If there is one thing you should know about me, I love to visit casinos.  I can be found in the happiest place on earth, Las Vegas, three to five times a year.  But when I am not in Vegas, I have been known to pop into the various casinos located across the Empire State.

When it comes to the Casinos across New York, there are some that are just better than others.  When I go to a casino, there are certain things that I look for; the variety of table games, friendliness of dealers, players club benefits, variety of slots, bartop video poker options, and Vegasy Vibe.

With that in mind, I rated each of the Casinos in these categories on a score from 1-5 (5 being the best) to come up with a score to rank my seven favorite Casinos in New York State. Why Seven?  Well, along with 13, it is one of my constant favorites to bet on the roulette wheel. Seven also appears on 90% of the slot machines I play.
