For slots, 1 credit = $5 wagered. For video poker, 1 credit = $10 wagered. I don't know about the poker room.

In the poker room, one would assume it would not take much, as your reward credits are your comp balance, and the lower limits earn $.50/hour, which is 50 rewards credits. However, another posted stated it took approximately 5 hours to earn 25 credits, so I don't know for sure.

I'll be staying/playing at Showboat Thursday night into Friday. If no one else can answer for sure between now and then, I'll make sure to check it out and let you know.

Re: New Showboat Poker Room?

I liked showboat and really enjoyed the small size of it...I am curious to see the new room though. I was there in March...even stayed there and don't remember seeing anything. Perhaps I need my eyes checked?

If they can simulcast horse races from across the country and keep up-to-date odds and payouts, I think they can handle this. Probably that thing that Al Gore invented could help them automate it.

i played about 4 hours and for parking i asked the floor and he gave me a parkring voucher. that you an
1)exchange at the cashier for 5 bux
2) use it for parking the next time the weird thing was the voucher he gave me was said to expire that day so who knows

Re: New Showboat Poker Room?

Saw the new poker room this weekend, but didn't have time to play. Heading down again in 1.5 weeks. Staying at the Boat and planning on playing LOTS in the new room.

The new room looks really nice. It seems much bigger than the old one, but with only 3 new tables, it should have lots more room (I hated getting stuck in the seats in the old room next to the columns where every fat person in the room would somehow need to get through).

Hey xxRodxx (or other dealers/floorpeople) - any chance of getting a 1/2 PLO game going? I know the Borg has a pretty regular 2/5 PLO game these days, but what about for us micro-ballers?

Re: New Showboat Poker Room?

taj gets 1/2 2/5 plo sometimes, when there a list the game usually runs, players just don't know it exists. when i hits 4 names push floor to call the game it will fill up. 1/2 I have never gotten that full only 2/5. I would love to play it full table at 1/2 tho.

I happy you like it. Yea the old room was tight, this room there is tons of room to walk between tables. As far as PLO I asked once, but I will ask again. It is the game of the future especially on the internet and if we can cater to that crowd it would be nice. I'll update after this weekend on that possibly.

Edit: Been getting asked a lot about O8 also so maybe ill get some word on that as well.

Re: New Showboat Poker Room?

As far as PLO goes guys we will spread the game if you want to play it. The best thing I can think of is for me to make a thread on say a weds about who is coming to play what at the boat this weekend and try and get quasi wait lists here. Then all show up at some reasonable hour and open a PLO game or whatever. I did my part, its ur turn.
