Las Vegas is the ultimate adult playground. But would you believe there are dozens of casinos in town that tourists rarely step foot in? They’re our hidden gems — locals’ hangouts. And make no mistake — they treat their locals right!
Longhorn Casino is next door to Wal-Mart on Boulder Highway…
My favorite food special is the $1.99 late night breakfast: Bacon, eggs, toast, and hash browns.
As far as Vegas casinos go, Longhorn might be considered a “hole-in-the-wall.” It’s packed every night.
It’s even quite busy in the day! The feature attraction is the daily blackjack tournament at noon. For only $10 you can with cash, gift certificates, and other prizes if you can outlast about 10-15 opponents. You also get a “free ace” that you can play at the cash tables for up to $5. Incredibly, even though Longhorn is only about a mile from Thousand Trails, I’ve only made it here about 3 times in the past 5 months!
And would you believe I can’t beat these senior citizens? One thing you should know if you should ever try your hand at these tournaments : The 55+ crowd knows what their doing!
