The casino turned away an amazing number of semi-whales. There was a
guy who blew $21,000 at craps and was refused a limo to N Y C
(90 miles away), and that was after they refused to comp him to dinner,
saying that the restaurants are unaffiliated with the casino.
I went in the other day and found that many of the dealers / pit critters
were actively trying hard to be friendly and inviting to low stakes players.
