Re: Foxwoods Resort·Casino (Mashantucket, CT) -- FAQ in OP, updated 2018.02.26

When I owned my own business, I always used to think to myself about how to get less customers, because I hate money.

Is this room going to be for daily tournaments too? Otherwise 60+ still seems too high. Other than Monday Madness it never gets that many going. Granted it's a non promotion day but there's only 15 tables running this afternoon. The new room will seem as equally dead.

A few things I was told today....

- The Festival slots area is CLOSED for renovations...so smokers will have to go elsewhere on breaks or go visit the Asian Gaming area

- The Cage wall in Rainmaker will come down next week so those who had Safe Deposit boxes will be able to get them !

If you need 100 dealers one day a month (let's say 10 in the early AM, 65 in the swing, and then 25 in the PM), while the other ~30 days you only need 40 (10, 10, 20) maybe it's not worth the labor cost just to increase your monthly profits by ~2%.

Even if you can make the math work for 100 and 40, there has to be some two numbers A and B to where it would not. And if B keeps going down, well, there ya go.

BTW, will they at least get any foot traffic in the new room? (Not that I care, in three weeks the woods of Connecticut will be a fond memory, unless the setup in Everett is completely sideways. )

Nope. Tapatalk has a glitch where sometimes a user will show a different user's avater (someone within a few posts).

Email I just got. Many here probably did as well but some likely did not.

Great news-you’re moving up! Upstairs to the newly-renovated Rainmaker Casino, that is.

As part of our Rainmaker Casino renovation, the Poker Room at Foxwoods is relocating. Beginning at 10AM on June 28, 2019, you’ll get to enjoy fresh new surroundings and a customized gaming space in the revamped Rainmaker Casino. The current Poker Room location will be closed on June 26 and 27, but scheduled poker tournaments (including daily tournaments and Sit & Go’s) will remain open and available for you to enjoy.

Have we mentioned that the new Poker Room is conveniently located near the brand-new Rainmaker Buffet? We have a feeling that our newest Wonder is going to become your new go-to for breakfast, lunch, and dinner! The place is huge, with a sleek, contemporary design. The all-new menu offers dishes prepared lightning-fast just for you. Plus cuisines from around the world and a seemingly-endless variety of freshly-prepared meats, pizza, soups, salads, seafood, and desserts.

We care about your opinion. Many of our recent changes have been implemented based on our guests’ feedback. To that end, we hope you’ll spend a few minutes taking this survey. We’re always striving to improve, and we’re eager to hear your suggestions for additional changes you’d like to see.

We love our Poker players and we’re confident that you’ll end up loving what we’re doing with the place. We’re proud to offer our Poker players a world-class gaming experience–and that will never change!


Sincerely,
Terry Chiaradio
Director of Poker Operations

The buffet can't be the go to place for a poker player to eat as that line on Saturday went all the way to Panera. Weird selling point.

Hi all,
Looking for information about the rake in Foxwoods and the rewards program in place (2$ per hour at 2-5NLH?)
Can someone let me know? Thx.

He means for all games. 2-5NL was just an example.
