Not glitzy, but sold 3:2 blackjack, $5 minimum, single deck, double deck. Very old school, not the best machines if your a slot player, but solid place if you’re a table games guy.

This casino is "old school" Las Vegas in a great way. Low table limits, great gaming rules, old time slots that still take coins, the latest slots, live keno and very friendly staff. I added many photos of my visit and I will return.

The El Cortez is an original Casino from the past but has the lowest priced slots and table games in Las Vegas. Definitely stop here

We keep coming back here because it's just so darned cool. The old school charm can never be replicated in those gaudy behemoths on the strip. The best place to play for low-rollers: $5 single-deck blackjack which still pays 3:2 on a natural, Roulette with...More

My wife stopped in here once to play 3:2 double-deck blackjack, and must say we truly enjoyed ourselves. We loved the 'old Vegas' atmosphere, the oldies music, dealers, pit bosses, and drink service were all great. We would definitely return.
