Someone needs to make a REAL list that just includes slots and table games. Bingo and racetracks shouldn't count because that's mostly empty space and seats.

Does anybody really care about how big the gaming floor is anyway, other than executives? If a casino has the games I like to play, I'll play there, period. I don't care if it's 10,000 sq/feet or 500,000 sq/ft. That is not a selling point to me by any stretch of the imagination.

Maybe this list factors in things like restaurants square footage , parking lot size, theatres ?

Itís horribly inaccurate

I'm sure it is inaccurate but I would follow TigerWu's advice. How many games they have that you want to play. How many tables are staffed, what are the betting limits, etc. No matter how many other tables may exist you can only play at one at a time.

Winstar shouldn't be on the list at all because Oklahoma casinos aren't "real" casinos.



How so? It's at least 50/50 Class II/Class III and probably moving more in the Class III direction... so how is that not a casino.

By the way, to walk from one end of the casino to the other and back is one mile.

Haha!!! What an awful list!

For giggles, I decided to come up with ten casinos bigger than Rivers off the top of my head and went 10/10, including The Meadows, which the list says is smaller than Rivers.

Are they giving Rivers credit for the damn parking garage? Maybe. Thereís nowhere to park outdoors, really, so they have a several story attached parking garage.

MGM is 171,500 sq/ft of gaming according to Wikipedia.

To everyone saying some of these are wrong, I think they're including the bingo halls in the size of these, which I think is BS.



Rivers and Meadows have no bingo hall. However, I do think bingo halls are listed as total gambling space.

LOL at the thought that Rivers Pittsburgh has more gaming space than Foxwoods or Mohegan. This list is laughably wrong.

Those of you that have never been to the big Winstar are missing out. It is a spectacle just to see.

I'm mostly kidding. I only said that because they've traditionally had crappy games with crappy rules.

They are slowly starting to get better, though, what with the recent addition of craps and roulette.

Now if we could only get rid of the stupid ante rules...
