We don’t know about you, but we’re always in the mood to gather with our group of friends and head to Las Vegas for a weekend trip. If you’re planning on visiting Sin City anytime soon, then you might be wondering where to stay. Luckily, we wrote this review of Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino just for you.
While Bally’s Las Vegas may not be for everyone, it’s a cost effective option for anyone who wants to stay on the Strip while sticking to their budget. With that being said, it’s not one of the most glamorous casinos around and it may not have all the perks you’re looking for. Don’t count Bally’s out just yet though.
In this Bally’s Las Vegas casino review, we’re going to take a deeper look into exactly what Bally’s has to offer. We cover everything including their dining options, the casino games available, and their room amenities. We leave no detail untouched, as we want you to walk away from this review knowing whether or not Bally’s is the right hotel and casino for you.
Bally’s Las Vegas Overview
Address: 3645 S Las Vegas Blvd, Las Vegas, NV 89109
Phone: (877) 603-4390
Location on The Strip
Bally’s has a prime location on the Strip as it’s located next to Paris Las Vegas. It’s across the street from the Cosmopolitan, Caesar’s Palace, and the Bellagio. As it’s centrally located on the Strip, you can get anywhere you want rather quickly.
Considering its location, you can also get incredible views of the Strip, depending on where your room is located. We’ll provide more insight on that later.
Tips for Making the Most Out of Your Trip to Bally’s
This Bally’s Las Vegas casino review wouldn’t be complete without our top tips for how to improve your overall stay.
Consider visiting Bally’s Las Vegas casino during the summer months, as this is when the best rates are available. Since Las Vegas reaches extremely high temperatures in the summer, less people plan trips during the months of June, July, and August. In an effort to attract more players, Bally’s will lower their prices substantially.
To save even more money, book your trip for Monday through Thursday, as the weekday rates are often a third of the price of weekend rates. It’s also better to avoid holidays if at all possible, as the prices skyrocket then too.
Call Burger Brasserie when planning to eat with a large group, as they will need some time to move tables around to accommodate groups of fourteen or more. By calling ahead to give them a head’s up, you’ll be able to get seated right away once your party arrives.
Join Caesars Rewards to get rewarded for all the money you spend while shopping, dining, and gambling at Bally’s Las Vegas Casino and all other casinos owned by Caesar’s. These rewards can be exchanged for free hotel stays, dining vouchers, tickets to shows, and so much more.
Gambling at Bally’s Las Vegas Casino
Their 70,000 square foot casino is packed with high quality casino games. You’ll find over 1250 slot machines there, with popular titles like Buffalo Stampede, Triple Cash Wheel, 88 Fortune Megaways, Sun Dragon, and Crown Gems all available.
Bally’s currently has 65 table games, including different variations of blackjack, roulette, craps, and baccarat. We recommend playing American or European roulette there, as their wheels have been recently updated and it’s exhilarating to watch which color it will land on once the spin is complete. It’s definitely a popular area at Bally’s, so expect a crowd.
The Poker Room at Bally’s Las Vegas Casino
While reviewing Bally’s Las Vegas Casino and Hotel, we discovered that they have one of the longest-standing poker rooms on the Strip, having been around since the early 1970s. It consists of 14 tables that can accommodate up to eight players at once.
A portion of the 2022 World Series of Poker is set to take place at Bally’s this year for the first time ever, so their poker area will certainly be busy then. Most of the time, though, you won’t have a problem finding a spot at their table. Below, you’ll find info on the variants of poker games available for what stakes.
|Poker Variant||Stake Amount|
|Spread Limit Hold’em||$2/$6|
Every day, you’ll have the chance to participate in one of their four no-limit poker room tournaments, all of which come with a $75 buy-in.
Their tournaments rules are as follows:
- Every player receives 20,000 chips
- Blinds start at 100/200
- Blinds increase every ten minutes
- Unlimited reentries while the late registration is open
- There’s a break every hour for players to stretch their legs
Participating in a tournament at Bally’s Las Vegas casino is definitely a bucket-list item that you should try to cross off your list during your stay.

Their sports betting section is phenomenal. It’s filled with dozens of wide screen televisions, so you can watch the sporting events you’re betting on. Just keep in mind that you may want to reserve your seat for larger sporting events a week or two before the event, as there are limited spots available and they can fill up quickly.

