    What We Like About The Cal
    • The casino offers low table minimums and full paytables on slots and video poker machines which helps low-budget gamblers stretch their dollar.
    • The casino also offers some of the last coin-operated video poker machines in Las Vegas, which pretty awesome!
    • While we love Fremont Street, the concerts and Viva Vision’s noise can get loud if your hotel room is nearby. California Hotel is a block away, so rooms are much quieter.
