Do you know where to look? So when these were introduced, prices were a little…on the high side. Yea. Well now, you should land these around 3$ a deck. Cheaper if you buy in bulk. I won’t say where though,,,since I still need to buy some more.

Okay lets see here…It says Bee’s Diamond Back Club Special. With Cambric Finish. But why are Wynns special. Because because…it’s a solid paint back design. Single color casino logo. But. I would have to say/agree that this is not the same as all other Bees. Its got a more…slick/waxy/crisp feel to it rather than typical say…stocky. Nonetheless it is durable. But the finish is still odd. No super perfect fans new from box. Also, it eats sweat and clumps quickly too. But this makes spreads a little better. See pictures below for an idea.

Awesome. Solid. Cinnamon/crimson red. Like the casino red. Not bright red. Well. Only because I care about the reds only. Blue/violet..whatever…heh.

Diagonal card insertion: Good. Check.
Culling portion of the move. Not so good. Moves additional cards in the spread due to the finish. Scary. Not entirely avoidable. Darn.

-So. Wynn casino. I was holding off on posting on these for awhile. Until I got some jumbo indexes. Because I hear they’re different. As for brown wynns. I sold most of mine off on eBay. They’re okay. Probably get into those tomorrow. Wynn. It’s Bee stock. Good old bee. I’m heavily leaning towards using Bee decks for whatever magic I may or may not be doing in the upcoming year(school year). Maybe I should focus on academics. Haha. Shrugs. Good deck. Be aware that shelf life is considerably shorter if you’re focusing on cleanliness. Though its more durable than say a bicycle deck, bicycle is much more expendable. Wynn seems to be the type of card you’d use for say,,,a more reserved setting perhaps. Or for XCM and cardistry and that stuff. Yea can’t forget about that. The clumping factor of these cards will boost that quite well. I’d go for DnD’s vertigo hackysack with these. Fun . Stuff .

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.

Sam's Town : Notice the extra pips.

Nothing bad here. Nothing exceptional either.

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.
