    Interesting. But given the casino, this might be a smart play.

    It depends on how many high limit slot players prefer to play in an isolated place.

    A few other casinos on the strip don't have dedicated high limit areas either. The one that really springs to mind is the Linq. Does Circus Circus have one? If it does, I don't think I've noticed.

    They (Circus Circus) had one in 2016 when we walked through but it may be gone by now.

    It is enclosed? I've never noticed an enclosed section at least. I know "high limit" VP is just one carousel and a few other units in the main VP section.

    I would expect that the Stratosphere really didn't have all that many people playing High Limit Slots since it isn't exactly the spot for high rollers on the Strip. Coffee with a high markup would probably make more profits for the place.

    High limit slots = 90% payback = about 10% markup. Starbucks coffee = 400% markup. Easy peasy :)

    That’s such a terrible space, feels like you’re in the corner of a pub.
