High limit slot machines are becoming more and more popular. Not only are these machines reserved for Las Vegas. Casinos around the country are equipping themselves with high stakes slots.
Las Vegas casinos have high stakes slot machine rooms for players who want to play only upwards of $1 machines. These slot rooms range anywhere from $1 all the way up to $25 machines.
Mid size casinos are also starting to create high roller rooms for slot players. The Coconut Creek Casino in Florida has several machines where players can actually play up to $100 a spin.
Now, small casinos are getting in on the high action. The Meadows Racetrack and Casino in Washington County, Pennsylvania has just opened a special high stakes slot machine room.
New laws put into place earlier this year have allowed Meadows to add forty two $1 machines, twenty $5 machines, eight $10 machines, and eight $25 machines.
The casino has put those machines in a room for high rollers. The machines will stay there until the temporary casino is closed when a $155 million permanent casino is done being built.
Jon Ameche, who frequents Meadows, was pleased with the addition of the new room, “I’m excited to have the chance to play for some of the high jackpots that these new machines are offering.”
Adelson Brings Casino Ferry Service to Macau’s Cotai Strip
Macau has already become the most dominating casino area on the planet. Now Sheldon Adelson is trying to make it as convenient as possible to get to his casinos.
Adelson, who runs the Las Vegas Sands Corporation, is launching a ferry service from Hong Kong to the Cotai Strip. The strip is an area that Adelson has big plans for in relation to casino gambling.
His two main competitors, Wynn Macau, and Lisboa, are located on the mainland peninsula, and Macau’s current ferry service runs from there to China.
Adelson’s new service will run twenty times a day starting at 7:00 in the morning, and having the last ship leave Macau at 5:00.
Adelson’s newest endeavor is trouble for his rival, Stanley Ho, who currently owns casinos in Macau. He used to have a monopoly in Macau in the casino industry, but that was dissolved back in 2002.
Adelson has The Venetian Macau already operational, and is planning on bringing several other hotels to the area. The City of Dreams resort is also being built on Cotai by another Adelson competitor, Melco PBL.
