Bee Casino Sam’s Town

Name: Bee Casino ‘Sam’s Town’
Date: 6.11.2009

Cost: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
It’s a used yet uncancelled deck from a Las Vegas Casino. Well, that probably means I got it off of eBay. 5$ for this one with shipping. I like it.

A little difficult to come across this exact casino. As for the same brand…. Bee cambric finish…on uncancelled casino decks….that’s a little difficult too, if you’re going for older stock of cards.

Sam's Town : No Bee Ace here, you get a Boyd Ace instead. Solid.

It’s Bee’s cambric finish. The good one. I’d imagine these were awesome at one point, but age kinda killed it for this deck. However, all the good qualities are there I guess. Good snap. Holds well. More durable than a bicycle deck. Fans wells. White borders? How about no borders but its white. Makes for (un)interesting fans and such.

Nothing bad here. Nothing exceptional either.

Back Design: ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ○ ○ ○

It’s no background, with the casino logo twice. Excellent. Simplicity is always a plus here. But then, there’s no borders. Might be confusing if you have selective amnesia like I do. What. Nothing…

Uhm. Boring. Hm. If you like blank fans and spreads like I do. Then this is indeed a good deck. Assuming you use the back. Because of the extra large “border”. Yup. As for the stock. I had to also revive this deck using fanning powder and now its awesome. Like some of the other decks.

-Sam’s Town. I used  to go there with my family when I lived in Las Vegas. What. I lived in Vegas…? Yea…that explains a lot. Sort of. This deck has some abnormalities. Aside from the usual ‘casino’ red. And the indifferent back design. It’s a gambling hall. The back design ,,,it says Gambling Hall! Like the indices on the 10 through K and Aces. As for the spot cards, theyre indented towards the center a bit much too. Check out those spreads. Scary. If I could travel back in time and make custom cards for myself, I’d use this stock. Maybe. Theres a few others I like more. But we haven’t got to them yet.
