Tropicana Casino and Hotel

3801 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV | 702-739-2222 | Tropicana Las Vegas

Tropicana is near the south end of the Las Vegas Strip. It borders Harry Reid International Airport. Tropicana is in a great location for those who fly into Las Vegas and do not want to worry about traffic on the way to the airport when leaving. The other casinos at this intersection are Excalibur, MGM Grand, and New York-New York.

There is a proposal to implode Tropicana and replace it with a baseball stadium and new resort. That is still in the planning stages and may not become a reality.

Tropicana is operated by Bally’s. It is the only casino in that section of the Las Vegas Strip that is not operated by MGM Resorts. It tends to offer a better value than its nearby competitors. It is smaller than its neighbors on Las Vegas Blvd.

Tropicana has two showrooms. One is a comedy club. The other is a traditional theater. The hotel has around 1400 rooms. It has a few restaurants and a casino bar.

Tropicana casino

The casino is about 50,000 square feet. There are about 600 slot machines and 30 table games. There are a couple of electronic table games next to the pit.

Most of the casino floor is slots. There are a few video poker machines and electronic table games. The bar has some of the best $1 video poker on the Strip. However, it does not open until 5pm most days.

There is a William Hill ticket counter at Tropicana. The former viewing area was converted into a restaurant several years ago.

Table games

Tropicana deals baccarat, blackjack, craps, roulette, Fortune Pai Gow Poker, Heads Up Hold’em, roulette, and Three Card Poker. It is one of the few Las Vegas casinos with Heads Up Hold’em and Fortune Pai Gow Poker. The casino floor has a 3/2 blackjack game. There is one in the high limit room, but its hours seem limited based on our observations.

Double and triple zero roulette are dealt. Craps is up to 3-4-5 times odds. The field pays double on 12.

Poker room

Maverick Gaming announced that it would reopen the Tropicana poker room later in 2024. The timing seemed odd based on the unknown A’s stadium status. The Tropicana last had a poker room in 2012. That one had the bad luck of opening on April 15, 2011, online poker’s so-called “Black Friday,” a day that essentially destroyed the thriving US online poker market and sent poker into a decline. The closest poker room is at MGM Grand.

There are multiple shows at Tropicana. Two tribute shows take place in the Tropicana Theater while The Laugh Factory hosts comedy and magic shows.
