Here are some of the section names where Chinese card games are located in Atlantic City's casinos:
• Caesars: "Palace East"
• Hilton Atlantic City: "Treasure Palace"
• Showboat: "The Asian Pit" (hey, at least the name is descriptive!)
• Tropicana: "The Jade Palace"
Borgata, Bally's, Harrah's, Resorts, Trump Marina, Trump Plaza and the Trump Taj Mahal all scatter Asian table games throughout their casino floors. Pai gow can be found at all of Atlantic City's casinos and most offer sic bo as well. Given the voracious appetite many Chinese expats have for casino weekends--case in point: Foxwoods' success with the niche market--Macao- and Hong Kong-style games have picked up quickly here.
From what we've seen, American variant pai gow poker fills the most tables, followed by original pai gow and sic bo.
