I took some friends here for a real original Vegas experience. They played some 25 cent roulette without the 'strip' pressure. As seems to be the norm downtown the dealer had some issues with the payouts which is frustrating. Some of the clientele were not as friendly as the strip with one patron swearing at a dealer at a craps... More

Very cool and vintage casino near Fremont Street. Within walking distance from the canopy. It has an old time vibe about it and everyone working there was exceptional. Worth a visit.

I play DDBP. They have 9/6 machines here at the bar and they Actually Pay : ). Also, the slots are the loosest in town I've played in a long time. I'll be back.

I sat down to play roulette, but seated next to me was an intoxicated man who made the experience very unpleasant. The man kept spilling his beer on the table felt and even on some of us seated next to him; yet casino management did nothing about him. Apparently, it had happened before I sat at the table as well.... More

I was here with my sisters - no option for just 'Family'. One of my sisters had really been wanting to play blackjack on one of the virtual setups and they had one here. We had a blast! This casino did not have the music blasting and there weren't the overwhelming crowds either. We could hear the 'dealer'. The dealer... More

Don't let my title mislead you into thinking this casino has a "dated" feel about it because it does not at all! It is preserved in the most romantic way! From the moment I walked in, history surrounded me. Besides the nostalgic feel, the casino had very affordable tables and slot machines. This is a must see casino if you... More

Excellent. If you want a taste of old Vegas, this is the best! Tower Rooms are large with real wood furniture. The lounge has excellent performers. Staff are kind and helpful. Fremont street right out the door. Music can be loud from the street, but you are in sin-city. Everyone should stay here at least once!

Loved staying here as my first trip into Vegas. The rooms were all vampy and newish. I loved it. The green headboard behind the bed and the little kneeling thingy at the foot of the bed! I had to call my sister back in Sydney Australia so that I could skype the room to her! My only embarrassing moment came... More

We got their Prime rib special It was great. The servers were so attentive! The meal was super. One of the best we had on our vacation! We don't gamble so we can't say about the machines, but the service was great!
