M Resort – Las Vegas’ Newest Shining Star

There has been a lot of hoopla over the opening of M Resort, located at the south end of the Las Vegas strip.  Vegas Rex too a walk through the casino on opening night.

My first impression from afar is that I like the new modern design of M Resort.  To no surprise there were a TON of people walking around for opening night.  With that being said, I didn’t see many gambling.

Hunter from Rate Vegas reported back that the Video Poker pay tables he found were 8/6.  For a detailed account of his visit head over to Two Way Hard Three.

***UPDATE: Most JoB machines seem to be 8/6 in all denominations.  Blackjack pays 6:5 except in the salon where it pays 3:2.  Salon table minimums are $50.  Goodbye M Resort.  I hardly knew yee.

  • vegasrex’s review should be mandatory reading. I don’t want to steal his thunder, but it should be noted here that the blackjack pays 6:5 for a natural, even at the $25 tables.

    I find this doubly odd now that I hear the JoB is 8/6. I’m assuming you meant to say JoB when you said ‘video poker’, am I right?

  • JMP Good eye. Yes, I meant JoB. I’ll update that. Sometimes the fingers don’t type what the mind tells them to. 🙂

    6:5 payout for Blackjack is ridiculous. 6:5 Blackjack payouts are usually single deck. I’ll look into that and report back what I find out.

  • JMP – Hunter from Rate Vegas says he doesn’t know if *all* of the tables were 6:5, but it was quite a bit at least. He is pretty accurate and balanced with his reports.

    That’s crazy. Who would play Blackjack there?

  • starting to seem par for the course with respect to Strip casinos: if a place has decent blackjack, the VP is lousy and vice versa. Seems to be changing up on the north part of the Strip. I’m not a Vegas expert by any means, but I generally know that MGM properties are good for 21, but not VP (at least at lower denominations) and HET, for all the bashing for it’s poor 21, usually has 8/5 JoB around. At least they did a couple years ago.
