What Casino Can You Never Win a Thing: Do You Return?

I always wonder if others make the mistake I do. Seems I can never win a darn thing at Caesars. Every trip I make, I return to see if things have changed. Make my deposit and leave. I've had good and bad runs in every casino but never have had consistent bad luck as I do there. Right under that is the RIO.

What is yours and why. For me why? I always think, maybe this time.

I've never won anything at the Golden Nugget which the few times I've played there so I stopped playing there.

For a long time it was Bellagio but I actually did pretty well there the last couple of times. So I guess the streak is broken!

I got back from Vegas 3 weeks ago. Stayed at the Rio and had terrible luck. Then again, I had really bad luck the whole weekend wherever I gambled.

Will I return to the Rio? Maybe someday, but not soon. However, that's not due to the losing, but more a reflection of the fact that I found its location inconvenient. I had previously stayed mid Strip and loved it. Being able to walk quickly to many other casinos was a bigger plus for me than I realized before.

One other thing to think about - did you have fun while losing @ Caesar's? If so, then you have to consider that in the equation. If losing in general makes you not have fun, then you should either not gamble, or gamble a smaller amount that doesn't mean that much to you.

For example, my mother gets extremely nervous even playing a $5 Black Jack table (despite that fact that my parents are fairly well off and can easily afford $500-1000 losses in a night). However, she found that she loved playing the penny slots, and if she loses $75-100 that way, well, it's her entertainment cost for the night.

Bill's has not been kind to me in the gambling department. And yet, I will be staying there again due to location. I like the atmosphere, the low limits and the dealers but I can't hit a darn thing. I just take a walk after I make my morning contribution and head to places that have shown some appreciation for my gambling talents.

To be honest, I think every casino in LV has treated me poorly on one occasion or another. While I rarely forgive a human that treats me this way, my memory is short-lived and like swiss cheese when it comes to the Strip.

I never win a thing at Caesars Palace, but I always find myself stopping in the Forum Casino to waste a few dollars while my wife spends time in the Forum Shops. I keep telling myself not to waste my money there, but it helps the time go by while she is spending money elsewhere!

If I'm DT its gotta be Binions- in fact my husband doesnt do well there either. Up on the strip I have had bad luck in the Riv, NYNY, Luxor, and last year the Flamingo. I can see myself going back to the Flamingo, but I can stay away from the others I mentioned without a problem.

Acsmacan, I'm with you there. DW and I haven't won at Binions the last couple years. The same for any of the Boyd properties DT. I've kept very good records the last few years, so I can look back with certainty. The last year or so, our success has really improved at the GN of all places, and the Elco has dropped right off. I play the old three reelers most of the time.

GN and CP I agree. Don't go to CP, even with comps, anymore.

Downtown: Binions is right up there as well. I always parked in there valet so I had to go thru the casino to get on to Freemont. Along the way, they have right in the aisle and still there are two of my favs. (slots). I always have to give them a try on the way in and out. Never ever won a dime. Talk about dementia.
