For those of you who know me, you know that I am not one to waste money. In fact I hate to spend money on almost anything. I am the type of person who will try to never spend more the $20 on a pair of shoes or jeans. I will go to the thrift store, discount warehouse or any place else I can get a bargain.
BUT every once in a while, at the most twice a year, I will reward myself for all the excellent "Mommy work" that I do and head over to the casino. I leave my debit cards at home and only take $30 with me. Once that is gone I leave and come home. Oh, and for those who really know me, they know that I can make that $30 last for hours playing the penny slots.
I never go to win. I never expect to hit the jack pot. I just go to have fun, adult fun. I enjoy the dim lights and the sounds of the slot machines.
So here is my new local casino. It is a slot parlor really since they do not have any live table games. That is ok for me since I have yet to play any table games. I like my slots, my penny slots. To learn more about this casino click here Casino at Ocean Downs
There is only one problem. There are NO real penny slots any more, at least not at this casino. I have to be honest and say that I did not look around too much since any walking right now is very painful but I didn't see one machine that was a true penny slot!
Ok, they all say they are penny slots but they all have a "minimum" bet that is anywhere from $0.20 to $1.00. Sorry but for me that is NOT a penny slot machine. If I want to play a quarter machine I will go sit at one.
So this is a bad picture but I didn't want to pull out my big camera so I took it with my cell phone. Right under the 1 cent sign it says that there is a minimum $.20 bet.
So beyond this I was impressed with the little bit I saw.
Along with the slot parlor they have live horse racing during the summer season. This is something that I really want to go watch.
The outside seating looks, OK .
I didn't walk up to the inside area where they are the simulcasting.
Oh, there is NO smoking inside but they do try to make those who do smoke comfortable no mater what the weather.
These are super hot heaters that are mounted outside in their designated smoking area. I stood out there for a few minutes and it was like summer time.
So I only stayed about an hour for my first time there. I had been out all morning in OC watching the coast guard helicopter in a new tower for the inlet ((( go here Living on the Eastern Shore Blog to read all about that adventure)). I will go back again and hopefully this time I will be in less pain and able to walk around more and find a real penny slot. Heck, I will settle on a real nickle slot machine.
