    To me, more importantly, how are they still in business? Stayed once, visited many and as others have said, casino is dead. And building a new tower. Some one has deep pockets there......

    Supposedly occupancy rate at the hotel hasn’t been an issue. The casino on the other hand....

    I like it and all. But I haven’t stayed anywhere else in DT. Isn’t it similar to The D in terms of room quality?

    My apologies for the slight deviation from the topic, but what is the best pool downtown?

    Yeah, it outdoes most of the strip pools.

    I have never used the pool at The Nugget but in looking at it through those windows, it looks like you are packed in like sardines.

    Cool looking but I don't think I would enjoy sitting there...

    I’d do it if I had a cabana.

    The DTG pool is more chill but not dead. And the cabanas are a reasonable min spend.

    Here's a review of a DG room from Matt Bridger. He's a big fan of the Grand, I think mainly because they are quick on drink service on the floor (maybe because its slow!)

    I plan to drop by DTG on Wednesday to use up my free play. While I'm there, I'll see if they're actually awarding those points.

    It's not unfair for offering ~100% games. I will be trying to make an appearance this week to dabble a bit of that 10/6 DDB prog. and 9/6 Boner Deluxe w/STP at the bar.

    Same. I may swing by in a couple of weeks. Send my parents to the Elvis show over at QQQQ and then go hammer some progressive vp and also pick up some Le Thai

    I just got back from the DTG. I can verify that it is $10 coin-in = 1 point on video poker, good for 0.04%.

    Thank you for confirming this. Their website hadn’t been updated as of a couple of days ago.

    Yep. Also 9/6 DDB UX (99.7%+) for nickels+.

    Hit this on my last hand of the session (I wasn't vulturing then I swear! Lol). I left the pic out of this thread because I didn't want to put all the good pics up before posting my TR...lol
