My favorite games have always been slots.  $1 and lower machines.

    You didn't have my choice up so I said slots.
    I only play Price is Right video slot!!

    This machine hits like crazy!! I have won over 500 bucks everytime playing it @ Vegas where I started from and in CT Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun.

    If you have this slot play it. It's a loose machine. There is only 2 kinds. Cliff Hanger and plinko just like the TV show.

    My pick would have bee Carib. Stud Poke....Love that game...specially progressive jackpot!!

    Good luck to everyone!!!

      Nice poll.

      I think if I won a big PB jackpot I'd still have to sometimes spend 15-20 hours at a stretch sitting at third base at a blackjack table now and again.  I find the game completely absorbing. 

      If a tornado came along and carried away the whole house, but left a horizontal piece of felt, a stack of chips, a tray and a dealer I'd still be sitting there hoping for a double down hand. 

      And if that self-same tornado just carried away the blackjack tables and took them off to heaven leaving everything else intact, I'd never set foot in a casino again.

      I like poker, too, but I like it among a group of friends in someone's kitchen.

        Video poker. Only game in the casino where a positive return can be expected if the proper pay table can be located and the cards are played correctly.

        Heads up poker. You against other players, most of them having no idea how to play or what the odds are and all of you against the casino's rake. But the stud games are dying out in favor of Hold 'Em.

            I practically made my living on video poker 10 - 12 years ago.  There was one machine that paid out slightly higher on a full house but the problem was it was always busy.  Drove to the mountain Indian casino many times in the wee hours of the morning to find that machine idle and rake in a house payment, lol.  Also, had it down for hitting royals all over the place. Oh the stories I could tell. . . fond memories.

            The key was playing the right machine at the right time which I had all kinds of help to determine. . . super natural!

              There is a nickel game called Stars and Stripes. Dern thing actually cost 2.50$ a pop if you play max bet. I sat and played it for five spins! Walked away from the machine with $300.00 . Only put in 20.00 . Other Slot games are: any that carry the bonus feature-I dream of Jeanie, Wheel of Fortune,Waynes World, and Texas Oil.  Vegas is still THE place to play the slots...I've yet to fair as well in NJ or Delaware fo pay outs. And this is playing off the same machines and same coin usage.

                  Of corse with a name like DoubleDown, my favorite should be obvious...

                   Blackjack, baby !!!

                  As far as slots, I like the multipliers like double diamonds and triple diamonds:

                  $5 dollar 2 coin slots as well as $1 dollar 2 coin slots.

                   

                  For fun I like the wheel of fortune slots too. They come in several denominations.

                  Hit an $8600 JP on a $1 dollar "12 times pay" machine down in Biloxi a couple of years ago...

                      Slots is the only game I play.  I did try roulette once and won some money but my game is slots. Love them.

                        My vote is for the Poker Room. I usually watch lots of Texas Hold 'Em Poker on TV. Also, I just like to watch the people playing all the games, but I have to cut down on gambling.

                          Slots are my favorite also. I go to Vegas once a year, My favorite is the nickel ones sometimes quarters. Used to go to Biloxi but it is not there any more....at least not like it was before the Hurricane.
