A couple of airlines are having a price war on UK/US prices right now and they have return flights to New York, Orlando or Miami for less than £250 so I'm hoping to snap one up ASAP.
Can anybody give me any pointers on where would be best for me to visit for my Blackjack needs? I'd hate to go all that way and find I've picked the wrong state!
If you stayed in Philadelphia, you would have 2 PA casino’s in the immediate vicinity. Then if you wanted to visit NYC or DC, they are both within 2 hrs driving distance. And Atlantic City is only 1hr away. You could also take the train to any of those.
I wouldn’t exactly call PA the greatest tourist attraction (although there are things to see/do).... but it might give you the best bang for your buck depending on how much you want to travel once you land.
You would want to have a rental car to get to either of these. There may be rail/bus options, but they will not be simple nor convenient.
It's been a couple of years since I have been to either one. I'm not sure of the rules or proliferation of CSM's, but I want to say decks were hand-shuffled last time I was there.
Drink policies vary since the tribe only has ONE liquor license. Dealer attire varies also. The 6:5 pit is obviously not going to offer any scantily clad dealers. The 3:2 pits claim to offer 'dealertainers' but its really just a more scantily designed costume than anything else and more frequent cocktails.
I would NOT recommend Florida other than the twice a day Gambling Ship out of Port Canaveral a few hours north of Miami.
I think you would be best off heeding the advice of previous posters and going to Pennsylvania.
The airlines often consider "Islip, NY" and an airport in Connecticut whose name I can't recall off-hand to be "New York" so you would be really closer to Foxwoods if you landed in Connecticut, however I've heard increased "grumbling" about Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun and see no reason to favor them in any way.Quote: JimmyChips
If you fly into NY and are willing to rent a car Foxwoods & Mohegan Sun are a couple hours away. Foxwoods is a huge property by anyones standard. As far as gaming rules are better than vegas strip but not Bolder Hwy.
Boulder Highway in Vegas has some local casinos that offer no glitz or glamor and so have to offer good rules. Some other local casinos in Vegas can be bargains but watch out for some of these "four blackjack tables but only in the afternoons" situations at the really small casinos that just offer what they have to so as to keep their licenses.
Since BJ isn't my game of choice, I don't pay a huge amount of attention to the various casinos offerings but all the tables I have seen both at Mohegan and in AC use CSM for all card games.
Is this correct?
