where did you play slots/video poker lately and have fun?

We're heading out to LV next week and usually play off the strip.

Love video poker.....has anyone had any luck lately or are the machines so tight it's no fun?? Usually have fun at Palms and old downtown!

On the strip played VP many places but got to play the longest at Casino Royale. Had a blast there also. Lots of people at the bar whooping it up and keeping the bar area a big party.

Down town got some great return on the back bar at Binions. And large free strong drinks while you play.

We will be staying at the MGM for 6 days, although my DH rarely gambles, yeah I know lol, anyway I love the gambling at MGM, NYNY, the casinos have a pretty awesome vibe, and the luck hasn't been too bad.

We think the gambling has gotten worse on the strip. Places we used to win at like IP and Flamingo and Bill's we dont win at any more. I've had fun at the Gold Nugget. There's just something about that place!

We came home winners after a 2 week vacation - did most of ours off strip at Station Casinos with Red Rock Casino being the best. It sure feels good to come home ahead (when I figure after 2 weeks I would have had fun but had spent my gambling budget plus).

No big pay outs - but we were lucky. We also found that perks came quickly and enjoyed a number of good dinners paid for by our gambling.

We did play on the strip as well. Paris Hotel seemed very tight - while some of the smaller casinos were looser.

We found the slots on the strip a lot tighter on our latest trip, or maybe we were just unlucky.

We stopped at Red Rocks casino on the way to Mount Charleston and came away with many more dollars than we had arrived with. It was fun playing the slots there as you got many more bonus rounds too.

We went to Laughlin for the day and we could not lose, we visited nearly all the casinos there and they were all very generous.

Will definitely visit these casinos again

I had fun at the Main Street Station. Plenty of good machines, good drinks and the Triple 7 brew pub is very handy.

I went solo in October last year and played mainly Boyd properties as they nhad the best pay tables. I played at the VP bar back by the poker room at Orleans and hit a quarter Hearts Royal. I held just the A & K and it hit. Played BP. ALso played at Gold Coast, MSS, Cal. Had the most fun at MSS. Other casinos I played that were not Boyd were 4 Queens, The D, GN, Binions, El Cortez, PH, Bally's, and Paris. Orleans and MSS I enjoyed the most. I came back with 4/5 of my bankroll and I was out there for 8 days.
