Going to Caesars AC on 29th for four nights.  Haven't been since May. Are there any new VP machines at any of the Caesars properties?  Will probably play mostly at Caesars and Bally's.  Who's having the best luck and where?

My last trip to AC I stayed at the Borgata. We went to Ceasar`s and Bally`s to use a coupon for the buffet and the players club ( That`s right the players club). I didn`t notice any new VP machines that were put in. They did rearrange some of the machines on the 1st floor up by the keno area.

Now that Harrah`s property are charging addmission to the players club ( $10 rewards  points per person). People are not going into the clubs. So they are giving coupons out in the mail.

Is the Golden Nugget open for gambling? 
 
I thought once you reached 25,000 tier score you (and one guest) would be able to use the Diamond Lounge for free?

Ava & Noma: As far as I know the Golden Nugget didn`t close for renovations. 

You may be correct ( 25,000 tier pts. ) for players who reach that level. I am diamond but my Tier pts aren`t that high.

Jim:  How was the food in the Diamond Lounge at Caesars since the supposed upgrade.  Is it really much of an upgrade or just another way to cut expenses by charging Diamond members between 11,000 and 25,000 points $10.  I have coupons also and plan to check it out.  The only time we use the lounge is usually mid afternoon to catch a snack between gaming.  But I guess even that is too much for them to bare.  I mean, even if you are the bare minimum diamond member at 11,000, your VP play coin in would equate to $110,000.  Not enough to rate a dry sandwich I guess.

The food is fair in The Diamond Lounge at Ceasar`s and Bally`s. On a Scale from 1 -10 I`ll give it a 6.  I think that the quality of the food is about the same. My Tier score is 11,000 the minimium because most of my play is at my favorite casino is the Borgata .. IMO the Amphoria Lounge is the best players Lounge in AC.  We also use the Diamond Lounge for lunch and the Amphoria for dinner.

Have you ever been to the Borgata in the Amphoria Lounge. If you haven`t I suggest to check it out. Thumbs%20UpThumbs%20Up
 
If your near Harrah`s in Chester, PA. They don`t charge the $10 rewards points.

I just came back from the Borgata and had pretty good luck. Hit two 200.00 jackpots. Guy playing next to me hit for 8,000 dollars playing double double bp. However, after he won, all of the machines were shut down in the bank except for the one I was playing but when I got up, they shut mine down also. Anyone know why?

 Congratulation on your jackpots. Where in the Borgata were you playing? They have been taking a lot of machines out and replacing them with 1 machines. The end of last year they removed every machine I hit a jackpot on.  Unhappy Last week when I was there they put 3 of them back. I guess enough people complained. I complained to my host  and a slot supervisor.  I guess they have to pay for the room renovation that are being done.

As far as the quality of food in the Caesars AC Diamond Lounges is concerned, I beg to differ. While they promised to improve the overall food quality and selection when they imposed the $10 admission fee last year to Diamond members below 25,000 tier points, I haven't seen any real upgrade in either (if anything, there has been a marked decline in culinary quality, especially at the carving station and shrinking size of the shrimp cocktails -- if they even have any). Despite a couple of complaints I lodged with Caesars Customer Service about a lack of cleanliness and other general service issues, not much has been addressed. Caesars itself still has the best Diamond Lounge IMO, but even that one has slipped a notch or two. The Bally's DL is mediocre at best, and they have gradually been cutting hours at all of the AC Diamond Lounges. That said, none of this is all that surprising in light of the financial pressure Caesars has been under subsequent to the buyout in 2008.

Doris, maybe I should try the Harrah's lounge -- have not been there yet. As a bus person I rarely make it away from the Boardwalk.

location of the poker machines I was playing was when you first enter the Borgata, you turn right past the MyBorgata comp desk past the restrooms about 30 feet on the left near the cashier's cage. Will be going again on the 16th and am anxious to see if they are still there.

I was able to get a room comped at the tropicana on July 3rd. Nobody else would give me a room. I gambled and ate at the borgata . Itzakaya...just love the food there.  Took a walk on the boardwalk on July 4th and stopped in Trump Plaza, was there for 15 minutes, played 40.00 in two different slots and was so turned off by the filthy machines and the old red white and blue machine I was playing that with each spin made a churning noise. I think they should close this place. It was horrific.

It is sad to see what has happened to that place. Donald Trump only owns about a 10% of Trump Entertainment. I wouldn`t want my name on that building because of the way they run that business.  There is a rumour that they want to sell the Plaza. Did you see the fireworks on July 4th. AOL travel rated it  #2 in the country.   mhtml:%7bEEFB3465-C226-4549-B771-4CBEF9F37E47%7dmid://00000110/!x-usc:http://news.travel.aol.com/2011/06/28/july-4th-fireworks-15-of-the-biggest-shows-in-america-ranked-p/ - http://news.travel.aol.com/2011/06/28/july-4th-fireworks-15-of-the-biggest-shows-in-america-ranked-p/ .

Heading down to Harrahs AC on Tuesday for a few days of "VP pleasure".  Searched VP free for any good DW paytables and could not find.  Any suggestions ?

Try Resorts, on the boardwalk next to the Taj, they have a whole crapload of VP machines with a variety of paytables, most of which are slightly better than almost everyone else in AC.   For instance, they have the typical 8/5 JOB on all their vp machine menus, but they ALSO have 8/5 Bonus poker on all the exact same menus .... I never actually played Deuces wild at resorts but I think i noticed their paytables are better than anything else you might find.  Just take the JITNEY vanline over to the boardwalk from Harrahs.
 
And while you are at Resorts, I highly recomend the Burger Bar (upstairs @Galaghers) for a snack or meal, and make sure you try the Coconut shrimp appetizer, it rules.

 I hit this last year at Harrah's AC. This row of machine's are across from the main isle of the card center a couple of rows in. There`s a row vp 3 tier progressive machine behind you when you sit at these machines.

 
 
I`ll be at the Borgata on Wednesday & Thursday. I like the variety of types of deuces wild machines there. The machine below is at the Borgata
 
GOOD LUCK Thumbs%20Up

Burglar thanks for the reply. Had Resorts on the list for BP. Sometimes need a change from DDB.
JDW.  Thanks also.  Will check them out.  Probably be at the Borgata on Wed.

I'm just wondering, you got a comp room at the Tropicana but you played in other casinos? Don't you think you should play at the casino where you get your free room? If you just get a free room and play elsewhere, they're going to think twice about giving you a free room the next time.

This has been my experience anyway.
