    MGM Has Taken Over

    My local is Empire City Casino in NY. A few months ago MGM took control.

    Since then:
    They phased out "Earn X points and get an equal amount in Free Play". For example, on Tuesday, when you earned 15 points you got $15 free play. There was something different every day. Now...on Wednesday, if you earn 55 points you get $5!

    And worse...they are taking away all the old machines. Every time I go see new machines where "my favorites" used to be. So now instead of making .20 bets, the minimums are .5 or more. As we know, the new machines gobble your money....fast.

    I am not a gambler. I am a player. I could make $100 last for several hours. This change has created a "gambler friendly" environment.

    When it gets to the point that my money is gone after an hour (and I'm not raising my bankroll) or so.....I'll be gone for good.

    We love MLife in Vegas but they've ruined Borgata so it doesn't surprise me that they've messed up other places too.

    How did they ruin Borgata? I thought Borgata was considered the best place to play slots in AC.
    Moved back to Ohio from AZ. Rude awakening. The Ohio casinos are horrible.

    Truth be told this year has been a complete disaster for me at Borgata. Until last weekend.

    It definitely used to be. I don't know how it is lately but I remember just after MGM took over Borgata the slots became noticeably tighter in my opinion... and that seemed to be the general consensus among people I talked to. They also got rid of a lot of the fun games there and replaced them with machines that had quicker bonuses, tighter gameplay, higher minimum bets, etc. Basically everything just seemed design to take customer money more quickly and not give them a good experience, which is what I remembered Borgata being like. I haven't gone back ever since so I'm not sure if they've changed their ways, but there are so many casinos in AC that I just don't bother going there anymore.
