Well, there are no secrets here, no gimmicks or glitter. El Cortez has been the cornerstone of Downtown and an icon of classic Vegas for more than seventy years. What you see is what you get, and what you get is a piece of vintage Vegas and an experience you can’t find anywhere else. We’re a family-run casino, unburdened by the trappings and constraints of corporate ownership. We’re a part of Downtown, and Downtown is a part of us. You can see it in the smile of a bartender, and hear it in the jingle of one of our classic coin slots. You can feel it in the air. When you play at El Cortez, you really feel like you are a part of something. Not just the Vegas that people see on television and movies, but the real, legitimate, feel-it-in-your-bones Las Vegas.
