I recently enjoyed a two night stay at Harrah's AC but was disappointed to find that my favorite bar top VP machines require a 50-cent minimum bet with the max bet skipping the 4000 threshold and jumping to 8000. Very annoying as those machines are tight to begin with -- don't think I've hit anything better than three of a kind on them. Worse still was the $5 per bet machine at the end of the bar that took $300 of mine in less than 30 minutes. Further, I felt like the VP machines at Harrah's were tight as hell. I managed an impressive 9 4OAKS during my stay but I couldn't hit a Royal for the life of me. Anyone else having similar experiences? I wonder if CET is trying too hard to milk the cow and it's now affecting how people play. In fact, the only excitement I saw came from people at the tables. All-in-all, I netted negative 2200, but the trip was worth it. I hit my goal of one thousand tier credits per day and met great people. First solo "vacation" in AC and I gotta say I don't know why people give AC such a hard time. It was lively and energetic and the food was great. I'm looking forward to my next visit!
