    This thread is fascinating. It's very interesting the different responses you get to the question of "What is the worst casino in Las Vegas?" depending on each individual's priorities, idiosyncracies, etc. To some, it's a dingy, kitschy place like Circus Circus. To others, the "worst" casino is a fancy place where they feel out of place or looked down upon. For still others, it's big crowds, overly expensive food, lack of comps, or rude employees. For me, it's the place where I feel like I have the lowest chance of walking out alive, with my wallet, and un-sexually assaulted. By that definition, the Lucky Club in North Las Vegas edges out the Bighorn (also in North Las Vegas) by a nose, with no other casinos even close. Even the Longhorn, which has been discussed at great length in this thread, is a palace compared to the Lucky Club and the Bighorn in my eyes, because although it's a dump, it's in a much nicer neighborhood where I've never doubted that I'd make it back to my car with everything intact except my dignity.

    A very solid play. However, there's a difference between the patrons and loiterers of the Lucky Club and those of other dives. It's kind of tough to describe, but the look in their eyes as they check you over when you walk in seems to ask, "Is it worth spending another 15-25 in High Desert State Prison for doing this guy in?" To this point the answer each time has apparently been "No", but it's disconcerting being looked at that way nonetheless, and that is the only place in Vegas where I recall feeling that way.

    Great thread, great read, thanks all involved. Gives me some good ideas for places to visit on my next trip. When in Vegas, you got to do Vegas. No matter what, or stay home.
