Niagara Falls start before Vegas

Ok I don't know if this is a post for here but, I frequent TA every single moring usually from Aug to Dec for your great reports and info before my annual trip late Oct to early Nov for SEMA show every year.

We live in Niagara Falls, Ny and also frequent our Seneca Niagara Casino. I was wondering of any of you's ever come this way and where it stands in your book.

But I do have a cool quick winning streak that never happens to my husband Tim or myself I have been dying to share with people who can relate.

We get free money each week usually 80.00 and we split it and usually have to quickly stop by ATM soon to withdrawl much more, which makes our free money cost us a ton.

We have been trying to limit so we can save and spend in Vegas.

Anyway Saturday night we decided to go and eat and of course said ok lets try 20.00 each and thats it. We were playing a Mystic Temple group and Tim hit like 35.00 and then 60.00 right from start so I said what the heck, I will play another 40.00 cuz he would be sharing with me anyway. Well I got bonus round and one spin got me 550.00. whole round 600.00 yeah. Gave Tim 200.00 keep 200.00 to gamble put 100.00 away for each kid.

We went in another area I was playing progressive 2 5 10 it was at 50,000. (had to hit soon,(but it didnt). I was making small hits while Tim was losing everything. I hit 200.00 and split with Tim who was getting discouraged. He went to play VP. I continued to play where i was I hit another 600.00. I couldnt beleive it. Next Tim texts me a pic soon as I see a pic coming I knew he hit. He usually plays 25 cents max but machine kept giving him little hits so he went to a dollar and hit 4 A and a 2 for 2000.00 holy cow that was great 900. for me and 100.00 each kid and 900. for him. I made a nice deposit in my purse and moved to a different machine.

Well Tim feels its won money why not spend it so he was and was starting to get low so he went to progressive 25 cent VP and sure enough about an hour later I got another text and a pic saying I got it.. OMG 1786.00. 2 Hand pays in an hour.

I went to monopoly and hit 550.00. Of course shared half with Tim

Well this never happens to us and Our kids also made out real well.

I just cant beleive it and cant wait to go to Vegas and hopefully will continue the luck

Just wanted to share. And yes I saved most of mine and had a great shopping day on Sunday.

We were in your area in August and I did visit Seneca Casino. Didn't have much luck there. Hope to do better in Vegas. See you at the meet & greet and SEMA Show.

Forgot to tell you, that is my picture at Niagara Falls from August.

we go to Seneca about once a month, get free rooms, food, show tickets, booze, etc. the last two times I found the machines really tight, my friend was there this past weekend as well.

I am headed to Vegas in October and will likely stay at Seneca going down and coming back.

I will not go to Fallsview Niagara ever again, it is a big rip off and you get nothing

take care

silly question but just wanted to ask real quick: do you get served drinks at that casino like you do in Vegas??? Here in Canada, even if you're dropping $$ into slots/VP whatever, you have to pay for your drinks. Was wondering if the free drinks while gambling is a Vegas thing or at any USA casino????

Congratulations on your wins! We were just at Niagara Falls on Sept. 4th, but we were with a group of friends and didn't get to gamble at all. Hope you get to Vegas soon!

Yes at Seneca Niagara there are free drinks while gambling (not pop) like Fallsview. Seneca also has way better comps.

we were in canada for a family trip and gambled alot and hated no drinks! we didn't do well at all wins wise!(fallsview casino and casino niagara)

a couple weeks later we went to artpark in buf and after the concert we headed off to casino seneca - it is small and the drink service was not at all impressive-we didn't do well - very tight slots and high limits on roulette and hubby couldn't get anywhere near pigowpoker at 25$ minimum- don't know if we'll go back- to me vegas is the only way to go!

hope you have good luck in vegas!

I live a few hours away from you, close to Ithaca. I more often run up to the Turning Stone casino in Verona when I feel the need to donate money to a casino. They get pretty good country acts to come to their show room, so it makes for a fun night out.

By the way retrogirl, I have been to Lake Tahoe and Atlantic City as well as Vegas many times, and I have received the "free" drinks while gambling at all of those places.

I think the no-comped drinks is an entirely Canadian thing, and I gotta say that it totally sucks.....especially when you get back form a trip to Vegas and you go to your local casino for a fix and it's just not the same (((sigh))).

I am wishing I was in LV right now.....lol

I was in Vegas the last week of August and it was nice to get those drinks!!! I know that at the casinos in Ontario they aren't free, but wondered if it was only Vegas that did that. Thanks for the quick response and hopefully the OP didn't mind me jumping onto her thread.

drinks in vegas aren't free, you have to be gambling money, and you really should tip the cocktail waitress.
