Hit or Stand? 21 or Bust? Officially certified, “Best Blackjack Odds in Las Vegas,” El Cortez Hotel & Casino remains the best spot to double-down in Sin City.
The El Cortez offers single-deck and double-deck games with a 3:2 payment, as well as double-down on any two cards. Players of the double-deck games can double after splits. Both games are available 24-hours-a-day and feature reasonable $5 minimums.
As the longest continuously run hotel and casino in Las Vegas, the El Cortez offers guests the classic Las Vegas scene, transporting you back to the days of Frank Sinatra and the Rat Pack.
Players can enjoy the convenience of Gambling Gourmet, game-side dining which allows guests to dine, play and win all at the same time. Gambling Gourmet is available every day from 7:30am to 10:30pm. After trying your hand at the table games, treat yourself at Happy Feet, a reflexology spa located on the second floor of the hotel, where all El Cortez players receive $10 off the combination massage treatments.
Fun Fact: The property is one of the few Las Vegas casinos to have maintained its original, historic exterior façade, famous signage and classic ranch-themed architecture for over 75 years!
