Went for the breakfast special – stayed for the $1 craps! (With ten times odds.)

My wife and I took an early morning walk at the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve which is only a couple miles north of Jokers Wild. (By the way, entrance to the preserve is free.) After the walk, it was only a short drive to this casino for a bargain of a breakfast (two eggs, bacon or sausage, hash browns, and toast—it’s all good).

The $1 craps table ($2 on Friday-Sunday) opens at nine o’clock each morning. For the most part, it seemed that the players were mostly seniors from the local area. The dealers were all friendly and it was obvious that a few were just learning the game. Drink service was very efficient. Air quality was good—smoke was not an issue.

We enjoyed our experience at Jokers Wild so much, we visited a couple more time while we were in Las Vegas even though we were staying on the south end of LV Blvd. and it’s a bit of a drive to Henderson.

Recommended straight-ahead, no-fluff casino. Excellent cocktail waitress on-duty, Tonia. The pit boss lady, Rosalyn, was both friendly and helpful. Other positive reviews are right on. Low-key and friendly joint on Boulder Hwy & Warm Springs Road.

$1 craps! Dealers are patient with beginners. Rx sunglasees permitted at craps table (helps with bright overhead spotlights). Setting the dice is allowed as long as it's done expeditiously.

Fascinating to eavesdrop on the late-night informal "stickman" knowledge a veteran craps dealer bestowns upon a rookie fresh out of training: "Never cross the table with the stick like this. Gather the dice in the middle, pull, then push them, like this, to the shooter." With the stick he gently shovels the dice to me--all by my lonesome--at the end of the table. "See how smooth that was?".

The slots weren't working for me, but late on a midweek the HVAC had no problem keeping the air relatively free of cigarette smoke. (People still smoking at $9 a pack while snorting through their oxygen tubes against Obama Care??)

I did not eat at this casino, but the marquee advertises Fri & Sat steak & lobster--4 pm to closing. Lots of promos. Player's card applies only to this location and the other Boyd property, The El Dorado. Plans are in the works, reportedly, to unify all Boyd affinity cards.

This place is a locals spot but also great for travellers. The low minimum bets for table games is wonderful with 1$ to 3$ minimums and a wide selection of penny slots makes this a winner

I last reviewed this place 5 years ago. Since then, my wife and I continue to visit it every year during our trip to Las Vegas. We always enjoyed Jokers Wild for its low-limit gambling and the service, but now with most Strip casinos paying 6 to 5 on a blackjack at the $5 and $10 tables (if you can find them), together with them now charging for parking, Jokers Wild is even more of a bargain than before.
Five years after my last review, they still have $3 BJ paying 3/2, and $1 craps ($2 on weekends). Boyd Gaming uses this casino as a training ground for dealers, and the dealers continue to make occasional mistakes; however, knowing this the pit boss typically rules in the players favor. If you are a BJ or craps player who gets upset at an occasional mistake, rule this place out. We do not find this casino any smokier than an average casino. We never eat here, so can’t comment on food. Drink service is very good in general, but does slow down after midnight. It is a 15-minute drive from the South end of the strip, so a car is a must. The place is clean, including the bathrooms, with good lighting in the parking light. We have visited Jokers Wild numerous times over the years and never have observed any unruly behavior. In fact, we feel safer here than walking on the Strip late at night.
In summary, very low-limit games, with fair rules, together with friendly dealers, pit-bosses and waitresses makes Jokers Wild a regular stop during our visits to Las Vegas.

I received more than expected at this little out of the way casino. The employees were friendly and helpful. The $2.49 breakfast was more than expected. The lunch and dinner specials were fine. The real find was the $1 minimum craps table. The table opens at 9:05 am, but be prepared to get there early to save a spot. The locals set up chairs around the table early and gamble for hours. Where else in Vegas are you going to get $10 odds, $1 minimum bets, and a chair at the craps table?
