On episode 60 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle’s back and there’s a ton of news to talk about! But first, are we making trip plans? Craig’s definitely going December 1st-2nd for TravelZork’s ZorkFest and Kyle’s hoping to fit in a day trip on the 1st. Then, so much news:
For our 59th episode, we respond to listener questions a month or two after getting them! Hopefully they’re still relevant to the people who asked the questions. Topics include:
Issues with online hotel booking, especially comped or discounted rooms.
Property-specific comps within Total Rewards.
Definitions of high, mid, and low rollers, and where we fit.
Best “bang for the buck” for low rollers.
Kyle’s “Diamond in a day” story.
Updates on Revel/TEN (still closed), Atlantic Club (still closed) and Trump Plaza (still closed).
What we’d like to see improved, and what we’d do if we had Straubian amounts of money to invest in AC.
Note: Craig mistakenly claimed that Caesars placed a deed restriction on The Atlantic Club property but that’s not true. They put a restriction on Showboat. Just kidding! Atlantic Club does have a deed restriction on it. Thanks to David W. in the Facebook group for clarifying.
In this very special episode of Due For A Win, we attempt to provide a primer of sorts for people who haven’t ever been to Atlantic City or haven’t been in a while. We start by saying we don’t like to compare AC to Las Vegas, then proceed to compare AC to Vegas for the next hour and a half. Included in this timeless gem:
A highly abridged and somewhat accurate history of Atlantic City.
The most comparable Vegas casino for each AC casino, which you’ll strongly disagree with.
A rundown of all the hotel towers so that you know what the heck you’re booking.
On episode 57 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle and Craig talk about their trip to Live! Casino Hotel in Hanover, Md., which included Interblock’s stadium craps/blackjack/baccarat/roulette terminals and having to pay for drinks. Then, some news.
On episode 56 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle and Craig discuss their status for the April 2018 Connecticut casino meetup (spoiler: not looking too good for us), then they get into the latest news:
On episode 54 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle and Craig attempt to remember their Atlantic City trip from more than 10 days ago, including what they ate and where they gambled. Then, some news:
On episode 53 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle and Craig discuss their August 10th-11th trip plans and then get into the news, including the rumor that Glenn Straub has sold (or is in the process of selling) the former Revel property. Also:
On episode 51 of the Atlantic City and Casino Biz Podcast, Kyle and Craig discuss the $220 million offer for Revel that almost certainly won’t be accepted, and who we’d love to see buy the property if Glenn Straub actually sells it. Also, a bunch of other news:
The latest on AC Fan Xpo’s lawsuit against Showboat.
