Quieter forum but hope to get replies (please) Hard Rock

Hubby and I are flying in for a quick 2 night/3 day stay at the Hard Rock over Valentines weekend. This is all casino/entertainment related questions:

Before I ask, I have been to the Hard Rock in Seminole, FL 4 times since last year. LOVE that place, the music, bands, slots and mega tables.

I realize this is a smaller casino sq ft/number of machines and tables but can anyone who has gone list your favorite machines that are either interactive or have bonus rounds/fun to play. The looser the better ha. I do love Wizard of Oz, Monopoly, Tarzan, Ghostbusters. Wanting to try a few new ones with recommendations.

Blackjack tables- ahhh. Any particular table/dealer/pit bosses that names come to mind you would recommend playing at? Looking for $5-$10 tables as I start there then increase. Do the tables have 'dealer match' spots for extra payouts?

Pit bosses generous with comps? I have found all you have to do is ask.

The bands that play on weekends, is it (I can't visualize this hotel since all I know is the other) in the front lobby bar area or off near the center bar? Dancing?

We will also be bouncing back and forth to the Beau to hopefully get in their system as well for comps, free play or future invites.

Thanks in advance!!

Of the two places, I'd rely upon the Beau to be the better opportunity.

As for your questions: Generous? Hmmm? Not that I've ever seen.

All the pits are run pretty tight.

Dancing? You bet. Could be a "Party Hardy" holiday.

Otherwise >> Fun is what you make of it. You got your honey.

Good Luck and Enjoy.

Thanks for the reply! We will have fun indeed. Which hotel do (if you play cards) you prefer blackjack at and curious why? Those days are gonna fly by so trying to make the most of our trip.

Bands on weekends at HR where do they set up/play?

Craps .. BUT .. Still would prefer the Beau for BJ. Why? Finding Beau more to the Vegas experience. Drinks seem to come around and the jerks don't..

My time w/HR: Is it can get mostly loud in Evenings.. If you're hoping to concentrate play cards there in the afternoon. If you're looking for the party, then by all means HR. They both have music venue. HR music is right off casino floor. thus the noise. . check hardrockbiloxi.com that site will give you more music info when you get close to your date.

Ditto w/ : beaurivage.com .. The deal there is: Beau may have big name acts in the theatre. Could add something to your holiday. Maybe not.

PS>>> Very Good dining options at Beau. ** Nice Valentine dinner treat would be Mary Mahoney across from HR .. check marymahoneys.com

Anywhere, Anyway >> Have Fun & Good Luck

Awesome feedback!! Thx

I've never played craps but my friends do and it has the best odds over the house. My friend explained the basics to me. I like to play BJ early morning and evenings. Probably stay over at the HR evenings because of the music too. I know Lynyrd Skynyrd is playing both Fri and Sat night the weekend we are there but not going. Already seen them 3 times over the years when a few original band members were still alive.

I've played at the Hard Rock Seminole and I think you will find the Hard Rock Biloxi a much different place. First this is not an Indian casino.. drinks are free to gamblers. Also the players clubs are not affliated so get a casino card to enjoy comps.. Newbies usually get some incentive for joining. If you go on the hard Rock website you can see what live entertainment is preforming during the time you are visiting.. The Hard Rock Biloxi EXCELLS in live entainment usually having top tier band playing Friday and Saturday night.. I beleive that you said 2/14 are your dates during that time Seven dust and Lynard Skynard are playing at the Hard Rock. I find the Beau Rivage more catering to a wealthier crowd, and the Hard Rock a younger demographic,,,I play at both,,,and as they are within easy walking distance of each other you should check them both out.

Ssful - my apologies, meant to to reply when you posted. Thank you. I actually receive mega freebies (concert tix, giveaways and invite to slot tournament and so on) however I'm looking forward to the trip and definitely plan on playing at both. Free drinks - yes! The last time I was at the HR in Seminole they had a short time FREE drinks while playing. However If I wanted my Grey Goose BM, it was not included. I figured that much. Can't wait!!

Ps as soon as we arrive and check in, first thing to the player club to get our cards. I always put my card in for time at the Blackjack tables too, for ratings and dining comps as well.
