If you are familiar with Downtown Las Vegas, chances are you have already gambled in Plaza casino. If you haven’t, get ready to love it.
Plaza is, without a doubt, an icon of Las Vegas. It is one of the few properties that has managed to marry a vintage Vegas vibe with a very modern product.
For that reason alone, Plaza casino is a bit special and a must-visit of Downtown Las Vegas.

Plaza has a commanding position Downtown. It is located at the very top of Fremont Street, where it stood sentry for more than 50 years.

Gambling at Plaza casino
Plaza casino is easily one of the very best places in Las Vegas to place a bet, whether you’re a novice or a seasoned gambler.
There are more than 700 slot machines in the casino, and they are a great mix of classics, modern favourites, and brand new. In fact, Plaza seems to get newer games before many others in Las Vegas.
The machines are very nicely spaced out as well, They are not overly crammed in and are situated around clear walkways. Along with high ceilings, it has made Plaza a very easy place to navigate and a pleasant place to gamble.
Fans of the popular Brian Christopher Slots YouTube channel will also want to check out the Plaza casino. They have their own BC Slots area with his favourite machines. Wheel of Fortune also has its own dedicated area within the Plaza casino.
If you prefer table games to slots, Plaza has you well-covered too. As per their website, the following games are available:
- New Saturn Glo Roulette Wheel & New Blaze Roulette table
- Double Deck Blackjack
- Free Bet Blackjack
- Face up Pai Gow Poker with Progressive Jackpot
- 3 Card Poker
- Let It Ride
- Ultimate Texas Hold Em
- Single Zero Roulette
The tables are generally busy, but I have always found the dealers welcoming and friendly, especially to newer, nervous players.
Sportsbook and drinks service
Plaza casino has a good sportsbook that is run in association with William Hill. It’s a decent size and actually has more of a relaxed lounge vibe than anything else. You shouldn’t have any difficulty watching, and betting on, the game, though.
It is easier to get a complimentary drink when gambling Downtown than on the Las Vegas Strip, and Plaza is no exception to that.
Like everyone else, Plaza is susceptible to a bad night in this regard every now and again. However, for the vast majority of time the drinks service at Plaza casino is excellent.
If you are going to Plaza casino, I’d highly recommend signing up for Plaza Rewards. It’s an independent rewards programme that is not linked to any other properties.
However, in my experience they look after their members very well and promotional offers are frequent, especially if you put some money through the casino.
