Welcome to this forum. Glad you enjoy this somewhat out of the way and a bit obscure "low roller" casino.

Yeah, that was an awkwardly stated but sincere statement.

Emerald Island is one of my favorite places to visit in Vegas. I've gone every time I've been in town. Oddly, I think Joker's Wild and Emerald Island are the only casinos in the Vegas area that I've visited on every trip.

I don't think this was meant as an insult.

But, if you insist that it is, then it's insulting the casino and not the member that started this thread.

I also try to visit Jokers Wild on every visit, but never heard of Emerald Isle. Do they have table games or just slots?

FYI: I love Jokers Wild for their quarter craps game.

Emerald Isle is only slots & VP. Rainbow (also only slots) and El Dorado (tables) are less than a block away. The casinos are in downtown Henderson, just south of Lake Mead Parkway, just east WEST of Boulder Highway. It's a very cute, very walkable area. And, for whatever reason, it's the only place I've seen in Vegas where the patrons are universally happy.

It's a favorite of mine as well.

It's refreshing to see people that are able to enjoy life's simple pleasures:

a lit cigarette ... white socks ... and "buy 1 get 1 free" at the tattoo parlor.

How are the amenities at EI? One of the few casinos in LV I don't think I've ever been in.

It's about 400 slots and a coffee shop. The setup is similar to the Rainbow next door, except the Rainbow has the Peppermill-style neon decor, and lacks a slot club. Eldorado is slightly more full-service, with a couple of table games and a seating area where the derelicts (relatively speaking) hang out -- it's either a sportsbook or keno lounge, I forget.
