Hello WoV forum,

I need some help with suggestions.

Situation: I am going to be in Vegas in 2 weeks to meet up and spend some time with my awesome Uncle and Aunt. They are two sweet old-timers who get off on getting "steals" on killer breakfast deals and such. The last time I've been to Vegas with them was over 20 years ago, and they still talk about how fun it was to gamble $0.25 roulettes (max $1) and playing $1 blackjack. They're not rich, nor poor...just simple folks. Their jaws would drop if I suggest going to Bacchanal to pay $60 for a buffet. It would mean the world to me and them to spend a quality weekend with them doing the things they like (eating and gambling) on their level. Even as many times I've been to Vegas I am a bit limited on all the great cheap places to gamble, eat and drink. We will be spending 3 nights, so I'd love as many suggestions as possible to fill all those days! Location-wise, we will be staying at Tahiti Village (timeshare they received from their work) and will have a rental car.

Gambling: I'm looking for real cheap gambling even if the odds are not great. I read the Hooters hotel has $1 blackjack. Is this a video machine, or a live dealer? I bet BJ pays 1:1. Are there any cheap roulettes around Vegas? My aunt loves roulette and even $5 min table would probably scare her. Does Vegas have any old-school nickel slots anymore?

Food: The only thing I can think of is Ellis Island $6.99 steak and eggs. I really need help in this department because we need to fill 3 days. I am going to assume they would want to hit up a buffet and wont want to pay over $10.

I appreciate any help! Thank you.

Last I checked, Silver Sevens had a breakfast for $2.22 that is not listed on the menu. I believe it was two eggs, two bacon and two pancakes.

Sounds like we may be related!

On our annual pilgrimmage we always hit Jokers Wild in Henderson.
Weekdays, it's $1 craps with 10x odds, $1 roulette with 10-cent chips. I think blackjack is $3, though card games aren't my thing.

Hit that lucky number, win $3.50!

You're right, that's amazing! My aunt will be thrilled to play $0.10 roulette. I went to the website and it says "Roulette 10¢ Weekdays and 25¢ on Weekends." Thanks for your help. We'll definitely be hitting Jokers.

Based on recent threads in this forum:
Longhorn's is good slot deals but not so much on live games. Cheap BJ but only one table I think.
Emerald Something in Hendertucky is cheap slots and good food.
Railroad Pass is 3 dollar BJ (pays 3:2), 3 dollar craps, .25 cent roulette. Cheap food. However its in the middle of nowhere so once you are there ... well, you gamble, you eat, you drink, you golf or you go to a car museum. Buffets at Railroad are usually Eight dollars, but TH, FRI, SA, SU will have add ons for certain hours of Prime Rib, Crab Legs, Champagne, etc., so it can range from 12 to 18.00.

SamsTown is supposed to have some older slot machines off in some alcove but I never found them.

Always check how many tables and which shifts.... Jokers Wild is great but I think its One Table for craps (afternoon only) and One table for BJ. Not sure.

If they'd like to have a drink, the last 3 times I went to Vegas, Casino Royale on the Strip had bottles of Budweiser advertised at their bar for $1.00. A casino on Freemont Street Experience whose name I can't remember was advertising and offering mixed drinks for $1.00. The main drag of Freemont Street is not that big and it's lots of fun so you should be able to find the place if they still offer it and they probably do. A couple of rolling carts on the strip were offering delicious street tacos for $2.00.

Thank you Fleastiff, Railroad Pass may be an awesome place to stop if we decide to go to Hoover Dam!

hi lilredrooster. Yes, we'll definitely be drinking. I know my uncle will leave the hotel with two beers in his hands and will need refills in no time. I was thinking of hitting casino royale as they have some low limit tables. My aunt drinks margaritas. I wish buffalo bills was still around for their $1 margs.

Don't forget their $2.49 breakfast! We were there back in November on a Saturday. They had a $2 craps game that got going around 9 AM. I didn't notice the roulette.

Not gambling or food related, but if they like viewing "wildlife," you could stop at Hemenway Park in Boulder City and see the bighorn sheep that hang out there. That was one of our favorite free activities on our last visit.
