Hooters has struggled since it opened, which either explains or is a direct result of its tight casino (perhaps both). The blackjack has terrible rules: dealer hits soft 17, you can only double on 10 and 11, and all games pay 6:5 for naturals. Most tables have $10 or $25 minimums and some, mostly the ones in the Hooters Girls Fun Pit, are dealt by you know who. Beware of some of the video-poker schedules: they look typical, but some of the payouts are short. Craps isn’t bad, with 3–5x odds and a field 12 paying triple. The players club returns a decent 1% for slot play and 0.5% for video poker, but only in comps: there’s no cashback.
Games: Blackjack ($10–$2,000); craps (3x, 4x, 5x; from $10); keno; Let it Ride; pai gow poker; poker (3 tables); roulette (double zero); three-card poker.
