Can anybody let me know the conditions (ie table minimums, tables open, ect) of casinos in DE, I am specifically thinking of Harrington and Dover Downs. I have never been before and I am thinking of heading up there next weekend. If any forum members are nearby, it would be cool to meet up with any of you.

Just as a side question...who the hell came up with "Belly full of beer and a possum in a sack" as the tag line for the Eastern Casino sub forum. The song specifically says its a "Louisiana Saturday Night", Louisiana is not on the east coast LOL
I got a plan, we take all your picks we reverse them like one of those twilight zone episodes where everything is the opposite. You say "black" we go white.

Delaware has pretty standard decent black rules. They all use 6-8 decks with a mix of csmís and shoes. They all stand on 17, 3:2, resplit to I think 4 total hands. Delaware Park has surrender. Also they all have a lot of Spanish 21 and people seem to like it. They usually have maybe 5-12 tables open and usually always have $10 tables available. They all start sweating when black chips hit the felt. Iím probably headed out there tomorrow for a day or two. South of Harrington about 50 miles you have Ocean Downs which is in Maryland. Pretty much the same rules, maybe they hit 17. I think they use all csmís.

Why do you feel it is a better casino than say Dover Downs? Are the minimums roughly the same?

Iíve never been to Dover Downs. I really only know PA and NJ casinoís with any familiarity.

I believe Delaware Park often has $2 blackjack.

But I have experienced Delaware Park sweating even the smallest action

Dover is my favorite of the three. Craps and BJ can almost always be found at $10. Harrington has $5 craps most weekdays and weeknights (sometimes Sunday night). Word to the wise, don't eat the buffet at Harrington unless it's free. Harrington is worth a visit if you play slots as they seem to have a good variety, but Dover's older reel machines seem to give me better luck, especially in high limit.

So on my trip, I hit National Harbor, Harrington, and Dover. MGM was probably the most beautiful of the three. Dover was probably my favorite though. Harrington is like a hole in the wall.

For the very limited play that I did, Dover sent me some nice mailers. I will probably be back either this month or the next.

This all sounds about right. Dover is probably the best of the three for free play offers. Harrington seems to give the regulars between $10-20 free play, and $50 food comp each month which keeps us going back. Dover definitely seems to calculate your free play based on not only your theoretical loss, but whether or not you lose or win. I had some great offers for a while, then I started winning and not giving it back, and the offers went flat pretty quickly.
