Been to Vegas several of times, never heard of this casino. Any reviews, like to see something new.

Just visited Greek Isles last Monday night for the "World's Greatest Magic Show." Show was good, theater rather nice . . . rest of the place . . . not so much.

The casino is very small with only slots. The place is rather run down. Didn't see the rooms.

It's located about mid way between the Strip and the convention center on the street (sorry . . . forget the name right now) that runs between Wynn and Peppermill.

I wouldn't bother vegas4, unless you want to see the show.

I visited the Greek Isles Casino briefly when I was in Las Vegas this past March. It is not new. I believe it was formerly owned by Debbie Reynolds. Very small casino with about 40-50 slot machines and no tables.

I heard that it was closing soon, and wanted to see it. We were there in the morning and pretty much had the place to ourselves. We didn't play, but did hvae breakfast. The same guy seated us, took our orders, cooked the food and served it.

Apparently, they still have a showroom and the haunted Vegas tour still departs from this casino. I'm not sure it was worth the stop. It's on Convention Drive around the corner from the Hilton.

AS coffeemug said- there really isn't anything to see in the casino if you are not going to the show.

Yes, it was owned by Debbie Reynolds years and years ago. She had her museum there and they held brown bag lunch concerts there every Tuesday. The casino was not run down but it still didn't have much going for it-even then.

We visited this casino last year to see the rat pack returns show - Now at the Plaza..

As other posters have said it is very run down wirt a small casino - only slots.

In my opinion it is not worth going out of your way to visit it.

The show was fantastic, but the greek isles not so.

Personally I would consider it a dive, which means that I must return some day

When Debbie owned it the sold timeshare in the place. I wonder what happened to all those owners? She also had a very hard time getting her gaming license so it was without a casino until right up until the time she was selling.

We toured the rooms once and they were very nice...back then.

We ate at the Greek restaurant there once and it was below average. The rumor is that the place is likely to close in 2008.

Didn't the Wrestling Federation (or something like that) buy it from her? They were supposed to fix it up but nothing ever became of that.

The Museum wasn't that great but I did enjoy the brown bag lunch concerts. Some of them were quite good!
