    Maybe it is just me, but I like a comfortable stool when I play slots. Here are some random stool thoughts.
    • Paris - Look nice, but not comfortable
    • PH - Comfy
    • Mirage - not comfortable, in fact some dont even have backs
    • Harrahs - Very comfortable
    • Flamingo - Comfy

    In general MGM properties and the older CET properties are usually more comfortable. What are your thoughts? Am I the only one that cares? lol

    I thought the ones at the Flamingo and Harrah's were the most comfy when I was there last year. I agree ~ the CET properties seem to have the best. I didn't care for the ones at the MGM or TI at all.

    Don't recall encountering any uncomfortable chairs.
    Maybe if you drink enough nothing is that uncomfortable. :beer:

    Many of the newer machines have their own chairs so soon it won't be which casino but which machines.

    I find height important to my comfort. CP use to have ones that were too high. I always preferred the old slant top machines for comfort. To be honest I forgot which casinos have what. Swivel are nice.

    So glad you brought this up!! One of my pet peeves is chairs that don't match the game, for instance high chairs for slant tops and low chairs for uprights.

    I found that Paris chairs were all the same so for some games they worked, and for others they suck. PHo is about the same. Bally's suck as they are old and broken down, much like the rooms. Flamingo, again, depended on what you were playing whether or not the height worked. I wasn't impressed with any of the CET chairs.


    The best I found were at Palazzo/Venetian as they all have the lever to adjust the height. I also found the Wynn chairs (and the casino floor as a whole) to be extremely comfortable.

    Although I didn't hit any MLIfe properties this trip, in the past I recall being very comfortable at Aria, but not so much at Monte Carlo. Oddly, I think I found Luxor to be comfortable as well.

    I probably play about 12 hours a day, so at the end of a day of play I can have a pretty sore back & neck if I have been playing in crappy chairs. It really does make a difference!!

    Another vote for Wynn. I agree, comfortable chairs make a huge difference as to how long I'll hang out at a machine.

    I seldom fine uncomfortable ones anywhere.

    The ones I like best are the ones that are adjustable, reach under the seat with your right hand and use the lever.

    Worst are those which are so far back from the machine that you need to really reach.

    Those chairs are great on the butt, but horrible on the back. If I lean back to support my back, I can't reach the buttons well. But, I still play there for the good atmosphere and awesome Bloody Mary.

    The built-in chairs that have bass speakers in them, live the Star Trek, Time Machine, and Oz games. Like getting a massage as you play.

    I don't have favorite chairs, but there are some I don't like:

    Mirage: most of their "chairs" are actually stools. I like having a back on my chair.

    Bellagio: most of their chairs are fixed to the machine. Sometimes I like to move my chair back, sometimes I like to sit close, sometimes I want to sit between two machines if I am playing machines side by side or my wife is playing next to me... but at Bellagio you don't get a choice because the chair is stuck in its one spot, attached to the machine by a metal plate on the floor.
