Professional ratings
Review scores

The initial Billboard magazine review from February 1968 wrote that "Brubeck is tagged in a live workout...and he comes out ahead all the way. His pianistics are as sharp as ever and so are his efficient aides...".[2] The album was reviewed by Scott Yanow at Allmusic who wrote that "...this LP features eight songs built around the theme of gambling towns such as "Ace in the Hole," "Chicago" and the title cut. The music is certainly upbeat but the out-of-tune piano and crowd noises (this date was recorded live in Las Vegas) are a bit distracting. It's strictly for Brubeck completists."[1]
