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… even $25 seems to be the new baseline.

Even worse, many of those tables are the new triple-zero variant of the game which increases the house edge.

So, where can players still find cheap roulette in Vegas?

I thought it would be helpful to put together a list of casinos that still offer reliably low minimums.

A couple of quick notes:

  • Roulette table minimums will be lower mid-week and early in the morning.
  • Get away from “touristy” areas like the Strip and Fremont Street.
  • Casinos adjust minimum bets on table games frequently – The information below can change at a moment’s notice.

Cheap Roulette (Near) The 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.


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.

In addition to cheap roulette, OYO also deals a popular $1 blackjack game daily.

Ellis Island

With minimums usually set at $10 (I’ve seen it as low as $5 at times), Ellis Island is a money-saving alternative when compared to games on the Strip.

Ellis is a short 10-minute walk behind Horseshoe and also usually deals both $5 craps and blackjack.

Cheap Roulette Downtown Las Vegas

Unfortunately, no downtown Las Vegas casinos currently offer roulette minimums below $5, although $5 tables can still be found.

While $5 roulette tables are harder to find on busy nights and weekends, casinos like El Cortez, Main Street Station, California, and Downtown Grand will typically be dealing the cheapest games.

Downtown Grand is my personal go-to for cheap table games, as they always deal $1 and $5 blackjack, and commonly offer $5 roulette and craps during non-peak times.

Plaza is a Great Value Option

One of the more compelling roulette values downtown is Plaza, which deals a single-zero game, commonly at a $10 minimum bet.

While not the cheapest roulette table, it’ll give you a better chance to win (or lose less quickly :).

This could be a great option for those looking to slightly improve their odds without blowing their bankroll.

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, South Point, and The Orleans are good bets to find a $5 or cheaper roulette game.

Notable Alternatives to Live Games

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.

The dealer spins a ball just like on a traditional table, however, 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.
