I hope they succeed.....I hope all casinos succeed. If casinos are doing well, then us (the APs) will do well. Hopefully other casinos will be built in the area and a whole bunch of casinos do well.

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.

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.

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?

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).

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' . . ."



Eat real food . . . and you won't need medicine (or a lot less!)

My solution, free food for all gamblers. They can give a hamburger and fries cheap, fill the place, and start thinking about the future. This place does have the revel feel, maybe they scared away too many people, the majority of the population. Slowly creep up play requirements as the place gets too busy.

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.

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.

That was exactly what I was thinking. AP's don't want any casino people coming to this site.

Ah, yes. Why didn't I think of that.
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.

The Chinese just have different customer service expectations. We gotta remember that before Wynn and Sands set up shop in Macau, forced tipping was a real thing in a Chinese casino. It's was their way or the high way.

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.
