    Okay, I've never seen the term cico, but am meaning coin in coin out machines.

    I'm kinda freaking after reading a recent review where a visitor was praising "all the nostalgic coin-in machines at MSS". I realize that at any given downtown casino one might run across cico machines, but overall aren't they mostly tito? Mostly more modern?

    We're staying downtown, MSS, and if downtown casinos in general have a higher percentage of cico machines rather than titos, then I have made a terrible mistake.

    No fears. TITO machines vastly out number CICO machines downtown. You'll be fine. The coin in machines will be obvious...

    Calm down Lucille... isn't there a song with that title.

    Many down-town casinos have a small percentage of CICO machines for nostalgic purposes for older clientele especially elderly Hawaiian ladies and Canadians like Flusher. Other than that the vast majority are TITO.

    But they do not have $35.00 hamburgers or $12.00 dollar Heineken's either. If you want that there are a few hipster bars on the East side of Fremont Street that will over-charge you for this stuff?

    Thanks guys. I'm feeling better about my choices. And squidward, well, if there isn't yet a song called "Calm Down Lucille" then there darn well should be! I'm tweeting Garth about it very soon.....

    That song was written by BB King after an argument with his guitar.
