I believe this is the best overall casino anywhere. I have frequented just about every casino in Las Vegas and Henderson (as well as Reno and Laughlin) and this casino has nicest atmosphere, in my opinion. Drink service is excellent. There is a wide array of machines with excellent payables throughout the casino. The service staff at the restaurants are very attentive, in my experience. This casino is very clean and upscale. This is one of the furthest casinos in Vegas from my home (local) but it is well worth the trip for the casino experience. I have not stayed in the hotel so I can not make a comment about that experience.
I have always enjoyed playing at ST until very recently. The comps have been cut on the FPDW measurably since January or February of this year(in half and no multipliers). The cocktail waitresses are excellent and I have always had fair success there with video poker until recently. When I say "recently" I mean from Sept. to now. In August I hit 13 royals there and a couple other places during a three week period. Unbelievable luck, for the most part, but I do know how to play at a close to perfect rate.Since then, nada. No royals although I have seen many hit (usually next to me). Deuces have dried up to nothing although I have seen many sets hit. It does make one a bit paranoid. I have also seen many players that used to play regularly stay away. Has any body else had a similar experience? I have had over 200 incidences where the last card dealt would have made a royal. I realize this is within the realm of slight probability but gee whiz, just not very likely at all. Bottom line, this provokes the question as to whether or not some players are actually playing with the same odds as others? Win too much and you are put on a "naughty list" and taken care of. Is that possible?
