    per the LVRJ https://tinyurl.com/rdngg78

    Anyone in town that can report in as to how much of the 2nd floor may or may not be closed off? They're talking 800 additional square feet for the new "Canada-inspired Hockey-themed" bar and sportsbook with a revamp of the Keno and High Limit area.

    Any news on this front would be much appreciated.

    Curious. The upstairs ain't that big.
    So they're gonna take away some of the old school coin-in slots for this?
    Whoa....

    I’ll be there next week. Most of the coin in slots disappeared (except Sigma) in favor of video Blackjack and other dealer less video tables. It appears to me that he was using the second floor as an attic until he revamped the ground floor. Now it’s time to clear the attic.

    OMG! If the "Canada Inspired Hockey-Themed Bar" also has 8/5 BP progressives it will almost certainly be my new favorite place ever!

    I just booked a last minute trip to Vegas for next week (like I literally bought the flights five minutes ago). The trip is primarily to visit family so won't be much gambling, but I think I'll have to swing by the D at some point to see how construction is getting along.

    The main part of the sports viewing area will be in the old showroom. Something gonna give for the bar though. The old slots mostly are gone except for sigma and the new version of it as well as electronic craps etc.

    My gut is we get Bartop crap like longbar. I hope I’m wrong.

    Those slots were usually dead. This seems like a decent idea.

    By taking over the showroom area - they will gain LOTS of space. Not sure if they will need to take out any slots.
