    COACH'S CORNER 

        


Question: Coach, do you have any suggestions for which Casinos to play?

After reading Soft Touch's article last month on her favorite casinos, I thought I might expand on that with a few ideas of my own. But first let me say that favorable casino playing conditions may vary from day to day, and from shift to shift. One of the things that I look for when scouting playing conditions are dealer friendly tables. Those are the tables with little or no "heat", and Pit personnel that are relaxed and encourage the "fun in the game". That does not mean that they let you get away without hitting the back wall, or taking too much time setting the dice. It means that they will give you a little slack when the occasional throw does not make it to that back wall. They encourage your game and have fun along with you.

That being said, here are my suggestions in order of favorite play:

On the strip:

1.

Venetian 

2.

Caesars

3.

Paris

4. 

Bellagio 
 5.  Monte Carlo
 6.  Mandalay Bay

7.

Treasure Island (TI) 

8.

Harrah's 

9.

Stardust

10.

Tropicana
OFF Strip:

1.

The Palms

2.

Rio (Owned by Harrah's)

3.

The Orleans (A Coast Casino)

4.

Las Vegas Hilton

5.

Green Valley Ranch (A Stations Casino)

6.

Casuaruna (Westin Hotel)
Down Town:

1.

Las Vegas Club

2.

Plaza

3.

Fremont

4.

Golden Nugget

5.

Binion's Horseshoe
On the other hand, here are some casinos that I usually avoid.  And, again remember that each shift and each day can bring a different feel to these casinos and their tables.
For the Not so favorable places to not play:

1.

Sun Coast

2.

New Frontier

3.

MGM Grand

4.

Mirage

5.

Alladin

5.

Circus Circus
 ...and ... Down town Not so favorable places to not play:

1.

Four queens

2.

Lady Luck

3.

El Cortez

4.

Golden Gate

5.

Fitzgerald's

These are just some of my thoughts, and your own experiences that may have differed in any one of these casinos.

Another 20 minute roll!  I think between that little modification and adopting your betting tactics, that this will work well in the long run.  Thanks again!  - Bill -
