“"Great local casino...friendly and inexpensive entertainment"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

When we go to Las Vegas every year, we look in the outlying areas to try out some of the local
casios for a change of pace. This past year we went to several in Henderson and had a great
time. One of our best finds was the Emerald Island Casino that advertises as "the only all penny
casino." When we first entered the casino we met Lisa, one of the managers, who started
talking with us like we were old friends. She fixed us up with a casino card, a half-price meal, and
came by to check on us periodically. We've never experienced this type of friendly service any
place else. What we also appreciated was the fact that she was also from Texas and worked
with her husband in several other casinos before coming to the Emerald Isle.

This is a small local casino, but emphasizes making everyone seem welcome. We definitely will
be making another trip to Henderson the next time we go to Vegas to visit with Lisa and playing
the penny slots and enjoying their small, but very good restaurant. The only negative thing we
found was the fact that it was too smokey--much needed vents! Everything else was A+.

“Not for non-smokers”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The atmosphere was so smokey my eyes burned and I had to leave the last time I was there. The time before I ate in the restaurant. The price was too high for no-eatable food. Go at your own risk.

Food is ok, a lot to choose from, Inexpensive. Good place to go after you have been out drinking. Restaurant is a little dirty.

“Nice, glad we went”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

usually like to stay out on Fremont Street and venture out to casinos around town. This casino is not large, but is ALL penny slots. Won more $$ here than downtown old Vegas. Waitresses are around to comp drinks, very friendly staff. Off the beaten path in Henderson - but in the downtown area and safe area. They run a lot of specials during the day, and it is a local fav place. Glad we went by.
