There are a lot of ways to get the adrenalin going in this life, one way is the feeling of getting that big money win at a casino.  Maybe hitting that big jackpot on a slot machine, getting 4 of a kind at the poker table, or the fun of hitting a royal flush on video poker.

I lived in Vegas for 7 years and that is quite fun to do.  The thing I learned is to take the money and run after a big hit,  Time can be your enemy in a casino and it is so easy to put some or all of it back.  I really enjoy gambling, but have learned not to play with money I can't afford to lose. A good rule.

10 Best Casinos In Michigan

If your looking for the best casinos in Michigan you really won't have far to drive. They all are within a 3 or 4 hour drive. The 2 closest to Lansing are Firekeepers and Soaring Eagle. I am a fan of them both. The question is where do you feel the most Lucky?

So if you can't take a long vacation plan a day or two at one of those fine casinos here in Michigan. Gamble, have some dinner, a few drinks, and forget the craziness in the world these days. I recently visited Soaring Eagle Casino and really enjoyed the whole day there. I even hit an $1100 dollar slot.  I broke my own rule though and put half of it back, but had a wonderful day.
