The Meadows in Washington PA, is about 15 min north of 70.
Thank you all for your advice. I'm back from Asia. Wanted to get a chip from the Paradise Incheon, Korea but sadly did not have enough time.
Welcome back! Trip report?
And thanks to rdw4potus for the info on sac fox, etc but I did not even detour from I-70 for Prairie Band. I had a mind numbing 500+ miles drive from CO to Kansas City and just wanted to get to the hotel first ASAP.
I also find myself wanting to play longer when winning but then that's eating into my road/bed time... so at a few places I've had to buy in at Roulette for $11 or $15 and do a $10/$14 bet on dozen or column and run and go.
Tip: Definitely try to entice a friend to come along for a cross country drive. Tell them how great it's gonna be. I've done it four time already, twice alone. This is the third time alone.
Closed for good. Cripple Creek is pretty slow according to at least 2 dealers I asked. I think Laughlin is bustling in comparison. Well, when the Wildwood in Cripple Creek, which is the largest property there, has $1 craps with 25x odds all day you just know it's a slow town. Maybe busier on weekends, I don't know.
Oh wow. I was there on the night of January 1st, and on Jan 2nd. That was slow, but I thought it was just because those were holiday recovery days. but, craps sure wasn't $1 then. So things must really have slipped. That's a shame - Cripple Creek is a very cute little town, and casinos fill/filled all of downtown. Without the casinos, it'll get pretty depressing pretty fast.
