Winner Winner Chicken Dinner!  My Review( and Give-a-way) of the 2010 Edition of American Casino Guide!!

You, my dear readers, already know that I frequent Atlantic City evey now and then with my family.  Yes, we are a family who enjoys the excitememt and thrill of the casino.  So you can imagine how f was to beun it was to be chosen to review the new edition of  "The American Casino Guide".

From their website:

What kind of information does it give?

You'll get every casino' s toll-free telephone number!
You'll get informative maps of 41 states showing where each casino is located plus detailed maps of Atlantic City, Las Vegas, Reno/Sparks, Tunica and Biloxi!
You'll have a comprehensive listing of the number of rooms and suites at each resort and their prices.
You'll get detailed stories on which casino games offer you the best odds and how slots and video poker machines work!
You'll get four charts that show you the expert strategy for playing blackjack, plus four more charts that show you how to use the proper strategies on video poker machines!
You'll also learn how to take advantage of casino promotions!

As much as I am familar with casinos all over the USA, I decided that to really make this a good review I would turn to the expert in my family for their input as mom, Judy!

( shown here with my daughter Sarah)

After looking it over carefully, Mom was really impressed with the scope of information that was provided in this Casino Directory...everything from where to park to what types of machines you would find to the food that was offered to where to stay.  Add the great casino coupons to that information and she was sold!  She felt it was easy to read and written clearly and logically.  She even found out some things she didn't know about some of her favorite casinos!  Now I was impressed as well!
