Not fancy but does the job
It's a dive but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Cheap food and the machines were paying ok.
Slots a (not so) Fun
No more table games, and very little full pay video poker. Aces and eights at the half dollar level is one. Use your circus circus player card here, even though MGM owns it, they have yet to incorporate them onto the M Life card.
they have dropped a lot of slot games but they some some decent not great video poker pay tables.
I had one of their Nathans dogs very good, but make sure you get the special 2 dogs it is a good deal. I asked for sauerkraut and it costs over eighty cents. Not a good deal.
We walked over from the Riviera recently to check out Slots-A-Fun Casino. It had been many years since we last visited this casino. It is now owned by Circus Circus next door. It is small but less crowded than Circus Circus.
TIMES ARE CHANGING
I don't see this place remaining open for much longer.No more table games, just 3 Virtual Blackjack games..Very few slots...and one animated virtual dog racing game..it was pretty cool but the overall idea I am getting is that they are about to close this place..I don't see how they make enough money to stay open..It is sad because we always enjoyed checking out the place every time we go to Vegas.
This is a great place to snack and drink beer as they have good prices. Not a lot of slots left.
Not much variety in video poker. But they do have lot stakes table games. Cheap dogs and beer what more can you ask for!
Good north strip location next to Circus Circus and across the street from the Riveria. Used to be a great to play $3 Blackjack, was there this past Jan. ALL the table games were gone, including the craps table out front. Snack bar is still open, Good cheap drinks at the bar.
Heading in the wrong direction
This place used to be a fun little place to go when you didn't want a "big casino" experience. But in my last few trips, I have noticed the service has gotten quite poor, and there is little selection in games left. Used to go for the virtual blackjack, but even it has been removed now,,,
Slots Of NOTS!
There is nothing about this place that is good and it's been that way for YEARS! For my life I can't understand what people see in this place. The food is terrible, it's the most smokey place I've ever been, it's extremely noisy, there's just nothing here. I know they have low limits on table games and maybe that's what many see in the place but I'd much rather go downtown to get the lower limits and not have to put up with all the noise, smoke, and weirdos. Yes, that's right...there are more weirdos here than downtown! (at least there were when I was there).
This place is not what is was a few years back...
This place is filthy. The bathroom in this place made some gas station bathrooms look like good. It was stinky, the staff (if you could find someone) were rude and the half the machines were well worn out.
Did not win jack playing here and it seemed to take forever for a drink to come...
This place has really gone downhill. Once a Circus (literally Circus Circus) sideshow, it's turned into an ugly little clown.
Gone are the days of the free doughnuts, and dollar hotdog. This place is rundown, old, dingy, and dirty. There are much better low limit places on the strip. Try O'Shea's, Casino Royale instead of this clown of a place (pun intended)
I visited the casino several times a few years ago....it's small, but the slots pay pretty good. If you want a hot dog and a beer, you can't beat the price.
Slummin on the strip
Circus Circus too classy for you, you say? Then walk next door to this joint. Super tiny stand alone casino. They often advertise $5 tables, which are actually kinda fun. Lousy food completes the package. This place wants to be a grind joint when it grows up...for now it's like going to a closet with games in it.
Now Just Part of Circus Circus
The old slots of fun had a certain low-roller appeal of free popcorn, and real cheap and almost inedible food. Some of the oldest slot machines around, that never seemed to pay out, and a guy handing out coupons for 2 for 1 promos that you would never use (if you really wanted 2 of those awful hotdogs, you were in a minority). But it was small, always busy, and if you wanted a place that you could quickly duck into for a game or two, this was the place. But now, it is branded with the Circus Circus name (it was already owned by Circus Circus for many years) it seems to have lost any appeal it may have had. Now it is an annex to Circus Circus, which isn't a good thing, and probably not long for this world.
Description might need an update
This falls under the category, "If it's working lets mess with it"
The draw used to be cheap drinks and Blackjack. The late night table limits dropped to a buck or two and they still had 3 to 2 payoff on BJ, as well as DAS. One table at least was a two deck hand dealt but you could rarely get a seat without waiting in line, standing behind the table until someone finally gave out and left. The other table had a shoe, 4 or six decks as I recall. I usually played that one until I could snag a seat at the other, by means of hook or crook. Two other tables usually $5 I think, but my memories are foggy at best.
Parking was always a nightmare unless you like long walks late at night through the Circus Circus casino's shopping corridor from the self park back parking garage or the mile long walk of fear from the self park behind the Rivera. You could Valet but $1 BJ players are too cheap.
The best way was the Deuce bus stop in front and directly across the street. Many times I'd catch that bus after midnight and head up there from center strip where we usually stayed back in those days when the gambling on the strip was still decent enough to tolerate. The low buck BJ went on until 11AM the next day, and I'd still be there. They even gave free coffee, sandwiches, and doughnuts to the charred players around 10AM.
Drink service was dreadfully slow but you could always catch a $1.25 Heineken or Corona from the bar in back on the way back from the bathroom, if you hadn't seen a cocktail server since Christ was a carpenter. Eventually she would break away from her ongoing chat with another server or bartender to get drinks for the players, but by that time rigor mortise had set in.
