Often we are asked if there is gambling in Chinatown. While there are no full-blow casinos such as you would find on the strip, Chinatown does have plenty of places to get in some good ole betting action.
Like most places in Las Vegas, gas stations and convenience stores in Chinatown have poker and other gaming machines too. We will list them, but there are much better options on where to bet while eating and drinking in a gambling den-like setting.
Starting east and heading west on Spring Mountain:
There are so many reasons to visit this iconic Las Vegas bar, that gambling is often an afterthought. But what’s not to like about gambling while listening to live music from great bands, and chomping on delicious hand-crafted pizza, there is never a cover charge – even during the holidays when it’s transformed into Miracle on Spring Mountain, when it’s even more of a definite must-visit destination. And yes, in addition to all this, there are poker machines at the bar.
Great beers, Dole Whip drinks, flaming drinks, umbrella drinks, cocktail servers, live DJs, bands, exotic foods, AND poker machines at the bar? What more can you ask for? Open 24/7
