Considering how huge Caesars Palace really is, the actual gaming area feels remarkably small. The Palace Casino retains its 1966 intimacy, with low ceilings and high stakes. The Colosseum Casino offers a Pussycat Dolls–themed gaming pit and (creepy) ShuffleMaster automated table games. The Forum Casino boasts high ceilings, soaring marble columns, graceful rooftop arches, and embraces the middle market with 5¢ and 25¢ slots and lower limits (but more stringent rules)
on table games. Across the board, video-poker pay schedules are liberal. The best place to gamble in Caesars Palace is in the race and sports book. With six 12-foot-by-15-foot oversize screens, a 20-by-50-foot LED board, and 12 50-inch plasma screens, the Caesars book is like an IMAX theater for sports. The spacious, adjacent poker room is pretty nice, too.
