Yesterday a new casino opened in Sparks. All of us local residents got a $30 free play flyer in the mail for signing up with their players club. So LovesToSpin and I checked it out this morning. We had to wait in a rather long line to get our player card. What I found interesting was that we had all of these 'locals' getting their $30 in free play but the casino was quiet and not really that busy. (More people in line than playing)
Well we soon found out why. LovesToSpin played $10 on three machines. Won almost nothing. In $30 of free play she ended up with about $5. Yikes!. I lost $10 in about 5 minutes. Not a good first impression.
The casino is small. They have about 300 machines. They are across the street from the Nugget.
The company that owns the casinos also owns some casinos out in the sticks. I'm thinking that they don't realize that Reno is a very competitive market because these machines were tight. We didn't see anyone winning. we spent more time in line for our card than we got on the machines.
So Sparky gives this casino a big thumbs down!
