Jackpots and Promotions
Standard monte carlo jackpots, but they are different for different games.
Once one of the cooler (old-timey Western vibe) poker rooms in the area, Sam's Town remodeled it in 2008 and now it's a plain, nondescript poker nook at the far end of the casino. The poker room is nicely removed from the rest of the casino and doesn't get much smoke drift or noise pollution, despite not being a separate room anymore. Right next to the poker room is the non-smoking slots area, as well as the Keno lounge. It's also very conveniently located with respect to the Parking Garage (park in Parking Garage 1 to get closest).
Neighborhood: On the busy Boulder Highway, Sam's Town is a sprawling complex and mini-city of its own, with movie theaters and bowling alleys.
Parking: Plenty of parking in two vast parking garage structures as well as outdoor flat lots.
Tables and Chairs: Standard Vegas 10-player tables have green felt and green vinyl armrests with inset cupholders. Chairs are nicely-padded office-style chairs that are wheeled and swivel.
Smoking: Not allowed in the room, and no significant drift from the rest of the casino occurs.
Service and Comps
Occasional, standard casino cocktail service.
