    Anyone board members ever been there? Can you shed some light on gaming conditions there (particularly craps)?

    I'll be travelling through in a couple of weeks and I'm thinking of staying there one night. I'm guessing that "Metropolis" is a misnomer!

    Thanks in advance, yoyo

    Been there several times, but most recently was over two years ago. Back then, I think the craps was 20x odds and double on a field 12

    My wife and I stopped there in July while traveling. Don't remember the odds max but it was $5 table with fire bet.

    Casino itself was a boat but we got a mailer since then that indicated they moved to an actual building onshore. Don't know if they took that opportunity to update to Small-Tall-All. We had also been there the previous July and a lot of the dealers were the same, mostly local, fun, friendly folks.

    As far as the town name being a misnomer, there is a fairly popular statue of Superman on the square, maybe two blocks from Harrah's. We drove by it but were not compelled to take a photo op.

    I think all CET properties are Fire Bet and not All Tall All Small

    Hit it during the Road to Rewards two years ago.

    Superman is a few blocks away.
    The casino is kind of dumpy.
    The hotel rooms are very nice, better than CET's standard rooms in Vegas (for any casino they operate).

    Worth stopping, definitely worth staying if you are in the area.
