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. There are wide ranges of slots and video poker machines, though the full-pay variety are few and far between.
Naturally, there are plenty of other ways in which to spend your money. A 13-screen Regal Cinema, a Kids Quest childcare centre and a very with-it bowling centre all appease both adults and kids; grown-ups may prefer the new Club Madrid, where you'll find name acts in an intimate lounge. During swimming season, big-name entertainers (from Styx to Clint Black) perform at the 5,000-seat amphitheatre by the Mediterranean-style pool. But the restaurants are the steady draws, with cuisine that ranges from wings at Hooters to the smarter Sonoma Cellar Steakhouse. In between, there's the worth-the-wait Feast Buffet, plus the Guadalajara Bar & Grille and its sweet little tequila collection. And don't miss the gaudy Gaudí Bar in the centre of the action.
