So eerie, hard to imagine a casino dark and quiet like that. Thanks for sharing your pictures.
Spooky to see Gustav's Bar all dark like that. Thanks for posting.
Wow that's bit freaky... so whatever happen to those people they had money inside the slot machines? Does machine still have a record or? Because back up power didn't work and machines look totally power off
Wow, cool photos. Looks really eerie and quiet, just need a few Zombies and it's ready for Walking Dead does Vegas....
Here is another thread with some more info
They let you wander around taking pictures?
Actually I was stuck in the dark casino for 2 hours waiting for them to write me up a thing on the slot I was playing. Eventually they did close it completely but they were letting people come in from outside for quite awhile. I was just hanging out, they were handing out waters etc. none of the employees knew what to do.
Still waiting for my money they are supposed to be sending it.
Eerie and spooky for sure! Thanks for posting those pics. While I'm sure it was a bummer and a real PIA on your vacation it makes for some great storytelling.
Hope they hurry up and send your money and hope they give out some comps for the inconvenience you experienced.
Back when the local Harrah's still had a riverboat, occasionally when they would cruise and switch from the local electric feed to their generator they would sometimes mis-cue and have a minute or so of darkness. All of the slot machines would come back on with the same correct number of credits. At least that's what happened when I saw it.
I would hate sitting in the Dark, waiting.......Yes those pics are eerie.
I'm a nervous nelly about having alot of moolah IN my machine.
Anything can happen.......
So when I get some good hits, I cash out & save TITO.
How many (false) Fire alarms have you had to sit thru in a casino?
How about machines going OUT at Wynn, etc?
Poss. power outage, is another example, of why we should get in the habit of cashing out occ.
Cuz If I had to wait on reimbursement? Hopefully it wouldn't be for very much.
Good luck to those waiting on Paris reimbursement.
Felt like I was looking at undersea pics of the Titanic..pretty eerie.
That bottom picture on the left shows a die hard craps player at the table. I bet he is a ghost. Booooooooooooooooo,
Cool, thanks for posting!
Thanks for posting, we were there that week and saw it yellow taped off. Wasn't sure what happened
Back in 2001 about a week after 9/11 we were in Vegas staying at the Alladin (the new one before PH). The day we arrived the entire strip turned off their lights for 24 hours. The insides of the casinos dimmed their lights and other than the street lights the only light outside were spotlights on a giant US flag on the side of Ceasers. There was virtually nobody walking on the strip all night. It was so eerie but it was also a beautiful tribute and a show of mourning. I still remember the slot people at PH (pre-ticket days) walking around and pushing their carts with candles on them.
About 10 years ago we were in Tahoe playing at the Montblanc and they lost power. The generators didn't kick in very quickly so all of the machines started rebooting when they kicked in about 5 minutes later. Of course nothing works according to plan so many machines didn't come back correctly including the poker machine I was playing. It was interesting to watch about 5 slot techs run around trying to fix things. After about 20 minutes of some machines still not coming back the slot boss started walking around asking people how much they had in their machines and just giving out cash. People could have lied but were surprisingly honest.
