The casino area is spacious and comfortable, if not particularly noteworthy. The layout approximates a series of circles, which looks good but seriously complicates any attempt to get directly from one end of the complex to the other. The emphasis is on liberal machines and table-game gimmicks, which go some way to improve players’ odds. The Stratosphere advertises a 98% return on more than 150 $1 dollar slots, a 100% return on some video-poker machines and 10x odds on craps, as well as double-exposure blackjack and crapless craps (with a bunch of cockamamie rules that aren’t player-friendly).
Casino: Big Six; blackjack ($5–$3,000); craps (10x; from $5); Let it Ride; pai gow poker; poker (16 tables); three-card poker.
