A lot of these new rules and regulations the casinos are hyping won’t be enforced. A lot of PR hype to get people okay with the idea of reopening. Anyone really think the pit bosses are going to wipe down the player’s spot every time someone leaves the table?



That’s exactly what I been saying. All these emails and announcements coming from casinos about new procedures and “7 point plans” and “revamped guidelines”.. it’s all nonsense. Go into a casino about a month after they reopen. You’ll feel like your back in pre January 2020 again. Aside from the customers who’ll have masks on.

Bottom line, when you take part in casino gambling you’re taking a health risk. You always were , now there’s just an additional and more highly contagious risk. I will not be shocked if there’s an outbreak in southern NJ after AC opens. As of now it’s the only area of the state that’s been lightly hit because it’s not as densely populated.

MGM now taking reservations for these dates:

Bellagio, NYNY: June 1
MGM Grand: June 4
All other MGM Vegas resorts: July 1

I suspect the first three resort openings are what they’re really aiming for right now and the other resorts could get pushed back further than July 1 based on demand.

I would suspect that not necessarily be the case, the majority of AC casinos are fairly empty during the week. Borgata is really the only one that has a steady flow of patrons. Most of the competition from PA and Philly has cannibalized the AC crowd and if anywhere, I would pick Wind Creek to have the first incident of outbreak.

They had a handful of employees test positive and they bus in the most people on a daily basis. I haven't been there in a year and don't ever plan to go back. They were infested and a health risk since they opened table games 10 years ago. Heck, they wouldn't even give bottled war to you if you didn't have Preferred Member Player Card, which is very tough to get no matter how much you play there.

A manager at wind creek once told me they have 8 buses come in from NYC each day. Wonder if they’ll still want that crowd heading in.
They are switching to appointment-only gambling according to their email.

I guess it depends on the contract with the bus company and the driver's willingness to be exposed daily. If the bus company makes Wind Creek adhere to their contract AND the drivers agree to a compensation rate adjustment(for better or worse), then I suppose the buses would continue.

I do know of one bus company that ran 3 daily buses to AC and 5 during the weekend, will be shutting down indefinitely and has laid off several drivers who did the AC run. One of those drivers texted me personally to inform me of this. But they were hardly ever full and were barely staying afloat prior to covid closures.

We are headed to an inflationary or deflationary spiral. It probably has already happened and we don't even know it. Seems like we're damned if we do, damned if we don't, and damned because we can't do without the system in place. I'm tired of looking for something to eat and being unsatisfied, and in the future, people could be tired of not eating.

Added: Our society is falling apart. The shit thing about all all the money the fed is spending is it really is mostly being spent in ways which it's not even real. Money to pay for things which are just contracts with no real value in them by themselves. They're not spending a trillion on a trillion's worth of shoes or apples, it's just being spent in digital ways. The pain will be felt in real ways for people who are in the bottom 50%. If I think about it, now there are people with a motive to not want things to return similar to what we had, enough billionaires would make more money with a shut down, reshaping of the world we know. The only limit is the imagination. My first thought would be there would be a motive to spread this virus to some people.

They won't. They will argue that because the dealer is wearing a mask it doesn't matter.



No way can they. If wearing masks obviated the need for '6 feet', then we could have full tables just by requiring patrons wear masks. Either 6 feet matters or 6 feet does not matter.

If you give an inch, they'll take a mile. I'm pretty sure 5'11" is ok but I'm not sure 1'11" is ok. As more people get sick, it really has to get better.No treatment, no vaccine, cannot all wait for this to be true if it winds up being the case.

I agree it shouldn't be okay, but the six feet social distancing will not be enforced.
