Has anyone been to the Cosmopolitan? I am heading to Vegas this weekend and was wondering if anyone knew what kind of rules they offer for their craps and BJ games. Hopefully they haven't gone the Harrahs route and made almost every BJ game 5:6. Also, do they have pai gow (tiles)?

Have been there several times. No tiles. They say they cannot find dealers!!! Rules for craps: roll dice establish point, try not to make a 7 (nah, just kidding 3:4:5) Try ChinaPoblano. Get the "street sandwich".

I walked through and played a bit on my last trip. I really liked the atmosphere of the place a lot--it's upscale and fun, but without the snooty "rich people only" vibe you get at a place like Aria or Caesars. They put a lot of effort into making it a place where everybody is welcome to stroll through, and hopefully will be inclined to place a bet or have a drink while they're there.

As for gambling, the blackjack isn't bad. Better than Harrah's (but that really isn't too hard), about the same as what you might find at MGM Grand for low-rollers. All single-deck tables are 6:5, but they are clearly marked and thus easily avoided. The players club seems stingy--played BJ Switch at $25/hand ($50 total) for about an hour and haven't gotten anything yet.

I hear its become a yuppie favorite. Free pool tables, free concerts, Boulevard Pool is becoming an "in" spot for the bikini brigade types. Some kinks being worked out still though.

Has anyone heard about a "hidden" pizza place on this property?

Still, thought, not a bad effort for DB's first try, right?

Maybe they just don't have their poop together yet. I signed up for a card and promptly started playing a penny slot machine at max coins for an hour. I expected to lose $100 in 10 or 15 minutes but after an hour I was back at $100 so I cashed out and left. I figured that I showed them that I'm exactly the kind of horrible gambler that they would like staying at their property. As far as offers, just crickets and when I log in to the web site, slightly less than rack rates for Monday thru Thursday. I'm going back to LV in a couple of months for 5 nights. I would have liked to stay at the Cosmo but Harrah's is comping the whole weekend. If it's free, it's for me.
Someday, joor goin' to see the name of Googie Gomez in lights and joor goin' to say to joorself, "Was that her?" and then joor goin' to answer to joorself, "That was her!" But you know somethin' mister? I was always her yuss nobody knows it! - Googie Gomez

Exposing $100 at risk for an hour doesn't seem like something a casino would sit up and take notice at. I realize some places take past play and extrapolate, but your reports suggest that the Cosmo won't be going that way. $50 at BJ switch for 1 hour = 60 hands... $3000 total exposed. At 1% that a $30 EV for the house... not sure again that's going to start up any excitement.
"Then you can admire the real gambler, who has neither eaten, slept, thought nor lived, he has so smarted under the scourge of his martingale, so suffered on the rack of his desire for a coup at trente-et-quarante" - Honore de Balzac, 1829

Yeah. Hidden Pizza. Its there. They don't promote it at all.
Seem to recall some podcast discussed it. No signage. No ads.
