Where to Find the Cheapest Roulette in Vegas

You’ve likely noticed that table minimums on roulette are steadily increasing at casinos up and down the Las Vegas Strip. While $5 tables were once common, now, $10 – $15 seems to be the new baseline. Even worse, many of those tables are the new triple zero variation of the game which increases the house edge. So, where can players still find cheap roulette in Vegas?

We thought it would be helpful to put together a list of casinos that offer low minimums, and in turn, the cheapest roulette in Las Vegas.

Note that roulette minimum bets are typically lower mid-week or early in the morning when demand is lower. When hunting for low minimums, we would also recommend getting away from “touristy” areas like the Strip and Fremont Street. As you’ll see, most of the cheapest roulette spots below are off the beaten path.

Quick disclaimer: Casinos can, and do, adjust minimum bets and limits on table games frequently. Although we’ll do our best to keep this guide to finding the cheapest roulette in Las Vegas up to date, we always recommend double-checking with the property before stopping in to avoid surprises.

Cheap Roulette On (And Near) The Las Vegas Strip

Although live $5 roulette on the Strip is impossible to find, there are options nearby if you’re willing to walk or take a cheap ride.

Ellis Island: Located behind Bally’s, Ellis Island is a short 15-minute walk from the strip and is home to a $5 minimum roulette game.

OYO: The resort formerly known as Hooters offers roulette with a $5 minimum daily. OYO is a short walk from the Strip, located behind Tropicana and MGM Grand, and is worth the walk for those looking to stretch their dollar.

Cheap Roulette Downtown Las Vegas

Unfortunately, no downtown Las Vegas casinos currently offer roulette minimums below $5, although $5 tables can be found during non-peak times. While nights and weekends can make $5 tables harder to find, casinos like El Cortez, Main Street Station, California, and Downtown Grand will typically be dealing the cheapest games.

Cheap Roulette Away From the Strip

Finding $5 roulette, and even sub-$5 roulette is much easier if you venture away from the Strip and Downtown and into the locals market. Spots like Jerry’s Nugget or casinos under the Station Casinos banner are good bets to find a $5 or cheaper roulette game.

Notable Alternatives to Finding Low Roulette Minimums

Electronic Games: Almost every casino in Las Vegas now has electronic roulette games that offer lower minimums than traditional tables. Electronic games that don’t require a dealer either mechanically spin a real ball in a traditional wheel under glass, or rely on a random number generator to produce results. Especially if looking for cheap roulette on the Strip, electronic games could be a good option.

Stadium Roulette Games: More and more resorts are embracing stadium-style gaming that allows one dealer to facilitate a game for a large number of players. Although the dealer spins a ball just like on a felt table, players place their bets on individual betting screens. Although a stadium roulette game won’t give you the same feeling of sitting at the felt, they frequently offer lower minimums than their traditional counterparts.
