A mid 1990s beast it may be, but this is still a hip and extremely popular gambling den. The casino remains small by Vegas standards: only some 800 slots and video-poker machines, and 76 tables. The main floor is one big circle, with an outer hardwood walkway and an elevated bar in the center. Dealers are encouraged to be friendly and enthusiastic; some will even give you a high-five if you hit a natural blackjack, a stunt that would give the pit boss a heart attack anywhere else.
Games: Baccarat ($100–$3,000); Big Six; blackjack ($10–$5,000); craps (3x, 4x, 5x; from $5); Let it Ride; mini baccarat ($5-$2,000); pai gow poker; roulette (double zero); three-card poker.
