The Orleans just got some brand new penny slots that were a blast. The Star War Machines. When we we there a few weeks ago they were being installed, and we were among the first to play them. They are located back by the Subway restaurant if you happen to be at The Orleans.

I'm also flying to Vegas on Friday to meet my sister who is driving in from Utah...girl's weekend in Vegas to see Alan Jackson in concert!! Should be a lotta fun!

Hubby will be going to Disneyland w/the boys while I'm gone, so I'm sure he'll have fun! We also have a cruise planned for later this year plus a land vacation at an all-inclusive...

Hopefully, Paul, we'll both win the BIG jackpot rather than lose it! And yes, I love those penny machines too!

Enjoy!

Peggy and I will be staying at the Monte Carlo. We are minnows in Vegas, so we get nothing free from the casinos.

Paul and Jean, Have a great time in Vegas. Don't be afraid to come back and tell us if you strike it rich and are treating the CM family to a cruise. :-)

Hi Laurie,

Maybe I can answer some of your questions. We go to Las Vegas about 3-4 times a year. We were at the Orleans for 8 days in late March. The penny slots are very popular there. They have a great variety. There are some new ones I think they are called the Billionaire--it is located near the Subway Restaurant. If I remember correctly it had 60 lines and the max play might be x 10 making it about $6 a pull. Those machines are near the new Star Wars Penny Slots. The Star Wars slots have 30 lines and the max play is probably 10 per line also. The Star Wars have lots of lights flashing and loud noise so prepare yourself! When we were there in November the popular penny slots were Men In Black. The Men In Black machines stayed busy in March, but they didn't seem to be paying off as well in November. Another new slot that was fun was called 18 wheeler it had 30 or 40 lines you could play. Those were located near the escalators going up to the cinema. All of the penny slots that I enjoy playing have bonus rounds that take you to a second screen. They are all just a lot of fun. Another popular group is called the Millionairser (these are located along the wall before you go into the corridor leading to the hotel rooms.). Most people that play the penny slots seems to play anywhere from 45 cents a pull up to around $2 to $3 a pull. Some of the older penny machines have nine lines with a max bet of x10. The newer slots they are bringing in seem to average around 20 lines. Some of the ones I enjoyed were the Alien, The Twilight Zone, The Puzzler, Twin Dolphins, Jade, etc. Some of the machines that are older that seem to pay off regularly are the Crocodile, Big Tipper, X Marks the Spot. All those are located in one area. You will have no trouble finding them. There are many other great penny slots that we enjoy playing there. You will have so much fun!

The Orleans also has quite a few restaurants that are good. If you like Mexican food
Don Miguels is the best. We always eat there several times during our stay. There is a Steakhouse, Italian, a general cafe type restaurant, a Subway, etc. They also have a popular buffet. A lot of the locals go there regularly.

Be sure and sign up for the player's card at the Orleans. You can earn at least $25 worth of freebies the first day. When you check in they will give you a coupon book
that can be used in the hotel. Free drinks, buffets, etc.

Anyway, enjoy your trip and good luck!!! Have fun. I think I'm having casino withdrawals right now. I'm looking forward to the casinos on the Destiny and Adventure of the Seas.

There is a law enforcement race going on in Vegas this weekend called Baker to Vegas, so I'm sure there will be a lot of partying afterwards.

Hope everyone has a great time! WIN WIN WIN

The Excalibur has also put in more penny slots. After a while all these casinos look alike to me. But I think my husband liked the penny slots over at the Luxor. New York New York and MGM Grand don't seem to have as many penny slots.
