Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
"Though Niagara Falls is thought to be tourist purgatory, I love it there for so many different reasons. Every time I have vacationed up there I have always made my way to Casino Niagara, not to be mistaken for the Fallsview Casino. When you first get there it may feel like you are in the wrong place. The whole front of the building is a massive glass wall, it is bright and the ceilings are high. Once you get into the actual casino area it all changes though. No clocks, no daylight, no concept of time just like any other casino. Once you’re through the doors there are a set of escalators and stairs that lead up to the first floor. I always hang a right, walk past the big bar/seating area and continue on to a little alcove on the right-hand side. There are little cushioned areas to sit and play slot machines. There is a cherry quarter machine that I always start off at.
This has become a ritual for me. I love this machine, or rather the idea of this machine. My money still fresh in my pocket and the thought that I could make my day better with just the push of a button. Plain and simple. Give it a try. Maybe you’ll hit it big.”
