Although this so called "casino" is nothing fancy like Vegas casinos, it still offers a decent atmosphere and the staff is nice. The patrons aren't so friendly, lots of angry people and have absolutely no manners. If you're a Vegas or Atlantic City goer, don't expect a happy, fun crowd.
No for the games. I will basically only play Craps simply because it's my favorite table game, but at Empire City...what table?! It's a stupid automated system where the dice/table is extremely rigged to make sure you never get ahead. We all know that the house has the advantage, but this place is ridiculous. If you watch the large dice roll in the center, you can tell that something is literally pulling/weighing them down because they don't land like normal dice or even large play dice.
The 8 times I have been there, 7 times I have lost. Whenever I play at a real table or even on my ipad, I come out ahead more so than I do at Empire City. I consider myself to be smart at betting on the options for Craps, but there is something very fishy how this wannabe casino plays the public. For example, I find it very strange that any established point numbers numbers will have about 3-4 (at most) long lasting rolls before it hits either the point number or a seven and after these 3-4 rolls it will land on a 7 for the next 10-15 times after a point number has been established. This strange roll of events happens continuously here, not continually.
This is what I have recorded.
6,8 ,8, 4, 10, 10, 10, 2, 10, 8, 6
9, 6, 9
9, 5, 5, 2, 7
Doesn't this look odd to you? It gets worse.
