Until recently, a wide variety of full pay video poker was available, but schedules have been downgraded almost across the board. The best games right now are (4) 25 cents slant tops with NSUD just outside the karaoke lounge plus a few banks of 9/6 JOB machines.
The play $10, receive $10 in free slot play coupons in the 2012 editions of the LVA and ACG require you play one day and return for the free play the afternoon following or anytime before year end. I managed to recoup the cost of my ACG while playing off the free play this year. We found the personnel staffing the slot booth to be both friendly and informative.
Its location behind Bally’s allows people staying on the Strip to visit. My wife and I always rent a car so we make frequent visits for the free drinks, bargain basement dining and free slot play using coupons from both the ACG and LVA. There are a limited number of outdoor parking spaces, be careful to not use those for the adjoining Super 8 Motel, but we usually end up in the parking garage.
On our current vacation we have visited Ellis a total of 5 times. Frist to play our $10 ACG slot play coupon - the free slot play is credited sometime the following day, but may be redeemed anytime before year end. My wife and I played on ours on the 4 slant tops that have NSUD. We made 4 other visits to have few drinks courtesy of the ACG free drink coupons. We also had breakfast using yet another ACG coupon good for a 2/1 entree. Servers at bar and restaurant were very friendly.
We dropped by the Ellis Island Casino during our most recent trip to Las Vegas to use the 2 for 1 food coupon in the restaurant and the play $10 get $10 free play coupon which are in the ACG. They were running a promotion in which you pick 6 numbers like Keno at the players kiosk and can win prizes for getting at least 3 right. I got 3 right and won a free pizza or sub sandwich. I took the sub sandwich.
Small casino but well worth signing up for players card, use ACG coupons. Good BBQ outdoor restaraunt, famous steak special in the restaraunt inside, onsite brewery (try the rootbeer!)Crap table open in the evenings. Haven't stayed at the hotel so no comment.
