Best Paying Casinos In Las Vegas


Sorry, but we're not referring to the wages earned by employees working in the Hotel Casinos found on this itinerary, so please don't flood their HR departments with coverletters and resumes with hopes of dropping everything in your life and moving to Las Vegas for a high paying gig in action central. Instead, "Best Paying Casinos In Las Vegas" refers to the hotels and casinos with the best overall slot machine payouts, on average and in comparison to the rest. In other words, you can instead drop everything in your life and move to Las Vegas in an attempt to support yourself by playing the slots at the below mentioned casinos. You'd be an idiot to do so, but they are your best bet should you be inclined.

These are loose recommendations based on compiled local (Las Vegas, NV residents) surveys and public data, albeit limited with respect to exact numbers. You can imagine that casino based corporations wouldn't be too forthright in reporting their wins or losses for all eyes to see, except of course to the IRS (wink).


Palms Casino & Resort

4321 W. Flamingo Road, Las Vegas


"One, Two, Three!", just like the reel and stop on a slot machine. That's how many years in a row the Palms Casino has landed this top spot from reputable periodicals in Las Vegas such as the Advisor and Review Journal and now YAHglobal.Com. This title is also rewarded on feedback from the local gaming population of Las Vegas, which as everyone knows, if the locals say so, it must be true. The Palms slot machines continue to be the "loosest" (official term) in the city, so insert whatever pun you wish to validate visiting this casino for a quick buck. Play, get paid, and be on your way before they take it back.


Fitzgerald's Casino & Hotel

301 Fremont Street, Las Vegas


Fitgerald's Casino consistently has the "loosest" slots (again, this is an official term, but imagine the damage this phrase could do with a simple slip of a "u" in place of the "o" in a a certain word. Frat boys would invade these locations on a daily basis, only to be disappointed) in downtown Las Vegas.


Fitzgerald's machines ranked on a regular basis for giving the best payout include reel, progressive, and penny slots.


South Point Hotel & Casino

9777 Las Vegas Blvd, South, Las Vegas


With 2563 machines on site at South Point Hotel & Casino, your options are seemingly endless as your selection of well returning slots increases proportionately. You'll have to do the work and watch the machines from time to time to identify the best bets and make sure you're quick and agile enough to hop over the white haired (some still in rollers) pensioners waiting for certain high paying slots to open up. South Point was a regular at the top of the best ranked paying casinos in Vegas until the Palm swept in over recent years.


Photo: Yes fellas, these ladies play here on a regular basis, but this photo was taken 40 years ago. They've gone through some "changes" since then.


Suncoast Hotel & Casino

9090 Alta Drive, Las Vegas


With over 2400 machines on deck, this off the strip casino knows how to draw in crowds by offering one of the most consistently, in terms of years, paying slot set up in Las Vegas. It might not knock out the return numbers that the Palms is giving back to the gaming public, but it will be sure to remain on this list for years to come. 

Cheap, Convenient & Off The Strip Motels/Hotels In Las Vegas


Information overload. That's what comes to mind when preparing for the daunting task of selecting a hotel in Las Vegas, on your own. That's right. No travel agent assistance, no add-on-to flight package deal, no friend or family member taking care of the booking for you, no 9th caller radio show winning of a pre-bundled trip to Vegas. Nothing.

Also, keep in mind that just because you will be in Las Vegas doesn't mean you are required to stay on The Strip, even though potential travel companions may balk at the idea. Nor do you have to spend more cash than necessary for a room you will only be inside of for about 2-3 hrs a day/night. It is Vegas afterall, sleep is not only a non-prerequisite, it's frowned upon.

For whatever reason, you find yourself heading to Vegas, via road trip or if you scored a flight-only deal, or wake up buried up to your neck in the Nevada desert and need a place to collect your thoughts (after wiggling free) before changing your life, this YAHglobal.Com "Cheap, Convenient & Off The Strip Motels In Las Vegas" will take the work out of making your selection.


"Terrible's" on Paradise Road

4100 Paradise Road, Las Vegas


Reverse psychology rules. With a name like "Terrible's", you couldn't possibly set yourself for disappointment, unless you wanted to have a bad experience in some sadistic way, in which the actual pleasant experience you have at this establishment will come as a "surprise". Located in the heart of Restaurant Row, with gaming, entertainment, dining and fitness activities within its walls, averaging around $40 per night depending on the season, Terrible's not only has the best name in the business, it takes top spot on this list.

Motel 6 on Dean Martin Drive

5085 South Dean Martin Drive, Las Vegas


Motel 6, that's right, we said it. You gotta problem with spending only $30/night a mere minutes walk from the Las Vegas Strip? We didn't think so. Besides, you'll be staying on a road named after Dean Martin, which makes for an interesting photo. Just don't get any thoughts of stealing that street sign as many have tried before. How do you think so many people end up burried up to their necks in the Nevada desert? Las Vegas PD doesn't play around.

Tuscany Hotel & Casino

255 East Flamingo Road, Las Vegas


While not quite a villa in Tuscany, the Tuscany Hotel & Casino puts it's best italian foot forward to make you feel like you are in fact nestled somewhere in this charming town within the "boot", at a very reasonable price averaging $30/night (which includes that pesky LV Resort Fee). This hotel is the best decorated on the list and makes for a nice retreat from the western themes found at many cheap accommodations in Las Vegas.

Super 8 Las Vegas on Koval Lane

4250 Koval Lane, Las Vegas


Throw a number in the name of a hotel/motel (6, 8, etc...) and you know you've got a cheap, convenient, and clean place to lay your head at night or day, depending on when the grip of the Las Vegas strip lets you go for a brief moment. The Super 8 Las Vegas is the world's largest Super 8 (sorry, not a Guinness category) and is located only 1 block from Las Vegas Boulevard. Add in prices starting at $40/night and Super 8 on Koval Lane is one of your safest bets on the list.

America's Best Value Inn on Tropicana Avenue

167 East Tropicana Avenue, Las Vegas


America's Best Value Inn is a non gaming establishment, which is a refreshing break for some that don't come to Vegas to pull the arms off of poor defenseless slot machines. It is also located extremely close to The Strip, while still remaining "Off The Strip" and under the $40 mark, thus finding its place on this list. Found directly across from the MGM Grand Hotel, you never have to worry about feeling too lethargic (usually 2 full nights into your time in Vegas) to make it over to Las Vegas Boulevard.
