To the best of my knowledge, only LAS and RNO have slot machines. Last year, there was a proposal floated down in Miami that would have put slots in at MIA, but that plan got shelved earlier this year.

Quoting srbmod (Reply 2): I also wonder if PHL or PIT would ever consider them down the road if the number of machines as well as licenses were to be raised?
At present, PA's current casino legislation (passed in 2004) prohibits the situating of 2 or more casinos within 10 miles of each other unless they're are located in the same county (which allows the SugarHouse Casino (presently under construction) and the proposed Foxwoods Casino to be situated in Philadelphia).
Harrah's being situated in Chester (located in Delaware County about 6 to 7 miles from PHL) prevents placing a casino (even if it's just slots in the terminals) at or near PHL.
