Being off the strip makes this a great casino full of fun and great entertainment in the bars at night! The food is great in Snaps and the buffet is OK. The rooms are big and very nice to have a frig in the room too! I love this casino!
Dining update – the former Casa Coscina has been shuttered in favor of a limited menu Mexican eatery named Tres Oles. Tacos, burritos and bowls are offered with nothing on the menu exceeding $9.99. In addition to the limited menu, this restaurant is only open for dinner Thur-Sat from 4:30PM to 9:30PM.
Sometime since my last visit, 5 video poker (VP) machines near Marilyn's lounge were upgraded. These machines now offer full pay schedules at the 25 cent level that include Double Bonus (100.17%), 9/6/90 JOB (100%), Double Double Bonus (99.96%), and NSUD (99.73%). Also available at the 5 and 10 cent level are 10-coin NSUD. $4 coin-in are required to earn 1 point on these machines and they are excluded from point multipliers. The bank of 10 coin droppers with 9/6 JOB are still available, but those
do not award any slot club points.
So listen, I've played all up & down the Boulder Strip. I have never found any casino there that treats the customer better. The players club is great. They know how to treat their customer right. Plenty of comps, gifts, promo's & PRIZES! I won $500 free play in a wallet at the player during one of their guest promo's. I really just think they go the extra mile to make me feel like coming back!
I see Westie and I share the same interest in this casino. I like staying here when Sam's Town does not beat the price with comps. Monday night I love the Claudine Castro Latin music in the lounge, 10 to 2am and am happy to have a room nearby to stumble into. Eastside Cannery brews their own beer and it is $1.50 or less so the price of having a lounge seat is pretty inexpensive.
The live poker room only deals limit poker and some tournaments, but four hours of play will give you a free buffet for that day. The poker room manager is one of the nicest I have encountered in Vegas. Mostly locals play, but it is softer than Sam's Town limit and like most places, later in the evening, it can get very soft.
There is a classic coin dropping section of good paying video poker, but these earn no points. There are a very few full pay VP machines near Marilyn's lounge. A very high paying jacks or better is reported to be there, although my buddy did not find it. He did play the 10/7 DB last month.
I keep a Bank of America bank account because I can easily get money anywhere I travel. There is a drive in teller right across the street from the Eastside Cannery and it certainly helps with managing to have enough money, but not too much.
The rooms are great. I used to get a corner room with wall to ceiling glass on two sides, but those cost extra now. There is NO RESORT FEE and seniors can get a $10 a night discount if booking on the phone. There is FREE WIFI.
My buddy just stayed there and the difference in the price of a room versus the strip which is all resort fees now paid for his rental car.
