Lucky Dragon is aesthetically pleasing, bright lights with red/gold stuff everywhere. The format is kinda wonky, but it's cool. I like how it's small, although, a little too small IMO. It should be bigger or have 2 floors of gaming.
I don't like all the oriental stuff. I like regular American food like hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken, etc. There's no level 4 in the parking garage (wtf!), and bunch of writing is in some form of Chinese.
Only peaked in the high limit room. Looked weird if I remember correctly. Tables were up against the walls, so dealer's backs would be to the wall, thus players would be looking at the wall behind the dealer. That's kinda strange, I think. But the room is pretty small and may not be able to fit a "pit" in the center with players on the outside facing in.
For the record, the main entrance is off of Sahara. You don't have to enter through the back way or whatever OP was doing.
I checked your posting three times now, and I just want to make sure that you didn't get to play the advertised 3:2 $5 blackjack - or was it not even open?Quote: klimate10
If you look at those pictures I took, there is also no one on the second floor, and almost no one sitting at any of the tables gambling.
Readers: Partly from growing up, partly from my previous airline job, I've enjoyed the best (& worst) Chinese food in several countries on 5 continents (Asia, Europe, Africa, Australia, Middle East), and I can guarantee you this: as the food quality gets better, the customer service is likely (not always) to get worse. Even in Aloha Land (Honolulu), the rolling cart girls (ladies) will scream (not shout): "What you wan? . . . I go other table . . . " "How many? I give you one each, ok?" . . . "Take now, byumbye (later on), no mo' . . ."Quote: klimate10
If you want to see this stereotype in play, search for reviews of House of Nanking in San Francisco, where the Chinese food is delicious, but the customer service is brutal (I've been).
Ahhhh. Makes sense now. The Lucky Dragon is an EB-5 visa program. In effect, a way for wealthy foreigners, probably Chinese, to obtain green cards.
Explains a lot. Those wealthy Chinese who want green cards just need a foothold in an American business. They probably aren't too concerned over profit like publicly owned companies.
I don't think we need more surveillance people on this forum.Quote: KingoftheEye
Too bad about your experience. I know the Surveillance Director there. Nice guy. I may shoot him a link to this at some point. Then at least you'll get some feedback to mgmt. Then again, a surveillance guy has about as much control over customer service as an AP has over rules of the game offered.
I don't think we need more surveillance people on this forum.
That was exactly what I was thinking. AP's don't want any casino people coming to this site.
Some Chinese prefer America because the food is far more pure and business involves far less bribery and one can actually breathe the air here even though it takes them some time to get used to breathing air that they can not see.
Lucky Dragon is going to find out this isn't Stanley Ho's China.
But then again, I'm not sure Lucky Dragon is in it to make a profit, being that it's an EB-5 project with foreign money.
