    As of 9/4/10 it was apparently closed for renovations.

    There was a "subscription only" article titled "Radisson casino operator to Occidental" posted on Amigoe.com on October 29.

    I hope they reopen by the end of Feb 2011.

    If not there are other casinos to choose from.

    Maybe they will have chips that actually have their name on them and not the old Allegro chips!! I will have to look out for that.
