Best Bets In Las Vegas Casinos
Roulette players should absolutely head over to the Monte Carlo for some rare Single Zero Roulette action.
Binion's is known for taking any kind of crazy wager if you present it to them... so if you're a gambler and like to "order off the menu" at your games... head on down to Binion's. Since Binion's isn't owned by the Binion family anymore, things have changed. However we still think that Binions has some great table action and the poker room is worthy of the Smithsonian.
Loose slots and tons of fun. A great place for coin plunkers of every denomination! Rare $5 shoe blackjack on weekends too.
The Strat's lousy location is made up by loose slots and single zero Roulette. Stay away from the double exposure blackjack, its rigged and the odds are completely not in your favor.
100x odds on craps.
The Golden Nugget
The Wheel of Fortune progressive slots on the Fremont street side of the casino to the northwest corner of the building - just past the Coin cage before you get to the bar... thank us later. The Golden Nugget also features some of the best table games in town - great odds on craps, $5 weekend blackjack, playable video poker and more. Who knows if this is going to change with the new ownership that took over in October 2005... we'll let you know when you know.
Watch the Blazing 7s Progressive on the Ballys slot floor, when it gets up around $2k, its gonna hit.
Wynn Las Vegas
Wynn 7s DO hit, as do the Video Poker machines. Wynn's slot floor is very very playable.
The most entertaining craps tables in Vegas. The bar in the back is great too... Guiness on tap! Video Poker has a crappy pay schedule, but the Guiness makes up for it. Blackjack only pays 6-5... strike two, but its one of the most fun craps tables in town - triple to the alley.
Always a $5 blackjack table, and $3 craps. Dealers are peculiar, but thats what adds charm. Video Poker at the bar has a bad pay schedule so don't play it, make sure you bring a gas mask for the stench, and don't go when they're filiming Ultimate Poker Challenge - the place is a madhouse.
The video poker machines down behind the bar in casino center pay out pretty liberally... we generally won't touch the table games here.
