Look, Bally's is not focused on a poker room so expect that. The cons with this are less than stellar location, chips, chairs, table spacing, noise, etc. Pros: weak players. There are a number of regulars that spend their days feeding of the drunk & inexperienced players, however, even most of their play is too tight or too aggressive. The townies I played with seemed like Rio/Venetian/Bellagio dropouts that had trouble mixing up their game and couldn't handle the bigger rooms. They weren't bad per say, just clearly not at that level. I'm not saying I am, but I did take their money so.....
reference above as I began to digress too much.
Bally’s Las Vegas is ideal for those who appreciate classic hotels in Las Vegas, right in the center of the Strip. While it captures the feel of Old Vegas, these rooms have upgraded room amenities like flat-screen TVs, docking stations and pillow-top beds. Stay in the stylish Jubilee rooms featuring red patterned accent walls and rich woods. Bally’s spreads six daily poker tournaments. These tend to be small tournaments, especially early in the day. The structures are on the turbo side. That is typical for a poker room like Bally’s that appeals to recreational players. There is a $50+$25 tournament daily at 9 am, noon, 3 pm, 5 pm, and 11 pm. History of Ballys. Once known as the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino until it was renamed Bally’s in 1985 after being sold to the Bally’s Entertainment Group, this hotel was regarded as the first real “mega” hotel on the strip when it opened in 1973. Bally's Atlantic City; Number of Rooms: 1214: Number of Suites: 24: Price Range ($) 56-319: Exclusive Deals: Wine Down Package, Turn Up The Romance Package, Pop, Fizz, Clink Package: Amenities: Buck Wild Arcade, WSOP Poker Room, Party Pit. Does Bally's have any play x-number of hours and get a free Sunday-Thursday room deal in the works? I got a free room in AC on 9/15 at Caesar's unrelated to poker or any comps (the wife got approved for the Total Rewards Visa and one perk of the card is a free room) and I anticipate playing at Bally's since it's right there.
I won't say excellent because a number of the dealers would sporadically call out the action and when you are in seat 1 or 10 that is quite helpful, but all in all they were good. Friendly and skilled at their trade. There is one sexy little asian girl who totally screwed me in regards to the hands she dealt me but I absolutley fell in love with. She got tipped well and she was a good at what she did.
one word: fast. It sucks waiting around for your drink. You never will here.
nothing special nothing bad so you get an average.
