New Casino Location?

According to the Maz Messenger a new casino opened across the street from El Cid, they just didn't say which El Cid. I would think it would have to be the Marina since there is very little available space at the other El Cids. The article mentioned it is located in the former Las Flores event hall but I have no idea where that would be since the Las Flores is far from any of the El Cids. Has anyone been there and can give a better idea of the location?

The former Los Flores event center is by El Cid El Moro.

It is across the street and just North of El Moro.

This location is also next door to Los Arcos restaurant.

The Casino will be right under the center cross hairs on this view.

Thanks Bob, that's one of those buildings I've probably walked by a few hundred times and just never noticed.

I see exactly where it is, do they have slots?. Is the other casino still open, can't remember the name? I would like to try this year. Thanks.

The Casino's here do not have slots or table games. (They have slots of sort, but playing some sort of Bingo I am told.) They are mostly off track betting on all sporting events. When they get poker, I will go in.

I'm with you Roger. If they had 21 table games and some Texas hold'em I'd spend some time there. The style of casino in Mazatlan doesn't hold much attraction for me.

I guess it is not what I am looking for. Not that I don't have enough to do.

Hi Roger - Hubby and I visit Royale once a week for an hour or so.I thought the machines we were playing were slots (love the crazy gecko game. If they are not slots, they are still fun. 3 months to go!!!!

They used to have poker and 21, etc. in the Casino Royale. Casino Caliente does have some table games like roulette, and toss the dice stuff. They appear to start around 5 pm or so. The machines are fun and more or less like electronic slots (kind of how Vegas is these days, too). They also now have an enclosed smoking area, which is nice.

Rumor has it that another casino is either open, or is opening soon in the Gran Plaza Mall (in addition to the other new one mentioned in the Golden Zone). We will have to go on a "casino crawl" and check it out.

We had a chance to drop by the new casino in the Golden Zone near el Cid. For those that remember The Box, that's the spot. The staff is really nice, and helpful. It was fun and will be handy to tourists staying in that area. They have various machines, no tables, and it's on two levels. The other one (which we haven't visited in it's new location) is in the Gran Plaza. It used to be near the bus station. So that's 4 now, right?
