There are many casinos in Las Vegas Nevada. You can find $1.00 black jack or $1,000 black jack tables. From the high rollers VIP areas in fancy Vegas Casinos to the smoky keno rooms with ragged carpet. Regardless of your budget you can find somewhere fun and unique to gamble while visiting Las Vegas.

Slots-A-Fun Casino

The Slots-A-Fun Casino is located on The Las Vegas Strip. It is by the Circus Circus Hotel and Casino. Slots-A-Fun Casino has many low limit table games including $1.00 blackjack. Slots-A-Fun Casino is a fun place to gamble cheaply if you go there during a slow time. During peak nights the Slots-A-Fun Casino is packed with people wanting to play low limit games. Do not attend the Slots-A-Fun Casino on a weekend or any other time the place is busy. When the Slots-A-Fun Casino is empty of locals and tourists then it is a very fun place to gamble in Las Vegas. If it is not a slow night then do not even bother to show up to the Slots-A-Fun Casino.

Gold Spike Hotel and Casino

The Gold Spike Hotel and Casino is located in my favorite part of Las Vegas. Fremont Street. Downtown Las Vegas is much funner and generally cheaper then staying on the Vegas Strip. There are always exceptions and some great deals can be found for the Las Vegas Strip hotels and casinos during non peak Vegas Pooltimes.

The Gold Spike Hotel and Casino has some lower limit tables such as $2.00 Blackjack. $2.00 Blackjack is only available occasionally. $3.00 Black Jack is the favorite game of many people in Las Vegas. The Gold Spike Hotel and Casino also has a sports book inside called "Leroy's Sports book".

If you choose to stay at the Gold Spike Hotel and Casino during you vacation to Las Vegas you will be well rewarded with your choice of location. You are right down by the Fremont Light Show and all of the casinos and sites located in the downtown area of historic Las Vegas. If you do want to see the Strip you are a very short bus ride away. You can also walk if you are not lazy. If it is summertime and over 100 degrees I highly suggest you do not walk the strip. I did once when it was 108 degrees and the soles on my shoes were soft from the hot asphalt and concrete literally melting my shoe soles away.

Palms Casino and Resort

The Palms Casino and Resort is where the middle class come to see the rich and famous. The rich and famous come to the Palms Casino and Resort to be seen by the middle class tourists. You may have seen the Palms Casino and Resort on television. The Palms Casino and Resort has been the site of many TV shows. If you want a tattoo they have a shop inside.

If you visit the Palms Casino and Resort make sure your bring your camera so you can take a picture of the Paparazzi who may be there outside snapping pictures of the rich and famous when they arrive at the Palms Casino and Resort.

The Palms Casino and Resort is a favorite of Britney Spears when she visits Las Vegas. I wonder when Britney plays blackjack and wants another card if she tells the Blackjack dealer "Hit Me Baby One More Time." After all of Britney's kids I think she was hit again.

At night time the Palms Casino and Resort is an absolutely gorgeous building. It is a popular spot for amateur photographers to snap a world class picture. I assume the inside of the Palms Casino and Resort is just as beautiful. I have never been inside the Palms Casino and Resort except for when I see this Vegas Hotel on television.


The 7-11 convenience stores in Las Vegas are everywhere. The 7-11 stores are not considered a casino to most people. They usually have some video gaming machines. I love the 7-11 stores for gambling. What other gaming property in Las Vegas can offer you a Slurpee? The fact that I can play video poker with bad odds and drink blue colored Slurpee's all day makes the 7-11 convenience stores an awesome Las Vegas gaming property.

New York New York Hotel and Casino

The New York New York Hotel and Casino was considered a truly amazing architecture and styling casino when it was first opened. Many people now days consider the New York New York Hotel and Casino to be slightly on the tacky side. I disagree. The New York New York Hotel and Casino is all of the fun of the real New York but a lot cheaper. The roller coaster is watch. The parking garage at the New York New York Hotel and Casino is my favorite ride. On a Sunday when there are only a few cars in there you can drive your car to the top. When you are speeding up to the top layer it looks and feels like you are flying of the edge of the building onto the roller coaster.

Luxor Hotel and Casino

I am a huge fan of the downtown Vegas properties but this strip property make my list. The Luxor Hotel and Casino is really cool for two reasons. The first is the shape of the building. It is modeled after the grLuxor las Vegaseat pyramids of Egypt. The other reason the Luxor Hotel and Casino is so cool is because of the huge light beaming out from the top of the Luxor into space. If the Aliens ever come to play poker they will probably come to the Luxor Hotel and Casino.

While visiting the Luxor Hotel and Casino make sure you get tickets to the show starring Angelica Bridges. Angelica Bridges starred on Baywatch and is also a favorite of Playboy readers. (readers or lookers?) The show is adult oriented so don't take Paul "Pee Wee" Reubens with you.

In 2007 they replace most of the Egyptian themed items and decorations. I wish they would have kept the Egyptian theme at the Luxor Hotel and Casino. The Luxor Hotel and Casino of today appears much different then the magnificent building that was originally there. The appearance is drastically different,. The Luxor Hotel and Casino has changed from an Egyptian theme to a corporate owned casino filled with gimmicky adverting. At least they have not changed the sweet shape f the pyramid.

Regardless of where you want to gamble in Las Vegas you can always find something cool, tacky, common, rare, expensive, cheap, or even dirt cheap. Just because you may want to visit an expensive Las Vegas Casino that does not mean you have to play there.
