for the new Bally's in AC, what's the coin in per Tier Credit? (slots and vp)



I didn’t play any slots. For VP I think the good games (I only played 96 JOB) may be $20/point but I wasn’t paying too much attention. Mostly there to run through some freeplay and look around a bit.
If anyone gives you 10,000 to 1 on anything, you take it. If John Mellencamp ever wins an Oscar, I am going to be a very rich dude.

Day 2A

Ended up playing the $25 S17 BJ. I think it’s 4 decks. U sat down at the shuffle and the dealer had the most elaborate shuffle I’ve ever seen. She washed each deck separately, shuffled it. Then shuffled all 4 decks together. Then broke that down and shuffled it all again. Other dealers didn’t shuffle that much. Heard pit tell the extra shuffling dealer to make sure cut card was 1.5 decks. Apparently she had been placing it thinner. Anyway, played 30 mins and won $60. To kill some time walked to Caesars and played some 96 JOB. Exactly even. Friend wanted to go to Borgata so I met up with him and ubered to borgata. Used a myVEGAS $25 match play at BJ and won. Converted $10 myVEGAS slot play to $5.

Borgata has $10 craps and $10 3/2 BJ. Pretty reasonable. I guess it is an off day

Day 2B

$10 craps at Borgata. Lost $380. One guy kept throwing the dice off the table. Maybe 80% of his rolls. The dealers starting commenting “here we go again”. At once point I had a drink on the drink shelf and a guy (not the dice off the table guy) walks around and starts grabbing at the napkin asking for one. I’d never seen anything like that. I yelled at him to leave it and he did. It was annoying. He also bought in midroll and then dropped 2 singles to move his 9 to an 8. So annoying.

Tin..... if your pre COVID enjoyment of a trip like this is rated at ‘50’ on a scale of 1-100, what does this one feel like? Meaning has COVID changes lowered it a tiny bit, a large amount, or not at all? Or perhaps increased your enjoyment? (Less crowded, non smoking?)

Interesting question. I’d probably say even at 50. Pros: fewer people (I hate being packed in at craps), no smoking (I don’t smoke). Cons: higher table limits (I really enjoyed those $5 Ballys tables In the pre-pandemic days), wearing a mask, having to worry about getting sick (I’m fairly young and no underlying conditions but still a concern), general less lively atmosphere.

The difference is more stark in Vegas. In Vegas I’m missing out on buffets (love buffets) and shows (I’ll typically see 1 show per trip). Plus I don’t like that AGC didn’t publish this year.

Day 2C

After craps, dropped $100 at quarter 96 JOB. No hands better than full house. Met up with my friend. Had a cheesesteak downstairs. Greasy as all hell but good. Uber back to Trop. No PGP open and BJ was $25, craps $15. Borgata had lower minimums. Ended up sitting at the stadium gaming. Won $130 at stadium craps. Think I’m about done for the day. Heading back later tonight. Will do a final accounting when I get home but looks to be about a $300 loss for the trip. Maybe a little less.

We were there last weekend, I wrote a little bit about it a couple days ago. We felt pretty safe, everyone was following the rules. We also missed the buffets.

The Jitney guys ask like $18 for the trip..

You mean the push chairs guys. They are officially called rolling chairs. In fact, they are AC Boardwalk Rolling Chairs, LLC.

Personally, I think they should be called Boardwalk Rickshaws.

FYI. The ‘Jitneys’ are the small busses that run primarily on Atlantic and Pacific Avenues, and cost $2.25 last time I checked.

I was there last weekend at Harrah's and felt that proper mask usage and enforcement had fallen off a cliff since my last visit 6 weeks prior. I've been vaccinated so I stopped caring about other people's stupid behavior but I definitely noticed a difference. Chin diaper city.

Yes the Rickshaws. I couldn’t remember the name of them.
