HL at The D is only 25$ (unless they hike it up when there's more than one person in there...), for what it's worth, so it's not exactly "threatening".

If the High Limit room is $25, its my kind of place, particularly since the best BJ rules are usually in the HL room.

Quote: Venthus

The dealers there are kind of iffy; one insisted that you had to match a matchplay exactly and then claimed that 3red+5white is equal to 1green. ... when I pull a BJ. And the dealer just stops for upwards of a minute, waiting for a tip,.

Now that right there would put the kibosh on the place for me. Restaurants, pretty girls, free beer, music, shows, .... so what? If the dealers don't know what they are doing or are going to try to force tips, nothing will make up for that. Nothing. And certainly not the same Quarter Pounder I can get anywhere anytime without any trek to Vegas.

In the end I got an offer from the GN that was to good to pass up, plus good upgrades in the hotel so I'll be staying there. Maybe I'll walk over just to check out the dancing dealers and play a little $5 Carribean Stud Poker with the wife. It's a silly carnival game but she likes it. The real gambling will be at the GN.

We're planning a trip next month downtown and we're looking at the D. Opinions are welcome especially about:

MOST IMPORTANT: Is it aimed at the younger crowd?



That seems to be where the aim is but they hit a lot of older folks in the scatter.

1) Who's considered a high, medium, and low roller so I know how generous they are with their comps.



High: $25 average bet.
Medium: $5 average bet.
Low: Derby player at quarter per race.

Quote: Lucca3927

2) The rooms you've stayed in and their quality. The D suite would be nice for free but it looks like it's more for bachelor parties.



I think when I stayed there it was still the Fitzgerald's. The room was small, furnishings were old, but decently clean.

Quote: Lucca3927

3) The overall quality of the casino, especially if it's to smokey.



This is an old property pretending to be new. It's smoky, loud, and definitely on the economy end.

Quote: Lucca3927

4) How does it compare to the GN?



Golden Nugget is much nicer.

Quote:

5) Anything else you'd like to add.



If I were on a $100/day budget in Vegas, I'd probably be happy at the D. To be honest, I prefer sister property, the Golden Gate.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I just got back from my trip last night and I'll answer my own post about the D:

The D stands for Dump (or dismal, or depressing).

I walked around for half and hour. The dancing dealers all danced like they had metal pins in their hips and couldn't wait to get out of there.

It was pure smoke and their other claim to fame, the D bar, was just a long piece of wood.

Thank goodness for the GN.

Casinos need to get rid of these dancers. They are all horrible. None of them want to be up there. The ones outside on Fremont on the bar near plaza are the worst.
Expect the worst and you will never be disappointed. I AM NOT WHO YOU THINK I AM.

I think they should take their tops off and let us put dollar bills in their panties.

I don't know, but the EV on carrying around some personal hand sanitizer would shoot way the hell up.

I always carry around hand sanitizer on vacations anyway. Especially Vegas.
