    What are some of the pros and cons of some of those small off-strip casinos like Joanie's? Are they regulated to have the same payback as the big time casinos do? Do they offer free drinks? Where are some of the better ones?

    From all what I've read, they need to be regulated just like any other casino, but in Nevada that doesn't mean much since the minimum payback requirement on slots is only 75%. Any casino will be significantly above that threshold. The negatives to me are: Maximum 15 machines, so if it's busy, might struggle to find a spot. Also I hear these places are smoky as hell unless you pick a non-smoking location. You can also get free drinks. As a tourist though, I wouldn't be seen in one of these places for very long.

    I used to play at a "local's" Dottie's, in Reno; they had fullpay video poker from 5c-$5 (JoB/BP/NSUD) and they comped bottles of booze (get it and take it home)
    They also did actual "checks", for monthly bounceback, instead of freeplay or anything.
