Stopped in the Cal last week because I hadn't been there in a yearand I was also booked at the Orleans (so some Boyd play couldn't hurt) and I was on the waiting list for the poker room at the Golden Nugget. Call me surprised when I walked in. No more dark casino with old shades of red and brown. Chandeliers hanging from the casino ceiling! Bright white new cashier cage and a new hotel check in area. Sports book ( located in the Cal Sports Lounge) downstairs and is combined with a sports book bar! It is a sharp looking area that really stands out within the Cal. Craps tables are also new and there is new carpet throughout casino! Most of the good vp, plus the only full pay super double bonus quarter vp machine (4th alcove above craps table) is still in its spot! The Market street cafe had a half hour wait to get in so I couldn't get in to check out their new digs. Upstairs still looked the same, minus sports book. I understand that the hotel is also undergoing a remodeling. I'm looking forward to seeing what it looks like come march madness! Valet parking is also free ( unlike the four queens).
