Fodor's Review

It's fitting that one of the oldest casinos in Las Vegas (circa 1941, to be exact) still offers blackjack the way it should be played: with natural blackjacks paying 3 to 2. Elsewhere on the gaming floor, you'll find single-zero roulette and stickmen offering up to 10x odds on craps. Slots here are plentiful. The sports book, however, is cramped and in desperate need of the same kind of overhaul the Cortez gave its rooms in 2012.
