The tallest structure in Las Vegas is home to a large hotel and world-class casino. The Stratosphere Hotel and Casino can be seen from anywhere on the Vegas strip – its freestanding observation tower is the highest building west of the Mississippi. While its height certainly stands out, it’s the casino that truly sets the Stratosphere apart.
Located about a five-minute drive from the downtown strip, the Stratosphere Casino can satisfy gamers who are removed from the busiest sections of sin city. Inside the casino, patrons will find an array of unique gaming options as well as the classics. The 80,000 square-feet of Vegas-bliss contains video poker, slot machines, and too many tables to count. In the back of the casino there is a large sportsbook where bettors can be seen watching sporting events at all hours.
The Casino saw significant renovations and upgrades as part of a $20 million repair in 2010. But the updates did not cause the casino games to go up in price. Instead, the Stratosphere is well-known for its affordable gaming options as $5 games can be found throughout the lower level. The Stratosphere was acquired by Golden Entertainment back in October and noticeable changes have already been made to the popular resort.
While it is one of the Stratosphere’s biggest money-generators, the casino is not the top attraction. The observation deck atop the tower is a popular spot amongst tourists. For those who are a little more daring, the Sky Jump fits the bill. This bungee controlled joyride is one of the more thrilling attractions in all of Las Vegas. Premiere cuisine can be found at the Stratosphere as well thanks to restaurants like McCall’s Heartland Grill and 107 SkyLounge. Visitors are encouraged to come inside the Stratosphere for the games and stay for the entertainment.
