Under a vault of 2 million light bulbs and employing a 550,000-watt sound system, a 4-block pedestrians-only stretch of downtown Las Vegas called Fremont Street Experience presents periodic sound-and-light shows from dusk to midnight. Other entertainment on the street includes live music, classic-car displays, and holiday festivals. Like 9 other downtown casino hotels, this hotel opens directly onto Fremont Street, creating a lively flow of pedestrian traffic.

El Cortez Hotel's 40,000-square-foot casino offers blackjack, craps, roulette, mini baccarat, 3-card poker, video poker, both live and video keno, and 1,100 slot machines that accept denominations between 1 penny and 5 dollars.
