teddys recently did a report of the local SD casinos, maybe take a look at that and it might help some questions you have.
But I just don't understand why anyone would make a special trip to the San Diego casinos when Vegas has so much more to offer.
I hope to hit San Diego at some point in the not terribly distant future. Even when I win, I am beginning to loathe the northeast casinos...was offered a very nice & free room @ Mohegan & turned it down...I'm pretty much afraid to eat there or touch anything...lol?
Barona backed me off their single deck game for spreading to two times the table minimum. The game had almost no house edge but jeez, they wouldn't even let me bet the minimum. This was a few years ago and I know it probably won't help you. The reason I posted at all was because of your Mohegan Sun comments.
Now kitties, you can't leave us hanging. I have a love/hate relationship with this casino as well as a lot of experience there. Tell us about your times at MS and don't leave anything out. There are a few threads on the Connecticut casinos if you'd rather post there. Either way, I'd love to hear your comments.
The Jan. 10th Undercover Boss episode is going to feature Mohegan Sun. The show has been there before, for Johnny Rocket's, but this one is about the casino itself.
As for the casino, itself...they've got a pretty fair blackjack game with "lucky dealers" (aka terrible variance not helped by awful deck pen). Their rules are pretty effective against counting...which they know & i believe is the reason you can spread liberally with little fanfare. So at mohegan, I play with a solid BS & resist the urge to count. I also don't like how the crowds can get very overwhelming at times...that & I experienced several misdeals over the summer that weren't handled to my liking (then again...are they ever?) I want to attempt counting the DD game @ Barona. I get free Disneyland & have family in SD & LA...plenty of reason to go out. I went in the Spring, 2012 & made a few hundred bucks very quickly without even counting. Unfortunately, I wasn't really in a position to risk much...& my streak was ended because I'm dumb & didn't quite "get" the hand signals (some dealers were more helpful than others).
Single decks been gone for a while now, but the DD they have is very beatable. The food there is really good too so you and your GF shouldn't have to worry eating there.
I'd kind of like to go check it out. Assuming I can somehow get reservations at the hotel, does anyone know what level of play it will take for a new player to get the room comped?
So only Feb 21 and a couple of January Saturdays are sold out for the next 3 months, according to this. The rest between 119 and 179 for the most part. I'm not a club member, just asked the website, so anyone should get offered this, I would think.
