Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino

I only really had one proper session here. For one reason: Rock n Roll!!!

KISS and Mötley Crüe played here on 11th August. But not just that. Also Lostprophets, All American Rejects and the awesome Steel Panther. So the house was full of rockers! Who would I be if I was missing on this day?

I dolled up in a sexy black dress and heels and looked forward to a day at the poker tables with tattooed, pierced and leather-wearing men while finishing the night by watching Steel Panther (as almost every time I am in Vegas).

Unfortunately things didn’t go the way I had hoped they would. In German you would say “Erstens kommt es anders und zweitens als man denkt!”…but this is almost impossible to translate… :wink: " class="wp-smiley" src="" />

First of all there were almost no rockers at all at the poker tables. Am I the only rock fan who also loves poker? Naaaa….can’t be.
I watched the KISS fans in their freaky outfits walk by and to the gig. Then it was quiet for a while. After a couple of hours the freaky rock fans flooded back in to the casino and a couple of them got stuck in the poker room. It happened exactly what we were waiting for. The guys were drunk, completely psyched from the concert and played bad. Once again I just got really really unlucky against them and hadn’t I cashed in the donkament earlier I would have been really depressed.

It didn’t help my mood either that nobody wanted to go with me to see Steel Panther.

All in all this poker room is a good place to play. The ceilings are high, the colours are light, a nice atmosphere with many loaded tourists.

Here is the result of my hours at Mandalay Bay:

  • Poker Room Quality (0-10): 7 – no WiFi, dealers are – despite there age-proven experience – not very good
  • Comps: $1/hour (…it uses the very modern system of filing cards!)
  • Promos: High Hand Boni
  • Player’s Card: MLife
  • Hours Cash Game:  09:05 (2 losing sessions)
  • Profit Cash Game: -$316
  • Hours Tournament: 1:24
  • Profit Tournament: $200
  • Total Profit: -$116

So there we go. The Mandalay Bay is the last casino that I had visited going South. I almost went to South Point, but unfortunately we drove by by accident. Well, there is always a “next time”.

The next and last part of this summary blog will be the overall summary of the trip and I will publish it tomorrow!
