It appears they are starting to
Take concrete steps to stop
The profuse bleeding of the
Mortally wounded patient
On the operating table:
1/ comps have been reduced
From $2.50 to $2.00.
Due to the competition, the
Loss of players may not be
Helpful.
2/ no more hot food in
The high end Pearl Lounge.
3/ Had a scary experience
In Cafe 500 this weekend. As they
Continue to cut costs be particularly
Vigilant over your food choices!
4/ waiting over 30 minutes for
Someone at the casino to answer
The phone is not uncommon.
5/ they started some new
Internet based way to view your
Promotions online. The website
Was not available to casino card holders
On Sunday,
Even as casino management
Insisted it was.

Nope. It's no longer a dedicated room. It's now on the main casino floor in a roped off area back near the arena entrance.

If you are looking for a quality burger, possibly the best I've ever had in my life, it's about 100 steps away at Villain and Saints. $21 but worth every penny. Life changing burger. Get the chef burger medium
Good call guys on the chef burger from Villains & Saints. Probably the best burger I've ever had.

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

I played poker for a couple hours at Ocean the other day for the first time. It wasn't too bad. I would prefer the room having walls and being a little segregated though. It feels weird being out in the open.
I did well playing but I was hitting some hands. Imo, based on my incredibly small sample size, the game is softer than some other AC places, such as Borgata.

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

So no new tables that supposedly had already arrived months ago? They're just removing wood and adding cup holders to the existing tables? And what's the new layout? Will it be somewhat closed off into its own section?

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

I posted a complete Trip Report in the Atlantic City General Discussion thread because I jumped to the Golden Nugget for a tournament but thought I would repost the relevant Ocean stuff in here (and maybe correct a typo or two, haha!)...

My free rooms in AC have dried up. This is not unexpected since people who put in way more hours than I do at higher stakes also have trouble getting rooms. However I was able to tier match my CET platinum card that I have only because I have the Total Rewards Visa card and I dropped a hundred bucks screwing around on blackjack at Ocean which allowed me to keep my status for a while anyway (I quickly lost it at the Hard Rock but until they have poker I am unconcerned).

I took advantage of a free room in Sunday night. Got there around 5:30 and check in was a breeze. I thought that the rooms when they were Revel were the best in the city. The amenities are sparser as Ocean but the room was still nice.

We heard great things about the burger at Villain & Saint so we eschewed the cheaper Wahlburger to give it a shot. They had happy hour specials but we had to sit at the bar area to get them. We did this though it was annoying.

After a pretty good flatbread with feta, I was surprised that the server told me I pretty much had to get the burger as it came. I wanted to just get a burger with cheddar and grilled onions but that was evidently not possible? $20 for a burger and I cannot even customize it with ingredients they should have anyway?

Worse, when I decided just to get the Chef Burger (which Ms. Native also got), despite ordering it as rare as they could make it, it came out cooked all the way through. I don't send food back very often but this was unacceptable.

Being at the bar, the guy who expedited the orders was right in front of us so we lodged our complaint with him. He was apologetic and said we'd get new burgers in four minutes.

"Make it three," I said jokingly. "We really do like it rare."

Somehow they managed to have the next one not really be rare either. It was kind of between medium rare and medium, but at least it was juicy so we ate it. Honestly it wasn't that great even and I wonder how three separate people in this thread said it was the best burger they ever had.

We hit the ice cream place and the very nice lady gave the wife and I free cookies because she was a Giants fan and I was wearing my LT jersey. As a Giants fan who lives in Philly, it was one of the few times that I got something more than grief wearing it.

Went up to the room to digest and relax for a bit. Wound up crashing and getting a much later start to the gaming activities as a result, not hitting the casino floor until around 11:30 PM. Immediately I turned $20 in free slot dollars into $36 so I was ahead of the game as I approached the poker room.

I played until 5:30 AM with a couple of table changes as games broke. Some guy sitting next to me caused the floor to change the setup because he picked his nose and touched his cards. Not long afterwards he slow-rolled a guy on a four-spade board when he revealed his six of spades but only after he made sure the other player saw it did he turn over the Ace of spades for the nut flush. He did it to a nice guy and I felt terrible sitting next to this disgusting piece of crap. Didn't get into any hands with him though.

For a six hour session, it was pretty uneventful after I picked up Kings and Aces the first four hands. I never won any huge pots, never had much of my stack at risk. I never was up more than $100 or so and never was down more than $80 or so and concluded the session up $65. Not the best hourly but a win is a win. Including the slot money I was up $100.

Went back to the room and collapsed for a few hours... When I checked out the next morning I was able to use the comps I had for the play plus some I still had on the card to cover the entire resort fees for the room other than $3.89 which was nice.

I am hopeful that six hours of play at Ocean was enough to merit future Sunday rooms from Ocean. If it is, we will definitely try and make it to the shore again, especially when the weather gets nicer.

meaning the wine, whiskey, and beer soaked old felt is being replaced by new felt, and there will be cup holders and there won't be knees, legs and feet hitting against wood at the tables. I took a photo but don't know how to post it.
They were working on the first table when
I was there today. I don't want to write
A 'review' until I've seen the finished product!

Re: Ocean Resort and Casino (Atlantic City, NJ)

The new tables have phone chargers
And cup holders for each seat!
(a nice touch!)
And they are a little lower in height
Making it easier for the dealers
(To bend at the waist)
To reach chips in front of
the 3rd and 8th seat!
I love the new table, looks
Great!

Cup holder positions in seats 4 to 7 are so close together. Very tight.
