Best thing about Bovada:

Play for free
with no hassles

Most online casinos insult you with popups and spam, and they give you the hard sell even if you just want to try their free-play games.  Fortunately there's Bovada, which is the opposite.  That's the primary reason they're the only online casino I accept advertising from.

  • No registration required.  Most casinos let you play for free with fake money, but there's a catch: They make you register an account first.   That's not just a hassle: after you register you can expect them to badger you by email trying to get you to deposit real money.  But Bovada lets you play right away without forcing you to register an account.  Just close any registration boxes that appear, and then you can play without registering.  Here, try it.
  • Plays right in your browser.  If you'd rather not download the casino software to your hard disk, you don't have to.  The games play right in your web browser.  Nice.
  • Works on Macs.  The play-in-browser games are MacOS compatible!  Before Bovada, Mac users were pretty much out of luck for gambling online, even for free-play.  Not any more.

Bovada's not perfect, but there's no better site serving most of the U.S.

* No table games

† I haven't been able to find a reliable source for the separate gaming area sizes for Circus Circus/Slots-A-Fun, Venetian/Palazzo, Wynn/Encore, only the combined size for each pair.  On 10/18/22 I wrote to each to ask for separate gaming area figures. For Wynn/Encore and Venetian/Palazzo, I'm not listing the combined figure, because that would make each casino look much larger than it really is. However, I'm including the Slots-A-Fun area with the figure for Circus Circus, since CC is one of the smaller casinos and Slots-A-Fun is even tinier.

• 1942 year for airport is when it was built; haven't been able to find when slots came.

(except Golden Nugget, Downtown Grand,
& The Plaza)

(cheaper to gamble)
Mostly 6:5 blackjack

Practice gambling with play money

Before you throw down your hard-earned cash in a casino, PRACTICE FIRST!  Learn the games with play money where it doesn't cost you anything if you lose.  Seriously.

You can play Bovada's games (below) right away without registering for an account.  Most every other online casino makes you give up your email address just to play the fake-money games — ugh.  That's the main reason Bovada is the only online casino that gets advertising space on my site.  (When you see the registration box, you can cancel it and proceed to the game without registering.)
