I think of Railroad Pass as merely 'truck stop' level ambiance (or maybe slightly above) so not as scruffy & down at the heels as some of the other genuine dumps on your list. They have some actual hotel rooms, so there'd be some disturbingly legitimate type visitor/customers inside. It was owned by MGM/Mirage until they unloaded it several years ago.
This is nowhere near as spiffy & highfalutin' as Cannery, or even the Longhorn dump, and since your list will already put you kind of in the same general neighborhood, on LV Blvd North, in the fabulous City of North
I only hear about someone getting whacked in the parking lot about half as often here compared to Silver Nugget. And as far as I know, also without the SN's infamously dense infestation of bedbugs living in the casino carpet and feasting on ghetto gambler legs. So what could possibly go wrong with sending some visitors up there? I assume you are reasonably street wise and at least somewhat used to the unwritten rules of getting along in a very urban environment. Or plan to get that way.
So after that, if you'd like to push on further in that same direction:http://luckyclublv.com/
Seriously dumpy, and substantial size for a dump, with more than token table games. You can eat there.
Yeah, the Eureka & surrounding apartment blocks are known as a place to score certain informally dispensed goods & services that may not be exactly legal, or to start a rumble with rival groups & curbside entrepreneurs and whatnot, but no table games there. They have slots, slots, and also some slots. And booze.
I think Club Fortune is actually kinda nice, in a very unpretentious local working-class neighborhood joint kinda way. For a place behind a K-Mart. I am at times a sleazy slut in my casino requirements compared to some folks, but the owner out there did put a surprising amount into spiffing it up by neighborhood standards, and IMO I'd say this little joint is considerably nicer than Circus-Circus, or a step up from the Flamingo on the Strip. But it would qualify for triple extra bonus points for extreme obscurity for actual tourists, if that's part of the goal of this expedition.
