Thought I'd dredge up this old thread and see if anyone has been by the 1000 islands casino or any of the other Ontario charity casinos lately.

I dropped in there there on a whim while passing by about a month ago. It was the middle (and I mean the middle ) of the night so the tables were closed. It's in a nice location, nice part of Ontario to visit. I wandered around a little but didn't get much of a look at the tables (they were cordoned off) dropped a few bills into a nickels slot machine, betting every line, won $90.00 in half an hour! Hopped back in my car and was off.

I'd like to go back there but am interested to hear people's experiences with Blackjack and Spanish 21 in the evenings. I've heard that it's tough to get a spot at a table at all on friday/saturday (so wonging is hardly an option) and have heard conflicting reports about CSMs at the Charity casinos: some people saying they were on every table for a while, but then started to disappear after people complained.

Anyone been by there recently? Busy? Are comps possible? Is there any possibility of finding a $10.00 or $15.00 table any time other than tuesday morning?

I've personally never heard of comps at that particular casino. The rest...I can't really tell ya.

Well, OLG does have a players' card program, the "Winner's circle rewards" winnerscirclerewards.ca but it's... not exactly generous. There is also, as far as I can tell, no way to earn points for table play.

I have a feeling they're not allowed to give out free alcohol, that seems like the sort of rule that would exist at a gov't owned casino in a province where there are no non-state-owned liqouor stores... but surely there is a host or someone on the floor that can recognize and incentivize big players?

There was a recent news story about comps on Ontario: http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...63/singlepage/ but I don't think any of the casinos mentioned are OLG charity casinos.

games are mehish. Not a lot of tables but it's not too hard to get a heads up or short handed game. 5-100, 10-100. just a couple open tables. Poker is okay. Games just like pretty much all OLG joints actually.
