They advertise almost 1400 slots, a huge video machine room, and run a decent table game room, though their blending of blackjack and poker tables may not be the wisest choice.

The ampitheatre found here does feature the best live entertainment in the state, avoiding the acts that choke up the stages at other Arizona spots -- these are shows you may actually want to see, like Bob Dylan, Crosby Stills and Nash, or James Taylor.

Make no mistake, the Casino del Sol is an attractive place to gamble. Rivaling the comfort and cleanliness of the Casino Arizona at Indian Bend, this may be the prettiest place to regularly host table games. The "card room" (where games like blackjack and Hold em poker are played side by side) features uncapped bad beat jackpots, daily tournaments, free lessons for beginner groups, and complimentary food in exchange for live play -- imagine that, a Vegas-style comp system here in the desert. Live game limits begin at $1-$2 and cap at around $75-$150, according to the staff at the poker room, who seemed grumpier than your average casino staff when confronted with actual gaming questions. Still, this is one of maybe three 24 hour rooms in the state, and that fact must be appreciated. For table gaming in Arizona to compete with the same gaming elsewhere in the country, 24 hour access is just as important as HD TVs on the walls.
