    The Western

    Has anyone played here? I went in there on my last trip and was just so amused that a place like that exists.

    We thought about betting $2, $2, $2, $200 just to see what would happen.

    Just to play matchplay coupons. Because they don’t have a player’s card, it is difficult to track how often you use them. The bad news is that even though it’s only 2 blocks from EC, it is not the greatest 2 blocks. Especially at night.

    When you go into the Western, they search you for a weapon. If they don’t find one, they’ll ISSUE you one for your own protection!

    Some of my most memorable casino moments were at the Western. zg

    The blackjack there sucks. But the place could be a godsend to a crackhead in need of a connection.

    I was there once and I didn’t think it was too bad but then again it was around 11am so im sure that helps a lot. I’ve been at the el cortez late at night and everyone says the Western at night is worse so i can only imagine.

    Now it’s history. This place is closing. I doubt if anyone here will miss their 6-5 BJ game.
    I used to park in the El Cortez garage and then walk to this place to use a match-play coupon. I never really felt safe and I now wonder why I took the risk to redeem a lousy five-dollar matchplay!

    Haa, sounds like the kind of place I might avoid

    It used to remind me of the saloon bar in the first Star Wars flick, that was some years ago when they were busier late.
    I used to get down the GGambit 1D betting with 3×25 – 1×125 there regularly. zg
