I've been to Vegas once, but it was a family vacation and I was 13 at the time. Obviously didn't get to do any of the really fun stuff.

I'd love to go back one day and play cards, but that's simply not in my budget right now.

Living in Houston it's much easier (and cheaper) to travel to a casino in Louisiana, so I wanted to hear about some gambling experiences there. Where are the best spots?

The only one I've been to is Harrahs in New Orleans. It was nothing special.

Not *as* close as Louisiana, but WinStar up across the Tex/Oklahoma border is supposed to be nice. Probably about a 5 hour drive, not including the required stop at Woody's in Centerville :)

I just went to Woodies today. I stop there every time I travel from Houston to somewhere north. Good jerky. Anyhow, used to go to Winstar. It was just a tent across the state boundary when I went. Now it's huge. The weird thing about it is that you have to pay like 50 cents to play each hand of blackjack. That automatically goes to the state. Never cared much for that. And they didn't have drinks when I played there. Louisiana does.

Coushatta is pretty nice for being in the middle of nowhere. The crowd is the opposite of what you would see in a nice Vegas casino. That's both a good and bad thing...

Their buffet has a ton of Louisiana style food.

I know tons of people who love Coushatta, but they have just a handful of tables (if that's what you want to play), and the minimums on those tables tend to run high considering this casino started out as an oversized barn in the middle of nowhere.

Save your money and go to Vegas.
