I have played at Wynn a number of times and the dealers are very good. I have found the floor people at Wynn to be very talkative and pleasant. It seems that they always only have a couple tables and have time to provide plenty of attention. Unless very busy they seem to have a tiles table open at Wynn or Encore, but not both.

I appreciate the info on Wynn. I've always thought that it was a beautiful and classy casino. The only problem is that it tends to be just far enough from the center of the strip action for me not to head over there. I can't break away from the group long enough to head up there. I haven't played at Rio, Aria, or Wynn as of yet. I'll probably take the free shuttle over to Rio for a bit since I'm staying at Harrah's and it is free. But, I'm sure Harrah's will be my go to spot. I'm a low roller and I know they'll probably have $25 table limits at least at the better casinos like Wynn and Aria. I'll give that a try for a little bit and hopefully the dealer won't be on fire to begin the action.

I enjoyed my play at Harrah's, Paris, and Aria. Aria charged only one dollar on the commission for my 25 dollar bets. Paris and Harrah's have quarters so they charge the full dollar and a quarter. It doesn't seem like much. But, I like to take every advantage that I can from the casino. Bellagio, Venetian, Palazzo, Aria all don't have the quarters. Harrah's, MGM Grand, and Paris do have the quarters. Caesar's and Wynn had high limit games so I don't know what they do with the quarters.

I just got back from a week in Vegas. Sorry to report that Venetian has removed their tiles game. Also, Harrah's has renovated their Asian games area and now has two tiles tables. I didn't notice any changes in the tiles games at Bellagio, Aria and Paris.

As both a player and former employee there, that surprises me. I'm sure one reason the Venetian tile game may not have done well is that there is a lot of foot traffic between the table and the wall, much of it bumping the player's chairs, which was very annoying. Anything they replace it with will have the same problem.

Hopefully the Palazzo game is still there.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Harrah's has lowered their minimum back to $15 per my visit earlier this month. This makes it the cheapest game on the strip and 2nd cheapest in town to Palace Station at $10 a hand.

How many tables does Wynn have these days? When I was there in 2010 it was 1 at Wynn & 1 at Encore. One of the reasons I would stay elsewhere next time I visit as I like to have a choice of tables. How many at Venetion?

Is the Rio game there 24 hours a day? I have decided to learn the game and spend my week there perfecting it... wondering if I'll have to time my playing around it. I'd love having a midnight game there.

I have played tiles at Rio at 1am at least once in the past year. Rio seems to stay busy late, but of course I can make no promises on their behalf. I do think if you ask ahead about it, they might accommodate you. FWIW, Harrah's tiles have been 24/7 every time I've played in their Asian pit. They make a point of staffing it.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I was at Wynn in March on a Saturday morning and that particular day they had two tiles tables there. At that time, one was reserved for a private group and the other was open to the public. I think the table limit was $100.
