Las Vegas Casino and Gambling Guide
Las Vegas can be pretty overwhelming to the first-time tripper and even more overwhelming when trying to decide where you want to fork your hard earned cash over for some gaming action. But with this handy-dandy guide we take the worry away. If a particular carpet joint sucks, we'll tell ya... and in conjunction with our Players Club Gaming Guide you'll be ready to hit the tables with the brains of our experts coursing through your cranial lobe.
Generally, the higher the 'rent' for a room the higher the gaming minimums are gonna be (not to mention the less payouts on slots.) Anyone will tell you that its getting harder and harder to find $5 minimum table games on weekends in Vegas, but they're out there... and we'll tell you where.
Downtown Las Vegas
Fremont Street, Glitter Gulch, Vintage Vegas - whatever you call it, Downtown is the definition of the vintage Vegas experience. 12 casinos all within walking distance offering some of the best casino odds, lowest table minimums, headline entertainment, and some of the best food in Las Vegas surrounded by the most famous display of Neon Art in the world.
The Las Vegas Strip is the heart and nerve center of Las Vegas. Spreading from Mandalay Bay to the Stratosphere, over 30 hotel casino megaresorts offer the best dining, gaming, entertainment and shopping to be found anywhere in the world.
Off Strip (but still hip)
With the boom in Las Vegas real estate prices, tons of hip young resorts are popping up in the streets surrounding the legendary Las Vegas Strip. The Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, The Palms, the newly opened South Coast, Green Valley Ranch, Rio and the family of Coast and Station Casinos all offer excellent amenities, some of which are at 1/2 the price of what you'll find on the Strip.
Primm/Jean (California State Line)
Who can argue with $30 bucks a night? The 40 mile drive to Vegas sucks, but Kenny Rogers plays at Whisky Petes!
