Best Trifecta

Desert Diamond Casino and Hotel

The Tohono O'odham Nation has outdone itself with this striking desert-hued, Lego-like sprawling casino and hotel. This is the ultimate trifecta--gambling, eating, lodging--especially for the visiting in-laws who like to play the slots, keno and poker 24/7. They can satisfy their cravings in the food court, coffee bar, buffet or upscale steakhouse; they can take a dip in the pool; and they can have some privacy while sleeping until noon. Forget Vegas; there's glitz, glamour, wall-to-wall blinking lights and a perpetual ding-ding-ding soundtrack. What happens here stays here, unless someone spills the beans. Let's just say the experience is far superior to the nearby dumpy dog track.
