    I'll be staying at the Strip again for my next Vegas trip, but want to hit downtown for a few hours. Haven't been there in 10 years and was wondering where I should go.

    I'm interested in low limit blackjack. I also like to play Goldfish slots - any particular places that have a low house edge for that as well as have some of the newer slot games but still has good payouts for the player?

    And generally, what downtown casinos are good for low rollers like me? I'm not a big gambler at all since I prefer to spend my money on more tangible things like fine dining and shows. As well as stay at nice suites. But I do want to spend a little time gambling at low limit places and have a little gambling fun on this trip.

    Thanks in advance!

    The Cal usually has a $3 BJ table. I think it even pays 3:2.

    El Cortez has $3 BJ and is Las Vegas Review Journal's 2012 readers poll winner for it. Voted best slots, and they got your Goldfish one too.

    I stay downtown exclusively these days. I would recommend the Cal and MSS. For craps and video poker MSS is by far the best in downtown, great odds and limits.

    Fremont has one craps table with a $3 limit 24/hrs. It's not always easy to figure out which one is $3, the limit plate is sometimes set to $5. Look for the Pink $.50 chips on the table.

    After so much ElCo love on these boards, I walked through the joint a couple months ago. I cannot stand casinos with low ceilings. The constant clouds of smoke is unpleasant for non-smokers.

    The same problem at Freemont. While $3 dice is appealing, the low ceilings just kill it for me.