Types of Rooms at Bally’s Hotel and Casino
There are three main types of rooms available at Bally’s Las Vegas hotel and casino. We cover each type of room for you below.
The resort room is the cheapest and most basic room available at Bally’s. This room is available for smoking and non-smoking customers. You can always request pet friendly accommodations as well for an additional charge. All of these rooms have been recently renovated, so you can expect a fresh coat of paint and updated decor.
The jubilee room is actually slightly smaller than the resort room, but it’s more expensive because of the great views it offers. They have views of both the Strip and the pool available, depending on your preferences. Another perk of booking a Jubilee room is that it comes with an updated marble bathroom with a luxury shower.
Jubilee Executive Suite
If you want the best Bally’s has to offer, then you’re going to want to book the jubilee executive suite. Not only is this room very spacious, but it offers an extra large flatscreen television that’s perfect for watching movies or streaming your favorite shows.

Dining at Bally’s Las Vegas Casino – Cafes and Restaurants
While writing this review of Bally’s Las Vegas Casino and Hotel, we were a little disappointed with their selection of dining options. They have mainly fast food options, with the exception of the Burger Brasserie, which is a little more high quality.
Still, you’re not going to find fine-dining options available here and will have to go elsewhere on the Strip for those larger ticket priced items like steak or lobster, for example.
Hours of Operation: Sunday- Monday 7am-10pm
This hot dog stand is located in the Bally’s food court and is known for serving the most delicious hot dogs on the Strip. They offer every topping imaginable from mustard and ketchup to relish and sweet onions.
If you’re gluten free, that’s no problem at all as Nathan’s Famous offers gluten free buns and toppings that they store and prepare separately to accommodate allergies.
Pan Asian Express
Hours of Operation: Sunday- Monday 7am-8pm
Also in Bally’s food court is Pan Asian Express, where you’ll be able to get your favorite Asian dishes to go. Some of our preferred dishes include sweet and sour chicken, beef teriyaki, ramen, and chicken yakisoba.
For those of you who have never had chicken yakisoba before, it’s grilled chicken over pan-fried noodles, served with fresh veggies on top. The soy sauce blend drizzled over it is what really brings this dish together.
Hours of Operation: Sunday- Monday 7am-8pm
Most people have probably been to a Subway before, but in case you have never been, they have a build-your-own sandwich station where sandwich artists craft a sub right before your eyes, adding any fresh ingredients you want.
They have an assortment of different subs to choose from like steak and cheese, roast beef, chicken teriyaki, among other varieties. Topping includes different kinds of cheese, fresh veggies, and dressings.
Hours of Operation: 9am- 10pm
While reviewing Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, there was no restaurant that wet our appetites more than Burger Brasserie. Located near the slot machines, this burger joint offers some of the best burgers in all of Vegas.
One of the most popular items on their menu is their Champagne Burger that’s cooked to perfection and topped with a fried egg, white cheddar cheese, and applewood bacon. Other menu items worth trying include their buffalo chicken fries, their lemon garlic parmesan wings, their BBQ chicken burger, and their classic cheeseburger.
Hours of Operation: 24/7
Anytime you need your coffee fix, Lavazza will be there for you as they are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days out of the year. They offer gourmet coffee, juices, and smoothies in addition to sandwiches and salads. This is a great place to meet up with a friend for lunch, as it’s often quiet and hardly ever crowded.
Our favorite drink items on their menu would have to be their espresso macchiato, iced cafe latte, tutti frutti smoothie, and their fresh-squeezed orange juice. Their caprese salad and their salami artichoke baguette are desirable for lunch or a late night snack.
Cuisine: Cafe Variety
Hours of Operation: Sunday- Monday 6am- 4pm
Another great option for breakfast and lunch is the Nosh Deli. They offer decadent breakfast sandwiches like their sausage, egg, and cheddar cheese on a brioche bun or their ham, egg, and swiss cheese on a croissant.
Our go-to option for lunch is their apple walnut salad, which is made with romaine lettuce, kale, apples, red onions, dried fruit, and of course walnuts. Their classic ham and cheese sandwich, which is made with thinly sliced ham, gruyere cheese, and fig mustard is also delicious.
