Unfortunately, this once fun and casual casino has suffered more than the larger chain resorts from the dwindling Vegas tourism of recent years. Half of the casino floor is empty save for a handful of cars recognizable from movies and TV shows. One of the draws to the outskirts resort was their mix of old and new, combining the high tech video slots with real coin dollar, quarter and nickel reel machines for a touch of the old Vegas. But the removal of those and barely a half dozen table stations aren't enough to make one want to stay in what are very basic rooms by today's standards, even at rock bottom rates. At best, the Gold Strike is little more than an old West themed rest stop between State line and the Las Vegas Strip with a gas station and a Denny's.
