Real Deal on the Venetian
Designed to fit somewhere between Paris and Bellagio, the Venetian offers lots of different types of games at higher minimums that most strip casinos. The Venetian's casino is about 10 blocks from the asphalt on the strip - it's a hike. The Venetian's casino is also directly below the Venetians Grand Canals (!) - a design choice that adds to the weird vibes in the casino. There are tons of games, although it seems like most of the tables are closed whenever we roll in there. The clientele used to be a little older (50s) and well heeled but with the opening of Tao night club and Bistro the young and beautiful have flocked to the Venetian to see what color Paris Hilton's panties are on any given night.
Are the vibes lucky at Venetian?
Massive, huge ceilings, opulent floor, you hafta walk a ways to get to the casino from the strip. Slots are tight, minimums are higher than mid-level joints to the south (Harrahs, Flamingo, etc) and almost equivalent to Wynn Las Vegas. We find Wynn Las Vegas to be a much better gaming experience than the Venetian - as do the Venetian's customers. A larger percentage of the Venetian's profits come from non-gaming areas of the resort (dining, entertainment, shopping, rooms) than the gaming portion. The dealers are well trained, somewhat friendly, but not as great as the folks you'll find at Wynn Las Vegas next door. Don't even think about playing the slots here folks... they suck.
What casino games are offered at Venetian?
Lots of gaming options, mostly higher minimums though. Craps, BlackJack, Let It Ride, Caribbean Stud, Three Card Poker, Spanish 21, Casino War, PaiGow Poker, PaiGow Tiles, Baccarat, Roulette and the Big Six. They offer gaming instruction M-F... Craps 11am & 5pm, Roulette 12pm, BlackJack 12:15.
The Venetian opened a glamorous new 29 table poker room in April 2006 featuring an amazing array of plasma TVs for killing time between playable hands, smoke free, a high roller area, comfy chairs and easy access to food when you need a break. They offer discounted rooms to poker players who log a bunch of hours into the tables a day.
Does Venetian have casino comps?
The Venetian wants you to gamble. Poker players get a special rate for rooms provided they put in 8 hours at the tables per day, there are also poker lessons and bad beat jackpots. Venetian also has a neato little gaming guide pdf that you can download from their website.
