New York City’s first casino opens up at the Aqueduct Racetrack in Queens today and it sucks. Although the New York Times goes out of its way to try and make comparisons to Las Vegas, it falls waaaaaaay short, mainly because it’s comprised entirely of video gambling machines.

In compliance with state law, there can be no human dealers which means none of the fun table games like Blackjack, Poker or Let It Ride makes a casino a casino. But the worst affront of all, is the lack of free drinks for gamblers as they piss away their money, and that’s just unaccpetable. (Photo: The Aqueduct Blog)
