Binion's gambling hall and hotel was opened in 1951 by notorious Texan gambler Benny Binion, who wore gold coins for buttons on his cowboy shirts and spurred the transformation of Fremont St casino hotels from sawdust gambling halls to classy carpet joints. Benny was among the first to offer free drinks for slot-machine players and airport limo rides for high rollers. Today, what appeals most about this bedraggled downtown property is its genuine country-and-western flavor.

Watch cowboys and cowgirls dressed up in their finest duds win big in Binion's famous poker room.
