Comments & Discussion:

Very impressed to see the Trop in so many best of categories.

does "best dice" refer to the actual game of craps (it's odds, dealer friendliness, atmosphere, etc) or the actual dice (color, feel, etc)?

@nullzero00 - It's the actual game.

No nominations for Circus Circus ? I'm shocked, I tell you, just shocked.

Congrats to all the nominees! I have already decided on some, but others I still need more time to think on. I'm sure the 2010 Trippies Awards Show will be worth watching.

Woot! Thanks for the nomination :)

Thanks for the two nominations, everyone!

@callahan,
agreed. But I wish I'd nominated Slots-A-Fun for Blackjack and Dice. Great odds/rules, low limits. Is there a "Guilty Pleasure" category?

its great to see the trop in so many positive categories. i look forward to voting soon!

Wow, this is the best selections of nominees I've seen so far. It's cool that the normal picks (Bellagio, Wynn) are there right next some new faces (Tropicana, Mirage).

Just one major gripe though... TripAdvisor for best community?!? Ugh.

Crazy...a few years ago, the Trop would have been in all the categories its in now, only under the "Worst" tab. Great to see how they've managed to turn things around. (and I'm sure its *ALL* because of their past trippie performance.)

Uh, the El Cortez has the best low limit blackjack rules on either the strip or downtown.

I was really hoping Circus Circus could win a nod for "best meat" or "most clowns" or something, so that it could win and once again enter the field of competition. So that the cycle could repeat itself.

While I fully expect the IP to get solidly trip-spanked in multiple categories, the one thing I find surprising is the nom for worst dining. Worst buffet, absolutely, but they have some real decent value restaurants up in that upstairs restaurant area.
