So this is the first time you have step foot in Atlantic City and you want to know which casinos to visit and play in. On your first trip to Atlantic City there is so much to do and so much to see it is hard to decide where to spend your time. Additionally, you can find all about these restaurants on fullcountpitch.com and decide for yourself what suits you the best. I will try to help make this decision easier by giving you some insight into what in my opinion are the top five casinos to visit in Atlantic City these reviews are based on my personal experiences.
This is the newest casino in Atlantic City and by far much superior to the other casinos that are there. If I only had enough time to visit one casino this would be the place I would go. It is not only a great place for gambling but also has some very nice dining places. Some of the great places to eat are Wolfgang Puck American Grille, SeaBlue, and Bobby Flay Steak these places can be quite pricey though. Less expensive places for a meal include Bread and Butter, Roma and the Borgata Buffet which also serves very good food. If you do not feel like gambling all night the casino also has two great nightclubs mur.mur and another night clubs called MIXX. The rewards programs they have at playing at their casino are quite good and you do not need to spend a lot of money to earn rewards. Sometimes they even give you a room upgrade when you get a free room that happened to me. They also have the largest if the nicest looking poker room in Atlantic City with the newest playing chips. The downside of this casino is that the minimum for the table games are a little higher on certain days and time. This casino has an older crowd usually mid 20’s and up; also they have the best waitresses in all of Atlantic City and when you go there you will see why.
Harrah’s I think is the second-best place to go if you are visiting Atlantic City for the first time. This is especially true if you are not a gambling person and just want to go there to the party because they have one of the if not the best clubs called The Pool which throws a party every night in a vacation getaway like atmosphere with an indoor pool. The Pool is also opened during the day for swimming and sunbathing and is also just the right temperature. They have many good places to dine and a buffet which are less pricey than some of the other dining places in other casinos I have been to. The rewards program is pretty good and the best part is you can use their points at any casino owned by Harrah’s gaming; I have friends who got free rooms in Las Vegas for 3 or 4 nights. There are also a lot of stores in this casino for shopping even though I personally have never bought anything from any of those stores.
This is my third choice of casinos and resorts I would go to if I were in Atlantic City or had little kids with me and when I say little I mean anyone under age 21. This resort and casino is more family-oriented and are next to the boardwalk which is really nice during the summer with a nice beach and a lot of activities to do besides gambling and drinking. You see a lot of people at this resort with family. In addition inside the casino is also an IMAX theater which shows a lot of really great movies which is another reason why you see a lot of people with family’s coming here. They also have a family-style Italian restaurant called Carmines which I believe is a chain place, and a Cuban food restaurant and bar called Cuban Libre there are also a bunch of other places but those are the only two places I ate at. The nightlife although I did not think that their clubs were as lavish or great looking they were still fun the Cuban Libre restaurant becomes a night club that plays Latin music which I did not find at any other casino and resort, they also they have the nightclub 32 Degrees, and a sports bar called A Dam Good Sports Bar if you just want to have a drink and check out the scores for some games. The only downside is that the rewards program for this casino is not that great I have not received a single comp from this casino, but in their defense, I usually only play poker here so there are not as big comp points for that as slots and table games.
This is your typical casino it is a nice place to gamble there are not a lot of other activities to do here. They have a lot of the amenities that the other newer and bigger casinos have but nothing that really stands out. This is on the list because it is bigger and better than most of the other casinos besides the casinos mentioned earlier on. This would be a casino I would stop by if I had some extra time or wanted a change of scenario or place to gamble at one from the earlier mentioned casinos. This place has a lot of older crowd mostly in their 30’s and up.
This place has a similar vibe to Caesars it is not all that amazing but just a place to gamble although the reason I added it is because of the Wild Wild West casino which has lower minimum table games than a lot of the other casinos and a good place to play at if you have a small budget.
