I highly recommend Monticello Casino if you are a serious, regular slot player. I have hit 3 big jackpots (over 25K each) in a 10 year period and thank Goodness they do take out the taxes. I hit once in AC at the Borgata for 12K and was sorry at tax time. AC is great for comps but I rarely see big wins.

I spend 2 months a year at AC and 10 months a year at Monticello. If you play with the Player's Card everything seems to balance out in the long run. I have tried the PA casinos (Mohegan Sun and Mount Airy) and thought they were the absolute worst, tightest machines. I find it hard to believe they are Class III machines.

Yes, Monticello slots are VGM's or Class II machines but MANY of them are progressives which other casinos do not have. It's safe, clean and you can always find a slot attendant. The Buffet is very good but the Food Court has just downsized. Still you can get great tasting Jewish style Deli subs. It also offers live harness racing right out the back doors of the casino Mon thru Thurs.
