Cool system they have. She gave me my Revel card on the spot -- no waiting.
It was interesting that there were dozens of dealers in the poker room, all sitting at their tables nicely dressed in white dress shirts and black vests. Even though they weren't close to opening a second table when I was there, they were all there well-coached to sit up straight, smile, say hello as you walked by (if you happened to make eye contact with them, not just a wave of hellos). This was true throughout the resort.
I understand some of the comments about hiring dealers and others primarily on personality, but the friendly and welcoming attitude from the entire resort staff was more evident than any casino I've been to. They weren't in-your-face annoying about it, though. I hope they run the poker room well. If could see it rivaling Borgata for my time.
