Upstairs in The D

During the past couple of years since The D took over the Fitzgerald in downtown Las Vegas, it's been transformed into a much classier place. In some ways, I think it outclasses The Golden Nugget, long considered to be the jewel of The Fremont Experiences.

They even have flat-screen television sets for your entertainment at the elevators to the guest floors.

On their second floor, in addition to The D Grill and Andiamo's Italian Steakhouse, they've transformed the upstairs casino area into a Vintage Vegas Slots attraction. Now ... "vintage" in this case means slot machines that accept coins. Remember those? We're actually talking not that many years ago. Guess "vintage" is relative, huh?

Most of the slots in the area are coin slots.

I sat down at the dollar poker machine. Didn't have any dollar tokens, so I fed a $20 bill into the machine.

I didn't get a chance to get paid in dollar tokens because the damned machine took all of my money. So I couldn't take a picture of actual coins to show you.

Oh well, I wasn't going to take out any more money here.

I had better luck downstairs with the now-usual currency-ticket payment machines.
