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.

The Vegas Strip casinos, from North to South

<<west side of the street east side of the street>>

   2000 S. LVB (Las Vegas Blvd.)

Formerly the Stratosphere, this is the big tower, which provides the best view of Vegas. There are three super-scary thrill rides at the very top.  Best hotel value on the Strip.  Table games area of the high limit room is non-smoking (super-rare in Vegas).

 Sahara 2535 S. LVB

The Beatles stayed here in 1964. A thriving Rat Pack casino back in the day.  It was renamed "SLS" for 2014-19, then reverted to Sahara on 8/29/19.

Circus Circus
   2880 S. LVB

Has an actual circus and a carnival midway with games and rides. Also features a 5-acre theme park (the Adventure Dome) with roller coasters, laser tag, and an IMAX theatre.

  2890 S. LVB

Casino only; no hotel.

Resorts World
  3000 S. LVB

The newest casino in Vegas.

Encore 3121 S. LVB

The sister of the Wynn, and right next to it.

Wynn 3131 S. LVB

Treasure Island  3300 S. LVB

They discontinued the pirate battle shows, but the big pirate boat is still out front.

Palazzo 3325 S. LVB

Little sister of the Venetian.

The Venetian
3355 LVB

"With two historians on retainer, The Venetian takes very seriously the integrity of the resort's architectural authenticity. Look for singing gondoliers, mask makers, glass-blowers, and other artisans in St. Mark's Square." (from the now-defunct Access Las Vegas)

3400 S. LVB

Popular exploding volcano (free). Tropical rainforest in 100-foot dome. More about the tiger attack on Roy Horn in 2003.

 Casino Royale
3411 S. LVB

A small low-roller joint.  Crowded and low ceilings.

 Harrah's 3475 S. LVB

Linq  3535 S. LVB

Home of the big ferris wheel.  Most of the hotel rooms have balconies—rare in Vegas. Formerly Imperial Palace.

Caesars Palace
  3570 S. LVB

Roman theme. Moving statue show at the end of the Forum Shops.

The Flamingo
 3555 S. LVB

Boutique hotel, on the site of the former Bill's Gamblin' Hall, which was itself the former Barbary Coast.

Bellagio 3600 S. LVB

One of the most luxurious casinos in Vegas, along with TheVenetian and the Wynn. The outside water fountain show is a free, must-see attraction.

 Bally's  3645 S. LVB

 Paris  3655 S. LVB

One-third scale Eiffel Tower (50-stories), offers great view of the Strip, though it's not free. Oddly enough, they don't offer French roulette (single-zero) on the main floor, though they sometimes have it in the high limit room.

3708 S. LVB

 Planet Hollywood  3667 S. LVB

Formerly Aladdin.

Aria  3730 S. LVB

Park MGM
3770 S. LVB

The only non-smoking casino in Vegas!  Formerly Monte Carlo.

New York-NY
  3790 S. LVB

NY theme, done to the hilt. Outside you see skyscrapers and the Statue of Liberty. Inside, their roller coaster cars look like yellow taxicabs.

MGM Grand  3799 S. LVB

Movie theme.

Excalibur  3850 S. LVB

Medieval theme; Fantasy Faire midway

 Tropicana  3801 S. LVB

Probably the oldest Strip property.

Luxor  3900 S. LVB

This is the Big Black Pyramid That Shoots the White Laser Into the Sky. There's also a huge sphinx out front. But inside, the Luxor has done away with the Egyptian theme.

Mandalay Bay

Beheaded Lenin statue; imprisoned sharks. Free monorail runs to Luxor and Excalibur.

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 mean reason Bovada is the only online casino that gets advertising space on my site.  I hope other casinos will eventually start treating their visitors like human beings rather than walking wallets, but until they do, there's Bovada.  One click and you're in.
