Within the last 6 weeks, I've been to each of them except Motor City, and I don't play there anymore as they do not have enough VP machines. There are always people waiting to get a seat.

Not much has changed over the past few years, but I will mention a couple of things: the small non-smoking area at MGM has the worst VP pay tables on the entire floor, so I would expect the regular slots in there to be likewise.

All VP machines at Greektown have been moved into a couple of the small rooms in the annex area alongside Monroe Ave. Be aware that a bank of Game Kings which offer quarter 9/6 JOB also give you a short royal of 2,500.




Not doubting you Vic, but can anybody else confirm the 2500 on the royal? Just boggles my muddled brain to think about it.

Are minimums still high? Can a $5 dice table ever be found in Detroit?

Has anyone ever seen a $5 craps table at any Detroit casino?



While going to law school in Lansing, I was frequent to all the casinos, primarily to MGM and Caesars, which was about 4 to 5 years ago and they always had $5 tables, except for late Friday and Saturday nights. If you love to play craps there is no better atmosphere in the world IMO in the US. On any given weekend at MGM you would find 8 full craps tables. It is pretty incredible to witness, with thousands of dollars of chips laid out on the table on every roll.

They never have $5 tables any more and in fact often have $15 minimums on the majority of tables. They get plenty of play. That's at MGM, Motor City, and Greektown. Caesars still has $5 tables all the time. Soaring Eagle in Mt. Pleasant is $5 too.

The last time I was at Greektown the games were mediocre. The craps tables were full of railbirds with not many bets being made and they refused to open another table. This was a Wednesday morning. The VP was stuck in a couple small rooms and all the paytables appeared to be reduced. I was at Windsor last month and though it was a little boring as mentioned in a previous thread, but I felt safe there and the games were as good or better. There were also more tables available and it is non smoking.

The other thing to remember when comparing a Detroit casino to Vegas is that it is still Detroit and you can't walk one block without putting yourself in danger. Not that long ago I took my mom and aunt on a bus trip there (their idea) my mom went to go outside for some fresh air and the security guard stopped her and asked where she was going. When she told him he advised her to go to the main entrance because "if you go out that exit we may never see you again". If I go up that way I only go to Windsor of Firekeepers in Battle Creek otherwise I go to Pa.

Re:

"Caesars Windsor is really hurting for business now that competition has
increased and it is very possible to score free room offers with substantial
low to middle level play."

And add to that:

I think the border crossing rules now expect you to have a Passport
or one of the enhanced driver's lisences, which some states offer
and some states don't.

That seems like it would hurt the Canadian tourism industry, including
Windsor.
