Cache Creek Casino...gambling hall for losers!
Chances are - that tourists taking in the sights in the San Francisco Bay area - may get the urge to take a trek outside the city proper to try their luck at the slots or card tables where it is legal.
In that event, discerning gamblers may be wise to pass on the Indian tribe-run no-frills Casino at Cache Creek, for starters.
Of course, some of the local tour groups offer perks, that may be tempting.
For example, tourists who cough up a paltry $9.00, will be able to lounge on a chartered bus and take in the countryside to-and-from the Casino without a hand at the wheel.
And, to make the stakes a tad higher, slot-lovers are treated to $15.00 free slot play to make the pot (!) sweeter!
But, the experience generally falls flat for the jaded, used to the adrenalin-rush of sizzling hot-spots like Vegas (for instance).
After all, the compact gambling hall is low on amenities, short on friendly wait-staff, and stingy with the cash pay-outs.
Spring for a side-trip to Reno, where the $$$ will be better invested, just betcha!
