get-in-the-game-blog.jpgVariety is the name of the game at Potawatomi Bingo Casino. We know that when you're in the mood to have fun, you want an endless array of options for your choosing, especially when it comes to gambling. Walk through our doors and you'll be greeted with the sound of 3,100 slot machines ready for you to play. Yes, that's right—over 3,100 slot machines of different denominations and themes all under one roof.

To make matters even better, about 2,000 of these machines are low denominations (1¢, 2¢ or 5¢)—that's over half of machines we offer! These low denomination machines can be found throughout our casino floor, as well as in the non-smoking Sky Lodge on the third floor and in the Solstice Lounge on the second floor.

Why are low denomination machines so popular? They are a favorite because they allow slot players to have the ultimate say in how much they want to play. Because the minimum bet is as little as 1¢, 2¢ or 5¢, players don't have to gamble much to be in the game for the chance to win a big jackpot.
