New owners improve odds at Binion's

9 April 2008

LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- (PRESS RELEASE) – Players who walk into Binion's Gambling Hall & Hotel today will enjoy better odds than they would have five weeks ago. The new owner of the legendary casino, TLC Casino Enterprises, has changed the house rules for blackjack and craps. Blackjack now pays 3 to 2 on double deck and shoe games, and bettors can wager 10 times odds on craps with a $5.00 minimum bet. Limits also have been raised for most of the blackjack games.

"One of the very first things we wanted to do was offer more player-favorable action at Binion's," said Tim Lager, general manager. "We want to emphasize Binion's long-standing reputation as a true gamblers' casino."

In addition to the changes in odds and payouts, Lager has reorganized the casino floor to give players more options and better space in which to gamble. A new game, Blackjack Switch, in which each player plays two hands with the option of switching cards between the hands, has been added to the casino. And, several small pits were combined into a larger gaming pit with roulette, craps and 10 blackjack tables. The new pit is open longer hours than previously and, after repositioning several slot machines and a temporary stage, there is comfortable space for the players, dealers and cocktail servers to interact.

"These changes make Binion's more competitive with other Las Vegas casinos," said Lager. "The goal is to provide the best possible gambling experience for all of our guests. That's what Binion's is all about."

With the new rules on craps, Binion's is one of a handful of Las Vegas casinos to offer 10 times odds.
