Make a Date With Lady Luck at Las Vegas' 10 Best Casinos



Las Vegas’ casinos are famous around the world, and over the years each casino has developed its own ambiance and selection of games. Finding a casino you enjoy might require sampling a few different places to get a feel for what you like best. While some gamblers take a serious dive into the odds and payout stats of each casino (an undertaking for the math savvy among us), others are more interested in finding low (or high) limit tables, or specific types of games.

Casinos throughout Las Vegas offer a pretty standard array of games like poker, slots and craps, but if you’re looking for something specific, it’s worth doing some homework. If you like bingo or live keno, for instance, you’ll probably need to find a neighborhood casino like the Red Rock Casino. Poker, in its many forms, can be found virtually everywhere.

The number of high and low limit tables are also unique to each casino. Neighborhood and Downtown casinos tend to have more low limit tables than Strip casinos. (Many think they also offer better odds to players.) The El Cortez on Fremont Street has plenty of low-limit games, plus blackjack from a single or double-deck shoe.

For the largest casinos and newest games, the Strip is the place to play. The Venetian offers one of the world’s largest casinos, plus a popular poker room that attracts locals and visitors.
