Located on Fremont Street, in the heart of Downtown Las Vegas, Golden Gate has been serving shrimp cocktail alongside its full casino since 1906.
The historical landmark casino is very small compared to many of its neighboring casino resorts, and even by downtown Las Vegas standards. However, it offers a few features that the larger casinos cannot provide — hassle free gaming without the expense of the Vegas Strip.
Golden Gate Hotel and Casino went through a massive renovation including its casino floor, which holds all of your favorite games with odds that are hard to find elsewhere in Las Vegas.
The casino floor at Golden Gate has a lot to offer and it blends the latest in slots and video machines with a high limit blackjack area, traditional craps and table games and go-go dancers in the pits.
While the Golden Gate Casino is not as big as the mega resorts on the Strip, the casino has an exciting selection of table games. At the casino the tables offer 10 times odds and you will find baccarat, craps, and roulette.
The casino’s blackjack has $5 to $2,500 limits and pays out 3 to 2 on natural. There are also a few Free Bet Blackjack tables with $5 to $1,000 limits.
The casino offers newer table games like Roulette with $5 to $1,000 limits and $5 to $200 3-card poker and Let It Ride. There is also obscure games like a house version of Texas Hold ‘Em as well as a regular roulette wheel with two zeros in the back of the pit.
Golden Gate Casino will let you play the latest slots, progressive jackpots and video poker games as well. Slot machine gaming is certainly the best feature of the casino, which is home to over 250 different machines.
In the slot gaming area you will find games such as Da Vinci Diamonds, Monopoly, and Wheel of Fortune. The video poker selection at the casino is limited, however, you will find 8/5 Bonus Poker.
There is a high limit area at the casino where you can try your luck at blackjack with limits starting at $50. Golden Gate even has Pai Gow poker if you want to try something new.
At 6pm every day, the casino floor is transformed into a party pit with scantily clad dealers everywhere. What’s more, the rules and payouts at the party pit games are the same, day and night, unlike some other casinos.
Additionally, the casino doesn’t have a poker room or sports book, which means you will have to visit other properties like the Plaza Hotel and Casino, Golden Nugget Hotel and Casino and the California Hotel and Casino in order to get those things if you want them.
Casino Bars and Lounges
If it is drinks you crave, the Golden Gate has two onsite bars and lounges for you to make the most of. Located near the casino’s table games, Bar Prohibition is the only casino bar at Golden Gate.
Serving great drinks in a comfortable and relaxed setting this classic casino bar is a great spot to have a cold beer or cocktail, chill out, watch a game or play video poker. Bar Prohibition also has a specialty cocktail menu featuring several classic prohibition-era cocktails.
OneBar is Golden Gate’s other bar and lounge on the Fremont Street Experience. This Las Vegas bar serves a great array of drinks, cocktails and ice cold beer. The bar also features sexy, bikini-clad bartenders dancing to the energetic and rocking beats of the Fremont Street Experience.
