So I'm going to southern Delaware (not by choice) next week and I'm thinking about taking the ferry to Cape May and driving up to AC for a few hours to kill some time and keep the Vegas HET comp rooms coming into next year.

From vpfree2, it looks like Caesars has 9/6 DDB at $1 - can anybody verify that? Any other recommendations about the HET props there? I'll only have 3 or 4 hours to play...

Not much of HET has full pay VP in Atlantic City these days - Showboat has the most 9/6 JoB (8 machines) out of all the casinos up there. I can't verify the Caesar's one, as I haven't been there in a while.

Caesars still has a $.25 9/6 progressive (slow-moving meter) buy the Toga bar, I think. Showboat has 9/6, as does Bally's. Trump Plaza has a ton of 9/6 if you want to stray from the HET bosom. Check out the Asian gaming area at Caesars, too.

When I got to DE, there was an article in the local paper about recent casino openings, so I ended up going to Harrah's in Chester, PA, cause it was an hour closer than Atlantic City.

Harrah's Chester appears to have been built as an add-on to an existing racetrack. It's in a very industrial area, racetrack and entrance to the parking garage on the ground level, racebook on the 2nd level, casino on the 3rd.

The casino is about the size of a football field. Tons of slots and video poker (DDB was 9/5 at the $1 level). A sufficient number of table games (6 craps). Most of the craps table were $10 min.

I played $1 DDB VP for about a half hour with little success and moved to a "237" (237 ways to win) $2 max slot and made a little, then over to a $15 craps table and had a good 45 min run on a $500 buy in, then colored up plus $100 and spent 90 mins or so on a 25-cent Triple Diamond slot.

So killed about 4 hours, racked up some TR points. Staff and dealers were friendly.

be advised that ferry trip is no hop, skip and jump....

That's right, from DE, the Lewes - Cape May ferry takes 90 mins to get across and you have to show up 30 mins before it leaves, and it's 60 bucks.

I was in Dewey Beach, DE. It was only 2 hours to Chester. The drive-ferry-drive to Atlantic City would have been 3 hours each way, and I'd have been on the ferry's schedule.
