Good Lord. The Strip was never all that welcoming to red chip players but, with the proliferation of 6/5 bj, casinos now spit in their faces and charge them to park for the privilege. Very sad.
And that's why I've taken my business downtown to the GN for the last 4 years.
I'm a veteran and the MLife Pearl active duty/veterans program discounts are really nice. My party of 4 got 40% off of the breakfast buffet every morning. Really nice.
We spent our last day mostly downtown. My mom went with us and it was her first time in Vegas and gambling, and, she got addicted to BJ so we decided to look for $5 3/2 tables. Went first to Casino Royale. How disappointing that place has become. No 3/2 BJ there and had $10 craps!
So we went back to Fremont to play.
Went into every casino on Fremont and none had $5 3/2 BJ. Only 6/5!
We ended up walking back to Main Street Station and played double deck $5 3/2 blackjack all day. Whole party won pretty nice. Played for about 3 hours or so before dinner, got dinner comped at the 777 Pub, and then came back and played for a few more hours. Had a great experience there, dealers were fun, and the casino staff was also welcoming.
They also have local craft beer on tap that is comped at the tables. The IPA was really good.
Overall a fun trip to Vegas. I didn't come home in the black but was only down about $200 for the trip. I would stay at The Mirage again.
That might be a good thing: those who are not winning their sports bets will be less likely to get sloshed.Quote: Wulfgar1224
The sports book has jacked up the price to earn a drink ticket now.[
As an Out Of Towner, I would not be likely to eat at chain stores, but I might make an exception for Panda Express.Quote:
The Chipotle, McDonalds, Panda Express, and Walgreens are all very close.

That escalated quickly
Gambling on the strip for low rollers is just not very good. Bubble Craps is an exception to a degree, since it offers more opportunities to spread bets without a table minimum. Of course, the field bet only paid double on the 2 and 12. I didn't bet odds this time so not sure what the max odds are, probably 3/4/5.
The craps tables did offer the ATS bets, but, the T/S only paid 30 - 1 instead of the 35 - 1.

I would agree except for the Treasure Island. I think it still provides good enough 3/2 blackjack rules even on weekends for $10 min (and $5 mins during weekday mornings).
