    Which casino has best slot selection?

    We always end up at the same casinos; Alhambra, Crystal and Seaport. Not thrilled with Alhambra but do enjoy the Seaport during late afternoon. So wondering where the best selection of slot machines is? Planning on a trip to the Ritz casino, possibly Stellaris and maybe the Glitz. I know I won’t find a lot of the video slots but hopefully some!

    i would say the Ritz has a good selection.
    we played there yesterday, lasted over an hour and cashed out even.
    then went to marriott, played for another hour and lost our original and then more.

    Did you find the Ritz to be less smoky?

    I think the Ritz has he best slot machines, too. And you are not right on top of each other. The casino is built so everything is spread out, its roomier than other casinos

    I like the idea of going to the casino at the Ritz so I can also check out the hotel. The Glitz is also mentioned on the board fairly often so we thought we would check it out. I understand it’s pretty small. One place I never hear mentioned is the Excelsior. I believe we stopped in there once, years ago, but didn’t stay.

    Yes, it’s at the Holiday Inn. I vaguely remember going in and thinking, yah this is not for us. I enjoy spending a little time in the casinos and find in Aruba they tend to be more relaxed. If it’s too smoky or too loud I’m out. Last trip we were at Alhambra and a woman at the next table was so drunk and constantly screeching everyone at the table got up and left. It sounds like the Ritz might be a good fit with their selection of slots, especially if it’s not smokey.

    I really dislike Excelsior. Same old machines. Even when I stay at the H.I. I hardly ever play there. . I did hear (rumor?) that they were going to close the casino for renovation. I wonder when? Since high season is starting, maybe in the spring. hopefully.

    Glitz is quite small... I don't do slots... but any casino is worth a 'check out'.....
