Stay there? Some people LIVE there.

I understand its the only place in town that offers 3:00am Bingo which can be a real laugh when drunken poker dealers show up or people show up for Bingo and its a grand total of 12 people playing.



God help you if you live there. If I lived there I'd blow my brains out. Just thinking about that place makes me want to OD on pills. I could swear I read that exact same statement in the Wizard's review. Maybe I'm paraphrasing, I don't know. I wish the Wiz had more scathing reviews. Reading his review on this casino did amuse me tho, cuz as mild as he always is, he did come across as EXTREMELY unimpressed.

Where's the review located? I tried looking around and Googling it but I came up short.
Would you happen to have the link handy?
Thanks.

Arizona Charlie's is like a big version of the Western, for those who remember that downtown property. I believe much of their clientele practically live there on their Social Security check. I'm not going to put that down. It may be the only fun these people have left.
It's not whether you win or lose; it's whether or not you had a good bet.

I think you google Wizard of Vegas Blackjack Survey. Then you get a list of casinos. And you click on one, most of them are reviewed. I believe that is where I read it. There's nothing in there about ODing on pills, FYI...in case that wasn't completely obvious. I just think it would have been a better review if there was. Did you know the Luxor isn't black? It's bronze! See the Wizard's review.

I think the government subsidizing casinos via the social security fund is criminal.

I stayed here for part of the trip. Very cheap if booked online thru expedia, hotline, etc. No resort fees. Didn't want to spend all my comps. DON'T STAY HERE. People are super scrubby. I had to pound on the wall to get the idiots next door to shut up. There are people racing...and I literally mean having races...in the hallway at 4 AM.
Did I mention the people were scrubby? Ate at the diner. Someone with an oxygen tank at one table, someone with no teeth at another. Not to slam on people who need oxygen, but if you have serious health issues, why are you pissing away your money at chincy casino? Don't think he was an AP. Don't think he was rich, cuz he'd be at a 5 star and would have nice clothes. And if you have no teeth, why are you spending money at the casino instead of at the dentist!!!!!!!!!!!

These people are low class. The employees didn't seem terrible. I'm pretty sure the Wizard makes the same comments about the clientele, except less bluntly. So yeah, don't stay there unless you're crazy. You can get good prices at nicer places on Groupon. Or just pay the same rate plus a resort fee for a strip hotel. It's worth it.



Just went there this past Sunday, and what you say is still true. It's a pathetic place with a lot of drunks and bums. The buffet is poor quality and the casino is smokey. This place is as bad as it gets.

Where you expecting it to be good? It's way off the beaten path and nothing but a low low low end Orleans

I went there for the DD blackjack game. At the carving station at the buffet I asked what the meat was. Guy said New York steak, but it was roast beef.
