    Hell-Ton of Table Games Replaced With Machines at Caesars Entertainment Casinos
    50 Replies
    Caesars Entertainment is in the process of removing entire swaths of table games at its Las Vegas casinos.

    The table games are being replaced with electronic table games and slot machines.

    At Flamingo, for example, a large table games pit outside Charlos’n Charlie’s is now populated by slots.

    The move from table games to machines has flown largely under the radar, but that’s why there’s an us.

    We visited several Caesars Entertainment casinos on The Strip and the changes are dramatic.

    At each of the casinos we visited, large portions of the casino floor have either already been transformed, or changes are currently being made.

    Here’s what’s up at Harrah’s.

    If the labor situation doesn't change soon this trend is going to continue at a much faster pace.

    Table games will be one of the things that actually does die from the king flu. .

    Who knew the CEO of Caesars (technically Eldorado Resorts) was such an anti everything but gaming type of casino boss?

    I didn’t.

    This guys attitude is basically “here are the tables, here are the slots”….that’s all you get.

    They’ve cut back on all external entertainment. He doesn’t even want restaurants. If it wasn’t so hot here, he would convert the pools to slot parlors.

    This guy should be running bingo parlors. Bingo and day old coffee.

    Had no idea he’s really not into the resort set up at all. More Motel 6 than Ritz Carlton.

    Not a Vegas guy. Not a good thing, either. He’s the anti-Wynn….who was all about the full customer experience. Like I said, this guy wants Vegas to be a room of table and slots. They’ve been pulling tables left and right to install slots at just about every property. You want food, “go pick it up at McDonald’s on your way home”.

    Brutal transformation of the Strip.

    Agreed.....Here Keshena removed all table games and they had craps, roulett, and 10 tables, Bowler has
    a bunch and maybe has three open, craps is closed, Lake of Torchs 2 open craps closed, Wittenberg, no
    tables, Green bay, tables open and 1 craps table.

    I didn’t do the actual count but someone listed the table games removed from Vegas casinos in the past year, year and a half. I think it was around 100 tables removed to put in electronic gaming.

    If gamblers are about gambling and table games are their priority….they might be better off in Laughlin if this continues. The vibe of being on the Strip is wearing off as cost cutting and “visitor experience” amenities are put in storage.

    No reason to go to Vegas. I can play electronically controlled payout slots anywhere. They are shooting themselves in the leg. Many many people go to Vegas for the table games.

    If you book a room on Bconnected, read the fine print. The cheapest room when I booked one yesterday was in Albert Lea instead of one of the hotels right next to the casino. We went a head and booked it since it's my annual be a good husband trip so the wife can go to the Little Somalia, I mean Minnesota state fair and she likes to get there at gate opening time.

    They claim they know what they’re doing.

    I’m skeptical.

    The room in Albert Lea at a comfort Inn was $104.00 after they tacked on all the fees, for a weekend night. Google maps says it's a 19 minute drive to Northwood. For some reason I was thinking it was further than that.

    I may go up to Danbury tomorrow. The table there was always a little lonely. Will see if they still have one.

    I told you they were “going down”. Who is going to pay the inflated p4ices, to play slots? :confused: Well, it was a good run, but I guess, all things must end. Without water, Vegas wasn’t going to work anyway. With limited food choices, the convention business, won’t be back either. Vegas isnt the only “hit”, I’m seeing serious economic damage everywhere. With all of this excess government spending, the U.S.Dollar, will be absolutely worthless in just a couple of years.

    What do you call a casino without table games?

    In Ohio, we have racinos which have simulcast betting and/or live horse racing along with slots. Mountaineer is 100 miles away. They have 2-$15 tables. Ten years ago they had 6 tables and always had a $5 table open. We're talking West Virginia, where I would move to if I ever left Ohio. They are the friendliest people in the country. They have a nice race book too.
    Food is ordinary, on a good day. Pack a bag lunch and dinner. At least take a bag of beer and a couple Moon Pies.

    I don't think that we will ever go to Las Vegas if table games are eliminated. What will seniors do with the extra money? Leave it to the kids?

    I have horses to fall back on. Can you guys exist on the bubble and electronic shit?

    I wonder what they are doing in Reno? Stayed 2x at Atlantis and 1x at Grand Sierra. Both are nice.

    we had deadwood around 2 weeks ago....tin lizzie hampton inn.....we didnt have saturday night because of outrageous price a week before online.....the night before they lowered it to 343, but then there were fees. tacked on.....when I checked in a thursday, I explained Id like to stay longer, but I cannot pay that kind of money, he gave me the room for the same price as friday, which with all fees was under 300. with more mask mandates and lockdowns, I believe alot of casino towns and casinos are going to have to start giving away rooms again.

    by coincidence we visited friends in austintown for dinner and when we left, we drove over to mahoning gaming, little did we know it was their opening day.....I remember saying wow, packed so packed noone could walk....then asked someone who worked there and they told me it was opening day.....we never heard of it before that day..................all slots...horse betting upstairs I believe.....dont know how its set up these days. that was years ago.
    I hate to see live tables dissapear, but my luck seems to hold up on bubbles so as long as they keep the mins at 5 or below, Id probably play them until Im dead.
    but for me, Id still love a 5 dollar table with 20 times odds......damn, I miss all the casinos in mississippi. Hope they make it out of this pandemic ok

    No, I was at Circus Circus back in the day, and that’s what the slot casino right beside it was called. They served “carnival food” too. It wwas kind of an “open air” place, I don’t think they even had doors.
