Mine is having a soft opening for invited guests (definitely not me) on the 8th, more general opening on the 10th.

You have to make a reservation to play. The time slots are 3 hours in length, with an hour in between wherein the place will be emptied out and cleaned before the next batch of players. Per the casino app, "If you 'no show' on your reserved date you may incur penalties."

Bring your own mask (mandatory), no smoking.

It doesn't state specifically, but word is there will be no table games, and therefore no Calder.

Makes me wonder what the average normal capacity is.

That article says 15% would be 1,400-1,500 at a time. That seems like a lot.

How often is a casino at 100% capacity? My guess is that when the place is as busy as it gets, capacity is nowhere's near 100%.

Any casino people here who can tell us what "normal capacity" is on a Saturday night? How is that determined? I have never been unable to sit down at a slot machine, regardless of time of day, day of week, or time of year.

The maximum capacity is decided by the city, usually the fire department. It doesn't change by the day of the week. Trying to count the people in a Vegas casino must be a nightmare. How do you determine who is passing thru and who is gambling? I can't imagine a hotel guest being denied access to the casino.

The bigger the casino floor (square footage wise), the harder it would be to gauge that.

I would say New Year's Eve gets the most people on a single night and it can get to the point where you are running into someone every 5 seconds whilst walking the floor. At Sands PA about 6 years ago on NYE, it got so full they stopped letting people in the food court and forced individuals to wait in lines for entry. I'd say there was around 10,000 people there that night.

I guess the private card rooms in California are about to open, I just read Oceans in Oceanside is opening this Friday, the 12th. This I gotta see. This ain't an Indian casino. Used to be just poker, then table games popped up but the House only collects a fee, by law. I haven't looked, but this must mean The Bike, Commerce, etc., cannot be far behind. Gonna be different.

At least there's no smoking issue, they solved that years ago.

I play at this casino and I asked my host yesterday, the penalty will be a temp-ban for up to 2 weeks. When you make a 3-hour reservation it shows you how many of the 500 allocated guest slots are used up. They don't want those wasted.
