I really have no idea on how to even estimate how many casinos that I have been to. Probably between 200 and 400.

I think I am only in the 50-75 range. There are casinos in Vegas that I still have never been in.

So Washington has over 100 casinos in it? All with table games, or are these just a store with slots in them?

How can they make money with all that competition?

Actually the opposite - the majority of casinos in WA state are only table games and poker, and I believe they are limited to 15 tables. No machines, no dice, no wheels. Only card games (sometimes they are called card rooms instead of casinos for this reason). Because of the table limit, there are many, MANY of these small casinos and plenty of players to go around since there are limited seats.

I'm not intimately familiar with the gambling laws, but I believe this is what is allowed on non-tribal land. There are also a bunch of tribal casinos which have full Vegas-style gaming (cards in addition to craps, roulette, slots, etc.). Although there is no true VP in even the tribal casinos, they are all VLTs (video lottery terminals).

It depends on how you count them.

Does Wynn & Encore count as two?

Does Imperial Palace, Quad and Linq count as three?

Frankly, I don't know how many I've been to. But I do have a data base of my casino chip collection. 331 chips with a total face value of $896, from a total of 102 casinos. 66 of the casinos are in the Vegas area.
And it occurs to me that I havenít updated it in a while.

So, based on all that, I selected 100+ in the poll.

Yes a lot of them were cardrooms,some with only 3 or 4 tables,some had 15 tables and what was strange was they allowed dealers to gamble on the tables after ,or before they worked their shift.
I actually was playing with a dealer ,he got tapped out for the end of his shift,put his coat on,and walked right around and sat down and started playing on the same table he had been dealing on.Very Strange

Simple question. How many different casinos have you been in?



I can now officially state that I've been in at least 101 casinos! (Not that anyone cares, but you asked!)

I created a list by region, and I counted only true casinos that I clearly remember visiting (not including cardrooms, which would bump it way past 100), though I did count Dotty's locations. I didn't count places like Golden Nugget, which I've probably visited, but don't have a memory of doing anything there. And I didn't count cruise ships, tiki bars, or the CVS Pharmacy.

Reno/Lake Tahoe: 32
Las Vegas: 43
California: 13
Other U.S.: 7
Canada: 2
Europe/Asia: 5
