O’Sheas Reopens in the Linq

DSCF2541After a 20 month hiatus, O’Sheas reopened behind its former location in a development now known as the Linq.  O’Sheas is connected to the south wall of the Quad and across from the north entrance of Flamingo.

The first impression of O’Sheas is that it looks nothing like its predecessor.  The dated look of the former casino has been replaced with modern furnishings. This matches the recent remodel next door at the Quad, formerly Imperial Palace.

There are no restaurants or slot machines.  The entire casino is about the size of a large tavern.

There are 11 table games.  Six of the tables are blackjack.  All of these 8-deck games pay 6-5 on a natural blackjack.  This puts O’Sheas in the running for the worst place in Las Vegas to play blackjack.

Other table games include Three Card Poker, Mississippi Stud, Texas Hold’em Bonus, craps and double-zero roulette.  The minimum bet at all tables was $5 during our visit.

The Caesars Entertainment Six-Card Bonus is available at the Three Card Poker table.  This pays $1 million on a six-card royal flush when combining the hands of the player and dealer.  This wager has a house edge of 18 percent, according to Wizard of Odds.

The craps game offers an unfriendly payout on the field.  Most casinos pay triple on the field when a 12 is called.  O’Sheas does not.  A 12 only pays two times, doubling the house advantage of the wager.

There are two bars inside O’Sheas.  One bar hosts the four beer pong tables and does not have gaming.  The main bar offers video poker with payouts common among Caesars Entertainment bar machines, including 7/5 Jacks or Better and 6/5 Bonus Poker.   Players looking for more variety (and better payouts) will need to walk over to the Quad or across the courtyard to Flamingo.  There is also a bar in the courtyard in front of the building.

There is bad news for poker players.  O’Sheas was once home to some of the best low limit poker games in Las Vegas.  The cash game tables were just a few steps away from the Las Vegas Strip sidewalk.  The new O’Sheas does not spread poker.

O’Sheas was once known for its cheap drinks.  That tradition continues with $3 12 oz. draft beers and $5 well shots.

The staff welcomed us outside the casino and immediately upon entering.  The bartender tried to strike up a conversation with me when I was checking out the video poker pay tables.  Patrons should enjoy this friendly atmosphere, a noticeable change from the previous location.

O’Sheas is now little more than a standard tavern with table games.  The brand is still strong among patrons and that should help make it a draw among tourists that are looking for a place more like a locals’ tavern and less like a casino.
