No frills. Same action. Let’s talk about Dotty’s, the go-to spot for locals in need of a gambling fix without all the glitz and glam of the Strip (or painful drive).

You know, just like Spirit Airlines or Southwest can get you to your destination as well as United or American, Dotty’s is where the real Vegas locals scratch their gambling itch. With nearly 150 locations scattered across Nevada, you’re bound to stumble upon one sooner or later – they’re practically on every street corner, or so it seems!

Now, what’s the deal with Dotty’s besides the homely furniture and the sound of slot machines?

Not much, to be honest. You’ve got your typical gaming devices (15 to be exact, because that’s the Nevada limit for taverns), a limited menu, and a steal of a deal on cigarettes. I’m not a smoker, but let’s just say plenty of video poker players enjoy their butts. But you might be wondering, why bother with Dotty’s when it’s basically just video poker, cheap snacks, and nicotine fixes?

Well, let me tell you a little something from the perspective of my old man, Mr. Vegas, Sr. He’s a regular at Dotty’s, and let me assure you, he’s no stranger to the high-roller life. But he keeps coming back for three simple reasons:

Easy Parking

Picture this – you’re in need of a quick getaway from the daily grind, and the last thing you want is to circle around a parking garage like a lost tourist. At Dotty’s, you can just roll right up to the front door, no fuss, no hassle. It’s like they’ve got a parking spot with your name on it, waiting just for you. Plus it’s well lit and safe – not something to take for granted.

6/9 Video Poker

6/9 or “full pay” refers to how much is paid on the flush and full house in a Jack or Better video poker game. The only 100% reliable way to identify a 9/6 Jacks or Better machine is to check the entire pay table:

  • Royal flush: 250/4,000
  • Straight flush: 50
  • Four of a kind: 25
  • Full house: 9
  • Flush: 6
  • Straight: 4
  • Three of a kind: 3
  • Two pair: 2
  • High pair: 1

While the 99.54% returned on 6/9 may not seem like a big difference than the 98.54% returned on 5/9 – it make a big difference over time to the regular video poker player. And those playing at Dotty’s definitely fit into that category!

Friendly Staff:

Ah, the pièce de résistance. The folks at Dotty’s aren’t just serving up drinks and taking your bets – they’re like old pals who genuinely appreciate your business. It’s like stepping into Cheers, but with video poker instead of beer. And trust me, a little kindness goes a long way, especially when you’re chasing that royal flush.

So next time you’re looking for a slice of Vegas without the glitz and glamour, why not swing by Dotty’s? It’s where everybody knows your name, your game, and your favorite brand of smokes. And hey, if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll even hit it big. Go big or Go home!

Cue the theme music to Cheers…
