My brothers and I were in Central City to spend some hard-earned cash. Johnny Z's Casino turned out to be a fun way to donate! The automotive theme of the place was pretty cool! We had a blast!

We stayed in the middle of the week, casino was not crowded, however, that is not a bad thing if you are wanting options.

When you signed up for a players card you got $5.00 in free play. I played for a fair amount of time on the Casino's money. My husband and I had a good time at Johnny Z's.

They have great bar. The service is fast and pleasant. They have clean atmosphere and noise is minimal. Great place for quick drink and little gambling.
