You can comb through the grass looking for four-leaf clovers, pick up every fallen penny you see on the street, and spend your afternoons chasing rainbows. But you don't need a stroke of good fortune (or a jackpot) to score this week's Escape: a one-night getaway ($119 Sundays through Thursdays; $179 Fridays) to the Mount Airy Casino Resort, a AAA Four Diamond property in Pennsylvania's storied Pocono Mountains.
Get lucky in a deluxe room, decorated with serene neutral tones, pillow-top king-size beds (or two queen-size beds), oversized flat-screen TVs, and granite bathrooms. But the biggest perk of all sits just outside your window: the lush golf course. The plush, relaxing room might persuade you to hole up à deux, but you won't want to miss the adult playground that lies below.
Get started at more than 2,000 machines of the classic (Blazin 7's, Tower of Power, and Jackpot Party) or trendy (Red Hot Fusion and Vegas Hits) variety. Hedge your bets at the dollar machines or play high-roller at the $100 slots, then go all in for a game of Mississippi Stud or Texas Hold 'Em, and wander around the roulette, blackjack, and craps tables.
When hunger strikes, use your $20 dining credit at one of the resort's five restaurants. Indulge in a classic surf 'n' turf dinner at red Steakhouse; go for old-school Italian in the form of clams oreganato and tagliatelle osso bucco at Le Sorelle Cucina; or, order burgers, Reubens, heaping breakfast plates, and classic banana splits from Betty's Diner. Then, work it off by dancing up a storm at Gypsies Lounge & Nightclub on Fridays, or have a more sophisticated nightcap by the piano at red's Bar.

Don't leave your next mini-vacay up to chance—this Escape is an instant winner.
