    Sounds like you've been to both. Preference on either over the other?

    Good report. Thanks for sharing. Fun to see as we use to go to Joliet a few times a year. Been awhile now. Last few times just felt meh and couldn't win a thing which certainly adds to the meh factor. Your photos were great though. Actually made me think might want to try again. I always wish the Horseshoe Indiana had a hotel. Like the casino much better. We often hit it when at Joliet.

    Both of those are. Spin Poker is 1 to 9 lines. STP is 1 to 10 lines on a ten line unit.

    I agree the horseshoe is much better and bigger. Definitely more choices. But without a hotel it's tough for me since I have to drive almost 3 hours. I hope they add on at some point!

    I also have been to Bluechip but it's been almost 5 years and I've never stayed at the hotel there.

    Taking @tringlomane advice on the quarter machines. Playing spin poker, 1 line. Not hitting much but at least maintaining its so hard to not look at the other lines! :rolleyes2:

    I’ve been to four winds like two times, spent the night once. But the one time I spent the night, I won $5,500 on a pac man slot machine as I was walking to the parking garage to leave.

    I'm not hitting anything here so I'm packing up and driving over to 4winds. I will post some pics of the room, etc for anyone who is thinking of going.

    Hope your luck is better there!
    Casinos are always better during the day with less people.

    Made it to 4winds. It's been almost a year since I was here last so they gave me Jr. Suite. Probably wanting my business back. The hotel here is definitely more high end than harrah's. Sitting area, huge bathroom. 2 TV's, free water and coffee, and fridge plus microwave. Which is awesome! I used to come here all the time until I decided to work on getting diamond at CET.

    Oh and my view is nice too. They have a pool here. Another plus although I rarely use it.

    Going to try my luck. I'll report on food options later! [​IMG]

    I played my table free play on roulette and walked up $75. Then played Mississippi stud for almost 2 hours and walked up $75 there. Not bad so far! But now some food. Haven't eaten yet today. I decided on Hard Rock. It has a good menu here and I have $40 in comps for that. They also have an awesome steakhouse here, Copper Rock, if you want something more upscale. Their snack bar is also good and makes great pizza! More pics in a bit.

    Hard Rock was good as usual. It's hard to spend $40 on 1 person when you can't include alcohol. But I got potato skins, haystack salad (very good) and a piece of cheesecake. Most of this will come to the room with me. Lol[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Going to try some VP now. 4winds does NOT have great vp, sadly. 6/5 BP for quarters . May need to try dollars to get anything decent.

    Dollar paytables were a lot better, iirc. Last time I played there I think they had 8/5 DDB quick quads for pennies for shits and giggles. Oh double check the hundred play STP unit too. I want to say some of the pay tables bump at dimes or quarters. It might?? be 9/5 DDB? You should only have to play as little as one line.

    Hope your luck goes better! And I hear ya on just playing one line on Spin Poker. Hard to not imagine the other lines.

    I did find quarter 9/5 ddb. And on spin poker you can get 7/5 BP for a quarter. None of that matters though when you get dealt nothing. $150 later... Still nothing. Might look for that pennies QQ!

    Not finding the 100 QQ. Stp 100 but they are full so I'm playing triple wheel. Horrible pay table but at least I'm getting some play time and some spins. [​IMG][​IMG]
