    Casinos during the day

    I've found the casinos to be really quiet during the day, which kind of suprised me. My thought was that more people would want to get out of the heat occasionally. That said, I'm wondering if any of the casinos have tables open before 6:00?

    maybe the crystal downtown has some tables open during the day.
    if any of the casinos have tables open downtown, it'd be the crystal.

    Thanks Andrea. That would actually work out well. I get to go shopping while DH hits the casino. Then we can make a stop at Que Pasa. I'm really looking forward to this trip, it has been a long winter.

    in the days when i enjoyed downtown shopping my husband would go into the crystal and play on the slots.
    then as if by magic when i was done shopping i would find him sitting under the big clock chime tower, sitting there looking annoyed like i had kept him waiting.
    who's kidding whom? he loved the break from the sun to go play slots and drink free beer. hahahahahaha

    that's exactly what me & my husband did, Andrea. I'd shop, he'd play at the crystal and then when I got there, he was sitting outside like "where have you been?"...LOL...

    The Crystal has tables open all day. If a cruise ship is in you'll see alot of husbands playing while wife is shopping and also the workers from the ship.

    In addition, the Alhambra has lower table limits from 6:00PM to 8:00PM.

    ------ Hope. For us it is actually nice just sitting on the beach under a hut enjoying that great breeze and drinking a cold one now and then.
    It feels actually hotter and more humid in Maryland during July and August than ever in Aruba.

    There is no consistency, but I have seen some Seaport blackjack tables open as early as noon. Crystal Casino advertises that they have table games 24 hours a day, but that may be quite limited at times. For example, they do not have craps or roulette 24 hours a day and will have as little as 1-2 blackjack tables and 1 or 2 Caribbean Stud games going.
