Anybody play here lately? They have the table in their high limit room but I have never seen it open. I would be curious what minimum they would open it for and what type of advance notice they would need. I'm planning a trip for a couple weeks out and getting prepped for 4 days of non-stop tiles.

I know you are probably staying at TI so this may not help but at Mandalay Bay they have a tiles game in the Asian pit and usually just an hour or so notice will do. They just need time to yank a dealer and open the game.

Perhaps it is the same at TI? I would give them notcie in the afternoon that you are planning to play that evening. I would imagine they would require a minimum $25 to $50 bet.

Just some thoughts.

I'm actually staying next door at Mirage but would like to know a game is available right next door if the table at Mirage is running cold. I also was assuming that by being off the main floor I would have a lot less people coming up and asking questions about the game and better drink service.

Last time I played at Mandalay tiles were in the "pre-high limit area". I haven't been there since the Lotus room opened. How is the new room and atmosphere?

Harrah's has it every night. Played there with the Wiz and other WoV members after G2E last year. I believe it was a $20 minimum.

The game at Mandalay Bay always seems to be open whenever I'm there...

I left in 2012 and When they opened the Lotus Room or Asian pit they had decided to close PGP Tiles until they either have a request to open or they knew one of their players was coming into town for a tournament or something.

After they started this process I believe I saw the table open about 5 times total, that's it.

Things may have changed since I left obviously

Maybe I'm confusing PGP with PG Tiles. I always walk by the lotus room but I never play in there so I might be confused as to what people are playing :)

I know that there are always PG Tiles games going at MGM Grand...

It's pretty hard to confuse PGP with PGT. You can hear the tiles clinking from halfway across the casino.

Most casinos that have the game are open 24 hours. The following properties close their game sometimes as far as I know:

Harrahs during the week will close their game in the morning
Treasure Island - I haven't seen the game open since it moved into high limit.
Mandalay Bay - According to posters on this thread it is closed a lot
Paris - Closed in the morning
Caesars Palace - Occasionally closed in the morning

Most other properties seem to keep the game open 24 hours a day.

Harrah's in April had PGT staffed 24/7 the entire week I stayed there. Don't know if that's a change or because it was around Easter and they expected more people, but I played in that pit 7 straight days at all hours and it was open.

Rio has PGT as well, min $25/hand. I don't know whether it's staffed 24/7.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.
