NO/TN/NC CET properties vs AC

Looks like I will have to relocate to Miami and I will definitely miss the 14yrs of Atlantic City gambling..........of course instead of just hopping in a car for a drive, I'll have to hop on a plane, sucks.....

Comparing CET properties, can anyone tell me what I will be missing out on when comparing casinos in NO, TN and NC to Borgata and Harrah's?

Or flat out, take a longer flight straight back to AC?

The flight back to AC from Fl is quicker then the drive from NY. You might be able to find cheap flights on Spirit. Sorry I can't help you with the casinos in the other states.

I don't think Tennessee has casinos? There were some good TR from the NO 7 stars trip, if you can bring them up using the search function you will enjoy reading them. Check the Total Rewards Air schedule for flights from Florida to AC, Tunica, Laughlin, and Reno/Tahoe too. Good luck in your move!

Spirit goes non-stop from FLL to ACY. Fares are dirt cheap... sometimes less than a tank of gas for a round trip ticket.

I wouldn't write AC off without checking out their fare calendars.

If that doesn't work, I would probably just relocate my play to a FL casino. Hard Rock in Hollywood is pretty nice and Genting may open a temporary casino in Downtown Miami very soon.

That would be my plan of action, I haven't been to the CET properties you mentioned.

CET has it's eyes set on opening a casino in Miami, but that's at least a couple of years away, if it happens at all.

I've been to NO a few times! I like the casino there and have done pretty well in action and wins on the machines. The food there is also pretty good in the casinos and some of the local restaurants accept TR credits.

I don't think they offer as much in the way of entertainment, but you are in NO so that shouldn't be a problem.

I agre that the flights on Spitit Air are cheap enough to make it a once a month visit to AC, but that depends on your entertainment fund and your own personal situation.

NO is a good alternative to AC for a different place to gamble. They treat Platinum players pretty well there.

take a flight back to ac. from miami to those casinos you mentioned is over 10 hr drive and not worth it. i've been to new orleans, and to cherokee in nc.

when i went, cherokee doesn't have table games or alcohol. (the alcohol might have changed since i went quite a long time ago). in the middle of nowhere. i know others have enjoyed new orleans, i didn't. slots were tight and i just didn't like the bourbon street experience. the other option would be biloxi, which i did enjoy. but again, a long drive.

good luck with your move.

Cherokee, NC does have alcohol now but the table games are electronic. They do not have a good VP selection.

My MIL is at Cherokee right now doing her 7 Star trip and she says she is having a blast!! I've never been there, but she is with us all the time at Caesars AC, so if that is any indication of Cherokee, I guess its not a bad place to visit.

Biloxi is another choice. It's closer (over an hour drive) from NO. Biloxi has about a dozen casinos. Grand Biloxi owned by CET has very good offer in comparison with any CET AC casinos. The most fancy one is Beau Rivage. Hard Rock has the best video pokers. Depending on which game you play, if it's BJ, they have more variety including two decks hand dealed. Many lower table limit for any table games. Casino hoppers similar to the jitney in AC charges $5.00 all day, very good deal.

Correction: Biloxi is another choice. It's closer (over an hour drive) from NO, should be Biloxi is another choice. It's closer (over an hour drive) than NO.
