Complete List of Las Vegas Casinos

Last Update: February 2015
A "casino" is a place with table games, not just slots/video poker.  Otherwise every convenience store in town would be considered a "casino".
This list does not include casinos in Henderson, NV (like "M"), only Las Vegas proper.

The Vegas Strip casinos, from North to South

<<west side of the street
"LVB" is Las Vegas Blvd. South -- the Strip.
east side of the street>>

2000 LVB (Las Vegas Blvd.)

This is the big tower, which provides the best view of Vegas. There are three super-scary thrill rides at the very top. Best value on the Strip (rooms as low as $35), but in the Hall of Shame at Sweat the Money and listed on Problem Websites.

CLOSED 5/16/11!  Opened in 1952, Beatles stayed here in 1964, a thriving Rat Pack casino back in the day, added the Speed roller coaster in 1999.  R.I.P.

 Sahara 2535 LVB

Circus Circus
2880 LVB

Has an actual circus and a carnival midway with games and rides. Also features a 5-acre theme park (the Adventure Dome) with roller coasters, laser tag, and an IMAX theatre.

Slots-a-Fun   2890 LVB

Casino only; no hotel.

Rub the butts of the bronze Crazy Girls statues outside for good luck

 Riviera  2901 LVB

The sister of the Wynn, and right next to it.

Encore 3121 LVB

The most expensive joint on the Strip.

Wynn 3131 LVB

Treasure Island  3300 LVB

Very popular (and free) pirate battle shows.

Little sister of the Venetian.

Palazzo  3325 LVB

"With two historians on retainer, The Venetian takes very seriously the integrity of the resort's architectural authenticity. Look for singing gondoliers, mask makers, glass-blowers, and other artisans in St. Mark's Square." (from the now-defunct Access Las Vegas)

The Venetian
3355 LVB

3400 LVB

Popular exploding volcano (free). Tropical rainforest in 100-foot dome. More about the tiger attack on Roy Horn in 2003.

A small low-roller joint.  Crowded and low ceilings.

 Casino Royale  3411 LVB

 Harrah's  3475 LVB

Chinese theme, sort of. Most of the hotel rooms have balconies -- rare in Vegas. One of the best values on the Strip, along with Stratosphere, Sahara, and Circus Circus.

The Quad
3535 LVB

Caesars Palace
3570 LVB

Roman theme. Moving statue show at the end of the Forum Shops.

One of the oldest hotels on the strip.

The Flamingo  3555 LVB

Boutique hotel, on the site of the former Bill's Gamblin' Hall, which was itself the former Barbary Coast.

The Cromwell  3595 LVB

Bellagio 3600 LVB

One of the most luxurious casinos in Vegas, along with The Venetian and the Wynn. The outside water fountain show is a free, must-see attraction.

 Bally's  3645 LVB

One-third scale Eiffel Tower (50-stories), offers great view of the Strip, though it's not free. Oddly enough, they don't offer French roulette (single-zero) on the main floor, though they sometimes have it in the high limit room.

 Paris  3655 LVB

Cosmpolitan  3708 LVB

As of 12/10, the newest casino in Vegas. Four-story ceiling (highest in Vegas).

Planet Hollywood 3667 LVB

Aria  3730 LVB

In CityCenter. As of 12/09, the 2nd newest casino in Vegas.

Monte Carlo  3770 LVB

Monaco theme; lots of marble, chandeliered domes, ornate fountains. Single-zero Roulette

New York-NY 3790 LVB

NY theme, done to the hilt. Outside you see skyscrapers and the Statue of Liberty. Inside, their roller coaster cars look like yellow taxicabs.

Movie theme.

 MGM Grand  3799 LVB

Excalibur  3850 LVB

Medieval theme; Fantasy Faire midway

Probably the oldest Strip property.

 Tropicana 3801 LVB

Luxor  3900 LVB

This is the Big Black Pyramid That Shoots the White Laser Into the Sky. There's also a huge sphinx out front. But inside, the Luxor has done away with the Egyptian theme.

Reason I like Bovada #2:

Good Odds

Bovada online casino ad

The odds are always against you when you gamble, so it pays to play at a casino that offers good odds. I spent some time looking for an online casino with good odds, and I found it in Bovada. Let me first tell you about the competition, though.

It's disappointing that most online casinos are greedy when setting the odds on their games. They think they'll make more money by setting the games tighter, so the player has less chance of winning, but they're wrong. Most gamblers eventually gamble away all their playing budget anyway. They're going to lose the same amount of money no matter what, the only question is how long it takes them to do so. And when they play at a tight casino and lose quickly, they're less likely to return.

A casino which offers good odds will make just as much money as a tight casino, because the players will usually gamble away whatever they deposit anyway, no matter what the odds. The only difference is that with better odds, they'll get to play longer before they go bust. And that means they had more fun in the process, and they're more likely to return.

Bovada is one of they few casinos that understands this. They offer games with good odds, knowing that if your money lasts longer, you'll be a happier, loyal customer. Among their offerings are:

  • Two blackjack games returning over 99.8%
  • Single-0 roulette
  • Full-pay Jacks or Better (99.54%)
  • Nine other video poker games returning over 99%

You don't have to play at Bovada, but wherever you play, make sure they offer odds at least this good!

All in all, I think Bovada is the best bet for U.S. players.
