“Barcelo Punta Cana Sky Casino”
Reviewed March 24, 2010

A nice casino although do not play the Bingo game. It is for high rollers and will easily suck a newbie in as soon as they walk in the door. Aim of the game is to get 100 points and you win the pot of what has been betted. Looks easy enough. First few withdrawls of the tumbling ping pong balls gets your hopes up as your point count climbs upwards of the 70-80 point range. Then the doubling of the bets begin and the real money has to start coming out. Eventually the bets after being doubled a couple times and the pot being doubled a couple times is 1200 and 52,000 respectively. It is around this point that your point count has climbed to the 95-99 range and that all elusive single digit point is just around the corner. Seemed easy enough at the beginning but that last point or two never comes around as your bets continue or you win a few color bingos to keep your hopes up.
Checking in with the tour operators, advice was given that this scenario has happened many times just with their minimal time spent at the resort.Many of the travellers having spent upwards of twenty or thirty thousand in order to try to get the pot. And these travellers were at the 99 point stage and only needed the one point to WIN. It never happened and eventually they ran out of money and could not continue in the game and had to stop then they go to their travel reps and complain about this situation.
This game is set up for the high rollers, ones that can continue to fork over the money to stay in the game. Sure someone might get lucky and win it every now and then, but that is very few and far between and usually only after spending 20-30 thousand or more in order to win the 52,000.00 pot.
If you are approached at the door about this game just politely say no thankyou and proceed to the Blackjack tables or Roulette or Slot machines. You need deep pockets for this game and the house seldom loses.
