Thankfully, my wife and I used the last of our free play their last week. The last two times we ate at their Phoenix restaurant we were the only ones there from 6pm-7:30pm.

Wow, fast indeed. Anyone that stopped in here have any thoughts on why they didn't do well?
Playing it correctly means you've already won.

Maybe everyone else thought it was only for Asians and didn't go. They must have screwed up in other areas as well.

I would say at first it was simply their difficult-to-find location, then lack of games.

When I visited in December 2016, the service was excellent, the food was good, and the games they did offer were decent. But they didn't have roulette, craps, and pai gow tiles. They didn't have much blackjack compared to the numerous baccarat tables. It was quiet on a Saturday afternoon, which was a bad sign. They eventually added pai gow tiles, but by then it was probably too late to get those customers.

Later, I had heard their service went downhill. Hard to recover from the already thin offerings.

Terrible location
I visited it once
Uber driver was not sure where the entrance was and dropped me off next door
Not surprised it closed due to location

"Lucky Dragon officially opened Dec. 3, 2016, thanks in great part to EB-5 financing. With EB-5 financing, investors (typically from Asia) contribute funds to projects and get green cards in return."

Could it be the casino was a "...if this works, great, but I received what I really needed..." situation?

Probably because they sent FreePlay 2 weeks late after it had expired. They screwed with some AP's. They locked my card just before this suddenly happened. Coincidence? You Decide.

I heard the investors didn't get their green cards and cut off their funding. Don't know how true that is and I'm sure various stories will come out about the closure.
