We didn't gamble much - a few slots and that was it. But the casino was clean, as soon as I sat down I was asked if I wanted a drink. I didn't "win big" (or at all) but it was fun entertainment.

This is the way Vegas used to be. However, the slots are not as "loose" as they once were. Still very nostalgic.

We were told about this casino and wanted to visit because we were told they still have slot machines that take coins. We wanted to experience the old magic of putting coins in a machine. It was so much fun! It's right around the corner...More

Enjoyed our visits to the El Cortez again this summer. The area directly around this casino still looks a little sketchy, but once you get in there it is a nice casino with a friendly staff. Plenty of $5 blackjack and craps, and also plenty...More
