It was like a step back in time. They actually had slots that used coins! There were plenty of modern slots as well as the older machines. The cocktails were tasty and rounds were frequent.

My brothers and I were here in Central City for the day, checking out all the casinos. Overall, most of them were about the same. This "Famous" casino was decent, having a good assortment of slot machines. We didn't win any money, however.

The people are very nice and attentive, the gaming is fun and we sometimes win. The food is typical processed casino grade, don't eat there.

The old-timey atmosphere is probably all this has going for it. Stop in, and take a look around, but not much else to see here. There are some table games upstairs, but not much fun happening on Wednesday afternoon. Table games are not a seven-day...More

We were passing through town on the way to Idaho Springs, when we called in for a drink. To be fair our visit was in the early afternoon so may not be representative of the evening atmosphere. This place was sad, full of lonely people...More
