    Thumbs up Casinos

    Hi All...Just wondering if the Alhambra Casino has any new slot machines different from last year? Any one know? We always have so much fun there. Enjoy all the slots and just love "let it ride"
    What about the Marriott Casino?

    Thanks all. 20 days left! Just can not wait. Oh, does anyone know where I can order a small sheet cake? My husband is retiring and I wanted to have a small celebration. Thanks again!

    our latest trip to aruba was in sept 07
    during that time we were at a few casinos
    alhambra used to be our favorite. in september we found that no longer to be true.
    "my" yahtzee machines and battleship machines were no where to be found.

    we (my husband's and my opinions) felt that the alhambra was sort of worn down and was kind of grungy. it really needed spiffing up. by no means was it comparable to the royal cabana casino when that place was beginning to show its grunginess. the alhambra needs a good cleaning and maybe a facelift.

    we did play there for a few nights but really did notice the wear and tear, the excessive smoke and as i said my favorite machines were now history.

    the marriott casino was the same as always. some new machines, some old regulars. plenty of good ventilation and it was not too smokey. airconditioning was cool....somewhat cold. we lost there as well.

    we did enjoy the "cool" casino at the new riu, fka the aruba grand. very very nice, although small.

    i am guessing that a small cake can be ordered at lings bakery dept or super food or certified?

    Question Comments about Riu's Cool Casino

    I have been told that the Riu's Cool Casino is nothing but the Aruba Grand's Centurion Casino, without much refurbishment at all. Is this true? Anyone have any opinions about this?
