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.

I hope they do well. I never want to see a casino fail. Only want to see them get desperate? Not sure, Do casinos offer more with promos and intensives when they do good or less.

I have seen it go both ways.

They have a 8/5 a bank of bonus poker progressive $25 machines$4 over reset.

The 8/5 BP on those $25 progressives only pays 30 for all quads (98.48%). The BP on all other denominations on the same machines is the standard 99.17%.

That would make sense(i didn't look that close), seemed off they would have something like that on a progressive $25 machine. Or did they change it already:)
Did you check the meter?

I popped in yesterday for a quick look. This would have been about 7:00 PM on a Sunday. The place was packed and the line for a player card was long. However, still plenty of room at the machines and tables. Must have been a lot of people just walking around checking out the new place, like me.

They are obviously going for a young crowd while at the same time appealing to Asian players. Lots of roulette and baccarat. This was at the expense of fewer BJ and craps tables.

I put a few pictures and a couple tables on my SLS review.

I have to get something off my chest. When I was there I noticed a 6-5 blackjack table with a $25 minimum and four players at it. Meanwhile there were empty 3-2 tables at a $10 minimum in the same pit. As they say, there is a sucker born every minute.

Out of curiosity, did they have pai gow tiles?

Unfortunately, no.

No. Nobody ever tells me secrets.

No, I didn't play and no one else was playing that at the time.

Are you sure the quads were not 35? There is a Bonus Poker pay schedule with quads at 35 that pays 99.66%.
