I can confirm the access to the SG table games area is by invitation only this year. If you're invited, you should be receiving an Email soon, if you haven't already.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Wiz, I don't believe this is accurate. The tables area is outside the main area of the booth, no invitation needed. To get inside to see a majority of the booth, you must be registered to their booth.

Then what do you need the invitation for?

It's because that bar code on your badge has all the information you gave up when you registered, including Email and phone number. Anyone who scans it will have it. Then you'll get junk calls and Emails. Who knows how many people they will get share it with. Many booths offer free stuff and drawings. When you say "yes," they nonchalantly say, "Just let me scan your badge real quick." Don't let them, just say "I changed my mind" and walk away. It's not worth a t-shirt. Only let your badge be scanned by people you want to hear from. If they are there desperately scanning badges, you probably don't don't to hear from them.

As an aside, when you're just cruising the floor, don't be tempted to get pulled into booths of companies you are many degrees of separation away from. If they aggressively make first contact, just tell the truth and say that you're not even closely connected to their business. It wouldn't hurt to say "I'm not in the gaming business at all." To avoid the pitch, DON'T MAKE EYE CONTACT. This goes for all salesmen you don't want to deal with anywhere. It also applies well to strip clubs and certain casinos in Costa Rica and Panama. Thanks for listening.



Thanks Wizard. Good explanation!

To get inside to see everything other than table games and a handful of slot machines (slots, sports betting, system, lottery, etc). Electronic tables are inside, but felt tables, progressives, shufflers, and a few other things are outside, no invitation.

Well, I stand corrected then. Thank you.

I’ve never been that way, but for years now, I go to the self parking/valet at the Venetian then take the elevator down to the garage. There’s a pathway out to the street between the Venetian and Harrah’s.



Exactly. Exit down from Valet, crosswalk to the back side of Harrahs. There's a narrow side street almost directly under the monorail.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

I spoke to lawyer Jon Muskin yesterday. He’s coming and wants to join the WoV dinner if schedule permits.

He said Geoff Hall (Switch) is also coming and another name I forgot.

Although I didn’t ask her, I’m sure Heather will join us if we do something together.

Maybe the dinner / group gaming will happen this year. 😁

Anybody else coming?


Hi DJTeddyBear,

I second this suggestion. Perhaps anyone planning to go can meet at the Galaxy booth at the show closing on Tuesday and you can show us this secret route to Harrah's.



Hi Wizard & everyone, I would love to join you all at the WoV dinner! Thanks for organizing a meet-up and the thread. Please keep us posted if plans change. Excited to meet you all! Cheers.
