West Virginia Slots News - The Top Games, Best Big Wins and more

West Virginia is hardly the first state that comes to mind when thinking of playing slots in America, but with two huge slot gaming outlet plus one of the country’s most historical five-star casino resorts, this innocuous little place is quite literally a top stop for the proper slots enthusiast…



In terms of sheer numbers alone, the Hollywood Casino at Charles Town Races boasts over 2,500 slot machines, video poker and electronic games, plus a high limit “area” featuring progressive jackpot slots with ante of $5 to $100 per spin.

The Mountaineer Casino Racetrack and Resort boasts over 1,100 slot machines. A nice bonus for slots players here (aside from all the surrounding niceties of a full-on resort) is the inclusion of both smoking and non-smoking slots playing areas, a boon for both types.

Longtime players at and tourists of West Virginia casinos may have noticed a certain scaling-down of game collections at the Hollywood and Mountaineer since the grand opening of each. Apparently due to competition from Maryland casinos and the subsequent drying up of traffic coming from Baltimore, both have pulled thousands of games.

But hey, their loss is the players’ gain – the aforementioned 1,100 slots at the Mountaineer casino are now spread over 78,000 square feet – spacious and comfy!

The slots section of the Mardi Gras Casino and Resort in Charleston features “Bourbon Street-style” (WV slots in New Orleans fashion, we guess) gaming on just under 1,000 slots. The Wheeling Island Hotel Casino Racetrack just recently expanded its gaming room to 1,100 slots as well; at this gaming house are players promised the “Wheeling Feeling.”
