More of the best casinos in Vegas
Not done lusting after Vegas’s biggest and brightest? Then we’re here for you with more of the ultimate Las Vegas casino resorts. Get your bucket list ready because you’ll want to take notes – this is where the jackpot magic happens!
The Mirage Casino
If you haven’t guessed by now, Ocean’s Eleven is one of our favourite heist movies of all time. That’s why whenever we get a chance to mention either the Bellagio, the Mirage, or the MGM Grand, we’re going to take it.
With that in mind, this recommendation should not come as a shock. It’s the Mirage of course, and it’s pure Vegas through and through. If you’re the type of casino player that likes to try a little of everything, then the Mirage is your new casino home. Packed to the brim with every kind of casino game your heart could possibly desire, it’s a gambler’s dream come to life. Blackjack, Baccarat, Craps, Roulette, Poker and more, plus a vast array of slots machines ranging in bets from $0.01 all the way up to $1,000! More of a sports betting fan? Get your game on at the full-service sportsbook, with games broadcast live on huge HD screens. Want to try your skills at Texas Hold’em or Omaha? The Mirage’s Poker room is ready and waiting, with a range of affordable buy-ins and tournaments taking place throughout the day.
All this, plus a range of mobile gaming apps and non-smoking tables for the health-conscious too? We’re here for everything that the Mirage is bringing, along with a little Ocean’s Eleven glamour too. Except we won’t be stealing money, we’ll be winning it instead!
The Golden Nugget
Now here’s the real Old Las Vegas authenticity you’ve been looking for – The Golden Nugget, one of the city’s most famous casino destinations, and an iconic Vegas landmark since the 1940s. It might not be as large as some of the casinos on the Strip, but it’s certainly one of the most high-end, and it’s got decades of history behind it.
Ironically, if you’re looking for new casino games then this old grande dame of casinos might be your best bet. The Golden Nugget has a reputation for trying out new games on the casino floor, so it’s always worth a look. Of course, you’ll find all your traditional gaming greats too, from slots and Keno to Poker, table games, and hundreds more, as well as a dedicated poker room, race and sportsbook, and even poolside gaming as well! Because why go into the actual casino when you get dressed in your casual best and have some gambling fun in the sun! Who knows – The Golden Nugget could be your next golden winning opportunity!
Red Rock Casino, Resort and Spa
If you’re looking to head in a different direction from the Strip and find a new way to play, Red Rock Casino is where you need to be. Set at the foot of the Spring Mountains, Red Rock combines all the glitz and glamour of a Strip casino, with a unique location on the western edge of the Las Vegas Valley. The result? A billion-dollar resort set in acres of open space, with a party atmosphere that has to be experienced to be believed!
What’s the Red Rock vibe? For gamblers, it’s thousands of slot machines, table games and Poker games, as well as a 600-seat bingo hall, a 20-seat Keno lounge, a non-smoking Poker room, and a private high-limit room for high-rolling VIPs. For sports fans, it’s the 206-seat race and sportsbook, and the 96-foot video wall to watch all the games live in epic living colour. And for the pleasure-seekers, it’s pure entertainment in all its glory, from restaurants and bars to a world-class spa, movie theatre, bowling alley, swimming pool, and access to hundreds of nearby shops and attractions. This is Red Rock, and it’s Las Vegas at its primal best. Got your bags packed? Then casino adventure awaits!
El Cortez Hotel & Casino
We’re heading back into the city now, and right into a part of genuine Las Vegas history – with a casino that was once part-owned by Ben ‘Bugsy’ Siegel himself. It’s the El Cortez in downtown Vegas, and it’s the vintage gaming experience you’ve been looking for.
Forget the fast-paced flashy atmosphere of some of the newer casinos – here in this classic Old Vegas establishment, time ticks by a little more slowly. Play your favourite low limit games in a laid-back, casual casino environment, and look forward to more than 200 old school coin-operated machines and single and double deck Blackjack too. It’s a step back in time and it’s the kind of gaming that made Vegas famous once upon a time – you owe it to yourself to experience it in the flesh.
South Point Casino
Another top Vegas destination that strays from the Strip, South Point Casino is a favourite of both locals and tourists alike. If you’re a fan of slot machines then welcome to your new home – one packed with more than 2,390 Poker and slot machines and every type of game and theme you can think of. Of course you’ll find all the table games you want too, with more than 60 to choose from as well as a Poker room, bingo room, and a race and sportsbook too. Plus if you want to take your love of racing into real life, check out South Point’s Arena and Equestrian Centre for a variety of horse and rodeo-style events held throughout the year. Get some breathing space from the Strip and gamble like the locals do – South Point Casino is where it’s all happening!