Nightlife at Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino
While reviewing Bally’s Las Vegas Casino and Hotel, we were excited to see four different bars/lounges to meet at for the ultimate Vegas nightlife experience. We provide details on each of these places for you below.
The Lobby Bar at Bally’s is an elegant late night lounge area that’s perfect for bringing your date or meeting up with friends. It features comfortable seating, a self-playing piano, multiple large screen televisions, and a great drink menu.
While they serve dozens of different cocktails, they are famous for their Aperol Spritz. It’s a mixture of prosecco and soda with hints of orange and rhubarb for a exquisite taste you won’t be able to cultivate anywhere else.
As we mentioned before, Las Vegas summers are hot, which is why we’re so excited Shiver exists. This frozen cocktail bar is open into the wee hours of the night to offer an assortment of refreshingly cold beverages for players in need of a cooldown.
They have cold craft and domestic beers available in addition to frozen cocktails in a variety of flavors. Some of their most popular flavors include Captain Crush, Classic Margarita, Pink Lemonade, and Strawberry Rush.
Sully’s Casino Bar
This is an open air bar located near Bally’s front desk. It’s a great place to take a break from the hustle and bustle of the casino floor. You can watch sporting events on the screens at this bar, and even play their built-in video slot machines while you sip on your favorite drinks.
This bar is known for its selection of draft beers which consist of popular options like Big Rock Alberta Genuine, Budweiser Black Crown, Stiegl Radler, and Kokanee.
The Indigo Lounge
While reviewing Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino, no place excited us more than the Indigo Lounge. It’s a spacious lounge with ample seating that overlooks the casino floor; it’s definitely the most sophisticated hang out spot that Bally’s offers.
They have hand-crafted cocktails like Gold Rush, Smoked Old Fashioned, Trinidad Sour, Ginger Martini, Tom Collins, and a plethora of other options.
Entertainment and Leisure at Bally’s Las Vegas Casino
As a casino owned and operated by Caesar’s, we weren’t surprised to find excellent options in the form of leisure and entertainment.
There’s no better place to relax than at the Blu pool at Bally’s. Surrounded by palm trees, this pool offers ultimate relaxation. There are ten cabanas that can be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis and dozens of lounge chairs to relax on as well. A poolside bar is available if you’d like to order a cocktail to sip on while you unwind.
This review of Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino would not be complete without a mention of their shows. We thoroughly recommend checking out a show at some point during your stay. They offer music concerts, comedians, ventriloquists, and magicians, among other performers at their two venues.
This theater seats 1,000 guests at one time and currently has one show playing on repeat for the next couple months and it’s called Extravaganza.
Extravaganza is described like this on their website, “Extravaganza follows the journey of a luckless lad in the midst of a bad, rainy day. His luck quickly turns around when he offers an umbrella to a homeless man, who shows his gratitude with a one-way bus ticket to Las Vegas. The audience is then taken on a whirlwind adventure through Sin City, with its famous landmarks glowing from large 3D-LED screens.”
It’s a longer performance by many talented performers including appearances from:
- Show Girls
- Elvis holograms
- Frank Sinatra holograms
For this performance and many others, you’ll have multiple seating options available: main theater seating, orchestra seating, booths, and tables.
Another great venue for shows that we’ll discuss in this Bally’s Las Vegas Hotel and Casino review is the Magic Attic, which is 3,685 square feet in size. It offers a more intimate show experience, as it can only accomodate 300 guests at a time.
Current performances include:
- Comedy Magician Farrel Dillion
- Magician Lioz Shem
- Paranormal Mind Reading by Frederic Da Silva
- Potted Potter- Harry Potter Parody
As fans of both the books and the movies, we’re most excited for the Potted Potter show. It’s all of the books combined into a 70-minute comedy show and we just can’t wait to see how they manage to pull that off.
General admission tickets, premium, ticks, and VIP tickets are all available.
Other Entertainment Options at Bally’s
Here are a couple other activities you can enjoy during your stay at Bally’s.
Twilight Zone by Monster Mini Golf
Mini-golf is a great activity that the whole family can enjoy. This mini golf course is unique as it’s the only 18-hole glow in the dark golf course on the Strip. It measures in at just over 10,000 square feet and offers hours of entertainment. In addition to golf, you can enjoy bowling and arcade games.
