Playing Las Vegas — Games and Places

Planet Hollywood, video poker and a chocolate chip cookie -- that works for me.
Planet Hollywood, video poker and a chocolate chip cookie…that works for me.

I get asked this question a lot — “When you go to Las Vegas, what and where do you play?”  As I’ve written in other posts, I am mostly a video poker player so I always look for my favorite games with the best pay tables.  On The Strip in Las Vegas, you can find me at Planet Hollywood where they have the games I like — Spin Poker™ and Super Times Pay™ plus the multi-game All-Star Poker™ machines — and the pay tables are reasonable for what I’m playing.  For several reasons, “Planet Ho” just has a “vibe” that appeals to me.  I like the music and I really like the adjustable chairs.  The drink servers are friendly and pretty good about keeping me supplied with bottled water and the occasional glass of white wine.  Plus, when I’m ready to take a break and stretch my legs, there’s a warm chocolate chip cookie with my name on it at the Nestle Toll House Café in the connecting Miracle Mile Shops.
When I do play slots, I like the Hot Shot Progressive™ machines at Paris Las Vegas, Bally’s or MGM Grand while P.B. usually goes off in search of one of his favorites, Jackpot Party™.

If you’re looking for the games you like to play, Harrah’s has a nifty gadget on their website that allows you to find your favorite slot machine or video poker game at any of their casinos in Las Vegas or across the country.  Over at the IGT/Action Gaming site,, you can also do a search to find your favorite video poker variations and denominations at casinos throughout the U.S.

I’d love to know what and where you like to play in Vegas.
