    My Trip Report

    I was last there two weeks ago and there have been some changes. The biggest is that they now allow smoking in the casino, but only in designated areas. About half the casino floor is non-smoking. Shuttle bus driver opined that the change was because they were losing money while smokers stepped outside to smoke. I had one incident with a smoker who just left their mask down permanently to chain smoke. I asked him, he was not playing but just watching a friend, to move farther away from me since he was not wearing a mask and he did so without complaint. In my humble opinion this was a dumb move on the part of casino management. Non-smokers far outnumber smokers and we should not have to suffer the consequences of smokers not following the mask guidelines to smoke. They can just go outside.

    You still have to pay for drinks. Staff were friendly across the board. It was not very crowded except for very popular machines such as lightening link. I got a comp upgrade to a balcony suite on my comp room. It was a pretty sunset so I actually enjoyed the balcony view. Shuttle hours are still limited. I took the last shuttle back at 8pm.

    I managed a big bonus on 5 cent lightening link ten minutes before the last shuttle, so I left close to even for the night.
