Main Street Station reopened this morning at about six a.m. This brings the total number of casinos in downtown Las Vegas to 12. This is the first time that number has exceeded 11 since the Las Vegas Club closed in 2015.
The facility has undergone various alterations since it was last launched in March of 2020. The most noticeable difference between the two is the table game pit. More than fifty percent of the games are in short supply.
The number of live table games available at Main Street Station has been reduced to eight. The remaining half of the gaming space was dedicated to video blackjack with a 6:5 payoff for $1 and double-zero roulette with a 0.50 minimum stake. At the present, this is the only roulette variant available at Main Street Station.
Craps, 6:5 six-deck blackjack, 3:2 double deck blackjack, Three Card Poker, Let it Ride, and Fortune is some of the games available. Pai Gow Poker is one of the table games that are still available in the pit. The field bet continues to pay quadruple on 12, and craps retain its original odds of 20 to 1. The rule that prevents doubling down after splitting remains in place in blackjack. A dealer with a queen high automatically pushes in Fortune Pai Gow Poker, a no-commission version of the game. Players are not permitted to the bank.
The stakes at Main Street Station’s tables
- Double deck blackjack 3:2: $10 to $500 (2 tables)
- Blackjack 6:5 with six decks: $10-$500
- Craps action ranging from $10 to $1,000. (2 tables)
- Fortune Pai Gow Poker stakes range from $15 to $500.
- Allow it to Ride: $10 to $50
- A hand of Three Card Poker can cost anything from $10 to $100.
Our most current analysis of the Main Street Station was conducted in December 2019. During that time, we counted a total of 19 active table games. The 11 table games that are missing are double-deck blackjack (7), double-zero roulette (2), craps, and Super Fun 21.
Main Street Station’s coin machines have been removed
Main Street Station removed all coin games from its floor when Fremont reopened after being shuttered due to the epidemic. Fremont followed suit. It was the last place in Las Vegas where you could play the video poker game Pay the Aces No Faces. The state of California still had a couple of Treasure Chest Poker machines, as well as a couple of dozen other coin games, at the time of the most recent check.
Digital conversion of the Score with Four games has been completed
Before the pandemic, slot attendants used to give video poker players who made a natural four different kinds of scratch cards worth a few dollars each when they turned in their winning hand. This practice was discontinued after the pandemic. At this point, everything is completed using digital means.
When a player gets four of a kind, they are presented with a board that has 12 boxes on it. Each box can contain one of four different prizes. This information is displayed on the touchpad that is located in the player’s club. When the player has found three matching amounts of the same value, the bonus round will come to an end, and they will be awarded the value at that point. Players need to use a BConnected card and wager five coins to be eligible for the competition.
These games are now subject to additional regulations. Some machines are not eligible. It would appear that these prohibited personal computers have a game installed on them that has a return rate of 99 percent or higher. A disclaimer is shown on computers that are not participating in the promotion, while a banner is displayed on top of the computers that are participating in the promotion. As of the time, this article was written, it has been asserted that the bonus for getting four of a kind is still available on the bar machines.
The regulations state that a card must be “valid on DEALT HAND,” but I’m not entirely sure what this phrase means or how it should be interpreted. It’s possible that a player needs to be dealt quads to be qualified for a bonus round, but I think it’s more likely that if you’re playing a game with multiple hands, only the hand with the lowest value counts for qualification. It’s possible that a player needs to be dealt quads to be qualified for a bonus round. This is analogous to how gaming taverns deal with the card of the day.
It seems that the previous benchmark for video poker has been maintained
Players have reported that the majority of the games that are detailed in the following paragraph were removed from the casino approximately one week after Main Street Station was opened to the public. We haven’t had the opportunity to verify this information at this time. Some of the information in this section may be wrong. We were unable to access the site at this time to gather any further information from there.
The standard of the video poker games is, as far as I can tell, the same as it was before the establishment where they were located closed their doors. The casino continues to provide players with the opportunity to play Jacks or Better 9/6 and Double Bonus Poker 9/7.
One dollar is the maximum bet that can be placed on any of the 10/7 Double Bonus Poker machines. These automated teller machines are located in the area between the bar and the door to the valet parking. The remaining gaming area still offers the standard selection of 99 percent of games, including 16/10 Deuces Wild, 9/6 Jacks, 8/5 Bonus, 9/7 Double Bonus, and 9/6 Double Double Bonus, with some of these games also being offered on multi-hand machines.
The selection of available foods at Main Street Station has been modified
Both of the Main Street Station’s restaurants are only open during specific times of the day. The Triple 7 Restaurant and Microbrewery is open from 5 p.m. until midnight, Thursday through Monday. Every week, the establishment is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays. The Garden Court Buffet offers a daily brunch service from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM for a price of $18.99 per person. On Fridays and Saturdays, between the hours of 4 and 9 in the evening, the restaurant is only open for dinner. It is $25.99.
