I/we go to the casinos sometimes but can be months or years between trips. It's a long ride and I seem to do better on the regular Numbers and it's easier to systemize that. My favorite 2 are Tropicana and CAESAR'S. I went to CAESAR'S to look for the slot machine called "Cowboy Jack" that supposedly Mr. Whittaker himself invented, but no one there seemed to know anything about it. (One of the staff believed it was "behind that black wall over there where they got it closed for construction.") I have something of a system where I can make a slight profit over time but if you looked at it hourly it would be below minimum wage, but it's still nice to have a handful of winnings to take back to the Trop and eat there. The food in Trop is pretty good but CAESAR'S it's kind of expensive. If you want to test you strategy at home there were some Bally Games softwares that emulated some of the actual casino machines. I don't play table games.

    Where do you go? What is your favorite casino? Any luck? I love reading "Casino Player" magazine about all the casinos around the country. Just curious to hear which ones you folks find the "loosest" casinos compared to how they rate them.

    Thanks! 

    My wife & I are avid video poker players.  Try Tunica, MS.  The Mississippi Gaming Commission is not as good as the Navada one, but we've won each time we've gone to Tunica.  Biloxi has also been good to us, but that was before Katrina.  Don't know what it's like since then.  A BIG NO-NO--- Do NOT try your luck at Harrah's Cherokee Casino.  We have been there many, many, times and those guys play only by their rules (which means you are not likely to win - be it slots, blackjack or video poker).

    Reno is good.  Just don't go on Tuesdays!

        Hi LckyLary!

        Are you referring to Caesar's in Tahoe? Is that the only one or are there others? How about the Trop? Where is that? Which are your favorite slots? 

        I have a few of those Bally games softwares. Some of them are pretty fun and very close to the actual games. Of course you win more on the software then in real life,haha!

          Hi Mike!

          I hear ya,I love video poker also. Been practicing with Bob Dancer's WinPoker software,it is awesome! Do you have it? It really teaches you which plays to make and corrects you when you're wrong. Definitely recommend it for anyone into video poker,whether you're a novice or pro.

           

          Love Reno, but I was wondering what's up with Tuesdays?? Smile

            I love casinos.  I only play slots and I do well on the $1 slots.  I think I have been to most casino's in AC and a few in Las Vegas.  The last one I visited was the dog race (Tri- State) in WV.  I hit three jackpots there last year.  $2.400, 1,600 and 1,350.  I hit one in AC at Caesar of $1,350.  I have not been at all this year and just told my daughter that  I was have casino withdrawals. LOL  I went to the one in Ashville NC when they first open but did not like it.  I love to go to tunica and I think that is my favorite.  It's a good thing I don't live in a city that has a casino, I would be like the people on the street with a sign that said "I'll work for slot money"  LOL

              I'm like you,it's been awhile since I've been and I sure miss it! Tunica sounds like the place to go,it's been mentioned here a couple of times.

              I thought the same thing that when they built an Indian casino here about 20 minutes from me that I would be going all the time and have to "work for slot money",(good one,wpb!LOL) but that hasn't been the case. Turns out that casino is so tight that I have never won a thing there and vowed never to visit again!

                I went to the new Twin River Casino in R.I. It was Lincoln Park before. I did win just over 38,000 nickels on a game called American something, the full names eludes me but it's the one with the stars. 

                3 consecutive stars triggers a 10 free spin bonus round and if you keep getting stars it fills them in at the top. If you fill them all in before the 10 free spins is up you reretrigger the free spin bonus round and increase the multiplier as well.

                        The time to gamble is when everything else is going right.

                          Hey slotplayer, that's good common sense; generally when things are going right, it's one indication that they are in a positive cycle like catching a good wave (petrhaps including gambling).

                          "The sad truth is that many players view the casino as an adult theme park, with their gambling stake being the price they pay to be taken for a ride."

                            Went to Biloxi back in April and did not fare well overall...

                             

                            Went on the Emerald Princess casino boat out of Brunswick GA recently and

                            hit a .25 10 x pay machine for 15,000 quarters ( $3750.00 )

                             

                             

                            It's all good in the hood !!!
