Eldorado Casino Review
Eldorado is a small locals casino in downtown Henderson, Nevada. It is owned by Boyd Gaming, though you would never know it since the only hint at the connection is that Eldorado’s sportsbook uses Boyd Gaming’s lines and mobile betting app.
Eldorado Casino does not share the BConnected players club with the larger Boyd Gaming casinos. Instead, Eldorado uses Prime Rewards, which it shares with Jokers Wild, located on Boulder Highway a few miles away.
Gaming at Eldorado Casino
There are no table games at Eldorado and there are not any electronic table games either. The 434 electronic machines are about a 50/50 split between slots and video poker, with a few keno machines thrown in. A handful of the games still use coins instead of the newer ticket-in/ticket-out systems. This includes old IGT video keno machines with an attached dauber, as well as some quarter Bonus Poker variants. Their quarter 10/7/5 Double Bonus game (100.17%) is the best video poker game at Eldorado by almost 1% in terms of return.
There are three other 99% games which are 9/6 Double Double Bonus Poker (98.98%), 12/8 Loose Deuces (99.2%), 9/7/5 Double Bonus (99.11%) and 8/5 Bonus Poker (99.17%). The Double Bonus and Double Double Bonus games are spread in quarter, half-dollar, dollar and two-dollar denominations. Loose Deuces and Bonus Poker are only spread in $1 and $2.
There are 5 bingo sessions daily at Eldorado Casino. The times are 1 PM, 3 PM, 5 PM, 7 PM and 9 PM. Guests can buy tickets and watch the drawings almost anywhere in the casino on monitors.
The sportsbook is located next to the keno lounge. It has 35 seats and 12 televisions and was recently remodeled with modern boards and TVs. The Eldorado Casino’s sportsbook uses Boyd Gaming lines. Players can deposit and withdraw from their BConnected mobile sports accounts at Eldorado Casino.
Prime Rewards Player Program
Eldorado Casino uses the Prime Rewards players club. Jokers Wild is the only other casino that shares this loyalty card. All other Boyd Gaming casinos use BConnected.
Slot and video poker players earn one point for every dollar wagered. Points can be converted into $1 in food comps for every 400 points earned. The other option is to turn it into free play at a rate of 800 points for every dollar.
Prime Rewards offers several promotions. New players that earn five points can swipe at a kiosk to receive a mystery amount of points. There are weekly hot seat and point multiplier days.
