I can only confidently comment on Cabo. It has a machine-only casino in the mall by the marina, on the top floor. It mostly has bingo games played on 3x5 cards. The energy/fun level is very low. This was early in the day, so maybe it picks up at night. Still, so many better things to do in Cabo than play bingo on a machine.

I'm pretty sure Ensenada doesn't have anything better, or I would have heard about it. I've been to the other two cities on cruise ship stops and never noticed any casinos, but neither was I really looking, as I had so little time.

Not that you asked, but Mexico City has a small full blown casino in the Zona Rosa. Be sure to eat at Angus while you're there.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Puerto Vallarta has 2 casinos within a short walking distance from the cruise port. The casino in the mall is more upscale, has a couple table games and many of the slot themes one would find in Vegas. I found everyone to be very helpful there. A cocktail waitress spotted me trying to squish some pesos into a random slot in the machine and laughed. The machines don't take cash. Cash must be loaded onto a card at the cage. Ijole, gringo!

PS didn't see ocean or desert theme game for you so it may not be worth the trip ;)

I stand corrected on that. I was there on a cruise ship stop several years ago and things either changed or I never noticed it in the first place.

You can swing by the Riviera del Pacifico in Ensenada which was a casino that saw its peak during the Prohibition. Pay attention to the ceiling of the main gambling floor (which is smaller than some bathrooms I've been in...); there's some interesting architecture to compensate for the pre-camera era up there.

Dude, the slots are denominated in pesos. At 20:1 exchange rate your expected loss is about the same as 9/6 JoB ;)

what are the blackjack conditions like, and what % tax do they charge for table game wins?
