I recently played here for a bit--it was the Sunday night of the big fight weekend (Mayweather/Canelo) and it was also Mexican Independence Day/Weekend (or something similar; I never got the official name of it but people were in town for it). A couple of things struck me about the craps conditions.

First, they used to have two "normal" tables or more that were in the main pit area. Those were standard sized rails for drinks, etc. They also had a party pit with inexperienced ladies dealing the action. That table had a crappy drink rail that was not tall enough for a standard beer bottle but had holders around it. I found it to be annoying.

On this trip, one of that type of tables (minus the party pit dealers; it was on the main floor) was the only one in play at 8 p.m. on a Sunday. The table was full and people were waiting to play. At one point, there were enough people waiting to play to fill another table. There was some chatter among the dealers and other folks about opening another table. It never happened. Eventually, the players who were frozen out of the game headed across the way to the other area casinos.

It was not a good craps experience at all...and that is not even talking about the guy who said "let's see what the old man can do" who was loudly rooting for the 7 to roll...

That is one advantage of having other casinos nearby.

In a place where manage vacillates as to where their emphasis will be the overall casino experience suffers.

By the time management comes back with a decision as to what they will be like, personnel have changed, equipment has changed and demand has changed.

I don't blame them for buying a low table to help out the party pit "dealer-tainers" but an annoying beverage rack is annoying no matter who plays.

Sounds like decisions are being made by people who don't know what type of play the casino wants to have.

party pit "dealer-tainers"



Are there house-favoring rule changes at such tables in Craps as well? ["tit tax" so to speak?]

I don't think so. From what I heard it was only a brief change in the "atmosphere" rather than an actual change in the rules such as dice winding up in cleavage are automatic Seven-outs or something.
