Since it has been 2 years that Penn National acquired the M, has anyone seen any differences in the Property? For good or bad?

Still not many hookers in the joint, have no idea why.

Partly because its so isolated but mainly because the M is not going after that sort of a market. Even the concert series there seems to get couples rather than single males.

I don't know if they're making money, but I've been there 4 or 5 times and enjoyed it every time.

I like the M. I visit the place nearly every time I'm in Las Vegas. I was not aware that it was taken over but I did notice an increase in number and density of slot machines the last time I was there. Nothing too bad though, I thought that they had merely added more gaming space.

Yes! First to go from what once was my favorite property was blackjack. Once really good penetration became very average almost immediately. Then the pit's attitude did a 180. Super paranoid with quick back offs. So much so that, I personally referred to them as El Cortex of Henderson. Lol. In a second wave of gaming downgrades, blackjack got even worse. 2 full decks of 6 deck games cut off, where it once was less than 1. And then the once decent video poker downgraded pay tables. And finally, the bounce back mailers, and M Resort was always among the best in Vegas began deteriorating. Less and less offers for the same play. Now so far, the changes I have mentioned are gaming related and particularly problematic for AP's. But this year, although I now visit infrequently, I have notice the once very good buffet, among the best Vegas, has become very average at best and is now way overpriced. Beyond that, IMO, the whole casino just has a downgraded feel to it lately.

I think that's how Penn operates casinos...buys or builds them cheap and them drains every last penny out of them....

This is what I've heard as well, but I'm getting more comps out of Hollywood St. Louis than Harrah's ever gave me. They also awarded me virtually all my TR Credits in "Marquee Rewards" comps when they took over, even though 95% of those TR credits where earned via the "Race to Rewards". VP also hasn't been touched yet, and they have the best quarter machines in the state. *knocks on wood*
