Re: MGM National Harbor Resort & Casino (Oxon Hill, MD); FAQ in OP

Seminole Hard Rock in Tampa has their poker room 2 escalators removed from the rest of the casino, and it's always packed.

The problem with Revel was that you couldn't find the room even if you had a map.

That was when Borgata first opened. They didn't move it downstairs. Not a fair comparison.

I cant speak for how it used to be set up, but the borgata is currently directly across from the club, and its kind of a known thing to make sure youre seated at a table when the club is closing for the night, because a parade of drunk people wander in to spew.

Anyone who thinks drunk whale wandering into caisno is a myth need go no further than the borgata on a prime clubbing night.

I dont think moving it would cost you a large number of customers, it would just cost you some small number of the best customers for the rest of the players, which might affect the casino ecosystem in the long term.

As someone who went to the revel caisno, the issue wasnt really who could get there, it was the atmosphere. It just felt dead inside. It didnt have a gambling atmosphere. Im sure thats why no one showed up.

A lot of regs want to soundproof from the slot machines and whatnot. Its a bad idea though. Those sounds were designed to encourage gambling, whether or not they are annoying.

Parx did just fine for a long time.

Of course, feeling like you're in the mix of the hubub is better. Room is sweet now, so nobody is gonna be that thrilled with any change, tbh.
