Not glitzy, but sold 3:2 blackjack, $5 minimum, single deck, double deck. Very old school, not the best machines if your a slot player, but solid place if you’re a table games guy.

This casino is "old school" Las Vegas in a great way. Low table limits, great gaming rules, old time slots that still take coins, the latest slots, live keno and very friendly staff. I added many photos of my visit and I will return.

We keep coming back here because it's just so darned cool. The old school charm can never be replicated in those gaudy behemoths on the strip. The best place to play for low-rollers: $5 single-deck blackjack which still pays 3:2 on a natural, Roulette with...More
