Sometimes they do stuff like that to close tables when they are short on dealers, but they usually inform the players there are similar table limits nearby.

Half of those who griped about the minimum bet will want to continue to get free drinks and fifteen minutes later will be playing at the new level. The casino wants the general level to be higher and does not want lower level action to continue. Eventually they prevail.

The casino wanted to get the riff raff out of there.

$100 players, that's nothing, you don't need to take care of them, you need to take care of real gamblers.

It is likely a decision from way up on the corporate ladder with the idea that if they raised the limits it would bring a higher level clientele in if they knew they wouldn't have to be playing with low limit players on the table. Obviously they don't give the floor staff the authority to change it as needed to reflect the actual play in the pit. It is a form of micro-managing from higher up that doesn't always result in the best service for the guests. Maybe in the past they had complaints from high limit players that the reason they don't play there is because they don't want to play with low limit players and this was the change made to accomodate them, but there has not been a reassesment of that procedure change to see if it has been working your observation it has obviously been not working).


The qualy of the clientele does not change significantly at that level.
Perhaps if they were going to $500 or $1,000 this would be a valid theory.
But even then you would still be catering to the top echelon of gamblers.
I am always surprised when a casino won't accommodate a player with that obvious spending potential.
To me, the move just reeks of the blind greed I have come to expect from Caesars.

I can see it coming down as a directive from above: Do this to make the high-rollers happy.

Assume that's what's going on.

Did they tell the high-rollers they were going to do that? If so, why were the other two $200 tables empty?

They informed us mid-shoe that the next shoe would harken the change of the table minimum and all players would then have to play the new minimum. As for why the other two $200 tables were empty, I have no idea. They were not reserved. There was one woman playing on a reserved table at $10,000 per hand and she was the only other BJ player in the high limit room (some people were playing roulette). So, other than wanting to claim that all their tables in the high limit room were $200 minimum, I have no idea why they would do this. Later that evening I passed by the high limit room again and, lo and behold, nary a player except the one lady still playing $10,000 per hand. I guess three empty $200 tables is better than one full $100 table.

Maybe the 10k Player told them to flick the fleas or she would leave....
The high limit BJ at Mohegan Sun, CT is $500 and it is almost always empty.
I am sure they could get players at $100 but they choose to staff the empty table instead.
I think a lot of casinos have not yet adjusted to the new reality...
We do not need them as much anymore.
We have hundreds of options now.

Nah, I have seen the $10k player in there on previous trips and she was basically oblivious to everyone and besides, she was up on the raised level within the Caesar's AC high limit room behind a railing with plenty of privacy

AC casinos raise the minimums that drive the players away and then they wonder why they are losing revenue every month......Idiots!

The illusion of big time players in AC is too appealing to them to care about the $100 players.
