East of the 15 and west of Koval works for me.

Yeah, but there are no non-strip casinos between I-15 and the Strip, and the only casino between LVB and Koval is OYO.

When they had a Comic Convention there about five years ago, they made a big deal of it being on the strip. As did the short-lived comic shop that opened in the mini-mall across from it.
Cancun used to advertise it was a South Strip location.
The difference between fiction and reality is that fiction is supposed to make sense.

I still consider South Point on the strip.

It is just a 20 minute jog assuming a 4 minute mile.

South Point is not on the Strip, by any reasonable definition. I asked about cases that could go either way, but with South Point, thereís no gray area. Itís not a Strip property.

Based on this, I'll continue to list Tuscany as a casino.

Casino Royale was already listed as a casino because of my earlier criteria of "has table games, OR on the Strip".

Per that criteria, Slots-A-Fun was listed as a casino and I'll continue that, even though slightly fewer than half of voters think it should be a casino. That one is pretty much a coin toss, so I'm making an editorial decision.

Same deal for whether OYO is a Strip property. If voting had been overwhelming for OYO as a Strip property, I would have listed it as such, but when opinion is split right down the middle, I'll continue to list it as "Close to the Strip".

(1) Iím a bit pedantic about this and Iíd consider any property with an active gambling license to be a casino. Yes, that would include things like bar with VP and apparently some grocery stores have slots in Nevada.

(2) Yes. Has a gambling license.

(3) Yes. Has a gambling license.

For 1-3, my preferred approach is to have a filter for ďhas table gamesĒ. I also donít think that by defining casino broadly youíre obligating yourself to write about every tiny 2 slot machine bar in Nevada.

(4) Iíd say no. For me this is more about how I think of Vegas and it feels like a meaningful detour from the strip to get there. And it doesnít have an address on the boulevard. I think of it like Ellis Island. Close but not on the strip. I suspect itís probably even a bit farther from MGM Grand than Ellis Island is from Ballys.



I guess another thing that I should have pointed out is that, by volume and by revenue, the vast majority of casino visitors play slots. For that reason, I don't even think it should be asked, "Does not having Table Games disqualify a place from being a casino," but rather, "Would NOT having slots (these places would be called, 'Card Rooms,' in other jurisdictions) mean that you shouldn't brand yourself as a casino?'"

I agree with #1 above if we restrict that notion only to Nevada. Slot parlors in West Virginia, for example, cannot legally call themselves casinos whatsoever, offer any sort of players club or offer ANY incentive to gamble at all aside from free coffee, soda/pop/sodapop/coke/fizzycarbonatedwater-caffeineoptional-beverage and little snacks. They can offer other free foods if they choose (I know of one that has or had free little pizza) or food discounts (one parlor in a restaurant has a special menu and also offers/offered 50% off of the regular menu, if playing.)

But, they definitely can't call themselves, 'Casino.' 100% illegal.
