Ocean Facelift

Post by FAA »

The HL room has shuttered. In its place is the rather ersatz The Cove. While its name is boldly stolen from Harrah’s, it is glitzy and sparkling in every way. Cushy armchairs and couches are at the entrance, presumably for exasperated partners. The two ATMs at the rear were quite busy. It is an unmitigated success for them. VP pay tables still stink.

Wait, they removed the 9/6 dollar JOB and the good 99.92% Joker game?

I assume the great Joker went the way of the long gone great JOB. Great dining deals also a goner. I’m not going for the decor and free drinks. They obviously want the resort experience crowd.

Really? When was the last time you set foot in Ocean? And I don't mean the Atlantic. I wouldn't know about Joker, since I have never played it. But if they wiped out the entire room and its great tables, I doubt that game would somehow survive the facelift.

How about the forum refrain from commenting about whether a game that, at most, they assume(?) or think(?), may/may not be there and let's let Car actually find out if the game may still be there?

Nice picture though.....

VPfree data is notoriously unreliable, depending on players to contribute. Who knows when the last update was entered? Just an FYI. Most molehill threads become mountains on this forum. And most forums probably behave similarly.

Cove = Money Mausoleum. I wouldn’t dare sit anywhere but the armchairs and couches. I’m a better photographer than gambler. That hand pay has to eventually materialize!
