Is the New York New York Casino in Vegas Worth Visiting?

To be perfectly honest, it doesn’t matter in which casino you wander into in Las Vegas, if you are a slot machine player you are going to find more than enough slot machines to keep you very busy!

However, if you are planning on staying in one of the many different casino resorts up and down the Las Vegas Strip, then you may be thinking of staying at the New York New York Casino Resort. If so please spend a few minutes reading through the following guide, for having stayed at that property a few times I will enlighten you on the good and bad aspects of staying there.

In regards to the number and types of slot machines you will find on the huge gaming floor, there are around 1500 slot machines, the vast majority of them are penny slots, however you will of course find a high limit area if you are a higher rolling slot player.

The casino is part of MGM Resorts so in regards to their players club it is the MLife one you will be accessing, so you can use your card not only at the New York New York Casino but all of the other MGM Resorts properties too.

Sadly, New York New York Casino is one of those venues that has embraced car parking charges, and it will be dependent on your MLife Players Card status and whether you are staying at the hotel as to whether you will benefit from free parking or not, however anyone simply visiting the casino and not staying there will get one hour of free parking and then will have to pay.

The dreaded Resort Fees are also charged on top of the room rates at this venue, and as such you should always factor into your budget those additional fees and charges.

The location of the New York New York Casino is such that you will be in walking distance to quite a number of other casinos, whilst you will find walkways enabling you to directly access several other casinos there will be a fair amount of walking involved if you do want to venture out and about.

Be aware also that the area outside of this casino resort is very busy morning, noon and night, and as such you will often find yourself battling through the crowds to arrive at wherever it is you are walking to!

There are more than enough bars and dining venues at the New York New York Casino, and they do have a range of different rooms and suites available, but being on the Strip you will find the house edges on their card and table games are not overly generous, nor are the payout percentages on their slot machines and video poker machines!

If you are looking at being right in the thick of the action on the Las Vegas Strip then the New York New York Casino is the place for you, however if you want somewhere a little more quieter then you will need to find another place to stay!
