If you had a limited budget/bankroll of $250, which New England casino would you choose and what games would you play and why?” New England Casinos on a $250 Bankroll.
Note – this is all based on pre-pandemic experience.
Criteria – $250 Bankroll
Based on my own gambling experience, the player:
- has been playing for years, and has a player’s card from them all nine New England casinos.
- knows how to play many table games – but prefers only a few;
- Favorite table games include Pai Gow Poker, Craps & Blackjack in that order.
- enjoys video poker, especially Double Double Bonus, and playing slots
The goal is to play as long as possible on a bankroll of $250.
