My home base was Mirage for many years. I've done well there, but not always. First time I had a decent 3 night offer from Bellagio I switched. I have not done well the last few trips there. I realize it is gambling and you are not always going to come out ahead due to many factors. I was thinking of jumping ship and checking out what Cosmo might offer (thanks to this board). I'm going for a birthday trip and Bellagio offered some extras that convinced me to not change my venue. Do you feel that all casinos on the strip have about the same rate of return? I plan mainly $1-$10 machines with some fun pennies when I'm in the mood. I play 90% where I stay. I also play BJ and craps but not enough to be noticed. I don't chase comps, just have a fun time. I just wonder if I could improve my odds by staying somewhere else. What are your thoughts/experiences?
