I did last night, see above. Sorry but I could not get near a craps table but looked typical of any other Horseshoe property.



I think you mean because so full of players? (excuse the stupidity of the question but I've been abroad for a number of years)

Personally I'm shocked that Cleveland Ohio has a full on casino. I'm in for some more shocking casino news and experiences when I return. I recall having to go to Las Vegas or Atlantic City, the others being strictly slot machines and bingo.

Last night all tables I saw were $25 minimum except for UTH, Let it Ride and 3 card poker. Poker room was full. Tables were full. Place was crowded I will not go back for a few weeks until the newness dies down. Did not stay long pretty much just a walk through. I do not like to play when I fell like I am part of the cattle drive. You have to get a total rewards card even if you have one. The ones we use in Vegas and AC do not work. I did not wait in line this time. I paid $6 to park which they validate if you play for 30 min. or longer. I think there might be a minimum tier credit earned attached to that. Very nice inside but narrow and not a lot of room to walk around.

Is it the new TR logo, or you have to get a new number?? I know Caesars doesn't own the place outright, so I wouldn't be surprised if they did have different numbers, but they've been advertising it as a TR casino. I'm Diamond, so hopefully I won't wait long if that's the case, but I've had my same number so longer I have it memorized.

I was thinking of going up on Sunday or even tonight, but if it's still crowded, I'll wait a few weeks. Toledo is a bit farther, but it's a Hollywood, so I'll only go up for my casino chip and to walk around.

Teddy said previously that its is a temp and don't know when the permanent one opens. Its in the Higbee building a few blocks from Quicken Loans Arena. There could be better vp but didnt see any. It was too packed to check all the machines and tables. I don't think they allow surrender on bj either but not sure. Parking was/is expensive but can be validated with 30 minutes of play time AND 15 teir credits earned with the TR card.



This is not temporary. I would doubt someone would spend $350m for a temp structure.

There are plans to build an additional building on the opposite side of of Huron between the road and the Cuyahoga River. Rock Gaming is actually bitching about needing to fill in 15 feet of the River to build the Hotel, but because it is still used by shipping vessels they need the Army Corp of Engineers to recommend it, and Congress to approve it, so that probably isn't going to happen.

The plan is to then connect the two via a skyway. The original idea was to make one section smoking and one non-smoking, according to Len Komrowski (the lead for Rock Gaming), until he was informed by media that Ohio is a smoke-free state.

Rumor has it Len also bought the new seats for Quicken Loans Arena and made them smaller to fit more seats. When the contractors went to install them, the fire chief shut it down due to lack of egress for the new max capacity. Rumor as it he cost Gilbert a little more than a million on that F-up, but he still works for Danny Boy, so he must do something right.

I am not sure if you get a new number or they just register your card there. I had to do that the first time I was in AC. My last trip to Vegas I got the new style card when I checked in, but it is the same number and both work. When I get around to waiting in line I will let you know.

So I got an offer yesterday evening from Horseshoe Cleveland, inviting me for a free two night stay Sunday-Thursday this coming week. I don't have two days off, but I'm only 2 hours away, so I'm going up Sunday, and staying at the Ritz-Carlton. I'm sure table mins will be way out of my league, so I'll probably wait a couple hours to get on a limit poker table (NL action will be ridiculous).

I'll log some VP time, even on a less than optimal schedule, so I can at least get my RC's registered there. Luckily, lines should be short since I doubt there are a lot of Diamonds in the area.

Just for fun, I logged into TR. For the period from 6/19 to 6/22, Horseshoe will let me book the Ritz for $335 TOTAL. www.ritzcarlton.com is $445 EACH NIGHT. There's a little subsidization for you...
