    How would you rate casino slot selection from best to worst? I'll rank mine, but only on casinos that I have played enough in to have a good idea of the assortment of slots.

    Bellagio

    Aria

    Venetian

    MGM

    New York New York

    Mandalay Bay

    Mirage


    I really think MB and Mirage's slot selection is weak. I was very disappointed when I gambled at MB for the first time last trip.

    I am a slot slut. I have to think hard on this.

    Bellagio, V/P,MGM, NYNY, MB and Mirage all have a TON of slots.

    Aria is a bit different since so many are the new video or hybrid video/reel things.

    Really, the others have so many slots, I never thought one having a better selection that another.

    For the casinos I've played at in the last 3 years, it would be

    The haves
    Bellagio
    Aria
    Venetian/Palazzo
    Wynn/Encore
    MGM Grand
    Caesar's
    Mandalay Bay


    The have not's
    Monte Carlo
    Harrah's
    Flamingo
    Excalibur

    I would go to Fremont Street for the best selection. Payoffs seem more frequent there as well. You can also play with coins in a few places.

    I can't remember the last time I had a decent win on the Strip.

    I find the casinos are pretty different from each other as far as what slots they carry and so I don't really have a static "whats best" list because it depends on what I am looking for at the time.

    Like using the list from the original email:
    Bellagio
    Aria
    Venetian
    MGM
    New York New York
    Mandalay Bay
    Mirage


    I would describe those places as:

    Bellagio: they carry a wide variety and well rounded selection of slots with a specialization on WMS machines. Can usually find some of the newest WMS games here first.

    Aria:has the best selection of IGT/High5 slot machines in Las Vegas and is the best place to find their newest games.

    Venetian: Machines are pretty packed in on the slot floor so can feel claustrophobic some times. Usually has the best selection of Konami machines and carries a lot of games from smaller slot manufacturers so you will often see stuff here that you might not see everywhere.

    MGM: lots of machines and lots of old machines. Good place to go to find older games you don't see in every casino any more. They also get lots of slots from High5 and Atronic before other MLife casinos.

    New York New York: great place to find new and old Atronic machines and the big (in terms of floor space used) machines from other companies, so lots of machines with those small and group progressives.

    Mandalay Bay: A well rounded selection of slots, lots of stuff from IGT/High5 and WMS both new and old here.

    Mirage: of this list its the worst place to go for the newest slot machines from any manufacturer, but has the best selection of older WMS slot machines if you are looking for some of their classic machines.

    If I want to see the "latest and greatest", it would be V/P, Aria, or Bellagio.

    It typically take 2-6 months for new slot machines to make it to Fremont St.

    However, for payouts, that's quite a different story. I find that my money goes "a lot" farther on Fremont St.

    I only stay at CET but will say that MGM places do have the better selection of slots especially when it comes to the newest games.
    In fact, MGM seems to have replaced an entire section with nothing but new slot machines.

    CET also will carry the newer machine but they tend to be smaller in numbers and scattered about.

    I know I'm a b*tch about things like this, but my problem with many of the newer games is that they are so-called "penny" slots but the minimum per spin is the better part of a dollar. I actually saw one the other day where the minimum was 200 credits! I enjoy it best when a spin is 25 cents or less.

    Having said that, the most fun ones for me are those that have semi frequent bonus rounds and, of course, those I win on. I've found that I do best and enjoy it most on many of the old(er) IGT and WMS video machines.

    Now one thing I have noticed is that often, not always, very prominently placed "Newest Slots Here" machines will pay better right when they first introduce them.

    As far as casinos where I like the slot selection, Sams Town and Orleans are those I think of immediately. (Too bad Sams Town is so far out!) Gold Coast has a very good selection. Ditto with Aliante, and ditto with the comment about it being in the middle of nowhere. Downtown seems to have a good slot selection, with one of the only remaining Sigma Derby tables in the known universe.

    I'm disappointed with Flamingo, Bally's, Caesars, Rio, as they have very obviously removed many many of the machines I like! :(

    I would say on the "old" side for a Strip casino, but I haven't played a ton there to judge their payback. Their video poker is also nothing to talk about. I like staying at MC (especially when the pool is open), but I really don't gamble there at all.
