Circus Circus is primarily known as a family-friendly casino hotel and inexpensive prices for rooms, but that doesn’t mean the folks here have skimped on proper gambling action.
The gaming floor at Circus Circus represents some 100,000-plus square feet loaded with all the requisite games. Slot machines number 2,200 with denominations running between 1¢ and $25, plus progressive jackpot slots and video poker. The nearby race and sportsbook features 32 high-definition TVs to watch the games.
Sixty-four tables are devoted to gaming, with blackjack taking the lion’s share: Circus Circus has 42 tables devoted to this casino classic, including one-deck, two-deck and six-deck shoe tables. And at seven roulette tables, Circus Circus must be a leader in supplying “The Devil’s Game.” Other table games include craps, Let It Ride Progressive, three-card poker progressive and Ultimate Texas Hold ‘Em.
Finally, in Circus Circus’ “Las Vegas Poker Room” are five tables; on the tournament schedule, the gem is the Texas Hold ‘Em free roll tournament on Sundays at 2pm with $3,000 in guaranteed prizes.
