    Me again.
    I'm now debating taking the bus to AC from Manhattan as, like some others have sad, Resortsworld NY seems less like a casino and more like a slot parlor.
    I would only make that trek for an infinitissimal stab at a life changing jackpot such as Megabucks or Wheel Of Fortune, and to a lesser extent some progressive jackpots of ~500k lie The Walking Dead and Willy Wonka.

    It seems impossible to find these jackpot levels for AC.
    For Las Vegas you find them within seconds. AC? Not a chance!
    Is this due to some legislation/advertisement embargo?

    If somebody here who was in AC recently or is currently there could throw some numbers at me I would appreciate it.
    Mostly thinking of playing at Borgata and maybe the Tropicana as well as Caesars.

    As a general question: is it safe to walk from the boardwalk to Borgata? (I might be underestimating the distance)

    Thank you all for your input in advance.

    As far as I know, it's the same levels as Nevada, because AC's multi-state progressive jackpots are linked to Nevada, Delaware, etc.

    I looked into it a little further and AC's multi-state slots are linked only with Nevada, so if you check the Nevada levels it should be the same. The jackpots are at the multimillion dollar level.

    It's not safe to walk from Boardwalk to Borgata,long walk to start with ,if you make it through the "hood" you still stand a chance of getting run over on rt 30.

    If he's a Total Rewards Platinum or higher member (or staying at a Total Rewards hotel), then the Total Rewards shuttle from the Boardwalk to the Marina (or vice versa) is free. If not, the jitney is rather inexpensive.

    Don't know the answer to the megabucks question. As for "distance", Borgata is NOT on the boardwalk in AC. The Casinos in AC are divided into 2 areas: the boardwalk and the Marina. You can walk along the boardwalk between all the "boardwalk" properties in a reasonable amount of time: perhaps 15-20 minutes end to end. However, you cannot walk between the boardwalk and the marina. The distance is just way too far. Borgata, the Golden Nugget and Harrahs are the 3 properties in the marina. They are not "close" to each other, but walking between them is possible if you don't mind a 15 minute walk. Hpe this helps
