Let it Ride and Big Six. Some of the blackjack tables have Match The Dealer with a pay schedule of 3,6,14,17,and 28 to 1.

I've never been there because it had always been a Class II joint. I get the impression you mostly play blackjack (1BB), but do you know if they replaced their Class II machines with Class III machines?

Were they all class II? They had ShuffleMaster Blackjack and Roulette and eventually Craps where lots of players could be betting different outcomes so I don't even know how you could do that as a Class II.

I don't know, I've never been there. Presumably virtual roulette/craps/blackjack machines weren't Class II. It is video poker that I'm more interested in, although I doubt a small tribal casino would offer good VP even if it could offer Class III games.

VLTs? The place is run by the Rhode Island State Lottery. I think the information may be on it's web site.

There's no listing for this casino at VPFree, so if there were/are VP machines I guess they aren't very good. But, to be clear, this is NOT a small tribal casino. There are 4700 machines on a gaming floor that is 250,000-400,000 sqft (depending on how the horse track space is accounted for)

Oh, I thought it was tribally operated. Thanks for the correction.

I must say, I don't like this trend of blurring the line between state-run lotteries and casinos, or lotteries building casino-like places. The Sands in Bethlehem PA has lottery ticket vending machines in the food court. The non-tribal casinos in NY are merely extensions of the NY Lottery. Twin River is an extension of the RI Lottery.

The reason I don't like this is because state lotteries typically offer lousy games that return between 25% and 75%. How long before the games in lottery-owned-and-operated "casinos" start dropping the returns on their VLTs to 75%...60%...50%...40%...30%...25% once they realize how much profit they've been missing out on?

there are also lotto sales terminals at Parx, Valley Forge, Harrah's Philly, and Mount Airy. And the Ontario Lottery runs most of their casinos as well.
