Real Deal on the Treasure Island
Treasure Island was a neato place... great layout, great gaming, affordable yet upscale accomodations and a brand new identity crisis. With the end of family era Vegas Treasure Island found itself faced with a dilemma, either we go all the way to Circus Circus family fun or accentuate the Paradise vibe and try and steal some younger clientele from Palms, Rio and the Hard Rock. Who knows if this has worked, but they sure are marketing the place that way... gone is Treasure Island and in is T.I.. Perhaps a midlife crisis? Perhaps doomed to the fate of the wrecking ball? Either way, the pirate ship nonsense inside the casino is just plain tacky these days.
Are the vibes lucky at Treasure Island?
As well appointed as anything you'll get in Vegas that was built by Steve Wynn. The vibe is one of tropical pirate paradise with all sortsa scurvy pirate goodies and a sultry sexy atmosphere. The place has become a real middle tier meat market in the last few years with the opening of the semi-outdoor club Tangerine and the bombastic dance club Mist. These new "hotspots" have rendered the casino somewhat obsolete. There aren't nearly as many players crowding the tables and machines as there used to be, and the drink service at the slots is pretty much non-existant. The table games themselves have become a dicey proposition - if you're a serious gambler - go to Wynn Las Vegas and play.
What casino games are offered at Treasure Island?
Single and double deck blackjack pays 6:5 for a natural (yuck) and the games that do pay 3:2 for a blackjack are all continuous shuffle machines. Card counters and deck trackers stay away. The slots are tight and just don't seem "right". Their paylines don't line up on the reels and the machines are old or out of whack. This place needs some new hardware and a new vibe to its casino or its pretty much sunk. We don't reccommend gambling at the Treasure Island... go to the Mirage or the ultra spiffy Wynn Las Vegas for better action in a much more relaxed atmosphere.
Take your chances on absconding with some Pirate Booty at BlackJack, Roulette, Craps, Baccarat, Caribbean Stud, Three Card Poker, Let It Ride, PaiGow Poker, PaiGow Tiles and the Big Six as well as at a floatilla of slots, video poker, and a full featured Race and Sports Book.
