Favorite casino to gamble in?

Husband and I are going to Vegas in June and staying 2 nights through MyVegas at MB and then downtown for the rest of the trip. We are low rollers and love to sit and play pennie/nickel slots with a little bit of PaiGow Poker and BJ in there. What are your favorite casinos to gamble in? Atmosphere, service? Seems to have decent pay outs?

We were at MB in Feb. and did pretty well on slots. The drink service was fine and we liked the casino lay out. It was very comfortable and not too loud like some other places can get. Right now, it's on the top of our list.

My all time favorite casino for blackjack is Luxor. They usually have some of the best tables, and most of the dealers are fun to play with.

The Hard Rock is also a good place, since they play mostly classic rock and heavy metal. So much better than the booming club music most other casinos play.

Casinos are for gambling. So I prefer to play at casinos that have the best gambling conditions, so it doesn't cost me as much.

Gold Coast is the best, followed by Orleans. Gold Coast has the best video poker pay-tables, so we always visit during our trips. But the last year or so there have been times when the Pai Gow Poker there is $10 minimum. The VP pay-tables are a little worse at Orleans (still better than on the Strip) but they always have $5 minimum Pai Gow Poker.

I only have the heart to play slots...in Planet Hollywood...late at night. Liveliest vibe on the strip after 11pm on a weekday. Good cocktail service at that time also.

I like Aria. It's a bit dark (light-wise) in there, but that's what I prefer. Good cocktail watress service too! My second most favorite is Luxor! Comfortable table chairs and usually good CW service. Dealers at both places usually very good too.

I love playing VP at the Book & Stage in Cosmo. Bartenders are awesome! I like playing slots wherever they are paying well! :-) We leave in 2 days!!

On Fremont Street I like the D (dancing dealers! Might be more of a draw for your husband though...), Main Street Station (9/6 video poker at the bar!) and for some old-school low rolling, the El Cortez.
