Although the casino at Luxor has lost almost all of its Egyptian flare, the new modern gaming floor delivers a vibe that's genuinely hip and exciting. A swanky drinking establishment, Highbar, looks out over the casino's high-limit area, offering guests the opportunity to bet with the big boys or just watch. Then, of course, there's The Party Pit, where, on Friday and Saturday nights, girls in lingerie dance mere steps away from blackjack and a handful of other games. In the regular-limit area, table minimums are usually around $15 on weekends, but during the week you might find $10 tables. If poker's your game, heads up; the Luxor's room has received awards from local newspapers and offers special retroactive room rates for players who spend more than five hours at the tables.
