As a native Michigander, at least 1 trip "up north" is in order to appreciate the great splendor that is the Michigan outdoors.  Well what better way to enjoy the outdoors that a quick stop to an indian casino on the way!

I have not stopped at the Standish, Michigan slots only casino in quite a few years, but we had about an hour to kill before meeting up with our camping partners for the week, so the wife and I split a hundy and tried our luck.  

I cannot believe how busy this casino is!  We arrived on a Monday afternoon about 1pm and the main parking lot was completely full, leaving us to park in the "overflow" parking lot which is a few football fields away from the front doors.  Of course its raining, so this is a nice start to our tribal experience.

The casino is about 30,000 s/f (think the size of the 4 queens casino without table games) and has a subway and a couple native american gift shops, not much to it.  But since its opening, it has kept its 9/6 jacks or better pay tables on video poker.  The cool thing here is it maintains this great paytable all the way down to the 5c level.  You can creep up to dollars of luck strikes you, or dwindle down to nickels when your left with only a few singles in your pocket (I was left with the latter).  

I hate super crowded casinos, so this was a put off from the start, and of course 2 machines together was not happening so we sat with, we will call her "Marge" between us.  Not a big deal this happens in Vegas to, you play it out until the the in-between leaves or another pair of seats together open up.  Well Marge's husband, lets call him "Ralph" must have run out of money pretty early.  Ralph chose to stand directly behind me and watch Marge play through the rest of her money.  Now nothing makes a crowded casino better than having someone creeping behind you as your try to play!  

Eventually Marge played through her last dollar and she took Ralph with her so I was able to slide over a seat.  My session of 25c of vp was bumped up to 50c once I doubled my $20 investment to $40.  Well that was the end of my streak, as it went downhill from there (was Ralph breathing down my neck good luck?). 

Nothing else to report here, I would never make a special trip to this casino, but if your on I-75 heading "up north" its an OK excursion to get your gambling fix.  

I still have 2 months before I get to hit the mana of gambling destinations, so I trip to the Detroit casinos is in my near future.  It's no Vegas, but when you need a snack to hold you over for dinner, you gotta do what you gotta do.

It is the wish of everybody that he wants to see all the beautiful scenes of nature with his eyes. As we are living in the world of technology, we can see everything through the eye of camera. But many people like to see the things with their own eyes.
