If you want to gamble like royalty without heading overseas, Four Queens Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas might be the best place for you to go. With a New Orleans theme and a beautiful interior design, you can immediately forget about the rush and crowds of the strip and start gambling for real money ñ not just tourism fun. This is an especially good choice when you’re new to the whole idea of gambling. The dealers are quite personable and friendly, helping you figure out the best way to handle your hands ñ though that doesn’t mean you’ll always win (at least you’ll know how to bet in the future).
Located in downtown Vegas, Four Queens also offers first class entertainment at their club, The Canyon. Victor Wooten, The Proclaimers and various shows are coming to the stage within this year. Stage shows are repeated nightly, so donít worry about missing your show.
You will also find great places to eat, many of which aren’t as crowded as the more popular stops along the basic Vegas tour. From Hugo’s Cellar to Magnolia’s Verdana, Queens Coffee and Deli, and Chicago Brewing Company, you can get a taste of nearly any kind of food you like, without a lot of hassle.
If you can tear your eyes away from the flashing signs along the ceilings, you might want to do a little gambling while you’re at Four Queens. Starting with the basic slots and blackjack play, you can ease yourself into winning before finally turn to Keno and Sports Book. Signing up for the Royal Players Club will help you accrue points that can be used for comp charges and other luxuries, so sign up when you walk in (it’s free).
Rooms at Four Queens start as low as $51 during the off season, but go up as the weeks get busier.
