Best Slots on Strip?

Okay, we all have our favorites for not losing as much money on the strip (notice I didn't say winning!). We've had marginal luck at the Flamingo....What are your favorite places???

Sure not the Flamingo, you must have picked up the money I left there, LOL! I have had the best luck at NYNY. I sure hope they are getting rid of my machines in their redo (but I bet they are!)

I've had the best luck at....Circus Circus. I wasn't even remotely interested in going there, but husband wanted to and I tagged along. I played for a LONG time at a penny machine on $1. I consider that luck. Mainly because I don't gamble that much.

Really, MGMPlayer? I have had terrible luck at NYNY. So terrible that I won't even stay there. I love to gamble into the wee hours and I kept picturing myself losing money there. The only place worse than NYNY for me is TI.

I have had good luck at Excalibur, Casino Royale and the Tropicana. Off strip - Palms and Orleans. I have heard many people rave about the gold coast. But, the gold coast is off strip.

Casino Royale & O,Sheas before they close it down.My missus was having a go on a red white & blue sevens machine ,when it stuck & started paying out on every spin!!.It didn,t last long before the dreaded 3300 code came up and it shut down.

Love the Wynn for winning on Wolf Run (penny) and Steve Wynn (nickel). We actually won $400 dollars on a bonus spin on the penny Wolf Run, amazing in my book. zbethg

Had SUPERB luck at NYNY in May; happened to walk but a Butterfly 7's dollar machine that as I said "looked cute".

My BFF watched as I put in a $100, met max 3 times and hit for $1100. Was quite happy! There were several hand payouts going on around us too. Cashed that sucker in and put the $ in the room safe. First time I took home more than I brought! Course, I ended up playing some of it, but not all. Turned some of that into $300 playing whatever their "signature" machine is for $1 per spin ($3 max bet).

Going back there for a night over Labor Day weekend.

I guess, if truth be told, it is my favorite becuase the last time I was there I won. On nickel machines. Before that, not so much, at all. Short memory, me! Before the last time we were there, I would have to say I have won the most at MGM and the Hilton.

I would have to say the Riviera. It isn't the flashiest place in town, but for some reason I always do well on slots. My wife and I can play the Lightning Keno for hours while putting back the drinks. I have also had some luck at TI.

On our last trip we stayed at the Mirage and I had a tough go of it on the slots...I doubt I will stay there again because I had such poor luck.

We always have the best luck at Excalibur for some reason. I always win there. In Jan, I hit a royal flush on VP and ended up winning about $1500 off of one VP machine. There are a few slots that we always plan on and win. I think TI is the worst. We stayed there last year and could not win a thing!!

MGM player, I like MGM Grand too. TXMIMI, I feel for you about TI. They have a terrible slot selection, too. Why is it so bad?
