    I personally like the Stratisphere when I was in Vegas. Wrong spelling..but it's all the way at the bottom of the strip.

    Aladin was my other one..but, I believe I heard they closed it down or change the name of it.

    In Atlantic City...anything that is the same as vegas is good. Not really picky about it. I do have a theory of going to the middle class style casino's. The really rich ones I figure will give crappy payouts to people that don't play big...that's why they are the expensive ones.

    The poor casino's I avoid...yet some people tell me they have a lot of luck at the old strip in Vegas.

    I like going with the middle size casinos. Like Harrahs or the ones that are popular but not majorly popular.

    I also use my gut feeling...when in Vegas and Atlantic since there is so many to choose from.

    PP

     P.S. I also look for highier payouts for the same machines/games. They vary from casio to casio & during the month the tables change ...specially on the wkends.

    I don't go in beginning of month nor the end. The middle of the month is the best time....This way the casino has paid all there bills first..LOL

        I prefer anything *off* the beaten path. In Vegas - some of the local clubs, such as The Cannery actually pay out well.

        In Atlantic City..do your homework. If Trumps stock is plummeting chances are the machines are being tightened up. (He's gotta make a profit somehow).  Seek casinos that are clean, safe, and have a good turn around of players. Harrahs' is constantly trying to re-invent itself so until it gets its act together I shy away from that place. The Borgata ( Marina area) Has some nice slot tournements .

        In Vegas-The Alladin is still there. I struck it big at New York New York. The Bellagio and Venetian are definitely not for the quarter players. They want the clientel to walk in with no less then a grand.

        If I had to promote one city or area- it would be Vegas. More choices, more alternative slots and better payouts.

          Try to frequent the same casinos the locals do. In Las Vegas, it's the casinos off the Strip - Sam's Town and Arizona Charlie's are two that come to mind. Downtown, El Cortez, Fitzgerald's and Imperial Palace are supposed to be generous.

          In Laughlin, the Ramada Express has been good to me, but the locals go to the Avi, a Native American casino a couple of miles south of the center of town.

          I stay away from Harrah's in almost any market, as their payout percentages seem to be a few points lower than their competition.

              (I lived in Vegas for 16 years)

               The Station casinos are popular with the locals, the Rio, and Arizona Charlie's. The Cal caters to the Hawaiin trade and is a lot of fun, Sam's Town, too.

              I broke in at the El Cortez, it's definitley "Glitter Gulch".

               Where the Mirage is now used to be the joint in town, the Castaways. The Hole In The Wall sports book was one of the first in Vegas. <sniff>
