personally i think it could be construed as a little racist

What's up with all the monkey junk at SLS? Some casino employees have monkey faces on the back of their vests and its in other places.Personally I dislike it and its odd and not very Vegas like.





apparently, this

I still don't get it. I like the big Gorilla as an initial marketing strategy creating grand opening buzz. After that, I'm thinking WTF. I Think they should have had a mix of modern and nostalgic stuff. Resurrect some old Vegas signs and vintage Vegas concepts. Even the younger generations eat up old Vegas.

I haven't been there yet, but I'm impressed with their craps felt and table (or the photo of it).

Not if they keep monkeying around.

LOCALS PLACE? YIKES, granny get your party hat and dance clothing on. I will need a second look for sure, To much was going on and I had a few drinks, I socialized most of the time.

Seriously I'm not qualified to answer that(Remember my favorite casino is the Revel, if I could choose, but I only really care about AP opportunities). What's their marketing strategy? so far i don't think its good. You know how many times I have heard, "SLS, whats that?"

The clubs might do well. A club strategy might be the way to go. I heard they will have inexpensive rooms, certainly a plus. The Average frequently returning Vegasers just want a nice casino with fair room prices.

It's a very cool place no doubt, It's way better than any place near it. So as far as design YES, I liked it for sure. It was easy to navigate however, it's small(I like that) so how hard can that be.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think they had limited dinning?.

They even had some fair VP pay-tables but what local place doesn't? I didn't see any real good pay-tables on VP IE. 10/7, FPDW. I didn't really look hard to crowded. They didn't have some of the more interesting slots I expected yet to many slots for a local joint IMO. I didn't notice many E-Table games.

I didn't see anything that really got me excited or any thing really spectacular.

Locals like EZ parking. If I meet up with someone locally at a casino, I choose a place like palms or Rio, places with a parking lot. I tend to avoid places like Gold Coast, The Orleans, Palace Station, because I think they are trashy looking, unless they have something good going on.

Agian, They are going after locals? Yikes. Personally I would have went in a totally different direction as I already pointed out.

I didn't like the high limit room it was square, really bright, lots of red and no flavor and it didn't match the casino at all. BORING. I like that they are not part of the big casino chains, we need more and more of that.

A 15 with no picture. That's just cruelty.

Yes however that would be creepy, we did make a u turn to make sure she was not in need of assistance.

Definitely a shame the "15" is not on a digital image... :P

But at least you seemed to enjoy yourself, Axel. The side-by-side machine lockups looked hot too! ;)

There were a few articles mentioning a certain percentage of patrons being locals. Something in the range of about 45% of the business. I hope they do well as well being a smaller company but if loveman etc. wants something they'll just add it to the tab anyways.
