Would you like a little 6:5 with hit 17? This place is a joke. Opens at 11pm. At 2am every restaurant in the while place shut down. Thousands of people couldn't get so much as a turkey sandwich.
I went around 4 am and half of the blackjack tables on the main floor were 6/5, all but one (which was $25) at the $50 level. A quarter of the tables were $50 H17 CSM, and the other quarter were $100 S17 shoe. High limit had a dozen tables, mostly $200 S17 shoe.
Craps (they have 10 tables, eight of which were open) was $50 min, 3-4-5x odds.
Roulette was mostly $25, and there were carny games (3CP, 4CP, LIR, UTH, BJ Switch) at the $15-25 level.
And yes, my understanding is that the only VP is at the bars.
$50 dollar craps at 4AM. Ouch. Hopefully things settle down by next weekend when I plan on visiting from North Carolina. Worst case scenario I can go to MGM for food, drink and hotel and hit Horseshoe for more reasonable limit games. Hard to imagine things wont settle down given competition from MD Live and Horseshoe. (Both around 50 minutes away). I will update this thread next weekend when I visit.

Fifty dollar minimum bet at a craps table is too rich for me, but please remember that just as the people posting here are "testing the waters" or 'planning to test the water'... so to is the casino staff measuring the public's response and getting things smoothed out during this period.
I would recommend getting a free room if its offered solely to stay on the list. Free is free even if the tables are too rich for your blood.
May none of you have security concerns entering the property, may all of you have security concerns while leaving the property due to your massive winnings.
Remember, many people to whom you address questions in a casino don't have the slightest idea what you are talking about but will never let on that they simply do not know. A newly opened casino can be the worst.
I'll be curious as to how that Craps Minimum evolves. Depends probably on how the crowds react.
