Top-10 Casinos for Slots

21 December 2007

Poker might get all the publicity. But as far as the casino industry is concerned, slots rule the gaming floor. That's why Connecticut's Foxwoods Resort Casino (1) has 7,202 slot machines and Mohegan Sun Casino (2) has 6,200.

In Nevada, slot machines account for 66% of the total $12.1 billion in gaming revenue (including poker) according to 2006 data. Multi-denomination slot machines were the most popular in 2006, bringing in $3.1 billion. Quarter slots accounted for $1.4 billion in revenue that year followed by penny slots ($1.1 billion) and dollar slots ($1 billion).

Given these revenue numbers, it's no shock that Sheldon Adelson and the Las Vegas Sands filled the new Venetian Macao (3) with 6,000 slot machines. But what is amazing is that no Las Vegas casino landed in the top 10 casinos in terms of number slot machines offered.

Bally's Wild Wild West Casino (4) leads the list's three-casino Atlantic City brigade with 5,400 casinos. Two Michigan casinos are next. Detroit's MGM Grand (5) has 4,500 slots while the Soaring Eagle Casino and Resort (6) in Mt. Pleasant has 4,300.

The Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel (7) in New York, which draws visitors from both the U.S. and Canada, offers 4,289 (how's that for an odd number?).

Atlantic City's crown jewel, the Borgata (8), is known more for its poker room – and general opulence -- than slot machines. But it managed to crack the top 10 with 4,100 slot machines.

The Mystic Lake Casino Hotel Casino (9) brings 4,000 slot machines to the land of 10,000 lakes. And the Tropicana in Atlantic City rounds out the top 10 with 3,910.
