    well I'm not a gambler but I have always thought the Atlantic City Convention Center where the largest pipe organ on earth is located should be a big casino.......I might just go gamble then!

      I'll play very rarely, in that if I'm passing by I might play $20 for fun (machines) and if I'm up I will pull out immediately. I might walk away with $5 extra, but hey, its $5 more than what I had before I went in so I'm not complaining. If I loose $20 then I'm not in tears, I had a little fun and I can afford it. I'm not competent with regards to card games so I stick to the gaming machines - besides what table would let me in with $20 to spare![:P]

      There aren't many casinos here in the UK, but the situation I describe would be typical like when I visit the US on holidays.

      Apart from that the only other thing I play is the lottery, but I only spend £1 a week (and a large proportion of the money goes to charities).</p>

      I have stayed in Casino hotels - not because of the gambling but because they offer really nice rooms at reasonable prices with great facilities and amenities. The most impressive for me has to be Mohegun Sun, if I remember correctly they had a wonderful indoor waterfall and a great shopping mall. I remember on that occasion I gambled $10 whilst staying there, and left with $20 - not bad! Great fun.

        I don't go in them because I know I could not stop.

        When the company I work in celebrated their 20th aniversary they organised an evening and one part of it was a casino (with fake money). It was just for fun, but the change that comes over people is hard to believe. Just this evening made me certain that keeping out of a real casino is good for me.

          My background: My better half and I spend a great deal of time at casinos. I don't gamble much myself. When I do, I play slots, but it's hardly gambling since I've never actually lost money. I always leave with the same or more than I arrived with, but that's not very adventurous is it? She gambles a lot though, she's actually a whale. We have top VIP status at a few casinos in Las Vegas and Reno. They are the Venitian, the Bellagio, Tropicana in Vegas, and the Peppermill and Atlantis in Reno. My favorite casino is the Peppermill followed closely by the Venetian.

          I've always been fascinated in casinos. Ever since I was young, I would get excited studying the rise and fall of various casinos, what makes a casino successful, what make some businesses stand the test of time. I've also been fascinated by the marketing aspect, how they draw you in, how they keep you in, how they gat you to spend more money and how they get you to keep coming back. Every minute detail in a casino is designed to make you more comfortable about spending money. Everything, the lights, the sound, the "promotions", the colors, and the layout. There's a great deal psychology at play in casinos. It's amazing how effectively they can communicate irrational thought patterns to otherwise rational people. It's marketing at it's best. Believe it or not, I one day hope to own a casino myself.

            Whoops, I forgot to mention that my favorite place to gamble is Las Vegas, but I also like Reno quite well. Here are some venues I enjoy in the area:</p>

            -Peppermill Best overall. Fabulous resort, excellent hotel, best selection/quality of suites, friendliest staff, coolest casino, best entertainment, excellent restaurants. I live five minutes away from this one, so I visit it several times a week. We eat there about three times a week too.
            </p>

            -Nugget Second favorite casino. Most fun casino floor. Most relaxing atmosphere. Best pool. Pretty good restaurants. Many fun attractions.

              I have never been in a casino.  I would love to go to Las Vegas to experience it.  I do like the odd flutter in a bookmakers and we have a Greyhound Track and a Horse Raciing Track where I live so I like to go there.

                I love the stratosphere in Las Vegas, mainly for their $5 craps tables. Put down $100 and walked away with close to $4,000 one night.
