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
TI: Although not a traditional table, TI offers $3 roulette in a stadium configuration. Players insert money and bet on their personal console, but the dealer still rolls a live game, just for a larger group of players. In addition to cheap roulette, this stadium configuration also deals cheap blackjack.
Sahara and STRAT: Among the last $5 roulette games offered on the Strip, both Sahara and STRAT still offer cheap roulette on the north end.
Ellis Island: Located behind Bally’s, Ellis Island is a short 15-minute walk from the strip and is home to a relatively cheap $5 minimum roulette game.
OYO: The resort formerly known as Hooters offers roulette with a $5 minimum daily. Like Ellis Island, OYO is a short walk from Tropicana and MGM Grand and worth the walk for those seeking a cheap roulette game.
Cheap Roulette Downtown Las Vegas
Unfortunately, no downtown Las Vegas casinos currently offer roulette minimums below $5, although $5 tables are prevalent and easy to find during non-peak times. While nights and weekends can make $5 tables harder to find, places like El Cortez, Main Street Station, California, and Downtown Grand are always good bets.
Cheap Roulette Away From the Strip
Jerry’s Nugget is located in North Las Vegas and offers players the chance to play $2 minimum roulette. After you play, stop into Jerry’s Famous Coffee Shop and try their lauded prime rib.
Club Fortune can be found in Henderson and deals a .25 minimum roulette game daily.
Joker’s Wild may be worth the $10 – $15 Uber ride from the Strip as they offer some of the cheapest roulette in Vegas at a mere .25 cent minimum. Note: Joker’s Wild has temporarily closed their table game pit.
Arizona Charlie’s on the Boulder Highway offers table minimums that start at $4.
Boulder Station offers cheap roulette with table minimums starting at $3.
Cannery, in North Las Vegas, deals roulette games starting at a $4 minimum bet.
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.
Hopefully, we were able to help you make your money last by pointing you to a cheap roulette game with low minimums in Vegas!
