  • Charles Town Races & Slots: We finally won

    My wife & I went to Charles Town last night and won for the first time in about six months. We go on the average of 2-3 times a week. Yes we have a problem. When I say that we won, I mean we came out with more than we came in with. About $1,000 more. No jackpots just adding tickets up. A first in a long long time. We usually win what we bring or close to it & play it back & lose it because we are only there for a hour or two after we go there with what we brought. We take $400-$600. I don't play that much any more just watch my wife play. We lose too much. It was almost like it was in the good old days of Charles Town. Not putting $20 in and leaving the machine in less than a minute. I would say about 30-40% of the machines that we played let us play. A guy next to us playing said that he noticed the pay outs were better too that night & said it was probably because it was the end of the month & Ct had to catch up on the pay outs for the month. Don't know why it was but hope it stays like that but I doubt it. We've been going to CT since 2001 & have been noticing the change & not to the good. Have to say the Player's Choice program is a joke. You get 2 points for every $20 you play. 285 points equals $5. Add it up. You have to spend a lot to get anything. It was o.k. when the machines let you play. But when they don't, it's your $ building up the pts. not theirs. They used to send us $20 coupons for food. now it's now to $10 & we play the same as we did before. Have not stayed at the Hotel so can't comment on that but it looks nice not great from the outside. They also have way too many give a ways. Cars, $10,000. Keep the slots a little loose and stop those. The kiosk is a joke who cares about 5 free entries for give a ways. The free slot play is also a joke. For what we spend we should get a lot more $30 every 2 weeks!
