    Emirates actually did this with their first class "suites" that are in the middle of the plane, so that they have "virtual" windows to simulate the effect of having a real window beside you. I think it's phenomenal, the way they've done it.

    Oh man, that's a first-hand view of one of my favourite casinos that I thought I could possibly not ever see again for a very long time. This scratches me exactly where I itch!

    Or if he hit that royal then as opposed to this morning :eek:

    Jimbo, say that happened even with just the aces... would that have compelled you to extend your trip? :)

    It appears that despite the 3 seats per table rule that the machines in the periphery are not alternating off-on-off-on.

    No this was on the floor. A bank of four machines adjacent to the ramp that leads to the hotel tower elevators.

    I don’t think it would have extended my trip, but I might have tried to buy Chicas.

    No clear hookers yet, but I did see a bearded lady at DTG’s Furnace Bar last night. I was worried that taking a picture would have come across as offensive, disrespectful, or as trying to make a spectacle, so I don’t have a picture to post, but she was the archetype of what you would imagine existed in a 1920s traveling circus.

    @notfromconcentrate, here’s an image of the Cal’s keno lounge. It’s currently soulless.

    Probably only 50% chairs. That will lead to people playing adjacent machines at the same time. :nono::nono::nono:

    I think it'll be called "Jimbo's" now. Nightly contests of stacking dollar bills as high as you can.
