Casino Player Magazine Unveils Its 2012 “Best Of Gaming” Awards
The August 2012 issue of Casino Player Magazine reveals the results of its annual Best Of Gaming awards. For this highly anticipated special issue, thousands of Casino Player readers filled out ballots which asked them to name their favorite gaming properties and vote on a wide variety of related categories, including Best Hotel Rooms, Best Slots, Best Blackjack, Best Dealers, and many other aspects of the modern gaming experience.
The results were categorized by region. For each gaming market across the U.S., readers submitted their picks for the best gourmet restaurants and buffets; the casinos which offer the best players’ clubs, golfing, nightlife and live entertainment; and the casinos where they simply “feel luckiest.”
As usual, this year’s Best Of Gaming winners included familiar favorites who remained dominant in their respective regions, as well as some surprising upsets and new arrivals.
“For 25 years we’ve been telling gamblers where to find the best new restaurants, dazzling casino entertainment, table game odds and which casinos offer the loosest slot machines. For one month out of the year our readers tell us what they think,” commented Glenn Fine, CEO of Casino Player Publishing. “I learn something new every year from our readers, like why so many find one casino to be their luckiest while a different casino is their favorite. Everyone has their own reasons to enjoy the Best of Gaming reader survey issue of Casino Player magazine every year.”
“This is always our most exciting issue of the year,” added managing editor Rob Wiser. “These results are as closely watched by the industry as they are by casino enthusiasts. The winning casinos are thrilled to know that their guests consider them the best in their market, while this issue also provides a guide for all players who want to know where to find the best games, dining, entertainment and more.”
This year, Casino Player is celebrating its 25th anniversary as America’s #1 gambling magazine. This is the 17th year of the Best Of Gaming awards.
