The question: Do indian casinos have decent games? Valley View is one of the several tribal casinos in the area, and, based on others' reports, has some of the better slots and VP and a really good buffet. The sun was not up at 6:00 A.M., but it's time to get up anyway: there's a bus leaving for the casino a little more than an hour. Seats were pretty comfy but totally full after the fourth stop on the way there. We arrived at 10:10 in the morning and went to a special area just for those riding "junket buses" like the one shown above. There are two separate casinos: smoking and non-smoking. The latter is healthier, less busy, has better lighting, and has... A full-pay BPDW machine! Really? Right now it's a 101% game. Unfortunately, I only got to play a few hands, but this was the place to be the 5 hours we were there. After about 10:30, an older lady was on the machine for the rest of the day. Believe me, I was waiting to get on it, but she was not leaving (and was circling during the time I was there!) Instead, there was a 99.73% NSUD "spin poker" machine in the smoking area. Their comps (0.20% on VP) and the fact that it was a promo day made this a full pay machine too, but COUGH COUGH the smoke was terrible, so I played about 20 hands and left. Before checking out the buffet, I played some quick hit at 5c per spin and noticed that a man two machines to my left had hit a progressive for $1500 by getting 8 "quick hits" earlier. He was still waiting on his HP, but there were at least two other people waiting on HPs too. It turned out lines were everywhere. At the cafe (notice how only ONE person is working the register)... ... and at the buffet But of all the lines there, the buffet was worth waiting for since it was $10 for all the steak and seafood you could eat. (Of course I was "too good" for the line, didn't wait, and missed out.) So instead of eating like a king, I went a la carte and harpooned my lunch: from the giant aquarium ... and was then strongly hinted to stop taking pictures by a security guard. So after about 10 free sodas at their bottomless soda fountain and some penny and nickel slots, it was time to head home. Thanks for reading!
