Slots. Not too much thinking involved. Just bet, push a button and go. As a lifelong video game player, I love that :)

I'm not a fan of card games, which is why I don't like playing table games at casinos.

Table, just a few games.

Why did you leave out VP?

I gamble specifically where I have the best house edge and do everything i can to maximize such.

I have never gambled one cent on a slot. Mindless, boring and high house edge.

For entertainment I play Video Poker, Pai Gow and Pai Gow Poker.

For money I bet on horses and play poker.

I prefer to play games that make me think a little. I get bored much to easily if I don't get to make decisions.

BJ and Craps....the closest you can get to even odds against the house

For me that's like asking: Do I eat steak or do I eat potatoes. :)

Gotta get a little of both for the full flavor. If I had to choose where I have the most fun, I'd have to say it is the nickel slots with the bonuses.

blackjack & craps are not the closest to even against the house.

For expert gambling advice go to an expert.

The house edge can be eliminated in blackjack if you are an AP.

With that being said, blackjack is my game of choice, and is what I play 95% of the time. I play a little LIR just to change things up a bit, and I will also play slots when I don't feel like thinking, and also to keep the room comps coming.

3 card poker, Black Jack, and slots. Don't play Craps because I don't like to stand. I'm a bartender and have to stand 8 hours a day and am not going to stand in a casino when I can sit down and play.

Slots .. I don't really work well with table games. Plus the slots amuse me so much fun.
