Several years ago, we voted this our "#1 casino"---here lately we have been very disappointed. I have tried to ignore it for about 4 visits now, but feel I must say something. We never go gambling with the honest expectation of being big winners, but when we lose money, we like to have fun doing it. We play in here... More

They have great bar. The service is fast and pleasant. They have clean atmosphere and noise is minimal. Great place for quick drink and little gambling.

Like many of the casinos in the area this is a small one, on two floors. Sign up for a players card and play the right machines to get a discounted prime rib dinner. (The prime rib is fine for a lunch but not real restaurant quality for supper. You get a good sized piece of steak but with bland... More

Very friendly staff, and loved that drinks were free while you were gambling. Didn't do good on slots at all, my husband broke even on blackjack table. Blackjack pit boss heard it was my birthday and gave me $30 comp to the restaurant there. Had the prime rib and BBQ ribs and had plenty to take home! Had a great... More

Received offers in the mail but didn't play a whole lot on first visit. We played the slots. They have a good selection of games. While... More

I went to enjoy the discounted prime roast beef meal. I joined the club and was told that I would get a reduced price for my dinner if I played. Then I played slots and after loosing $25 I was still unable to get my $4 off of my meal. They told me about point winning slots but these did... More

Thanks for visiting Johnny Z’s casino in Central City. We value your opinion. Our Prime Rib meal deal does have a point requirement, this is so we can keep the cost down to players, like yourself. Our regular priced Prime Rib is only $7.77 with a minimum of 25 base points earned. Our $3.99 Prime Rib deal, available only on... More
