USA Today is holding a Best Casino Hotel in the U.S. contest. Scroll down to the “Experts” section and check out this forum’s very own Michael Shackleford’s bio.

It seems like a contradiction. The contest is "Best Casino" while the voting asks for your "Favorite Casino".

In my case those are completely different.

The best hotel might not necessarily be attached to the best casino.

Also, how do you quantify the "best", for either? A casino that offers 3;2 and not 6:5, 3x4x5 or 100X on craps and/or so-so rooms vs. nicer ones for similar prices. It's a 2 part question and a hard call.

These things with public votes are popularity contests, not a real judgment of the "best"...

Hell, Taco bell was just named "Best Mexican Restaurant Brand in US"...
