Instead of occupying one giant space, Encore's gaming floor is broken up into tiny salons, separated by columns and exquisite red curtains. Thanks to floor-to-ceiling windows, each of the parlor-style casino areas has a garden or pool view. The gaming is surprisingly diverse, with a variety of low-minimum tables and slots (yes, you can play $10 blackjack here). The main-floor high-limit room features mostly baccarat; upstairs, even more exclusive area named the Sky Casino features tables with betting limits in the stratosphere. Noticeably absent from Encore's gaming operation are a sports book and poker room; to place these bets, head to Wynn Las Vegas. Guest room keys double as players' cards and track play over the duration of each stay.
