Native American Establishments Prevail in the Ranking of the Best Casinos Outside Las Vegas

Native American Establishments Prevail in the Ranking of the Best Casinos Outside Las Vegas

Last month, one of the leading periodicals in the United States of America published a ranking of the country's best casino hotel complexes. The winner of the ranking was the Mohegan Sun complex in Connecticut.

This week, the same publication published another rating, but with a bias on the gaming theme. “The Top Ten Best According to Readers: The Best Casino Outside of Las Vegas 2019.

The leader of this rating was the Barona Resort & Casino complex in Lakeside (California). This complex is run by a Native American tribe and is located thirty miles northeast of San Diego.

75 gaming tables and 2500 slot machines are available to its visitors.

The second and third places are occupied by Foxwood Resort Casino complexes in sh. Connecticut and Pechanga Resort Casino at California, respectively. The fourth place went to the Grand Sierra complex in Reno. Mohegan Sun completes the top five.

The collection and processing of information for compiling this rating was carried out by employees of the rating agency, as well as a number of gaming industry analysts.

Native American Casinos

Among the factors that leave a favorable impression of a visit to a gambling establishment were:

  • friendly mood of dealers at gambling tables;
  • blackjack payouts 3: 2;
  • roulette with one “zero” sector;
  • free games on slot machines;
  • availability of free slot machines;
  • reliable and understandable loyalty program;
  • the presence of gaming areas for non-smoking visitors.

According to this rating, the top ten casinos located outside of Las Vegas included five institutions that are owned and operated by Native American communities. By the way, the affordability of the institution’s services is also an important factor for a gambling establishment to leave a good impression. In Las Vegas, this is becoming increasingly difficult due to constantly increasing resort fees.

At the time of compilation of this material, the size of the resort fee at premium gambling establishments in Las Vegas, such as

  • Bellagio,
  • Wynn,
  • Venetian,
  • Palazzo

is up to $ 45 per day while in many casino resorts operated by Native American communities these additional casino fees are either significantly lower or absent in principle.

So, for example, Wagop, Pechanga, Turning Stone and Encore - do not take a cent of fees from their visitors. Beau is a little less modest - visitors pay $ 16 each, followed by Mohegan Sun and Foxwood with $ 24.95 and $ 25, respectively.

Let's catch up and overtake Las Vegas!

At present, there is a critical opinion in society that Las Vegas is managed by large corporations that are more concerned about the quality of service to their shareholders than visitors. This, in turn, plays very noticeably in the hands of casinos located outside of SinCity.

The general manager of Barona Resort, Rick Salinas, states:

 "It is almost poetic to receive this top distinction because Barona is patterned after the casinos from the Golden Age of Las Vegas when the casino player was the focus. We recognize, reward and welcome casino players."
