About the Top Ten

1. Room Rates - Four Queens - - $28 and up

The White Castle opening is big news, but it’s not must-see material. Hence, low room rates remain in the #1 spot this month. You can still get rooms, inclusive of all fees, for as low as $28 per night and under $40 at multiple locations. Plus the competition factor sees to it that rotating discounts are showing up all the time. The best way to keep abreast of the current options is by monitoring our room and show deals at And be sure to sign up for the LVA Gold online newsletter, which we send out every week for free.

2. Steak Dinner - Ellis Island - - $7.99

The Ellis Island steak dinner 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.

3. Shrimp Cocktail - Skyline - - $1.49

We stopped in at Skyline for the $1.49 shrimp cocktail and all continues to be as advertised. This is easily the best shrimp deal in town, and one of the best values overall (which is why it’s on the list). It’s served 24/7 at the bar, where there’re also good video poker schedules and even free popcorn.

4. Beer - Casino Royale - - $1

The $1 Michelobs at Casino Royale are even more valuable after the opening of the White Castle, along with other good developments at the casino. There’s also 75¢ draft, but why bother when you can get a bottle for a buck?

5. Buffets - Station Casinos - All locations - - $5.99-$14.99

Station Casinos’ buffets 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.

6. Mac King - Harrah's - - $9.95

Now that the $9.95-ticket offer is back in the MRB, the Mac King Comedy Magic Show is a better value than ever. LVA members don’t have to worry about tracking this discount down, but if you’re not a member, you can usually find the $9.95 tickets at either the players club booth or the concierge, or ask the box office where they’re being distributed.

7. $1 Blackjack - Riviera - - $1

After looking into the situation more thoroughly, we find that the Riviera’s $1 blackjack is a bigger deal than we thought and we’re moving it up to the #7 spot.

8. Prime Rib - Hooters - - $2.48-$7.48

The discounted prices of the Hooters prime rib special, 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.

9. Lunch Comp - Crown & Anchor - - $20 buy-in

We’re going with a deal we know we can trust, the lunch comp at Crown & Anchor. Play $20 through a machine and get a comp for anything on the menu. Hours are 8 am-2:30 pm at the east location (Tropicana/Maryland Pkwy.) and 11 am-3 pm at the west (Spring Mtn./Decatur). If you miss lunch, the offer is extended until 6 pm on the east and 7 pm on the west.

10. Burger & Beer - El Cortez - - $5

Back on the list at #10 is the $5 burger & beer special served around the clock in Café Cortez at the El Cortez. The half-pound hamburger comes with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pickles; a bag of chips; and a 12-ounce brew or soft drink.
