About the Top Ten

1. Grand Bazaar Shops - Bally's - Daily - Free

In this lean year for big openings, we have to celebrate them where we can, which is why the Grand Bazaar Shops at Bally’s is this month’s ceremonial #1 value. But while this opening may seem like a shrug, it’s actually worth a look, as you’ll read throughout this issue.

2. Room Rates - El Cortez - Daily - $30 and up

Room rates move down to #2 this month to make way for the Grand Bazaar Shops, but the deals continue to show up. CET properties are currently running a sale with rooms at Harrah’s and Rio starting at $30 base rate, which works out to a still-good $62 after resort fee and tax. We’ve also solidified our deals with Station Casinos, which have been running base rates at Palace Station as low as $20. These offers are available through our room and show codes at, and be sure to sign up for the LVA Gold online newsletter, which we send out every week for free.

3. Steak Dinner - Ellis Island - 24 hours - $7.99

The Ellis Island steak dinner (#3) is served in the Café and requires that you print out two coupons from an EI kiosk, the second after playing at least $1 in any slot machine with your club card inserted, to get the $7.99 price.

4. Shrimp Cocktail - Skyline - 24 hours - $1.49

The shrimp cocktail at Sky-line (#4) is served at the main bar.

5. Beer - Casino Royale - 24 hours - $1

Michelobs are $1 and draft Coors Light is 75¢ at Casino Royale (#5)

6. Buffets - Station Casinos - All locations - Daily - $5.99-$14.99

Station Casinos’ buffets (#6) are $5.99 for breakfast, $6.99-$7.99 for lunch, and $7.99-$9.99 for dinner and Sunday brunch at Palace, Boulder, Texas, Sunset, and Santa Fe Stations (except $10.99 for dinner and $13.99 on Saturdays at Santa Fe), and $1-$5 more for most meals at Green Valley Ranch and Red Rock; must show a Boarding Pass card.

7. Mac King - Harrah's - Tues-Sat - $9.95

As the price to see a Las Vegas production show rises above $85, the incredible value of the $9.95 Mac King ticket deal (#7) becomes even more obvious. You can usually get the discounted tickets (that come with one drink) at the players club booth or the concierge, or just use the offer in the Member Rewards Book.

8. $1 Blackjack - Riviera - 24 hours - $1

We have to assume that this will be the last month for a while with $1 blackjack on the list (#8). Take advantage of the game at the Riviera, which will be dealt 24/7 till the casino closes on May 4.

9. Prime Rib - Hooters - Daily - $2.48-$7.48

The discounted prices of the Hooters prime rib special (#9), served 5-11 pm in the Mad Onion, are reached by using available new-member club sign-up bonuses and an ongoing matchplay offer for diners.

10. Lunch Comp - Crown & Anchor - Daily - $20 buy-in

The Crown & Anchor lunch comp (#10) runs daily from 8 am to 2:30 pm at the east location and 11 am to 3 pm at the west, and is good for an appetizer until 6 pm on the east and 7 pm on the west.
