I just went to Empire City in Yonkers for the first time today. Maybe it's because I am spoiled by Mohegan Sun and AC, but I was not impressed at all by the games there. There were quite a few games that I knew but they seemed to play slower, almost like they were dumbed down for this casino. Of the machines I played, only Super Jackpot Party was pretty much exactly like it was every other time I played it. I was also surprised by the number of $.02, $.05 and $.10 machines. Very few penny slots, which is what I prefer.
I'm a New Yorker, so it was fun to just jaunt over to Yonkers on the Academy Bus (which is essentially free) for a few hours, but for the most part, I think I'll be sticking to Mohegan and AC.
PS - I'm a newbie but I did not see any threads on Empire City when I searched. Feel free to disregard if this has been covered recently!
