What casino is your favorite?

I am sure it has allready been asked, and if so Mod's/Admin's please move this, thanks. But what casino do you guys like the most the least? Which casino do you feel you are luckiest at?

I see no need to suggest deletion. Posters can post favorites, but their reasons might be different.

My favorite casino is Resorts. Because it's smaller, it's connected indoors to Taj & Showboat. The drink service at slots is swift and the employees seem to smile a lot more than the other casinos. It's close to Central Pier Arcade & the Irish Pub, but unsure if any of these reasons would be a reason for you to visit Resorts

To be honest I haven't been lucky anywhere. Lately though I've been gambling at the Hilton because their cash back offers have easily been twice what I've been offered at other places. The down side is their size and fewer slot choices and their buffet is okay but not near the best.

I like Tropicana the best because of "The Quarter" and its location on the boardwalk, I also like the Rumba Lounge. I feel I am luckiest at Showboat -- I got my very first royal (ever at any casino) in many years of playing there this past Monday.

We are like most. We started going to Tropicana about 15 years ago,became acquainted with the personnel there,have been treated right and have stayed there. I think most start and stay with the same casino, unless some bad experience or rude employee causes them to change. Only once in all the years have we ever considered changing and that was due to a rude employee, however we got over the incident and have kept Trop as our main hotel although we have also staed at Borgata, Hilton,Showboat,and Caesars. We have at one time or another been to every casino except Resorts. I like the BJ at the Trop and have searched out the 9/6 VP machines there. DW has her favorite slots. We both like the many dining choices and the comp structure. Only wish they would bring back the four deck shoes.

I have 2 favorites - the first is Resorts - I just like the gaming floor - its small enough to walk all over to play favorite machines - I also think their drinks are stronger than other places - and you can always get service. The 2nd casino that is my favorite is Borgata - I do think their slots are looser... and they have a really good selection of machines... they have a good atmosphere - and I think they have a wonderful buffet!

Showboat all the way the casino floor is so much brighter and seems cleaner to me I just get a happy vibe from that place.

Second would be Tropicana followed closely by the Taj.

At the bottom would be Bally's (not WWW) & Resorts in that order both those places are very ugly & the bar at Resorts (at least the one I was at toward the back of the casino) doesn't have any TV's for watching sports, if they do they wern't on when I was there along with crazy drink prices for such a dive. I hold a bitter place in my heart for Resorts mainly due to a bad experience I had with a dealer there.

My fave is definately Caesars. I just feel most comfortable there. they have a good selection of slots and The staff know me and are always accomodating. Plus, I really like their spa. Just wish they had better food; the buffet is pitiful and cafe roma, slow and unpredictable.

I have to agree with mikelindaTimonium and say the TROP. I've been going there since I was sneaking in at 18. My wife and I love the Quarter(Godiva, Blue Mercury Spa) and all the resturants(FIN, P F Changs). We're spoiled because almost every movie we see is at the IMAX there and when we want to see a movie back home its like watching it on a 10 inch TV screen. Our host there is great and is always suprising us with free meals and has never failed to get us a free room when we need it. The comps are great and always cover all our non-gambling related expenses while we are there and everytime we start the trip off with 300-400 in slot play from the weekly bonuses or cash back from the last trip. They have slot and VP tourneys every week as well as the occassional drawing and giveaways. They have all the slot machines we like and its nice to be able to sit side-by-side and play 9/6 JoB. The drinks are plentiful and my wife(And I when I'm not downing the mixed drinks or Mich Ultras) enjoys the hot chocolates. Now if only they would give out a couple extra RF's on the JoB, we'd be totally happy.

Kudos to you, JMK! Congratulations! I am still seeking a Royal, but my gambling habits are next to nothing for being a frequent AC visitor

BTW, I also like Resorts because it's old and has great architecture[sp?]. When you look for it & find it, it;s nice: Wow marble steps & iron railings. Wow hand carved mahogany. Wow the pool roof moves
