If you like Old West-style casinos, this is your place. Though gunfire is kept to a minimum, the theme is nonetheless prevalent, from the saloon-style bars to Roxy’s, the rowdy dance hall. There’s even a quality western store (Sheplers). Elsewhere, modern amenities include a 24-hour bowling center, an 18-screen movie theater and Sam’s Town Live!, a 1,100-seat venue that stages a variety of country and pop concerts. In the middle of all this is Mystic Falls Park, a ten-story atrium whose indoor nature walk (with trees and chirping birds) gets interrupted four times daily by the Sunset Stampede, a laser light and water show. Check out the TV sets over the tables in some of the pits, and bet up to 20x odds at the crap tables. There are thousands of video-poker machines, though few, if any, are full pay.
Games: Bingo; blackjack ($5–$3,000); craps (20x, from $5); keno; Let it Ride; pai gow poker; poker (9 tables); roulette (double zero).
