I am going to AC and wanted some feedback on casinos. I am deciding between the Borgata and Harrah's. Does anyone have any comments - good or bad on them?

I am in my 50s and only go to AC once or twice a year. I am not looking for drinking or clubbing. I am looking for a nice place to hand out and gamble with nice restaurants, nice service and nice people/gamblers to be around. I would not mind getting some comps for my play.

I mainly play Pai Gow Tiles, so want a casino that has that. If you have suggestions for other good casinos, let me know. However, with the decline in AC, I actually think Borgata may be the only good one left.

If you have comments on Borgata, Harrah's or any other casino you recommend, I would appreciate it. Thanks.

I like Harrahs, it's perfectly acceptable. Mind you, I like the marina tower, as it is compable for me with no extra charge, has a nice view if facing the marina. It is totally run down, the rooms are sure to have a problem or two, but has one benefit I like. The elevators are straight off the gaming floor. If it hadn't been the first place I stayed at in Atlantic City, I might not like it as much. I like the ambience being on Harrahs gaming floor, but could just be sentimental.

Borgata is definitely the tops in AC. I like visiting there, but some might say, overrated. Think it keeps losing a step here and there, but still above the competition. You'll probably be happiest there based on your wishes. Pai gai tiles I have no idea about anywhere.
Looks like sh!t just got imaginary!

I suppose it depends on what you are looking for, really. There can be almost no question that Borgata is objectively the nicer of the two casinos, and they also do tier matching, but I don't know how far that extends geographically. They might not even do the tier matching anymore, but if they got rid of it, that would be a pretty new development.

When it comes to comps, what sort of comps do you want? Are you just looking to get RFB comps, or are you hoping to score some free play and/or match play for future visits? Where you are going to want to go is going to vary greatly based on that.

I'm afraid I don't know anything about who might have PGT.

If you regularly visit, or may visit, casinos in other geographical locations in which CET has a presence, they'll often use your action at one property as a basis to give you room (and perhaps other comps) in advance at other properties. That's somewhat unique to CET, but not entirely, though they are certainly the most geographically spread out casino company to have such reciprocity.

I go to AC two or three times a year.

I like Caesars and stay in the Centurion Tower (the newer of the hotels). They have good room rates and comps while staying. There are three really good restaurants, including a new restaurant that opened about a year and a half ago from Gordon Ramsey.

I've done well at the craps tables there every time I've gone and they have fire bets.

They have Pai Gow Tiles, Fortune Pai Gow and EZ Pai Gow tables.

I've had zero issues playing here and it's been a fun experience every time.

I frequent AC and can tell you that The Borgata is the Best... hands down. If you want a nice atmosphere with upscale customers and great restaurants, The Borgata is your place. Caesars is second on my list. Plenty of restaurants in the casino and across the walkway on the Boardwalk Pier. If you are taking a companion, he/she will definitely like either casino. Harrahs gets a little young and loud on weekends with their Pool Lounge.

I have read bad reviews about Harrah's, so I am inlined to advise you to go with Borgata. ;)
Guy "won" less than his bet and the slot machine had the audacity to tell him he got a big win! SMH! Also, the Nintendo cartridge is so much more important than the Nintendo console. Without the cartridge, the Nintendo console is just a useless box.

Borgata has PGT and very nice dealers. As for comps, I do not know what RFB comps are. I do not go very often, so I need a place that will watch my play and comp me while I am there. I doubt Borgata will do that. They are a little pretentious. They do comp my rooms. I must be on some list, because I can get the free room just by logging in and making a reservation. I guess I should stick with Borgata, but wasn't sure if there was a better place in AC.

Those are the two nicest places in AC. We prefer Borgata, but the last time we were at Harrah's they gave us the penthouse suite, so we are kinda partial to them now.
