New slot area at Tropicana
As part of its latest $40 million renovation, Tropicana has opened a new 157-machine High Limit Slots area.
Among its amenities are a concierge service, private restrooms and a cashier.
The new slot area replaces the Crystal Room — long and narrow, a little dark, and not very conducive to a high-level customer experience.
