Laughlin Conditions – Page 2

    Bolder than Brass !

    LAUGHLIN remains the utter waste of time that it has been for several years now.

    Conditions are miserable and heat is intense. The Status Quo.

    It is hard to forget finding a Laughlin casino shift manager taking a
    seat at the adjacent seat after I bought in for $200 and bet green.

    I was 86’d when I audaciously found the temerity to bet 2 greenies.

    It took about 10 minutes.

    Note: Unless you are collecting Social Security checks you will be out-of-place.

    Hi Guys,

    Any updates on Laughlin conditions? I am looking to play SD/DD, curious about minimums and if there is any decent pen. Understand there is some heat there though…

    Thanks!

    For a recreational player, Laughlin is fine. Better than most Vegas spots.
    Flash is talking out his ass once again. As far as the age of the people, it does get a large amount of snow bird retirees in the winter. This time of year, it doesn’t.
    Was there over Memorial Day weekend and not a wheelchair in sight. More motorcycles than walkers.
    Laughlin is a laid back,down to earth town. Pompous asses will not do well there.

    schad‘,

    We both reserve the right to have differing viewpoints.

    It will be interesting to see a “trip report” from cyclist.

    My experience is they do not tolerate green chip players. Especially at the Pioneer. Which is the place I am sure flash is talking about.

    Yes, BOTH of you are entitled to talk out your A$$.
    Isn’t that so, Brother Asslan? zg

    Pioneer has plenty of green chip players. They have a barefoot cowboy who plays multiple blacks at multiple tables, wandering around playing a hand here, and a hand there. What they won’t allow is you raising your bet mid-shoe. Your first bet is your top bet, same policy Binions had for many years.

    Pioneer is the only joint ever to eject me all the way to the street, not just the
    door or parking lot – all the way to the curb and me stepping off onto the road. zg

    I didn’t get tossed. Got shuffled on a lot. I thought going from 2 units of red to 6 units of red and getting shuffled on was just plain ridiculous.

    Can you lower your bet midshoe and raise it back up to the original bet later in the shoe?

    I played 2x$10-$50 with no problem. I left after I saw that the PB was watching me closely. I think I won $300 after 30 minutes? It was the shorter semi bald guy? the cowboy PB doesn’t seem to mind much.

    It’s SD and they rarely go beyond three or four rounds. With a full table, you rarely get a third round.

    Yeah. Since their tables have 7 spots.

    Damn.
    A H17, DA2,DAS, LS, SD game is just about break-even, isn’t it?

    The answer may be THEORETICALLY correct but who knows what kinds of tricks are played.

    I know of a game which on appearance is even better but I have serious concerns after the time I’ve put in and the loss I’ve incurred.

    These are ShuffleMaster games being played in a licensed casino. I’d be much more worried about being cheated by a rogue dealer than by these machines.

    All said and good but the variance I suffered does not necessarily allay my concerns. Nor does it make me want to go run more money through it.
