What do you play at the casino?

Was just in AC last night. Did pretty well on some roulette...pretty much all I stick with.

I play "lose money slowly enough that my 'free' drinks are super cheap."

Edit: Sometimes at cheap places that's the quarter video blackjack sitting at the bar. Other times I usually play blackjack. I don't really like gambling. When I'm in Vegas, it's for other reasons, like mountain biking. But there's always some casino time in the evenings. The quarter video thing works well if I just want to hang out with a few buddies, watch the game on TV, and drink a few beers. Easy to get several beers for super cheap that way - the tips end up being four or five times the cost of the beer, and ensure the beers keep coming.

Nothing ... I can't make myself open the wallet for something with the odds stacked against me. I wish I could enjoy it, as my wife does, but I've tried several times now. If I play something, it'd be Poker so that at least I feel like I have some control over the proceedings.

Blackjack. I prefer craps but often times I don't have enough money to play craps as it usually contains very wild swings of $100 or more even if you are playing minimums.

Oh, and when I get low on money I slow play nickle video blackjack and keep all my $1 for tips to keep the free drinks coming.

Mostly Texas Holdem. Blackjack and craps are fun as well, but I don't expect to win when I play those. Although if my wife dresses cute she has a good chance of getting tips on the craps table. I won a guy $600 rolling with her on my arm and he gave her a $25 chip.

Exactly my strategy. But at the bar so the beers come more quickly than if I were out on the floor.

Me three. Nickel slots. $20 bucks can last 3-4 hours.

$5 blackjack tables are my home.

I can usually walk in with $40 and walk out with that or more after 4 hours of gaming and a number of drinks on the house plus some good tips to the dealers.

blackjack

my buddies usually play some 7-card stud variation i think called some kind of caribbean name or something. there's so many pushes in that game that they can usually go for hours on very little money.

Poker (usually just TH tourneys, but occasionally some other stuff), blackjack, roulette, slots (just to kill time in lines usually). Actually I've always wanted to learn to play Baccarat. Maybe I'll go do that today.

my usual games: 2/3 nl texas hold em, single-deck blackjack, $10 min. blackjack (too many kids splitting 10's and taking dealers bust cards at $5 tables), and sports gaming. if the mood strikes me right and i have a fun group of friends with me, i might walk over to the craps tables. but i have a card room only a few miles away so thay's where i usually play the aforementioned games.

Craps is fun. There are some pretty good odds on a few of the bets too. I think they call it backing up your line bet after it has passed. That one has pretty good odds. There are some sucker bets on there too, so you'd need to study up a bit.

Craps is awesome. You can stay at the table with $100 for a couple hours and still walk away with ahead. It's also quite exciting when someone is on a lucky streak.

Sit back and watch some idiot put hundreds thru a slot, then when he's broke, I move in for the kill. It's amazing how many times I've scored that way over the years. :)

Slots are generally terrible for the player, so the key is observe and let someone else lose for a while.
