    There are quite a few Indian Reservation casinos all over the state, with several around Tucson. The largest there is called Casino del Sol, recently expanded. www.casinodelsol.com.
    I've only been in the Phoenix area casinos, so I can't say what the Tucson casinos are like, but Casino del Sol is supposed to be the best.
  • For info. on casinos in any state, check out americancasinoguide.com.
  • Casino of the Sun and Desert Diamond Casino on Nogales Hwy.
  • sld007 - Do you happen to know the "rules", and do they have double deck?......Thanks......G.

    Thanks. I checked out the web site. It looks nice. They got any strange rules or anything?

    If other Arizona casinos are any indication, it will be either CSMs or 6 deck shoes or some of each, dealer hits on soft 17, double on anything, double after split, no resplitting aces. But I can't be absolutely sure since I haven't been down to Tucson to play there. When my son starts at Univ of Arizona in a year, I'll probably be there a few times. (Like Tucson won't be getting enough of my money by then.)
  • Thanks for the info, DD. I'm headed out right now.
  • Can't sayt I was overly impressed witih Casino Del Sol -- and not just because a pretty long winning streak came crashing down the earth. Lost \$200, playing my usual $10 table, with an unbelievable bad streak after getting up about $100 early.
    But that's not important, could happen anywhere.
    The place was impressive from the outside. But inside, I had been playing about 15-20 minutes when I realized that not only was it not free beer and alcohol, it was 100 percent alcohol-free. No beer at any price.
    The hard-core counters won't see this as a detriment, but I'm a recreational BS player who uses a simpl profression just so I can just go out and have a good time.
    They even charged for soft drinks and you couldn't get one without leaving the table -- no waitresses.
    It had the ambiance of a bowling alley with a snack bar in the back you had to visit to get even a coke..
    Even though they were kicking my butt, I will say that the dealers were unversally friendly, which I consider a plus win or lose.
    I didn't play them, buit I did notice that they had many $3 tables, which is something I haven't seen in years.
    Bottom line, as guy who enjoys playing BJ and isn't trying to make a living at it, I wouldn;t got back.
  • SH, what you describe sounds pretty much like what you might expect on the south side of Tucson. Sorry it didn't work out. Most of the Phoenix area casinos serve alcohol, and the soft drinks are free. (Bottled water, however, is $1. They want to discourage anything healthy like that.) Some of them have live entertainment theaters (usually for has-been performers like Air Supply or the Average White Band), and there are some good restaurants as well as snack bars.

Howdy, Stranger!
