Slot-clubbing locals keep every inch of the capacious Sunset Station casino buzzing. The usual table games, with $5–$10 minimums (and 10x odds at craps), are situated under a stained-glass ceiling, with a wide range of slots and video-poker machines. There are plenty of other ways to spend your money too. A 13-screen Regal Cinema, childcare center and bowling center cater for adults and children; grown-ups may prefer the live music at Club Madrid. But the restaurants are the steady draws, with cuisine that ranges from Chinese to go at Panda Express to the smarter Sonoma Cellar Steakhouse. In between, there’s the worth-the-wait Feast Buffet, plus mojitos and margaritas at Viva Salsa. And don’t miss the gaudy Gaudí Bar in the center of the action.
Games: Bingo; blackjack ($5–$5,000); craps (10x; from $2); keno; Let it Ride; mini baccarat ($5–$1,000); pai gow poker; poker (8 tables); roulette (double zero); three-card poker.
