Which Dotty's is bigger than the Longhorn? It looks like Dottys #11 is in Reno, although there is also a Dotty's 11 in Oregon.

My original post had a typo (now corrected) but the correct information is, of course, on my List of Vegas Casinos, which no forum member will ever look at.

If by "them" you mean non-casinos (≤15 machines), then be my guest on writing them up if you think it's so easy. This would have to qualify as one of the absolute worst uses of my limited time.



That's not what I meant. I meant non-restricted casinos with MORE than 15 machines.

Never assume.

I was on there earlier today, checking it out as well as a lot of stuff on your site. It looks good.

Frankly, although I know that you were somehow involved with the Wizard sites way back when (and maybe still?), I didn稚 know you had a new site until today. For some reason, I thought you were involved with cheapovegas.com

The post directly above the one you replied to said, in its entirety, "I'm not listing places with only ~15 machines, that would be a waste."

Thanks for the kind words about my site.

(1) I haven't worked on WoO since circa 2010.

(2) My site isn't "new", it's over 20 years old (as listed on the About page), which is ancient in Internet terms.

(3) I never had any relation to Cheapo Vegas (though I'm flattered that you associated me with it, at least the original version). However, CV was the inspiration for my site (as explained on the About page). After the new owner bought Cheapo Vegas, he wanted me to publish a guest article on Easy Vegas. I would have jumped at the chance to publish an article by either of the original authors, Matt or "Stinky", but I declined, because the new owner had destroyed everything great about CV and his article would have been nothing special. So I've still never published anyone else's stuff on my site, and in fact, under the "Update" line in my articles, it says that all articles are by me. I didn't want to have a byline on 100% of the articles, since seeing a byline implies that there are other authors.

On the other hand, I am (or at least was) the only guest author on WoO, for my now nearly 20-year-old article on Flip It, which I subsequently rewrote for my own site.

Dotty's 111 is in North Las Vegas. You don't include Henderson casinos because they aren't in "Las Vegas" but include the ones in North Las Vegas? North Las Vegas is just as much a separate municipality as Henderson and geographically is more distant. Barleys is three blocks from the Las Vegas city border. Luckys(Dotty's 111) is many miles from the city limits.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

To the best of my memory, you still hold that distinction.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

Very few convenience stores as most are only allowed 7 machines.

wouldnt what determines whether its a real casino or not, not have anything to do whether or not they had LIVE DEALERS dealing table games, but whether they had virtual stadium type table games or not? a casino can be all slots, and still have table games.

for example wild west has table games (virtual) while Eureka does not. so one is a casino and one is just a bar with slots.

Places like Eureka and Barleys might be called a slot parlor with a bar but calling them a bar with slots is inaccurate.

Well, this is embarrassing. I always thought North Las Vegas was just the northern part of Las Vegas, not a separate city. I live in what everyone here calls East Austin, but it's just the eastern part of Austin.

I'll remove Dotty's #111, and have a look at what other establishments I list which are on NLV and need to be removed.

I'll work on adding all establishments within LV with unrestricted licenses (>15 machines).
