    Hi all,

    Headed to downtown in 2 weeks, stayin at the D. Have always stayed on the strip so this will be first time staying off strip.

    Are there any new carny games (besides the normal carny games like 3 card poker, UTH, LIR, etc you'd see on the strip) to be found? Always have fun playing new,random games. Blackjack variants would be fun too.

    Also, anyone seen new slots like house of cards, orange is the new black, etc downtown? Or are those mostly only on the strip?

    Thanks !

    You'll find High-Card Flush (at Binion's), Mississippi Stud at 4-Queens, Free-bet blackjack at Plaza, Golden Gate & the Nugget.
    Good luck!

    They have Free-bet BJ at The D as well. I think most of them have BJ+3 where you can make a side bet on your cards, and the dealers cards making a poker hand.
    Last time I was in 4Q they had BJ switch, they deal you 2 hands of BJ, and you can switch the top card to the other hand. But, it's even money on BJ even without the switch.
    Oh, and The D has Big Bang Theory slots. :D I had good luck with this one, it's a $1 slot.
    The MSS had signs saying that they had it, but I couldn't find it. But, I didn't look hard.

    I was just at the nugget at the end of April and they did not have free bet bj. They did have a lot of great new slots like Orange is the new Black and House of Cards.

    Wow... guess it wasn't getting enough play for them. They used to have two freebet tables going at night.
    I did notice this past February that, for the progressive bonus bet at their 3-card tables (full progressive pays out on a mini-royal in spades), that it's no longer $1 - it's now $5. That's just plain crazy...and nobody was playing it.
