Laughlin’s eight casinos are all full-service, Las Vegas-style casino/resorts, offering all of the normal games you’d expect, like slots with various denominations, video poker, blackjack, craps, sportsbooks, other table games, poker, and even keno. Two of Laughlin’s casinos have bingo halls.

And just like in Las Vegas, drinks are complimentary to players. You have to be 21 or older to gamble here as well.

On the non-gambling front, you’ll find the usual array of buffets, fine dining, along with movie theaters, and showrooms featuring big name acts. Other recreation options include bowling, river cruises, an outlet shopping mall, beaches along the river, casino swimming pools and more.

Laughlin’s Strip

S. Casino Drive is Laughlin’s version of the Las Vegas Strip, as all eight casinos are just off this main drag.

A nice feature of Laughlin is that most of the casinos are within easy walking distance from each other. And a lot of that walk is a pleasant stroll along the banks of the Colorado River.

Laughlin has done a great job providing a seemingly-safe, pleasantly landscaped Riverwalk that acts as an easy access between many of the town’s casinos.

In fact, the walk from the northernmost casino in town, (Don Laughlin’s Riverside) to the Golden Nugget on the southern end is just one mile. Granted, that walk can get pretty uncomfortable when it’s 110 degrees, (and not all of it is along the water), but the point remains: it’s easy (and fun) to casino hop in Laughlin.

The two casinos on the far southern end of town, Harrah’s Laughlin and the Laughlin River Lodge, are also, technically, walkable for most, however it would be just under two miles from the Riverside to Harrah’s. This would probably feel like twenty miles if undertaken in July, when the average high temperature is 108 degrees.
