Nice staff, good service

I heard many complaints about this casino but my experience has always been very positive. I find the staff very helpful, they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. I only ever played poker tournaments there, but I would certainly recommend the place.

No Poker and No one knows anything

The description states: "and there is live poker (cash games) starting 8PM everyday"
Not True
No Poker or tournaments!!!
And the staff of 5 employees at the chack in were all blank faced when I asked them where live poker games were held in Budapest. One said that he thought all were closed.
I asked about the poker romm at Duna Plaza and he went blank with a shrug of shoulders.
The other 4 employees kept their blank stares.
All knew that they were lying
I asked again, are you not allowed to say?
Again no reply.....
Very Rude
 
 
 

It is a complicated legal situation I believe

Hi Ken,
I'm sorry you had a bad experience with this casino. This website is by no means associated with them, but I know that the legality of live poker got a bit complicated there. I can't even follow myself all the changes that have been happening. I believe there are one or two legal poker rooms now, which are not casinos, just poker rooms. I'm not sure why Tropicana didn't have any poker going, maybe they are not allowed any more? I wouldn't be surprised if the staff was just ignorant rather than lying, but I'm not saying that was the case, they might have been lying too.
