    I haven't been able to find out much about this property. Does anyone have experience with the casino? Are the comps good?

    Played there casually a few times. Nothing really earthshaking to report. Very dark and industrial in ambiance. No big wins or losses.

    They are leaning more towards the young "commercial" (i.e. paying) customer.

    I took a "teaser" offer there, but "low played" them and didn't get a return offer. It's a small casino, but I guess that's a relative term since it's twice as big as Lucky Dragon.

    As a "strip" casino, I don't think I could make it my primary or secondary choice.

    Soon enough the only information you can find out will be something like "that place used to be called Sahara, SLS, xxx...".

    I stopped in there. It's a pleasant enough environment but as a slot player, I thought their assortment was lacking and a bit stale. I didn't stay that long but it's too soon to see if they respond in any way.

    Pop in there once or twice a year, drop a hundo each time. Get room offers for $19 + $10FP regularly.
    I like the place. Sure, it's quiet, but the free drinks are good and so are the food choices.

    I stayed there just once back when they were matching offers from other clubs. I ran $8K through their machines and I lost $1K in doing so the one day I stayed there. I never got much from their players club in the way of offers. 1 or 2 nights stay and I think $25 in free play + $25 in free food. Which is a garbage offer for me in Vegas based on the play I gave them.

    I got those low offers for maybe 6 months and then I never got a single offer for them again. Its been 2 years since I last played there. i heard they cater to the club crowd and don't actively seek out gamblers. From my experience this is true. The property is small, for Vegas standards, and I dont think i could spend more than a day there anyway.

    I have pictures of my room and such in an older Trip report if you want to see a "Day in the Life"

    I've been there a few times. I found the staff quite friendly, especially the waitresses. People complain about the tight slot machines so much that they've kind of scared me off of playing them.

    Played a ton of pai gow poker there, nice dealers, they have the progressive, $10 minimum during the day. Floor people were very nice and not too much of a snob to get a waitress, clean up the tables a bit, very family like there. Also ate at Umani burger, yummy, the sports betting place is kind of tucked in there. It was too hot to sit outdoors but we got to watch games inside. Fries not included with the burger, which annoyed me.

    Played a little blackjack, dealer was too fast for her own good, made a few too many mistakes, mostly paying out wrong. Not good.

    I got a room & let my brother stay in it, I left that night, so can't really review that. Looked bigger than it did online, quite clean, huge tv. Parking garage with warning signs here and there kind of freaked me out but nothing bad happened, no break ins etc.

    They send me random offers for $19 rooms and $10 freeplay, cet gives me almost no freeplay, no high roller here! I'd go there if I felt like going to Vegas and hiding out from the world for a bit. Usually around my birthday month they send a half off dinner coupon, so this year I'm going to try and visit my birthday month!
