fort liquordale is recommended
casino Miami has a few electronic games, jai alie, bingo.
magic city is larger, BETTER buffet,
EACH requires players club for discounts.
check your hotel room key for admission waiver.

If you have a car, it's still worth the drive up to Fort Lauderdale. It's quick & painless and the casinos are much much better than in Miami.

much larger, real casino, not racino. much better entertainment, food and MUCH better comps. live dealers, not just video dealers.
Short trip, some negatives as to parking, room water bottles, room rates, but far and above the two Miami 'postage stamp' sized places.
I did a review of the hard rock in Liquordale but was drunk on my first visit and woefully sick on a subsequent visit so I've not been there for a long time.

My biggest issue with the Hard Rock was that the parking (at least when I went, I guess that's 8 years ago) was nowhere near the casino. Like, park, go to first floor, walk OUTSIDE through a couple blocks of shops and restaurants, walk another block past a water feature, then finally enter the casino. That's fine when it works. But south Florida weather doesn't exactly always make a walk outdoors pleasant.

Magic City is a nice spot if you're not looking for live table games. They have quite a few different electronic tables from SHFL and Interblock in the back, and all the new slots from all different vendors.

never went on that trip to ft lauderdale.

but will be in miami. google says there are 2 casinos nearby:
-magic city
-casino miami

both open at 10am?

anyone been in either?



According to a past, highly respected, WoV member living in that area bags are not allowed into the Casino Miami. Apparently you must leave your bag in the bushes outside which makes it subject to random theft and/or looting. This is especially a problem if anyone in your party has a bag containing really good candy or something.

Heck, I'd rather get soaked by a torrential downpour than use the indoor walkway and get soaked by the prices in those shops you pass by.

Most importantly, will you be meeting up with Nathan?

If so, don't be moving in on PokerGrinder's... chick(??). I'll have you know he's trying to get into shape just for her.
