Default conditions

What were the average number of players per table during each shift you mentioned?

What was the action like during each shift you mentioned?

Was it sweaty or relaxed?

Did they sweat playing with ratings card or not

Could one ummmmm stand around? Were there a lot of people watching or wandering around?

Atlantis is a vacation resort, in fact most of the Carribean does not offer favorable rules, at least not worth risking any real money. My travels have only found one location worth the trip...St. Kitts.

Isn't St. Kitts where a casino owner pointed a gun at Tommy Hyland and demanded his winnings back?

Don't know, but it's now Italian owned and will tolerate heavy money...$500-$3000 per hand. They are also always willing to fly a player in, put them up n a suite, feed and entertain them as long as they play...win or lose. Rules are the best in the Carribean. I visit 4-6 times /yr.

It's not always about YOU. There may be other people here, for who it IS valuable enough to protect. Try to show some respect for those persons.

That's the one! Tommy refused so the owner of the casino (who essentially ran the island) took him on a nice little walk at gunpoint down an alley until Tommy decided he'd changed his mind!

A very pleasant surprise!

Its nice when resorts understand the concept of better blackjack games.

Default Atlantis

Here's something else to think about if you're planning to go to Atlantis: If you need to stay in touch with the "outside world" while you're there, you have limited choices. Roaming (voice only) on Verizon is $1.99/min. and coverage is spotty. Before I left, Verizon told me not to even think about roaming with data - it would cost a fortune. While I was there, I had to call Verizon due to the problems I was having. They do not have a toll-free international number, so I called from a pay phone at Atlantis using my credit card. It was a typical service call - endless holds, phone trees, etc., lasting the better part of a half hour. Total bill, over $85!!

For e-mail, internet, etc. you can buy internet access from the resort at about $16/day or use your 15 minutes of free daily internet access in the resort's library. If you anticipate having to make a lot of outbound calls to the US while you are there, I recommend coughing up for internet access, buying some Skype minutes and avoiding the pay phones, or at least not using the credit card ones (I didn't try the ones that use phone cards, but I've heard from a regular that they also are very difficult to use). I couldn't find free wi-fi anywhere on the property. I read that they had it at Riu next door, and I found that they did, but I was soon asked to leave the lobby because I didn't have a bracelet indicating I was a hotel guest.

In addition to the $85 phone bill, when I got home I received a surprise from my bank (Ally), which reimburses me all ATM fees in the US. While it did reimburse me the $3 fee each time I used the ATM in Atlantis, it added a $4 international interchange fee, or some such malarkey, to each transaction. That fee was not disclosed on the ATM when I made each transaction.
In sum, plan on spending a little extra money if you need to stay in communication with the US while you are at Atlantis and if you need to use the ATM.

Be aware also that comps are very tight. About $35 a day is added to the room rate in the form of taxes surcharges, compulsory tips, etc., and these are not comped. If you have a free room, you will pay those, and you will not be comped any meals until you've "earned" in comps the net room rate times the number of days of your stay.

If you like video poker, be aware that the best I could find at any denomination was 8/5 jacks or better.

The good news is that the cab fare to and from the airport is still $32 (plus $1 for the bridge toll inbound), and there is a very nice new international departure terminal at the Nassau airport.

While the comps are not as good as at most US resorts, and there's not much worth playing other than blackjack, the blackjack games at Atlantis remain pretty good and a $50 to $100 unit player can enjoy a unique resort for a lot less than "paying customers."
