Iím in Reno for the first time

The first difference I encountered was how donít pass bets are handled. Once a point is established, the bet travels to that point and then you give the dealer your odds bet...so itís treated like a donít come bet. Iím not fond of this method since I like heeling/bridging the odds myself on my DP bet.

Every craps table Iíve seen has been $10 3/4/5

Thatís it so far. Overall Iíd say Reno is similar to downtown Las Vegas, though Reno looks much cleaner

Why not keep going on to Tahoe, which is beautiful.

Atlantis and Peppermill Reno have nice suites but - you don't feel that Reno is a dump?
I tell you itís wonderful to be here, man. I donít give a damn who wins or loses. Itís just wonderful to be here with you people.

I passed through Tahoe en route. It is beautiful

I wouldnít call Reno a dump. But comparing it to a nice Vegas strip casino is sort of like comparing Chiliís to Mortonís

I doubt Iíll be back, just passing through

Reno has become a nice place to live, but I wouldn't want to visit there.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Have you checked out the blackjack games? I am curious to know if the traditional handheld games Reno is famous for are now dealt face up without players touching the cards?

I thought that was supposed to be mandatory here in Vegas, but it turns out some places are complying like Stations dealing double deck games face up (no touching) but some places like Boyd are still doing it the old way.

Also I don't know about craps but one of the big differences you will see between Reno and Las Vegas in blackjack has to do with what betting limits are tolerated and draw heat, if you are varying wagers.

Went on SWA site compared prices Denver to Vegas or Reno, mid September. $122 vs $193, Vegas wins, but by a smaller margin than expected. Now to retire to Colorado!

Check Frontier. They are based out of Denver and very cheap to Vegas. I don't know about Reno.

Actually before coronavirus hit Frontier had expanded their routes from Vegas and was flying directly to Philadelphia, for anywhere from $89 to $129. Extremely reasonable. Frontier cut back it's routes dramatically when Vegas shutdown and now only flies to Philly with a stopover in Denver. I am not ready to fly yet anyway, but I am sort of hoping they pick up those routes again when this is all over.
