Then I could either go home and come back (I live close) or wait somewhere else on the property.

Instead, they gave me the big intercourse you and weíre stuck just standing there for hours if we donít want to miss our seat. ****ty service indeed. Makes me want to just play at MD Live from now on.
A great thing about the old room downstairs was the big vertical screen by the brush stand, where you could check your place on the list beyond the first 11 names.

It would be incredibly helpful if this were brought back.

Yeah I wish they didnít have ads on the vertical screens and actually had useful info on there.

Was going to try and come out today, but the 200+ wait list is insane.

How fast is it moving? Any point in showing up without having to wait 4 hours in line to get a seat?

The list is 248 right now for 1/3... Man, that is crazy.. I have no idea how long that would take.. I will guess if someone was to show up right now and wanted to play 1/3 it would take 3 to 4 hours..

This day has been hyped for a while. Not expecting a very busy day was foolish. I would guess the lists will be more reasonable later in the night.

Table 42 shuffler is not working, and told there are no spares, which is shocking. Dealers are told to hand shuffle. I'm not happy.

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

Just an FYI.... I think you guys may misunderstand what we are doing. The brush is requiring all guests to use Mlife card when they check in at the brush. When they are called, the brush will use the card and check them into a seat. When the player sits, they giver their card to the dealer. If the name isnít a match, we have an issue...

Let me be a little more clearer.

I went to your competitor's today due to the enormous crowd at MGM at 8:30 A.M. When I checked my food comps. at the other casino it was drained. The reason was I hadn't been there in over 3 months.

Does MGM have the same policy? Will I lose food comps. if I don't make an appearance within a 3 month span?

Iím pretty sure they expire a year after you earn them regardless of your activity. I could be wrong though.

Our comps have a 365 day shelf life on a day to day basis. If you earn $10 today, that $10 will stay on your account for 365 days. On day 366, $10 will fall off your account.

For how much of a madhouse it was I think the entire staff did a really great job keeping things running as smoothly as possible yesterday. Definitely seemed like the day was well prepared for despite the massive crowds in the morning.

Also for what it's worth I wasn't seated near the Snacks side but the smell seemed to be almost nonexistent all the way to 4am in the morning- big ups especially on such a busy day. I did notice there seemed to be more perfume/fragrance like what's being pumped in downstairs... not sure if I was just imagining that (but I also don't hate it).
