Casino Royale & Hotel is a casino and motel located on the Las Vegas Strip. The casino caters to low rollers, and features low table minimums for roulette, craps, and blackjack. The casino often employs people handing out coupons inviting people inside and seems to rely heavily on street traffic for their business.
Casino Royale until recently offered 100 times odds on craps at all times. Casino Royale now offers 100 times odds only when offering a $5 minimum bet (usually weekends), and offers 20 times odds when offering a $3 minimum bet (usually weekdays).
Casino Royale, in addition to traditional blackjack, also offers a version of blackjack known as "Blackjack switch".
Casino Royale is known for its promotional slot play. Timeshare promotions in Las Vegas typically give out Casino Royale slot play, to be used at specific machines. This slot play can be a fun way to gamble for free, but may also become misleading if misrepresented by the person representing the timeshare resort.
The first building on this site was Frank Musso's Restaurant, located next door to the Sands Hotel Casino. Musso's was in business during the 1950s and 60's. Later it became Joey's New Yorker Night Club, then the Nob Hill Casino.
The Nob Hill which opened in 1978 was well known as a lower limit place to play and on the Strip in the 1980s. The Nob Hill featured $0.25 craps, and $0.10 roulette with a minimum $5.00 buy in, which was the lowest limit on the Las Vegas Strip.
In the late 1990s Casino Royale had highest odds allowed in craps. The game was a 50 cent minimum bet game,which allowed a player to place 100 times more in the odd bet. It was not uncommon to see 50 cent bets with $25 to $50 odds bets. This was when the rest of the Strip was allowed double to 10 times odds.
Another interesting fact about the casino is that is was one of the last to require drug test for its employees . Many dealers would deal there while their systems cleaned out while applying at the larger casinos.
The Nob Hill closed in 1990.
