    2 big casinos within 15 minutes of home. Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods. Really, after going a few times they get old. Now I only go for concerts or if someone from out of town is visiting and has never been. Of course, the most I ever won was $85.00 :mad: I'm sure I lost a lot more than that.

    Well I live in Nevada so you do the math. I don't really care for casinos at all. It's okay every once in a while but it gets really old after a while since they are in the buisness of making profit and taking your pay checks!!!:eek: Put $5 in a bar slot and get a few drinks out of it. Then call it good!

    none except for crappy hub caps and floor mats.
    I like them maybe every few years. Its about a 9 hour drive to Vegas or you can hop on a one hour plane ride. The only thing about Vegas I like is the hotels. We rarely gamble. We're thinking of going soon only because Vegas is so desperate to get customers that you can stay in even in the nicest hotels like the Wynn for like 50% off of what they were last year. Some of those hotels like the Billagio or Wynn are insane. That alone is an experience.

    I don't really like the majority of the Indian casinos around us. Half of them are just trashy and cheap looking.

    Nothing yet, brand new!
    I went there several months ago for a business trip. Nice place just in the middle of f*ing nowhere. Did they do that on purpose??

    At night the place came alive, in the daytime just a bunch of zombies running around chain smoking.

    But to answer-- no I don't like 'em. Waste of money and time for me. Just not my thing.

    I want my toes in the water and my ass in the sand with a cold beer.

    I've never gambled in one, but I have been to one. I can't say whether or not I really like them, but, I am hoping the TX Legislature will allow a few to open in Galveston. After going down there for the first time since Ike, it needs something like that to boost the local economy there.
