Four Queens Las Vegas
Opened and running since 1966, this vintage hotel is located in Downtown Las Vegas, on Fremont Street. Initially it was constructed with just 120 rooms but now has two tall towers, North and South, and a total of 690 guest rooms and suites.
Four Queens is across from Binion’s Gambling Hall. It’s instantly recognizable as that corner property with the striped golden neon round with the words “4 Queens” above it, reminiscent of the carnival decorations of two centuries ago. They spell their name in print as “Four Queens” but their signage uses a numeral 4. Factoid: The name comes from the original builder Ben Goffstein’s four daughters, Faith, Hope, Benita, and Michele. Here it is on GoogleMaps.
Once you’ve arrived at the casino, you’re center front for the Fremont Street Experience, the roofed casino extravaganza where you can stroll from one to another, because the casinos are only steps apart, with all kinds of street fair sorts of entertainment you can enjoy without bearing the heat of the sun. The crowds here are fun rather than otherwise.
The casino has over 1025 slot and video poker machines, denominations of a penny to $25, with the most common progressive machines (Wheel of Fortune, MegaBucks). They also run a sports book (a William Hill operation), but their poker room seems to be closed. Table games include the usual blackjack, craps, roulette, 3 Card Poker, Let It Ride and Ultimate Texas Holdem; they also have Mississippi Stud and their own Blackjack Switch. Keno has a progressive jackpot of $1 million.
