    our favorites vary.
    top 3 for us........... Alhambra, Crystal and Marriott (we have won there)
    worst 2 for us..........Riu and the Trop. (we have always lost there)

    The worst part of all casinos that we have been in is the smoke.
    When we leave, we STINK.
    Alhambra seems to be the worst re: smoke.

    Favorite: Hyatt - we've had our best luck there and it has a nice atmosphere. They have a nice variety of games and machines too.

    Honorable mention: Holiday Inn - we always end up there. I don't know if we really like it, but we always go there.
    Marriott Stellaris - lots of variety, wasn't too crowded when we were there - smokey though.

    Least favorite - Occidental by far our least favorite. We just walked in and didn't like the vibe and the machines seemed older.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    We tend to go to the Glitz casino at LaCabana because we can walk there from our timeshare. I only play table games. Mostly blackjack and some roulette. They have low $$ tables so I can gamble for longer without having to refinance my home. I never play slots and DW can always find a slot she likes.

    We don't go to the casinos at the high rises because they are generally higher priced. Glitz, Alhambra are the most visited.

    I like the Hyatt. Whenever, we've been there the dealers have been friendly and the tables relaxed. Alhambra is way too smoky for me. It's too bad because we stay across the street at the Divi and it would be convenient. I'm looking forward to being downtown next trip and spending some time at the Crystal and Seapoet Casinos.

    It really depends on what I am playing. I prefer to play poker @ the Radisson now the Hilton, and blackjack @ the Ritz so I can great drinks from a real glass. I also enjoy the Hyatt's casino. I am not a fan of the HI casino...dealers were not very friendly on the few occasions I was there and its very dated.

    I enjoy the Crystal downtown I have met the friendliest people there. One year I was doing really well on a slot and a very nice local lady noticed I did not have a players club card and asked if she could put her card in my machine. I was happy to do so, she kept cheering for my machine and I believe we both made out well and have a great time talking. Since Alhambra is across the street from Divi that is where I go more although I do find the smoke to be too much as well. Once I visited the Seaport (my friend's favorite who stays at Renn) I hit a machine all the bells and whistles went off, took the worker forever to come over and back with my money. I had no clue how much I was going to get and it ended up to hardly be worth the wait I will never forget the letdown and could not understand all the lights and bells going off for such a small amount

    Alhambra, by default, is my favorite. We stay at the Divi every year.
    Over the last 7 years, I've done ok. Last year I actually doubled my 2 week allowance.
    Not a fan of the Crystal, but will go there to wait for the Bride to finish up at Michael Kors.

    Has always been The Casino at the Radisson....... most years quite good to me including Royal Flushes at video poker 3 out of the last 5 years. Staying at the Amsterdam Manor this year, I really grew to love the Glitz. Smaller casino with 2 deck blackjack and some really nice dealers.
