In 1995 the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino opened its doors in a location just off the strip with much anticipation.
Already known throughout the world for their restaurant and entertainment, this much anticipated casino was well received. However, the Hard Rock Casino is an entire Vegas experience and you have to consider the full ambiance of the venue to really appreciate it.
In fact, although there is a full spectrum of games in a casual, fun environment at the Hard Rock it actually has the lowest revenue percentage from their casino of any other casino in Vegas at just about thirty percent. But this does not mean they are lacking in casino play.
The Hard Rock Casino caters to the younger, 30 and under crowd primarily. It features a contemporary decor and rocking music.
A nightclub, restaurants, pool area and The Joint, their signature music venue are the other attractions that contribute to the Hard Rock’s popularity and revenue.
But if you want to forego all that and concentrate solely on the games, there are plenty to occupy your time with friendly dealers and wait staff to accommodate you while playing in the 30,000 square foot gaming area.
Or, if you are basking in the entire Hard Rock experience and lounging at the pool you can even swim up to one of the pool games for a game of blackjack. You don’t even have to get out of the pool to join in on the fun!
As with any casino, players at the Hard Rock really enjoy slots and this casino delivers. Over 600 machines are available and start at a penny per spin.
The table games that are available at the Hard Rock encompass all the classic games and more modern favourites including blackjack, baccarat, craps, roulette, pai gow, let it ride, big 6 and casino war.
For those who fancy themselves high rollers there are high roller rooms available with triple digit limits. The high limit lounge is a semi private room where you can enjoy over fifty high limit slots machines starting at denominations of $5 all the way through $300.
Table games for high stakes blackjack, poker and more are also available. For those high rollers who really want the rock star treatment, go to the Hells Belle’s pit on weekend evenings where you can enjoy high stakes blackjack dealt by the loveliest of ladies.
But try not to get too distracted by the performing go-go dancers!
As poker is incredibly popular nowadays, all casinos have to offer poker play and the Hard Rock is no exception. For those who like to indulge in poker while in Vegas, the Hard Rock cafe has a unique poker experience.
The Poker Lounge is a luxurious poker only room with a full bar and lounge area. You can enjoy some of the latest poker games and classic favourites. If you play for four hours in the lounge you are even eligible for a significant discount for your hotel stay.
For the sports fan who wants to bet on the big game – whatever big game is currently playing, the sports book is the place to be. It had a traditional sports bar feel and is filled with plasma and big screen TV’s where you can watch the latest while betting on the outcome.
In keeping with the rocking theme, the Hard Rock Casino offers its patrons the Rockstar Club, a membership rewards program where you accumulate points based on your game play.
Becoming a member is free and enables you to receive rewards and exclusive offers and discounts to use at their casino and on their merchandise.
The Hard Rock Casino is a great way to enjoy Vegas in rock star style. It has a great variety of games in a unique atmosphere.
But if you are staying at the hotel you can enjoy all the Hard Rock has to offer from their game play to night life.