The Slots A Fun was the premier low roller gambling spot on the Strip Bar None!
Sure they had that Craps Table that closed at 11 PM and a couple of roulette tables as well as some OK slots. The best part was the bar top 9/6 Jacks or Better video poker. Yes, I said 9/6 JACKS OR BETTER;).
Well, those days have since past and the gambling now stinks like every place else on the strip. The limits are still lower than most strip properties if you can stand the stale stench of grease, chili dogs, onions, and 10 years of spilled beer and unclean restrooms. I do recall the Men's room used to have an aroma similar to the head on a tuna boat. I think they even had a valet once. I don't know if he was actually employed there or if he just came in from the street to hand out paper towels for a little wine money.
Lest I digress,
The Ace Gold doesn't stop anywhere near there now, the Deuce has gone up and the gambling has gone down. I feel all welled up as I write this, like losing a long time friend to the terminal corporate disease that has become malignant on the rest of the strip.
Now a days I hang out Downtown or on the Boulder Highway where I still feel at home, the way we used to feel on the Strip.
As I write this I can see in my mind that giant slot machine out front, and the Westward HO next door. I'd walk past those sometimes on my way back to the Stardust or Frontier where we sometimes stayed, Coming in at 11:30 AM as my wife was just getting ready in our room to go out for breakfast, and then some gambling and sightseeing for the day.
Oh well as they say, Those were the good old days!
stayed at circus circus 4 days[ 6-1-10 to 6-5-10] craps table was never open until friday night . slots seemed tighter than others.
best background noise
Where else can you sit and relax, listen to some fantastic old tunes (old being a subjective term) and hear the good old sound of actual coins coming out of your machine? I sit there for hours singing along (quietly, of course), drinking some of the best drinks from the very polite bartenders and servers, letting my huge hotdog settle, and checking the quarters for any states I still don't have. Not pretentious, no fancy artwork or chandeliers, but just honest to goodness regular folk.

Visited again 7/10/08. They changed the slots since last time. Tighter than they used to be. The older games are gone.
99 cent foot long hot dog was good. Pay extra for toppings. Leave the 99 cent shrimp cocktail. Tiny salad shrimp on top of chopped onions. We got frozen margaritas in souvenir glasses. I think they left out the booze.
The days of coupon funbooks are over.
Still the best place to park is Circus Circus but valet is slow and unorganized. We couldn't find a self park lot.
I saw a huge cock-roach running along the floor just before we left. I could skip this place next trip.
Fun is in the name
Fun is what they mean! This is a Las Vegas must see. Time will get away from you here!
Yes, it's small and needs a bath, but, slots are lose and drinks are strong. The old machines you can't find anymore are a blast.
Park at Circus Circus and walk across. Be sure to get your coupon book as you leave the Circus Circus building. Great coupons I used!
Don't leave town without a trip to Slots-A-Fun!
Fun at Slots-A-Fun
My first trip to Vegas was Christmas 2006. This little place is fun, not glamorous by any means, but if you want to play slots, and drink for free, it is the place to be.
I won $600 on nickel slots (max bet only $0.25). And like another reviewer stated, the great cocktail waitresses are around to give you another drink when you have just started your last one.
If you are one who can gamble and drink for 20 hours a day, this is one place to hit for a couple hours during your trip!
Hot Dog Heaven
This is the small step-child casino of Circus Circus. They have a free spin machine where you can win anywhere fron .75 cents to 250,000 dollars. This casino is still ALL coin and is a very dark and crowded "room".
The free hotdog and drink coupon from the ACG is the highlight of the casino. Excellent hotdog with any toppings you desire. I got a free coke for my beverage at the bar and it was not worth mentioning. However I'm sure a beer drinker will be pleased with a nice choice of brewskees.
They have 5 cent, 10 cent and 25 cent vidoe blackjack machines, something you don't see in a casino much anymore (especially the 5 cent and 10 cent machines).
Slots a fun
Small place. They have hand pay-out on 1-cent Megabucks slots and I don't like that. Not missing anything. Keep walking.
I was here a few years ago. It is dirty and nasty.
The giant $1 hot dog is disgusting. I took a bite and threw it out. It taste like baloney. The $1 shrimp cocktail is nasty too. It is a small cup filled mostly with lettuce with a few tiny shrimp (smaller than dimes) on top. Also inedible.
We aren't hard to please and find that we spend most of our time at slots of fun.
The dealers and servers are friendly, drink service is very good, the customers all seem to be there just to have fun and they are!
Small casino but this makes it feel good! Met a number of locals who gamble there. Nice people. If you are what I call a casino snob stick to the upper class casinos like the wynn etc.
slots of fun
Let's face it. It's pretty low end but I love it. I can afford to gamble there.
It has the best drink service anywhere in Las Vegas. Just tip, and because of the small size, your server is around the tables before you finish your last one.
Most people, for some reason, are just overall friendly. A lot of the people are just learning to gamble at tables and you can feel at home instead of being intimidated.
Craps is even super friendly. I'll drink and gamble, but you can keep their monster hot dog.
