    My wife and I are doing a 4 day vacation tomorrow thru Thursday in Mystic, CT. I am guessing we will visit one or both casinos while we are there. She does Slots and I prefer VP. I realize they are Indian casinos...is one better than the other regarding VP pay tables? Anything in either casino worth seeing?

    They're both about the same for pay tables.... Foxwoods is spread out in 4 or 5 casino areas with restaurants and shopping areas in the rest.
    I prefer Mohegan... it has two casino areas with a mall in between them. The older area is a bit dark while the new area is much brighter.
    Both places are pretty huge and as big as anything in Vegas, but it's not the same vibe.

    mohegan is more "vegas" resort style (but huge by vegas standards) with more to see, foxwoods is more like a smokey mall..

    If you choose Foxwoods keep checking around. I was playing 9/5 DDB yesterday but I saw a bunch of 8/5's. I don't play much vp at Mohegan (because they don't give you much towards tier for it) so I don't remember the payables, but I prefer it overall to Foxwoods. They aren't bad as far as Indian casinos go, so go and have fun!

    If you're looking for something else to do, check out the Submarine Museum in Groton.

    Old Mystic Seaport is a way better use of your time than either hole. I live 90 minutes from them. I haven't been to either in more than eight years. I'd rather see both of them close. Worst gambling experiences ever and I frequented both quite a bit when they first opened.

    We are going specifically for the Seaport, beaches, Lobster dinners etc.; maybe the Aquarium (at $35pp it seems a bit expensive,,,we've seen Aquariums). I am definitely going to the museum at Groton. If we do a casino, it will be for a single visit with a $100 bankroll...just to check the place out...probably do a visit to the Indian Museum while we are there. :)

    Add me to the list of Lenny & Joe's fans. But TO ME, it is a bit far from MS to make a special trip to go there (not sure how far it is from Foxwoods). Not telling you not to go but just want you to be aware that it isn't a 5 minute drive.
