and the hosts from the other casinos, they are in for a rough ride this year.

Before the union moved in, none of the dealers had the nerve to discuss anything. But not anymore.

Harrah's Vegas casino revenue almost hit $2 billion in 2007. It seems as if Watanabe accounted for several percentage points from that year.

2009 : $1,476
2008 : $1,719
2007 : $1,987
2006 : $1,727
2005 : $1,055
2004 : $572


The purchase of Ceasars was on June 2005 and Imperial Palace was later that year.

In Prior year's they included all of Nevada into one group (Reno + Laughlin + Vegas)
2005 : $1,544
2004 : $1,041
2003 : $905

I have to be completely honest: If I ever get that rich, blowing $100 mil in Vegas would be one of my top 5 things to do.



I'm there with you Ahiromu! But I'd better be worth $500 million or else my wife would kill me.

Yeah, plus you'd probably also have to donate another $100mil to charities or else you'd be attacked as a heartless and selfish asshole.

There is a semi-private casino room called the Palace Court Tables that you can't just walk into. It's on the property map.



My wife and I stayed at Caesars in July 2007 and we saw two young gentlemen in the Palace Court Tables playing blackjack. They had a large board set up for each of them with a stack of black chips in each as long as your arm. We walked by about 40 minutes later and both gentlemen were down to a quarter of what they started with.

That's the only time I've ever seen anyone play in that section of Caesars although my wife and I only go about once a year.

Why can't you just walk into it? I thought they legally have to make all gaming areas open to the public? Or would they simply make you feel so unwelcome that only the most shameless person would wander in?

You could just walk in, but there are no dealers in there. I think you'd have to arrange with the casino to play in there before hand.

They changed the law to allow private gaming a few years ago to be more competitive with Asia. The Gaming Commission must have fiber linked view of the areas 24 hours a day.

Public Gaming was a mainstay for over 70 years.
