Santa Fe Station Informative - Its Pay Their Way, at Santa Fe (not Play Your Way)

Review by Mich on 2006-12-20
LAS VEGAS, NEVADA -- Station Casinos has almost finished remodeling the old Santa Fe Casino in Las Vegas Nevada located on I95 N, Rancho Exit. This has been at least six years in the making. Today the Station Casinos claim "You can play your way at the Santa Fe" Don't believe it. If your going north on interstate 95, don't stop there!!!!! Unless you want to be stripped of all your cash. This is a casino that lowers the percentages for pay outs, until they have hauled in enough money and they are hungry for cash. I am speaking from experience. I'm talking long term gaming where I have lost thousands to Santa Fe Station. So heres a little insight...if your looking for a fun, fair gaming experience, JUST DRIVE BY SANTA FE STATION on I95N in Las Vegas Nevada.

I don't think any casino has fair payouts. There is a reason why they make so much money. They tend to always end up on the winning side.

You say they lowered the pay-out percentages. Did they force you to gamble there? Hold a gun to your head? Threaten you? You lost thousands there and continued to play. Since you are an adult, I am guessing here since one has to be at least 21 to gamble in Nevada, figure out for yourself who is really to blame.

Sparticus, We have to remember that casinos, gaming rooms or whatever they call themselves, are not charities. They are a for-profit business. That's why the odds always favor the house. Anyone intending to walk out with a huge pay off in almost all circumstances will be sorely disappointed. I go for the entertainment value and if I am losing I know to stop playing. I worked with a chronic gambler. He never won anything big. Always he blamed the house for screwing him over.

I've always had good luck with the change machine. The bill changers consistently have the highest payout percentage of any of the machines in the casino.

I wiped a tear from my eye as I laughed. He lost thousands of dollars? That is too rich (or not in this case). They have a word for this guy - Sucker!

OK first off, Interstate 95 runs from Maine to Florida and last I check did not jog 3000 miles to the west and intersect Sin City. Second, I'm assuming we are talking slot machines and because you lost a lot of money at them, you are certain the payouts are different there? You need to be schooled in Slot Machines 101 I see, and a US highway map wouldn't hurt to own either.

Slim obviously they were talking about US 95 which runs smack through Vegas. It's really not that hard to make that connection but I guess some people live for that ripe opportunity to point out somebody else's simple errors. Slim, does it really feel that good to point out the short comings of others or magnify simple little mistakes? I’d rather see the forest than study the knot holes, but hey that's just me.

Well thanks for the reality check there stewie. I didn't believe my response was any worse than the others, but I'm glad you came by to set me straight.

For all of you who decided with out thinking, the tip came from a seasoned gambler, not your recreational dope that comes to Vegas because "it's a lot of fun". First of all a tourist and a local are two different victims. The tourist is expected to lose, because they are to dumb to go somewhere else on vacation. The local lives the business. Espeacially for PassingBy, your obviously clueless to the tatics, and for the mapologist, I think your right about the highway being US95 North, although I think you need to understand I am talking about "video poker" slots aren't my bag...they're designed for kindergardners. Happy gaming and don't forget your ATM cards.
