Bond is still the same bar near the Strip with DJs and loud music (GOML), but now they offer video poker with compíd drinks. Since they serve good quality spirits (Belvedere for the vodka drinkers) this is a nice option for video poker players to sit and relax for a while. The gaming doesnít stop here. The most drastic change to the area is the removal of the lounge area and the addition of a table gaming pit with all-female dealers exposing lots of cleavage. There is a little platform for go-go dancers to shake their thang.
The Blackjack is low limits ($10 or $15) and pays 6:5 for blackjack like most other low limits games on the Vegas Strip. There is also Roulette and War, but no Craps (boo). The Bond gaming area isnít always open, but itís almost always crowded just after dealers arrive. Bond really is a gateway to drawing gamblers into the Cosmo. The 16 LED gaming tables are striking and easy on the eyes.
The transformation of Bond is a good use of the space and easily accessible from the Strip. If you want the laid-back, fancy Cosmo experience, head inside to the original casino areas. If you want to party like youíre in a souped up Planet Hollywood, you can play 10 seconds from the Vegas Strip at the new Bond gaming area.
