A look at Down Town LV

#1
I have spent a small amount of time playing the games Down Town in LV so I would like to see if I'm missing anything in my evaluation of the area.

1) El Cortez- The best game Down Town (and they know it)
2) The D - Trash
3) Fremont- Trash
4) 4 Queen's - Unplayable
5) Binion's - Unplayable
6) Golden Nugget- Practically unplayable due to there only being two tables open in HL which are hawked
7) Golden Gate- Trash
The missing casinos here I have not played so a report of the conditions would be appreciated. I believe I'm missing Plaza, California, and Down Town Grand.
The conditions Down Town are depressingly bad from what I've seen. During my trip(s) to Vegas I just avoid Down Town because extracting money from that area is like trying to draw blood from stone, it's not easy.

I got backed off at the DTG last November spreading $15-$125 at double deck. Meanwhile I was spreading $25-200 at the Golden Nugget no problem that trip, probably played about twice as many hours at GN compared to DTG.

Generally agree with the rest of your assessment, except I think The D could maybe be playable, if a bit noisy.

Pen at the D has been horrible for my last few trips (most recent was Feb). 2/8 cut, no surrender if I remember correctly.

GN was quite tolerant of a fairly large spread, but I kept my sessions short (and lost!)

nugget had 5 double deck tables on the main floor for a few years but that was down to 2 at the end of last year and from what i've been reading is now 0

No offense but how can you call El Cortez "the best game downtown", when they only deal 1 round on the single deck games, no matter HOW many players and they hawk the DD games like German prison guards at a concentration camp during WWII? LOL
