    It is certainly more the exception than the norm to be at $300. I would only see it at one blackjack table and not at baccarat.

    I completely agree with the service of the bartenders. I'm kind of bummed that some of them transferred to other divisions of the property, but what are you gonna do.

    The regular limits on the mini games I've seen drop to $25 and the midi games might be $100, but nothing lower than that. There are no other perks in the regular high limit besides the drink service. Depending on the day, I think there are up to 12 tables running? I don't think there are more than 4 mini games at any given time.

    Might be a silly question - but is the baccarat area access controlled in any way? When such things as food are mentioned, I can't help but think that this would be a magnet for nickel players from the floor to come in, mooch a bit, and then slip away.

    Yes and no. Anyone can approach the open tables and play. In some high limit rooms they limit access to the free food and snacks to players of a certain level. Bellagio has some sort of sign outside their room with the snacks (can't recall what the sign says, and if it is limited to noir only or others also). I believe the room with the food at CP is limited to Seven Stars, although last time I was there I walked in to get a snack and nobody stopped me (and I am not 7 star)

    I worked on the original naming architecture for the Aria and pretty much most of MRI's properties. Funny how they abandoned the names, but the move is logical in hindsight: you aren't exactly 100% sober and people are so used to seeing descriptive names for these sorts of places (a suggestive name, means more people need to ask where or what it is).

    Fun fact: I named and architect-ed mLife. I still have the original presentations to Jim Murren lol

    Have you ever played Imperial Baccarat at the Palazzo/Venetian? The limits start from $5 to over $1 million. This is the best game to play in Vegas because you can just bet on screen and switch between four different games -- all dealt by a live dealer -- if things go bad on one hand. No dealers or pit bosses to interact with and you can still get points on your Grazie card. Plus, no tip needed!

    I agree, I like touching the cards and sometimes feel like going into Bruce Banner mode and ripping the cards and throwing them at the dealers while yelling "I SAID I DIDN'T WANT A MONKEY!!!"

    Same here, I walked by the monstrosity at Venetian/Palazzo a couple of times. I am intrigued to try it, but I do enjoy touching the cards and taking a few seconds to peek at them. I'm not insane like some other players who take up to two minutes per hand to just show what they were dealt... I do however like to take a deep breath before I lift one card at a time to look before turning them over.

    FYI, I was told by a host that the comps on those are way less than playing at a live table.

    Just got back from a trip at Venetian. They have about 6 midi baccarat tables outside and 1 regular table. The midi table starts at a 50 table minimum with a majority of them at $100. The 1 regular table had a $15 min. All of these tables are no commission "lucky 6" tables. I haven't seen these tables in the past as I'm accustomed to the no commission dragon 7/panda 8 tables. These "lucky 6" tables pay 50% on a banker hand when the banker wins with a 6. The side bet pays 12 to 1 if the banker wins with a 6 with two cards and pays 20 to 1 if the banker wins with a 6 on a three card win.

    I've always been meaning to give bac a try but just never got around to it, so thanks for this guide on the topic of where to play.

    I kind of wish this post was pinned or highlighted in some way, just because it's such an extensive guide on the topic that I think a lot of people are going to be interested in.

    I've got to come up with a better way of highlighting some of these resource threads. Pinning them generates complaints if we have too many at the top of the section. Plus, keeping them up to date can be a challenge. Need to do some brainstorming to figure out a better way. Thanks for the reminder.

    I do, but not recently. In fact, I think it has been at least four years since I played in there, so my info is likely dated. Back when I used to play there, it was a relatively quiet room compared to other HL rooms. Nice d├ęcor, darker lighting, and $100 minimums

    You're definitely right that some of the sub-forums already arguably have too many pinned threads.

    There almost needs to be a separate board just for the useful guides (a 'resource/guide' board) or something like it.
