another update

Stayed at the 4 queens in October so I tried to give Binions some business. But nothing looked inviting compared to the other downtown casinos. The best deal was the picture with the million dollars. They did have a free spin at the entrance with some coupons.

History Only Counts For So Much

I have been to Binion's a bazillion times. I enjoy the "old Vegas" atmosphere but that only goes so far. I am a poker player so their poker history is significant and I have spent many hours playing poker at Binion's. The last time we played there were so many degenerate gamblers at our table it made our experience pretty depressing. The straw that broke the camel's back was this one guy who was extremely intoxicated and continued to slobber and yammer and never acted when it was his turn. He complained and made all kinds of noise and it slowed the game to a crawl. I asked the poker room manager why they don't get rid of the guy and he said that management wants it this way. So they don't care if a moron disrupts the experience for 8 other people, as long as they get as many playing as possible. And I have been told that poker room manager and fixture Carol has finally left after about 40 years.

We left and may not go back. Their coffee shop is one of the oldest and most historical significant downtown and I will miss it. But I won't miss much else from Binion's. RIP.

Crowded.

Only went in to check out the atmosphere and stayed to play the slots for a while. Won pretty often, but didn't like the crowded atmosphere. Seemed everyone was on top of each other. Not enough oxygen.

Famous No More

The hotel component is boarded up (this used to be "the mint" from the 1960s and 70s) and the casino layout, reflecting the casino's growth over time, is confusing, but there is still some history here, and if you walk around to the back of the casino, you still see the poker room where poker really got started in Las Vegas. Unfortunately, the tournaments have moved on (to the Rio), as have most of the big money gamblers. Benny Binion is long gone, and the rest of the casino looks like all the rest along Fremont, which is a bit sad.

nothing special

Went there summer 2005. Place was nothing special. The staff was not friendly to us. Looked rundown. Saw a cross dresser at the craps tables.
