    Was hoping to hit some off strip casinos when in town next month.

    We have a Boyd property about an hour away from us in Indiana. We are always treated well there and wanted to see more of their places.

    We enjoyed Fremont and will be staying at California for this trip.

    We hit Joker's Wild during the last visit and had a good time playing $1 craps for a few hours.

    I heard Sam's Town was $3 before the pandemic. Can anyone confirm what their limits are now?

    Do they have all of their games open or just a few of them? Their website mentioned that craps, blackjack and PiGow were open, but wasn't sure if that was an extensive list.

    We might check out the Cannery while we are over that way as well since it is so close.

    I was at Sam's Town last week during the day, but as a 99% slot player, only paid attention to the Slot Games.

    They have the new GoT machine "Winter is here".

    It was very quiet.
     
    Well, Canada and Massachusetts are closed, back to Lake Tahoe
    Oh what the heck, I've got vacation and myVegas points to burn. . . .

    Be sure to jump on the Sam's Town motor-coach at the Cal... no charge. You can check it out and, if it's not your cup-of-tea, jump right back on the return ride, (or go to Harrah's from Sam's).

    Thanks for the tip. We will have a rental car for the trip as we plan to visit lots of different casinos and restaurants while in town. With MGM removing parking fees, having a rental car is more affordable. We have 4 different hotel stay as well. Having a car will be invaluable.

    I think Eastside Cannery is still closed.

    Not sure if they still have it running during COVID however I can attest to how convenient and CLEAN the shuttle its. Its very decked out..I was surprised how nice it was. Took to to/from Harrahs and then downtown to the Cal. Saved some money by not using UBER/LYFT.

    I'll be staying there 08/14 and visiting Jokers Wild among other properties. I'll check the minimums for craps at both places. Let me know if there's anything else you want to know and I''ll try to find out. I'll be on Boulder Highway from most of the trip. And yes, Eastside Cannery is still closed.

    The Jokers Wild website says the table games are temporarily closed. Hopefully they'll reopen soon. I'll be there just a couple days after you.
