    Hey gang,

    Does anyone know of a hotel that has gaming at the pool, beyond BlackJack? Love to find a Craps table. :hmmm:

    Wynn had a poolside dice table last time I stayed there. It was a couple of years ago, though.

    When I was there this past summer it was by the pool entrance and the main bar.

    Couple questions:

    -Can you gamble at/access these pools if you are not a guest at that hotel? Ex: I'll be staying at PH, can I access the Flamingo pool?

    -Are the limits particularly high or the rules really shitty?

    -Are the drinks comped as they would be on the casino floor?


    I love the pool and I love gambling, so thinking of trying this on my next trip. Don't want it to be more hassle than it's worth though. Thanks in advance for all responses:beer:

    Gambling at the pool always sounded strange to me. Do they make you put on your shirt! Are girls gambling in their bikinis? Where do you put your chips if you want to go in the water?

    The Flamingo was checking room keys, so I do not know if non-guests can get in. Craps was $5 and I was the only one playing (it was a half table though). Blackjack was crappy 6:5. I doubt drinks are free.

    No, they don't make you put on your shirt, and YES many girls in bikinis :wink2:

    For Encore Beach Club, that is its own dayclub (and same space is Surrender at night), and the gaming pavillion is open to anyone who's in - whether by virtue of having paid a cover charge, on a guest list, or doing some form of VIP/table/cabana bottle type service.

    Indeed the drinks are comped while gambling and don't count against any minimums (a big plus IMO, since they are pricey at the bar like any club!) Limits are not unreasonable for a Wynn property - $15-$25 BJ and $10 craps is about average in my experience. I play craps at EBC extensively and the crew there is fantastic - to run that game in a dayclub environment is certainly different than the casino!

    With the Wynn's poolside gaming, the daytime is just the regular public pool area, but I'd imagine they do check room keys for access. That same space is the outdoor side of XS at night.

    Of course Caesars has their swim-up blackjack under the "grotto" accessible most days for any hotel guest with access to the pools. Never seen any poolside craps there.
