Boomtown's poker table on a Tuesday night at 7pm

Atmosphere

A moderately quiet, somewhat laidback casino focused more on the slots than the table games, Boomtown has exactly one table game pit which rarely has more than a couple of blackjack tables going, and the Three-Card Poker table as well. The roulette wheel occasionally gets a few spins, and the craps team often looks bored while they wait for a gambler to show up. The lone poker table is nestled in this table crowd, incongruously low so that seated players can see their cards.

Tables and Chairs: 10-seat table with crisp rarely-used green felt and shiny black vinyl armrests. Silde-in cup holders. Fixed-leg standard metal-frame chairs.

Parking: Hundreds of spaces in the open-air parking lot on the east side.

Smoking: Smoking appears to be allowed.

Service and Comps

Occasional standard casino cocktail service.
