    My Trip Report

    just spent 4 nights at the palace
    face masks are required and the palace is being very very anal about it
    table games are a joke , the tables are elbow to elbow jam packed and they have minimum buy ins
    like 200 - 300 come on , lets get real and minimum bets of 10.00 rare 15.00 and 25.00 more common
    biloxi thinks they are vegas now
    i asked one of the employees why the hard line on the masks ( they are constantly telling you to wear masks)
    even in the buffet area , but yet the tables are over crowded , his response was not my area of concern
    dont get me wrong masks have there place , but if i am gaming and there is no one near me that baby comes down
    i did finally get one of my biggest wins on an old style whales of cash
    .50 bet first spin i got all 5 money bags !!! yay 50.00
    2nd spin i got money bag then a whale then a money bag then a whale and a money bag
    the whales were both x4 ....so it was 50.00 x 8 .....hell yeah 400.00
    the other bonus spins sucked
    now the i.p and the beau and the pearl ....once you got past security with your mask on and were in the casino , well no one gave a shit if you were wearing a mask or not ...
    just saying cause i dont wear the mask , its bad to breath in all your
    old breath and not to mention hot . no thanks i would rather stay 6 ft away
    on dining all the resturants were jam packed not the casinos but outside
    over crowded to the point we didnt go in
    i did get ill from the palace buffett on mondays lunch , not happy bout that
    it rained alot ...oh well
    i think i will stay away for awhile since it really isnt any fun with all this covid nonsense ruining things
    most machines are very very very tight esp the nugget
    one thing i dont get is why the table min for roulette is 15.00 and no one is playing ( thats you pearl)and yet they wont lower the minimums and the person working there just stands there all day

    Mandatory masks yet the buffet is open and the casino table games are. Seems contradictory on there part.

    I had almost the same experience at Palace and mentioned it in my TR a few weeks back. They were doing a great job sanitizing and distancing slots, but 10 feet away was a 12 player craps table and a huge line for the buffet right behind it. It boggled my mind. Masks werent required yet when I was there but recommended and most slot players had them but nobody at the elbow to elbow craps tables or tightly packed buffet line. You'd hate Vegas right now, but at least they are more consistent there.

    Honestly they should all be making sure everyone is wearing a mask at this point. It has been ordered by the Mississippi Gaming Commission. If a casino gets reported as not being compliant, they are in danger of not only being fined, but losing their gaming license. It should be consistent at all the casinos. Keeping their doors open is at stake.

    The key - if it's reported (or if they do spot safety checks). The people playing won't report it because they want to play. The people playing slots near them, or someone that is simply uncomfortable with it would likely be the ones to report. Employees probably wouldn't under fear their casino will be shut down & they will be unemployed again. As you say, it definitely should be consistent with all of them.

    Surprised the Beau hasn't clamped down with their 7 point safety plan being pushed.
